Affordable single speed with a low-maintenance belt drive and minimalist styling. Our reviewer liked the smooth yet punchy power delivery, light weight (33lbs / 15kg) and the modest price tag. The frame also has eyelets for fenders and rack if you want to go more fully equipped.
One of the fresher releases on this list, the Aventon Soltera is a sleek-looking e-bike that handles well and keeps the weight fairly low at 41 lbs / 18.6kg. Snappy motor performance makes for enjoyable riding at class 2 speeds and the Soltera can be had for entry level e-bike prices.
Many single-speed e-bikes that sport fixie looks don’t use high-end Magura brakes, but you won’t hear us complain! The FLX Babymaker 2 is stealthy, quick, and brakes with the best of them.
We loved the RadMission’s efficiency, with it returning what is a very impressive range for a single speed of 37 miles from a 504Wh battery. You also get the option of throttle control.
It’s still reasonably light at 47.8lbs / 21.7kg despite the sizable battery and beefy motor. At $1,199 it clearly gives plenty of performance for a great price.
A lightweight and functional model with ‘stealth’ this-is-not-an-ebike looks and a belt drive and lighting to boot. Weight is a very respectable 36lbs / 16kg.
Volt are based in London, UK and this is a new model and definitely a superior quality e-bike with a rear hub motor and torque sensor setup that is not usually found on single speeds. It works well in terms of both range from the 504Wh battery, hill climbing ability and speed on the flat. Premium features include an electronic key system and the highly rated Schwalbe G-One gravel tyres. It’s not particularly light for a single speed at 48lb / 21.8kg but that includes a good sized battery, decent sized motor, wheel lock, metal fenders, powerful hardwired lights and kickstand. RRP is £2199.
This UK company make just one model of e-bike but it stands out as it’s an unusual magnesium-framed single speed folder. It’s a dinky yet funky looking machine that really packs a surprising amount of climbing ability into a small but high torque rear Bafang motor. The throttle can be used whilst pedalling and gives instant full power – great for nipping in an out of traffic or for particularly steep climbs. Both weight and price are reasonable at 39lbs / 17.65kg and £1450 respectively.
