Euphree Stellar Falcon Electric Bike Review: A Versatile Commuter That Can Handle Off-Road Adventures

Stellar Falcon Step-Thru

The Euphree Stellar Falcon positions itself as a versatile electric bike that can double as both a commuter and an off-road rider. This blend of functionality in Euphree’s second model continues to impress, especially given the company’s focused approach to improving a single model year after year, akin to their first, the City Robin X+. Let’s delve into what makes the Stellar Falcon shine and whether it stands up to its claim as a potential “Fat Tire ebike killer.”

Stellar Falcon Video Review


Priced at $2,299, the Euphree Stellar Falcon offers a competitive value, balancing high-quality components and versatile performance for both commuting and off-road adventures. This price positions it as an attractive option for those seeking a premium electric bike without venturing into the higher cost typically associated with mid-drive models.

Design and Build

The Stellar Falcon is visually striking, and available in Crimson Red, Galaxy Blue, Black Cherry, and Onyx Black. It comes in two variants: a step-through and a mid-step, offering accessibility and a bit more rigidity, respectively. Weighing in at 72 lbs, it is lighter compared to many fat tire bikes which often tip the scales around 90 lbs. This makes it a viable option for those concerned about the bulk of traditional fat tire models.

Euphree Stellar Falcon Mid-Step and Step-Thru Comparison

Step-Through Frame

  • Accessibility: The step-through frame is designed for easy mounting and dismounting, which is particularly beneficial for riders who may find it challenging to swing their leg over a higher top tube. This feature makes it a great choice for riders with limited mobility, those who prefer riding in more restrictive clothing, or anyone looking for a more convenient entry and exit.
  • Standover Height: The standover height of the step-through model is 19 inches, which is lower than the mid-step, contributing to its accessibility.
  • Ideal Use: This frame style is typically favored for urban commuting and leisure rides where frequent stops might be required, or the ease of getting on and off the bike is a priority.
  • Recommended rider height: 5’0″ – 5’10”

Mid-Step Frame

  • Frame Rigidity: The mid-step frame offers increased frame rigidity compared to the step-through. This is due to the slightly higher top tube which provides additional structural integrity. This can result in a ride that feels more stable and responsive, especially at higher speeds or when navigating uneven terrain.
  • Standover Height: The mid-step has a standover height of 23 inches, which is still accessible but requires a bit more agility to mount and dismount compared to the step-through.
  • Ideal Use: The mid-step is well-suited for those who might venture off-road more frequently. The added frame rigidity can better handle the dynamic stresses of trails and rough terrains. It also appeals to those who prefer the aesthetic and feel of a more traditional bike frame while still enjoying the lower standover height than a full high-step frame.
  • Recommended rider height: 5’5″ – 6’4″

The only other difference between the two models is that the Stellar Falcon mid-step has a slightly longer stem than the step-thru, 110 mm vs 100 mm. The step-thru handlebars will be slightly closer to the rider though keep in mind they both sport adjustable stems to bring the handlebars up for a more upright riding position or forward for a more sporty riding position. Note that these handlebars are more standard handlebars with a slight rise, compared to the swept-back handlebars on the City Robin X+.

Shared Features

Both frame styles share the same technical specifications in terms of motor, battery, components, and color options. They are both designed to cater to the same weight limits and are equipped with the same high-quality components such as the hydraulic disc brakes, air suspension fork, and versatile tires suitable for various terrains.

