Alright, let’s take a look at some of the new Polaris e-bikes from Interbike (the largest bike show in the US):
The “titanium oxide” color scheme on the Diesel DL818 is definitely an attention getter! The Diesel assists up to 25 mph with it’s 750 watt motor. This e-mountain bike is decked out with a Magura suspension fork and hydraulic disc brakes, a SRAM drivetrain, Kenda tires, and more. The Diesel DL818 is priced at $3,999
The Nordic EV506 is a “fat” e-bike with the Kenda Juggernaut 4″+ wide tires for riding on sand, snow, or almost any terrain you can think of. The Nordic also features the new Rock Shox Bluto suspension fork designed for fat bikes, a SRAM drivetrain, Magura hydraulic disc brakes and more. The Nordic is priced at $4,799. Top assisted speed is 18mph.
The Sabre EV505 is the more affordable Polaris fat electric bike at $3,499. To hit the more economical price it doesn’t have the suspension fork and the component spec is more of a moderate quality.
The Terrain EV503 is a 27.5″ wheel e-mountain bike with a moderate quality selection of components from SRAM, Suntour, and Tektro. It is priced at $2,499.
The Rail EV501 has the larger 700C wheels and it looks like it will be a good around town commuter / weekend cruiser. This e-bike with SRAM, Suntour, and Tektro components is priced at $2,499.
The Course EV512 is a high speed (25 mph) city/ touring style e-bike and it comes equipped with a bunch of accessories (rack, fenders, etc.) right out of the box. The EV512 is priced at $2,999.
