For more petite e-bike riders it’s most likely a struggle to find a model with the right height and frame design so that they feel comfortable during long rides. And trying try to carry a big, heavy bike, is no fun either. Finding an electric bike that allows you to be comfortable and that’s practical enough for daily use can be a game changer.
At 35.1 lbs. (15.9 kg), the Angell S comes as close to an ethereal metal creature as a bike could. Although lightweight, the frame is made of high-strength aluminum for durability, and, together with the inclined crossbar, it’s adapted to enable a comfortable posture for people ranging from 5 feet to 6 feet (1.55-1.85 m) tall. Also, the wide, padded saddle and ergonomic leather handles make the riding experience even more comfortable.
But, don’t think that just because it’s lighter, Angell S can’t compete with “tougher” bikes. Its compact, removable battery gives it a 43 miles (70 km) range, and it comes with 3 pedal-assistance modes. You can choose to “fly dry” and enjoy the maximum range, “fly Eco” when you’re trying to save your battery, or “fly fast”, at 15 mph (25 kph).
And, of course, there’s always the option of riding with no assistance. Plus, the Angell features multiple sensors that can choose the best type of assistance, based on the type of terrain. This way, you can avoid extra effort when climbing.
The small frame Angell S bike will be delivered just in time for summer, for the price of $3,267 (€2,690).
