The Indie VLT elevates your daily commute and weekend excursions beyond the ordinary with its seamless integration of a Shimano STEPS electric assist and e-optimized components into its sleek, modern urban styling.
With its fenders, rack and integrated lights, the Indie VLT is totally prepared, even when you aren't. Its smooth-riding 27.5" tyres, secure through-axle wheels and a removable Shimano in-tube battery ensure that, no matter where you ride or how you get there, you'll arrive in style and park with confidence.
LOW KEY, HIGH TECH ALLOY FRAME: The Indie's VLT's all-new alloy frame features purpose-built features and full Shimano STEPS integration in a lightweight, tough frame that will deal with anything the city dishes out and is a blast to ride – and we also made it available with a convenient step through design.
E-BIKE RATED COMPONENTS: The Indie VLT features e-bike approved hydraulic disc brakes for extra stopping power, an e-rated lockoutequipped suspension fork and is equipped with e-optimized wheels and a re-enforced e-spec chain to handle the additional torque and rigors of the electric assist.
REMOVABLE DOWNTUBE BATTERY: The fully-sealed 504Wh Shimano E8035 in-tube battery is stealthily mounted, and easily removed for convenient charging, and secure, confident parking.
SHIMANO STEPS – ALL THE POWER YOU NEED: The best-in-class Shimano STEPS drive system, including e6100 display and DU6100 motor, will extend every ride with up to 180km per charge, provide the perfect amount of assist, and is supported by a worldwide network of Shimano distributors and dealers.
FULLY-EQUIPPED: Integrated lights, fenders, and rear rack makes the Indie VLT ideal for around-town adventures and the dropper post allows for quick adjustment for stop lights and allows simple saddel height adjustment for multiple riders.
SERVICE-FRIENDLY DESIGN: The Indie VLT is designed with thoughtful internal cable routing that makes dealer service easy, and the full Shimano STEPS drive system benefits from Shimano’s international support network. You can sell with confidence knowing that your service department will continue to run as smoothly as ever.
