South Pasadena, CA, November 24, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- The X-Treme XB-300 Li electric bike is the most recent listing to enter The Marketplace. The UrbanScooters.com Marketplace comparison shopping engine allows shoppers to compare thousands of auto alternatives from dozens of online merchants and find the lowest prices available online.
Ever since the price at the pump began to rise and the economy turned south, Americans have been seeking a less expensive way to travel. The X-Treme XB-300 Li offers a solution. It costs only a few cents to charge the battery, so it's dramatically cheaper to get from point A to point B using this electric bicycle than it would be to travel by car. As an added bonus, getting from place to place by electric bike is fun and easy on the environment.
The X-Treme XB-300 Li electric bike with its Lithium Ion power plant is particularly attractive to electric bicycle enthusiasts because of the laundry list of standard options. It offers features like; 20 mph top speed, a 300 watt brushless hub electric motor mounted in the middle of the rear wheel, front and rear disk braking system, Shimano gearing, a "power on demand" twist throttle, front suspension, a 24 v Lithium Ion battery system in a sealed removable pack, a quick 1 - 3 hour charge time, headlight, horn, bell, a rear rack and it's only 52 lbs.
The X-Treme XB-300 Li is the most affordable, feature rich Lithium Ion powered bike on the market today. The high tech, efficient Li-Ion batteries that come standard with this model are typically very expensive, but X-Treme has found a way to provide them at a low price. These light weight batteries offer a short charge time and a very healthy 15 - 20 mile range (without pedaling). The "power on demand" twist throttle allows the rider to extend their range by pedaling. If a rider wants to increase their range, they can utilize the pedals and only activate the electric motor when needed. This method of battery preservation increases the XB-300Li’s range significantly.
UrbanScooters.com President, Frank Minero, had this to say about the XB-300Li’s inclusion in The Marketplace, “This model allows a rider to have an affordable, high quality electric bicycle with high tech, efficient Lithium Ion batteries as a standard option. The rest of its wonderful features like the full suspension front fork and Shimano gears are simply icing on the cake."
The UrbanScooters.com Marketplace has showcased many electric bikes since it first launched over five years ago. These electric bicycles have typically been expensive and heavy. The X-Treme XB300 Li stands out as a reasonably priced, light weight alternative and is a great new addition to UrbanScooters.com's comparison shopping engine.
