The 8e is designed to be safe, durable, and grow with you for a lifetime. The bike’s small 20” rear wheel makes loading children or cargo easy, and the low center of gravity helps make the bike stable, even riding with your kids. Longer than most other bikes, the ride feels steady, no matter what you’re carrying.
The comfortable 8e features a low step-over height and an upright riding position. The 8-speed Shimano drivetrain coupled with the potent Bosch Performance Line mid-drive motor will help you quickly and efficiently ride up any hill. Disc brakes stop you in any weather on the way down, and wide tires absorb road shock. Reflective CarryAll cargo bags and a heavy-duty double-legged KickBack kickstand come standard as well.
The 8e comes with mounts for the versatile, strong and useful PorterRack, a front tray that attaches to the frame and offer front cargo carrying capacity without sacrificing stability. Add the custom Xtracycle PorterPack and you’ve increased your front rack carrying capacity by ~29 liters. The integrated Supernova E3 V6S headlight and E3 rear light will ensure you’re never caught on a late night ride without lights again (sold separately)
The Bosch electric bike drive system is the European market leader working with 50 leading European bike brands. With the Bosch’s longtime reputation for quality and service, it’s no wonder they own 25% of market share in Europe. In 2014, Bosch entered the US market and partnered with a few select US brands and Xtracycle is one of them. At this point, Bosch dominates the US market.
The maintenance-free Bosch electric direct drive motor puts out 60Nm of torque and gives you 50% – 275% more power when you need it most. This means that you’ll be able to bike up the steepest San Francisco hills, even carrying heavy loads. The mid-drive motor is incredibly efficient and powerful, so you’ll use much less energy under the same conditions than with any other type of motor. And the Bosch lithium ion battery gives you a range of 20-60 miles. It charges on and off your Xtracycle in 3 ½ hours and to 50% in 1 ½ hours. The Bosch Intuvia console allows you to select the level of electric assist and shows your remaining range, speed, and distance traveled.
