An affordable price point, welded rear rack and a torque sensor: What’s not to love?
In this Surface604 Werk review, we take a close look at this Canadian-designed electric commuter bike to get a feel for how it performs in the real world. The Electric Bike Report review team put the Werk through a series of challenges designed to demonstrate how the bike brakes, handles, climbs and even how far it can go on a single charge.
The Surface604 Werk boasts a welded rear rack and a 500W Bafang rear hub motor that, notably, is controlled by a torque sensor that makes that motor more responsive to a rider’s pedaling. That torque sensor, plus a handful of other upgrades to the drivetrain, brakes and other areas, are what Surface604 says makes this e-bike worth a little more money than its competitors.
In a world where more performance from your e-bike usually means exponentially higher costs, can you balance performance and affordability to make an e-bike that’s better than the rest? Let’s find out.
