eBikes are great for commuting. But the chunky styling (and a prohibitive price point) almost always leaves something to be desired. That’s where Tenways — an up-and-coming Dutch brand newly arrived on American shores — comes in.
Tenways’ three urban/commuter eBikes offer reasonable claimed performance at reasonable prices (we’ll dig into specs in a minute). But where the rigs really shine are their sleek profiles. These are eBikes that almost look like non-electric commuters. Pair that with understated but pleasing paint jobs, and you’ve got some damn fine-looking e-bicycles.
Tenways CGO city-going commuter ebikes
And did we mention all three come with Gates Carbon Belt drives? That alone might interest commuters looking for reliability, clean pant legs, and (relatively) hassle-free maintenance.
Hydraulic disc brakes and smartphone connectivity round out the quality features shared by all three bikes.
All specs mentioned in the following section are claimed by Tenways and not independently verified by BikeRumor!
CGO600 entry-level city ebike
The CGO600 anchors the collection at $1,799 MSRP. The 252Wh (36v, 7Ah) battery is integrated, so you’ll need to park your bike near an outlet for charging.
- Weight: 35.2lb / 16kg
- Max speed: US limited at 20mph / EU limited at 25km/hr
- Motor: Mivice M070 250W Rear Hub
- Range: up to 43 miles / 70km
CGO600 PRO city ebike
If you want a little more speed, range, and flexibility, consider the Tenways CGO600 PRO ebike. An extra $100 gets you a little extra juice and ten more miles of battery life. And speaking of the 360Wh (36V, 10Ah) battery, it’s removable from the top of the downtube for easier charging, also out of the ebike.
- Weight: 41.9lb for the US version with the more powerful motor / 18kg for the EU version (with a 250W hub motor)
- Top speed: US limited at 20mph / EU limited at 25km/hr
- Motor: Mivice M080 350W Rear Hub
- Range: 53 miles / 100km for the EU model
Tenways CGO800S cruiser commuter ebike
The CGO800S is an interesting bird: A step-through model with a rear rack and suspension fork. Want some cruiser comfort but still need to jump some curbs? This one might do the trick. MSRP is $1,699. And that price point gets you some interesting features, like rear turn indicators, a slick-looking integrated display, and a removable 375Wh (36V, 10.4Ah) battery.
Tenways offers free shipping and a two-year warranty on all three bikes. Check ’em out.
