Gentle on the street and in your pockets!

Single-speed e-bikes are wonderful choices for anybody seeking a light-weight, simple e-bike that merely works. And among the best choices available on the market within the US has confirmed to be the Propella V4.0.

This new replace to the Propella line brings a number of upgrades over the last version of the bike I tested nearly 18 months ago.

The most recent Propella V4.0, which additionally accessible in a 7-speed setup for those who need to cope with annoyances like hills, stays one of the affordably priced commuter e-bikes on the market.

The one pace model is a reasonable $1,099, which makes it simply shy of breaking into the coveted sub-$1,000 e-bikes category. However that additional $99 might be value it when you can swing it.

Simply take a look at my video overview of this new e-bike beneath to see it examined in a commuter position, then learn on for the complete overview.

Two bikes for 2 forms of riders

First off, I’m solely protecting the single-speed e-bike right here since that’s what I examined. As I discussed, there’s a 7-speed model too, do you have to really feel the necessity for additional gears. It’s largely the identical because the single-speed bike, however prices an additional $200.

At an inexpensive $1,099, I like the only pace.

The motor is highly effective sufficient for all of the flat land driving I do and might even show you how to up medium hills, although this isn’t an excessively highly effective e-bike.

There’s no throttle although, so that you’re all the time going to be including your individual pedal energy as effectively.

With the single-speed setup, the considerably taller gearing mixed with the slight lag of cadence sensor-based pedal help means you’ve obtained to place slightly extra oomph into getting rolling. However after that first half pedal stroke or so, the help kicks in and also you’ve obtained all of the increase you’ll want.

On Stage 1 pedal help, the motor provides only a good little tail wind however isn’t very noticeable. When you click on it up into Stage 4 or 5 the enjoyable actually begins as you blast as much as 18.5 mph (30 km/h) decently shortly. Once more – this isn’t a motorbike so don’t count on loopy acceleration. But it surely does its job of serving to you’re taking the sting off as you carry out your individual pedaling.
