M-Class isn’t a regular electric folding bike look alike. It offers everything an electric folding bike offers and more. That is why M-Class is selected as the best small-sized electric bike by Ebikereviewer in 2018. 

M stands for Maximum performance at Mini dimensions with Max savings. 

Space-starved in the office or home? Fret not. The M-Class is the best small electric bike for anyone who relishes the freedom of cruising when space is a luxury at home or in the office. It is a small size electric bike but suitable for people of all heights thanks to adjustable seat post and handlebar. 

M-Class is not only an affordable and cheap electric bike but it is also the most powerful electric bike among all similar sized electric bikes (aka mostly folding electric bikes). You can check comparison of electric bikes for $3,500 or $4,000 here.

M-Class Electric Commuter Bike removable battery

Go The Extra Mile

Most city commuters need an electric bike for commuting less than 5 miles. But since the battery and electric motor technologies are our wheelhouse, we’ve equipped this small electric bike with a 12Ah battery pack, which you can easily remove from the frame and charge it at home upstairs. This small battery will give you a range of 45 to 65 miles per charge allowing you to go without charging it for days and days.

Since our promise from the beginning of Ariel Rider Ebikes is to provide the best quality with great design, we didn’t want to cut corners on the most important part of your electric bike. This battery pack has the capacity and range for you when you need it. And it only weighs about 7 lbs!

M-Class Electric Commuter Bike dapu mid drive motor

Astonishing Torque

The mid-drive motor has a smooth riding character which won’t let you feel like you are riding an electric bike.
DAPU mid-drive motor provides one of the highest torque in the market. To check comparison you can check test done by an independent testing company here.
M-Class is equipped with the 48V 500W mid-drive motor with 95 Nm torque.

Key Points:

  • The mid-drive motor increases the torque applied on your rear wheel, so you’ll have a better traction especially when riding uphill. Compared to hub motors, it’ll be a breeze.
  • Mid-drive motors are very energy efficient compared to hub motors, so you’ll have a longer range with a smaller battery pack,
  • Mid Drive motor is located at the middle of the electric bike, where the crank is.
    This way weight is uniformly distributed and center of gravity doesn’t change.
  • Unlike other mid-drive options in the market, M-Class is also equipped with a throttle for those longer rides where you don’t want to pedal anymore.

Which carrier are you shipping the electric bikes with?2018-08-17T00:46:37+00:00

Electric Bikes are sent with FedEx.

Once I receive my electric bike, how difficult it is to assemble?2018-08-17T00:57:16+00:00

We’ve designed all of our electric bikes in a way that, even the most inexperienced clients can easily assemble them.
All Ariel Rider Electric Bikes comes 90%-95% assembled. In most cases, you’ll just need to screw in the front fender and front tire with a quick release.

We’ve helped some customers with video chat apps.
We’re here to help you!

Where can I find the owners manual?2018-08-17T01:02:33+00:00

You can download Ariel Rider Electric Bikes User Manual from here.

Can I put a rear rack on your Electric Bikes?2018-08-17T01:25:29+00:00

On M-Class and W-Class (models after August 2018), you can easily attach rear racks. Both models have rear racks offered in our accessories page.
While C-Class already comes with a rear rack as a part of its frame design, N-Class can fit racks that connect directly to the seat post are the easiest to install, but do not have the payload of some full featured rear racks.

Can I ride an ebike without using the motor?2018-08-17T02:12:17+00:00

All of our electric bikes can be pedaled just like a traditional bike without any motor assistance.

Can I upgrade my battery?2018-08-17T01:36:38+00:00

We currently do not offer any battery upgrades for our bikes.
While we get inquiries about larger capacity batteries, the reality is the longest commute one needs to make with an electric bike is usually under 10miles.
Which means there’s no need for a larger capacity battery. They’re heavy and expensive at this point.
But if you’re still looking for a longer commute option, you can always get an additional battery and double up your range.

NOTE: We do not recommend using any other aftermarket batteries. Usage of these batteries will void your warranty terms.

