eBike Tips Reviews The Coniston
Verdict: Good value leisure e-MTB with suitably functional spec
Like all Dallingridge models (the brand also has a folder and a trekking model), the Coniston is aimed at the budget market but seeks to give a good sensible spec for the money that performs well - and it largely succeeds.
Pros and cons As you might expect, the spec is budget but highly functional. The geared rear hub motor uses cadence sensing only (no throttle), rather than the pricier and more refined torque sensing power system, but it works well and picks up pretty soon after pedalling (unlike some other budget systems which can take several seconds to ‘realise’ that you are pedaling and want some motor power).
