Zen Electric Bikes is a North-American E-bike enterprise headquartered in Halifax, Nova Scotia with offices in Portand, OR and in the DC-metro area. Our goal is to build high-quality E-bikes to enable the growth of electrified transportation in North America. E-bikes are the future, as one of the most efficient and environmentally-friendly modes of transport. Whether it is recreational, adventure or commuting, E-bikes are the answer.

When developing our brand, we chose to name our company “Zen” to capture the whole experience of our E-bike journey, and reflect on our roots as humanity. We want our community to have a Zen-like experience; positive, harmonious with nature and uplifting. What many don’t yet understand is that E-bikes come with an incredible sense of freedom and endless possibilities to explore, while reducing carbon footprint and enhancing one’s mental and physical health. At Zen, we value quality and reliability and want riders to enjoy the efficient, active and fun journey that we offer.