Can the bikes go on airplanes?2018-08-17T01:57:06+00:00

Sadly, no!
However, if you need to ship your ebike to another location, just send us an email.
Since we do thousands of electric bike shipments a year, we do have great rates. We’d be more than happy to assist you.

Do I have to pedal the ebike?2018-08-17T02:10:30+00:00

No, you do not need to pedal! There is both a twist throttle and a pedal assist system.

How do I remove the battery?2018-08-17T01:44:49+00:00

Except for N-Class, all of our electric bikes are equipped with removable batteries.

Just unlock the battery and slide it out.

How do you control the motor?2018-08-17T02:05:37+00:00

Our electric bikes are equipped with both a throttle and torque sensors.
You can use either system to control the speed of the electric motor.
If you want to cruise without pedaling the twist throttle can be used or if you enjoy pedaling and want to feel more like you are riding a regular bike.

How do you turn the ebikes On/Off?2018-08-17T01:53:54+00:00

On M-Class, you’ll just need to press power button for 2 seconds.

On C-Class, depending on the manufacturing year of your electric bike, there’s an on/off button either under or at the side of your battery, after that button is turned on, you’ll just need to press power button for 2 seconds.

On W-Class, make sure the key on the battery is at on, then you’ll just need to press power button for 2 seconds.

On N-Class, make sure the battery key is at on, then you’ll just need to press power button for 2 seconds.

How far can I go on a single charge?2018-08-17T01:27:42+00:00

You can expect between 25-75 miles on a single charge depending on the model you have, level of assist you are using, the terrain you are riding on, and the size of the rider.

Using the throttle consumes the most battery power so if you are wanting to increase your range, try sticking to a low level of pedal assist (0-2)!

How far can I go on a single charge?2018-08-17T01:32:50+00:00

All of our electric bikes do indeed have a walk mode. It is activated by continuously holding the + button next to the display.
This feature is exceptionally handy when the ebike has heavy load on it, or when you’re pushing your ebike uphill.

How much power do the bikes have?2018-08-17T01:46:06+00:00

In August 2018, we’re adding 750W options for N-Class and W-Class.
All of our other models are 500W which is the legal limit in most states.

How steep of a hill can your bikes go up?2018-08-17T01:42:34+00:00

This is a very relative question. As it depends on the weight of the rider, gear, steepness of the hill, etc.,
In steep hills, riders with hub motors are most likely going to need to constantly pedal.
However, in mid-drive motor models, this needs isn’t as much as the hub motor version.

We do not recommend our riders to ride uphill just with the throttle. This might create irreversible damages on your motor and controller, which are expensive parts to replace.

Is there a power usage or battery gauge on the bike?2018-08-17T02:01:24+00:00

Yes, there is a full-screen LCD display.
There is also an additional LED battery gauge on the side of the battery pack on C-Class, W-Class and M-Class.

Is there anything I need to do before riding my Ariel Rider Ebike?2018-08-17T01:11:22+00:00

Before your first ride:

  • Brakes can rub right out of the box. This is both ok and completely normal and will go away with use.
  • Since the handlebars don’t come fixed on your ebike, sometimes cable might get in the way.
    After installing the handlebar, by turning the bars to the left and right you can make sure none of the cables are pulled too hard.
  • Make sure your pedals are tight using a pedal wrench or longer 15mm box wrench if possible.
    They should be torqued to 35 Nm or 25 ft-lbs.
  • ATTENTION: Do not turn on the lights if you haven’t assembled the front light in place.
    If the open ends of the front light cables touch each other while the lights are on, it blows a fuse.
  • Turn on the headlight by holding the + button for about 2 seconds.
  • By using brakes, check if your rear stop light is functioning properly (excluding M-Class)
  • Check that the connectors on the bike are all plugged in securely and that nothing loosened up in shipping.
  • If you still have any questions, you can simply send us an email, we usually answer all emails within a few hours.
What are the minimum and maximum seat heights of Ariel Rider Ebikes?2018-08-17T01:22:54+00:00

Kindly refer to the sizing tab on each product page, at the description part.

