It has been 7 years since my life changed thanks to an Xtracycle attachment. I bravely pedaled it home for install on another bike by strapping it to a rear rack. Little did I know that I soon would be selling my car and really embracing the car-lite mentality for a couple of years to the Xtracycle! Fast forward to 2015 and Xtracycle has a full line up of bikes and accessories to help you live an active lifestyle and in whatever form you may make it!
Xtracycle’s 2016 product line up is broken into two categories, electric models and standard bike models without the electric assist. This article is focused on their new and expanding line of Xtracycle Edgerunner Electric models. Below is a cliff-note version from Xtracycle’s latest catalog which you can find here.
2016 Edgerunner Electric Bikes
The maintenance-free Bosch electric drive instantaneously delivers a 50%-275% boost whenever you want it with an exceptional 60Nm of available torque. You’ll be able to bike up hills faster than ever, even when carrying heavy loads. The multiple sensors of the intelligent, mid-drive motor harmonically integrate your pedaling to provide just the right amount of assist. And the Bosch lithium-ion battery gives you a range of 20-80 miles. It’s fully charged and ready to ride in 3.5 hours (50% in 1.5 hours). The Bosch Intuvia console shows your range, speed, and distance traveled while supporting USB charging and onboard lighting. The handlebar mounted remote lets you select the level of assist. Ride like the wind.
Xtracycle Edgerunner Electric 10e MSRP: $5,749
It’s the ultimate cargo bike. The Xtracyle EdgeRunner 10e features a 10-speed Shimano Deore drivetrain mated with a Bosch Performance line motor that aids your pedaling up to speeds of 20 miles per hour. Deore hydraulic brakes, a heavy duty e-bike chain, a burly FSA DH Pro Headset, Ergon grips, and puncture-resistant Schwalbe Big Ben slick tires round out the package.
Xtracycle Edgerunner Electric 8e MSRP: $4,999
The comfortable 8e features a low step-over height and an upright riding position. The 8-speed Shimano drivetrain coupled with the potent Bosch Performance Line mid-drive motor will help you quickly and efficiently ride up any hill. Disc brakes stop you in any weather on the way down, and wide tires absorb road shock. Ride to believe.
