Product Evaluate: Stealth City Electrical KBO Bike – ReadWrite


The very first thing I did after I went to the KBO website to have a look at the Stealth City Electrical Bike (the Hurricane) is snort. Within the photographs of the bikes and riders on the location — they did precisely what I did after I received the Stealth Hurricane — I left the fenders off. The Stealth appears to be like so cool with out the fenders — smooth and high quality.

The KBO Hurricane ebike has actually slim tires so it feels loads completely different on the journey, than my “fats tire” bike — and it’s not very heavy both. The bike solely weighs about 36 lbs. I can raise it down the steps in my apartment, and don’t must take the elevator. I’ve seen that I’m faster to seize this bike than one of many others as a result of it’s gentle.

You possibly can barely inform that that is an ebike the body is so smooth, but the bike is sturdy. The only-speed belt drive offers a easy, quiet journey. The bike has a belt drive versus a series drive which suggests no catching your pant leg within the chain and no oil slick towards your leg.

Mechanical disc brakes

The bike has mechanical disc brakes which are mentioned to have th strongest and most reliable stopping energy accessible. I don’t fear an excessive amount of about that — however the bike higher cease quick after I apply the brakes — and this bike stops shortly.

The Seat Saddle

The seat is comfy — even on bumps — however I like a little bit extra padding on seats and normally change the seat out. The seat is good sufficient that it’s not an emergency to alter out.

Tires

The tires are referred to as threaded highway bike tires (700x32c). The aluminum alloy rims and slender design make this a very quick journey.

LCD Backlight Show

Everybody on the workplace who took the bike out for a spin seen the LCD backlit show — and I hadn’t seen it. But when you must have a show in your bike — it’s there. It measures pace, distance and driving tme. If you’re a sophisticated bicycle owner this can be particularly suited to you.

I like that the bike got here with the instruments to place collectively. It was straightforward meeting.

I carried the KBO City Hurricane down the steps within the workplace over my shoulder to look cool (and powerful) and a girl within the workplace mentioned, “Oh yeah, straightforward for a person!” I challenged her to offer it a go and she or he was capable of carry the bike with out huffing and puffing — a giant plus.

Total — this can be a very stylin’ bike.
