Speed bikes beat traffic jams, use 20x less energy than electric cars and are 20x more exciting than public transport. Perfect for getting to work, if only the countless potholes, bumps and curbs wouldn't spoil the fun. We built ÅSKA to turn bad roads into more fun, and make your commute something to look forward to — every day again.
Even the most treacherous and pothole-littered roads are fun if you have this much give and go. With serious torque, top-notch suspension and 29” wheels, this is a speed bike worthy of its name - able to go full-throttle where others shy away.
ÅSKA is built to responsibly outsmart traffic. Smooth and playful on-road, snappy and shredding off-road. Transform your everyday rush hour into a“what-a-rush” hour. Thrilling adventures await you at every next corner.
For ÅSKA, safety means maximum control and traction on every surface and in all conditions. No fluffy gadgets, but state-of-the-art components that make you a safer rider by helping you be a better rider, wherever you're riding. Booming front and rear lights turn night into day for superior vision and visibility.
ÅSKA BIKE developed its propriatry 1kWh battery (48V), compatible with the Neodrivessystem. This will give you 60km range at full 45kmh and in real life conditions. Or a lot more at non-maximal support levels and lower speeds. We are using latest generation Samsung cells, ensuring top-end energy density. Designed and built in Europe - Belgium!
We built ÅSKA to be your everyday workhorse for many years to come. The problem with today's highly integrated mid-engine e-bikes is that they can't be upgraded and become outdated in just a couple of years. ÅSKA's design is modular so that when better components and technology becomes available, you can retrofit those on the bike you already have instead of buying a completely new one. (On that note, we can't wait for batteries with 50% more power for the same weight and volume to become available.) As for choice of materials, we go for quality, durability and circularity. Aluminium is one of the materials with one of the highest recycling track records out there.
Because we want the power where we need it! No need to pump the power of the motor through the transmission. The combination with a Pinion gearbox and the low maintenance Gates carbon belt is the best choice for high-end speed bikes.
People on the waiting list will get the exclusive opportunity to buy before the rest when we launch ÅSKA on the market. Say you're #11 on the waiting list, then you'll be person #11 we contact to ask if you're still interested.

We highly value manufacturing in Europe. The frame is 100% developed and built in Europe, same for most key components and assembly. If a component is not from Europe, it's because the European market doesn't currently offer valid alternatives.

ÅSKA is Swedish for "thunder". It's about love for the great outdoors, knack for adventure and a no-nonsense attitude combined with green innovation, clean energy and responsible use of materials.

We go for top service: fast and at your favourite spot. We will invest in giving selected retailers the maximum support. You will soon find our dealer network on our website.
We will distribute through a network of selected high-quality dealers. Dealers with extensive experience in speed pedelecs, in order to ensure professional advice and after-sales support.
You will be able to test our bikes at these dealers' shops, as well on test events (stay tuned, more info to follow!). We'll help you to get started and make sure you have a great experience from the very first pedal stroke.
At launch, you will be able to pre-order through the website. Also the pre-odered bikes will be distributed through our dealer network: reservation on the website, sales through the dealer!
You can pre-order your ASKA bike on our website. We will charge a 10% reservation fee and apply a 30 days withdrawal right (full refund).

First deliveries are reserved for the people on the waiting list who pre-ordered their ASKA bike before the end of August
Our pre-order tool allows for a differentiation between purchase or leasing. If you will lease your ASKA bike via your employer, we ask you to personally pay for the 10% reservation fee.
