Simplicity and elegance are two of the defining features of the Model M step-through Electric Cruiser. So too are power and comfort.
The Model M beach cruiser, with its bespoke colorways and hidden battery and cables, is simply one of the most stylish electric bicycles on the market today. And with its 24" x 1.75" Kenda K-Rad tires, it's perfect for shorter riders down to 4'-6" in height.
Like other beach cruisers from Electric Bike Co., the Model M is highly customizable. You can select to include the standard 48V/10.5Ah battery, which is discretely hidden in the front basket, or a dual battery configuration for twice the range per charge. You can select a single-speed direct drivetrain, or a 7-speed rear derailleur. You can choose the standard rigid fork or upgrade to a suspension fork for greater shock absorption. You can also add a rear rack with dual pannier bags and the MIK mounting system, and other accessories, including handmade cherry wood and walnut fenders and chain guard with stainless steel and brass mounting hardware.
However you configure your Model M, rest assured you will be getting an ebike that is both comfortable to ride, with its wide cruiser-style handlebars, and a powerful hill climber. The Model M also features hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm rotors front and rear for authoritative stopping power, and an automatic motor cutoff system, to prevent you from powering the motor while engaging the brakes.

The independent ebike review site EBR has given the Model M high marks. You can see their video review below, and check out the full written review at EBR. Their review is quiet thorough, noting how the Model M is sturdy and powerful, arrives fully assembled, and is supported with an industry-leading five-year comprehensive warranty and exceptional customer service. Further, EBR says that the Model M:
A super approachable wave style step-thru cruiser with small 24" wheels that keep the frame low to the ground. Extremely well supported with great customer service and an industry leading five year comprehensive warranty! Extra emphasis on charger and battery quality here with extra fuses and higher quality parts.
Comes standard with bright integrated lights (two 6-LED lights on the rear!) Powerful 180mm hydraulic disc brakes with thick 2.3mm rotors, quad piston calipers, and large adjustable-reach levers with motor inhibitors. Color LCD display with full sized USB charging port on the side, lots of adjustment options in the display settings.
Highly adjustable drive modes offer Class 1, 2, or 3 operation (pedal assist, throttle, and 25 mph options). The variable speed trigger throttle is easy to use and the sealed 12-magnet cadence sensor performs consistently. Extra large saddle and long steel handlebar provide great comfort, but EBC sells an optional seat post and suspension fork upgrade for further comfort.
Amazing range of upgrade options including high capacity battery pack for extended range (20ah vs. 10.5ah), paint matched steel fenders and chain cover (or real wood), MIK compatible rear rack, cup holder and waterproof speakers, bags and custom-painted baskets... Price jumps considerably if you change from the stock white color, shipping costs extra, the headlight does not point where you steer, steel parts can rust if scratched (but they include touch-up paint).
