The Summit 36V electric mountain bicycle is a equipped with a recent advancement in the world of electric bicycles - the mid motor. Having the motor in the mid provides numerous benefits which include some of the following:
The bike has zero resistance when pedaling with the power off, has a lower center of gravity for better handling and overall greater performance coupled with lighter weight. But, the most important feature is the ability for the bike to make you feel as if you're pedaling a regular bicycle. Having the motor in the middle ensures that your riding experience will be nearly identical to that of a regular non-electric bicycle. This only applies when the power is turned off.
Discount Notice: 36-volt models are discounted at a far greater rate than the 24-volt models this season.
To increase the smoothness of the ride, this bike is equipped with the SA Suntour XCM front forks. It operates by equipping the left side of the fork with a coil spring with a preload adjuster, and the right side with a hydraulic lock-out cartridge. Overall, it there to provide you with a smoother ride.
One of the most compelling features of the bike is the Smart Power Assist System (SPAS) paired with the LCD screen attached to the handlebars. The smart power assist system will allow you to potentially operate the bike at twice the efficiency than a non-SPAS equipped bike. The LCD screen will enable you to select the power consumption of the bike to synchronize with your pedaling to be as efficient as possible. Additionally, synchronizing your pedaling and power output can enable you to ride up to 35 miles per charge on optimal terrains. Realistically, you won't be operating on optimal terrains, so a figure close to 30 miles is more likely to be obtained.
Folding: This bike is NOT a folding bicycle.
Speed: The Summit 36-volt MTB has an approximate top speed of 25 MPH. This can be further increased if you pedal while the bikes going at top speed (but not significantly).
Range: The bike has an approximate range of 25 miles without the smart power assist system and approximate 30-35 miles with it.
Battery Charge: The bike has an approximate 2-5 hour charging time.
Maximum Weight: The Summit has an approximate maximum weight of 350 LBS.
Basket: The basket is not included with the purchase of this model.
Black Bar Ends: The bike is equipped with black bar ends which are there to help alleviate the potential discomfort such as numbness, soreness or any other discomfort that comes with being seated in a single position. What the bar ends allow you to do is have an additional hand position to relieve the pressure from your hands. And, they'll allow you to get off the saddle and stand up while climbing hills or just during general riding.
