We wanted to create a personal mobility device that touched a nerve with our target audience of active affluents.

Zeitgeist Inc. has launched on Touch of Modern for the start of their four-day sale for the Zeitgeist City electric bike. Zeitgeist ebikes have a classic design with a sleek, upscale twist. Each bike weighs less than 50 pounds and can hit top speeds of 28 mph with as many as 80 miles to a charge.

Exclusively commissioned by Danish bike designer Brian Hoehl, Zeitgeist City is the fastest, most luxurious and lightest bike in its class on American bike lanes today. With features like the Bluetooth controller, easy-to-read LCD display and tail lights, riders can safely utilize their Zeitgeist City off-road and on the streets. Riders can also utilize the “one size fits most” design to share their electric city bike with the whole family.

“We wanted to create a personal mobility device that touched a nerve with our target audience of active affluents,” said Zeitgeist’s product visionary Kartik Ram. “The Zeitgeist City is the first in a series of such products from our Seattle-based luxury brand.”

Zeitgeist City’s frame is built with advanced carbon fiber composites, lined with Kevlar for inner strength. Zeitgeist City’s Shimano XT nine power-assist levels glide riders effortlessly uphill, while Auriga E-Comp hydraulic disc brakes enable abrupt stopping. Other features of the Zeitgeist City include a powerful yet quiet 48-volt, 500W rear hub motor and a removable display that serves as a magnetic key. Each bike features an integrated, long-lasting, quick charging and removable Protanium Lithium-ion battery so riders can enjoy the pedal-powered option of the Zeitgeist City as well.

Zeitgeist Inc. will be officially launching the Zeitgeist City electric bike at South by Southwest on March 13, 2016 in Austin, Texas. It is now available exclusively until February 16, 2016, on Touch of Modern for a “members only” price of $6,499.
