Airisto Commuter 8-Speed

Item: AIR48-8D-CHA2
Sky Blue
Pearl Rosa

Finland shares a lot in common with the North American northeast: icy cold winters, lots of snow cover, and salt to keep streets clear. But, at the same time, Finland and Canada are full of dense cities with a population that loves to live outdoors. That produces a different sensibility that drives Pelago design: lightweight bikes for longer rides (or hills), strong finishes for weather protection, and comfortable upright frames that take comfort and safety seriously. 

The Airisto Commuter is a glowing example of that sensibility with its efficient riding position, and totally decked out specs. Perfect for zooming through city streets, the 8-speed internal gear hub from Shimano gives you the perfect range to tackle anything the city throws your way. The Airisto’s powerful hydraulic disc brakes hold up in all weather conditions to deliver year-round reliable braking. A slightly low-rise stem paired with city-friendly swept back handlebars mean you can see everything coming your way, without having to compromise an efficient riding position. Best of all, the Aristo comes equipped with a high-end dynamo light set. Powered by electricity produced from the lightweight front hub, the dynamo light is super-bright for those long nordic nights, and best of all: bolted to the bike so firmly that it makes thieves think twice.

What's more? The Airisto Commuter has classically stylish fenders to keep you dry in shoulder-season rainstorms. Sturdy double-walled rims support Schwalbe Spicer tires with internal puncture-proof protection, perfect for riding over glass and urban debris. The frame has welded braze-ons to allow for bottle cage mounting - a feature most city bikes overlook & that makes this bike great for longer rides.

In addition to its enormous practicality, the Airisto is stylish in a vintage classic way. A full-grain Brooks B17 leather saddle adds a touch of sophistication, tons of comfort once broken in, and perfectly accents the heritage frame colour. Add a rear rack and basket of your choice to make the Airisto a constant companion on your adventures in the city and out on the rail trails.
