Batribike has been fitting the Datatag security marking system to all of its electric bikes since early 2014. Batribike listened to the concerns of customers. It is very easy to understand those concerns when you realise that an electric bike is a considered purchase. Batribike decided that something could be done to give more peace of mind and chose to partner with industry leader, Datatag.
The partnership has proved to work well. Latest stats from Datatag show that less than 0.002% of Batribike electric bikes that have had their Datatags registered, have been reported stolen.
We do believe that Datatag Stealth Pro System acts as a very real theft deterrent, something that is borne out by insurance companies, who give a discount for bikes fitted with this system.
We have owned the Diamond for six years now and it has given excellent service, the battery only just having failed.
The bike has been ridden extensively on hilly terrain which it copes easily with.
The only criticism is with the lighting system, the headlight is really only use to other road users as a marker light, not being powerful enough to see by.
All in all, an excellent machine!
Bike miles 2005-2016 – Zero.
Bike miles 1st to 13th April 2017 (first two weeks ownership) – 50!
Like so many reviewers here, at 70 and defeated by the surrounding hills, I thought my cycling days were over. The Omega has put me back on the saddle, and combined with the warm start to April, has reawakened my pleasure in seeing the countryside from the unique perspective of a bike. It’s probably making me fitter, too, but I’m not making any premature claims! I’m not back to 25 miles a day, yet, but I am getting there.
This is not a technical review. Any prospective purchaser will have plenty of those to go through on line. In short, I concluded that Batribikes had build quality, customer satisfaction and technical features at the right price for me. I chose the Omega because the 26″ wheels, step through frame and 7 gear combination suited me and, after trying one, the design and comfort suited me too. Others will have their own preferences.
No, this review is just to say, “Yee-hah! Back in the saddle again!” The power assistance flattens the hills without giving me a free ride, the fresh air and scenic immersion is all the better for the years of deprivation, and well – just go out and get one.

The Batribike stand has been receiving a lot of attention at the London Bike Show.
Thursday was trade and press day and we were pleased to welcome Dave Atkinson from the electric bike focussed website ebiketips.
The Batribike Perdu and Quintessential really caught his eye and we are delighted that they are two of the bikes in his list of five hot ebikes at the show. He also gave the title of “Current winner in the ‘hide the battery’ competition” to the Perdu.
The hidden battery systems we are using in these two bikes have been the subject of many complements at the show and to feature as two of the hot five has made the whole Batribike team vey proud.
