2 Electric Motors Xtracycle Leap

Xtracycle Leap Electric Bike with 2 Wheel Drive

The first thing anyone asks when eyeing one of our custom bike builds is “Will it make up the hills?” More than any other place in the world that I have personally rode, St Thomas takes the prize for long steep road grades. Even the most seasoned riders cave in and walk their bikes up many of the hills. So, it has become our mission to find the most powerful and reliable electric bicycle motors for our customers. This Xtracycle Leap 2 wheel drive bike is the apex of our electric cargo bike designs. This bike climbs hills like a mountain goat and the motors barely get warm. Even on full power the range of the twin 20Ah batteries is a good 40 to 50 miles and in pedal assist mode it can be stretched to 100 miles on a single charge. 

This kind of reliability & power comes at a price.  $5200.00 will buy you many years of inexpensive transportation and the peace of mind that comes from owning a quality machine. The Xtracycle can haul groceries, people, building materials, propane tanks, surfboards, diving equipment or whatever you throw at it. The cargo weight rating is 400 pounds (including rider) so large parcels from the post office are no trouble at all and you can even haul home a couple of cases of bottled water or beer if you so choose. This bike will take the place of a small car without all the red tape and extra expense associated with automobile ownership. In the Virgin Islands this is a no-brainer. This is paradise so why not, GET OUT AND RIDE!
