All Winner 2022 Urban


The VAAST E/1 is a technical masterpiece and wonderfully comfortable at the same time. The developers at VAAST have succeeded in creating a full suspension commuter with a step-through monoframe. They’ve taken a whole new approach to suspension design, hiding it inside the frame. The front and rear triangle consists of just one part. The innovative NAILD R3ACT suspension offers 100 mm travel at the rear. By decoupling the rider’s weight, seat mast, its integrated battery, motor and luggage rack from the unsprung mass, the bike offers an unprecedented level of riding comfort. At the same time, the VAAST E/1 uses a powerful Bosch Performance Line CX motor, low-maintenance GATES belt drive and electronic Rohloff gear hub that offers both lively and relaxed handling. Our jury loved the concept. If your (sub-)urban adventures include everything from asphalt to bumpy roads, then the VAAST E/1 is the bike for you.
