Road E-Bikes

ROAD E-BIKES

Household names lead an exciting list of exhibitors at the Evans Cycles London e-Bike Festival sponsored by Shimano Steps. Here is our first selection of Road bikes you can see at the show, more coming soon. 

Cannondale SuperSix Evo Neo

The SuperSix EVO Neo is targeted at enthusiasts who might be “seeking to enhance their riding experience with a discreet boost” and who are more performance-oriented. The EVO Neo gets a carbon frame much like that of its unpowered counterpart, and a weight that’s much closer to that of a conventional bike. It uses a Mahle ebikemotion hub motor and a hidden battery to achieve a total claimed weight of just 11.3kg in its top spec. Svelte, smooth and super fast. It’s a bike for people seeking a pure, high-performance road riding experience – with a boost. Starting at £3,599 for the Neo 3 and tops out at £7,999 for the lovely Neo 1 below.

Cube Agree Hybrid C-62

Cube were one of the first major bike brands to enter the e-road market and there’s a lot to be said for not messing with a successful formula. By enclosing the removable Fazua drive unit and battery entirely within the down tube, Cube’s engineering team succeeded in creating a stiff and strong backbone – but, just as importantly, one that looked and felt very much like a normal road bike. Equipped with Shimano’s powerful DuraAce hydraulic disc brakes and their electronic DuraAce Di2 transmission, combined with completely concealed cables you get a package that makes for a superb, sleek looking road machine.

Forme Flash E

When Forme launched this bike back in January, ebiketips posed the question whether it was the most handsome British e-road bike yet. In ten short years since Forme was created, they’ve certainly carved a reputation for designing robust bikes built to deal with tough British roads, but the Flash E is definitely very easy on the eye too. Equipped with a 4.6kh Fazua motor system, Shimano Ultegra, DT Swiss wheels, the Flash E is clearly Forme’s flagship model, but also priced very competitively at an anticipated £4,675 when it hits the shops.

Specialized Turbo Creo SL 

The Creo is Specialized’s first drop bar e-bike and the end result of a two year plus development programme. The results from that effort are clear to see with the US brand merging cycling and technology to develop a unique system from the ground up which includes a proprietary battery and motor system that is lighter than anything else available on the market. This does come at a price though with the Creo SL on sale at just shy of £11,000. But if you’re in the market for a bike that retains the racy, lively feel of an S-Works Roubaix  with 130km of range as standard, then look no further.

Trek Domane Plus LT

Trek’s Domane+ LT is a carbon drop-bar electric bike designed for roadies who want an authentic road bike experience with an extra bit of oomph when needed. The reliable and efficient Fazua drive system kicks things up a notch when called upon, like riding into a strong headwind or the last few hundred metres of a climb, but its sleek design means it doesn’t drag or hold you back when it’s not in use. The Domane+ gives the rider the high-performance benefits of an OCLV Carbon frame, road-smoothing IsoSpeed, and Shimano Ultegra components. We also like the colour combination, but there’s three other options if you don’t agree.

Ribble SLe Di2

British company Ribble entered the e-bike market with a bang in 2018 with the launch of Endurance SLe, instantly finding favour with roadies. Ribble hailed the new bike as the world’s lightest e-bike available and while other brands have since released their own lightweight models, the SLe comes in at an impressive circa 11kg complete. The internal battery which powers the rear wheel can give between 250w right up to 750w with extra battery packs when travelling under 25kph. A button on the top tube allows you to select three power settings of up 40NM. Ribble bikes can be customised to suit you and if they’re good enough for Sean Yates then they should be good enough for the rest of us mere mortals.

THE EVANS CYCLE LONDON E-BIKE FESTIVAL POSTPONED

It is with great regret that Upper Street Events has taken the decision that, as a result of the evolving Covid-19 situation, it is no longer possible for us to hold The Evans Cycle London e-Bike Festival 2020 (2 – 3 May, Battersea Evolution).

We have been following UK Government guidelines and advice from Public Health England and other organisations as the situation has evolved and, given the latest announcements with regards to mass gatherings, it is now with much sadness that we have taken the decision that we will need to postpone the event. The safety and wellbeing of our staff, exhibitors, visitors, partners and contractors is of the upmost importance to us, and the protection and prevention of harm to all involved is vital.

We are currently working with Battersea Evolution to look at options to reschedule The Evans Cycle London e-Bike Festival to a later date.

Ticket holders, exhibitors and sponsors will be contacted directly within the next 14 days with regards to transferring bookings or refunds as required.

We are sincerely sorry that we have had to take this incredibly difficult course of action and thank you for bearing with us at this uncertain time.

Please take care and we hope to see you later this year.
