Spain’s Crow Bicycles has decided to join the growing ranks of lightweight e-bikes with its new Gravital line.
In keeping with Crow’s longtime focus on gravel, the company’s new line includes several eGravel models. However, it’s also offering lightweight ebikes for the road and commuting.
With some of these bikes weighing just 28.6 pounds, Crow’s new e-bikes can compete with many of the lightest e-bikes on the market. The bikes come with the Fazua Rid 50 Trail motor system and a 252 Wh battery that will last for about 54 miles in the lowest assist setting.
By removing the battery, riders can shed another 6.6 pounds. This requires the installation of an optional hollow tube that also provides extra storage space for tools, snacks or extra clothing.
The bikes aren’t cheap, but their price points remain comparable to many e-bikes at this weight level.
