We’ll soon have the full written review at

The Evelo Galaxy 500 is a smooth, comfortable ride. It isn’t overly zippy or powerful, but you feel like you are in control the whole time. We love the automatic shifting — it is quiet and subtle so you don’t even notice it much. The shifter control on the right grip toggles between cadence and torque with just the touch of a button and there’s no jerkiness in the drivetrain. We don’t sense 90Nm of torque from this Dapu motor, but that could be because some of it supports the electronic gearing system. The Galaxy 500 is a good option for riders who want to feel safe and in control while they enjoy the outdoors on a chic well-built ebike!
