Cannondale's updated Tesoro Neo X ebike (opens in new tab) is designed to handle the rigours of daily city use (opens in new tab), as well as the rough and tumble of mixed terrain and off-road trails (opens in new tab).
It's a bike brimming with features and added extras, notably – at least in the the context of Cannondale's refresh of its Synapse endurance platform (opens in new tab) – integrated lighting.
We'll run through the nods to practically before highlight the more rugged aspect, rounding things out with the pricing and availability.
Perhaps the most important aspect of an ebike is the battery, and the Tesoro Neo X certainly doesn't skimp in this department. Packing a massive 750 watt hours (Wh), Cannondale puts the projected range at sizeable 175km /108mi,
As mentioned, there is some tech shared with the new Synapse endurance bike. Although integrated front and rear lights that run off the main battery are nothing new for utility e-bikes, the Tesoro Neo X also benefits from the Varia radar system, which provides alerts on the traffic behind you.
With full length mudguards as standard, its under no illusions about the (at times) wet reality of daily use. A pannier rack comes ready assembled into the bike to boost your cargo carrying capacity from the get-go. For easy loading, the bikes come built with a stand and there's an integrated locking system for extra security.
