Another remarkable model has been included in the electric bike market. A Colorado-based startup, Ristretto has launched its Ristretto 303 FS, the most powerful bikes on the market, with a unique rear suspension that provides steering stability and performance. The 303FS model allows you to enhance the power of the motor for maximum speed.
One of the most striking aspects of this Ristretto 330 FS is its appearance, which is much more like an electric motorcycle with pedals than a bicycle. The arrangement of the saddle, the frame itself, and the wheels help that at first glance, we can be confused. But no, this is an eBike that has a lot to offer.
The model, which has a retro line and blends the old and the new beautifully, is ready for all road conditions with its 26-inch Teravail Coronado fat-bike tires. It has a flat seat that emphasizes the fine but retro line and carries disc brakes at the front and rear and suspensions that bring high comfort.
The Ristretto 303 FS features a custom-designed, 3,500-watt CYC mid-drive motor. Drivers can choose between two driving modes – Street Legal Mode that does not exceed 28 mph (45 km/h), and Race Mode, which goes a little further up to 40 mph (64 km/h).
The 52-volt/17.5-Ah, Panasonic lithium-ion battery, mounted in a down tube, offers a range of 35-55 miles (56-89 km) per charge – of course, depending on the riding mode and electrical assistance level selected. It can be fully charged in 5 to 6 hours.
In addition to its beautiful aluminum frame, the 303 FS offers a Shimano 11-speed drivetrain, a waterproof LCD screen with Bluetooth connection to view data on speed, speed, or battery life, includes a set of front and rear LED lights and Wotefusi front and rear suspension. The bike weighs 84 lbs (38 kg) in total and carries a driver up to 325 lbs (147 kg).
The 303 FS offers an integrated app that has GPS capabilities providing motor customization, allowing for a truly personalized experience catering to your unique riding style.
The Ristretto 303 FS Founders Edition is being manufactured in a limited-edition run of 500 units that you already have available on Indiegogo at a starting price of $3,099, with the full retail price is $3,920. The shipping estimated in October.
