Amslod Aston - Easy Good, City-Comfort Good

A chic Dutch-style easy and comfort pedelec with high range on tour and in the city. The quiet, powerful and easy to operate mid motor was impressive. Still needed: a more stable frame and increased payload.
 

 
The Amslod Aston is a very chic bike, and it’s available exclusively through amslod retail channels – for the relatively low price of 1995 Euro. The manufacturer only sells this bike direct, not via dealers. To date the brand has been best-known in the Netherlands, but for 2017 it is extending sales to other countries. It impressed with its range of 84.9 km on the tour route – that means it achieved one of the highest ranges for an Easy Pedelec, with a respectably powerful U-factor of 1.27. One limitation is the payload rating of just 102.2 kg, so you should think twice about mounting a child-seat on the carrier rack, because this could exacerbate the bike’s existing tendency to shimmy. The manufacturer has announced that they will be improving the frame design. The Bafang mid motor was pleasantly quiet and intuitive to operate, at least once you’ve discovered that first you need to operate the main switch on the battery before you can start the system from the handlebars.
