Hyper E-Ride City E-Bike Overview
The 700C Hyper E-Ride is a beginner-friendly City eBike that has a step-through frame, front and rear fenders, and a rack in the rear. Hyper is making quality BMX bikes for the last decades. The bike is designed to give you an upright position and the handlebars are adjustable to ease up your ride.

This City eBike comes with a brushless 250W hub motor combined with a 36V rechargeable battery. The power factor isn’t that applauding and there won’t be any super thrust to get you through the street. But yet, the pedal assist is enough to give you a decent riding speed and makes steep climbs on hilly terrains easy.
The frame is quite sturdy and has a step-through design. The bike has superior shock absorption and has an adjustable seat and handlebars good enough for the city ride. With this eBike, you can skim through the streets with speeds of up to 20MPH and gives a runtime of 1hour/20 miles.
The brakes on the bikes are the V brakes or the Rim brakes. It’s a bit outdated but has enough power. The 6 speed Shimano gear set is entry-level but fine. The gears help quite well during the 3 level pedal assist modes.

Hyper E-Ride City E-Bike Motor
The Hyper eRide comes with a 250W Brushless Rear Hub motor coupled with a 36V rechargeable battery. The motor is just an entry-level with 250W suitable for beginners. However, it enough to carry a 250LBs rider through a hilly trail without much of an issue with its Pedal Assist. However, there isn’t the throttle mode and that could be a major turn off for some.
The brushless motor combines with the 3-level pedal assist mode to give you speeds of up to 20MPH. You have to pedal in order to get the motor to assist your ride. There is a sensor near the chainring that senses your pedaling action.
Changing the pedal assist levels give the necessary boost to give a head start. You can boost the speed within pedal assist mode to achieve the maximum speed.
There is also a 6 Level Shimano gear system that helps the rider to ease pedaling. The gear set is from Shimano but is entry-level. Its one of the old school gear system but tries well to give a boost to your ride.
700C Hyper E-Ride Battery
The battery in the eRide is pretty decent and offers enough power to last for up to 1½ hours on the pedal assist. It comes with a rechargeable 36V, 7Ah battery and you can see that its pretty basic. But at this price range, the battery combined with the motor does try hard to give you a pleasant ride.
The eBike battery gives you enough power to go up to 22 to 25 miles on the pedal assist. The battery is concealed and you might never feel that you’re standing near an eBike. The additional lock comes to remove the battery from the frame.
The battery compartment in the frame is a pretty neat and clean design without any additional bump to conceal the battery. The removable battery lets you charge with the bike or removed it from the frame.
The 5 LED indicated the battery charge. There is an additional turn-on button next to the battery level indicator to turn in battery power. There is also a charging port on the bike so that you can directly charge it without removing the battery.
The keys along with the bike lock the battery with the frame. There is a separate one the top part of the battery compartment that helps you switch on the battery.
The battery lasts quite a while with one charge offers up to 20 miles. Hyper eBike is easy to remove & charge or charge it on the bike. The battery takes around 4 hours to get charged.
And yes, be ready to charge it quite often as you’ll most probably reach the battery limit once your ride’s over. There are prior battery protection circuits and are rated with the highest protection standards.
The 700C Hyper eRide has only the Pedal Assist to flaunt. Unlike other eBikes on the market, including the Nakto eBike we’ve reviewed, there isn’t the Throttle mode. This might be an issue for some. But at this low price range, it’s a sure shot to get into the field of eBikes. This eBike offers 3 level Pedal Assist.
You can adjust and set the level on the panel near the handlebar. Once you get on the bike and start pedaling, the pedal assist kicks in. Depending on the level, the pedal-assist gives you a forward thrust that can reach a max value of 20mph. Within the chain rung, there is a sensor that detects the pedal action. It adjusts the level of pedal-assist you need.
With pedal assist, you can achieve three modes of speed, Low-Med-High. With High mode, you can achieve just 20MPH with pedal assist. There is also a 6Km button that offers very low cruize power just to push the bike while you walking with it. This mode doesn’t work like an electric bike.
Prior braking reduces the speed of the motor and reduces the overall speed. Keeping the pedals idle doesn’t really switch off the pedal-assist mode or reduce the speed.
The 6 level Shimano gear set works hand in hand with the pedal-assist to give an easy climb up a hilly trail. The use of the gears can be felt while you’re on the pedal mode.
There is also the normal mode that is simply the old school bike riding. The gears also help with the manual pedal as it can help reduce the energy to pedal on hilly and steep trails.
The power assist does not come on immediately after you start pedaling. The Assist kick in after you complete two or three pedal cycles. This will work perfectly with a flat surface when you ride in the city.
The pedal-assist comes a bit hard when you climb the hill. The motor will kick in after you achieve a certain amount of stroke. You need a few cycles, to pedal in and it is a bit hard to do when you climb hills.
A thing to note is that as there is no throttle mode, the batteries are able to thrive a bit longer than usual. But in our opinion, Hyper could’ve implemented the Throttle mode as its one of the key things that make a bike an eBike.
Riding and Comfort
The Hyper eRide comes with a sturdy central aluminum frame and looks quite sporty. The step-through design makes it easy for people of all ages to use this eBike. It is strong enough to carry an average person that weighs up to 250LBs.
The bike is lightweight and doesn’t give stress like the premium ones that are heavy. The bike suits the average guy between the range of 5’3” to 6’2”. But the tall riders might feel a bit of an issue and a bit of back pain is inevitable.
The saddle comes with an adjustable post. And the seat is not that much comfy as you think. You can replace the seat with a dual spring comfy seat if you want.
The front suspensions are good but not up to the mark. But yeah, bring an entry-level budget-oriented eBike, we can go in terms with that. A thing worth mentioning is that the bike suits the city rides. It will be good not to take it to off roads and bumping trails.
The brakes on the eBike are average. We can just tell average as its the outdated rim brakes both on the front and the rear. Some of the other eBikes from Ancheer and Nakto at least give front disc brake but they are a bit pricey. You might feel that the components are a bit cheap and you might often require occasional adjustments of brakes and gears.
You can have an upgraded model with a disc break if you want to have a feel of more control and security. However, for a city bike with 20mph, maximum speed, this break will be enough to control.
Some of the extra accessories that you can equip are the rear end reflectors, rear carrier, kickstand, etc. The bike comes with front and rear reflectors with the delivery. But there isn’t a headlight and not connected to the battery.
You should equip an aftermarket one if you need it. You can very well hardwire it to the internal battery. If you wish you can go for a good quality horn as the bike in the factory state has a below-average one.
The Tail side reflector is also basic, but at least they could’ve opted for an electric LED brake light. If you have some basic knowledge of electronics, there are few eBike accessories you can order and fit this bike.
The bike comes nearly assembled. The major part of the assembly time required fo the rear wheel and gears. All these things are taken care of before shipping and assembled well. All you need is to take care of the seats, front wheel, and the pedals. The bike is quite easy to assemble.
There’s even an online video on the Walmart page that shows you how to assemble it. If you pick up the bike at a local Walmart, they’ll assemble it for FREE.
What’s in the Box
With the whole delivery, you get the E-bike, a Li-Ion rechargeable battery, a battery charger, a tool kit, a user manual, and other important documents. The bike needs to be assembled.
There is the necessary institution booklet that shows what goes where and how. There isn’t anything else like a carry basket or an LED headlight except the front and rear reflectors. You need to get those extra accessories separately.
