Using Shimano's STEPS e-Bike Drive Unit the Highgate is able to take advantage of the pedal assist without compromising the weight distribution and therefore the handling of this compact fit bike.
The Highgate comes fitted with 650b wheels and 47c Road Plus, WTB Byway tyres. These offer great comfort with better grip and security on rough urban roads or light off road rides.
Integrated lighting, controlled from your STEPS head unit gives you fingertip control of your lights for year-round usage. These powerful lights make night riding easy but also give you the ability to use them as daytime running lights for extra visibility.
