What is it — Cannondale Compact Neo e-bike

It’s small, reasonably lightweight, has cool styling, and is unmistakably Cannondale. The ethos of the Compact Neo e-bike is to get riders from work to home or around the town in style, without the cumbersome feeling of a traditional e-bike.

Cannondale Compact Neo e-bike Frame Design

The Cannondale Compact Neo e-bike comes in one size frame size and rolls on 20-inch wheels. A universal frame size makes the bike easier for multi-rider use with easily adjustable seat and bar height.

The 20″ x 2.35″ wheels make it highly maneuverable in crowded areas and reduce weight. The Compact Neo e-bike weighs around 40 pounds and is lighter than some but still pretty heavy. The battery is expertly hidden in the frame’s downtube and maintains a sleek acoustic look.

For the Love of Travel

The Cannondale Compact Neo e-bike folds slightly for transportation and easy storage — no tools needed.

The bars use a quick release to fold easily to lay flat across the top of the frame. The pedals use a relatively common folding mechanism that reduces the bulk and makes the bike easier to store/transport.

The full-folded Cannondale Compact Neo will fit easily in an efficient office or tucked away in a corner — a fantastic feature for those with limited space.

Cannondale Compact Neo e-bike Assist Levels

The Compact Neo arrives with three different assist levels, plus a convenient walk mode to help when loaded. The Compact Neo e-bike will go up to 20 mph (25 km/h) with natural on/off power assist. The rear-hub Hyena drive system offers enough power and assistance to get you up the steepest hill or carry the heaviest gear.

What’s the battery life?

Inside the downtube of the Cannondale Compact Neo sits a 250Wh battery. Cannondale says the 250Wh battery will travel nearly 47 miles (depending on the support mode used) on a single charge.

So, is this a 36V, or 48V bike? A 36V 250W hub drive ebike will feel pretty anemic.

It’s a 36V based on Hyena’s website.

This system is in use on several 700c wheel size e bikes. I’ve tried a few of them and they ride very well. I expect it’ll feel downright punchy with small 20” wheels.

The fact that they didn’t call this the e-Hooligan is a miss shot and a mistake. Should have paid some homage to their first compact bike.
