ENGWE X26 all-terrain e-bike with 31 mph top speed and 62-mile range is crowdfunding
ENGWE is currently crowdfunding for the X26 all-terrain e-bike on Indiegogo. The company claims it is the longest range bike of its kind, with up to 62 miles (~100 km) range on a single charge. This assisted distance is possible is thanks to swappable 1,373 Wh dual batteries, fitted inside the vehicle's frame, with a seven-hour charging time.
A 1000 W motor powers the bike, assisting you up inclines of up to 30% with a maximum speed of 31 mph (~50 kph). A cruise control mode can keep your pace consistent for three to five seconds without you needing to pedal, allowing you to save your energy. There are three speed settings with assist, normal and sport modes. The X26 has an eight-speed Shimano gear cassette and hydraulic disc brakes.
26-in by 4-in fat tires alongside triple shock suspension provide a comfortable ride. The bike is fitted with a 48 V 12 W headlight and a red brake light to alert drivers of your presence. You can view information about the cycle and your journey on the full-color LCD screen mounted on the handlebars. The e-bike weighs 90 lbs (~41 kg) and can support loads up to 330 lbs (~150 kg). Plus, you can fold the bike to make it easier to store or transport.
You can currently receive the ENGWE X26 all-terrain e-bike when you pledge US$1,599 to the Indiegogo campaign. It is expected that the vehicle will eventually retail for US$2,699. According to the company, the bike is already in production, with shipping expected to start in August.
