Big Cat Long Beach Cruiser 500
In 2014, Big Cat® introduced an electric beach cruiser bicycle: The Long Beach Cruiser. This electric bike is a Premium Entry Level Offering and has gone through a gradual upgrade of its components to give riders an even better electric bike experience. Today, Big Cat is proud to introduce the new 2017 Big Cat Long Beach Cruiser. While still maintaining its sleek and stylish look that riders love, the 2017 Long Beach Cruiser 500 is introducing new features to the Big Cat e-bike lineup that will take your riding to the next level.
The Long Beach Cruiser 500 electric bicycle is equipped with a 36V10Ah Removable lithium-ion battery, while still maintaining its strong and efficient 500W geared rear hub motor. On this beach cruiser you'll be sure to get an average of 15-30 miles on a single charge! If it's speed you're after, we have that covered! These electric bicycles can reach speeds of up to 20 mph at the twist of a throttle, allowing you to get to your destination faster without breaking a sweat! Ride confidently with the upgraded 2.3" wheel and tire combo which gives riders a sturdier feel and overall control of the bicycle. It even comes with a front basket!
One of the most important features on the new 2017 Long Beach Cruiser 500 is the Pedal Assist function. This latest edition beach cruiser e-bike still offers both pedal assist and throttle functions, however the new pedal assist function gives riders the ability to choose between 1-9 levels of pedal assist which control the amount or propulsion you get from the motor. Set it to the highest level for effortless riding, or if you're seeking a workout and want to save some of your battery's life, set the bike to a lower setting.
The LED pedal assist controller offers basic controls for turning your unit on, selecting your desired level of pedal assist, and giving you a power indicator. The LCD pedal assist controller is a Premium option which gives users the ability to choose between 1 and 9 levels of pedal assist; it also displays the power on the unit, the speed read out, distance, and the e-bike's current battery life.
All Big Cat Long Beach Cruiser models are equipped with a standard Bafang C961 LCD Display.
