Cycle 2 Work Schemes
Power up your commute
We work with a number of cycle scheme providers to help make the purchase of your new eBike and accessories more affordable. Cycle schemes allow you to make a tax-free purchase, saving up to 47%, by paying for the eBike and accessories out of your pre-tax salary. Better still, being a salary sacrifice scheme, the payments are taken out of your salary over an extended period (usually 12 months) meaning you get to spread the costs also!
Cycle to Work schemes can be processed by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

A standout feature on the Pinion Classic is the Carbon Belt Drive. If you are commuting on the Desiknio you will benefit from this clean and quiet system – no need for oiling the chain!
The Pinion gearing system is incredibly durable with an expected lifespan of around forty thousand miles!
Powered by an EBM M1 hub motor, the Desiknio will boost you away at the traffic lights in a breeze. When riding you have the choice between 4 levels of assistance, ranging from low assistance to a punchy boost for those days when you don't want to sweat, or want to arrive quickly.
This motor coupled with the easy gearing system provided by the Pinion will allow you to chose the perfect cadence for the road conditions for wild hills, or smooth flat roads.
The 250Wh battery, built into the down tube is one of the sleekest methods of battery concealment in the industry.
It will take a second look off everyone you ride past for them to realise it is an eBike!
This is topped with an aluminium fork, making the Pinion Classic a lightweight, eye-catching eBike, with the ability to tackle a wide range of gradients, urban situations and terrains.
Supernova V521s Front Light provides the best lighting possible on an eBike. Minimal and runs off the battery.
