What’s the sitch on the Santa Cruz Skitch? This gravel ebike comes in nice and light at 30.13lbs on the GX AXS build. So here’s the lowdown. The Skitch is available in a 700c wheel size with a max tire width of 50mm. It comes built with Santa Cruz’s CC carbon fiber. It also has the option for either running the bike setup with a flat bar or a drop bar. Depending on your ride style and where you’re wanting to take the Skitch, the choice is yours. Flat bars will give you a more upright and casual fit. Drop bars will give you that aggressive and sporty feel.
The Skitch was made to be a lighter commuter & adventure style ebike but that doesn’t mean that the drive-system would lack in power or battery range. The Skitch has a Fazua Ride 60 drivesystem that will pedal assist up to 28mph with a 60Nm peak torque. The 430Wh battery should provide plenty of range with Santa Cruz claiming 60+ miles.
