The second thing I noticed about the Eeyo 1s is, of course, how light the bike is. But it's not just the weight; the bike also uses a belt drive instead of a chain and gears.
These two things together give the bike an extremely interesting feel. The fixed 50 / 20 gear ratio gives you torque; standing on the pedals and really shoving (like I'm used to with my mountain bike) will almost lift the front tire off the ground.
This torque combined with the light-yet-stiff carbon fiber frame means you can really manhandle this bike. You can get on, shove off, and whip the bike around without fiddling with any gears, and it all feels absolutely perfect.
Speaking of power, the Eeyo 1s' 123.4 Wh battery and 250 watt motor are, to be blunt, small. Puny. Diminutive.
But when combined with the belt drive, the 50 / 20 gear ratio, and some pretty stellar motor control, the pedal assist feels really great. In fact, the Eeyo 1s doesn't really feel like an e-bike at all. With just a fraction of a pedal, it just goes.
The Gogoro Eeyo 1s is probably not for the hardcore cyclist that's thinking of going electric. Instead, the Eeyo 1s is far better suited to someone who doesn't have a bike yet but wants one, preferably an electric one.
For those people — people who just want something great to ride around the city — this bike will blow your socks off. It feels incredible to ride on a nice fall day. If you're not a "bike person" and you've got the money, the Gogoro Eeyo 1s should absolutely be on your list.
