Carver Cityzen 1050 - Easy Good

The Cityzen 1050 is a practical and versatile low step-through bike, visually striking and with great ride quality from a stepless transmission and, for its class, a very powerful motor.
 

 
You sit upright in the saddle on the Carver Cityzen, with the strongly swept-back bars and relatively tall stem delivering a great view and a feeling of gliding along at your leisure. But for anyone who intends to tackle longer rides, rather than just use the Cityzen for errands around town, the Speedlifter stem also provides the option of quickly changing your riding position. 

This pedelec is right on trend when it comes to the colour scheme: discreet matt black, set off by highlights in metallic red. And despite a somewhat high overall weight, it still achieves a solid range thanks to the large battery capacity – and that while providing very powerful assistance in all types of riding. When it comes to comfort in use it is in a class of its own, with the stepless transmission complementing the Bosch Performance motor. All crunching and grinding when changing gears is eliminated. Nonetheless, some test riders did note a certain lack of liveliness on hill starts. With its solid frame-integrated carrier rack, its reliable brakes and with its cables almost entirely routed internally, the Cityzen 1050 made a very tidy impression overall.
