    • Using the Shimano Revo twist shifter is intuitively simple, letting you adjust to meet the demands of your ride
    • Basta headlight is powered by a generator in the front hub and remains on for 4 min. after stopping to ensure your path is lit, even when stopping for lights

    • Tektro linear-pull brakes provide comfortable braking and reliable stopping power
    • Transfer bike rack is ready for cargo, quickly accepting panniers or trunk bag (sold separately)—great for carrying groceries or work essentials
