Considering a Raleigh Electric Bike?

Are you are looking for the best electric bicycle and trying to compare your options? We invite you to take a look at how EVELO Electric Bicycles stack up to Raleigh. EVELO Electric Bicycles offer a wide range of comfortable, easy-to-ride and low-maintenance electric bikes with industry-leading warranty and unparalleled customer service experience.

Key Takeaways

  • For ebikes with offroad capabilities, power is what most riders are looking for. If you get tired and encounter a steep hill, a 250W motor with no throttle-only option simply won't do. All EVELO models, including the Delta X, come equipped with a full throttle so you can pedal as much or as little as you want. A 750W motor on the Delta X generates 120Nm of torque and will get you up any hill with ease, no matter how steep.
  • With the Delta X, you won't have to worry about figuring out a complicated gearing system. Most EVELO bikes come equipped with the NuVinci internally-geared transmission which eliminates the dereillure entirely and can be adjusted with a simple twist of a dial.
  • With EVELO you'll get a peace of mind with the industry-leading 4-year/20,000-mile warranty. Most Raleigh components are covered for only 1 year.
If you're shopping for an electric trike, here is how Raleigh's Tristarmodel compares to the EVELO Compass:

Key Takeaways

  • With an electric trike, control, safety and stability are very important. The EVELO Compass features a powerful 500W motor with a full throttle so that you can pedal as much or as little as you want. The Tristar offers no throttle and comes with a less powerful motor.
  • Unlike the Tristar, the Compass comes with mechanical disk brakes on both the front and the rear. This translates to a much better stopping power and a safer ride.
  • The EVELO Compass also comes with a longer-range battery. You can even add a second battery for a combined range of up to 80 miles on a single charge!
  • The Compass is covered by the same great 4-year/20,000-mile warranty as the rest of the EVELO lineup. It ships for free anywhere in the continental U.S. and comes with a 10-day free, at-home trial.
