Awesome bike!

Just got my Denago Commute 1 & absolutely love it! I really liked the fat tire options but the weight of those bikes was concerning to me. My local dealer showed me the Commute 1 which has wider tires than other ebikes but maintains a reasonable weight that I could handle without assistance. It was a great option that gives stability & is a nice hybrid between a straight road/commute bike and the fat tire styles. It’s well built, with an integrated light & back light up reflector, 5 levels of pedal assist, a thumb throttle that zips you across busy streets & can handle inclines, metal fenders, hydraulic brakes, front & seat suspension, & nice overall design. I’ve added some accessories that include a trunk rack with drop down panniers, a horn & cell phone holder. This bike provides a smooth, comfortable ride that can be used for recreational riding, trail riding, or a comfortable commute. I’m thrilled with my purchase!!

Great bike to cruise!

I have thoroughly enjoyed riding my ebike. Hills are no longer a deterrent, I peddle right up with assist. Now we are setting goals to go on longer rides.

Loving our Denago Bikes

We got two bikes for our family andalready we want two more! The motor is fast but so smooth and the bike is really comfortable. We couldn’t be happier with these.

Well built, a lot of fun, a lot of power.

Overall this Denago Commuter one has been A-blast to ride. The acceleration is much more than I expected, and the bike is a solid bike to ride. I love the looks of it and enjoy the experience whenever I'm riding it. The customer service and follow up is phenomenal.

Insanely Cool addition to our Distillery Campus

Our distillery campus in the heart of Kentucky is a 100 acre 16-building facility. Our Denago has been invaluable in saving us time and energy getting around, building-to-building. It's quick, safe, and beloved by our employees and we plan to acquire more! Especially on those hot, humid summer days in Kentucky, the bike is perfect for short, quick trips or longer rides into town. Ease of use is great, rides smooth, and it is amazingly comfortable. We used to tool around in a golf cart or ATV, but this bike has quickly become the favorite way to get out to the rickhouses, over to bottling, or across our distillery campus. We can't wait to get more for our team!
