“We are proud to give you the golden ticket to new adventures! Adding pep to your step, the Zzyzx will open up a new world of riding to you” – Fenix Bykes

Pronounced as “Zee – Zick”, this eBike delivers the perfect balance of meticulous design, technology, and simplicity. Swing a leg over the Zzyzx and you will immediately find new locations, new adventures, and miles you’ve never considered before!

Built around Shimano’s STePS E6000 system and their Di2 11-speed rear derailleur drivetrain, the Zzyzx brings advanced technology to the road. Unlike its eBike opponents, Zzyzx is playful and responsive due to its gravel grinder geometry, handbuilt steel frame, and weighing less than 36lbs. All of this for a starting price of $4995.

Frame Construction:
Proudly made in the USA by the famous frame builder Ted Wojcik. The frame is meticulously welded together with pride and dedication using tubes sourced from Reynolds and Columbus.

Flexible Design:
As promised, the Zzyzx will bring you new adventures. Whether it’s making the work day more fun and lively by commuting in on a bike or giving you the freedom to cover more miles on adventure rides, the Zzyzx is able to cater to your needs. This eBike is designed to accept everything for your commuting or long distance needs including the ability to run 700x35c tires, front and rear fenders, two water bottles and a Behold tool pouch or a fully integrated frame bag with internal mounting. Zzyzx frees you from having to carry supplies on your back.

Commuter Kit Options:
Time to ditch the car and reap the physical and mental benefits of commuting to work. The Zzyzx offers two commuter kit options that let you dominate any weather and lighting condition you may encounter! The best part is that these kits were not added on after-the-fact. These kits hold true to all of Fenix Bykes designs by keeping the bike looking sleek and clean.

Both kits include a 250deg visible Supernova E3 tail light ensuring your safety from any angle as well as staying dry with fenders from ENVE (front) and SKS (rear).

  • The Busch and Muller kit is our more affordable kit. Featuring the Busch and Muller LUMOTEC IQ Cyo Premium front light, this headlight beam will stretch from your work all the way home!
  • The Schmidt kit is our higher end kit for the tenacious commuter who works early mornings and late nights requiring the best lights on the market. Featuring the Schmidt Edelux II front light, it will show you the pavement to and from work with ease and let others on the road know you’re there.

Controls:
Fenix Bykes is dedicated to designing bikes that look clean and simple but boast a unique combination of technology. The layout of the controls on the Zzyzx is a testament to this dedication. The custom mount designed for the Shimano E6010 display sits low and tucked snugly in front of the bar. This makes for a more ergonomic, one-of-a-kind look.

eBike Drivetrain:
In order to deliver a playful and responsive Gravel Grinder, Fenix Bykes’ spent countless hours designing a more compact STePS drive mount. This resulted in a chainstay length of 432mm and a chainline optimized for 142×12 rear spacing. To get the Zzyzx moving, the Dura-Ace and (3) Ultegra builds make for countless miles of minimal maintenance, lightning fast shifting, and solid reliability.

About Fenix Bykes:

Established in 2014, Fenix Bykes is the brainchild of Scott Turner, a dedicated rider, engineer, and bike designer who has been designing unique bikes for almost 2 decades. Born by innovation, Fenix Bykes developed a no-compromise travel frame design.

Starting with the “Macleod”, this bike boasts 29er hoops with geometry that allows for a conversion between a road and mountain bike. In addition to being able to convert between mountain and road, it has the ability to fold into a bag that is check-in friendly. The Macloed is the ultimate travel companion.

From there, the evolution began and the Santos was born. This no-nonsense mountain bike is designed around a 140mm travel fork that makes for a killer ride on the trails. Still featuring the folding design, the Santos is a mountain bikers dream to hit trails around the globe!
