The ASYNC H7 XC all-in-one e-bike has officially entered the crowdfunding arena on Indiegogo, promising a versatile hybrid riding experience. This model is designed to conquer both on-road and off-road terrain, equipped with a robust 500W mid-mounted motor that provides a top assistance speed of 28 mph (~45 kph) and an impressive torque of up to 130 Nm. Precision is ensured through speed and torque sensors that synchronize the engine's power delivery with the rider's pedaling effort, offering a choice of five assistance modes.
A standout feature of the H7 XC is its removable 960Wh battery, granting riders the flexibility to travel up to 125 miles (~201 km) with pedal assistance or cover 50 miles (~80 km) using throttle power alone. The e-bike boasts 27.5 x 2.5-inch Maxxis Aggressor tires for enhanced grip, a Suntour XCR 120mm Air Suspension Fork for smooth rides, and a Shimano Deore 11s Shifter Set for reliable gear shifting. Additionally, the carbon fiber frame and handlebars contribute to vibration dampening, ensuring a comfortable and lightweight ride, with the model weighing approximately 58 lbs (~26.3 kg).
To further elevate the riding experience, riders can connect their smartphones to the bicycle, unlocking a range of app-based features, including GPS Find My Bike & Vehicle Alarm, Cycling Data & Record, and Digital Key & Auto Unlock.
