This bike is small, light and foldable.
Cannondale bikes have just unveiled its lightest electric bike to date, the Compact Neo, with a foldable design perfect for city center travel. The powerful bike has a low frame which makes it easy to ride and you won’t break your back carrying it up a flight of stairs.
At first glance, this doesn’t look like an electric bike, but that’s because the downtube of the frame hides the battery. As a result, we’re getting a familiar yet stylish Cannondale bike with some good retro vibes.
The ebike weighs only 40lbs, which is quite light in the world of electric bikes. However, the company didn’t skimp on specs to keep the bike light. We’re getting large, grippy 20-inch wheels, one size fits all designs, Tektro hydraulic brakes and 8-speed gears, not to mention the fenders and lights on the front and rear.
Also, the bike has a nice rear rack and some fun colored stripes on the front fork. Hidden in the frame is a 250Wh battery capable of propelling the bike to 20MPH on the 250W rear hub motor.
Cannondale says cyclists can enjoy a range of up to 47 miles on a single charge depending on the level of pedal assistance. It’s more than enough to get it up and running and a wide range for weekend adventures.
It’s worth noting that this bike doesn’t fold like most on the market, so it’s not super compact, considering the name. The handlebar folds away and you can store the pedals, making it easy to store in a tight space.
The Cannondale Compact Neo ebike comes in black and is now available for $ 1,900 from Cannondale and the official bike shop partners.
