This is a brand new commuter bike from HPC! Supremely smooth and comfortable with its 700C wheels, the HPC Urban Xcel can get you where you need to be quickly and efficiently. The light weight mid drive system comes in two flavors: 750W and 1200W. The 750W version can reach speeds up to 28 mph and delivers up to 20 mile range (no pedaling), while the 1200W version offers speeds up to 32 mph and 30 mile range!
Weighing in at a svelte 43 lbs, this bike can be enjoyed by people of all ages who might not have the physical strength to handle heavier bikes. Since these bikes have a mid-mounted motor, it allows the HPC Urban Xcel to drive through the gears and operate efficiently through a much broader range than a direct drive or geared hub motor can. This means that the 750W version can climb hills in low gear as steep as our 3500W hub motor system, while the 1200W version can can climb hills just as well as our 5000W hub motor. The real kicker though is the fact that it can climb these steep hills while being at least twice as efficient as the big hubs!
These commuters are a joy to ride, and look fantastic as well! These bikes have just launched and are already one of our best sellers!
