Best value starter ebike
The Core-5 has been discontinued.
The Core-5 has been a customer favorite due to its impressive performance and brand-name components, all at an entry-level price point, making it one of the most value-packed ebikes in the industry.
Current owners of the Core-5 will continue to receive the same quality of service and support expected from Ride1Up.
If you were planning to purchase the Core-5, we recommend looking into the Turris ebike. It boasts similar performance with upgraded specs such as front suspension hydraulic brakes, fenders and more!

We are a direct-to-consumer company both in pricing and strategy. You will generally pay a premium for the ability to test ride through a dealer. However, our bikes have been thoroughly tested by top reviewers such as Electric Bike Review, Electric Bike Report, Cycling Weekly, Clean Technica, Electrek and many others who have published their reviews on YouTube. Additionally, we are now supporting an independent network of owners offering their bikes for demos. Learn more here Locations
