The Frey Savannah is one of very few e-bikes on the U.S. market with dual suspension and a step-through frame. This makes it ideal for riders who may not have the mobility to get their leg over a crossbar yet want to venture off-road.
Powered by a Bafang M620 mid-drive motor, it’ll get to 36 mph on throttle or pedal assist. Offering up to 160 Nm of torque, the motor is up there among the most powerful commercially available on the road today. Along with the motor comes a huge, 840 Wh battery that gives you a lot of range if you use it economically.
The Schwalbe road tires make this e-bike one for mostly road use, though, on dry surfaces, they’ll handle off-roading. You can always retrofit mud tires if you’re planning to overland regularly.
With high-quality name-branded disc brakes, suspension, and other components, the Frey Savannah ULTRA should last many years of use with minimal maintenance.
Reasons to Buy
If you have limited mobility and still want the comfort of a dual-suspension electric bike for off-road use, the Savannah Frey CC is a good choice. It even allows you to ride an e-bike off-road while wearing a dress. This e-bike suits both types of buyers, and with its high-quality components like the RockShox suspension and Bafang electrical system, it should be roadworthy even after many years of use.
Things to Consider
The speed is limited to 36 mph. That’s well over most state laws on e-bikes. A Class 3, for example, can only go up to 28 mph on pedal assist and 20 mph on throttle. This exceeds both. If you do buy, remember the laws where you live, and don’t exceed the speed limits.
