Cannondale’s Tesoro Neo Carbon: A Light E-Bike for Urban Commuting

December 3, 2023
1 min read

The Tesoro Neo Carbon is a highly-regarded urban e-bike, with its design taking inspiration from Cannondale’s Synapse road bike. It features a lightweight carbon frame and internally routed cables for a sleek look. The bike tips the scales at approximately 16 kg (35 lb), though the specific frame size for this weight isn’t specified.

The bike is equipped with a 250-W Bosch Performance Line SX mid-drive motor, providing pedal-assist up to 27 km/h (16.7 mph). It’s paired with a 400-Wh PowerTube battery, and there’s an option to add a 250-Wh range extender, although specific range estimates per charge aren’t provided by Cannondale.

The Tesoro Neo Carbon comes in two variants: the Carbon 1 and Carbon 2. The Carbon 1 model includes an electronic SRAM X1 Eagle AXS drivetrain with 12 gears, while the Carbon 2 features a mechanical SRAM Apex Eagle drivetrain, also with 12 gears.

Both models are fitted with 37 mm wide Vittoria Terreno Zero tires, a Lezyne Hecto StVZO E65 headlight, aluminum mudguards with an integrated rear light and pannier holder, and a Selle Royal Vivo Active Ergo saddle.

The bike also boasts an alloy flatbar with ergo grips, pannier mounts, front and rear lighting, and alloy fenders.

The Tesoro Neo Carbon 2 is priced at €4,999, and the Tesoro Neo Carbon 1, which features a higher-end drivetrain, is priced at €5,899. These prices apply to the European market, as the bike is a Europe-only release.

Experts praise the bike for its lightweight design, with the combination of carbon frame and fork and the new Bosch drive unit weighing only 4 kg. However, it’s noted that the battery is integrated into the frame and not removable for charging.

The operation of the drive system is integrated with Bosch’s System Controller in the top tube and the Mini Remote on the handlebars, providing a tidy cockpit without a traditional display.

The Tesoro Neo Carbon is seen as a successor to the Cannondale Quick Neo EQ, known for its powerful motorization and light weight.
