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!

Review of 2 M-Class Ariel Riders

We’ve had the bikes about two weeks now and overall I’d say we are pretty happy. First the negatives. The assembly instructions are very outdated, but I was able to assemble both bikes without much trouble. Ariel Rider needs to improve the shipping protection around the front forks, although mine were not damaged the protection was “used” up. The forks had penetrated the styrofoam and were working on going through the cardboard container. One seat was damaged in shipping, but was replaced very quickly. One of the bikes’ front brake disc was bent, but it too was replaced fairly quickly. Positives. The bikes have worked properly since receiving them. I have had to retighten the spokes in the rear tire of my bike from going over some pretty bad bumps on my first long ride, but they have not gotten loose again. The battery life is great. The paint jobs are excellent. As I stated in the beginning, overall we are pretty happy with the purchase and I would recommend Ariel Rider bikes to a friend.

Great bike! I love riding my M-class! Also love the front basket.

M-Class Conquers Alaska's Long, Steep Hills

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...

Soooo worth it!!

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!

So much fun!

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.
