Cities have become more focused than ever on building alternative routes for different forms of human-powered mobility. Problem is… they aren’t always useable if the weather isn’t cooperative! Designed specifically for modern bike paths, the Schaeffler ESSENZ allows dedicated riders the option to commute every day, no matter the weather. Its encompassing acrylic hood protects the rider from wind, rain and the elements without sacrificing aerodynamics and its pedal-assist system maximizes the distance riders are capable of traveling. Without obtrusive handlebars, riders can control direction with impeccable precision using an innovative “carving” steer method. Besides being an efficient, exercise-friendly machine, it’s also an exhilarating ride!
