Crow launches full e-bike range, including a stealthy gravel set-up with removable drive systems

You can now buy Gravital e-bikes directly from the Spanish brand Crow Bicycles after they were previously only available through the IndieGoGo crowdfunding site. The gravel, city and road bikes all have removable Fazua Ride 50 Trail drive systems, so you can ride with or without assistance, and prices start at £ 3,240.

We treated Crow a few times last year, first when it plagued photos of its new bikes and then when it sought funding for what it called “the world’s first crowdfunded electric gravel bike.”

All Crow Gravital bikes share Fazua’s removable Ride 50 Trail electrical system that was announced last September. It has a maximum torque of 58Nm and 250W of power. You can ride either model as an e-bike or as a conventional non-assisted bike that weighs 3 kg lighter

Crow has three different gravel e-bike platforms: the carbon Gravital UL and the aluminum Gravital SL – both with drop bars – and the Gravital Risbar SL, which is aluminum and features a riser handlebar.

There is also a 1x GRX 800 (£ 5,082) model, and two Campagnolo Ekar options, the top level (£ 7,885, main photo) with a claimed weight of just over 13 kg (28.7lb).

Crow recently closed its first investment round with a capital increase of € 300,000 (about £ 258,000) and says it’s aiming to fill the gap between traditional bikes and standard electric bikes [and] is focused on ultra-light e-bikes, delivering the best riding experience and maximum performance with or without assistance.
