Evelo Electric Bicycle Company offers the Aurora bicycle, which is designed for commuting or recreational use by men and women, and is ideally suited for people who want to exercise while RVing, but don’t want to work so hard getting up hills.
The European-inspired frame is designed so that people can easily mount and dismount the bicycle. With full-throttle mode, the Aurora can attain top speeds of 20 mph and using the pedal assist feature, it can travel a range of up to 60 miles.
The bicycle includes a NuVinci N360 transmission that allows gears to be shifted easily at any speed. An LCD display provides a visual aid to help the cyclist indicate travel up hill or on flat roads, so that the gears can adjust to accommodate the terrain.
The 500-watt mid-drive motor actually delivers peak power of 750 watts in order to traverse virtually any terrain. The extended-range Panasonic battery recharges in four to six hours by plugging into any standard electric outlet.
The Aurora comes with an 18-month comprehensive warranty, which can be optionally extended for another six months. The warranty covers the battery, controller, motor and frame.
Most people enjoy the seat that is included on the Aurora, but if a customer wishes to buy a different seat, the company will reimburse up to $40 to ensure the ride is as comfortable as possible, the company noted.
