The eFlow E3 Nitro has landed at EBR! This is a sporty, urban style electric bike with a unique twist: the battery is hidden in the seatpost!
This is part 1 of the eFlow E3 Nitro electric bike review and it will give you an idea of what this bike is all about with info on the specifications, an in depth video with riding footage and a walk through of the eFlow features, and a bunch of pictures highlighting the
details of this unique e-bike.
Part 2 of the review will give you info on the eFlow ride characteristics, results from the range test, pros, cons, and overall thoughts on this e-road machine.
Without further ado, let’s get into it!

Here is a video with yours truly riding the eFlow and going over the features of the bike:
That’s the battery! The eFlow comes stock with a Samsung lithium ion 36V 10.75 ah battery pack housed in the seat post. An optional upgrade to a 36V 14.5ah is possible later this year.
This is the frame charging port on the eFlow. It takes 4-6 hours to charge the Samsung lithium ion battery.
The charger plugged into the bike charge port. The battery can also be charged off the bike.
Here is what it looks like to remove the battery/seatpost from the eFlow electric bike.
The seatpost battery can be charged off the bike with the included charger adapter. This is handy if you want to store your bike in the garage and keep/charge your battery inside.
The eFlow frame is constructed with hydroformed aluminum tubing.
The eFlow has a 500 watt direct drive TDCM motor that features a freehub body. That means that the eFlow can use a 10 speed cassette (cog set) on the rear wheel. A lot of rear hub e-bikes come with freewheels that only have 7 or 8 cogs.
The eFlow uses the Axle Release quick release system on the rear wheel. Combined with the motor cable quick disconnect, it allows for the quick removal of the rear wheel without tools.
This the motor quick disconnect. Removing the rear wheel is easy with this and the Axle Release quick releases.
The eFlow comes equipped with the RST suspension fork to take the edge off of rough roads!
The RST suspension fork spring rate can be adjusted using the preload dial. You can set the spring rate to your weight and how active you want the suspension to be.
Note the internal cable routing……nice way to keep things clean!
View of the eFlow control center! The display is front and center mounted on the stem.
The eFlow display gives you throttle or pedal assist (+throttle boost) options, battery life, current speed, max speed, average speed, trip distance, odometer, time, trip time, total time, and a backlight option.

Review Note: Each company pays a fee for a review on Electric Bike Report because of the considerable amount of time that it takes to provide an in-depth review of each eBike. A lot of time is spent on the full range test with distance & elevation profile, the wide variety of detailed pictures, in-depth video, and the write up with the specifications, ride characteristics, pros, cons, and overall thoughts. The reviews on Electric Bike Report are focused on providing you with a detailed “virtual” look at each eBike to help you determine if it is the eBike for you or not.
