With its ergonomic frame and good range, the sixthreezero EVRYjourney 500W is a good commuter and utility electric bike at a great price.
If you’re returning to cycling and aren’t so fit, the thumb throttle will take you to 20 mph without breaking a sweat and flatten every hill in the way. It can even take you up to 28 mph on pedal assist — though this isn’t strictly permitted under the three-class e-bike system.
Ergonomics and comfort are the name of the game with this electric bike. While the curved crossbar is an aesthetic element, it also allows you to get your foot over with ease because it’s lower at the rear than the front. At the same time, the forward pedaling position allows for optimal pedaling without your foot being too high from the ground.
If you’re pedaling, the 500 Watt-hour battery will give you a great range of around 30 miles on typical terrain (40 on flat). That changes to 10-15 miles in real-world terrain on throttle only. Put together, this all makes for a great-looking electric bike that won’t challenge you (unless you choose to ride it hard!).
Reasons to Buy
If you want a comfortable and quick electric bike that’ll offer more than enough range for typical cycling, the EVRYjourney could well be the right electric bike for you. With its fenders and rack, you can carry your gear (including rider weight, up to 300 lbs) in less favorable conditions.
We love this e-bike for its comfort. Let’s face it: sports saddles on many bikes be a pain in the rear! Even after 10-15 miles in the saddle, you won’t be walking funny with the extra-wide saddle. The ergonomics of this e-bike all work together to make for a bike that even less fit riders may find comfortable — even on a battery-testing 30-mile run.
Things to Consider
Sixthreezero says you can cycle up to speeds of 28 mph with pedal assist. The size of the smallest cog on the cassette is 14 teeth, which will mean that cycling at anything above 20 mph will require a very high cadence indeed. What this actually means is that you’ll be able to get battery support in nearly all your cycling, even on those downhill sections where you can ride hard.
