Simplicity and elegance are two of the defining features of the Model Y step-through Electric Cruiser. So too are power and comfort.
The Model Y beach cruiser, with its bespoke colorways and hidden battery and cables, is simply one of the most stylish electric bicycles on the market today.
Like other beach cruisers from Electric Bike Co., the Model Y is highly customizable. You can select to include the standard 48V/10.5Ah battery, which is discretely hidden in the front basket, or a dual battery configuration for twice the range per charge. You can select a single-speed direct drivetrain, or a 7-speed rear derailleur. You can choose the standard rigid fork or upgrade to a suspension fork for greater shock absorption. You can also add a rear rack with dual pannier bags and the MIK mounting system, and other accessories, including handmade cherry wood and walnut fenders and chain guard with stainless steel and brass mounting hardware.
However you configure your Model Y, rest assured you will be getting an ebike that is both comfortable to ride, with its wide cruiser-style handlebars, and a powerful hill climber.
The Model Y also features hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm rotors front and rear for authoritative stopping power, and an automatic motor cutoff system, to prevent you from powering the motor while engaging the brakes.
