Thōmas SA is celebrating their new location in Santa Monica, California in style.
On Friday, the Swiss bicycle company released their all-new Swissrider eBike in both an Urban/Gravel and Road version. Thōmus makes the claim that their new “lightweight and versatile” electric bike weighs in at only 25 pounds, claiming the Swissrider to be the “World’s lightest ebike”.
Unfortunately for Thōmus, the Cannondale SuperSix EVO Neo already checks in at a claimed 24.9lb (11.3kg) and the Scott Addict eRide at just 23.1lb (10.5kg), so the claim of the “lightest electric bike available” is likely not be true, depending on the actual weights of these bikes. Not only that, but the Ribble Endurance SL e Hero also claims to be less, at 10.5kg. To be fair, the Swissrider is still impressively light at 11.5kg, and it’s also less expensive than the $10k SuperSix Neo.
Thōmus USA is a retailer and manufacturer of “world-class” road, mountain, and gravel bikes designed by Thōmus SA of Switzerland. The bikes are fully assembled by hand at the on-site workshop. The company was founded in 2021 and operates a flagship retail boutique in Santa Monica, California.
