We love these bikes! We bought two M-class as we can get them in our pick up with the shell on the bed. They are light enough for my wife to lift and they hold up my big guy frame nicely. In two weeks we have 30+ miles on them. And it has been hot and humid here. We are trying to get out on them every chance we get.The mid drive eats up our hills. So glad we chose Ariel Rider.
I In a nutshell, the mirror looks like it will be easy to use, improve safety when biking on the highway, and took quite a while to get here from Oregon by USPS. On 8/4/1, Ariel Rider requested I write a review since they had fulfilled my order “14 days ago.” It arrived today, 8/16/19 in my USPS mailbox. The mirror is curved to widen the view, and rotates in two planes. The view is sharp and the price is fantastic ($5.49 with free shipping). A great deal IMHO!
Delivered 2 weeks after ordered. Arrived in good condition due to being packaged well. I would give the assembly instructions 3 stars. Great ebike for the money!
So after 2 weeks using my first e-bike, I can say it seems well built and I'm happy with my choice. There were a couple of very minor issues, resolved with prompt response. Thanks to Ariel for a well designed bike with good power response and range. Have Fun Out There
Great bike! I love riding my M-class! Also love the front basket.
Great bike! I love my M-class!
We are really happy with our purchase of two M class Ebikes. They are a lot of fun and handle our hills here with ease.
You forget how much fun it is to ride a bike as you get older, but these bikes really do make you feel like a kid again! We bought the C-class because we were looking for a comfortable ride for my wife. This bike is so much fun to ride, and it is a much more smooth and comfortable ride than the M-class I got myself. It’s not quite a nimble as the M-class because it’s larger and heavier, but the bigger wheels and front suspension really smooth out any bumps. I feel like it’s a great compromise between the quick little M-class and the bigger cruiser bikes like the W-class and N-class. And have I mentioned how fun these are?!? I’m so glad we chose Ariel Rider bikes! They makes great bikes for unbelievable prices, and their customer service is amazing!
Absolutely happy with the bike, zooming along Cambridge streets, fast, nimble, comfortable. I have written a blog post about the bike at https://glebbahmutov.com/blog/ariel-rider-ebike/
I am pleased to be writing this review as perhaps the first (and only?) Ariel Rider M-Class bike in Alaska. I ordered this bike a couple months ago and now have logged over 400 miles. I arrived at this bike after fairly-extensive online research and the limited brick-and- mortar availability of electric bike shops in Alaska. I was nervous about purchasing an online bike without having the chance to test ride it, but the M-Class emerged in my research as ‘the bike’ that met all my criteria: mid-drive motor, hydraulic brakes, range, power, and price point. Above all, power was a top requirement as I live at the top of 3-mile long hill with a 12% grade. In short, the Ariel Rider delivers. In my experience, the bike lives up to all of the positive customer reviews and has greatly exceeded my expectations. Pre M-class I was an occasional bike rider with ‘the big hill’ being a time and effort barrier to everyday commuting. This bike tackles hills with ease and is so much fun to ride. I now only occasionally drive my car to work (i.e. 4 days out of 45) and it has reduced my commute time by almost 60%. In Alaska, we do not currently have e-bike regulations so I was able to remove the speed control using the provided jail break code. I was glad for this option this since I was consistently riding against the upper speed threshold. With a mid-level assist (3-4), I generally now ride 22-24 mph on the flats with ease and 11-12 mph on the 12% incline. This bike climbs so effortless that I do not have a need for the upper power assist levels (5-6) or the throttle (though this is a nice feature). The throttle was used only once when my husband and I rode tandem to a potluck (case of beer on the front rack and crockpot on the rear). At 350 lb, the throttle was able to carry us up a 9% incline and reach 18 mph on the flats without ever pedaling. In my situation, battery life delivers about 36 miles factoring in the uphill climb and mid-assist level. My round-trip commute is abou...
This bike is fantastic. I can't believe how smooth all the transitions are! I love having 6 levels of assist to choose from, as opposed to only 3 on my last e-bike. I got caught in a rainstorm a few miles from home. I ramped everything up, and managed to get home super fast! I tackled a pretty steep hill and tested to see if I could maintain top speed. Amazing! I was going 20mph all the way up! The mid drive motor makes riding so pleasurable, even for my arthritic body!
