Introducing the "E-Cruz" by Vintage Electric / Color = Cola
California-based Vintage Electric™ wheeled onto the electric bike scene in August of 2013 with the debut of its flagship model, the E-Tracker. The bike gained widespread attention as the “E-Flyer”, a bespoke E-Tracker created by Vintage Electric for car manufacturer Icon 4x4.
Vintage Electric has captured a global audience by bringing to their customers high-performance bikes with hardy functionality and classic design. The “next-generation” or “throw-away” mentality of so many products today has no place at Vintage Electric. These bikes are built to stand-the test of time – like the kind of barn-find restoration pieces that gear-heads dream about discovering.
Vintage Electric’s newest model is a classic California cruiser with design elements reminiscent of the American Art Deco movement. The company’s dream-child and inception model, the E-Tracker, draws its inspiration from the outlawed board-track motorcycles of the early 1900s. Vintage Electric’s newest model, the CRUZ, also evokes a bygone era.
Offering the same best-in-class performance as the E-Tracker, the CRUZ leads the industry with a top speed of 36 mph in race mode. Regenerative breaking, coupled with Shimano Alfine hydraulic disk brakes, provides riders with stop-on-a-dime control. In the same fashion as its counterpart, the CRUZ’s top-caliber components include a sandcast aluminum battery box, powerful LED lighting, Phil-Wood front hub, and a Brooks England Ltd leather saddle and grips. A powerful 52-volt battery gives the CRUZ 30 miles of ride capability and requires minimal charge time – it takes just two hours to fully recharge. The stained alder wood frame inlay and cast pewter name badge sings the final note for this model’s signature look, which starts at $4,995.
Vintage Electric’s CRUZ adds a new chapter to the story of electric transportation – one in which stellar design and performance are not just achievable, but expected.
