We are very excited to be offering the Smartmotion brand of ebikes from New Zealand. They represent what could be considered the holy grail of ebike options. Both the X-City and the X-Urban provide mid drive motor performance as well as a manual throttle – the best of both worlds. Taking it yet one step further, they can be easily toggled between cadence sensing and torque sensing mode to maximize your riding experience in all varied conditions.
Power is provided via a Dapu 250 watt mid drive motor, an LG 576 WH battery, and a 9-speed drive train. Schwalbe Smart Sam hybrid tires allow a firm grip in all riding conditions and hydraulic disc brakes keep things under control. Front suspension, rear rack, lights, and fenders round out the accessory package.
The owner here at AEB rides an X-City and pulls a trailer with a 160lb. Great Dane onboard daily. We’ve also put it through its paces on some local mtn. bike trails and it performed flawlessly. These two scenarios highlight the advantage of having both cadence and torque sensing available on demand. This bike is a capable rig!
If you’re looking for the benefits of a low step mid drive-equipped bike but still want the capability of a manual throttle, and you’d like a 28 mph speed pedelec as well all for a reasonable $2999, the Smartmotion X-City could be the bike for you.
