Introducing the faster, longer range, more comfortable e-bike.

UPC: 731628318054

The low Lightning position gives a 30% speed and range increase over upright e-bikes.

  • Range: 12 to 35 miles, depending on speed, hills, and pedal assist.
  • Top speed: Up to 35 mph where allowed by law.
  • Pedal-Assist & Throttle On Demand.
  • Programmable LCD dashboard.

“Got my first ride today on the Lightning Phantom with electrical assist. This combination leveled the hills and allowed me to laugh at the headwinds. Now I ride between 10 and 15 mph rather than 6 to 8 mph. I use the throttle to get going from a stopped position. Covered 16 miles on my first electrical-assisted trip. It’s almost like I grew a pair of bionic legs.”

A 500-watt motor is powered by an internal 5:1 planetary gear hub motor with clutch.

The clutch in the geared motor offers zero drag when pedaling and not engaging battery power. This motor is more efficient, resulting in increased range (especially with “start/stop” riding), has more starting torque, and has greater hill-climbing ability than a Direct-Drive motor of equal power rating. The motor is also smaller in diameter and 3.4 pounds lighter than the 500-watt direct-drive.

48 Volt 10 amp-hour Li-ion battery pack.
  • Battery is in an aluminum case and can be removed for charging.
  • Key lock prevents theft and unauthorized use.
  • Rear rack is included with bike.
  • Li-ion batteries provide a high level of performance for the duration of each discharge. Li-ion batteries have a much higher power to weight ratio than lead-acid and 5-8 times the number of charge cycles (how many times a rechargeable battery can be charged from 0-100%). The Li-ion option costs more initially, but over time, the “cost-per-cycle” is about half the cost of lead-acid. Li-ion packs also require less care as they can be left partially charged, and do not require immediate charging after each use. All batteries must be properly cared for during storage.

Power assist sensor ring.

In power-assist mode the motor only operates when you pedal. There are four different levels of motor assist, controlled by a selector switch.

Twist throttle.

On-demand throttle allows using the motor from a dead start. No need to be moving before the motor will engage, unlike other systems.
