Test ride model availableThe Lightning Bosch Performance Line CX Smart, is the newest addition to the Orbit electric assist range.
The frames are arriving in January 2024, and build time will be about 2 weeks.
Built using a lightweight aluminium frame, the tandem uses the Bosch Perfomance Line CX 250W motor and comes with a 545wh battery. At an extra cost a powermore battery will be available which gives a further 250wh of range.
Battery weighs 3.5kg, and takes 4 hours for a full charge, however, it is 80% charged after the initial 2 1/2 hours.
Range of course depends upon rider weight, wind, tyre selection & altitude gain, but it can be as much as 70 miles per charge.
The 250W motor is the highest output system that is road legal in the UK, giving up to 85Nm of torque.
This type of electric assist is called a mid-drive system, the engine runs through the gears, and correct use of the gears when climbing make the system really efficient, and allows a light weight motor to be used whilst still giving out a great amount of torque, which is needed for pedalling up the hills.
Built in North Yorkshire, and finished with top quality components including the new Bosch Smart system with a Kiox 300 controller.
Wheels size 700c.
