eZee Sprint 3 without battery

The eZee Sprint 3 uses the same electric motor as the Sprint, but has some simpler componentry and less features, to bring its price down. But the high quality level remains.

Compared to the standard Sprint It has a 3-speed internal hub gear rather than 7-speed, a front V-brake rather than hydraulic disc brake, Schwalbe Big Apple tyres rather than Schwalbe Marathon Plus Tour tyres, no computer, no rear wheel lock and a cheaper rear light. This saves $500 on the price of the bare bike without battery. Available in silver only.

The eZee Sprint is a high quality electric bike offering a good deal of power and speed. When you add the 15 Amp-hour battery, it also has a good working range. It is a pleasure to ride, and will fit most riders comfortably. The handlebar control of the five "power levels" (think of cruise-control), the Shimano Nexus 8-speed hub and the Schwalbe Marathon Plus tyres are particular highlights.

You can come in to our shop for an obligation-free test ride. Then if you like, we can order one in for you in the colour and battery type of your choice (subject to availability).

Lead Acid vs. Lithium Ion Batteries

!
Lithium Ion batteries offer three advantages over sealed lead-acid.

Weight: For equivalent capacity, a Lithium Ion battery weighs a half to a third as much as lead-acid.

Durability: A lead acid battery is good for up to 300 recharges. A Lithium Ion battery is good for up to 1,000 recharges.

Lifetime Performance: A Lead Acid battery starts to deteriorate from new, with the range travelled slowly diminishing over time. Lithium Ion performance will stay stable throughout the lifespan of the battery.
