While the European ebike scene has really developed in recent times, Helsinki-based Urban Cycles Oy think they have spotted a gap in the market. This has seen them produce the Equal ebike in order to fill it. Made to handle busy European city streets, this bike not only looks stylish but also comes in at under 15kg. This makes it a viable lightweight option for city travel. Coming with a starting price of €1,490, it sits perfectly between cheaper but basic ebikes and more advanced models which cost more.
What does the Equal ebike offer?
The truth is that this is a bike which comes with a lot of cool features. For starters, there is a 250 watt rear hub motor which gives plenty of power for the rider to use. There is also an in-frame Li-ion battery which is fully lockable for extra security. The Equal also has chain drive for smoother riding and adaptive pedal assist up to 25 km/h. The range per charge is around 50km which is pretty decent for city use. Also included are Shimano hydraulic brakes for awesome braking and Road Cruiser tyres on 28-inch alloys for total riding comfort.
Looks are also impressive
While the technical spec is always important to any rider, how a bike looks is also key. This is especially true if you will be using it in the city to travel to work or to meet up with friends. The Equal scores well here and has a modern, clean design. While no integrated dashboard is included, you can hook any iOS/Android device up to show key metrics like speed and distance as you go. The frame is made from aluminium and comes in a refined, eye-catching grey colour.
