The TENWAYS awards cabinet is chock-full of accolades from renowned and trusted magazines, platforms and associations. These independent institutions have thoroughly tested out our CGO600 and CGO800S e-bikes, putting them through their paces and finding them to be excellent performers. Read on for the experts' verdicts!
Awards for CGO600
It's fair to say that we were delighted when Expert Reviews named CGO600 as E-bike of the Year in 2022! This authoritative product buying guide has an excellent track record of 30+ years of expert reviewing, and is a trusted source of information for savvy consumers. Reviewer Richard was especially impressed by its light weight, sporty handling and natural-feeling ride, calling the torque-sensing system "a joy to use".
Germany's ElektroRad Magazine is part of the Radfahren group of publications, the go-to information source for thousands of German-speaking cyclists. They recently published the results of their major 2023 e-bike test, with reviewers putting 91 e-bikes of varying types through real-life road tests. In the Urban Bikes category, CGO600 was awarded 89 points out of a possible 100, and was judged above all to be fun, with a quiet rear motor and stress-free, low-maintenance riding experience for daily use.
Awards for CGO800S
Our Dutch-style city comfort e-bike, CGO800S, unsurprisingly saw a great reception with testers in the Netherlands, where a step-through frame, upright cycling position and practical accessories are familiar features to generations of this cycling nation.
The Royal Dutch Touring Club ANWB has many decades of experience in testing cycles, having been initially founded in 1883! CGO800S was a must-have in its list of e-bikes under €2,250, with all bikes in the list undergoing a rigorous and standardized testing process. Indeed, it was picked out as "Most Beautiful Bike" in the list, described as a "Design pearl, especially for the city"!
Fietstest.nl is a resource dedicated to presenting its readers with advice and guidance for buying e-bikes, based on the information submitted by a panel of over 1,900 independent testers. Electric school bikes were put to the test for their 2023 listing, with CGO800S coming in at number 1 on the list. High points for the reviewing panel were its fresh design, smooth and powerful support, and that it is easy to ride even without power assistance.
What our riders say
It's not only the experts that have tested out our bikes – the growing family of Tenwayers love to share their views, too! We can't shout-out everyone here, but comments such as this, from Nick W. talking about his CGO600, say it better than we could ourselves: "I've never looked more forward to commuting in the last 10 years." Darek K. bought the CGO800S for his wife, and reported, "Very good design, very well packaged for shipping and easy to put together. Relaxing riding like bicycling supposed to be." We're so glad that Tenwayers around the world are rediscovering the joy of cycling with TENWAYS!
