Bird, known for its rentable electric bike and scooters, is now launching Bird Bike—an e-bike you can purchase. The bike was created to help meet the ever-increasing demand for micro transportation, especially outside of the large cities where Bird’s rentals are typically limited to.

“The future of transportation is all-electric. By expanding Bird’s consumer and shared products to include e-bikes as well as e-scooters, we are uniquely positioned to lead the revolution to eco-friendly transportation for the billions of annual trips that are five miles or less,” stated Travis VanderZanden, CEO and Founder of Bird. “With our new e-bike, we are creating increased opportunities for people to embrace micro electric vehicles beyond the 300 cities we partner with to provide our shared services today.”

The consumer-level e-bike blends its stylish aesthetic with Bird’s advanced technology and safe design, all while expanding access to eco-friendly mobility options anyone can take advantage of. And honestly, it looks much cooler than the company’s bright blue rental e-bikes (thankfully).

Bird Bike features a thumb throttle just like the ones seen on most rental e-scooters; so, if you’re already familiar with those, the Bike will be easy to use. It’s powered by a 500W Bafang rear hub motor, a Gates carbon belt drive, and has a 36V/12.8Ah battery with LG cells that should give you up to 50 miles on a single charge. Plus, Radius CX7 mechanical disc braking assures you’ll be able to come to a stop right when you need to.

The Bike boasts an integrated LCD panel that’ll show your current speed, the distance you’ve traveled, and its battery capacity. Integrated high-vis LED lights ensure you’re visible to cars, pedestrians, and other cyclists in dim areas or at night, and Kenda puncture-resistant tires will help reduce the chance you’ll end up with a flat in the middle of nowhere.

With a fully adjustable seat height, users of all heights can set the bike up to their unique and specific needs. The commercial-grade aluminum alloy frame will hold up to daily wear and tear, and the Pedal Assist feature goes up to 20mph to help you have a more efficient ride. The bike also has an IP65+ rating for water and dust resistance, and even sports Bluetooth so you can check on your Bike’s battery level, for example, via the Bird app (iOS/Android) without having to check in person.

You can purchase a Bird Bike today, in either Stealth Black or Gravity Gray, through the company’s site for $2,299, though there are limited quantities. The Bird Bike will be more widely available in the U.S. and Europe sometime later this Fall in both V-Frame and A-Frame configurations, so you’ll have plenty of time to save up before you purchase it.
