Our Take

The CityZen is both an embrace of and a departure from the classic Dutch bike.

It looks much like a bike you would find in any big American city - narrow tires, sloping top tube for easy dismount, flat handlebar, and powerful disc brakes. All of which speak to a bike that is oriented towards performance and efficiency.

However, when you look a little closer, Dutch origins shine through. The CityZen features a protective chain guard (unique among our Bosch middle motor equipped bikes), full fenders, a rear rack, integrated lighting and a café lock, all of which make for a much more useful and practical ebike.

The Bosch Performance Line  motor paired with the latest 500Wh PowerTube battery is among the most reliable of electric motor systems. On a nimble bike like the CityZen, this Bosch motor will level any hill, even in San Francisco.

Considering carrying your child by bike? The CityZen has the build, power and ride to make it safe and fun. The stock rear rack  works with a Yepp child seat, and the bike frame should work with just about any child trailer.

And if you just need to carry around your stuff or go grocery shopping, the stock rear rack is compatible with most every style of rear panniers.

The Shimano Deore 10-speed drive train makes shifting simple and precise. And with Bosch  shift sensing the motor-assisted ride will always feel smooth and natural.

Quality Schwalbe tires, integrated lighting, comfy seat, and premium grips round out this unique package that may just be your ideal commuter! A sporty ride paired with high-quality Dutch assembly and a refined look and feel.
