Cycling Weekly Verdict

The EBCO USR75 provides a quality package for e-bike adventures, with a more sporty feel than many e-bikes. The Bosch motor works well and is very easy to use, with a simple, intuitive controller that gives you all the information you need. Wheels and tyres are a good choice for an e-bike too, while there’s enough stopping power from the Shimano hydraulic disc brakes to deal with the bike’s performance.
