What’s the difference between the 4 EVELO bike models?
The EVELO line consists of 4 different models – Aries, Aurora, Luna and Orion (click on any of these links for a comprehensive review). All of the electric bicycles in the line share similar characteristics, such as a highly efficient mid-drive motor, long-range batteries, NuVinci CVT drivetrain, rear racks and other accessories. However, there are a few subtle differences that we’d like to highlight.
|Super-Charged 500W Motor Upgrade||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes|
|Extended-Range 48V14.5Ah lithium battery that offers up to 60 miles per charge [add $500]||Yes||Yes||N/A||N/A|
|NuVinci Harmony Drivetrain Upgrade||No||No||Yes||Yes|
Step-Through Frame Design
The Aurora and Luna models offer a step-through frame design that makes it a bit easier to get on and off the bike.
This also makes it easier for riders between 5’1” and 5’6” to use these models. Adding an extended seatpost and/or stem riser makes these models perfect for riders above 5’6″ as well!
Cargo Carrying Capacity
All of our models offer rear racks that can be used with a rear-rack bag and panniers to carry cargo, groceries, a laptop and work supplies, spare batteries and so on.
However, if you think that you will need a lot of cargo-carrying capacity, the racks on the Luna and Orion models are better suited for larger and heavier panniers.
|61 pounds||57 pounds||60 pounds||58 pounds|
|* these weights do not include the removable battery; add 8-9 pounds for the battery.|
Components – Suspension and Brakes
All of the models offer front suspension. The Aries and Aurora have a longer-travel fork for more comfort on rougher roads and terrain, and the Aries model also includes an air-suspension rear shock for additional comfort.
The Aries and Aurora feature front and rear disc brakes for great stopping power in all conditions. The Orion is equipped with front and rear V-brakes, for excellent stopping power and to provide clearance for its full fenders. The Luna has a front V-brake and a rear roller brake for quiet, low-maintenance performance.
Due to the design of the bike, you’ll find that the Luna comes by default with a plusher, wider seat.
However, regardless of which model you choose, we are committed to ensuring that you are 100% satisfied with the seat provided. We realize that every customer’s needs and preferences are unique. As such, we offer the “Perfect Seat” Guarantee. If you prefer an alternate seat, just visit a local bike shop of your choice, try out and purchase the seat that you like the most, and we will reimburse you up to $40!
This is just one of the extra steps we take to ensure that every customer is 100% satisfied with their new EVELO Electric Bicycle.
