There’s been a lot of speculation over the last few months that Greg LeMond was planning on throwing his hat back into the bicycle market, but few would have guessed it to be e-bike segment.
Indeed, LeMond has announced the launch of a new range of carbon fiber e-bikes aimed at capturing the interests of city-dwellers looking for a versatile, lightweight assisted bike.
The range consists of two models, the Daily, which has a traditional toptube with straight bars, and the Dutch, with a step-through design with swept-back bars.
“A novelty just a few years back, today e-bikes are a rapidly growing market segment, changing how we live, commute, recreate, and enjoy our surroundings,” says LeMond.
“The Daily and The Dutch are cutting-edge in every way, from the integrated technology and modern design to being incredibly lightweight. Cycling has always been my passion and I’m excited to see more people out riding, and e-bikes are making that happen.”
“The bikes are just the starting line. For the past five years we have been driving toward developing a vertically integrated carbon fibre platform. From this position, a whole ecosystem of products under the LeMond bike brand will be developed,” adds LeMond’s son Geoffrey, the company’s chief strategy officer.
Both bikes feature a MAHLE ebikemotion rear hub motor, with an integrated battery in the down tube and an integrated LED front light, as well as carbon fiber mudguards and a built-in rear light.
Additionally, both models are equipped with a 1x Shimano GRX 11-speed groupset, hydraulic disc brakes and have tubeless-ready alloy wheels.
Customers can also upgrade to the electronic GRX Di2 groupset, along with a Brooks saddle.
Pricing for the two models will start at around $4,800, which will be sold directly through LeMond’s website.
