With every passing day, electric bikes become better and more affordable. And the category may have just peaked with the CrossCurrent S2 from Juiced Bikes, which just dropped this morning.
While its sleek, blacked-out looks are refreshingly understated — and its price a tempting $1,799 — this commuter-friendly set of wheels packs plenty of winning components. Key features include a 9-speed Shimano cassette drivetrain, hydraulic disc brakes, a range of 50-plus miles and a bright 1,050-lumen headlight.
But the real star of the show is the potent 52-volt battery, powering a 750-watt Bafang geared hub motor that’ll get you up to 28 miles per hour without breaking a sweat. Add your own pedaling (super smoothly thanks to the brand’s game-changing torque sensors), and you can hit 33 mph.
The only downside? No more excuses for being late to work.
