The next entry in our weekly “Eco-Friendly Transportation” series is the much anticipated X-Treme XB-305Li!

The X-Treme XB-305Li Electric Mountain Bike is a terrific beginners, out-of-the-box electric bike. It’s identical to the XB-300Li, but with an easy access, step through frame. This is perfect for those of you who are looking for something a bit more accommodating.

Electric Bikes are also commonly referred to as E-Bikes; most are basically bicycles with electric motors used to power them. Mountain bikes are made specifically for off-road terrain, which includes unpaved roads, steep declines and dirt trails. This means these bicycles need to be built tough to withstand a myriad of outdoor obstacles. Mountain Bikes can be classified into four categories: Fully rigid, Hard tail, Soft tail, and Dual or Full Suspension. There are many types of racing competitions that feature these vehicles, most notably Cross-Country (XC) cycling. The XB-300Li is like a two for one!

This bike is perfect for commuters to campus of the workplace. The XB-305Li comes with a 300 watt hub motor that’s powered by cutting-edge, lightweight, lithium ion batteries. You can simply pedal without power for days when you feel like getting in some exercise. You could move by electric power only for days when you just need to get some place. Or simply pedal with power on demand.

The X-treme XB-562 Electric Bike is our choice for this weeks installment of our Eco-Friendly Transportation series!

The X-Treme XB-562 is a sorty, moped like electric bike that is a real head turner. The XB-562 hits speeds of up to 18 mph for up to 18 miles. It can be ridden like a regular bike, operate on 100% electric power, or any combination of the two. The XB-562 is packed with great features, including; a 500 watt motor that can handle medium sized hills and moderate terrain, front and rear dual spring loaded shocks, front and rear brakes, a full sized front headlight, an oversized seat, chrome motor caps, and full front and rear fenders.

The "electric bicycle" classification allows you to operate it without registration or a driver's license in most states (please contact the DMV to check the laws in your area before purchase).

Electric Bikes are also commonly referred to as E-Bikes; most are basically bicycles with electric motors used to power them. One of the best things about electric bicycles is that they are very versatile. If you feel like getting some exercise, you can just pedal. If you find yourself getting tired, just go electric! This makes an electric bicycle ideal for short distance commuting. You can get where you are going by pedaling with a power assist on demand. When you need a break, or extra boost, the 300 watt electric motor comes in handy on straight aways, small hills and easy terrain.
