M-Class Electric Bike
M-500 ELECTRIC COMMUTER BIKE
THE ULTIMATE URBAN CYCLING EXPERIENCE
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.
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!
45-65+ Miles per Charge
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.
- 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.
Size of M-Class shouldn’t trick you. Optional front basket and the rear rack is designed to meet your needs to use a bicycle as a transportation vehicle.
You can carry grocery bags, gym bags and your kid at the same time.
One big struggle for commuters riding electric bikes was the weight. We hear people complaining about how heavy it is and how hard to carry especially if you live or work in a high rise building.
We’ve listened to your complaints and design all our electric commuter bikes in order to make it lightweight without sacrificing Ariel Rider Ebikes Quality.
We’ve achieved it with new frame production techniques, using larger capacity battery cells but using fewer cells.
You will be surprised that you can lift and carry your e-bike with one hand without an issue.
The versatile and effective Promax Adjustable Handlebar Stem offers just the right fit. The handlebar stem is adjustable from 90 to 160 degrees and includes spacers for 22.2 and 25.4-millimeter stems. It offers an alloy construction for durability. You don’t need any tool to adjust the right position for your self.
You can also adjust the height of the seat within seconds without using any tool too.
For couples who want to share their electric commuter bikes, this feature will let them save a lot of time each time they change.
Not every city has roads to host formula 1. With the help of adjustable suspension seat post, we’ve added another layer of comfort to your commute.
At the end of the day, it’s details like this which will make your commute a breeze.
Least fun part owning an electric bike is the repairs or maintenance. We know the struggle, which is why we’ve designed our electric bike to require minimal maintenance.
Inner hub gears besides having many performance advantages such as reliability also come with durability advantages.
Not having derailleur and protecting gears from outside make them at least 3x more durable compared to normal gears. To learn more about the advantages of inner hub gears you can read this article.
Not all of us are living in sunny SoCal. The M-Class comes equipped with front and rear full coverage fenders to keep you clean and dry if you happen to ride through puddles.
We are confident to claim that M-Class is the easiest electric commuter bike to move around both when you are on it or pushing it.
From top to bottom M-Class is designed to make it extremely easy to carry.
A small but very useful handle under the saddle will help you to pull your electric bike out of tight spaces, without needing to right next to it.
Everything Under Control
The Ariel Rider Electric Bikes’ LCD display provides riders with all the information they need during a ride.
Allows customization of many different specs, including speed limit.
It’s securely mounted directly to the handlebars and the display angle can be adjusted to accommodate different sized riders.
Large speed display (can change between mph and kmh)
Never run out of battery unexpectedly.
Pedal Assist Level
Pick from 0 to 6, whichever PAS level suits you best.
Especially useful on those long weekend adventure rides.
Always fulfilling to see how many miles you ditched your car.
Our smart screens allow riders to change the speed/odometer measurement systems, backlight of the screen, speed limit etc.,
Change Speed Limit
While we don’t fully recommend electric bike riders to lift up the speed limiter on their electric bikes, we also support adventures of any kind with good safety measures.
And this feature isn’t only for adrenaline junkies! We have lots of clients who actually lower the speed limit to make sure their loved ones can’t ride the electric bikes too fast.
We’ve programmed our ebikes in a way that every possible electronic malfunction (including an unplugged cable) has a specific error code on the screen. So when in the unlikely event of something going wrong, you’ll know exactly which part of your electric bike to look at!
Each component of the M-Class electric commuter bike was hand selected by us. We’re passionate about electric bikes who actually ride electric bikes in our daily commutes for years now. So we are experienced ebike enthusiasts who understand the expectations and real-world problems electric bike riders face in daily life. We’re proud to ride this fully featured electric commuter bike that is not only great looking but also affordable and has the latest technology available in the market. Our office staff is also using this electric commuter bike in their daily commutes by the way!

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.
All of our electric bikes can be pedaled just like a traditional bike without any motor assistance.
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.
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.
No, you do not need to pedal! There is both a twist throttle and a pedal assist system.
Except for N-Class, all of our electric bikes are equipped with removable batteries.
Just unlock the battery and slide it out.
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.
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.
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)!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Kindly refer to the sizing tab on each product page, at the description part.
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.
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.
