Big fun in a small package.

The Galaxy 500 is our most powerful compact cruiser, and is a great choice for any rider looking for a compact bicycle that’s easy to ride, and easy to move around the garage. Features include an upright and comfortable riding position, both Pedal Assistance and Throttle, as well as the Enviolo CVT system with Harmony automatic shifting, and the Gates Carbon Drive Belt. A powerful and reliable build means you spend more time riding with minimal maintenance and down time. An extra deep step-through frame for accessibility, large squishy tires for comfort and traction, and smaller 24” wheels make the Galaxy 500 our easiest riding model; a great choice for riders of nearly any height or skill level.

Galaxy 500 Features

Easy to get on and off for both men and women

Removing the top tube from a high power electric bicycle is no easy task, but EVELO engineers have designed the Galaxy 500 to offer the lowest point of entry possible, making it easy to get on and off the bike for both men and women. Looking to load up for your next adventure? The step through frame also benefits touring cyclists, making it easy to get on and off your bicycle with a full load of gear on the rear rack. This is the future of eBikes.

Don't worry about when to change gears, it's automatic

Enviolo Continuously Variable Transmissions are powered by NuVinci technology, and offer the absolute smoothest shifting experience possible, with no moving external parts. The Galaxy 500 also features the Harmony system, which is an electronic shifting element for the CVT - which means the bike does all of the shifting for you. This package is maintenance free, offers both manual and automatic shifting, is easy to operate, and is hands down the cutting edge in bicycle shifting technology.

Rear Rack Battery - Lowest Step Through Frame

Go the extra mile with EVELO’s top-tier Li-ion cell technology. Our lightweight 13AH rear rack battery offers extended range, and is easily removed for charging on or off your bicycle. The rear rack battery allows for the lowest step through frame possible, making the Galaxy one of our lightest and easiest to ride models. With short charge times and up to 50 miles of range for your average rider, you can ride and explore more, and spend less time worrying about when to head back home.

Perfect e-Bike

I've had my Galaxy 500 for just about a month now and have about 120 miles on it, despite the snow we had this month. This is my first e-bike, having biked for years. I'm now retired, 65, overweight, and live on a hill which I couldn't pedal up with a regular bike. I can get up the steepest hill with ease now. My biking buddies all take their bikes on car racks to the place we meet up for our 10-15 mile ride, since they too live on the hill and can't bike up the hill to home. I now bike from home to our rendezvous, no longer worried about getting back up the hill. I did replace the factory seat with a Bikeroo which is much more comfortable and EVELO credited $40 back to me for it. I look for a break in the weather now to ride this bike at least 3 times a week (just finished a nice 10 mile ride today on the wonderful biking/hiking trails in Bellingham). I love the mid-drive, Gates Belt, and automatic gear. I used the manual mode for quite a while because of my experience with regular bikes, but using the automatic (blue) mode is quite responsive and has become my default mode of travel now--it just works!! I definitely made the right choice with EVELO. There are cheaper options out there, but I don't think you can get any other e-bike with the full features and quality of EVELO for less (and in fact, with the top quality components, most other brands similarly equipped bikes are more). I'm looking forward to many years of enjoyment.

Galaxy 500

This bike is a DREAM!! I’m 5’1 & have been riding a PEDEGO electric bike for 10 years. The Evelo Galaxy 500 is so light & maneuverable. I was worried the CVT would be loud, but it’s so quiet! I thought the fenders might rattle & be loud. Not a sound! The handle bars are a bit of a far reach as I am used to the upright beach cruiser style. Customer service called me back in 3 hours & has found a solution to swap out the bars for a swept back style. I am so thrilled with this bike! It was hard to finally pull the trigger & make such a huge purchase( retiree, fixed income), but the Black Friday sale helped & I know I’ll have this bike at least 10 years like my other bike... so happy!

Love it!

Customer service helped me to add a 3” stem to my new Galaxy 500 to give me a more cruiser style ride. I’m 5’1”, so the factory stem didn’t give me what I wanted in the ride. That was the only thing missing to make it perfect. I rode the Pedego on vacation and that was my first experience with an ebike. I knew that I wanted an ebike then as it was such a joy riding it. After research, I decided to give Evelo a try. The 21 day trial wins out over others as you truly find out what it is like to ride the bike versus the competition where you get a five minute ride around a parking lot. Once I received my Galaxy 500 with the cadence option and experienced the ride, I knew that I had made the right choice.

An honest assessment

After some problems in the beginning, I received prompt assistance from the support team and solved the mystery. Since then, I have been enjoying the smooth and quiet ride on my daily commute. Hopefully, I can add some range to the battery with full charges from depleted. Put over 500 miles on it so far and love the bike. It was especially gratifying when I was riding through the neighborhood and a neighbor yelled, "Nice bike!"

I love my Evelo Galaxy ebike. I have been on trails and it is so easy to use the pedal assist going up hills. I enjoy biking so much more now.

FAQs

Is the Galaxy 500 a good choice for me?

The Galaxy 500 is a feature packed bicycle, with an easy access step-through, and comfortable riding position. This bike is perfect for primarily road riding, some trail riding, and can tackle even the steepest hills and toughest climbs across the country. The mid drive motor system uses a torque sensor, which offers a smooth and natural feeling, but does require minimal pedal pressure to get going. The smaller frame and wheel size make it the best choice for riders under 5’6” - but can easily support taller riders looking for an easy to manage bike as well.

Does the Galaxy 500 have enough power for my terrain?

Mid Drive eBikes are the top of the line as far as power is concerned, and the Galaxy 500 is certainly no exception. The Galaxy 500 can handle larger riders with ease, and can comfortably climb 8% grade with no pedaling whatsoever. The powerful Mid Drive motor, combined with the Enviolo Harmony Automatic shifting system operates at the highest efficiency possible, offering the most power, and range in its class.

Will I fit properly on the Galaxy?

The Galaxy can be adjusted to suit Small and Medium sized riders.. Take a closer look at our sizing chart and specifications on the product page. A great way to compare this to your existing bike is to measure your current saddle height straight down to the ground - this gives you a real number to compare to the specs on our website. If this measurement is over 29” - you’ll fit well on the Galaxy 500. The saddle goes a full 3” lower than our Aurora Limited, and is a whopping 15lbs lighter.
