The Gocycle GS
The Gocycle GS is perfectly designed for commuting, running errands, or just having fun! Don’t put off buying an electric bike any longer. Owning and riding a Gocycle GS is your chance to start living a more active, healthy and sustainable lifestyle.
Our patented quick-detach Pitstopwheels make folding down the Gocycle GS easy. The side mounted design not only looks great but makes it quick and easy to remove the wheels and make fixing a flat tire a no sweat deal.
The multispeed enclosed chain drive keeps all the oily parts away from your clothes. It comes in a range of great colours: Red, Blue, Pink, Light Blue and Black, to match a grey or white front frame.
Gocycle provides contact points in exactly the same place as a large-wheel bike – but with more adjustment to fit more riders. The Vgonomic™-designed seat-post and frame geometry, combined with height and reach adjustable handlebars, provides adaptable fitting with superior comfort levels for a wide range of body types.
At only 16.5 kg (36.3 lbs) including kickstand and folding pedals, the Gocycle GS is one of the lightest electric bicycles on the planet!
Convenient and easy to use, the ShockLock™ is a cable lock that comes standard with every Gocycle GS so you can head to the coffee shop right out of the box.
The Gocycle kickstand is made of durable and strong aluminium with dual legs to stand your Gocycle upright securely. Dual piston spring design and double bearing support give the kickstand a smooth and strong folding action. The kickstand is included with the Gocycle GS.
The Gocycle GS comes with the free GocycleConnect™ App that allows you to personalise your ride, adjust speed and power settings, and provides you with health stats like calories burned, power output, trip data and more…

Unboxing the GS
The Gocycle GS has been designed for easy and straight forward setup so you can get riding fast.
The Front Pannier
Probably one of the most useful Gocycle accessories! Our bespoke front pannier is easy to attach and remove, extremely versatile – from carrying your work stuff to groceries, and looks great too!
The Docking Station
Our portable docking station makes stowing the Gocycle GS easy. Clean and moulded deck design for intuitive stowing. Stable four caster-wheel base for effortless transport. Durable and protective zip fastened cover.
Mudguards and Lights
German-made, high-quality front and rear lights and front and rear mudguards are available. The lights run off the main Gocycle battery pack and their quick fit design makes fitting them to your Gocycle GS very easy.
The Gocycle Lock Holster is a Sold Secure Silver rated lock for added security. It fits neatly and discreetly onto the side of the frame in a handy location for easy and fast locking.
The Rear Luggage Rack
The new for 2018 rear luggage rack is designed specifically to work with your Gocycle. It will fit your favourite modern pannier bag and is also quickly detachable so you can use it only when you need to!
Build your Gocycle GS into the ultimate commuting electric bicycle by fitting all of the fully integrated Gocycle accessories – lights, mudguards, Lock Holster, and rear luggage rack!
Building the first GS prototype
Easy on the Planet
We use environmentally-friendly magnesium to create the Gocycle GS’ high-tech, durable, ultra-lightweight frame and wheels. It’s the only bicycle in the world to have an injection moulded magnesium frame and wheels. The special process is known as Thixomolding® and does not produce any ozone depleting SF6 emissions, but will still give the rider the similar weight and structural benefits as carbon fibre. Magnesium is widely available and easy to re-cycle.
The Fastest Wheels
Gocycle Pitstopwheels are the fastest bicycle wheels in the world!
GS Prototype Design and Testing
One of the new parts that we developed for the Gocycle GS is the oversized handlebar. It’s hydroformed (that’s where you inject high pressure oil into an aluminium tube to form it out into a moulded shape) meaning we can route the cables cleanly, make a chunky handlebar that looks great and is structurally better – lighter and stiffer! All of the GS parts draw on our years of experience designing and testing components to international bicycle and ebike standards.
