Founded in 2018 and continually fulfilling its mission to “get more people on eBikes”, Ride1Up is not a stranger to combining performance and value, as it was an ethos that the company was built around. Well, today they continue that tradition by releasing their first performance gravel eBike for under $2500. Introducing the Ride 1Up CF Racer1.

Blending performance and value, this new offering is a SRAM-equipped gravel eBike with a full carbon fiber frame and fork, items you might find on a bike 4 times the cost of the Racer1.

The CF Racer1 is engineered for cyclists who want both speed and versatility. Therefore, it sports a concealed powertrain. This gravel rig will be coming in two build options. With an impressive component spec, this eBike sets a new standard for performance-inspired electric gravel bikes.

Some of the highlights of the CF Racer1:

  • Ultra-Light Carbon Fiber Frame: It features a carbon fiber frame, “ensuring exceptional strength and durability while maintaining an incredibly lightweight design”.
  • Sleek Concealed Motor and Battery: With a completely concealed powertrain, it delivers a streamlined and aesthetically pleasing look. It’s equipped to handle uphill challenges with a powerful 250W nominal BAFANG motor that provides the necessary boost.
  • Versatile Riding Experience: Available as a traditional road setup or modern gravel spec, it allows riders to choose their style. Whether navigating gravel paths or cruising on the open road, this electric bike delivers, wherever you choose to adventure.
  • Components: The CF Racer1 is available in two versions – gravel and road – both models are equipped with SRAM Rival 1x11s components for performance and proven reliability for any adventure. A wide-range cassette and powerful hydraulic brakes let you power up any climb and confidently descend.

Hilarious! I had to check this piece of humor:

Proverbs 20:17
English Standard Version
Bread gained by deceit is sweet to a man,
    but afterward his mouth will be full of gravel.

I must not have read the title correctly. I was reading the article as to why this carbon gravel bike weighed 27lbs. I’d like to see if they could make this same bike without a motor and what would the cost be for that? It looks like a nice build, and for $2300, wow, j

I’m looking forward to buy the cf1. However my weight is 240 pounds and the max capacity is 225. Is this okay or I’m just too heavy for the bike.
