Which eBike is right for you?

Which eBike is right for you? The 500 Series vs 700 Series

Both the 500 and 700 series bikes are actually built with a very similar level of components. While on paper, the 700 series may seem like the better buy, the 500 series is not to be overlooked.

500 Series Pros

Comfort – The 500 series has fantastic frame geometry for those that fit the bill. It allows for upright stress-free touring unlike any other.

Agility – Light weight, compact bars, and grippy all-surface tires allow for quick sharp turns and easy maneuvering.

Value – Unbeatable; the 500 Series is the best performance to dollar value you can get.

Durability – While some of the components are simpler, they are also easy to maintain. Take care of it, and it will last decades.

500 Series Cons

Battery (Ah) Range – The stock battery is 1 ah less than the 700 series, but there is the option to reverse that with the 17.5ah battery (Only available as a separate purchase).

Look – While this is still a beautiful bike, when compared to the 700, we had to consider this a con.

700 Series Pros

Aesthetics – Yeah, pretty easy to see what were talking about here. You’ll get some head-turning stares.

Speed –  27mph top cruising speed vs the 500 Series 25mph cruising speed. On long straight roads, that may be very important.

Features – Hydraulic brakes, metal fenders, color screen, taillight. The 700 series offers some extras which aren’t always needed, but nice.

700 Series Cons

Weight – At 63lbs, the 700 series feels a little more bulky than the 500. Turns are going to feel a little bit more deliberate.

Battery Options – The 700 series does not have a battery size upgrade option. The fully integrated electronics do not allow for it.
