The Bosch Active Line pedal-assist drive system is the perfect electric motor for cruising around town and city commuting. The 250w motor provides assisted speeds up to 20mph and offers 4 different levels of assist to choose from. The fast-charging PowerPack 400 battery can give the bike a range of 20-100 miles depending on mode and terrain.
Flat Foot Technology comes from Electra's specially designed frames that move the bottom bracket farther forward. This allows riders to be able to place both feet flat on the ground without sacrificing proper leg extension, so there's no need to choose between staying comfortable and pedaling efficiently.
