Zeitgeist Launches on Touch of Modern

The Lightest Electric Bike Is Now Available on the Leading Men's Online Shopping Destination

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - February 12, 2016) - Zeitgeist, Inc., an urban mobility company that makes next generation electric bikes and electric scooters, today will launch the Zeitgiest City Electric Bike on Touch of Modern, a curated, online shopping destination for men with over nine million customers. The five-day exclusive promotion will end on February 16, 2016.

Exclusively commissioned by a Danish bike designer with numerous Red Dot Award mentions, Zeitgeist City is the most luxurious, lightest and advanced bike in its class. Touch of Modern is a natural destination for Zeitgeist's product, as they both value design-led disruption from early stage, tech-savvy brands.

"We wanted to create a personal mobility device that touched a nerve with our target audience of active affluents," said Kartik Ram, Zeitgeist's product visionary. "The Zeitgeist City is the first in a series of such products from our Seattle-based luxury brand. We obsess over outstanding customer experiences and most of all, value first-run, authentic products that meld function and fashion."

"Touch of Modern has a penchant for curating smart products with great design, and we look forward to delivering a product that Touch of Modern customers will love," said Gregg Stewart, Zeitgeist's CMO.

Zeitgeist City's frame is built with advanced carbon fiber composites and lined with Kevlar for inner strength. The bike weighs in at less than 45 pounds with an extended-range battery, which is almost 20 pounds lighter than its competitors. Given its weight, the bike can go 80 miles on a full charge. For many riders, they may only need to charge it weekly, over a quick four-hour window. Zeitgeist City's nine power-assist levels glide the rider effortlessly uphill, while vicious disc brakes enable abrupt stopping - a reassuring feature of this designer bike.
