The Skitch is the ultimate city-slicking, traffic-flicking, alleycat-slipping, rat race-escaping teleportation device. The powerful and light motor gives you a nudge to spend less time behind a glass windscreen and more time with your knees in the breeze. You’ll look for even more excuses to get on your bike because even a city commute can be as much fun as bike park laps.

Drive Unit / Battery
Fazua Ride 60–With 60Nm of torque, this class 3 (28mph) drive unit is blazing quick. Lighter than a full-power system, this brings natural and strong power delivery at low cadence, delivering excellent range (60 miles). Its performance is adjustable with the Fazua app, so you can tweak each of the three modes (Breeze, River, and Rocket) to your liking. Getting up to 450 watts of assistance is remarkable on the road! The controls also feature a USB-C port to charge your phone or GPS while you ride. With nearly zero internal friction, you can propel this bike without assistance, too.
430Wh Integrated Battery–This high tech battery charges from empty in about 3.5 hours, and its integration into the overall design is seamless.
Fazua Road Controller
SRAM Apex–Eagle range (12 speeds) on a drop bar bike? Now, that's a party! The Apex Eagle rear derailleur quietly and quickly shifts across 12 speed Eagle cassettes, while 1x-specific chain retention technology keeps the chain where it needs to be. The best of SRAM's road and mountain bike innovations in one package, this is a perfect mechanical groupset for gravel, adventure, and commuter biking.
SRAM Apex–This 2-piston hydraulic caliper brake brings control and power in every condition. Made from forged aluminum, the caliper benefits from SRAM's history in MTB braking systems, and the lever body design offers excellent finger wrap, control, and comfort.
Avid Centerline Rotors–Centerlock | 160mm
Schwalbe G-One Overland Evo Tires–For commuters, adventurers, and ebikers, the durability and high grip of these tires is optimal. Designed to be very smooth on pavement without sacrificing cornering grip on rough surfaces, these are the perfect 50% road / 50% off-road tires.
WTB EXR i23p Rims on DT Swiss 370 Hubs – Made from industry-standard 6069 aluminum alloy, these rims are strong, light, and durable. They have asymmetric and angled spoke hole drilling to evenly distribute spoke tension, a 23mm inner width to match today's gravel tires, and are built for tubeless setups. Laced to tried and true DT Swiss 370 hubs, they're ready for the many rough miles ahead.