What is the top speed?2018-08-17T01:29:51+00:00

All of our bikes have a top speed of 20 mph without pedaling, which is the legal limit in most states for Class 2 electric bikes.
However, in all model,s you can change the speed limit to a higher or lower value.
Most of our models have a top speed of 28mph.

Why does electric bikes have gears?2018-08-17T01:21:37+00:00

The Ariel Rider Electric Bikes C-Class, N-Class & W-Class has a thumb shift Shimano 7-speed gearing system, M-Class has a twist throttle 3-speed inner gear hubs. Although we find that many users rarely change gears because the electric motor takes away much of the strain, it is still useful to have gears whenever you decide to pedal while cruising or trying to get more exercise or extend your range. The combination of gearing and the 5 levels of variable pedal assistance from the motor means you can always find the most efficient gear and pedal level to go the distance!

How do I register my bike?2018-08-17T01:59:30+00:00

You will need to send us an email with the name & email of the individual who placed the order, and the serial number of the bike.

In order for your warranty terms to be activated, you’d need to register your ebike within 30 days after delivery.

Where is the serial number on the bikes?2018-08-17T01:59:58+00:00

Next to the crank, on seat post tube there’s a gray sticker with a barcode on it. That’s your Ariel Rider Electric Bike’s serial number.

    I was already in love with my downstairs neighbor /bestfriend’s M-Class when I got mine. The only difference is, now I’m not jealous of her electric bike.

    I’ve been waiting for the rear rack for over a month now. I knew it was going to be delivered later when I placed my order but I wasn’t expecting this much of a wait time. I like my ebike otherwise. I want to be able to use my ebike WITH THE REAR RACK

  4. Rated 5 out of 5

    Michael Z.

    Since work just moved me to San Francisco a few months ago, I decided to give up on my car. Because parking is simply expensive and almost impossible and I can’t afford that on my new graduate salary. I’ve tried commuting with Jump bikes around town. While I like them and still use them from time to time, they simply aren’t powerful enough to go uphill and they’re almost never there when you need one.

    Hence my electric bike research began. I chose Ariel Rider Ebikes because it being super affordable compared to its competitors and almost in all cases having better specs.
    My concern was after-sales service. But I don’t think it’ll be an issue after reading all these previous reviews about that.

    The cheapest option in my local ebike shop was almost double the price of this and half the battery and motor power. So I don’t really regret getting an ebike online.

    I wish it had more than 3 gears. Other than that there’s almost no cons.

    We’ve ordered 2 of these bikes and we’re loving it.
    One was a little damaged during shipping, and by damage I mean just a slightly bent rear fender, and the team just replaced the bike next day.
    Note that we had shipping insurance on these ebikes.

  7. Rated 5 out of 5

    James P.

    After a very long online research I’ve decided on M-Class because:
    – The motor is more powerful than others,
    – Inner hub gear,
    – Front and rear lights
    – Suspension seat post,
    – Front and rear racks,
    – Hydraulic disc brakes
    And all this for the fraction of a price of their competitors.
    I’ve just received my ebike yesterday and I love it. It simply feels like having superpowers over the hills of Seattle!

    Thank you!

    I love my new bike! After reading all these reviews, I placed my order and received it withing 36 hours.
    I’m only giving 4 stars because I ordered the gold color since there was a discount on that one and it’s simply gorgeous.
    But it doesn’t really look like the color in the photos.
    I guess it’s one of those colors which doesn’t really photograph well.

    My review will be about the amazing customer service I’ve been receiving from Ariel Rider.

    I love how attentive he and his team are!

    If there were more stars than 5 I’d give it.
    The price point for what you get on this ebike is simply incredible.
    Recommend it to everyone!

