Electric bicycle market continues to grow without slowing down. We see a number of bicycles with a lot of modifications and wilder designs almost every day in the market.
Now, the latest model UBCO FRX1 Freeride Trail Bike is also breathtaking with its technical values. Made by a New Zealand-based company UBCO, the bike features motorcycle level specs, and functional bicycle pedals.
As you can see, the UBCO FRX1 Freeride Trail Bike, one of the most ambitious electric bike models recently unveiled, is tailor-made for the terrain.
The vehicle features a liquid-cooled 15 kW and 20 hp electric engine, which allows the 50 mph (80 km/h) to be reached without major problems. It has functional pedals and pedal support system and is a lightweight dirt bike with the total weight of the bike is just 52 kg (115 lb).
Besides, the pedaling is fully assisted, UBCO provides the driver with up to 9-speed gearbox, in combination with a 2.2 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. The company claimed that the UBCO FRX1 Freeride Trail Bike can cover the maximum range of 62 miles (100 km) with a full charge (maintaining an average speed of 32 km/h, 22 Wh/km).
The advanced bike can also take advantage of the regenerative braking to recover about 10% of the lost energy. This new electric model can be fully charged in about 2.5 hours using the traditional way (standard wall socket).
The UBCO FRX1 Freeride Trail Bike will debut on 26th September at the AIMExpo in Columbus, Ohio. What is missing is the price, and here the real pains could come, given the basic characteristics. However, the vehicle is certainly unexpected, which is cheap or affordable, but we’ll see!
