Which Carva model is right for me?
That depends on what you want to get out of it. If you plan to ride around your neighborhood and you live in a relatively flat area, then the Carva S1 should serve you well. If you live in an area with moderate terrain then you might consider a Carva S7. The Carva SV would be for those that wish to tackle more hilly terrain or simply want the versatility of a continuously variable drivetrain. If you're shooting for long distances and are not sure whether you can make it back on your own, the Carva SE provides the option to power you the rest of the way.
