Ride1Up Prodigy XR Review – $2.3k

The Ride1Up Prodigy XR is a feature complete commuter-ready speed pedelec that can hit 28mph 45 km/h. It uses a premium mid-drive motor from Brose, and reliable Samsung battery cells. Relatively low price point for proven name-brand components including the 9-speed Shimano Alivio drivetrain. A physical shift sensor cuts power anytime you change gears, significantly reducing chain and sprocket wear. Powerful Tektro hydraulic disc brakes with larger 180mm rotors and adjustable reach levers provide secure stops. The tires offer puncture protection, the lights are bright and shine form the sides as well as the front. Good weight distribution, matching black hardware, comfortable locking grips, the saddle clamp uses two bolts for added strength, the adjustable kickstand is positioned perfectly. Deep but intuitive color display, powerful and smooth Brose TF Sprinter ALU motor with high 90nm torque output. The bike only comes in one size and one color, unless you pay a bit extra for the fancy metallic green. Ride1Up is mostly a direct online brand, so you’ll need to unbox and assemble (but it’s pretty easy with this model). There’s no suspension, which can feel a bit harsh at high speeds. The battery pack took more effort to mount and didn’t always stick. The display is fairly small and has no charging ports.
