Description

Vintage Cruz

35 Mile Range. 36 MPH in Race Mode. 2 Hour Re-charge.

Crafted for Adventure

Our newest model is a classic California cruiser with design elements reminiscent of the American Art Deco movement. Our dream-child and inception model, the Tracker (formerly named E-Tracker), draws its inspiration from the outlawed board-track motorcycles of the early 1900s. Our newest model, the CRUZ, also evokes a bygone era.

Offering the same best-in-class performance as the E-Tracker, the CRUZ leads the industry with a top speed of 36 mph in race mode. Regenerative breaking, coupled with Shimano Alfine hydraulic disk brakes, provides riders with stop-on-a-dime control. In the same fashion as its counterpart, the CRUZ’s top-caliber components include a sandcast aluminum battery box, powerful LED lighting, Phil-Wood front hub, and a Brooks England Ltd leather saddle and grips. A powerful 52-volt battery gives the CRUZ 35 miles of ride capability and requires minimal charge time – it takes just two hours to fully recharge. The stained alder wood frame inlay and cast pewter name badge sings the final note for this model’s signature look, which starts at $4,995.

Features

Vintage Ebike Race Mode

Race Mode

Race Mode is an optional upgrade, which utilizes a 3,000 watt rear hub motor that rapidly accelerates the rider to 36 Miles/Hour (58 Km/Hour). The battery outputs a steady 60 amps at 52 volts. With that amazing powerhouse and a feather light chromoly steel frame, the CRUZ packs a punch. Welcome to the ride of your life. Race Mode is intended for off road use only. Simply remove the Race Mode key to switch back into street legal mode to comply with local regulations including USA and EU standards.

The Battery

The heart and soul of the CRUZ, our patent pending aluminum battery box is beautifully designed and locally sand cast in Santa Clara, CA. This special housing protects crucial electrical components, including the 702 watt hour lithium battery. It also disperses heat, allowing our high performance system to run at lower temperatures, significantly increasing efficiency, providing a range of 35 miles.

Regenerative Braking

Smoothly decelerate while re-charging the battery with the tap of the regenerative braking button. This maximizes the range, guaranteeing you’ll go 35 miles on a charge, even when riding requires heavy braking. The heart of our drivetrain, the 3-phase brushless electric motor, recoups energy that is typically wasted in brake use. A sophisticated computer located in the battery box provides smooth anti-lock braking. Combined with Shimano Alfine hydraulic disc brakes, the CRUZ stops on a dime.
