A bike designed for city streets but equally at home on country lanes, the Spirit follows the classic compact long wheelbase format, and applies the high standards of design, quality and specification that we have come to expect from HP Velotechnik.
Comfort is the starting point of this bike. The riding position is designed to give the optimum compromise between long distance comfort and ease of use and is complemented by suspension front and rear. The option of Bionx electric assist must make it one of the best electric bikes you can buy.
The Spirit is suitable for people that are from 150 to 200 cm (5' to 6'7") tall, and the quick seat adjustment means every member of the family can get on and ride in seconds. Adjustment is by sliding the seat on a smooth aluminium rail; as the seat moves forwards it also moves down so shorter people can easily reach the ground, and the seat base and back support are multi-adjustable.
Optional disc brakes give the Spirit powerful and reliable braking in all conditions, keep the bike clean and avoid wear on the rims. For those who want a little assistance there is the Bionx PL250HT SL 48-Volt system offering 423 Wh and 40 Nm at a range of up to 105 km.
To truly appreciate what a breakthrough in personal transport the Spirit represents you have to ride it. With your body cradled in the comfortable seat and the suspension soaking up the road, the Spirit floats around corners and over pot holes. The steering is so light and precise that the lightest touch on the bars is needed to point you exactly where you want to go. Plenty of leg clearance makes U-turns easy and when you have to stop the smallest movement of the leg is needed to put your foot on the ground.
