M1 Schwabing Belt Drive Test 2015/16

Summary: A trend-setting cracker with unusual frame geometry and the highest power assist values of any bike on test. Clear test winner in the lifestyle pedelec product group.

The Schwabing M1 is a real eye-catcher among the bikes on test, and its carbon frame with interrupted seat tube gives it a unique, unified look. The Brooks saddle is the perfect accompaniment, along with the beige tyres and the classy smooth leather grips. But what at first glance looks like a cruiser turns out to be more of a hurricane of a bike, just as soon as you start pedalling. After a brief start-up phase the 500 watt cleanmobile motor assists your ride aggressively, and it unleashes its power distinctly audibly, too – it throttles back detectably only while shifting gears. You’re swiftly whisked up to the power assist speed limit of 45 km/h. At such high speeds, however, some test riders remarked that the stiffness of the frame could be greater. Thanks to the substantial, and hard to remove, battery pack, the second largest in the test with 877 watt hours, the M1 achieved solid range figures despite its high motor power. The rest of the specification is the finest available: NuVinci transmission, Gates belt drive and top quality disk brakes are all fitted to this classy lifestyle pedelec as a matter of course.
