We’ll have the best e-bikes in the market at The Cycle Show. From compact commuting folders to cargo-carrying utility machines, through to stylish statement rides, there’s something electric-powered for everyone at Alexandra Palace in April.
Here’s a selection of quality bikes from brands you will meet at the show – some well-established, others relatively new to the market, and some launching this Spring – but all committed to making your electric dream machines.
The Benno range of e-utility bikes – or ‘etility’ as Benno like to say – from cargo carriers to kiddy transporters, gains a new member of the family at The Cycle Show, with the launch of this 46er. Check it out in the flesh at Ally Pally.
“The 46er is the same length as a regular bike. And that’s where all similarities end. We ditched convention and added capability. Enough to make any cargo bike sweat. And gave it a sporty ride and front suspension. This unequaled combination of ride and capability starts with unequal wheels. 26″ in the front for extra comfort and control, and 24″ in the back for strength and a lower centre of gravity. All powered by the Bosch CX / Speed and a 500Wh intube battery.”
“We hold a large stock of components in the UK so we can build a bespoke eMTB to a specification and budget pre-agreed with the customer. A customer’s choice of components may vary but all bikes are carbon fibre with a 95Nm motor, offering what we believe is a class-beating torque to weight ratio.”
Another Cycle Show exclusive, the new SUB (Smart Utility Bike) from our friends in Vienna at Vello will launch at Alexandra Palace and we look forward to giving it a spin. A versatile workhorse for the entire family, the SUB switches seamlessly from passengers to cargo with a tool-free mounting system for their range of interchangable accessories. With folding handlebars and pedals, it’s also designed not to clutter up your hallway unduly. And with a choice of chromoly or titanium frames, the latter tips the scales at a very respectable 24kg – the world’s lightest in the category, Vello say.
The SUB is joined at Ally Pally by Vello’s excellent range of compact folding bikes – both pedal-powered and electric-assisted – that again come in titanium frame options, for long-lasting, lightweight comfort and joy on two wheels. Sehr gut!
Fancy pushing your folding e-bike that bit further than the daily commute? This version of the highly-acclaimed One from MiRiDER could be just the ticket for anyone seeking something for the weekend once the working week is done and dusted. Equally at home on bridleways, towpaths or tarmac, the limited edition Adventure GB3 features a 3-speed crank-mounted gearbox, grippy off-road tyres, low-maintenance and no mess kevlar belt drive, and powerful hydraulic disc brakes. Fully loaded fun guaranteed.
These funky fellas from Shoreditch take e-bike cruising to new levels with their 345, a head-turning statement ride complete with maple luggage deck made in conjunction with a British skateboard manufacturer – a classy touch. That lovely lengthy saddle is also custom made here in the UK. They even do an off-road version for seriously rad excursions. One for easy riders and cool customers.
“The 345 was designed to combine the look of a motorbike and the lifestyle it offers, but with the ease of use and accessibility of a bicycle. Leveraging the best of British craftsmanship and design, our bikes are designed and built in the UK.”
Tern’s range enjoy an excellent reputation that is growing by the minute in the UK, and it’s easy to see why. Dependable workhorses like this Quick Haul are an increasingly common sight on our city streets, both on the school run and at the farmers’ market. Superb carrying capacity, solid construction, Shimano components and a flexible sizing approach allowing the whole family to utilise the single machine – it’s a winner.
A hearty Cycle Show welcome to new kids on the block, Beameo, bringing “something for everyone” to the e-bike party, from compact folders through to this hardtail MTB. In the market for a road-going bike that rides as good as it looks? Check out their Classic for a suitably classy design that you’d have to study closely to realise it’s even battery powered, and at a very reasonable price too. Meet the team at stand W40.
