C-Class Key Features

4 years after it's launch, it was time for something more than just a face-lift. So we decided to redesign the whole C-Class from scratch. But only this time, we developed the new C-Class from the feedback of our riders on "What would make an ebike a great commuter?".

500W Dapu Mid-Drive Motor

This incredible motor has proven the test of time in our M-Class previously. With low noise levels and smooth acceleration -even when climbing uphill- it's the best mid-drive motor money can buy.

48V 12Ah Lithium-Ion Battery with Samsung 35E Cells

Our 48V 12Ah (576Wh) batteries give you an estimated 35-65+ miles per charge while maintaining a sleek profile all thanks to the energy efficient mid-drive motor.


NEXUS 8 Speed Internal Geared Hubs

Giving you an exceptionally wider range of gearing, meaning you can shift into lowest gear to climb uphill or shift into the highest gear and still maintain pedal authority at top speed.

More info on Nexus 8-speed internal geared hubs.

Tektro Hydraulic Disc Brakes

Tektro Hydraulic Disc Brake is designed to provide best brake performance for fastest electric bikes. You can always trust brake performance regardless of your speed, weight and even go downhill.

Suntour Suspension Fork

For that extra comfort you've been asking for in a city commuter!

LED Front and Rear Lights

Safety is a major concern for us. That’s why all W-Class Electric bikes are equipped with LED rear and front lights.


Reflective Side Walls

We want to make sure our riders are visible at all times from all angles.
That’s why our tires all have reflective sides.

Suspension Seat Post

Not every city has roads to host formula 1. With the help of adjustable suspension seat post, we’ve added another layer of comfort to your commute.
At the end of the day, it’s details like this which will make your commute a breeze.

Easy-Adjustable Stem

The versatile and effective Promax Adjustable Handlebar Stem offers just the right fit. The handlebar stem is adjustable from 90 to 160 degrees You don’t need any tool to adjust the right position for your self.

Built for Your Family

The all new C-Class is built from ground-up for your needs in mind. And that includes a rear rack that's capable to carry your kids.

Low Mid-Bar

One of the issues we've heard from our clients was not being able to get on/off the other bikes as the mid-bars are usually higher.
On C-Class we've lowered that part as much as possible, allowing and easy get on/off the bike.


Please note that the frame lock in the photos isn't included in the bike.

Standard & Capable

Be it your kid or your groceries, the standard rear rack on Ariel Rider C-class can carry it all!

Go The Extra Mile

Most city commuters need an electric bike for commuting less than 5 miles. But since the battery and electric motor technologies are our wheelhouse, we’ve equipped this small electric bike with a 12Ah battery pack, which you can easily remove from the frame and charge it at home upstairs. This small battery will give you a range of 45 to 65 miles per charge allowing you to go without charging it for days and days.

Since our promise from the beginning of Ariel Rider Ebikes is to provide the best quality with great design, we didn’t want to cut corners on the most important part of your electric bike. This battery pack has the capacity and range for you when you need it. And it only weighs about 7 lbs!

Class 2 Ebike

Astonishing Torque

The mid-drive motor has a smooth riding character which won’t let you feel like you are riding an electric bike.
DAPU mid-drive motor provides one of the highest torque in the market. To check comparison you can check test done by an independent testing company here.
C-Class is equipped with the 48V 500W mid-drive motor with 95 Nm torque.

Key Points:

  • The mid-drive motor increases the torque applied on your rear wheel, so you’ll have a better traction especially when riding uphill. Compared to hub motors, it’ll be a breeze.

  • Mid-drive motors are very energy efficient compared to hub motors, so you’ll have a longer range with a smaller battery pack,

  • Mid Drive motor is located at the middle of the electric bike, where the crank is.
    This way weight is uniformly distributed and center of gravity doesn’t change.

  • Unlike other mid-drive options in the market, C-Class is also equipped with a throttle for those longer rides where you don’t want to pedal anymore.