  11. Rated 5 out of 5


    Initial reaction: Very very very pleased. The M-class delivers. I was a little hesitant about the 20” wheels on the less than wonderful Portland, Oregon streets. But after a long 25mile ride in the rain and newly slick roads and wet fallen leaves — I can tell you that this bike delivers. The power is steady and continuous. The mid-drive motor never quits working a long hill climb. In fact, I rode straight to the top of Mt. Tabor without stopping at 10-12miles an hour uphill. (FYI — I am not Lance Armstrong)

    Although I have yet to equip the rear rack (backordered), the front basket seems really solid and I like the depth of the basket from the handlebars. I haven’t hauled anything yet (updates coming).

    The suspension seat post is surprisingly useful. The ride overall was pretty comfortable. I’m still dialing in the right handlebar position. The adjustable handlebar mount is pretty awesome in its adjustability, it invites micro-fiddling. The LCD is bright and useful. I do wish it had and integrated cover. The grips are very comfortable. I worry about wear, but time will tell.

    The 3 speed internal shifter is very nice. The spread seems fairly useful. I was able to keep up with the motor to about 22mph (will vary by rider and settings).

    I don’t love the quality of the tires, the reflective sidewall paint is flaking off the tires out-of-the-box. This is probably a cost-cutting measure. Would be nice to see an upgrade option here. I do *love* the wheel construction. The heavier spokes on a 20” wheels look pretty bullet proof.

    The bike is very well balanced, nimble and light. I started pedaling away after a stop at the music store and didn’t managed to forget that I was on level 0 assist. I will at some point attempt a moderately hilly route without any assistance at some point soon.

    I’ve yet to test range on a single battery charge — also TBD.

    More to come, but I’m excited by this bike and the price point is amazing.

    I’ve purchased a shipping insurance with my order, which I actually recommend everyone to do so as these FedEx guys do not care about what’s in the box.
    When my order came in, I saw the delivery man literally pulling from one end of the box and the other end just slammed on the floor as he pulled the box out of the truck.

    Needless to say there were some visible damages on the bike.
    I’ve contacted with customer service guys and my new ebike arrived 2 days later.
    And that’s GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE. Thank you Ariel Rider Team.

    ok, maybe I was a little snappy in my previous review. But it’s good to see that my negative review is not deleted and it’s here.
    I’ve had an issue with the battery and asked for a replacement, the new battery arrived in 5 days.

    On to my actual review of the bike:
    I think this is the best electric commuter bike out there. It has everything I’m looking for:
    Front rack, rear rack, hydraulic disc brakes, inner gear hub, adjustable stem, small frame, lightweight, suspension seat post, LED lights etc.,
    I think it’s price is unbeatable and the range I’m getting from my battery is quite satisfying.

    I’d recommend M-Class to any commuter out there without any hesitations.

    I’m a small business owner and I do lots of trips to my local UPS store.
    I was in between C-Class and M-Class, but Nora from Ariel Rider ebikes suggested that I get the M-Class as I’m a small framed person.
    My hesitation was not being able to haul all the boxes that I need to.

    But after I received my electric bike, I realized that it can actually haul much more and I can still easily lift up this ebike.
    Thank you Nora for your recommendation, I’m in love with my Ariel Rider.

    The M class is an impressive bike that we plan to carry on the back of our RV instead of hauling a toad. I think it will work out great! I bought a top of the line lock to protect our bikes when travelling. Bikes were easy to set up even though the instructions were a little vague. We had a bad inner tube on my wife’s bike right out of the box but Nora agreed to send out a new tube right away. I am still amazed at the power these bikes have. I’ve gone 27 mph on it which is plenty fast!

    So, it’s 10:25pm here in Newark, Ohio. I just got in. Took it around the block after the neighbors went in and opened her up. OMG! What a blast! In level 6 I had peddled it up to 26 mph. ME. I am not exactly super fit, but I am a bad ass old lady biker.

    My Ariel Rider makes me feel like super woman. One of the neighbors, who I have not yet met, came out and smiled and waved. I asked him if I looked FAST…cause I felt FAST. He laughed and shot me a thumbs up.

    The bike is so comfortable. The saddle is perfect. I don’t even think I miss the front suspension fork. 😊I love your bikes! The entire line! Real talent! And you make great videos.

