eflow CM2

An all-rounder with good handling, intuitive to use and with an unconventional design. The smooth and quiet motor leaves scope to be more sporty.
 

 

The bike for individualists, with the quiet Continental mid motor. This performs rather towards the lower end of the power assist factor scale, but it doesn’t feel like it, and it was great fun for the test riders.

The voluminous frame tubes and the direct lines of the frame, following the forces involved, leave no doubt that this is a bike that can withstand heavy duty use. The manufacturer has confirmed that it is rated to carry up to around 130 kg, meaning that even somewhat heavier people can also go on tour without worrying about its robustness. For touring, though, you will need to attach your luggage to frame and handlebars in bikepacking fashion: no carrier rack mounting points are provided.

For shorter rides without luggage, a drinks bottle cage can easily be fitted inside the frame triangle. Thanks to the mid motor and seat-tube mounted battery, the weight of the electrical drive system is placed centrally and very low.

Although this bike has no suspension seatpost test riders judged it to be a comfortable ride: the high-volume Mountain King tyres from Continental simply swallow up many bumps.
