The Comfort Cruiser comes with the option of two frame styles (step-thru and classic), two wheel sizes (24” and 26”), and three color choices (red, coral, or midnight blue) to provide each rider with an e-bike that feels like it was individually crafted to their needs. It has a top-grade seven-speed drivetrain that enables smooth shifting and comfortable pedaling, plus it’s equipped with PedalSense® for twist-and-go throttle and five levels of pedal assist.
The 36-volt brushless geared rear hub motor packs ample power for the more casual nature of this electric bike, while its range of 30–50 miles is impressive for its class. Each model also comes with a fixed and adjustable grayscale backlit LCD, which is great for showcasing and recording key information during your ride.
Reasons to Buy
Many fall in love with the Comfort Cruiser’s good looks, yet its impressive lineup of features is what makes this model a true standout in the beach cruiser category. Its sizable rear rack is perfect for storing your riding essentials, while the model’s LCD even contains a handy USB port built into its base. This added feature is great for charging your device while on the go — particularly if you like to activate your GPS or listen to music while cruising.
The model’s versatility in size and frame type is also a huge plus, as it means riders of a wide range of heights can still enjoy this e-bike. The added convenience of a step-thru model is also a huge advantage to shorter riders who would otherwise struggle to mount a classic frame.
While Pedego’s Comfort Cruiser isn’t the most affordable beach cruiser available (nor is it the most expensive, however), its superior comfort and use of high-quality, trusted Pedego products is what gives it excellent value for money.
The Pedego Comfort Cruiser also isn’t without its safety features. These include standard reflectors, an integrated three-LED rear light, and tires containing white sidewalls for extra visibility. The brand’s five-year-limited warranty is also a rarity and will give you added peace of mind.
Things to Consider
Keep in mind that this electric bike is for cruising, so don’t expect it to handle mountainous terrain or reach high speeds. If the maximum speed of 20 mph is sounding too slow for your needs, then consider upgrading to a more powerful beach cruiser, such as the Juiced Scambler, which can reach top speeds of 28 mph.
Despite having a few solid safety features, the Pedego Comfort Cruiser may make riding at night difficult without a front headlight. Thankfully, Pedego does sell an optional headlight that you can add on, and the model is already pre-wired for it.
