In a cityscape marked by narrow cobbled roads and nearly as many bicycles as people, cycling in Amsterdam is not only recreational, but a way of life. For centuries, efficient and utilitarian city bikes have been pedaled by countless businesswomen dressed in skirts and heels, college kids with baskets full of books and CEOs in suits and ties. It was from this utopian version of European transportation, that Electra’s Amsterdam was born.

Starting with the archetypal Dutch city bike, we added a hint of our signature forward pedaling to complement the elegant upright posture, and enough performance to successfully dodge potholes while ferrying laptops and lunchboxes.

Whether you’re drawn to a luxury premium model, an artful classic or a streamlined original, every Amsterdam is designed to capture Europe’s everyday cycling state of mind and share it with the rest of the world.
