The Model C is a classic electric cruiser, offering an incredibly comfortable ride. It is built-to-order, 100% customizable, and comes fully assembled and ready to ride. The Model C frame is hydro-formed with 6061 aircraft-grade aluminum, all cables are discretely threaded within the frame, and with a base primer, 3 coats of paint, and 2 coats of clear sealant, it's the coolest looking cruiser on the market today.
The Model C has been named the top-rated electric cruiser by Electric Bike Review (EBR) in 2018, 2019 and 2020 (see the EBR review below).
The 500W rear hub motor on the Model C is capable of delivering a maximum output of 1250W, giving this bike incredible hill-climbing ability. The motor is paired with a removable 48V/11.6Ah battery w/ Samsung lithium-ion cells, a rear light and internal charging system. But if you need more range per charge, you can upgrade the battery to 17Ah, and even add a front basket battery.
The Model C can be ridden like a convention bike, with a single-speed drivetrain or the optional 7-speed Shimano gears. When you need a boost, just turn on the pedal assist system, and the motor will power you up the steepest inclines. Need a break from pedaling? Just give the right-side thumb throttle a push, and you can cruise around, no pedaling required.
The Model C features Tektro Dorado hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm rotors front and rear, offering incredible stopping power. The 4-piston calipers allow for single-finger braking, and there are automatic motor cutoffs that cut power to the motor when you engage the brake levers.
Every Electric Bike Company bike comes with integrated front and rear safety lights, and if you add a front basket, it will come with dual lights as well.
