Super 73 SG1: The most design of electric bikes (see bikes just short)
The design of this bike is really his asset first. Thanks to his motorcycle style, you can not miss it. he is different from e-bikes that we are used to seeing in the street.
To make it look like a motorcycle, the designers adopted an imposing style, taken from the American imagination of the bikers of the 90's. It's a bike All Terrainthe wheels are therefore also very wide. They allow to move on all types of soil, water bottom, earth, tar, etc. With this bike nothing will stop you.
The saddle is very designbut she, too, very broad. It will allow you to take a second passenger behind you. But be careful, she is not not comfortable. After a long use, you will begin to feel a slight discomfort. Lithium Cycles has more focused on aesthetics rather than comfort. Depending on the model, you may not have a luggage rack in the back.
A lamp is integrated at the front, as well as a taillight so you can ride safely.
A small dial is integrated on the right side to see its data. You will be able to consult your speed at the time of use, the peak and the average speed. You will also be able to consult the number of kilometers and the time of use.
The use of the Super 73 SG1, the bike with a vintage look
This bike is very easy to use. No need to be a professional, a simple pedal turn and it's gone. Indeed, all you have to do is turn around and the electricity goes straight on.
With a top speed of 45 km / h, the bike at interest to have a good brake. On this side, no problem. he stops very well and quickly. You can even make stops with class by making super skids.
However, pay attention to its nervousness. It is necessary to control its start, because the bike tends to accelerate quite abruptly.
The features of this all-terrain electric bike
The bike has four different speeds. One in freewheels, little used. However, practical when you have to slalom between cars. The start is a little abrupt, this mode can be sure not to go into the vehicle ahead. By cons, the bike is very heavy so we quickly tend to restart electricity. The second is a eco mode. Useful if there is not much battery leftbut it requires more effort so we preferred the other two. The tower mode, has a start a little more nervous than the eco. This fashion is the basic, not too much effort, not too much speed. The fourth and last mode is the sport, our favorite. It's with him that we has the most speed and the most sensations. However, be careful this one is very nervous.
The small dial is practical. It makes it easy to change your driving style. You can, as said before, have all the data of your trip, speed, number of kilometers, etc.
This bike did not a lot of features. Lithium Cycles does not really care about that, but more about design. Moreover, those present are quite sufficient and others would have been superfluous. However, adding a bell would not have been useless.
We can still blame him for lack of a clip to put his phone in order to have the GPS in front of his eyes. It can be purchased separately. Indeed, a multitude of smart health connected objects exist for cycling. But considering the price of it, it would not have been too much.
