Introducing: the Aceshin 26" Electric Mountain Bike
The Aceshin 26″ electric mountain bike comes in a box with the handlebar and seat unattached to facilitate shipping. A toolkit is provided to complete the assembly and make the necessary adjustments. The ebike is foldable for easy transportation and storage and comes with a charger for the battery.
Net weight of this ebike is approximately 56.8 lbs., including the battery (4.85 lbs.) Load capacity is 330 lbs.
The bike is fitted with a carbon steel front suspension fork to ensure a smooth ride over stones and bumpy roads.
Maximum speed is approximately 15.5 to 18.6 mph on a flat road, using electric power alone. With power-assist you should be able to exceed 20 mph. (see “3 Riding Modes” below)
The braking system consists of front and rear disc brakes.
3 Riding Modes
You can easily toggle between 3 riding modes:
- Pedal power only
- Power-assist (pedal and motor power)
- Pure electric (motor power only).
With the LED 3-speed smart meter button, you can choose the electric assist power according to your needs. You can add a burst of speed with the throttle, which is ideal for pulling away from traffic lights.
Frame and Wheels
The ebike’s handlebar, 26″ wheels, frame and pedals are made of aluminum alloy, while the front suspension fork is of carbon steel. The anti-slip, wear-resistant tires take standard bicycle tubes.
There are no mudguards on the 6-spoke Upgrade ebike models but you can purchase mudguards separately.
Battery and Charger
The Aceshin 26″ electric mountain bike is powered by a rechargeable 36V 8AH, large-capacity lithium-ion battery, which is very easy to remove and replace. Charging time is 4-6 hours. However, you cannot charge the battery away from the bike as the charging port is attached to the controller on the frame.
A lock and key is provided to keep the battery securely attached to the ebike and avoid it being stolen. The battery can, of course, be removed when the bike is not in use.
Motor and Accelerator
This Aceshin ebike is propelled by a 250W high-speed brushless motor which can reach 25-35 km/h. You’ll find the electric throttle on the right-side handlebar grip. The more you twist the throttle towards you, the faster you’ll go.
Front and rear wheels are fitted with disc brakes.
If you’re a short person and this Aceshin ebike’s seat is too high for you, you might prefer this model instead.
