Come to find out the Lectric XP 3.0 is quite a universal and adaptable machine. Starting at $1305, Lectric has all sorts of build-out kits, or packages, available to best suit your type of riding.
For us we chose the Cargo Package, the additional baskets opened up loads of new opportunities for the XP 3.0 to really become quite the commuter.
This flagship model is a Folding Fat Tire electric bike and this latest generation gets hydraulic disc brakes with 180mm rotors and a front suspension fork. Just two key features making their debut on the XP 3.0.
The XP 3.0 uses a 500w rear hub motor with 1000w peak and 55nm of torque. Lectric’s PWR technology is used in place of a torque or cadence sensor traditionally seen on electric bikes.
Aside from choosing a black or white model, the XP 3.0 is available in a hi-step or step-thru model. Lectric has also expanded the battery coverage from a standard 500Wh (48v 10.4Ah) battery to an optional Long Range battery (48v 14Ah) that can increase range by up to 45%. Range tests conducted by Lectric conclude da 45 mile range with the standard battery.
The XP 3.0 has a Shimano 7 speed drivetrain and rolls on 20″ x 3″ fat tires. Overall, the XP 3.0 weighs in at 64 pounds with the standard battery.
The rear rack is integrated into the frame and has an independent load capacity of 150 pounds. The rack is suited for Yepp child seats and of course various in-house accessories made just for the XP 3.0.
There is a large and robust locking mechanism in the center of the frame to fold the bike making it more compact for storage. Both the handlebars and seat have quick-adjust levers as well, making raising or lowering their height fast and tool free. Along with the telescoping handlebar mechanism, there is a second latch that allows the stem to fold down, which is all part of the foldable and compact storage philosophy of the XP 3.0.
