Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Prolog is a far diversion from the utilitarian, car-replacing, kid-carting, grocery-getters out there. Instead, the Prolog may just be the sleekest, stealthiest ebike on the market today. It can serve as a high-end commuter or a lightweight, capable hybrid to get you from Point A to Point B in style. But it does lack in utility and comes with a lofty pricetag.
