The Compact Neo comes with an alloy frame and 20-inch wheels for a lightweight bike with a low standover height that anyone can comfortably handle around town.
At less than 40 pounds (18 kg), the bike allows for a maximum rider weight of 300 pounds. Yet it’s still sturdy enough to take a beating.
The seat post also adapts to accommodate different-sized riders, so it’s highly shareable while offering comfort to your backside.
Like many modern e-bikes, Cannondale placed the e-bike’s battery inside the frame, retaining the classic bike form while still giving riders that electric boost. To that end, the battery offers three different assist levels. There’s also a convenient walk mode, which propels the bike just enough to make pushing along more manageable.
The Compact Neo’s rear-hub Hyena drive system offers “hill-taming power” and assistance up to 20 mph. Fully charged, the battery’s range gives riders up to 47 miles of supported cycling.
