Magicycle is a popular brand of urban and commuting electric bikes with the Magicycle Cruiser as their premium model. In this review we will present all you need to know about the Magicycle Commuter, affordably priced commuter electric bike that is overflowing with value.
Unlike the high-power Magicycle Cruiser, the Commuter is a much more low-key city commuter electric bike. It’s designed as a commuter electric bike featuring 350W motor which is powerful enough for city cruising and some cool solutions for more comfortable ride. It’s built with an emphasis on urban experience, the Commuter packs in the features most-demanded by commuters. And all that for only $1699 (at the moment it is on a discount and you can find it for only $1099 here). Did I say affordably priced? Well, it’s more expensive than Ecotric Lark, Ancheer City Cruiser and similar models, but it delivers high quality components and finish.

Magicycle – Everyday Commuter
The layout of the Magicycle Commuter is your everyday commuter electric bike, meaning it performs the best in urban environment and it’s not made for off-road adventures. Just keep it on tarmac and concrete and everything will work perfectly. Of course, you can use it on park lanes and low grass. It doesn’t have fancy suspension and big, plush tires for large potholes and you will definitely feel them. On the other hand it features comfortable saddle designed especially for long commuting so you can enjoy the ride.
The 350W motor is in accordance with other similar electric bikes and it’s almost a standard that commuter electric bikes have at least 350W motor. But it has surprisingly good kickoff and accelerates evenly and with confidence. The 52V battery is large enough to service the motor for as much as 40 miles on a single charge.
The Magicycle Commuter has a single speed derailleur and if you want to reach the maximum range it is necessary to engage legs and do the most of pedaling by yourself. This model comes with integrated bright LED headlight for better visibility during the night and extra safety.
Standard and Step Through
Finally, beside standard model, the Magicycle Commuter is also available as a low step or step through model. The price stays the same as for the standard model, performances are the same, everything is the same except lower central part of the frame for easier mounting on the bike.
The Magicycle Commuter electric bike is ideal for those looking for affordable yet quality solution. After all this bike cost $1,099.00 an a discount, and it features quality components. If you are looking for electric bike made with extra care and with quality components than the Commuter is your choice. Everything about it feels like a definite step up from the cheaper Amazon e-bikes. While it could always be fancier, I’m pretty darn happy with the Commuter and I hope you will be too.
