VICCI folding electric bicycle
1.575€Description and options
The X1 is a high-end ebike model. Frame, front and rear forks are made of magnesium alloy. This is a material that gathers excellent qualities of strength and lightness for the bike structure elements. It is a 20” wheel compact model which gets folded by two points of articulation and with only two movements. Beyond being a highly light model, the X1 has the particularity of mounting a hydraulic suspension element to absorbs the movements and vibrations of the rear wheel. This makes the bike also suitable for use off road.
The X1 model is equipped with a 36V LG lithium battery with a 14Ah charge capacity, giving it a riding range of up to 120 km (according to the manufacturer)
A Torque-type pedal pressure sensor manages the engine's demand for assistance, depending on which of the five assistance levels has been selected
The structural parts of the X1 model, main frame, rear frame and front fork are are made of magnesium alloy. This is a material that gathers excellent qualities of strength and lightness for the bike structure elements. The main frame and rear fork connection sets an articulation mechanism up which allows the rear wheel suspension device showing a high efficient performance.
The X1 model's folding system is intuitive, easy and fast.
The folding points, where the fasten mechanisms and structure discontinuities are, are built with aluminum elements to guarantee the necessary solidity.
The folding system involves two steps. The first step involves rotating the front part of the frame 180° to position the front wheel parallel to the rear wheel. The second step involves folding the handlebar post and handlebars to sit alongside the wheels. To stabilise the bike when it's folded, it is necessary to lower the seat post until it touches the ground and becomes the third point of support.
A two-piece magnets device located on the axles of the front and rear wheels fix the folded position of the bike. It prevents the parts from moving while being manipulated or rolling on the pavements.
The X1 model is equipped with a 36V LG lithium battery with a 14Ah charge capacity, giving it a riding range of up to 100 km (according to the manufacturer). The battery fits neatly into the seat post, where the charging port and main power switch are also located. It can be easily removed, transported and charged anywhere without needing bike to be nearby.
The charging system features an innovative BMS, which prevents the battery from overcharging and overheating and regulates the release of energy for greater efficiency and longer use.
The X1 features a 36V, 250W motor located in the rear wheel, which is has a factory-set power limitation to stop the bike from exceeding 25 km/h. By law, when the bike reaches this speed, the motor must stop providing assistance. The motor is powerful enough to meet the demands of overcoming steep slopes.
A pedalling pressure Torque type sensor controls the motor assistance depending on which of the five levels has been chosen.
It has a clutch system that allows the bike to roll without any resistance should the rider want to cycle without any help from the motor.
The X1 is equipped with 160 mm hydraulic disc brakes on both the front and rear wheels. They offer great braking power and guarantee to stop the bike within a few metres in case of emergency in all riding conditions. In addition, squeezing the brakes automatically disables the motor, facilitating a more immediate brake response.
The X1's 7-speed transmission adjusts the pedalling effort without forcing the motor. The shift lever on the handlebars delivers accurate gear selection according to the gradient of the road. The derailleur is part of the Shimano 7-speed Tourney series.
The connection between the rear frame and the main frame consists of an articulated fastener on the lower part and a hydraulic suspension element on the upper part. It is a mechanism that helps to absorb the movements and vibrations that the irregularities of the ground cause on the rear wheel, and that allows comfortly riding offroad.
The X1 is equipped with a backlit display that features clear, easy-to-read graphics. It displays the data needed to monitor all riding parameters. It indicates real-time speed, lap time, distance travelled, remaining battery, motor assistance level and provides access to other functions such as the headlights and settings menu. The display is also equipped with a USB port to charge other devices such as mobile phones, smart watches and tablets. For a safe management and not having to release the handlebar while handling the device, the display buttons are set close to the left grip.
