THE SETUP AND FIRST IMPRESSIONS

The EC1 arrived swiftly and demanded only a straightforward setup. After unwrapping the robust packaging, the task was to install the handlebars, brake levers, saddle with the seat post, front wheel, and mudguard. The necessary tools and a manual were included to assist with this process. While the assembly is generally uncomplicated, if there’s any hesitation, it’s wise to have a skilled bike technician take on the task.

Upon unveiling, the Heybike’s frame immediately captured my attention. It showcased smooth, uninterrupted welds, contributing to the bicycle’s sleek and modern aesthetic. The frame’s metallic blue finish was impeccable, without a single imperfection.

The Heybike EC1 is a stylish, lightweight electric bike that’s gained popularity in the US and has recently entered the UK and EU markets. This e-bike features a smoothweld frame, hydraulic brakes, and an integrated battery, weighing in at just 18.3 kg. It offers a blend of affordability and quality, priced at around £1499, currently reduced to £1099 for their launch.

ELECTRIC BIKE COMPONENTS

The electric components consist of a small, brushless, geared rear hub motor with a 250-watt power output, complying with UK e-bike laws. It delivers smooth power with a cadence-based pedal assist system, noted for being one of the best of its kind. The battery integrates seamlessly with the frame, offering a good range for its size, and the bike features a large, clear LCD screen for easy navigation and setting adjustments.

In terms of bike components, the Heybike EC1 shines with its well-crafted frame and clean, modern look due to internally routed cables. It comes equipped with a Shimano 7-speed gear setup, a 40t chainring suitable for city riding, and a quality KMC anti-rust chain. The braking is handled by RSX hydraulic brakes with 160mm rotors, comparable in performance to other leading brands.

The bike is fitted with ChoaYang Flying Diamond 700x40c tires, featuring a puncture resistance layer and reflective sidewalls for a comfortable and secure ride. The saddle is firm and sporty, resembling a road bike saddle, and is comfortable over long distances. It also comes with useful accessories like a front light, mudguards, and a kickstand, with an optional pannier rack available for commuters.

EcoMove test rode the bikes and put together a small comfort pack that included a suspension post and gel seat, we feel this adds greatly to the comfort of the bike.

OUR THOUGHTS AFTER TEST RIDING THE BIKE

First big note: Manufacturer’s claim of 50mi range is hogwash, just looking at the battery specs it was obvious. We knew before receiving the bike the max we could expect would be 30mi and the bike delivered a resectable 24mi on hilly commutes. We have adjusted our product listings accordingly and have sent this note to Heybike.

The Heybike EC1’s hub motor provides efficient assistance, reaching the 15.5 mph limit effortlessly. Pedaling beyond this speed feels like riding a standard hybrid bike, with no noticeable motor resistance. Its 18 kg weight makes it easy to ride without assistance on flat terrain, conserving battery for hillier sections.

While the gearing may seem slightly low for flat areas, it’s more effective than competitors like the Fiido C21 Gravel. The bike handles inclines well, though steeper slopes require more effort.

The medium frame accommodates a 6-foot rider comfortably, despite minor toe overlap at low speeds. Handling is nimble, offering stability in sharp turns and on descents over 35 mph. The 700x40c tires perform well on various terrains, including gravel, towpaths, and light forest trails, providing a comfortable ride.

OUR VERDICT

My experience with the Heybike EC1 (and my wife on the ST) has been largely positive. Aside from its budget drivetrain and the not-so-sleek screen, the bike impresses with its sleek frame, neatly concealed cabling, and an overall appearance that belies its £1499 price tag. The hub motor’s performance is noteworthy, offering a respectable 40-mile range from a 360Wh battery. Compared to the the majority of budget e-bikes we’ve tested, the Heybike EC1 provides a more enjoyable ride with better gearing and a livelier feel on the road. Based on my initial weeks of use, the EC1 is a commendable choice for those seeking a lighter e-bike.

    Setting up the EC-1 was straightforward with the provided instructions. Maintenance is a breeze too, making it perfect for people like me who aren’t very mechanically inclined. I dont think I did the brakes right, I should have opted for the EcoMove PDI but the team were amazing in getting me sorted.
