What is a step-through e-bike?

The idea behind a step-through bicycle originates from the early 1900’s when women would ride bicycles in dresses and skirts. It was not considered ladylike to be riding a bicycle with a dress lifted up by the top tube on a traditional “men’s” bicycle, so the step-through or “women’s” frame was created for modesty reasons. This is where step-through comes from. However, in today's day and era the step-through is a gender neutral bike that everyone enjoys using for the simple fact that it is very accessible. Now this is being incorporated into our Pace 500 e-bike.

Many people associate the step-through bicycle as being for women, however, the step-through bicycles is convenient for any gender. The big advantage about step-through bicycles is that they make it easier and much more comfortable to mount the bike. Your feet will be able to touch the ground and there are no worries about losing your balance and possibly falling while trying to get on it. We really wanted a bicycle that our customers would feel comfortable riding in all while looking stylish as well. Which is why our step-through comes in two colors, celeste and chalk white. We put a lot of time and research creating this step-through e-bike.
