The sleek and stylish Elby S1 comes in five colors – gray, orange, white, light blue, and black. The step-through design of its aluminum frame makes it easy for riders of any height to mount and dismount, while the e-bike’s wide, padded saddle boosts comfort. Ergonomic handlebar grips with non-slip rubber surfaces give riders better control, too.
Power and Range
This e-bike is powered by a cutting-edge 500W BionX D500 motor system, which makes climbing hills a breeze. If you prefer not to pedal, you’ll love the Elby S1’s thumb-activated throttle. Range is also a big plus on this e-bike—its 556 wH battery yields a max range of up to 80 miles.
A Convenient App
The Elby app is hands down one of the most unique and convenient features about this e-bike. It showcases all kinds of useful data about your ride and e-bike, including your average speed, travel distance, battery life, torque level, motor power available, and even the weather. You can also enter a destination into the app’s map and it will let you know if you have enough power to get there without recharging your bike’s battery.
This is an amazing bike! From front to back, everything on this bike is high quality. It is surprising how much fun it is to press the throttle on this bike and accelerate up to speed without having to pedal.
I’ve ridden a lot of electric bikes in my time and find many of them a collection of parts that make it easier to get around, but that’s about it. What separates the Elby is the level of integration and design of all the ebike components into something that truly works together and is a joy to ride.
Every inch of the bike is thought through, from how the simple, rugged battery connection to the hydraulic disc brakes to the tire choice, to the adorable little bell. The custom battery shape works aesthetically with the frame and is not some obtrusive piece strapped to the down tube of the bike. By putting it down low, it also adds to the stability of the bike, making it handle like a dream, regardless of speed.
I am very pleased with this bike from assembly to riding it 38 miles already within 3 days. If you’ve never ridden an electric bike be careful at first while getting used to the power engagement after pedaling. Then rack up the fun miles!
