The Batspad / En Route eBike is perhaps the most Bespoke, Bothered and Bewildered eBike that we’ve come across in quite a while.
Born from a collaboration between the French design studios NoDesign and Services Généraux, the Batspad / En Route is an eBike that will delight urban cyclists with its blend of bespoke craftsmanship, cutting-edge technology and bold aesthetics, while leaving other brands forced to out-source their products, bothered and bewildered.
First presented at this year’s Bicyclette exhibition at Cité du Design in Saint-Etienne, the Batspad / En Route was part of an exhibit themed “Making Bikes”, placing strong emphasis on local production and sustainability.
Made-to-measure in France, the Batspad /En Route’s frame features aerospace-quality steel tubing, along with carefully selected parts from European and French manufacturers that extol its artisan nature, while seamless, power assistance comes courtesy of a Mahle Ebikemotion X35 electric hub-drive motor.
Indeed, the bike’s “build” comprises exclusive components that include Hope brakes that are made in the United Kingdom, an Ingrid crankset that’s machined and assembled in Italy and Mavic aluminum wheels with Aivee hubs and Mach1 spokes that are made in France.
There’s no word on pricing or availability for the Batspad / En Route, just a waiting list that you can sign-up for here.
