Pendler

A Crafted Commute

Pendler is a compact urban e-bike that combines high-performance technology with a finely crafted aesthetic to create a new vision for urban commuting that aligns not only with a user’s performance needs for efficient travel, but also their lifestyle aspirations. The material palette celebrates natural materials that contrast with the performance-driven design, aligning two often disparate elements of the cycling world.

Pendler comes with several modular, detachable accessories that enable users to carry shopping and luggage, as well as a phone dock that offers safe and easy access to devices while riding. The compact wheelbase and relatively small 20-inch wheels allow for easy storage and travel on public transport, reducing the complexities involved in urban commuting. In keeping with this approach, the folding pedals and 90-degree turning handles facilitate storage in compact urban spaces where space is at a premium.
