The one has arrived

Breaking new ground isn't for everyone. That's why we do it.

Introducing the all-new VAAST E/1—A first-of-its-kind pedelec stunningly engineered with a fully integrated monoframe that hides and protects the components within. Clean-cut and extraordinarily responsive, the E/1 is the purpose-built partner for maneuvering within your interconnected world. Imagined, then invented, as a fusion of utility, comfort, power, and handling. So much more than a bicycle, the E/1 is the beginning of a new breed of Personal Mobility Vehicles (PMV) designed for a lifestyle unbound, untethered, and uncommon.

Three spec levels, endless adventures

ROHLOFF, ENVIOLO, or XT/SLX, it's not just another line of e-bikes, it's better personal transportation that has factored into its design all aspects of a commuting lifestyle

One with the driver

Purpose-built partner tailored to the urban explorer.

Continuing our practice of using only materials optimal for the task, our physics-friendly aluminum monoframe puts the center of gravity of the vehicle at the lowest possible location, creating an exceptionally grounded but agile, sport-tuned feel. The E/1 positions you as the driver, not a rider.

One with the road

Pioneering technology for a confidence-inspiring ride.

Combining comfort with efficiency, the E/1 isolates pedaling load from suspension movement to minimize energy loss and maximize the impact of human effort. Our innovative ground-tracing technology optimizes the dynamic mass of the driver and vehicle individually, keeping you in a constant state of levitation as the vehicle adapts to the undulations of the road. As a result, useful-sized payloads may be carried with safety and speed untouched until now in a human-powered electric vehicle.

At the heart of the E/1 is the NAILD suspension system—uniquely designed to enable optimal urban riding. Ground-tracing technology optimizes the mass of the driver, keeping them stationary as the bike moves to accommodate the undulations of the road below. Designed to be more efficient when carrying increased weight and travelling at higher speeds. It is the only system to suspend the rider, cargo, and drive-system all together, delivering market-leading ground contact, traction, and control.
