'Eleglide,' the Berlin-based electric bicycle manufacturer, announced two new e-bikes named the 'Citycrosser' and the 'Tankroll' respectively. The Citycrosser is a speed and stability-focused commuter bike optimized for city environments. It boasts a modest 250W motor and a 360Wh battery which results in a top speed of 25 km/hr and a range of 75km per charge. These specifications were selected to optimize range without drastically increasing the cost of the bike.
The Tankroll, on the other hand, is a fat-tire e-bike designed for diverse, off-road environments. This bike boasts a similar 250W motor but with a more powerful 480Wh battery, allowing for the bike to achieve the same 25km/hr top speed but with improved torque for off-road environments. The range of this bike will vary greatly based on the riding conditions, as it is difficult to estimate off-road ranges.
The Citycrosser retails for $1,049.99, while the Tankroll retails for $1,149.99 USD, respectively. both models are available at Eleglide's online store.
