Starting at $1675 for the the Adventure NEO Allroad, this is a Class 2 electric bike with a thumb throttle. A first for Cannondale eBikes. If you’re looking to outfit the Adventure NEO Allroad with racks, fenders and lights, the EQ model is $1825 and comes as seen here. Both of these models are the same at their core.
If you’re looking for more speed and comfort, Cannondale offers the Adventure NEO Allroad SPEED for $2025 as a Class 3 outfitted the same as the EQ with the addition of a front suspension fork.
The Adventure NEO Allroad uses a 250w Bafang rear hub motor that uses a torque sensor to manage the 5 levels of pedal assist. Each PAS mode incrementally offers more pedal assist based off of speed, with PAS 5 supporting you up to 20mph. Something to note is that Cannondale was able to work with Bafang in the tuning for the SPEED model that uses a 750w rear hub motor. Together they created the High Five tuning that separates the 5 pedal assist modes into three groupings. PAS 1 is limited at ~14mph, with PAS 2-3 up to 20mph and modes 4-5 offering pedal assist up to 28mph.
They use a 418Wh battery that is semi-integrated into the frame and removable with a key and can offer up to 47 miles on a single charge. The SPEED uses a 720Wh battery and can support up to 71 miles.
There are two different frame designs, a Step Thru and a Standard frame. The Step Thru is available in both a Small and Medium, while the Standard is availble in Medium and Large. All models of the Adventure NEO Allroad use 27.5 x 2.6 Kenda Booster tires that have a great all-terrain tread that offers great traction off road while still being efficient on the road.
There is a microSHIFT 7 speed drivetrain and Tektro disc brakes that use 180mm rotors. The EQ and SPEED models get hydraulic disc brakes as well for the slightly higher expense. The choice of an 11-42 cassette and a 38T front chain ring offers a wide range of gearing that allows for getting the most out of the 250w motor even on really steep hills.
With an aluminum frame and fork, the Adventure NEO Allroad has a comfortable geometry allowing riders to have a very upright seated position. This makes long rides comfortable for all riders.
