Bottom line

The Stride is GEN3’s hybrid commuter e-bike. It rocks a streamlined look, thanks in part to the battery being concealed within The Stride’s frame. A 500-watt motor puts out 900 peak watts and 65 newton meters of torque. Reportedly, this was plenty powerful, rocketing The Stride up hills even in lower assist levels. At times, owners found that this power could be overwhelming, especially if they were seeking pedal-powered exercise. Generally, The Stride was seen as a quality choice. In instances where parts were faulty, they were replaced quickly, with GEN3 reportedly sending out a mechanic for repairs. The Stride is priced affordably and is offered in one size to fit riders from 5’0” to 6’5”.
