Luxuriate through your commute on the effortless XDS E-Spresso i8. Specially designed with a Shimano Nexus hub gear, the i8 aims to be the most uncomplicated E-Bike available, with smooth gear shifting and minimal maintenance. Pedal Assist System (PAS) enabled electric motor amplifies your pedalling power making cycling effortless. Additional features like suspension forks and low-step-through frame offer riders unparalleled comfort throughout their commute.
Every pedal is amplified by the Bafang Max-01 PAS Mid-Drive Electric Motor. The motor sends torque through the drivetrain to more efficiently assist your pedalling up to speeds of 25km/h. Coupled with a 36V Lithium-Ion battery with Panasonic cells, you’ll be supported on the road up to 75km between charges.
Take charge of the Bafang Mid-Drive system with the easy to use Bafang LCD display. Select between 0-5 power levels of pedal assistance, and track crucial trip data like your speed, distance, and time on the bike.
Find a phenomenal range of gear ratios with 5 levels of power assist paired with an 8-Speed Shimano Nexus hub gear. The hub gear offers the simplest drivetrain available, minimising maintenance by shielding gears from debris on the road. The clever GearSensor reduces your risk of damaging the drivetrain by briefly cutting off your motor every time you shift gears.
The added comfort of Suntour Nex suspension forks absorbs the blows of the road, keeping you comfortable and stable, even just riding along suburban streets.
More than just comfortable, the E-Spresso i8 prizes safety with Tektro Hydraulic Disc Brakes. Disc brakes are more reliable than rim brakes in wet conditions, and hydraulic disc brakes offer greater control for less effort than their mechanical counterparts.
The Lightweight Low-Step-Through alloy frame further highlights the E-Spresso i8’s commitment to safety and accessibility, with improved manoeuvrability and simplicity in mounting and dismounting.
Ride for the necessity and stay for the luxury with the XDS E-Spresso i8.
The Mid-Drive Advantage
Lithium-Ion Battery with Panasonic Cells
A great electric bike needs a great battery to work. The E-Spresso i8 comes with a big 36v 2200mAh Panasonic cell to keep you going and going. Safety tested to strict international standards and comes with intelligent protection board for longevity and durability.
Be in Control
With a large backlit Bafang LCD Display and built-in controller, you'll be able to see your speed, trip stats (max speed, average speed, trip total and odometer), current power assist & battery charge. Cycle through 5 levels of power assist, with higher numbers providing more motor assistance during pedalling.
Superior Stopping Power
Experience the unparalleled stopping power of hydraulic disc brakes, capable of bringing you safely to a halt in any conditions. Hydraulic disc brakes are more reliable than their mechanical counterparts and afford riders greater control with less effort required.
Shimano Nexus Internal Hub
Enjoy a consistently smooth ride with the 8 Speed Shimano Nexus Internal Hub gear. Reduced maintenance is a trademark of Shimano Nexus hub gearing, with gears protected from external debris. The result is a greatly reduced need for maintenance and cleaning of the drivetrain.
Stay comfortable even through the bumps and jostles of uneven roads with Suntour Nex Suspension Forks. The Lockout feature allows you to disable the suspension with the twist of a dial when shock absorption is not a priority.
Accessible and Manoeuvrable
The E-Spresso i8"™s Low-Step-Through Lightweight alloy frame is simple to both control on the road, and mount/dismount.
Practical and Convenient
A range of additional features make the E-Spresso i8 ideal for riding in any situation including front and rear PVC mudguards and an alloy rear rack, perfect for attaching bags on long rides.
