Excellent4.6 Based on 870 reviews from review us onlashonda burgesslashonda burgess ★★★★★ ride1up's Portola oooowweeebaby I'm in ❤️ 😍 💖 luv, at first i was upset i couldn't put it together (handlebars) the customer services was amazing, very helpful, i just came from a night ride this bike worth every penny, thanks!!!Mark JohnsonMark Johnson ★★★★★ Great bike at great price! Customer service very helpful with setup and enjoy the electric boost as I am a senior citizen.J SJ S ★★★★★ I purchased a Ride1UP bike for a gift. We had a few issues with the shipping which wasn't their fault but they worked with us to try to correct them. So far we are very happy with the bike even if the shipping experience wasn't perfect.kevin kumpkevin kump ★★★★★ Good experience with the bike and customer service. There were a few minor issues that were beyond my ability, I took it to a bike shop and was refunded the difference quickly. The shop told me the type of adjustments are normal and pretty much all of them need it. So don't be suprised if you have to take it someone to get it tuned, see if there is a bike shop that works on ebikes in your area.The bike itself is excellent, see Youtube videos if you want to learn about them, the reviews I watched for the Portola were pretty accurate.dan orjueladan orjuela ★★★★★ After months of researching Ebikes from several companies, I decided to get the Gravel Roadster V2 from Ride1Up.I got it a few days after I placed the order, came very well packaged and only took me 30 minutes to put the few parts together and was ready to ride in no time.The stardust color is beautiful and the components are top notch, you get a lot of bike for the money. I've already put over 500 miles without any issues.It's been a blast to ride this bike in beautiful Colorado, my only regret is not getting it sooner!By the way, Gregory in Wisconsin was really great helping me with answering all my questions. I'm looking forward to buying a second one in the near future.k bk b ★★★★☆ I'm very happy with my Turris, although it arrived with minor cosmetic damage, a bent front brake rotor and a back brake that needs bleeding. Ride1up sent a new rotor and brake bleed kit, and gave me a front rack and basket to compensate for the cosmetic damage (they didn't have touch up paint or any suggestions for fixing it). Overall it's a good ebike with good customer service when/if needed.mo deltoromo deltoro ★★★★★ Purchased ride1up's Cafe Cruiser last year and have been extremely happy with it's styling and ride performance. Wanted to also own a fold-up e-bikes. Had been watching lectric's XP 3.0 for months. But the moment I saw ride1up's Portola intro I rushed to buy it for 100 bucks less than the XP 3.0 I got a 750 watt sustained motor compared to a just 500 watt. Got way more aesthetically pleasing styling with a beautiful dark blue color choice. Love the Portola ride experience as am able to keep it folded up in trunk of my sedan for spontaneous and always ready to go adventures. The narrow handle bars make for a more nimble ride as it is easier to dodge between other riders, pedestrians and narrow entry points. ride1up is not only more affordable- the quality excellent 👍Matt BiancoMatt Bianco ★★★★★ i’m having an absolute blast with my Turris, I literally want to ride it everywhere. the range and power are perfect for my needs. very glad i purchased this model.Mary BrownMary Brown ★★★★★ We became interested in e-bikes after seeing several fellow campers riding them in the campgrounds. I researched many brands and styles, including Ride1Up's offerings. Then I received their email introducing their new PORTOLA model. It was just the bike we had decided to look for: foldable, light(er) weight, step-through frame, available in colors and well-equipped with lights, fenders, hydraulic brakes, etc. We ordered two of the 13 Ah models; they were delivered within a few days. The hardest part of the assembly was getting them out of the shipping crates. My bike had a flat due to a punctured tube, but Ride1Up took care of that in record time. So far, we've taken them on one camping trip and made several rides around our neighborhood, and we've really enjoyed them (and received lots of compliments and interest!). The only change we've made was to the seats; we put an aftermarket seat on one and a seat pad on the other - now somewhat improved, still not perfect. All in all, the Portola is a great bike, and we look forward to years of riding ours!js_loader

home-top-products-svg Electric Bike FAQ's

How Long Do EBike Batteries Last?

EBikes come with a range of battery sizes, accessories, and warranty periods, and the life span of the battery will vary with how often you ride, your charging habits, and the maintenance you invest in your new bike.

Typically, ebike batteries will last up to about five years if you store your bike in dry conditions, keep the charging ports clean, and avoid discharging the bike completely. Consistently allowing your bike battery to fully discharge will increase the risk of cell degradation and needing to replace the battery for your eBike much sooner!

How Far Can an Electric Bike Go?

The distance an electric bike covers depend on several factors. The main element is the size of the bike battery. After battery capacity, external factors impact the range of an electric bike. Some of these factors include rider weight, terrain, temperature, use of accessories, type, and pressure of tires, use of gearing, inclines, and the level of motor assistance/throttle used during your bike ride,

The range of our top-quality electric bicycles will vary from model to model. Electric bicycles with larger batteries such as the Cafe Cruiser can provide up to fifty miles of range, giving you plenty of capacity for a two-way commute or a weekend bike ride!

Do You Need a License for an Electric Bike?

