“Best Commuter E-Bike” –– Cannondale Treadwell Neo 2 Remixte

For commuters looking to get around on a light weight, great looking electric bike, the editors of Bicycling magazine found the Treadwell Neo 2 Remixte to be just what they were looking for. Good enough in fact, that they picked it as “Best Commuter E-Bike” in a recent article.

The editors called out the “clean looks and upright rider position”, and commended Cannondale for the Treadwell Neo 2’s blend of simplicity and light weight.
SHOP TREADWELL NEO 2

“The Treadwell Neo 2 eschews some of the bulkier features – suspension fork, rack and fenders – found on many other bikes in the category. This makes for a lighter and zippier riding bike at a lower price.” –– Bicycling magazine

Available in both traditional frame styles and step-through ‘Remixte’ frame styles, the Treadwell Neo 2 is designed to be an agile, comfortable, and easy to ride electric bike. Though it doesn’t look like an e-bike, the powerful, light weight rear-hub drive system offers dynamic pedaling assistance up to a 20-mph top speed. And a wide-range yet simple to operate 7-speed drivetrain flattens steep hills. Powerful mechanical disc brakes make it easy to slow your roll without losing control.

“Best electric bike for outright fun off road” –– Cannondale Topstone Carbon Neo Lefty 3

In her recent article highlighting the best electric bikes for every type of rider, Cycling Weekly editor, Hannah Bussey, likened the Cannondale Topstone Neo Carbon Lefty 3 to a “pedal-assisted monster truck”. And while we like to think it’s a little more easily approachable than the typical monster truck, we understand what she’s saying. It’s a dirt road slayer!

“This bike is unrivaled in its class in terms of motor performance and the grin-inducing ride. The suspension adds another layer of capability to the package and blurs the gravel/MTB divide even further.” –– Bussey
SHOP TOPSTONE NEO CARBON 3

With its innovative full suspension and powerful Bosch motor providing motorized assistance up to 28 mph, the Topstone Neo Carbon Lefty 3 raises the bar for comfort, handling and performance on dirt and gravel roads. Our exclusive Kingpin suspension and Lefty Oliver fork provide up to 30mm of travel at both wheels to minimize the impact of bumps and vibrations, so you stay fresher and can keep the fun going longer. And with assisted range of up to 78 miles (125km), the Topstone Carbon Neo Lefty 3 is up for virtually any adventure.

“Best for Most People” –– Cannondale Adventure Neo 3 EQ

With its built-in lights, rack, and fenders, as well as a powerful, reliable Bosch mid-drive motor the Cannondale Adventure Neo 3 EQ is fully equipped and ready for any urban adventure. That’s why Wired editor, Adrienne So, named the model the “Best for Most People” in her recent story highlighting the best electric bikes of 2022 for every kind of rider.

“If you’re hunting for a commuter bike with all the bells and whistles that you don’t have to assemble yourself, the Cannondale Adventure Neo 3 EQ is a great pick. Cannondale is a big manufacturer, so its bikes are backed by a large support network of affiliated retailers and shops.” –– So
SHOP ADVENTURE NEO 3

Like each of the models in our Adventure line, the Adventure Neo 3 EQ is built to take on city streets, pathways, and open roads with confidence. The lightweight aluminum step-thru frame and standard dropper/suspension seatpost make it easy to mount and dismount. And the 9-speed Shimano shifting works with the Bosch Active Line motor to provide assisted range of up to 65 miles, with an assisted top speed of 20 mph. Adventure Neo 3 EQ is designed for comfort, equipped for life, and built for fun.

“Best Budget e-MTB” –– Cannondale Moterra Neo 5

Every day, more and more mountain bikers discover how electric mountain bikes empower them to have as much fun on the uphills as the downhills. That’s what Bike Perfect editor, Guy Kesteven, found when he tested the Cannondale Moterra Neo 5. In fact, that’s why he named it as one of the best budget e-MTBs you can buy in 2022 in his recent story. He called the bike “a trail rider at heart that thrives in the mountains.”

“In terms of handling, the Moterra 5 Neo is precise and agile, with a low center of gravity combined with short chainstays, which put the rider in a central upright position. This is ideal if you plan to make use of that full 100km range, as it’s a position that you can comfortably hold for a full day in the saddle.” –– Kesteven
SHOP MOTERRA NEO 5

Despite being the entry-level model in our Moterra Neo electric mountain bike line, the Moterra Neo 5 delivers performance that’s anything but entry-level. With 150mm of front and rear suspension, large, fast-rolling 29-inch tires and a powerful Shimano STEPS E7000 drive unit, the Moterra Neo 5 is the perfect way to get into the backcountry. And with a big 504Wh removable battery hidden in the downtube of the frame, you’ll have the range to get you back out with power to spare. When you’re ready to step up your singletrack game, Moterra Neo 5 is the perfect enabler.

“Best Electric Road Bike” –– Cannondale SuperSix EVO Neo 2

With its lightweight carbon frame and powerful rear-hub motor, the Cannondale SuperSix EVO Neo 2 is barely distinguishable as an electric road bike. In his recent story highlighting the best electric bikes of 2022, Bike Radar editor, Paul Norman, summed it up when he wrote “the Mahle Ebikemotion motor-equipped Neo 2 blends a racer’s looks and crispness with fantastic range.” He noted that, in their testing, the SuperSix EVO Neo 2 actually exceeded its claimed range of up to 62 miles (100km).

“In its non-assisted form, the SuperSix EVO has been one of our go-to bikes throughout its illustrious history. It’s been the benchmark for race-bike ride quality and impeccable handling. So, it’s good news that all of the Neos share the same frameset (based on our current Road Bike of the Year, the SuperSix EVO), which makes for a racy-assisted machine.” –– Bike Radar tester, Warren Rossiter
SHOP SUPERSIX EVO NEO

The SuperSix EVO Neo 2 is not available in the U.S. (Bike Radar is a UK-based media outlet), however both the SuperSix EVO Neo 1 and Neo 3 use the same frame as the reviewed bike.

Every SuperSix EVO Neo model is designed to flatten hills, vanquish headwinds and give you more speed on every road. The light, powerful rear-hub drive system works with the aerodynamic, lightweight BallisTec carbon frameset to deliver speed, efficiency and handling you wouldn’t expect from an electric bike. It’s everything you love about road riding – amplified.
