YouMo One X500 - Tour Very Good, Easy & Family Good

The YouMo One X500 – an astonishing all-rounder. “Very Good” in the tour product group and “Good” as both family and easy pedelec. A pedelec 45 for cruising at above 25 km/h.

Knut Späte has been building this YouMo in Switzerland since 2014. Originally intended for his son, he spared no expense when it came to the quality of the cycle components fitted. It all adds up to a price of € 5,940. And it’s € 950 for a battery pack. But the range of 133 km, unrivalled in the test, had a direct impact on its “Very Good” verdict in the Tour product group. Ride quality without the motor was satisfactory for this 36.1 kg heavyweight. "Considering the weight, it still rides pretty well", commented one test rider. The riding position is surprisingly agreeable. "On the YouMo you sit as if in a chair”, stated the test riders. Because there’s little weight to be supported on your hands, steering is easy on the wrists. When you stop, it’s easy to put your feet flat on the ground, while thanks to the set-forwards bottom bracket your knees are still ideally positioned for pedalling. YouMo: "an ergonomic hidden gem."
