Kreidler Vitality Eco 3 - Easy Very Good

The Kreidler Vitality Eco 3 looks innocuous enough, but when it comes to its safety-critical specification, it’s phenomenally good.
 

 
Safety is the priority on the Kreidler Vitality Eco 3. It’s the only bike on test in this price category fitted with Magura HS 22 hydraulic rim brakes with brake boosters and red pads. These safety-critical components are complemented by wear indicators on the rims. Chapeau to the Kreidler Vitality Eco 3.

 
The 250W Bosch Active mid motor is clearly audible on this bike, “especially in lower gears”, complained the test riders.
 
The frame tube above the mid motor is a nice touch, ideal for lifting or carrying the Kreidler Vitality Eco 3. In the ergonomics test this bike won above-average marks in the hard-fought easy pedelecs product group for carrying up steps, lifting up onto a platform and mounting onto a car carrier rack.
 
The prices of battery and complete bikes are, at 649,90 and 2399 Euro, somewhat lower than the average for easy pedelecs on test. Service availability, battery longevity and drive system reliability were rated as good in the dealer survey.
