Easy Motion EVO 27.5″ 2015
The Easy Motion EVO 27.5” is a smart choice for those seeking a versatile electric bike. Although it’s classified as a mountain bike, it’s still a good fit for street riding. The suspension and tire size are essential when riding off-road and make the ride more comfortable when on-road. If you want to be able to ride trails as well as get around town, this bike is worth considering. In addition, the Easy Motion EVO 27.5” has a 17% smaller cross section with a narrower and stylized design of the diagonal tube and a removable battery which makes charging simpler.
Battery: The bike comes with a 36V 12Ah (432Wh) lithium-ion battery made by Samsung. It provides a range of up to 56 miles on the lowest level of assist, and only takes 3-4 hours to fully charge. Like all 2015 Easy Motion bikes, the battery can be easily removed and transported for charging. These batteries last about 3-5 years and provide about 1,000 charges, which will power the bicycle for 10,000 to 20,000 miles.
Brakes: The Easy Motion EVO 27.5” comes with Tektro E-Comp 180mm/160mm hydraulic disc brakes, the most advanced braking system available. In addition to providing the greatest stopping power, hydraulic disc brakes allow for degrees of braking power instead of all or nothing. They also perform better than anything else under extreme weather and terrain conditions.
Frame: The 27.5”’s battery is integrated into the downtube of the frame. This improves the bike’s balance and offers greater protection to the battery. The frame is purpose built, which means it was designed from scratch to be an electric bike by building the battery into the frame. This hides the wiring and offers greater protection to the battery and controller.The Easy Motion EVO 27.5”’s frame comes with a top-tube design. This style increases the frame’s capacity to handle the stress of off-road terrain.
Motor: The Easy Motion EVO 27.5” comes with a 350W geared brushless rear hub motor. This will provide the same amount of power as a 500W gearless motor while weighing 7 lbs. less with a smaller diameter. Geared motors are much more efficient than their gearless counterparts, providing exceptional torque especially when climbing hills.
Riding Modes: In power-on-demand mode, the EVO 27.5” can be ridden like a moped by applying the throttle or as a regular bicycle by pedaling. The bike also has four levels of pedal assist, giving you the ability to regulate how much help you receive from the motor. You can get just a little bit of assistance, or three times as much output as you put in, with two more settings in between. The 27.5” also preserves the intuitive, natural ride of a bicycle thanks to it’s torque sensor system. The motor knows exactly how hard you’re pedaling and adjusts its level of assistance from moment to moment.
