Unbeatable Value Electric Bike
Emu have taken one of our best-sellers and cleverly made it even more affordable. Welcome to the Emu Roam Step-through. We have come to really like the EMU bikes for their great looks, simplicity, value and reliability. They are a forward looking company, with really good designs and their technical / post-sales backup is excellent.
It’s really great value at just £999. The main differences between the Emu Roam and the Emu Classic are the battery and the gears. On the new Roam, the battery is located on the rear – mounted on the rack. The gears are derailleur, as opposed to in the rear hub, but that is not necessarily a disadvantage. Derailleur gears are lighter and there is the potential for a bigger range of gears than the fully internal hub variety. With a discreet integrated battery with a good range, mudguards, rack, lights and a stand included we think this is great value.
Choice of battery
There are 2 options for the battery. The standard size is 10.4Ah (374Wh), but for an additional £200 you can upgrade to the 14Ah (522Wh).
The Emu Roam comes fully equipped with lights, a chainguard, rack and an adjustable stem. The gears are Shimano and the brakes are Tektro. Lights can be switched on and off from the display on the handlebars and run from the main battery. The Emu Roam also includes anti-puncture reinforcement in the tyres, a comfortable saddle and ergonomic handlebar grips. There is only one size and the wheels are 26″, making the bike both very adjustable for many riders, but also particularly good for shorter ones.
The display includes a host of useful features, including speed display, smart battery indicator and an odometer with single trip distance.
Emu is now an established e-bike company and one that we have a very good relationship with. They are a UK company and the bikes are now made in Europe to a very good standard. This is a great bike at this price point at this price we believe that it offers great value for money.
The Emu Roam step-through is available in black, light blue and classy dark grey. There is also a crossbar version.
