The Ride1Up Turris is a Class 3 electric bike with a powerful 750w rear hub motor with a 48v12.8ah battery integrated into the downtube that is easily removable with a key.
There are 5 levels of Pedal Assist and a thumb throttle. Combined with a Shimano 7 speed drivetrain that favors flat to moderate hills with ease, the steeper terrain is equally as easy with the support from the motor.
The Turris has Zoom Hydraulic Disc Brakes for smooth and strong braking power on and off road. When riding more aggressive terrain, the 100mm suspension fork and Kenda 27.5 x 2.4″ knobby tires are great for offroad terrain, which is where the Turris feels just as comfortable as it does on your commute to work or school.
For $1295, the Turris comes with fenders and a front light rounding out the components and abilities in different terrain, for inclement weather as well.
There are two frame options available, the XR (Step-Over) and ST (Step-Through) frame. Additionally, the Turris will be available in three different color options. The frame design and riser handlebars allow the rider to be in a upright position when riding, offering a comfortable and balanced ride.
Our XR model weighed in around 52 pounds, which came as a surprise being that if feels much lighter. With most of the weight coming from the rear hub motor, the integrated battery located in the downtube helps to balance the weight of the bike.
With a relatively short wheelbase and a short chainstays, around 457mm, the Turris is extremely playful and fun to ride. From jumping off curbs and weaving through traffic, the geometry of the Turris is a wonderful addition to the Ride1Up lineup as a playful do it all electric bike.
