The next entry in our weekly “Eco-Friendly Transportation” series is the much anticipated X-Treme XB-305Li!
The X-Treme XB-305Li Electric Mountain Bike is a terrific beginners, out-of-the-box electric bike. It’s identical to the XB-300Li, but with an easy access, step through frame. This is perfect for those of you who are looking for something a bit more accommodating.
Electric Bikes are also commonly referred to as E-Bikes; most are basically bicycles with electric motors used to power them. Mountain bikes are made specifically for off-road terrain, which includes unpaved roads, steep declines and dirt trails. This means these bicycles need to be built tough to withstand a myriad of outdoor obstacles. Mountain Bikes can be classified into four categories: Fully rigid, Hard tail, Soft tail, and Dual or Full Suspension. There are many types of racing competitions that feature these vehicles, most notably Cross-Country (XC) cycling. The XB-300Li is like a two for one!
This bike is perfect for commuters to campus of the workplace. The XB-305Li comes with a 300 watt hub motor that’s powered by cutting-edge, lightweight, lithium ion batteries. You can simply pedal without power for days when you feel like getting in some exercise. You could move by electric power only for days when you just need to get some place. Or simply pedal with power on demand.
The 300 watt electric motor comes in handy when you need to take a break or would like an extra boost of power. The XB-305Li electric bike comes with top-quality components like Lightweight Lithium Ion Batteries, a 7 Speed Shimano Tourney® Gear & Shifter System and RST Capa® T7 front hydraulic shocks for a smooth ride on or off-road. This baby can reach speeds up to 20 mph, and has a range of 15-20 miles.
The XB-350Li electric mountain bike also offers an impressive list of standard features, including; a front light, a fully adjustable seat, key ignition, horn, bell, battery indicator, rear cargo rack, smart charger, and a tool kit! One of the best things about this vehicle, is that the "electric bicycle" classification allows you to operate the XB-305Li without insurance, registration, or a driver's license in most states (please contact your local DMV and check local laws before purchase). The XB-305Li electric mountain bike is quiet, eco-friendly and costs only pennies a day to charge. There’s no better way to sidestep high prices at the pump!
