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.
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
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.

From the BOSCH Performance Line
WITH BALANCED PAYLOAD
Resulting from heavy duty construction
Optimizes the human effort
More Stability – More Confidence – Heavy Payload – Easier Maintenance
Easier Tuning – Easier Adjustment – Better Performance
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.
PROPRIETARY GROUND-TRACING SUSPENSION TECHNOLOGY.
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.
More Torque – Extended Boost – Perfect Control – Maximum Agility
Natural Riding Dynamism – Thermal Stability
PERFORMANCE LINE + POWERTUBE 500 + KIOX
The E/1 offers high power, smoothly delivered. For E/1’s motor we have chosen the world-leader e-bike option on the market, the very latest Bosch Gen 4 Performance Drive—with long-lasting assistance from the Bosch Powertube battery, with its 500 watt hour performance. They’re paired with the latest Bosch KIOX stem-mounted controller head unit, intuitive to use with a clear, easy-to-see screen and Bluetooth connectivity, enabling easy access to the Bosch system via a smartphone.
BEING RESPONSIBLE DOESN’T REQUIRE COMPROMISING.
With every outing on the E/1, you’re eschewing petrol and adopting a thoughtful balance of human and electric power. The very latest Bosch Gen 4 Performance Drive, cleverly integrated within the frame, delivers superior range with near-zero maintenance.
Simple Adjustments – Easier Maintenance – More Optimized – Upgradable
Secured Battery – Hidden Drive – Clean Design
HOUSES THE SEAT MAST, BATTERY, MOTOR, AND SUSPENSION COMPONENTS
The E/1’s hydroformed aluminum frame is designed to have a low center of gravity for balanced handling. The geometry, tube design, material choices, and suspension combine for a driving position that is comfortable, efficient, and effective. Built with unique injection molded carbon reinforced polymers, the integrated seat mast offers tool-free height adjustment and grants easy access to the lockable battery inside. The exclusive E/1 Suntour fork combines the strength and stability of an enduro-focused steerer, ideal for a multi-purpose e-bike.
STANDARD ON ALL MODELS
FIND THAT HARD-TO-DESCRIBE FEELING IN EVERY NEW JOURNEY.
Every aspect of our all-new PMV, from fit to finish and everything in between, has been meticulously scrutinized, exceeding standards for simplicity, beauty, and performance. While your next chapter is yet to be written, you can embark with confidence knowing your E/1 will help ignite a newfound connection to the world around and the individual within.
