It all began when my brother and I’ve visited Holland. Coming from an oil driven country, it amazed us how bicycles can actually be everyday commuters. No one actually needed cars there. That was when it dawned on us, we have to do something about this in our country! and 5 years later, we’re proud to say that we’re selling our ebikes in 26 countries some of which are the most oil driven economies of this planet.
Our goal was set, however, Dutch people are used to riding their ebikes in cold and rainy weather. Not every country is the same, climate-wise, infrastructure-wise and terrain-wise. It’s not an easy mission to convince people to ditch their bikes and cycle that hill up with 20mph on their conventional bicycles in San Francisco! With our engineering backgrounds and willingness to make a change in this world; our answer literally popped up in front of our very own eyes; Electric Bikes!
When we first decided to work on electric bikes, there were very few options in the market. We’ve visited about 50 different factories in many different countries; including but not limited to China. China is an amazing country which has the largest number of ebike usage in the world and a great infrastructure for it. However, ebikes there are not actually ebikes but more electric scooters, which defeated our goal. We wanted people to exercise when they want, we wanted them to feel that very same happiness when you first ride a bicycle as a kid!
With months of R&D, trials and fails, polls among our SUV-driving friends, we’ve managed to gather what’s missing on the current electric bikes that puts people off: STYLE!
Starting from there; our purpose with Ariel Rider Ebikes is to celebrate electric bikes as a mode of convenient transportation by creating models which contain better design and quality differentiating us from the rest. And we think we’re achieving this goal with our every new model year after year. As cities become more and more congested by the day, we strongly believe that electric bikes are an efficient and enjoyable venue through which busy professionals can release some stress as they travel to/from the office or just simply take a ride down the beach to release their daily stress.
Today we’re glad to say that things are changing across the globe! People are realizing that our habits are causing irreversible damage to our planet, and so they’ve started to search for renewable energies & eco-conscious transportation methods. And not only they’re looking for sustainable products, they also have the luxury to pick a product which meets their style and daily needs.
Today with distribution in 26 countries and one of the only ebike companies with “Green Business Seal”, we’re trying to make a difference in this world, while innovating new technologies and designing according to our riders’ needs.

From our skilled welders to stitchers for our leather accessories, attention to detail goes to every part of these ebikes.
Smart display isn’t only a speedometer. In addition to distance travelled and current speed, it also shows how much battery power left.
Our smart-screens doubles as a control panel where you can adjust pedal assist level, determine speed limit, turn the lights on and off and so on. Our advanced self diagnosis system will tell you if your ebike needs to be checked.
Large fonts and backlit screen makes sure the screen can be read under bright sun or dark at night.
EXTENDED BATTERY LIFE
This is where Ariel Rider sets apart from competitors. Our Samsung Li-Ion batteries can provide up to 576 Wh power which means long range and high power. All our batteries have state of art BMS (Battery management system) which protects battery against over or under-voltage, heating or other unexpected conditions. We know how critical batteries are and we handle them with highest level of attention. We also have Cell Balancing technology which is being used by electric cars.
UNPARALLED SAFETY MEASURES
Standard Avid BB7 disc brakes, high road handling tires, high-lux LED front lights, industry-first rear brake lights and so on.
Safety is our main concern, so we make sure you’re ready for unpleasant and unexpected situations arising on the road.
