Land speed records every day
The Skitch is the ultimate city-slicking, traffic-flicking, alleycat-slipping, rat race-escaping teleportation device. The powerful and light motor gives you a nudge to spend less time behind a glass windscreen and more time with your knees in the breeze. You’ll look for even more excuses to get on your bike because even a city commute can be as much fun as bike park laps.

Drive Unit / Battery
Fazua Ride 60 – With 60Nm of torque, this class 3 (28mph) drive unit is blazing quick. Lighter than a full-power system, this brings natural and strong power delivery at low cadence, delivering excellent range (60 miles). Its performance is adjustable with the Fazua app, so you can tweak each of the three modes (Breeze, River, and Rocket) to your liking. Getting up to 450 watts of assistance is remarkable on the road! The controls also feature a USB-C port to charge your phone or GPS while you ride. With nearly zero internal friction, you can propel this bike without assistance, too.
430Wh Integrated Battery – This high tech battery charges from empty in about 3.5 hours, and its integration into the overall design is seamless.

SRAM Rival – The Rival hydraulic disc brake offers optimized stopping power and modulation for road or cyclocross. The brake lever features the HydroR brake platform, with revised ergonomics for better finger wrap. Enjoy seemingly effortless braking regardless of terrain or condition.
SRAM Paceline Centerlock Rotors | 160mm – Paceline disc brake rotors incorporate the elegant design of SRAM's eTap AXS road groupsets and feature a new brake track vent design for smooth, quiet braking performance.
Schwalbe G-One Overland Evo Tires – For commuters, adventurers, and ebikers, the durability and high grip of these tires is optimal. Designed to be very smooth on pavement without sacrificing cornering grip on rough surfaces, these are the perfect 50% road / 50% off-road tires.
Easton ARC Offset 25 Rims on DT Swiss 370 Hubs – With a redesigned rim profile, the new ARC Offset rims utilize an asymmetrical design to optimize spoke tension balance, wheel durability and wheel stiffness. New 6069 Alloy provides a superior strength to weight ratio over the previous generation of ARC, significantly improving toughness. A tubeless ready bead and offest design mean these rims are ready to hit any trail with confidence. Laced to industry favorite DT Swiss 370 hubs, this is a very capable wheelset.
