iGo Urban Review
The iGo Urban is one of the most affordable mid-drive ebikes around. Mid drive means we get improved climbing ability and range. The big benefit of the mid-drive system is that it leverages the same gears the rider uses to overcome hills or reach higher speeds more efficiently.
The bike offers three levels of pedal assist and twist throttle with a simple LED control console. The bike uses a 250 watt mid-drive motor with a 36 volt Lithium-ion battery.The motor is positioned just in front of the bottom bracket and balances weight on the bike and keeps the center of gravity low in some ways but also adds complexity to the design.
iGo offers several models to choose from. The Urban is one of the favorite designs because it’s simple and easy to approach given the low-step design. The plastic casing around the battery seems durable and waterproof and it features a metal spring rack so we can add a cargo pack on top. The lower price point, lighter footprint and stiffer frame of the bike is really commendable. Read the complete review from ElectricBikeReview.com.by
