Sondors Electric Bike

While it’s not the flashiest ride around, the Sondors Electric Bike is one thing that other e-bikes aren’t: affordable. Sondors is equipped with fat off-road tires and a powerful 350 Watt motor — activated by pushing its thumb throttle — to handle all terrains and reach a respectable 20 mile per hour top speed on asphalt for up to 50 miles (with pedal assist). They’ll also gladly take the money you saved in exchange for one of numerous upgrades, including a higher-capacity battery, a shock-absorbing fork, or a lightweight aluminum frame that sheds 6 pounds off the original’s 50 pound weight.