Shorter riders should pay attention to the geometry measurements. Riders close to, or at 5′ tall might only be able to touch the ground with their tippy toes. Removing the suspension seatpost and replacing it with a rigid seat post can increase accessibility. Conversely, our 6′ tall rider felt comfortable on the step-thru even though Euphree notes riders up to 5′ 10″

Stellar Falcon Key Features and Components

  • Frame and Tires: The bike frames are robust, supporting a maximum payload of 350 lbs. It features Schwalbe Johnny Watts tires, 27.2 x 2.8 inches wide, which are not as wide as traditional fat tires but offer sufficient tread for off-road adventures. These tires strike a balance between reducing drag for longer range and providing enough grip for uneven terrain. Schwalbe is a respected name and it’s great to see them using a high-quality tire.
  • Brakes and Suspension: Two piston hydraulic disc brakes from Tektro with 180mm rotors ensure reliable stopping power. A highlight is the front air suspension fork from SR Suntour, adjustable to rider weight, enhancing comfort on rough trails.
  • Motor and Gearing: The bike is powered by a robust 750 watt motor from Bafang, peaking at 1200 watts. It includes a Shimano Altus 8-speed drivetrain (11-32T rear, 50T front), providing a wide range of gears for various terrains. Notably, the bike ships as a Class 3 ebike but can be adjusted to Class 2 or Class 1, offering flexibility depending on local regulations.
  • Battery and Range: The integrated 48V 15Ah battery is neatly concealed within the frame, maintaining the bike’s sleek look and promises a range of up to 70 miles on the lowest pedal-assist setting, though more realistic expectations should hover around 30 miles at higher speeds and frequent throttle use. We’re happy to see that Euphree incorporated a UL certified battery (UL 2271).

Performance and Ride Quality

The Stellar Falcon offers five pedal-assist levels and includes both a torque sensor and a cadence sensor, which can be toggled based on rider preference for a more customized riding experience. The torque sensor provides a more natural ride feel by amplifying rider effort smoothly. Within the display, riders can also turn on and off the throttle to change the Class.

Beyond the front suspension, the Euphree Stellar Falcon features an SR Suntour NCX suspension seatpost, enhancing comfort significantly by absorbing shocks and bumps. Additionally, the bike allows extensive customization of ride style through its advanced settings, where riders can adjust the timing (sensitivity) and intensity of power assist for each pedal-assist level, catering to individual preferences for a more tailored riding experience.

On and Off-Road Stellar Falcon Testing

During testing, the bike handled urban settings and off-road paths with ease, thanks to its versatile tires and responsive suspension. The throttle and pedal-assist systems are responsive, providing ample power for quick acceleration and hill climbs. We were thoroughly impressed with the motor power, though it is slightly louder than other hub drive ebikes.

The Altus derailleur leaves something to be desired especially at this price point. We hope when they refresh the Stellar Falcon they will go with a derailleur with a clutch which would cut down on the chain bouncing around on rougher terrain.

Stellar Falcon Additional Features

  • Lighting and Safety: It includes a bright front headlight (200 Lux) with side visibility, enhancing safety during nighttime rides. The rear light with brake signaling also adds to its safety features. Additionally, there is a strobe function which causes the both lights to flash which is great for daylight visibility.
  • Utility and Accessories: The bike comes equipped with metal fenders and a rear rack with a 55 lb capacity. Optional accessories like a front rack and rear basket increase its utility but do add to the cost.
  • Cable Management: The Euphree Stellar Falcon features hidden cable routing, enhancing the bike’s aesthetics and protecting the cables from external elements. Additionally, it offers SP Connect integration on the stem mount, allowing for secure smartphone attachment, facilitating easy access to navigation and fitness tracking while on the go.


The Euphree Stellar Falcon stands out in the crowded ebike market by offering a versatile, well-equipped package that caters to both commuters and adventure seekers. Its thoughtful design, combined with practical features and robust performance, makes it a compelling choice for those looking for a do-it-all ebike. Its capabilities as a “Fat Tire ebike killer” are well-founded, providing a lighter, more nimble alternative that doesn’t sacrifice on power or functionality. Whether you’re weaving through city streets or exploring rugged trails, the Stellar Falcon promises a reliable, exhilarating ride.

Euphree sells both online and is also available in over 120 bike shops. They offer US-based support so if you have any questions it’s worth giving them a call. It’s an easy brand for us to recommend here at Ebike Escape.
