Coboc ONE eCycle review

Probably one of the coolest and most fun-to-ride electric bikes out there

Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Coboc ONE eCycle suffered in the hills (where the rider really need to push a bit - particularly in the saddle) and when the battery is low the performance is less good, but overall this is a great bike, super fun to ride, stable in the descents and good looking for an electric bike. One of the best electric bikes out there if you like the fixie style and looks.

When I walked into the Just eBike shop in Notting Hill, the Coboc One eCycle was the first thing I noticed. I was surrounded by commuting bikes with racks on their back and massive batteries mounted on the down tube, while folding electric bikes completed the picture. However, the dark and slim figure of the Coboc, a mix of clean and simple lines, shadowed all the other models displayed. She's a true femme fatale.
