Option PLUS: max. speed up to 45kph

Since we have launched smide the bikes ride with a pedal support of up to a maximum speed of 35kmph. The speed reduction was initially agreed with the city of Zurich for safety reasons. Since we had very few accidents so far, we now can, with some restrictions, unlock the bikes for speeds up to 45kph. We offer the higher speeds to our subscription customers (Abo Easy or Premium) who have already made at least 20 rides at a surcharge.

Contact our customer support to unlock the Option Plus. You can find more details on our subscription plans here.

Day tickets / Weekend pass

Day tickets (24h)

CHF 40

A day ticket gives you a 24-hour usage with one of our smide e-bikes, (e.g. from Monday 13:45 to Tuesday 13:44). To prevent the hassle of closing the booking or changing your e-bike, we allow you to keep the e-bike in the 24-hour period. However, please be sure to lock your e-bike (press «lock» or «sperren» in the app) when it is not in use to prevent another person from using your bike.

Weekend pass (Sat-Sun)

CHF 60

The weekend pass is valid from Saturday morning to midnight Sunday. During this period, you can keep the same e-bike or change it as often as you want. We recommend you rent a charger for longer tours. – Click here to order weekend passes via our Customer Support.

Free minutes

Bonus Zones

We have designated Bonus Zones all over the city. You can locate them in the app as orange circles. If you finish your ride in one of these zones, you will receive from 5,10, or 15 minutes for free! Check your app for these bonus zone locations, as some may have changed. If you are unable to locate it on your app, please contact our Customer Support, so that we can unlock this feature for you.

Charging Stations

We have installed charging stations for the smide e-bikes at selected locations. Charging stations are marked as orange flash pins on the map in the app. When you connect a smide e-bike to the charging station, you will receive from 5,10, or 15 minutes for free! It is important to follow the directions located on the charging box precisely to avoid missing out on your bonus minutes. Help us ensure that the smide e-bikes always have enough power and drop your e-bikes off at a charging station!
