Promotional feature with Ride1UP (opens in new tab)
Ride1UP is giving away a Roadster V2 electric bike (opens in new tab) for one US-based reader in our competition - a $1045 value!
The Ride1UP Roadster V2 is a pared down, minimalist e-bike with an alloy frame, a 350 watt, 40Nm rear hub motor and its 7Ah battery concealed in its down tube, giving you a range of up to 30 miles and a top speed of up to 24mph.
Pedal power comes via a 64x20 tooth single speed belt drive, for clean, low maintenance riding. Taking the Roadster V2 up stairs is a breeze with its low 33lb weight and it charges up in two to four hours, so it’s the ideal companion for life around town.
The Roadster V2 is one of San Diego, California-based Ride1UP’s increasingly wide range of electric bikes, designed for road and off-road use and which it sells direct from its site, with free shipping in the 48 contiguous states.
Founded by Davis, California native Kevin Dugger, who hand-built his first electric bike five years ago, Ride1UP offers well built, quality electric bikes at low prices. Its direct-to-consumer business model is super-lean, so Ride1Up can comfortably undercut the name brand competition yet offer the same quality and components.
With their low running costs, Ride1UP aims to increase the take-up of electric bikes for trips around town, replacing the congestion and pollution of our automobile-dominated urban lifestyle. So Ride1UP makes affordable e-bikes that are rugged and dependable, with powerful motors for easy load carrying and good range to get you through your day, many with fenders, racks and lights for all-weather all-round usability.
You can learn more about Ride1UP (opens in new tab), its range and its vision on its site and order direct for delivery in the US, Canada and Mexico and if you’re in the US you can enter our giveaway below. One lucky winner will receive a Roadster V2!Giveaway on Gleam.io
