Rock Down to the Indie VLT

The Indie VLT turns up the volume on urban adventure

If you want to escape the ordinary and colour outside the pristinely paved lines of city riding, the Indie VLT’s electric boost opens up a wide range of new riding possibilities.

The Indie VLT is custom built for the urban cyclist with features focused on versatility and convenience to effortlessly integrate riding into daily life.

With a state-of-the-art Shimano STEPS electric drive system seamlessly mounted into its aluminum frame, it’s easy to ride, simple to operate, and gets around town quickly – for business and pleasure.

Included fenders, rack and integrated light system ensure the Indie VLT is totally prepared to tackle the urban landscape, even when you aren't. The smooth-riding 27.5" tires, secure through-axle wheels and a removable Shimano in-tube battery ensure that, no matter where you ride or how you get there, you'll arrive in style and park with confidence.

Low key, high tech alloy frame

The Indie's VLT's all-new smooth welded alloy frame is built with full Shimano STEPS integration in a lightweight, tough frame that will deal with anything the city dishes out and is a blast to ride – and we also made it available with a convenient step through design.

Removable downtube battery

The fully sealed 504Wh Shimano E8035 in-tube battery is stealthily mounted, and easily removed for convenient off-bike charging, and secure, confident parking.

Shimano STEPS – all the power you need

The best-in-class Shimano STEPS drive system, including E6100 display and E6100 motor, will extend every ride with up to 180km per charge, provide the perfect amount of assist and you can ride with confidence knowing it’s supported by a worldwide network of Shimano service specialists.


Integrated lights, fenders, and rear rack makes the Indie VLT ideal for around-town adventures and the dropper post allows for quick adjustment for stop lights and it also allows for simple saddle height adjustment so everyone can ride within seconds!
