One of the joys of riding an e-bike for work, is that the humdrum journey on our grey suburban roads suddenly becomes exciting. This is perfectly demonstrated by the Alboin Curve which, at its heart, has the Bosch Performance motor; a powerful, high torque motor that was originally made for off-road bikes. This gives the bike an impressive amount of hill-climbing power for a feeling of freedom that is hard to beat, and which certainly beats being in a stuffy train carriage in the morning!
Sometimes the price tag of an electric bike can make you doubt whether you're getting value for money. When you get a bike this practical, it's a worry that you can allow to wither away. The lights, rear rack, kickstand, mudguard and internal battery make this bike a vehicle that's ready to ride whenever you need to. It is the type of bike that would be bought to do either commuting but would be a convenient 'pop to the shops' bike, and thanks to good component parts like 10-speed gears, Schwalbe Energizer tyres, and of course the Bosch motor, it can also tough it out as a trekking bike.
You may not have heard of Gepida before. Primarily the company's market is continental Europe, but over the years, the company has gained tremendous acclaim for the quality of its frame building, which is certainly something we take very seriously here at Energise E-bikes. A good quality frame reduces vibrations, which in turn increases power loss, and increases comfort - all the things that make an electric bike seriously satisfying to ride.
Summary: An excellent commuting e-bike with an excellent choice of components for reliability.
As with all our bikes, you can test-ride this model at your nearest showroom. Get in touch to reserve a time slot.

About the Gepida brand
This brand famously offers lifetime warranty on its bicycle frames, which goes to show you how seriously they take bike building.

It's been building electric bikes since 2008, which is where its focus is, and it's in this realm that the brand has caught the attention of a world audience. Gepida has focused on manufacturing in a way that benefits both rider and environment and has even created an eco-friendly painting system.