Cargo Capacity

With standard rear rack and options, C-Class is designed to meet your needs to use a bicycle as a transportation vehicle.
You can carry grocery bags, gym bags and your kid at the same time.



LED Headlight & Rear Lights

Be seen and be able to see in any road conditions. Our Spanninga LED headlights & rearlights are integrated to the electric bike’s main battery supply.

Hydraulic Disc Brakes

Tektro Hydraulic Disc Brake is designed to provide best brake performance for fastest electric bikes. You can always trust brake performance regardless of your speed, weight and even go downhill.

Reflective Sidewalls

We want to make sure our riders are visible at all times from all angles.
That’s why our tires all have reflective sides.


Everything Under Control

The Ariel Rider Electric Bikes’ LCD display provides riders with all the information they need during a ride.
Allows customization of many different specs, including speed limit.
It’s securely mounted directly to the handlebars and the display angle can be adjusted to accommodate different sized riders


Large speed display (can change between mph and kmh)

Battery Life

Never run out of battery unexpectedly

Pedal Assist Level (PAS)

Pick from 0 to 6, whichever PAS level suits your road conditions best.

Trip Odometer

Especially useful on those long rides.


Always fulfilling to see how many miles you ditched your car for an electric bike.


Our smart screens allow riders to change the speed/odometer settings, backlight intensity, speed limit, auto-off timer, etc.

Change Speed Limit

While we don't fully recommend lifting up the speed limiter on electric bikes, we also support adventures of any kind with some good safety measures taken.

And this feature isn't only to lift off the speed limit. You can actually lower the speed limit, so that you won't have to worry about your kid's safety when they borrow your ebike.

Easy Diagnostics

We've programmed our ebikes in a way that, every possible electronic malfunction (including an unplugged cable) has a specific error code.

So in the unlikely event of your ebike malfunctioning, you'll know exactly which part of your ebike to look at to first.

Incredible e-bikes

Arrival on schedule. Packaging so good it took longer to unpack than assemble the bikes. Both in perfect condition. Missing 1 black bolt and washer that holds the rear caliper in place. Double checked packaging...just not there but added washers to an extra chrome bolt and all is well. I a 75 year old with 6 broken vertebrae, currently passing a kidney stone and it took 35 minutes to assemble each. No expertise necessary...never looked at the instructions until I was finished. Ride is great. Very happy customer. Paul

Class C

I was pleasantly surprised at the weight and quality of the bike. We could of used some instructions during assembly. It took me about an hour to get everything done. When I rode the bike for the first time, you can feel the solid build of the bike, and all equipment functioned properly. Did encounter one issue with the LCD DISPLAY, and at the moment we are trying to resolve the matter. Also, whatever issue I encounterd, the team at Ariel Rider have been a great help. Nice Bike 👍

Tall Person bike... The Step through was not low enough for me.

The height requirement on the bike before purchase was 5'2" afterwards it was raised. I am 5'4.5" and the bike was way too tall for me (the height of the average American female is 5'4"). This is a tall person's bike. One would need to be significantly taller than me to comfortably get on this bike. I had to stand on a curb. The step through was also quite high and with my arthritis issues. It was quite impossible for me to ride. I traded my husband the bike as he got a class D limited. That is working well for me other than the guilt that I took his bike. He says that he does not mind the C class. We are still in the honeymoon phases of the bikes. The only complaint that I have heard from my husband is that the handle bars have issues but he will not be able to switch the handle bars without also switching out the from forks. They do not have a screw to clamp down the handle bar. We did buy an extra battery for this bike to improve the range.

No manual

Everything shipped well, but I am very disappointed that the box did not include instructions. I tried to look them up online but they differ from the bike I recieved.

Everything we expected!

We had watched the reviews and had high expectations. The bike has met or exceeded those thoughts. The only negative-- there should be assembly instructions included.
