Kudos to Evelo for the ingenuity they put into creating the Omega as a hybrid commuter and cruiser e-bike. They are known for coming up with great bikes that feature mid-drive motors and gearing that involves something other than a cassette and derailleur. The 750w Dapu motor pairs really well with the Enviolo Trekking CVT gear hub in creating a powerful bike that’s easy to ride.
Pairing the Enviolo app to this bike enables you to calibrate the AutomatIQ as well as update its software. With most other e-bikes, you have to take your bike to a bike shop to calibrate and update the bike’s software. But not with the Omega’s Enviolo AutomatIQ. Enviolo produced a video to help newbies on this, too. This do-it-yourself feature can save you time and money.
Another great app feature is to adjust the cadence setting, which manages the effectiveness of your pedaling in relation to the road conditions. You cannot do this with most other e-bikes and we really appreciate this feature – although we wish there was a way to control it on the fly instead of popping open the app.
Adding to the Omega’s value, It’s great to see they didn’t spoil the quality motor and gear hub by offering cheap components to keep the price down. You’re getting a quality electric bike with the Omega, and it’s reflected by the price (currently in the sub-$4500 range).
Considering all the amenities on the Omega, Evelo shows they are serious about producing a reliable e-bike, with the 4-year/20,000 mile warranty. As a bike mechanic and former manager, I rarely see bikes and e-bikes that are ridden 5,000 miles a year. Evelo’s warranty means they are confident about the quality of their bikes, which is really impressive.
The Evelo Omega is available as direct-to-consumer online, which helps keep the price down. They don’t charge for shipping and when you receive the box the bike is shipped in, you’ll have very little set up to do. Their bikes come with a 21-day trial, and a 100% refund (and no shipping or restocking fee) if you don’t feel it’s for you – a vote of confidence from Evelo and something that curbs any potential downside for the consumer.
If you need a professional mechanic to fix your bike, they have a network of partner bike shops they can connect you to. And their customer support is on call 7 days a week.
