Cannondale – Mavaro Neo
Cannondale has released their brand new urban electric bike, the Mavaro Neo. The Mavaro is available in two frame designs – a low pitch version and a high pitch edition – along with a number of other notable features.

Perhaps the most unique feature is the carbon-reinforced belt drive, which Cannondale installed because it never needs greasing and is “virtually maintenance free.” The front suspension has also been revamped, with a new version of the HeadShok suspension fork, which now features a Quad Gage needle bearing system with 50mm of travel, and oversized fork legs, wide spacing hubs and tapered steerer for better handling.

Cannondale has also worked with Garmin to create an integrated radar system that will alert drivers to vehicles approaching from behind, as well as headlights developed with Lezyne, providing high visibility. For the motor, Cannondale opted for the Bosch Smart System drive unit, Performance Line CX 250w, with a 750w battery, Kiox 300 display and remote control, giving it a range of up to 175 km.

The Mavaro will be available from distributor CSG in four sizes from small to XL, along with 27.5- and 29-inch wheels (depending on frame size).

Recommended retail price: £5,800
