Serial 1 Launches SWITCH/MTN

The Harley-Davidson-backed e-bike company takes the next step towards becoming a full-line e-bike manufacturer with a new eMTB.

The Harley-Davidson-backed e-bike company takes the next step towards becoming a full-line e-bike manufacturer with an eMTB.

Serial 1 launched the special edition, knobby-tired BASH/MTN bike just a few weeks ago. That bike— limited to just 1,050 units— was based on the Harley-Davidson inspired MOSH/CTY frame, and was a solid forked, hardtail “mountain bike” of a type not seen since the 1980s.

This new one? It’s different.

Ford starters, it’s built around what seems to be a beefed-up version of the more expensive RUSH/CTY SPEED aluminum frame. Unlike the BASH/MTN, the new SWITCH/MTN has front fork suspension in addition to a shock-absorbing seat post, for more off-road capability than you might expect from the more urban-focused BASH.

Serial 1 says that its new eMTB is, “extremely off-road capable,” and, “designed for active adventurers who want a versatile and fun way to explore the backcountry.”

Backing up those claims are the previously-mentioned SR Suntour’s premier ZERON35BOOST AIR fully adjustable suspension fork TranzX dropper seat, as well as grippy, high-volume Michelin E-Wild knobby tires for excellent all-surface traction. Drivetrain components come from SRAM’s SX Eagle line-up, including a 1×12 gearing combination controlled with E-bike-specific trigger shifters, while braking is handled by a set of TRP Slate T4hydraulic disc brakes with powerful, four-piston calipers designed for fade-free performance, even on very long, fast descents.

Four specially tailored ride modes and a “walk assist” mode, along with a maintenance-free Gates belt drive, ensure that riders of all levels will be able to get the most out of their new Serial 1 eMTB.
