The ultimate chain drive HSD!
This HSD is mighty but mini just like the P9 and P9 performance but now with speed!

Experience the do it all bike at 28mph with the new Bosch Performance Line Sport motor and their 500wh lithium ion 'Powerpack' battery. This model has upgraded brakes for extreme stopping power and added luxury items like a cane creek adjustable suspension seat post.

Fifteen seconds and the HSD transforms into a flat package that's perfect for fitting into SUVs, station wagons, or bus storage compartments. Despite its diminutive stature, the HSD is a mid-sized cargo bike with some serious hauling capacity. With a maximum gross vehicle weight of 374 lb and an XL-sized Atlas H Rack, it'll carry a week's worth of groceries or camping equipment for the weekend. It even has a dedicated trailer mount, so adding extra cargo is a cinch. The HSD flips up for convenient vertical parking. Take it upstairs in an elevator and park it inside at home or at work—it needs just a wee bit of floor space. With a longer wheelbase and extra-low center of gravity, the HSD is smoother and more stable than your standard ebike. Easy-Step frame design paired with an adjustable stem and seatpost offers a comfortable upright riding position for both taller and shorter riders. Add a suspension fork and balloon tires, and even the meanest cobblestone roads are comfortably navigated.

The best things in life are meant to be shared, and the HSD is one of them. The HSD resizes in seconds to fit riders from 4'11" to 6'5", so everybody in the family—from teens to grandparents—can enjoy the ride. The Easy-Step frame design is nice and low for easy mounts and dismounts.
