Cyclotricity Beast 1500W Dual Power Electric Mountain Bike
If you ever wondered whether or not you can de-restrict your electric bike to go faster than the usual 25km/h speed limit and use it off-road, oh boy you’re in for a treat! The ever so popular Beast now comes in a new power boosted version allowing you cruise at 40km/h given it’s 48V 1500W system.
The UK/EU regulations dictate that an e-bike must not exceed the rated power of 250W to be road-legal. Which is not great news for the thrill-seekers, power hungry among us who want to have the occasional fun off-road yet still be able to ride sensibly and legally on-road. A purchase of the common high powered electric bike will come with its legal implications. On the other hand, the practicality of a road-legal e-bike means giving up the fun one could have off-road. So which do you choose?
The following options are available with this bike:
- Warranty - The standard is a 12 month warranty. An additional warranty, making 2 years in total, is available at an additional cost.
- Battery Size - The battery determines the number of miles per charge. There are different battery options available with this bike, with the range of each battery being listed in the specification section.
- Lights - The bike is supplied without lights as standard but we can add these on for you
- Pannier Rack - The bike is supplied without a pannier rack. We can fit one for you if required
- Mudguards - The bike is supplied without mudguards. We can fit front and rear mudguards for you if required
- Hydraulic Brakes - As standard the bike has cable disc brakes. Whilst the standard brakes do the job, one of the most requested upgrades for this bike are hydraulic brakes. These hydraulic brakes really do make a huge difference to the feel of the braking. Please note that when hydraulic brakes are fitted the auto shutoff brake function will not be active.
- Throttle - As standard the bike is supplied without a throttle. We can add a throttle onto the bike but please be aware that the bike is not then road legal and should not be ridden on the public highway, even when in 250w mode
- Freewheel Gear - The standard 7 speed freewheel gear does the job but can be rather noisy. We offer an upgrade to fit a higher quality Shimano 7 speed freewheel gear
Gear Shifters - The standard 7 speed gear shifters are satisfactory. However, we do offer an upgrade to 7 speed rapid fire trigger shifters
