PXCycle E-XC+ on Indiegogo: Most Powerful Urban Mountain eBike: PXCYCLE is an exclusive electric bike drivetrain technology bringing together the efficiency of a mid-drive motor with the convenience of an internal hub transmission. Portland-based PXCYCLE’s E-XC series of urban electric mountain bikes was already popular among electric vehicle enthusiasts. Now this bike shop is launching a new version of the e-bike that takes it another step further.
Models of PXCycle E-XC+ e-Bike
The PXCycle E-XC+ is available in a few different models with varying specs and accessory loadouts. They all include an urban mountain bike frame with front suspension, hydraulic disc brakes, and a mid-drive motor with a torque sensor for engaging pedal assist. The major differences between the models are the speed and power specs.
The entry-level PXCycle E-XC+ 250 has the lowest power limit pre-programmed into the motor, limiting it to 250W of power. The bike can reach a top speed of 20 mph in the US or 25 km/h in Europe. There’s no throttle, which keeps the bike classified as a Class 1 e-bike in the US and a street-legal e-bike in Europe. The bike sports a small-ish 36V 10Ah battery, though the range is still listed as up to 60 miles (96 km) thanks to the efficient pedal assist operation of this model.
On higher pedal assist settings though, expect to see lower range figures. The PXCycle E-XC+ 250 is currently available for $1,295, which is a 50% discount from its $2,590 MSRP. An additional $200 can upgrade you to the PXCycle E-XC+, which comes with a larger 36V 13Ah battery, integrated LED lighting and both a front and rear rack.
For those seeking more power and speed, the PXCycle E-XC+ 400 is priced at $1,595 and swaps in a 48V 10Ah battery that boosts the top speed up to 28 mph (45 km/h). This model peaks at 600W of power and also includes the built-in front and rear racks as well as the integrated LED lighting.
Anyone looking for the highest power will want to check out the PXCycle E-XC+ 600, which peaks at 850W of power and sports a 48V 14Ah battery. The bike also includes the same integrated LED lighting and front/rear racks as the previous “plus” models. All of the bikes can accept a throttle add-on for those that don’t want to be stuck pedaling 100% of the time. The bikes also sport backlit displays, 9-speed Shimano drivetrains, alloy pedals and all-terrain tires.
