IT’S BUILT TOUGH
Stronger, Stiffer Frame
The GSD has always been super strong, but we’ve made it even beefier for a better ride. The added stiffness prevents side-to-side motion, even when heavily loaded.
Bosch Cargo Line Motor
A powerful motor that’s cut out for heavy loads and hilly roads. Natural-feeling e-assist with up to 85 Nm of torque and 400% support.
The best-in-class Atlas Lockstand features unique Auto Lock and Remote Unlock features for safe and simple loading and unloading.
The GSD’s wheels may be small, but they’re strong enough to carry big. Custom-designed to withstand the 200 kg max gross vehicle weight of the GSD.
Easy to Transport
We think the GSD will help you leave your car behind more often than not. Still, there are times when using a car and a GSD together is the best solution. The GSD packs down to one third of its volume in seconds. Stick a GSD (or two!) in the back of a minivan or small SUV, no heavy-duty rack required.
IT’S READY TO HAUL
The GSD has a max gross vehicle weight of 200 kg, and the rear rack can carry up to 100 kg. Whether it’s an adult passenger, two weeks’ worth of groceries, or stuff for a big DIY project—the GSD carries virtually anything.
Dedicated Trailer Mount
Easy to use, very secure, and optimized to prevent trailer tilt. Compatible with Thule, Burley, and Weber trailers, no adapters needed.
Integrated Lower Decks
The rugged Integrated Lower Decks offer built-in support for cargo and passengers’ feet. Got a truly oversized load? Add the Sidekick Wide Decks for extra room and even more load capacity.
Ecosystem of Accessories
Make the most of the frame-integrated rear rack’s enormous strength and the robust Combo Mount for front cargo accessories. Whether you need to carry passengers or cargo, there’s something for every situation.
Easy-Step Frame Design
Updated frame geometry makes the GSD comfier for riders of all sizes. A slacker seat tube angle and higher handlebars create a better-fitting cockpit and a more upright riding position. Plus, it’s now easier for riders’ feet to reach the ground at stops.
Custom Suspension Fork
We built a special suspension fork to add comfort and control while safely handling the GSD’s massive 200 kg MGVW.
Cane Creek Thudbuster suspension seatpost for an extra-cushy ride. Tool-free elastomer adjustment makes it easy for riders of different sizes to share the bike. Equipped on GSDs with the LX package.
The unique Andros Stem lets you change the height and angle of the handlebars in seconds and without tools, creating a comfy riding position whether you’re tall or small.
IT’S SET UP FOR SAFETY
RearStop Brake Light
Let drivers know to give you space when you’re stopping or slowing down. Always on, day or night, with enhanced side visibility.
Riding home after dark or in bad weather? No worries. The 700-lumen front light provides extra visibility with a brighter light and a wider beam. A one-touch high/low beam puts even more light at your fingertips. Equipped on GSDs with the LX package.
The chainguard helps you stay tidy (no pant-rolling required) and prevents long skirts and loose pants from getting caught in the chain or belt.
Integrated Wheel Guard
A full-coverage rear wheel guard protects the rider and passengers from splashes of muddy water and prevents clothes and shoelaces from being caught in the wheel.
A regular bike takes up a lot of floor space and can be hard to store in a small living space (never mind getting it in and out of the elevator). We solved this problem by designing the GSD to park vertically, so it takes up about as much space as a potted plant—perfect for city apartments and elevators.
IT’S AS GOOD AS IT GETS
A super-premium internally geared hub with lighting-fast electronic shifting. Offers a massive 526% gear range and shift-sensing technology for smooth transitions. Automatically downshifts as you come to a standstill—perfect for stop-and-go traffic. Equipped on the GSD R14.
Gates CDX Belt Drive
Smooth, silent, clean, durable, and maintenance-free—so you can spend more time riding and less time cleaning and lubing your bike chain. Equipped on the GSD S00 and R14.
Magura MT-5 4-Piston Disc Brakes
A bike that can carry this much calls for some serious stopping ability, and these brakes deliver. They can quickly bring a fully loaded GSD to a strong, confident stop.
All Day Battery
Equipped with Bosch dual-battery technology, the GSD is wired from the get-go to accommodate two batteries—meaning you can get a second battery when you’re really sure you need it, without having to worry about rewiring your bike. Just plug it in and you’re good to go.