    So, be safe, stay happy and keep the rubber side down.

    I bought the M-Class without racks and my husband got the fully loaded one.
    We’ve had them about a month or so and couldn’t be happier with them, although I had to order racks after realizing that they make a huge difference.
    We love the front baskets, the ease of removing and charging the battery and the comfort of riding these bikes.

    I got this ebike to commute in my community and mainly go on fun rides with my 10 month old.
    The Yepp baby seat fits to the rear rack like magic.
    Since the rear rack is much lower than the saddle, we don’t have a problem my feet hitting to the seat.

    The rear rack being low also helps with keeping the center of gravity low, which allows me to ride it stable.
    Front rack is more than enough for my bags when the rear rack is occupied by the baby seat.

    The battery lasts forever! My baby and I use the bike almost everyday for 5-6 miles and we have to charge it once a week (even then the battery is never empty).
    Thank you Ariel Rider!

    I just got this commuter bike about 6 weeks ago, at 62 years old, I went with this ebike because of it’s compact size and lightweight structure.
    Since I live in Chicago, I just needed to do normal bicycle maintenance on it so far. All is good.

    I’ve never had a tire issue, and the main reason why I went with this ebike is because it’s light and I can easily lift it to bus bike racks.
    I take the battery off before I load it on the bus, which makes the bike super light to lift even for an old timer like me.

    This was a great purchase and I’m very happy with it!

    I bought the model M for my 8 mile commute to work everyday. My commute is mostly on nice trails and sidewalks with about 1 mile on gravel. It really handles the gravel well which was a nice surprise for me. I really love this bike. I am 6’4 and over 200lbs and so initially I was worried that this small bike might not fit me well, but It rides great. And the range is pretty good too! I get about 25 miles and I normally use pedal assist level 4 (out of 6). Also I love the fact that when I park it at a rack and take the battery off It doesn’t draw any unwanted attention. It almost looks like a kids bike. That makes me far less worried about getting it stolen. I use an abus framelock and a cheap cable lock and feel pretty comfortable. I keep it in my garage at night though. I bought the front and rear racks and one pannier bag. Love the bag and the racks. I also love the lights. I use them even during the day on my commute because it makes me so much more visible. I really look forward to my commute now instead of dreading it. Also, it is fun to have this bike at our house. My wife and I are in pretty good shape and this way we can have people over to our house to go for a bike ride and if we give them this bike we know they can more than keep up! Overall this is a really fun bike which is great for commuting and also really nice to allow a large variety of people to ride it. I am a big fan! Thank you Ariel Rider for making such an awesome bike! Now I just need to get one for my wife! Just need to decide if we should get the same model or try one of the other models! I might need another battery too if we end up going on some epic long weekend rides. Overall I am very happy with my purchase after being a little nervous at first to order from an internet only company.

    Since we started traveling across the country full time, I always hated hauling our car at the back.
    So we decided to look for ebike options. Got M-Class for it’s compact size, great looks, and lightweight.
    I’m 62 and once I take off the battery, I can easily lift this ebike without any problems.
    This summer we had a blast riding our electric commuter bikes and couldn’t help but laugh out loud as we cruised around the parks and town.

    This is my review of M-Class after 200 miles trip.
    I owned a cheap e-bike from Amazon before and this is a big upgrade for me.
    Things i like about the bike.

    – Being light weight
    – powerful motor
    – Having mid-drive
    – Hydraulic brakes
    – front and rear basket
    – front and rear light
    – easy to get on the bike
    – Internal gears
    – After sales support.
    – Long range
    – Easy adjustable handlebar
    – Comfortable ride.

    Things I don’t like:

    – Rear light is little bit low but that is normal on such height e-bike.
    – I wish they have more accessories.

    Will i suggest to others? Yeah especially if you live in a hilly city.
    I really enjoy my daily bicycle rides.

    Ordered my ebike 2 days ago, just received it today! What a great service!
    I’ll be writing more reviews once I put some mileage on this commuter.
