Our Take

Bionx is usually thought of as an aftermarket retrofit kit, but many manufacturers, especially in Europe, incorporate Bionx into their electric bike models.

Evo Bicycles is the house brand of a North American bicycle distribution company. From the consumer's perspective, house brands often represent a greater value than name brands. Evo is no exception to this rule, and we're particularly excited about this top of the line electric model by Evo because of the quality components they have selected.

For instance, a 27-speed Shimano drivetrain is a mix of Acera and Deore components which are well suited for daily commutes.

Similarly, Tektro Auriga hydraulic disc brakes offer reliable stopping power even on steep descents.

But the star of the Evo HB1 'show' is the premium Bionx hub motor system, known as the D500. The D500 is the most powerful motor from Bionx, and offers important design features not seen on other hub motors. Like a composite (i.e. plastic), motor outer shell which keeps weight of the motor down while dissipating heat. The narrow, disc shaped profile of the D500 motor allows for full length spokes on the rear wheel, increasing wheel strength and shock absorption.

The Evo HB1 also features the largest battery offered by BionX - clocking in over 550 watt-hours for a commute distance of 50 mi to a charge, or more.

The aluminum frame is rigid and responsive, and ready for a rear rack or a child seat to increase your cargo capacity.
