As the bike market becomes more about performance and high-tech advancements, I’m trying to find a balance between engineering and aesthetics. Luckily for me, Velotric’s Discover 1 has made that easy.
Providing a subtle, almost retro design, the Discover 1 gives its riders a sense of comfort and style when riding. Considered a commuter bike, it’s not going to have the ruggedness of some of its e-bikes cousins – but that’s a good thing. It’s a simple, effective way to get from point A to point B, all while making the riding experience as comfortable as possible.
Looking under the proverbial hood, this bike packs a punch way above its slim design. It’s got a 500W high-performance motor and a 65Nm torque for a smooth, exciting, and effortless riding experience. Couple that with an ergonomic, integrated design from handlebars to seat and you have yourself a comfortable ride ahead. And since this is an e-bike, I’d be remiss to mention the battery life of this bad boy. It’s got a 60-mile range on a single charge, giving this an advantage over similar bikes in its price range and class.
Discover 1 has all the bells and whistles of a bike that’s twice its price tag, but doesn’t compromise on style. At just under $1400 and free shipping, it’s a great bike to take you around town or go explore some of those back roads that are calling your name this summer.
