Whether you're heading to the office in the morning or a restaurant in the evening, Active Line makes urban mobility enjoyable – even during rush hour. Controlled, lightweight and quiet, it is ideal for navigating city streets. Its controlled acceleration and barely perceptible pedal resistance over 20 mph or in Off mode make every ride a pleasant experience. Its elegant design has won a Red Dot Design Award. The drive unit integrates perfectly into the bike frame, making handling and life a little easier thanks to its low weight.
