GLIDE - A Great Story in the Making!
Changing electric cycling one rider at a time!
At Glide we have grown from a small bootstrap company selling to family and friends in early 2010 to a product line sold around the world! During our journey, we have strived to cater to each customer by determining what model, features and components would best fit them and their riding plan! We are excited to be able to continue that strategy into the future. And by the way, we are proud to be able to say that we design and manufacturer our products right here in California and better yet -- MADE in USA!!
We have great gratitude and appreciation for our customers who have believed in our product and company. At the end of the day, we know that its the people behind the product who make it great! And our team of engineers and designers that are just as committed to customer safety, performance and happiness as our sales guys.
With an ongoing commitment to excellence and innovation, we are very excited about Glide's future. Our design team is hard at work on a new off-road dual suspension series. Stay tuned!! We truly look forward to the adventurous path that our company vision calls for and to the many years of incredible interactions with our customers and Glide enthusiasts! We encourage you to contact us with any questions, concerns or share your Glide stories with us. We'd love to hear them...
