)-- X-Treme's XB-305-SLA Electric Mountain Bicycle is a step up in quality at an affordable price. It is fitted with features that knowledgeable riders will appreciate in a budget mountain bike. This model has just become available at UrbanScooters.com.
Featuring a step-through, 100 percent steel frame equivalent to 18”, the XB-305-SLA is perfect for female riders. Coming in at a mere 65 lbs., the bicycle can carry a maximum rider weight of 350 lbs. with ease. The front fork shocks can take an impact well, and provide a comfortable, easy riding experience for any rider.
“The X-Treme XB-305-SLA is identical to the XB-300-SLA,” said Frank Minero, president of UrbanScooters.com, “except it has an easy access, step-through frame.”
Two 12 volt, 12 amp sealed lead acid batteries feed the XB-305-SLA's 300 watt brushless hub mounted motor, located in the center of the rear wheel. This means no chains or belts to worry about, as power is applied directly to the wheel itself.
The 7-speed Shimano Tourney gears and shifter work together with a TX-31 rear derailleur and gearbox, allowing the rider to pedal, to activate the Twist and Go (TAG) system which activates the motor when the throttle is turned, or the Power Assist (PA) mode, which can make pedaling easier as the engine comes on to provide a boost at every rotation of the pedals.
Front and rear caliper brakes on the X-Treme XB-305-SLA will bring riders to a halt when needed, applying pressure to the double wall alloy rims that have high quality 26” x 1.95” Kenda pneumatic tires mounted on them. When you need to remove the wheels, it's a snap with the quick release front hub and the quick release sealed rear wheel hub motor.
At a mere 63 lbs., the XB-305-SLA is 72” long, with a 25” width at the handlebars, and a height of 42”. The manufacturer claims that it can accommodate riders up to 350 lbs. A low profile, super soft double rubber spring seat is fully adjustable from 37.75” to 45.75”.
The X-Treme XB-305-SLA can carry a rider at speeds up to 20 mph, with a range of 10 miles on a single charge, though pedaling will greatly increase the range. The battery pack is designed as a quick change one, so that swap outs are fast.
Other features include a switch ignition, front and rear mud guards, a battery indicator, front and rear spoke reflectors, a kick stand, and a tool kit.
