BikeRide finds and shows you the best prices of the bikes you want to buy. Prices constantly change and it’s impossible to compare them all yourself.

We search for prices on over 120 bike retailers to guarantee that we find the lowest prices – to save you time and money.

It’s a promise we stand behind: If you find a lower price on a bike elsewhere, we will sell it to you for 10% less. For example, if you find a bike for $480 that we have listed at $500, we will offer you to buy it for $432 through BikeRide. The bike must be the same color and size, sold in the US and not include the use of a coupon.

If you find a lower price, email us at [email protected] with documentation of the price. We’re committed to making sure that the cost of a bike does not keep you from cycling!

Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Magnum Vertex. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

8 reasons to buy

  • Testers highlight the bike’s versatility for commuting or light off-roading.
  • Reviewers praise the “responsive” pedal assist.
  • Experts enjoy how the Vertex “feels and responds” like a non-electric bike.
  • The Vertex strikes a “great balance between comfort and control.”
  • On paved terrain, a 150lb tester achieves 58 miles using PAS 1 and 31 miles using max assist.
  • The Vertex performs well in hill tests, achieving above-average performance under pedal assist and throttle power.
  • Testers welcome the inclusion of a thumb throttle on a mid-drive e-bike.
  • The plus-size 2.8” CST tires offer “plenty of grip” and “confidence” off-road.

4 reasons not to buy

  • The Vertex isn’t suitable for “dedicated mountain bikers” and is best kept to “mellower trails.”
  • Experts feel the Tektro hydraulic disc brakes lack stopping power for proper off-road use.
  • Testers note that riders at the extremes of the Magnum’s listed height range (5’5” to 6’2”) may not fit.
  • Experts say the bike lacks “adjustability,” with just 8.5 inches of seatpost adjustment and a fixed handlebar height and reach.

Bottom line

The Magnum Vertex is a “versatile” e-bike equally suitable for commuting and light off-roading. Reviewers enjoy the “striking visual design,” ride comfort, hill-climbing ability, and “responsive” power that feels like riding a non-electric bike. However, limited adjustability may deter riders at the extremes of the stated height range. Overall, reviewers appreciate the component quality at this price. They feel the bike’s versatility is both its strength and weakness, as it’s “capable across most types of terrain” but lacks the performance for proper mountain bike trails.

Magnum Vertex Review, 2024

The Vertex may not meet the needs of dedicated mountain bikers who need top-shelf (and therefore costly) components and a full suspension, but for an entry-level eMTB, it does the job well.

Mid-Drive E-Bike With Throttle? Magnum Bikes Vertex

… this mid-drive bike has a thumb throttle… so you can get that feel of the mid-drive motor, but if you need a little bit of a boost you don’t have to pedal.
