M-500 ELECTRIC COMMUTER EBIKE

THE ULTIMATE URBAN CYCLING EXPERIENCE

M-Class isn’t a regular electric folding bike look alike. It offers everything an electric folding bike offers and more. That is why M-Class is selected as the best small-sized electric bike by Ebikereviewer in 2018.

M stands for Maximum performance at Mini dimensions with Max savings.

Space-starved in the office or home? Fret not. The M-Class is the best small electric bike for anyone who relishes the freedom of cruising when space is a luxury at home or in the office. It is a small size electric bike but suitable for people of all heights thanks to adjustable seat post and handlebar.

M-Class is not only an affordable and cheap electric bike but it is also the most powerful electric bike among all similar sized electric bikes (aka mostly folding electric bikes). You can check comparison of electric bikes for $3,500 or $4,000 here.

KEY FEATURES

500 Mid-Drive Motor

The mid-drive motor has a smooth riding character which won’t let you feel like you are riding an electric bike.
M-Class is equipped with 48V 500W mid-drive motor with 95 Nm torque.

Small Size

No matter you live in a small apartment, ride your bike to your office cubicle or want to carry your e-bike in RV, M-Class will be the perfect fit.

12Ah Battery

We use the best cell in our newest model which is Samsung. The batteries give you an estimated 45-65 miles per charge while maintaining a sleek profile.

Lightweight

One less thing to worry about especially if you’re living in an apartment building. Carrying your electric bike upstairs has never been easier.

PERFORMANCE

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!

 

RANGE

45-65+ miles per charge (estimated)

CHARGING TIME

4-6 hours

MAX SPEED

28 mph

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.
M-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, M-Class is also equipped with a throttle for those longer rides where you don’t want to pedal anymore.

URBAN COMMUTER

Cargo Capacity

Size of M-Class shouldn’t trick you. Optional front basket and the rear rack 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.

Lightweight

One big struggle for commuters riding electric bikeswas the weight. We hear people complaining about how heavy it is and how hard to carry especially if you live or work in a high rise building.
We’ve listened to your complaints and design all our electric commuter bikes in order to make it lightweight without sacrificing Ariel Rider Ebikes Quality. We’ve achieved it with new frame production techniques, using larger capacity battery cells but using fewer cells.
You will be surprised that you can lift and carry your e-bike with one hand without an issue.

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 and includes spacers for 22.2 and 25.4-millimeter stems. It offers an alloy construction for durability. You don’t need any tool to adjust the right position for your self.
You can also adjust the height of the seat within seconds without using any tool too.
For couples who want to share their electric commuter bikes, this feature will let them save a lot of time each time they change.

Suspension Seatpost

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.

Maintenance Free 7-Speed Gears

Least fun part owning an electric bike is the repairs or maintenance. We know the struggle, which is why we’ve designed our electric bike to require minimal maintenance.

Shimano 7-Speed Inner hub gears besides having many performance advantages such as reliability also come with durability advantages.

Not having derailleur and protecting gears from outside make them at least 3x more durable compared to normal gears. To learn more about the advantages of inner hub gears you can read this article.

Full Fenders

Not all of us are living in sunny SoCal. The M-Class comes equipped with front and rear full coverage fenders to keep you clean and dry if you happen to ride through puddles.

 

Details

We are confident to claim that M-Class is the easiest electric commuter bike to move around both when you are on it or pushing it.
From top to bottom M-Class is designed to make it extremely easy to carry.
A small but very useful handle under the saddle will help you to pull your electric bike out of tight spaces, without needing to right next to it.

SAFETY

LED Headlight

Be seen and be able to see in any road conditions. Our Spanninga LED headlights 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.

Rear Light

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

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.

Customization

Change Speed Limit

While we don’t fully recommend electric bike riders to lift up the speed limiter on their electric bikes, we also support adventures of any kind with good safety measures.

And this feature isn’t only for adrenaline junkies! We have lots of clients who actually lower the speed limit to make sure their loved ones can’t ride the electric bikes too fast.

Easy Diagnostics

We’ve programmed our ebikes in a way that every possible electronic malfunction (including an unplugged cable) has a specific error code on the screen. So when in the unlikely event of something going wrong, you’ll know exactly which part of your electric bike to look at!

It has been close to a month since I received my M class Ariel Ridder. I wanted to give it a little time and see what happens before I wrote my review. In order to get to know this bike completely, so that I can give an accurate review. With that said, I have not checked the claimed range of 60 miles using pedal assist and the 30 mile range using the throttle. I live in a somewhat hilly area and I just haven’t brought it to an area yet that would be a fair review based on the grade.
When I received it it was packaged well, although during shipping the bottom corner where the front forks rest, was damaged and the protective plastic piece was broken, but the forks were fine:)
Assembly was a breeze! I have been working on bikes for 40 plus years, and I’m thinking even if you don’t have much bike experience, you still would not have much difficulty with assembly.
👁 I actually went through and checked each nut and bolt to make sure that they were tight, but a funny thing happened, that could have resulted in serious injuries and damage. After like my third time out I heard some parts rattling and stopped and tried to locate the problem and found that the two bolts that hold the fasten the kickstand to the frame were about to fall off. I was going to deduct a Star, but desided to just mention it here. In hopes that other people will be informed. Anyhow it sits very close to the rear break disk and the spokes. There is a good chance that that could have been wedged between ether the spokes or the disk and both would not have good results. Lol so check that and pick up some lock tire and rub some on the threads. Lock washers wouldn’t be a bad idea ether!
I really think that should have been applied on all bolts during factory assembly. It’s a small but important detail. Ariel Rider is gonna be on top of it. If they read this 👀
But you should always check for yourself and get that done and off of your worries.
That’s actually the only gripe I had with the M Clas...

The only reason I didn't get one last year was the reviews about 3-speed gears! This year they've changed it to 7-speed gears and I couldn't be happier with my choice.
