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's why Ariel Rider's M-Class was selected as the best small-sized electric bike by eBikeReviewer.com in 2018.

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

Starved for space at your office or home? Fret not. The M-Class is the best electric commuter bike for anyone who relishes the freedom of cruising when space is at a premium. It is a smaller ebike, but perfectly suitable for people of all heights thanks to an adjustable seat post
and handlebar.

M-Class is not only affordable, but it is the most powerful among all such compact eBikes (i.e. mostly folding electric bikes). Check out this objective comparison of electric bikes costing up
to $4,000.

KEY FEATURES

500 Mid-Drive Motor

The mid-drive motor offers a smooth riding experience - you won't feel like you're riding an electric bike at all. M-Class is equipped with a 48V 500W mid-drive motor with a commanding 95 Nm of torque on-demand.

Small Size

Even if you live in a tiny apartment, work in a cubicle, or just want to take your eBike along in an RV, you'll discover that M-Class is the perfect fit.

12Ah Battery

We utilize only the finest batteries in the industry – Samsung. This powerful yet compact battery gives you an estimated 45-65 miles per charge while maintaining a sleek profile.

Lightweight

One less thing to worry about, especially if you live in an apartment building. Carrying your electric bike up stairs has never been easier

PERFORMANCE

Go The Extra Mile

Most city commutes are less than 5 miles. We’ve equipped our smallest electric bike with a high-capacity 12Ah Samsung battery pack. It's simple to remove, so you can charge it effortlessly at home, the office, or anywhere. This compact battery will give you a truly awesome range of 45 to 65 miles per charge. You'll cruise for days and days without charging it.

From the beginning of Ariel Rider Ebikes, our pledge has been to provide the highest quality with the greatest design. We will never cut corners on the most important components of your electric bike. This battery has superior capacity and that extra range for you when you need it most. And it only weighs around 7 lbs!

RANGE

45-65+ miles per charge (estimated)

CHARGING TIME

4-6 hours

MAX SPEED

Class 2 Ebike

Astonishing Torque

The mid-drive motor offers a smooth riding experience - you won't feel like you're riding an
electric bike at all.
DAPU mid-drive motors provide one of the highest torque in the market.
M-Class is equipped with the 48V 500W Dapu mid-drive motor sporting 95 Nm torque. Check
out a completely independent comparison here.

Key Points:

  • The mid-drive motor increases the torque applied to your rear wheel. This translates to remarkably more power, especially when riding uphill. Compared to hub motors, it's a breeze.
  • Mid-drive motors are very energy-efficient compared to hub motors, so you’ll enjoy far longer-range with a smaller battery.
  • A Mid-Drive motor is in the middle of the bike, where the crank is located. This way weight is uniformly distributed and the 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

Don't let the size of our M-Class fool you. This bike is an urban workhorse. With the rear rack and optional front basket, you can carry groceries, your gym bag, or even a child all at the same time!

Lightweight

One huge problem we hear about from commuters is weight. Riders are concerned that bikes
are too heavy, especially if they live or work in high rise buildings.
We achieve this with advanced frame production techniques, combined with a higher capacity
battery using fewer cells.
It'll surprise you how genuinely easy it is to lift and carry your M-Class with only hand.

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 boasts an alloy for enhanced durability. The seat height also adjusts easily in mere seconds. And did we mention - no tools required! For couples who want to share their Ebike, these smart features make quick work of swapping out.

Suspension Seatpost

No city street is a smooth, well-maintained Formula One racetrack. Our adjustable suspension seat post adds yet another level of comfort to your commute, smoothing out those rough roads. At the end of the day, M-Class details like this transform your commute into a gentle breeze.

Maintenance Free 7-Speed Gears

Repairs and maintenance are no fun. We're riders just like you, and we know the struggle. This is why we’ve designed all our Ebikes to require minimal maintenance.
The M-Class's Shimano 7-Speed Inner hub gears are extremely durable and highly reliable.
The gears are all hidden inside, protected from the elements and physical damage. Having no external derailleur makes them 3x more durable than traditional gears. Learn more about
inner hub gears
here.

