Shipping Information

*Increased shipping demand nationwide has caused delays in tracking updates from Fedex and delays in shipping hubs. Shipping estimates are slightly delayed beyond the normal timelines.
Delivery time is dependent on your distance from Nevada (our warehouse location). We typically deliver in 2-3 days within the west coast and, or 4-7 days for the east coast.

Bike will arrive 85% assembled (electronics are pre-assembled). An assembly video is located on our support page. Front fork, front tire, seat, pedals, and crank arm need to be installed. Installation can be completed in 1-2 hours. However, it is recommended to use a bike mechanic when possible to check the bike prior to riding. Damages resulting from improper assembly are not covered by the warranty.

FAQ'S

No. We are a direct-to-consumer company both in pricing and strategy. You will generally pay a premium for the ability to test ride. Due to our direct to consumer pricing strategy, we do not have nationwide dealer partnerships. There are some very helpful videos on YouTube reviewing the bike and detailing a closer look.

This article will explain all about what to expect when ordering a bike from us. Ordering With Us

Upgraded batteries are available, but ONLY as a separate purchase. The battery that is shipped with your bike cannot be changed. We have 14ah Reention Eel battery packs that fit this bike available in our Parts section.

We only ship within North America. The Continental United States is FREE. Hawaii and Alaska is $190. Shipping to Mexico and Canada is $100. We are not responsible for any additional tariffs charged by your local government which often times applied after importing. Unfortunately, we are not able to ship our bikes directly to Europe. You can use a shipping forwarder like ShopUsa.com to reach your country.

No. The variations you see on the site are the only options we have.

The bikes are not water-proof, they are water-resistant, rated IP-65. While we do not recommend leaving the bikes out in the rain or riding in the rain or other hazardous conditions due to personal safety, the bikes can handle water exposure.

We made gearing changes to our newest models and all models are now capable of 28mph pedal assist speeds.

The Core-5 is a great bike! Sturdy, quick and efficient; it's intriguing that there aren't more of these around. Looks slick and sophisticated too, like in the others' pictures (here's a pic of the display)

I love my bike! It’s very responsive. As soon as I need a push up the hill, there it is. Easy to shift gears, even multiple gears at a time. Comfortable to ride for hours. Easy to charge.

I love this Core 5 bike. I have cancer and when I ride a regular bike I run out of gas easily. This Core 5 is great for me. I can ride 20 miles with no problem. Going up hills was a big problem for me but this bike eliminated that issue. If I get a certain distance and feel tired, I just stop peddling and use the throttle to get home. Worth every penny in my opinion.

    Core 5 first impressions.. finished pimpin’ my ride today. Have yet to test drive, it’s snowing again for one but my Core 5 arrived with a broken thumb shifter. R1U has offered to send a replacement.. Cool! Assembly went fairly smooth.. however the how-to videos regarding headsets and bearings were for the 500 series and the LMT’D. This caused a bunch of confusion. I took care to separate top and bottom bearings etc. though they eventually became mixed up. I advise you to keep them separated and in order of assembly. Aside from that, the Core 5 came together. Completed the assembly with lights, a bike alarm, phone cradle, air pump and a rear rack, a bottle cage is on the way. It really is a two man job to assemble, not necessary but helpful. This bike is just plain beautiful! Maintaining the classic look of a bicycle, a concealed battery, adorned with familiar brand-named components. None of it high end none of it cheap. The Core 5 design and geometry is the same as their higher end LMT’D. With changing weather, I look forward to touring the nearby Finger Lakes, but for now, a showpiece in the middle of my living room. Hope to provide further thoughts and observations. karl..
