Description and Features

Performance Commuting™: Gocycle’s high-powered, lightweight, German micro-sized electric motor is discreetly hidden in the front hub and allows the rider to quickly reach 25km/h and travel for up to 64 km on a single charge depending on pedal input.

Maintenance-free, multi-speed chain drive: Gocycle is the world’s first production bicycle to feature a completely enclosed, three-speed electronic shifting chain drive, with side-mounted wheels. This cutting edge and patented Cleandrive® system, combined with the revolutionary side-mounted and interchangeable PitstopWheel®, means no grease and grime on the rider’s clothes and an easy flat tyre fix.

Environmentally-Friendly Manufacturing, high-tech, durable and ultra-lightweight injection-moulded magnesium frame and wheels (Thixomolding® process produces zero ozone-depleting SF6 emissions)

Gocycle is the world’s lightest production foldable electric bicycle weighing 15.6kg and the first bicycle in history to use a magnesium injection-moulded frame and wheels, called Magflow®.

Portability: Gocycle has the perfect space-efficient solution for urban living thanks to a Pitstop design.
