Izip E3 Metro 2015

The 2015 Currie IZIP E3 Metro comes with all the same features of the 2014 model with the exception of an upgraded longer range 48V 8.7Ah 417Wh. Like the 2014 model, the 2015 IZIP E3 Metro is great for everyday use, for hauling large items, for climbing steep hills, or for ordinary cruising. This bike comes with a removable front rack and an additional stationary rear rack. The IZIP E3 Metro is an IF Design award-winner and has been designed with all of your cruising needs in mind. For ease on those pesky hills, avoiding rush hour traffic, or for a more simpler trip to the farmers market, this is the bike for you.

Battery: The bike comes with an upgraded powerful 48V 8.7Ah (417Wh) long-lasting, lightweight, lithium-ion battery. It provides a range of up to 35 miles on the lowest level of assist, and takes 4-6 hours to fully charge. The battery provides about 700 charges cycles and can be easily charged on or off the bike.

Brakes: The Metro comes with Avid BB-5 Disc Brakes with 160mm rotors. Another great feature is the integration between the brakes and the motor. These brakes also come with the additional safety feature of a kill switch – when you apply the brakes, power from the motor will be cut off. With 160mm rotors, no matter how hard you ride stopping should be no concern.

Frame: The IZIP E3 Metro features a lightweight hydroformed 6061 aircraft grade aluminum low-step frame. The frame also features some unique qualities such as a bamboo finished front and rear carrying rack (carrying up to 35 lbs), fender and bottle bosses making attaching any standard bike accessories very easy to do, and a cable inlet system giving the bike an elegant solution for routing the wires and cables.

Drivetrain: The Metro comes standard with 8 speeds utilizing Shimano Cassette 11-34T and a Shimano Acera RD-M360 rear derailleur. It features a trigger shifter on the right side of the handlebars that makes shifting quick and effortless.

Motor: The IZIP E3 Metro utilizes a powerful 500w geared high-torque rear hub motor, delivering up to 40Nm of torque; a mechanical advantage for hauling items and climbing hills. Locating the motor in the rear makes for a more even weight distribution causing the bike to have more stability. The 36v 500w motor systems features three directly integrated sensors; a torque sensor, cadence sensor–measuring how fast you are pedaling, and a wheel speed sensor which allows the motor to seamlessly adjusts to your abilities and any type of terrain. These high-torque motors are extremely responsive, quiet and great for hauling large items and climbing hills.

Riding Modes: The Currie IZIP system features a variety of drive modes to meet a wide range of needs, including throttle mode (T-A-G , Twist-and-go/POD, Power-On-Demand), four levels of pedal assist mode (PAS), and the option to turn all assist modes off. Level four offers maximum power pedal assistance with the motor contributing an additional 100% to the rider
