Get a feel for this exceptional bike with the "ride in Brooklyn" video or the brand story as told by brand founder Paul Budnitz.

Budnitz Model E is the lightest electric bicycle in the world.

Magically conquer the hills of any commute. Effortlessly maintain cruising speed all day. Push your boundaries with an incredible range of up to 100 miles. And virtually eliminate the need to plug in at home.

Model E is about simplicity and fun," said Founder Paul Budnitz:

“There’s no external battery, no greasy chain, no complicated gearing – and it’s extremely lightweight. It feels like magic, you just hop on and go. Suddenly you find yourself giggling like child for the first time in years. And you never want to get off.”
