Passion, Performance, and Delivered to your Doorstep
Headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, Surface 604 is passionate about electric bikes. They are on a mission to change people’s perceptions about what’s possible on an e-bike and to get more people riding more often.
Surface 604 e-bikes are designed in Canada by riders for riders. Their team has well over a century of road and mountain biking experience and has seen trends and gimmicks come and go. So when it comes time to spec our bikes, they go straight for a powerful motor and some of the biggest, most respected names in the industry – SRAM, FSA, Tektro, Kenda, Bafang and SR Suntour – and assemble a component sheet combining uncompromising performance with value.

Comfortable Cruiser with Adjustable Stem
The Rook e-assist bicycles have been designed with comfort in mind. They have combined the power of a 500w+ motor with a light, versatile frame to create a bike that is well-equipped for riders looking for some extra momentum to get them around quickly and easily.
The bike features an adjustable stem that can be fine-tuned on the fly for individual riding styles without the need for tools.
Built-in Rear Rack
The heavy-duty built-in rear rack easily holds all types of pannier bags with a max load of 100lbs (45kg)
Fenders and Chain Guard
The Rook is built for the year-round commuter, and comes direct from the factory with front and rear fenders and a chain guard, keeping water, mud and grease off clothes and ensuring riders arrive fresh and mess-free.
All roads are not created equal, and the Rook includes an SR Suntour XCT Suspension fork, absorbing even the bumpiest conditions for a smooth, easy ride.
Torque Sensor and Throttle on Demand
With a torque sensor and throttle on demand, the Rook is great for those travelling longer distances, on a variety of grades, and needing a little extra stamina to make it to work while still be able to enjoy the ride.
Discrete Battery Placement with Power Bank
Unlike other electric assist bikes with bulky batteries taking up space on rear racks, the battery for the Rook placed discreetly in the down tube, also assisting with better weight distribution. As an added bonus, the battery also features a USB plug for charging mobile devices on the go.
LED Front and Rear Lights
The powerful front and rear LED lights that feed off the main battery mean never having to worry about charging or replacing batteries at the end of a long day.
