Rethink.

How would you like to go from A to B? E-bikes support you in going up the mountain and through headwind, but how much help do you really need? More range, more power and therefore more weight is the trend. But that trend also has an impact on the environment.

fortyfive dared to ask itself the question about the sense and nonsense of all that extra power and capacity. Because biking is also something you do yourself. How do we enable our customers to bike effectively and comfortably? That depends not only on electrical power, but also on weight, comfort and optimal ergonomics

  • Suspension. Good suspension increases comfort. By making smart use of the properties of the material, we designed an optimally sprung frame without extra parts. The wide tires also contribute and provide extra low rolling resistance.
  • Support. Here too, we opted for less is more. By combining a small rear-wheel motor and a light battery, we created a lightweight e-system without a display.
  • Looks. If you look through your eyelashes you might see the frame resembling a jumping deer. Light, graceful and fortyfive
Design.

For fortyfive we sought for a new standard regarding comfort.

  • Posture. We came up with a handlebar and a saddle that make it easy to adopt the right posture in all circumstances.
  • Weight. Decreased weight makes your bike more pleasant to use. That's why we built the frame from elements of chromoly steel, the technology we borrowed from the lightweight track bikes. With less than 22 Kg you can easily take it out of your bike shed and lift it onto your bike carrier.
