x-treme-xb-200li-super-folding-electric-bike If there's one thing I really like in a product, it's portability, followed closely by light weight. The X-Treme XB-200Li Super Folding Electric Bike fits both of those requirements pretty easily. I was lucky enough to be able to test this bike the other day at a huge parking lot behind a vacant shopping center, which gave me plenty of room to zip around undisturbed, but with plenty of obstacles to zip around to test the handling of the bike.

Folded, the XB-200Li is a mere 25” x 31” x 7”, which fits in some pretty small spaces. And its weight comes in at only 39.5 lbs., which is very easy for me to lug around to the different places I go.

This electric bike is pretty zippy, and I like the way it handles too. Under power, it can attain a top speed of 15 mph, and will go a lot faster if you pedal. The range on a single charge of the 7-pack lightweight lithium ion batteries is 25 miles unassisted, and quite a bit longer if you pedal. That made the XB-200Li ideal for zipping around town without having to charge up except at night, and it takes only 4-6 hours to charge.

What I came to appreciate pretty quickly was the brakes. There are front and rear WinZip disc brakes on this bike, which can bring me to a full stop quickly and with ease, perfect for those occasional (hopefully nonexistent) moments of panic when somebody cuts in front of you.

In all, I was pretty pleased with this super folding electric bike. I can easily see using the XB-200Li for tooling about town, taking shopping trips and running errands. I can also see using it for camping trips, to zip around the campground, head into town for supplies, and reaching fishing spots along the lake or river.

Pros:
  • 300-watt motor
  • Rear hub motor directly driving the rear wheels
  • Front and rear WinZip disc brakes
  • Folds down to a ridiculously compact size
  • Light and extremely portable (and stowable)
  • 100% hand welded, strong and lightweight 6061-T6 TIG aluminum alloy frame
Cons:
  • The seat, while not uncomfortable, can get that way if you sit on it a long time
  • Climbing ability impeded by rider weight (the more you weigh, the harder it is to climb hills)
