(Image credit- BikeRadar) Santa Cruz Bicycles, a California-based company is well-known for its top-of-the-line gravel and mountain bikes. Additionally, the company has developed a new electronic bike called Skitch that is lighter than the majority of eBikes currently on the market. According to the reports, there are currently a large number of electric bikes on the market, many of which may not be as attractive or as light as conventional cycles. A lightweight device can be particularly advantageous for buyers because weight has long been a problem for electric bicycles.

High-End eBikes Models 

High-end mountain bikes and gravel bikes are what Santa Cruz Bicycles is most known for. Aside from its heritage, the Skitch would come in a particular configuration with drop-bar gravel and an additional choice for flat-bar city models.

The bike weighs only a little bit more than 30 lbs, though the exact weight will vary depending on the bike's features and other modifications.

What's More?

The Fazua Ride 60 system, a novel technique that generates 60 Nm of torque from its special battery, was mentioned as being included in the two available models, as per the reports. Furthermore, a 430Wh lithium-ion battery is included with the eBike. A single charge would give the cyclist a 60-mile range and allow them to pedal at speeds of up to 28 mph. The SRAM Apex and the GX AXS construction are the two options that buyers can select from, based on their preferences.

The framework includes S-30 hydraulic disk brakes flat bar and Apex gravel with Avid Centerline rotors. The eBike also has a 700 x 45 tire set and a WTV Silverado Medium saddle. The bikes would specifically have WTB EZR rims and Schwalbe G-One Overland tires as their tire of choice. The identical cassette is part of the GX Eagle AXS build modifications, along with Level Silver Stealth SRAM Paceline rotors and other improvements. The Rival AXS gravel and Easton ARC 25 Offset rims will also be added to the eBikes. Customers would have four options for frame sizes, but all of them would only be available in the olive green variation. The cheapest choice offered by the firm is the Apex Flat Bar, which would cost $5,999. Meanwhile, other choices include the GX AXS builds, which cost $7,299, and the $6,299 Apex Gravel.
