The Pedego Element’s 6061-T6 aluminum alloy frame is durable, yet lightweight, allowing the e-bike to offer easy maneuverability — especially for smaller riders. The e-bike’s all-aluminum design also means the product is rust-resistant, unlike steel, adding to its wet weather resilience. The addition of a 3-amp charger, as opposed to the standard 2-amp charger of a mid-tier e-bike, also allows for faster charging in just 3-4 hours.
The addition of a USB port in the LCD display unit is also a great touch and something that not all e-bike models include. This means you can charge your phone while on the go, which is particularly beneficial for those who like to use their device’s GPS or listen to music.
Perhaps the most key feature of the Pedego Element is its Kenda black wall 20’’ x 4’’ tires, which are thick enough to offer considerable stability and shock absorption over a variety of terrains.
Reasons to Buy
One of the biggest selling points of this e-bike is its 20” x 4” fat tires, which provide the versatility and traction to ride on basically any terrain — from sandy beaches and muddy trails, to the slick pavement of city streets. This makes it a great all-rounder for more diverse riders.
The model is also highly adaptive to each individual’s needs. Although it’s only available in one size, the frame can be modified to suit both shorter and taller riders. The option of several aftermarket extras allows each buyer to tailor the product even further, while the model’s availability in six distinct colors also enables greater customization.
Despite its more affordable price tag of $1,995, this e-bike is anything but flimsy. It features high-quality components like disc brakes, seven gears, a sturdy kickstand, heavy-duty spokes, and a removable battery that’s beautifully integrated into the frame.
Things to Consider
While the Pedego Element contains a lot of quality features, it is somewhat lacking in the safety department. Buyers can add a front light, however, there are no options for rear lights or reflective stripes.
Although the tires are made by the trusted brand Kenda, they don’t contain a puncture-resistant liner. This means there’s a higher chance of suffering a flat tire if you often take the e-bike off-road or have low tire pressure.
