Jitensha’s single speed riding experience will change the way you commute and ride a bicycle. They are awesome to ride, they go fast, they require no maintenance. They are all about you, your legs, the city and your bike.
WHY SINGLE SPEED?
We’ve been cycling for years and started riding a single speed in Tokyo (…a hilly city) in 2014. We fell in love with the experience and decided to create Jitensha to share the love. A single speed is a classic bicycle with only one speed, 2 breaks and a freewheel in the back.
VERSATILE, COMFORTABLE AND SMOOTH
Lightweight (<10kg for all sizes), exclusively designed and durable frame in Double butted Cr-Mo 4130 Frame + slim 25C tires + ideal 48T x 18 transmission ratio = amazing single speed riding experience.
LOW MAINTENANCE AND RELIABLE
One speed + simple and efficient technology + premium quality parts = no maintenance, no skipping gears, no weird noises. 100% control, 100% pleasure!
CURATED FOR QUALITY
We’ve taken a year to design, select, test, benchmark and fine tune all our parts.
Our selection has focused on design, performance and quality.

The single speed brings a lot of fluidity and reactivity, it’s simpler and lighter. The great surprise is to see that when going uphill, its not penalizing at all, rather the opposite.Frederic | Paris
