Power On Demand:
While designing new Ariel Rider Ebikes, we wanted make riding an electric bike a joy, without compromising on the feeling on cycling as in other electric bikes. That’s why we’ve developed -patent pending- POD system.
What it does is pretty amazing; it measures how much force you’re applying on the pedals, while checking the terrain conditions and rider’s weight and gives the optimal power you need for an unparalleled riding experience on your C Class city bike. With this new POD technology you’ll never have to compromise from the joy of riding a bicycle while cruising around town in ease. What else can you ask for on a city bike which can simply out do any cargo bike?

Bamboo Front Career for city bikes
When we were thinking about a front basket for C Class, we didn’t want to increase the weight of the bike and wanted to use a sustainable material. What a better material than bamboo which is a fast growing natural resource, whose rate of biomass generation is unsurpassed in the plant kingdom. We’ve coated these beautiful bamboo baskets with eco-friendly polish to make them weather-proof as well!
C Class front rack has two bungee ropes with different places to attach them in order to hold any size of your cargo load safe. We even crowned this rack with a cup holder for your favorite coffee for your morning commute with your electric bike. As we’ve mentioned, this electric city bike is designed for your city life needs by people who live in one of the busiest cities in the world.
While we don’t recommend to carry anything above 33 pounds(15kg), we’ve tested this frame for carrying loads up to 77lbs (35kg) on the front rack and it handled the task pretty well.
City life is like no other. Often times we have to pack our gym bag, work bag in the morning and carry them with us all day. Perhaps a quick stop at your local grocery store or even pizza place to grab your last minute dinner on your way home. Your electric city bike should have the space to carry all of your daily life necessities without the unappealing looks of a cargo bike.
While we were designing C Class, we shaped our design around real problems of real people.
C Class’ rear rack is embedded to the frame just as front rack. So you don’t have to worry about how heavy your baggage is. This uni-design frame allows riders to carry up to 297lbs/135kg rear loads, which makes it a hardworking cargo bike without compromising from it’s sleek city bike looks. Snap-on accessories such as rear seat, rear rack bags and rear child seat are available.
Ariel Rider Plush Commuter
After many years of research among our users, we were finally able to gather what’s actually needed to make a commute better than ever; a great saddle! The requirements we gathered from seasoned bike commuters were mind blowing; wide enough to sit comfortably but not too wide to effect pedaling, sweat free, weather resistant, elegant and sleek enough to impress everyone… On all of our Comfort Class, you’ll find Ariel Rider Plush Commuter Saddles standard.
The saddles with spring suspension are made for long distance riding, giving more comfort to the user. The springs works great in filtering the heavy shocks and vibrations, without losing the advantage of having a harder saddle top.
Ariel Rider Plus Grips for C Class
Riding a bicycle is more than just pedaling, it’s the whole experience. How the saddle feels when you sit on it, how the frame finishing feels when you touch it, how easy it is to read the screen and so on.
When it comes to handlebar-grips, it’s the single most used part of a bike. Your hands are constantly on them in order to direct your C Class properly. They shouldn’t be slippery, but also they shouldn’t allow your hands to glide on it. It should be sweat-resistant and soft enough to make holding them a joy! That’s why we’ve designed these custom plush handlebar grips. They’re everything you’re asking for and more.
The wave-shaped frame is inspired by nature itself on C Class. We wanted to create a frame which will fit everyone’s daily needs in the utmost style and comfort. The position of the handlebar, saddle and the pedals will determine if you will sit upright like royalty.
The upright position is the best for city commuting for several reasons, it allows you to ride your city bike fast enough (with the help of our high performance motor), while being able to effortlessly reach your custom cup holder to get a sip of your coffee.
