Description

I usually don’t simply copy and paste promotional jargon from company websites for these intros, but in the case of the Espin Reine, what they have to say is right on the money – every ride is a holiday. I love this “little engine that can” and does deliver. The Reine is an impressive electric bike at a very reasonable price.

At the heart of the Reine is the stout mid drive motor from TTium, a newer player in the ebike marketplace. TTium is founded by a group of aerospace engineers who knew they could improve on the designs of the current big players in the field of mid drive systems. From what I can see and have experienceed, they have succeeded with flying colors. The Discovery motor is 2 lbs. lighter than the competition, delivers a higher torque output, and is phenomenally quiet. Its power is delivered via four levels of pedal assist plus a fifth choice – Isport – that automatically adjusts through all levels based on your input at the pedals to provide the most natural riding experience imaginable. Added to that is the presence of a manual throttle control to provide the best of all possible power delivery choices.

The Reine has an easy low step frame design that will accommodate riders from 5’ 1” to 6’ 3”. Shimano 9-speeds offer ample gearing, Zoom hydraulic disc brakes keep things under control, and a host of other features round out the package: Suntour front suspension, adjustable stem, front and rear lights, fenders, rear rack, side kickstand, lockable removable battery, and an easy-to-read color display.

I find the Reine to be a “piece-of-cake ride”. By that I mean that it feels so easy and simple to get around town on this rig. Set the pedal assist to “Isport” mode, maintain proper gearing, and then there’s nothing else to do save the occasional bump of the manual throttle for an extra momentary boost. It offers a very comfortable upright riding position and all the controls are exactly where your hands intuitively want to find them. Espin has really hit a home run with this bike. If you need an all-around electric bike for town riding, grocery shopping, daily commuting, and weekend country back road adventures at an extremely affordable price, the Espin Reine could be the bike for you.
