The Super73-S Adventure is a Class 1 or 2 electric bike, but an Offroad mode unlocks Class 3 power for those that are looking for more oomph.
The S series models from Super73 inclusive of the Adventure use a 750w rear hub motor with a peak output of 1500w. Across the board Super73 electric bikes are definitely Throttle biased. The Adventure uses a thumb throttle on the right side of the bars.
There is a 900Wh battery located on the downtube of the frame that is removable with a key. This relocation of the battery from other Super73 models allows the S Adventure to have a longer seat. Additionally, moving the battery to this position brings the weight down lower and offers a more stable riding characteristic.
Overall range is an estimated 40+ miles in Class 2 mode using only the throttle. Super73 claims a 75+ miles for a Class 1 pedal only use. We didn’t quite have the chance to test that range out, but saw over 20 miles of Class 2 throttle use with plenty of battery left for Class 3 Offroad fun.
The S-Adventure has a seat height of 31″ giving it a much larger feel then some of the other Super73 models. The S Adventure also has the McFly handlebars which are nice and tall. This taller seat height and high bars makes the S Adventure much more comfortable and appealing to taller riders.
Unlike the Z Miami we tested before, the S Adventure has an 8 Speed drivetrain making it much easier to pedal for those throttle free instances. The shifter is located on the left side of the bars and it shifts quite nicely across the gears.
The S Adventure sits on 20″ spoked wheels with a 4.5″ front tire and 5″ rear tire. The tires are Super73 branded with a very deep lugged pattern that offered fantastic grip offroad.
All of the models come with the McFly handlebar, except for the Snowshadow SE, which comes with the Blain handlebar that is slightly lower profile.
As mentioned there is an extended seat for more body position maneuverability while riding.
The Super 73-S Adventure has a front suspension fork with tuning adjustments. The fork feels great and makes up for the lack of rear suspension.
The hydraulic disc brakes bed in nicely and feel very good while using. They offer very predictable stopping power in both dry and wet conditions.
Final details of the S Adventure include front and rear fenders and lights. The LED headlight is mounted in very cool looking number plate and the taillight tucks up very nicely between the frame and rear fender.
