Checkout this Relay Review from Somercycle Bikes!
May 22, 2023


Josh Harris at Somercycle Bikes gave the Relay a longterm review and really broke down the importance of the Relay being a "two-bikes-in-one" machine. Be sure to check out his video above and follow long for some of his highlighted points!

"Game changer" is how he starts his review with the Relay's possibility of running it as a powered or non powered option. With a focus on the "takeout battery", the creator rode a handful of destinations in the South East some of which are legal for e-bikes and some are not. Starting in his hometown, Knoxville, TN, he rides Baker Creek, a local pedal bike park with the battery in. Mixing between river and rocket modes, he rides 25 miles, and finishes with two bars of battery left. 


Along with finding the battery's range at Baker Creek, he also experiments a different day by pedaling the same park without the battery and ends up getting a personal record on one of the climbs. 


Another riding location close to home is Kanuga Bike Park, which is a pedal assisted bike park, where he does multiple park laps before going to the close by Dupont State Forest. Dupont is illegal for e-bikes so he removes the battery and goes for a 10 mile pedal on Burn Mountain to ride more technical rough trails.


He prefers the Relay for all of his riding because he isn't dealing with the "unwieldy weight" of a high powered e-bike. In his video he weighs the Relay with the battery in and out. With the battery in it comes in at 42 pounds while out it comes in a little over 36 pounds. He states because of the bikes weight "the on trail ride feel is more powerful than what paper suggests," so the motor doesn't have to work as hard.


At 5'9" the reviewer chose the size medium Relay with a 460mm reach which he feels fits perfect for his needs. He was also super excited on the performance of SRAM's new T-Type and Code RSC brakes and the build in general.


His review concludes with an emphasis on this bike being a "one stop shop for a lot of riders". By experiencing the Relay on both his mild home trails, as well as longer burlier days, he believes that the Relay is competent at performing in a variety of areas both for powered and non powered adventures.
