Momentum Bicycles



Long before bicycles were sporty race machines, they were transportation plain and simple. That has never really changed and Momentum Bicycles - a line of urban and commuter bikes from Giant - are here to get you from Point A to Point B in style and comfort.

Momentum is not just the name of the bikes, it’s also the philosophy behind the brand. Launched in 2015 by Giant, Momentum bikes can be found on parkways during family outings as well as on city streets as corporate workers ditch their cars and embrace a more healthy - physically and environmentally - mode of motion.

From simple city cruisers like the UX and Vida to electric pedal-assist commuter-friendly bikes like the Vida E+, TranscendE+ and Lafree E+, Momentum Bicycles makes vehicles designed to invigorate as well as transport their riders.
