Emojo Breeze at a Glance

From a distance, the Emojo Breeze beach cruiser will flatter you with its seamless frame and effortlessly blending multicolor design, which according to the manufacturer, complements the high-performance specifications on the bike. But I know you’ll need more convincing than that, so let us take a deeper look at the individual features:

FRAME

I was naturally attracted to the simple yet sleek appearance of the Emojo Breeze. It features an easy-to-mount step-through frame design with a touch of light blue, orange, and brown shades blending almost effortlessly. Luckily, beauty goes beyond skin-deep on the Emojo Breeze! Underneath the dreamy look lies a strong and durable steel alloy frame. 

This makes for stable and comfortable handling on the trail although I must confess that the steel does add some weight to the overall feel of the bike. Thanks to the short stand-over height, I had a breeze getting on and off the bike, and the Breeze came to its own when I took it for a test ride on the tarmac.

I loved the upright riding geometry, which takes away the weight from the upper body and pelvis areas to save you back pains and prevent fatigue on the arms. The U-shaped handlebars offer easy access to the controls and the super soft and plush saddle had me feeling comfortable throughout the ride.

Another thing I liked is the 26-inch tires, which not only rolled smoothly on the road but also swallowed the few potholes and bumps I encountered for an easy and hassle-free riding experience!

ENGINE

The Emojo Breeze electric cruiser is propelled by a powerful 500-watt DC brushless motor that produces enough torque to get you up hills and ascents without breaking a sweat. You’ll have the kind of head start you want for whenever you’re running late for an appointment. 

I must point out the intuitive pedal-assist system of the Breeze that automatically chips in the moment you start pedaling. A class 2 thumb throttle on the handlebar will cover you whenever you don’t feel like pedaling, ensuring that the ride doesn’t come to a stop even when you’re literally not moving a muscle!

The pedal-assist system also features three different assist levels to make for customizable riding experiences. You get to choose from Eco, Normal, and Power modes depending on how you fancy your ride. On Power mode, the motor will get you to a top speed of 20mph, which is pretty swift for a beach cruiser. 

Lastly, the brushless motor runs stealthily and you won’t be a nuisance to pedestrians as you whizz past them on the streets! The only issue is that the rear hub motor, when combined with the weight of the steel frame may slightly throw off your balance if you don’t give it enough attention. 

BATTERY

This bike is equipped with a 36V 10.4Ah lithium-ion battery to complement the power of the DC motor. The Samsung battery pack offers more than enough range on the cruiser. You get to enjoy up to 28 miles of riding on a single charge cycle, which is just what you need to run all your errands in town and still go back home with some charge to spare.

With all this range, it also means that you don’t have to carry a charger if you use the bike to commute to work or school. 

I like how the battery sits behind the seat post and under the saddle, which leaves enough wriggling room for your legs when you ride. This also comes in handy when you want to carry an extra battery for those endless trips. 

The battery pack is also removable and lockable to assure you of its security when you leave the bike unmanned while also allowing for convenience when you want to replace it as it charges. Last thing to note; it will take around 4-6 hours for the battery to fully charge when it's completely empty!

BRAKES

The Emojo Breeze uses front and rear tektro disc brakes, which grant the right amount of braking power and efficiency you want on an electric cruiser. I had an easy time bringing the ride to a stop, even on slippery sections of the road. The brake levers also worked smoothly and it didn’t take much effort to operate them.

This leaves you with ample rider confidence when speeding down the busy city streets because you know the brakes won’t let you down. 

TIRES & RIMS

The 26-inch Kenda rims provide enough strength and durability to accommodate your weight without feeling wobbly. They are not just stable, their subtle blue color mixes well with the orange on the tires to enhance the aesthetic qualities of the Emojo Breeze.

This bike rides on huge 26” Kenda tires that roll smoothly on the surface and keep you comfortable even on bouncy rides. I liked how stable they felt and how much they add to the handling of the bike. In short, you won’t be complaining when you come across bumps and potholes on the road!



What Do I Like About The Emojo Breeze?

The first thing that stands out about the Emojo Breeze is its sleek design. Its colors are particularly charming and perfectly complement the seamless step-through frame design.

The 500W brushless motor delivers enough power on climbs while working stealthily and efficiently. It also pairs well with the intuitive pedal-assist system for easily manageable riding experience.


The bike’s geometry enables for an upright riding position that keeps you comfortable throughout the ride and this is reinforced by the plush and super soft saddle. I also like the inclusion of urban-friendly accessories like the full-length fenders.

For an electric beach cruiser, the 28 miles per charge range is more than you’ll require to run all your errands in town or commute to and from school/work without needing to charge the battery.

Finally, the 26” Kenda tires are huge and this allows them to roll smoothly on the road while remaining stable even on less than decent road conditions.

PROS

  • Powerful motor
  • Long riding range
  • Charming design
  • Comfortable
  • Excellent quality brakes considering the price range

What I Don’t Like About The Breeze?


My main concern on the Emojo Breeze has to be weight balance! The frame of the bike already uses a weighty steel alloy in its construction and the rear hub motor tends to shift the weight of the bike to the back. Not only that, but the battery has also been positioned towards the rear end of the bike, meaning you have too much weight at the back and this tends to affect your handling.

Cons

  • Poor weight distribution
  • Price



Advice to Buyers

Those who want to get their hands on the Emojo Breeze won’t have to break the bank. The electric cruiser costs just under $1500, which is a decent price considering the overall quality of the bike. I feel that all the features complement one another nicely to leave you with a practical battery-powered two-wheeler that will work great during your commute.

In summary, it is an affordable electric bike that offers a great bang for the buck!

Conclusion

The Emojo Breeze electric cruiser has all the makings of a great urban bike. It is easy to look at, offers long-range riding, and has the speed to ensure that you’re always on time for your daily appointments. Whether you decide to use it for your daily commute or keep it for laid-back cycling tours over the weekend, you can’t go wrong with the Emojo Breeze!
