PRIORITY E-CLASSIC PLUS STEP THRU
OUR LOW-MAINTENANCE BELT DRIVE CRUISER—ELECTRIFIED!
When we launched in 2014, the Classic was the first bicycle model to wear the Priority badge and it continues to represent everything we stand for as a brand—low-maintenance belt drive bicycles at an excellent value that are easy to buy, ride, and maintain backed by industry-leading customer support.
The e-Classic Plus builds on its predecessor by electrifying the original platform and enhancing your ride without the maintenance demands and heft of other e-bikes on the market. The e-Classic Plus seamlessly delivers a natural ride feel with comfort and safety at its core. The low-drag 250W motor—with a removable 374Wh battery integrated into its donwntube—silently and seamlessly delivers power to the front wheel allowing you to ride efficiently with or without pedal assist. Spin the rear wheel by way of a rust/grease-free Gates Carbon Drive Belt and Shimano Nexus 3 drivetrain, and choose one of three pedal assist levels for a light push or strong thrust from the motor. The e-Classic Plus is the perfect choice for a relaxed, fuss-free commute, or a blissful and breezy spin around town.
NO RUST, NO GREASE
The signature feature of all Priority models is the rust/grease-free Gates Carbon Drive belt. Utilizing technology derived from motorsports, the carbon fiber tensile cords that reinforce the belt help it last 2-3x longer than a standard chain, and the bike-specific tooth profile of the belt and sprockets help it feel smooth in all riding conditions. While a chain requires frequent lubrication and maintenance, the belt stays clean and efficient. Without grease, it won’t stain your hands or clothing—just give it a post-ride rinse and you’re ready to roll!
THE PERFECT AMOUNT OF PEP
The low-drag 250W motor—with a removable 374Wh battery integrated into the donwntube—silently and seamlessly delivers power to the front hub motor allowing you to ride efficiently with or without pedal assist. Choose one of three assist levels for a light push or strong thrust from the motor. The integrated battery and front hub motor mean the bike has balanced weight distribution, so it's easy to ride on-power or off-power with virtually no drag. UL 2849 Certified.
CONFIDENT STOPPING POWER
Hydraulic disc brakes are super reliable, work in all weather conditions, can handle varied terrain with ease, and require very little maintenance. For added safety, when you engage the hydraulic disc brakes—with built-in brake-sensing rear light—they cut power to the motor to bring you to a smooth, controlled stop. Paired with 700c x 38mm tires that have a puncture protection layer, you'll be rolling in comfort and confidence from day to night.
SLEEK BATTERY INTEGRATION
The Priority 250W motor is powered by a 374Wh battery that's seamlessly integrated into the downtube for a clean look. The battery is removable with a key-operated lock/release, and can be charged on or off the bicycle. The e-Classic Plus accomplishes the feat of looking like a regular bicycle without sacrificing battery life. It is a Class 1 e-bike—featuring 3 pedal assist levels—with a 20mph maximum speed. You can expect a range of 20-60 miles depending on pedal assist level, terrain, temperature, and rider weight.
ALL DAY ENJOYMENT
The e-Classic Plus features an upright frame geometry with a padded seat, 38mm wide tires, composite fenders, built-in front and rear lights, mounts for accessories like a rack-mounted child seat, and backswept handlebars that are fully adjustable so you can dial in personalized comfort. Available in step-over (diamond) frame and an easy to climb step-through frame, at 49lbs it's lighter than the competition and easy to lift on/off a bicycle rack. Plus, the aluminum frame is strong and rust-resistant.
SAFETY IS OUR PRIORITY
Safety first! The built-in lights feature a brake sensing function and the hydraulic disc brakes feature a motor cut-off function. So, when you grab the brakes, it signals the motor to shut off and the rear light gets brighter like it does on a car when you hit the brakes. Also, the e-Classic Plus has balanced weight distribution with the integrated downtube battery and lightweight front hub motor resulting in superb handling.
