Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Electra Vale Go!. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

13 reasons to buy

  • The Vale Go! is available in four colorways and two builds: 9D EQ (Class 1) and 9D EQ S (Class 3).
  • Experts enjoy the “very comfortable” riding position.
  • Multiple testers praise the smooth ride, thanks to the suspension seatpost and “plush” 2.4” tires.
  • Reviewers compliment the “sleek” and “classy” appearance.
  • Electra includes a 4A fast charger with the Vale Go!.
  • The pedal assist from both Bosch motors is “smooth” and “intuitive.”
  • In testing, reviewers achieve 55 to 60 miles of range “without sparing the motor.”
  • An expert says the stiffness of the frame gives the bike a “sturdy and responsive” feel.
  • The Bosch app offers features like ride tracking, heart rate monitoring, and turn-by-turn navigation.
  • The Bosch motors have shift detection, which reduces power while shifting in order to reduce drivetrain wear.
  • An expert claims the Tektro hydraulic disc brakes are “fantastic.”
  • Electra includes a MIK-compatible rack, lights, fenders, and a chainguard.
  • Experts value the widespread dealer network for convenient repairs.

7 reasons not to buy

  • The Vale Go! is only available in one size and one frame style (step-through).
  • Experts describe the Active Plus 50Nm motor (Vale Go! 9D EQ) as “underwhelming,” especially in Eco and Tour modes, lacking power for steep climbs.
  • One reviewer laments the wide turning radius.
  • The front and rear wheel axles require different-sized hex wrenches.
  • One tester feels a “klunk” when they stop pedaling at faster speeds.
  • Experts complain that battery removal is difficult due to the position of the lock and the tight fit.
  • A tester says adding a bottle cage could interfere with mounting and dismounting safely.

Bottom line

The Electra Vale Go! is a step-through cruiser available with one of two Bosch motors: Active Plus 50Nm (9D EQ) or Performance Line Sport 65Nm (9D EQ S). Testers of the 9D EQ consider it underpowered, especially at the lower levels of pedal assist. Additionally, they rue the one-size-fits-all frame and tricky battery removal. Otherwise, the Vale Go! earns praise for its sleek design, smooth, comfortable ride, “intuitive” Bosch drive, solid battery range, and “fantastic” brakes. Experts agree that, though expensive, the Electra Vale Go! is a solid choice for a comfortable commuter or leisure e-bike. But those wanting power should consider the Class 3 (28mph) 9D EQ S build.
