8 Reasons to Buy the Union 1

  • Minimalist design
  • Has an integrated rear rack and fenders.
  • Designed for rapid acceleration (even in Eco mode)
  • Comes with powerful Bosch technology systems
  • Has a respectable range for fully loaded traveling
  • Riding is made easy with a simple, intuitive display
  • Comes with strong Tektro stoppers and dependable Deore shifting
  • The extra weight may act as a barrier to theft

5 Reasons Not to Buy the Union 1

  • Weighs a lot (51 pounds)
  • Might be challenging to manage in crowded areas
  • Does not suit riders under the height of 5' 6"
  • Deore shifting is loud and rough, and Tektro stoppers lack finesse
  • Comes with budget cockpit parts that add weight

Bottom Line

The Union 1 is a great addition to the Diamondback line with its stellar performance and some amazing commuter-friendly features. However, for someone who is new to e-biking, it might be a bit difficult to get into muscle memory because of its heavy weight and some budget-minded components.