An electric bike doesn’t usually need a license to ride, and no specific federal laws cover licensing requirements for eBikes. However, state regulations vary, so the best advice is to check out your local DMV site and double-check the licensing requirements in your region before you shop for an electric bike.

Most eBikes do not require insurance, tax, licensing, or registration, but more powerful eBikes might have varying requirements. It’s also worth considering where you plan to ride eBikes because local regulations for a bike driven on the streets can differ.

How Fast Can an EBike Go?

The speed of an eBike depends a lot on the size of the motor on the eBike you decide to purchase. The components built into an eBike monitor speed and stop providing electric assistance when you reach a speed threshold, helping you ride your eBike safely without compromising efficiency. Most ebikes go up to 20 mph and 28 mph on motor assistance.

The majority of Ride1Up’s Class 3 electric bikes are rated to go 28 mph on pedal assist.

Are EBikes Good for Losing Weight?

Yes! The motor on an ebike may make bicycling easier but at the end of the day, you are still staying active and moving your body during your bike ride. Studies show that riding eBikes can support a healthier lifestyle, improving cardio conditioning and brain function. While you have a handy motor to help you out of sticky spots (or steep hills), pedaling an electric bicycle burns around 444 calories an hour–that’s only 20% lower than a conventional bike!

Do Electric Bikes Have Gears?

Yes, eBikes in today’s market offer a variety of multi and single-geared drivetrains. Most common eBike drivetrains come with seven, eight, or nine gears but can go higher on more expensive models.

The accessories and gears on our eBikes vary from model to model to provide riders with options to find the most suitable and comfortable eBikes for their needs. Be sure to compare electric bike models to find the best option for your needs.

Can You Ride Electric Bikes in the Rain?

All our electric bikes are engineered with exceptional quality components, offer unbeatable accessories, and warranty options, and are IP-65-rated water-resistant. This rating means the electric bike is protected from low-pressure water from any direction.

While we do not recommend leaving the e-bikes out in the rain or riding in hazardous conditions due to personal safety, our eBikes can be ridden in the rain and handle water exposure. Just as with any electrical device, keeping the bike dry and protected from the elements will increase the lifespan of the bike.

What Is the Best Electric Bike Out Right Now?

Choosing a high-quality bike can make your daily travel quicker, cheaper, and healthier–but picking the right electric bike is very much a personal choice, depending on a whole host of factors.

For example, you’ll need to consider your budget, the frame style, size, and color you want, and whether you’re after an urban bike, a casual electric bike for occasional trips, or a more powerful bike to tackle tough hills.

Our Core-5 model is an exceptional value e-bike for first-time riders, and the 700 Series is a top-of-the-range model loaded with features for advanced performance. However, we’d recommend considering what you want to prioritize rather than suggesting that one specific model is the best option for every electric bike rider.

Which Cheap Electric Bike Is Best?

All Ride1Up e-bikes offer seriously competitive value, and we’d be reluctant to suggest that the cheapest electric bikes have the level of functionality, comfort, and aesthetic appeal we believe are important to your bike riding experience. Very cheap e-bikes have reduced power, performance, and longevity and don’t make the cut when it comes to balancing value against quality.

Our advice is to invest in an electric bike designed to withstand the rigors of the road, with each model developed with precision detail to provide the highest possible performance without costing a fortune. When you shop for bikes, you will want to consider price, accessories, warranty policies, customer support, and service options. Test riding various bikes can also be a valuable step to compare different bike options and find the one that best fits your needs.

Is There a Speed Limit on an Electric Bike?

Ride1Up specializes in Class 3 electric bikes–these bikes can reach speeds of up to around twenty-eight MPH and comply with the U.S. federal classification system. Top speeds vary with bike rider weights, terrain, and whether you’re using throttle only or pedal assist. You can find more information about maximum assisted speeds in our product specs and accessories, including advice about adjusting the settings in your bike display in our support platform.

It remains essential to observe local speed limits because not every state has adopted the same classification system. There may be different speed limits for cycle lanes and travel routes that permit electric bikes.

What Are the Three Types of E-Bikes?

Electric bikes are classified as Class 1, 2, or 3 based on the operation of the motor. As a quick summary of the bike classifications:

Class 1 e-bikes have an upper-speed limit of twenty MPH, with a pedal assist-only electric motor.
Class 2 models incorporate throttles, where the motor stops assisting the rider when the bike reaches twenty MPH.
Class 3 electric bikes have a motor, pedal assist, and a maximum speed of approximately twenty-eight MPH.

However, Ride1Up has incorporated a 20 PMH throttle into most of their class 3 bikes too.

How Far Can You Ride an E-Bike Without Pedaling?

Like all things e-bikes, the range is impacted by variables such as whether you’re riding uphill or downhill, the bike motor and battery size, tire spec and condition, and even the strength of the wind!

It’s also worth noting that a bike is designed for pedaling rather than operating like a moped or electric motorbike, which runs solely on the motor. You wouldn’t expect to sit stationary on the bike without pedaling at all, but you can cruise downhill without much pedal power.

You’ll find ranges for each model on our electric bike product page, from twenty to thirty miles on the Roadster V2 to thirty to fifty miles on the LMT’D, Prodigy, 700 Series, and Cafe Cruiser.