A couple of wishes.... Written manual. I don't have a lot of history with bikes, so assembly took quite a long time. I didn't know to check for the video until I was done, and had to go back and make some small changes. Nothing was too difficult, I just lacked the confidence with only vague instructions. Also, I am far sighted, so wish the display was a bit bigger.
The logo is great. I wish the panniers weren't so expensive, as I would love to advertise the name of the bike while riding around. There are not a lot of ebikes around here, so people tend to notice.
I love this bike, though. Exceptionally well designed and a huge confidence booster. I can go anywhere!
I love my new bike! We also got my wife a C-class model, which we also really like. While hers is definitely a more comfortable ride, the M-class is quick, light and nimble. It’s everything I was looking for in my bike, and I look for every reason to go out riding. There were some issues with shipping damage, but Ariel Rider’s customer service has been phenomenal in making things right and making sure we’re happy customers.
The bike is a very good value. Arrived well packed. Had problem with stem spacers, but Ariel sent me a new set. An issued with the front wheel fitting into fork which I resolved. An early issue with tracking was resolved. Ariel made adjustments to the cost of bike which further certified my confidence in their customer service and the product

This e-bike exceeded my expectations. The design was well thought out and it is so easy to use. Love it and will be looking to purchase another for a family member.
Rack was ordered separately, but came installed on new ebike. A nice surprise. Have not tested its capacity yet. Install looks solid and capable of handling a fair amount of weight.
This is my first ebike. I researched a lot of companies and decided on this one. I was not disappointed. The bike arrived extremely well packaged and protected against any damage. While the assembly was (semi-)intuitive, pictures would be helpful instead of just written directions. With minimal tweaking, the bike is complete. The C class is very well balanced and easy to ride. The electric motor made riding hills easy to crest. I highly recommend this company.
I had my bike for some months now, and have ridden it about 170 miles. I really love the bike, but there are some issue.
First, I would not plan on assembling this bike unless you are a real bike gear-head. I bought two of them and had all kinds of issues with assembly. I contacted Ariel and they were very prompt in their replies, but even after their advice there were too many issues with assembly for me to get it done--and there were different issues with each bike. No way, no how should you plan on the 15 minute assembly that they tout on their website. I ultimately had a mobile bike mechanic come to my house and he took about an hour to assemble each bike. Once assembled, the bikes work great.
The power assist, as advertised, has a maximum speed of about 20 MPH, but I have found that it is best for starting off, when it gives you a lot of power, and going up hills, where it provides a lot of assist. On a slight incline I have found that it kicks in when I am at 14 MPH or under, and boosts me up to about 16MPH, when it turns off. It does not keep you going at 20 MPH, although on rare occasions (which I can't figure out) it boosts me up to 19 or so MPH. The throttle helps sometimes when the bike does not seem to want to assist, but you should not plan on any assist when you are going 15MPH or above, even with the throttle (although sometimes it works at those speeds, just rarely).
The fit, finish, and parts are appropriate for the price of the bikes. I also own a Raleigh electric mountain bike, which cost more than double the price of this bike, and the difference in parts and fit is noticeable, but that is not a surprise, as it is much more expensive bike.
The battery is a beast. I have ridden 37 miles and have not come close to using half of the battery. I believe them when they say it can take you 80 miles.
This bike represents a really great value. This dual motor version pulls incredibly strong and the battery life is good. When you consider the quality of the components, the performance, and the customer support I don’t know why you’d buy anywhere else.
This bike is powerful and stunning to look at. We get stares riding down the street. The engine is quiet, the controls are intuitive and the quality is very high for the money. We got 2 and absolutely love them. Customer service has been excellent as well.
I bought this bike as a commuter bike to ride to work and back. I have a hill on either end of my commute, which made me reluctant to ride my normal bike to work, but with my new e-bike commuting is a breeze. This bike is really fun to ride, the controls are easy to use, the motor is speedy, it helps me get up hills like a champ. I have zero complaints. It made me much more confident to ride my bike, which means I'm riding my bike more. I am 5'2 and haven't had any issues with the seat height (but I have long-ish legs for my height). Some things to think about: The bike is really heavy and hard to maneuver when you are not riding it. If you are planning on carrying it up stairs into your home for storage, this could be challenging. Also the shifter is a little different than normal. You DON'T peddle when shifting, which is the exac
