Electric mid-drive bike with the latest technology
The Verza e-bike from renowned brand Felt is a real 'wower'. If you are looking for a stylish bike with next-level technology (the latest in e-bike motor and drive train technology), with low total weight, low maintenance and excellent durability, then hello, start here please.
The Verza features a reliable Bosch pedal-assist electric motor with NuVinci H|Sync cadence-based, electronic auto shifting technology. What the heck does that mean? Basically this is a bike with fluid gears INSIDE the rear hub (so the chain can never fall off, nice) that adjusts automatically as you ride, just like the transmission in some newer vehicles.
Because the internal gears are continuously variable you won't even feel the bike changing gear. Your legs keep going at the same speed no matter what the terrain is like. It's like magic! You can adjust the cadence (how fast your legs go around) on the Bosch user interface even while you're riding.
You never have to think about changing gears - even when you stop, the bike adjusts for takeoff automatically. See, this is a magic bike. If you can pedal, steer, and brake, you can ride this e-bike.
If you miss the sensation of having gears you can emulate this by using the plus and minus buttons on the (left hand mounted) control panel.
The front stem is adjustable so we can raise or lower the handlebars to achieve the most comfortable riding position for you - great if you prefer to be more upright, so you can look around more easily, check traffic, or enjoy the view.
The 63mm Suntour suspension forks and ergonomic touch points mean this will be one comfortable ride, even over the bumpy stuff. This bike transitions from road to cycle path to rail trail with ease.
Braking will be easy-as with the Magura hydraulic disk brakes - no worries about slowing down quickly from your top speed even if you're flying downhill or riding in wet conditions.
As a bike you have to love that's a low step through frame in a nice and neutral gloss black - jazzed up a bit with silver and lime, very gender non-specific. The Verza is available in four frame sizes including extra small which isn't alway easy to find in an e-bike but is the ideal size for super short ladies.
It comes complete with rear carry rack which gives us lots of carrying options if you are using it for commuting or running errands around town.
The rear light is integrated into the rack which is great because it can never fall off, and it runs off the power of the main battery. if you forget to turn the lights off again when you stop, don't panic, the Bosch system will eventually sense the lack of movement and power itself down.
This is a relaxing and silent e-bike that we can highly recommend.
