The Decathlon Riverside 500 Electric Hybrid Bike – An excellent ebike for under £1000
The new Decathlon Riverside 500 Electric hybrid bike is the first e-assist version of their popular B’TWIN Riverside hybrid range of bikes.
I can testify to their build quality as I have owned a B’TWIN Riverside 900, and the finish and general build quality is excellent.
This Riverside 500 electric bike uses a high-torque brushless, geared rear hub motor combined with a 36v11.6ah (417Wh) battery.
Pedal assist is via a torque sensing bottom bracket – this measures the amount of force being applied to the pedals, so get optimum assist as and when you need it.
The rest of the bike benefits from a good quality 6061 alloy unisex frame, with Suntour NCX SF17 63mm suspension forks, hydraulic disc brakes and 8-speed gears with a wide-range 11-34 cassette.
All in all the Riverside 500 electric bike is a great all-rounder, whether commuting or leisure riding.

Mode 2 – Moderate assistance at up to 25 km/h – battery life of around 80 km under normal conditions.
Mode 3 – Boost assistance at up to 25 km/h for the most difficult ascents (warning: your battery life will be severely reduced in the event of prolonged use).
