Now, the company has introduced its new version. The company is back with a number of new upgrades to the Swagtron EB7. This will help it to make it better than ever. Before that Swagtron had introduced its brand new full-size electric bicycles. Just after some weeks, they have launched the upgraded version of Swagtron EB7. But it has long been the brand’s folding e-bikes that have topped sales charts due to their low prices.
According to Swagtron’s CMO Jason Wakefield: “The EB7 is one of our best-selling folding e-bikes. But we knew it could be better. We listened to feedback from customers, and made small changes that will have a big impact on versatility and day-to-day performance.”
Upgraded added to the Swagtron EB7
Swagtron EB7 was a power-packed electric bike and became popular in no time among the people. Its performance was so good that it can give tough competition to the electric bikes having twice its cost. Now, we have got an upgraded version of it recently. This upgrade will add up to its already power-packed performance.
The name of the upgraded version of Swagtron EB7 is Swagtron EB7 plus. Its main upgrade is the new battery which is more powerful. It has got a 6.4 Ah battery. This upgrade bumped the total capacity upto 230 Wh. This is not as huge as an industry has got till now but still, it has a decent range in a small, lightweight, folded electric bikes. Its range has become now 20 mph or 32 km/hr.
There is no upgrade has been made in its motor and is still got 35 W hub motor. It’s top speed also remains the same as of the original one that is 18.6 mph or 30 km/hr. But the EB7 gets a new Shimano 7 speed drivetrain to replace the old single-speed setup. This will add up some weight as compared to the original one and will make it heavier.
But, it also has a positive impact as now it will be easy to pedal up hills and allows riders to add assist even at higher speeds. In the previous version people complaint about the seat position. It was not so comfortable for the taller persons. Keeping this in mind manufacturer has given it a new and longer seat post. This design is added just for the taller people so that it can make the ride of taller people more comfortable.
All this upgrade added to this new version makes it a bit more expensive than the older one. The cost of Swagtron EB7 plus is 699 dollars. It is available on the official website of Swagtron as well as on Amazon.
Features which kept as same as of the original one are built-in LED lights, disc brakes, 16-inch wheels, and rear suspension.
