Pilen Cykel

Pilen is the pragmatic romantic Swedish bicycle dedicated to people who follow their own path in life. It is made by a real family business in the charming village of Gamleby on Sweden's beautiful Baltic Coast.

Few models – thousand variants

Pilen bikes are available in a few basic models. The basic models can be customized into a variety of variants, called Special, where you choose how your Special model will look and be equipped. Choose color scheme and components according to your own taste. We build for you and the bike is delivered to the retailer in a timely manner – often within a few weeks.

Pilen EL1

A driving experience most generous

The electric Pilen EL1 is helpful, easy to handle and has a very personal style where design and function blends to perfection. The lightweight rigid alloy frame 6061-T6 together with Pilen's strong wheels and the electric motor from Shimano pleasantly harmonises and gives the Pilen EL1 traits that can be described as steady, pleasant and straightforward - actually even without the engine assisting. The battery is located centrally in the frame for balance and safety. You ride long distances in a relaxed style on our very personal stylish electric assisted bike. Rec. price from 26995 SEK.

What makes a Pilen stand out compared to other utility bikes on the market?

TIG-svetsad i krom-molybdenstål kvalitet 4130.

A strong and resilient frame

TIG-welded frame in chromium-molybdenum steel grade 4130 or alloy 6061 T6. More expensive and performing metal grades. Brazed details. The frame is both stronger and more flexible with heightened driving experience. Go for a ride and feel the difference. The Pilen is both strong and resilient.

Quality bottom bracket

The heart of every Pilen bike is a maintenance-free bottom bracket from Tange model with forged steel solid spindle, quality shielded bearings and light alloy body cups. Great spinning, more efficient power transmission, broader smile and better driving experience.
