As stylish as it is powerful, the Phantom X2 is considered by industry insiders to be the most aggressive and affordable folding electric bike on the market. The Phantom X2 features the superior strength and high-end torque of a 500-watt, direct-drive motor mounted in the rear wheel and provides 720 watts at peak. Riders rave about the elite components and adjustability of this matte black-and-red beauty. The precise engineering of the SRAM drive train consisting of an X7 Twist 8-speed shifter and X7 8-speed mid derailleur will satisfy smart riders. Just give a half-twist to the “power-on-demand” propulsion throttle and off you go. Or, if you prefer, pedal as you would on a regular bicycle for routine exercise. The Phantom X2 also boasts a foldable, lightweight, aircraft-grade, aluminum alloy frame and a shock-minimizing suspension fork. Continental Traffic 26-inch tires and triple-box wide 32-mm rims roll fast on pavement, but also inspire confidence on dirt and gravel trails. This high-end component package results in one enjoyable ride.
