The new Harley Davidson Serial 1 SWITCH/MTN hard tail

Words by Stuart on 21/06/2022 13:55:00

Harley-Davidson-owned electric bicycle company Serial 1 has just introduced its new SWITCH/MTN e-bike. The announcement comes just after unveiling the new BASH/MTN e-bike.

Serial 1's BASH/MTN has a similar frame design to the other e-bikes in the range.

Although the industry has largely praised the BASH/MTN bike's hydroformed aluminum tubes and internally routed wires and cables, the newly unveiled BASH/MTN left many scratching their heads and wondering why the frame was coupled with a rigid fork.

As it turns out, this was all part of Serial 1's cunning plan as they already had a front suspension bike (known as a hardtail) in the works, which the company rolled out this month.

According to Serial 1 the e-bike is, "Extremely off-road capable, SWITCH/MTN has the performance to satisfy an expert rider, but careful attention to fit and fine details ensure that our latest eMTB is just as accessible and accommodating for riders who are just beginning their off-road adventure too."

Aaron Frank, Serial 1's brand director, explained why the company is expanding into off-road:

"The vast majority of our world is unpaved. Fire roads, Jeep trails, singletrack paths, terrain parks, ski hills, state forests—there are so many great destinations to explore on two wheels and SWITCH/MTN, with its powerful motor, large-capacity battery, fully adjustable front suspension, and wide-ratio 1×12 drivetrain, has the all the performance and capability to take you anywhere you want to go."

The SWITCH/MTN shares much of the same "DNA" with other models in the Serial 1 lineup. In part developed by Harley-Davidson's LiveWire motorcycle engineers, the SWITCH/MTN is built upon the same 90 Nm Brose S Mag motor and in-frame 529 Wh removable battery as the LiveWire motorcycle.

The bike is equipped with Suntour's flagship ZERON35BOOST AIR suspension fork, high-volume Michelin EWild knobby tires, and a TranzX dropper seat post, allowing riders dynamically adjust their seat height at different points on the trail.

The mountain bike drivetrain incorporates SRAM's SX Eagle lineup components, including a 1×12 gear setup combined with a single-click trigger shifter.

Designed explicitly for e-bikes, the TRP Slate T4 hydraulic disc brakes feature four pistons providing outstanding braking power, which bites down on large 203 mm rotors that are a full 2.3 mm thick. Virtually eliminating the chances of brake fade when bombing long downhill segments.

Serial 1's in-house designed headlight and high-visibility RAT (Rearward Awareness Technology) tail and brake lights are built directly into the frame near the rear dropouts.

The SWITCH/MTN is also app-controlled, taking advantage of Google Cloud's recently announced partnership to make the bike more connected than ever. You can even charge your phone with a 10W USB-C port situated neatly on the handlebars.

The new eBike is available in four sizes of S/M/L/XL, with the L size weighing in at 24kg. (54lb).

This one retails at $4,499 and is available in Wasatch Green/Gloss Orange and Uinta Gray/Gloss White colorways.

The SWITCH/MTN is not yet on the European site, but we can expect the bike to be similarly priced on this side of the pond.
