When choosing a mountain bike, many people are guided by patterns such as the brand, the size of the wheel, the gear and derailleur group or the material of the frame. However, as happens when buying a car or a computer, one of the details that should be taken into account is the type of use it will be given.
Is it true that a utility car is not the same as a large sedan? The same thing happens with mountain bikes. They are all designed to ride on unpaved terrain, but there are different types, each one focused on a specific mode of use.
The most frequent are trail , downhill, cross country and enduro, although there are other segments such as marathon or all-mountain . Here we tell you what they consist of, how they differ and which is the type that best fits depending on the use you are going to give your mountain bike .
What is a Cross Bike?
Cross country (also known as rally or XC) is a competition modality where bikers have to cross mountain sections at high speed. There are usually no big drops. On the contrary, the routes tend to be flat or uphill with obstacles such as stone areas, ramps, muddy terrain or tracks that hide technical difficulties.
In these bikes the geometry is designed to make it very reactive, taking advantage of each pedal stroke. They usually use forks with very little suspension travel (80mm or 100mm) and in some cases without suspension of any kind, since eliminating the suspensions lightens weight.
In fact, XC mountain bikes are the ones that have made this rim size fashionable.
How long does an electric cross bike battery last?
Battery life depends on the care it receives. Keeping the battery protected from temperature fluctuations and storing it in a dry place can extend battery life. With regular use, most electric cross bike batteries become less efficient after about 3-5 years.
How far can an electric cross bike go?
Normally, electric cross bikes with lead batteries can go from 30 miles to 45 miles, this type of battery is already little used. While with lithium ion batteries, the usable route is usually 45 to 60 miles, some models up to more than 80 miles, depending on the model.
And for those cross ebikes with pedal assisted, the range can be much more like 100 miles.
Are electric cross bikes waterproof?
Electric bike powertrains are completely weather-sealed, making them safe to use in wet conditions. However, leaving an electric bike in heavy rain for an extended period without riding it can lead to mechanical and cosmetic damage.
How often should I charge my Cross Ebike?
For best longevity and optimal performance, it is best not to let the battery fully discharge before charging. You should charge your electric bike battery when it has between 30 and 60 percent of its capacity left. However, some experts suggest an occasional full discharge after about 30 to 40 charges.
Can Cross Ebikes go uphill?
Yes, electric cross bikes are well equipped to climb steep hills. Electric mountain bikes have rear hub motors or mid-drive motors. If you want an E Bike Cross that can easily climb steep hills, the mid drive option is your best choice.
What are some of the advantages of electric cross bikes?
Just like other electric vehicles, electric cross bikes are eco-friendly as they do not use gasoline or gas. They are quite easy to handle and comparatively low maintenance.
