Electric Bike Action Bike Test: Cannondale Moterra NEO
When we started out with the Moterra, we were not convinced we would enjoy it, as it didn’t shout out its credentials to us straight away just by looking at it. However, after continued riding and really great experiences in some difficult trail conditions, we started to explore the limits, which we could
In the end, we are totally in love with this bike. There are few bikes that leave us with that feeling and few bikes that we are genuinely sad to see go home. The Moterra 1 Neo is not cheap, but you get a lot of bike for your money and really good reliability. We only cleaned the bike and lubed the chain during our time on it. The Bosch Gen 4 is really good and smoother than previous versions, and the battery capacity is enough that you can go hard in turbo mode for 2–3 hours with no problems.
If you are looking for a serious-quality e-bike with reliability and well-tuned geometry that lets you go fast with
good motor power, then this e-bike is for you.