Full Fenders

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

 

Details

We are confident that Ariel Rider's M-Class is the easiest ebike to move about on, either riding it or walking it.
From top to bottom M-Class is designed to be extremely easy to carry. An unobtrusive, but very useful handle under the saddle will help you pull your electric bike out of tight spaces, without needing to be right next to it.

SAFETY

LED Headlight

The Spanninga LED motorcycle-style headlight ensures that you can see and be seen at nights in any road conditions.

This LED headlight is powered by the main battery of the ebike.

Hydraulic Disc Brakes

Tektro Hydraulic Disc Brakes are designed to provide the best brake performance for the fastest ebikes. Be confident of their performance regardless of your speed or weight, and especially going downhill.

Rear Light

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

These LED lights are powered by the main battery of the ebike.

Reflective Sidewalls

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

TECHNOLOGY

Everything Under Control

The Ariel Rider ebike's LCD display provides riders with all the information they need during a ride.
Allows for customization of many different specs, including setting the speed limit.

The Display is securely mounted to the handlebars, and the viewing angle can be adjusted to accommodate different-sized riders.

 

Speedometer

Large speed display (can change between mph and kmh)

Battery Life

Never run out of battery unexpectedly.

Pedal Assist Level

Pick from 0 to 6, whichever PAS level suits you best.

Trip Odometer

Especially useful on those long weekend adventure rides.

Odometer

Always exhilarating to see how many miles you ditched your car.

Customization

Our smart screens allow riders to change the speed/odometer, settings, screen backlight, speed limit etc.

Change Speed Limit

While we don’t necessarily recommend ebike riders raise the speed limit on their electric bikes, we do 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

Ariel Riders has programmed all our eBikes so that every possible electronic malfunction (even simple unplugged cables) displays a specific diagnostic error code on the screen. So in the unlikely event of something going wrong, you’ll know exactly which part of your electric bike to look at!

I really like it

Close between 4 and 5 stars, but a few things could be better. I do like it, though. I wanted somethings that felt like a regular bike, but helped me with the hilly terrain I moved to. I'm glad I waited for the 7 speed version. When I lived in "Flatlandia," I rode a 21-speed hybrid, so the feel of the gears and the general style of the bike is similar. The battery lasts practically forever, since I generally ride with the power assist at 0 or 1, and rarely need to go higher than 2 or 3 even on hills that used to be far beyond my ability. I tried the scooter option just once, to see what it felt like, but haven't ridden far that way. It's handy to have, though. The assembly process was more difficult than advertised, in part because in transit loose parts that may have once been packaged or tied together had come apart and migrated to the bottom of the box. It wasn't plain what was what. I would have appreciated better written directions, as the video was awkward to consult multiple times as we tried to figure out all the details. I would have preferred that the assist level started out at 0 or 1 when turned on, rather than 3. Or if there could be some way for the owner to change the default? 3 is way too much power for my driveway, and feels almost dangerous if I try to take off and don't remember to turn the power level down first. I also find the battery very difficult to remove and replace. I thought it might loosen up after a few tries, but it is still really difficult. I always tug and tug, find myself thinking maybe I haven't actually unlocked it, check that it is unlocked, try some more, start to despair, but finally it gives way. Putting it back on, it is also difficult to get it all the way to where it clicks and the key will turn in the lock. I realize it needs to be a strong connection, but really?

M-Class Urban Electric Bike - Happy Camper!

Ordered the bike after reviewing the YouTube videos. I must say everything was just as they advertised. The shipping was quick, the bike arrived very well packed, assembly was easy. The bike is great. It is a very good combination of features, power, and range. Service after the sale was excellent! Really happy with the value and the purchase.

Game Changer

This bike is giving me back the freedom of biking again. As an early senior citizen I was lacking in the power to get those hills done...now, it’s a snap. A 24 mule bike ride is not wearing me out! A hick up noted by my reputable bike shop who put the bike together for me reported the hydraulic brakes were put on backwards ( note to quality control) which cost me extra $40. Performs perfectly!

S.T.

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...
