Stromer ST5 Video Review – $10k Fast, Powerful, Silent Electric Bike The Stromer ST5 is one of the fastest accelerating, yet quietest, most technologically advanced electric bikes on the market today, seamless battery integration, hidden wires, pressure-sensitive touch screen with anti-theft and GPS tracking. Custom motor tuning via iOS and Android app, peak motor torque output of 48 Nm and 800+ watts, electronic shifting with Shimano Di2 and XTR derailleur with clutch (to reduce chain bounce), narrow-wide chainring to reduce drops. Large 203 mm hydraulic disc brakes from TRP designed to cool fast, both brake levers activate bright mode for the rear light as well as recoup, five levels of recoup to simulate hills or recharge the battery on long descents. Sturdy tubular alloy fenders with optional cargo rack, custom Pirelli tires, antishock seat post, premium Ergon grips and saddle, 4.5 amp fast charger with magnetic plug, bluetooth auto-locking and unlocking, relatively heavy at 66.5 lbs and very expensive at 10-grand.

Bruce Ballad says:

wow *$10k*?! I like them but, as long as they don’t make their prices more considerable, they are destined to fail in becoming a norm.
He was like “It is $10k. You don’t have this and this and this and this. But it’s cool..” for the whole video.
I don’t know. Maybe they want to be like Apple of Bike market. I mean, an annoyingly limited but powerful quality built brand.

TroyArn says:

10g. Good luck with that. It’s worth 2.5. 3 tops.

Eugene Moore says:

Does the ST5 have throttle?


yo tuve una mala experiencia con stromer, cuando german giraldo distribuidor en bogota me vendi’o una de esas, desde luego no hablo de este modelo, yo le compré una st1 platinum por 3000 us precio de distribuidor, y esa bicicleta me salió de mala calidad, bogota en una ciudad donde llueve mucho y muy fuerte, la bicicleta en lluvia muy fuerte se apaga, al aprecer se le mojaba algo y se apagaba, yo la usaba apara distancias largas para ir atrabajar ya que el trafico en bogota es horrible, demasiados carros, pero muy decepcionante las fallas que tuvo esa bicicleta, el señor german giraldo ahora distribuidor de sttealth no me ha resuelto el problema con la stromer, esta es la hora que me debe los 3000 us y no me los ha devuelto, pero lo que mas me pone triste es saber que compré una bicicleta stromer tan cara y que salió tan de mala calidad. sumado a eso no recomiendo comprar stromer si en el pasi de origen no hat representante o tienda oficial de la marca porque para conseguir repuestos y garantia es un problema, resulta uno pagando los envios de ida y vuelta e impuestos, realmente fue un verdadero problema esa compra y lo peor que el distribuidor german giraldo desde hace dos años no responde por ese dinero….

Stayshtum68 says:

This bike looks absolutely stunning,I love the way you don’t see any cables. But the price is just ludicrous. I would love one of these but it would take me years to save up for it. Damn I hate being so poor.

Ja sam says:

Do they want to be Apple of the ebike world? Removing thing that we need, adding proprietary stuff that is unserviceable, and then doubling the price? They will be rolling in money when Apple users start to ride ebikes.

James Mason says:

Nice bike but it should be for 10k

bikee4 says:

For not much more you can have Alta…

Flo Mo says:


Joe Shmoe says:

No possible way this is worth $10,000

Eugene Moore says:

Nope, way to much money. I built my own that can fly by this Stromer. Sure its totally refined.

Dog Toy says:

This is the Iphone of Bikes- pay more get less.
Whoever buys this is an absolute idiot

Cloud Base says:

My Stromer ST2 was 7500 a lot of money I road it 48 miles each way to work. Charged 2x per day. I saved 5 dollars each day in bridge tolls. The bike just turned 14,000 miles. This bike works day in and day out. Unlike all the home built haters. Maybe should ride the bike. No rad is going 14,000 miles. If you want a cheep Chinese bike get a Juiced bike at least they are in factory keeping quality to a higher level. Then kickstart or indigo go junk. Throttle dies in first rain, motor controller dead in 6 months.

10 a C e bikes Jody Bennett II says:

they spent money on wheels grips motor battery the places where it is important I was like wow 10k is screwing people till the review nice bike love it might replace my car lol

Rotormatic says:

Regarding point at 1:59, this European Commission cycling safety page says that reflective sidewalls are permitted and required if no spoke reflectors are used.

Can anyone cross check this?

agrawal gamer says:

Plz upload the video about e-bike conversion kit and installation

Edward Villarreal says:

Are there any electric bikes based on a touring bike, like an electric version of a Surly Disk Trucker or Kona Sutra?

david urban says:

When are you going to review VanMoof products? Next time you’re in Brooklyn go to their store. I’ve got one and like it.

nastythomashobbs says:

I just bought the ST2. It is a total blast. I had a Bosch powered bike. That 20 mph wall makes it not a fun street bike. Great Mountain bike though. The Stromer just corners so well. Such a quality bike. Expensive but a very fun toy. You get to come down those massive hills you climb so hitting 60 mph downhill is so much fun.

James Summerfield says:

One detail I cant find online: what’s the S mode? How is it different from mode 3?

IfingerblastGranny's says:

So right at the start he is pretty much declaring the brown envelope has been handed over at the wanted/agreed fee and this review will be excellent no matter what…….$10k :/

phuck ewe says:

My grand parents bought their first house for $11K.
They are rolling in their grave right now.

hydrator1 says:

way to much money………..

dee long says:

Too high for that piece of shit.. vould make for 1500

Stefanie VanderLaag says:

Fantastic bike. Very elegant. Would love to see a side by side test someday against the similarly priced Riese & Muller Delite Rohloff with full suspension and dual battery. Ride them both 100 miles in one day.

Kevin Semones says:

This bike cost more then my used car… Lol. Surprised by the hub motor. I thought the middrives were more premium.

Emad Moussa says:

As much as I love e-bikes, there’s no way I’d pay nearly 10K for one. And, believe me, I can afford it. Technology and great features would in total cost, worst case scenario, 2K bucks. You, however, would pay 8K more for ego, brand, and pretentiousness.
