Since their overwhelmingly successful Kickstarter launch campaign in 2014, Priority Bicycles has been taking on the challenge of building simple, tough-as-nails bikes that rise not just to the need of a good commuter, but also a damn good daily rider. From their initial model, the Classic, as it would come to be known, to now offering six distinct models, all with their trademark design feature, a rust-less, grease-less nearly maintenance-free belt drive system.
In honor of National Bike Month, we’ve teamed up with Priority Bicycles to bring three of their most revered models to the Gear Patrol Store. From today through May 27th, you can purchase a Priority Classic Plus, Continuum or Coast in the Gear Patrol and get free shipping anywhere in the United States. Buy a bike and we’ll throw in a $50 gift card to the Gear Patrol Store with every purchase. Need a helmet? We’ve got you covered there too; for a limited time, get Priority Bicycles 174Hudson Stack helmet for just $65. So, don’t wait. Get out there and ride.
The Classic Plus
The Priority Bicycles Classic Plus is the premier low maintenance, hassle-free, belt-drive bicycle. It has the award-winning comfortable ride, rust-free & ultralight frame, and three-speed versatility of Priority Bicycles Classic model with additional standard components for more frequent riders and commuters including the grease and rust-free Gates Carbon Drive belt, a front brake for smooth stopping power, and enhanced wheels and pedals for excellent durability. Three frame size options ensure you get the size that’s right for you. Weighing only 25 pounds, the Classic Plus is light and easy to ride. The belt drive keeps your commute clean without worry of grease and grime. An upright and comfortable riding style makes weekend cruises a breeze.
The Continuum Onyx
With the Continuum Onyx Edition, Priority Bicycles has upped simplicity and doubled down on safety; If your ride takes you into the night, front and rear dynamo powered lights will illuminate your ride without the need for batteries or recharging. 360-degree reflective logos and tire beading will increase visibility for urban riders or anyone out on a dark road. Puncture resistant WTB tires with a reflective sidewall help keep you safe, comfortable and seen at night. Other bicycles with similar features and components sell for above $1600. Priority’s customer-direct model enables this all-weather, all-hour commuter for a fraction of the price.
Designed, assembled, and tested in coastal climates around the globe, no other beach cruiser has this level of features designed to take on the salt, sand, and water at the beach. Built on a foundation of the Gates Carbon Drive Belt with an ultralight rustproof frame and fork, combined with sealed bearings you’ve got the smoothest ride at the beach. Each bike comes with a traditional beach cruiser foot (coaster) rear brake, a front hand brake, and a double kickstand.
The 174Hudson Stack Helmet
A good helmet is a crucial piece of commuter kit, whether you’re cruising on a Citi bike or pedaling your personal two-wheeled pegasus. But when you get where you’re going, lugging it around can be a pain. That’s why the product wizards at Priority Bicycles invented the 174Hudson Stack, a foldable helmet that protects you while you ride and saves on space when you’re at your destination.
Gates Carbon Drive Belt System
Every Priority Bike comes with a Gates Carbon Drive Belt system, a rust-less, grease-less, practically maintenance-free solution to the age-old chain drive design. Not only will you do away with dirty hands and marked-up pant legs, but you’ll also enjoy a longer life: Gates Carbon Belts last longer than a traditional chain, and with no stretch, your rides will stay smooth and quieter for longer. When it does get dirty, simply spray with a hose or wipe down with a wet cloth to remove debris.
