Frey Evolve Neo e-bikes launch with 40 kph top speed and 100 km range
Frey Bike has launched a new line of e-mountain bikes named Evolve. Two models have been released, the Evolve Neo and the Evolve Neo Pro. The company said the bikes aim to provide high-end features with a “great benefit-cost ratio”. The electric mountain bikes feature a 250 W Bafang M510 motor, which is relatively lightweight and waterproof.
The motor provides a peak power of 580 W, a top speed of 40 kph (~25 mph) and up to 95 Nm of torque. You can pair your smartphone to the Frey Neo via Bluetooth to view the motor’s performance and adjust various settings in the Bafang Go app. A 672 Wh battery provides up to 100 km (~62 miles) range. Plus, both models have full suspension, with 150 mm front and 160 mm rear travel, for a more comfortable ride. Each bike has a 6061 aluminum frame, weighs around 57 lbs (~27 kg) and can handle payloads up to 264 lbs (~120 kg).
Differences between the two models include the brakes and drivetrain, with the entry-level model having Tektro HD brakes and an SRAM X5 9S powertrain, compared to the Magura MT5e 4-piston brakes and SRAM NX 11S used in the Pro model. The Evolve Neo e-bikes start from US$2,980, with the top-spec model costing US$3,580. The bicycles are available in three sizes and three colors, Mako Blue, Water White and Sunrise Pink.
