- One user says the 1050-lumen headlight is very bright.

4 reasons not to buy

- The taillight isn’t integrated and runs off external batteries, disappointing several reviewers.

Juiced Bikes RipCurrent S Step-Thru! (Complete Review)
For the price, Juiced offers… much more performance on and off trail for the rider that wants to do more than get from A to B. For bikes with a hub motor, this is probably the best spec bicycle you’ll find in a step-through frame.
