The Pure Flux One is a sturdy, dependable e-bike for short city hops. It’s extremely good value, and its practical design means it’ll serve you well for short commutes and daily errands. The ride is smooth and comfortable, and it’s thoughtfully designed for minimal maintenance. The Flux One isn’t a bike for weekend cruising though; its bottle-style cell battery charges quickly, but with a maximum range of just 25 miles you won’t want to be away from a power socket for too long. A great bike for the money, but make sure you’re aware of its limitations before buying.
If you’re not in the UK, you might not be familiar with Pure Electric, but the company makes some of the best electric scooters around (including our current number one choice, the Pure Air Pro). The Pure Flux One is its first electric bike, and is an easy and affordable way to hop around town without breaking a sweat – though there are a few rough edges that will hopefully be smoothed out with future models.
At £999 (about $1,400 / AU$1,900), the Flux One is one of the most affordable commuter e-bikes around. You can find less expensive models on Amazon (many of dubious provenance) but we wouldn’t advice skimping when it comes to a vehicle with a powerful motor that you’ll be riding in traffic. Pure is a well established brand with a track record of good customer service including returns, free safety checks, and regular maintenance at service centers.
