  • The CrossCurrent X’s rear light is not wired into the main battery and must be switched on manually.

Bottom line

The CrossCurrent X is an upgraded version of previous CrossCurrent models, featuring a more powerful battery, rear rack, fenders and a gel-padded saddle. In delimited ‘race-mode’, the CrossCurrent X can achieve a maximum speed of 30mph (which is illegal on most public roads in the U.S.A., but OK for private land). It has a large 52V 19.2Ah battery that dispenses a very generous range of around 60 miles under normal use. Some pre-assembly problems were evident, especially with loose spokes and untrue wheels. Customer service was often underwhelming. Once the bike is set up properly, owners are generally pleased with what is a powerful and fast, commuter-focused bike.

Juiced Crosscurrent X | 1000 Mile Ebike Review | Fulltime RV Living

We are full-time RVers, we’ve been on the road for 18 months and e-bikes are the perfect fit for this lifestyle… with the 19.2 amp hour battery conservatively I can do 60 miles on the bike… the top speed I’ve reached on it is 34.9mph… this is not for somebody who just wants to ride casually around a park… if you’re into off-roading this is not the bike for you… You’ve had this bike 18 months and put over 1000 miles on it, what are the downsides? There really are no downsides.

2020 Juiced CrossCurrent X

On the rear wheel, the spokes were actually pretty dangerously bad… really bad, really, really bad… the wheels are not true… these fenders, the bolts stripped out almost immediately. It’s just cheap design… they do have a really good range and a really good battery.

Juiced CrossCurrent X E-Bike Range Test

We ended up with a 5 hour and 36 minute trip, went 62.91 miles, at an average speed of 11.2 miles per hour… I noticed that multiple spokes were completely loose. They weren’t even tightened at all… the wheel is still way out of true… Juiced Bikes customer support is borderline non-responsive… you pay [this much] for a bike, out-of-the-box you expect it to at least be rideable…

Juiced Crosscurrent X E-bike Update

I’m having a blast on this thing… the one major thing I had an issue with was the rear wheel… from shipping, I believe, the rear wheel had gotten dented… it was a pretty big issue… I emailed Juiced… you’re gonna have to bring your patience when you’re dealing with them… they sent out a completely new rear wheel assembly; tire, rim, all the spokes, and motor!.. I’m very happy with the resolution but I’m a little unhappy with the 2 months that it took.

Juiced CCX CrossCurrent X 500 Mile Review!

This is the 500 mile review… These tires have been great… mechanically it’s been wonderful… First, when I got the bike everything was great, except for the kickstand. It was broken, the metal was just sliced in half… it took 3 to 4 weeks to get a new one. Up until then I had to find a place to lean it and that caused me to get some damage on my bike and I ended up dropping it… The original seat was just very bad… They claim 80 miles. Most I’ve got is 58 miles… mostly in limp mode… Once the motor gets over 40° celsius the motor makes a weird sound and it just stops… highly recommend it…

My New E Bike – The Juiced Bikes CrossCurrent X

The bike comes with fenders and a rear rack, a nice headlight… the rear wheel had a whole bunch of loose spokes, right out of the box.

Bike Ride With Mavic Air 2 and Juiced CrossCurrent X

It’s a great bike but my reason for choosing it was because I have a 33 mile one-way commute to work that I use it for and I didn’t want to worry about conserving battery… depending on your needs I’d say there are more comfortable better bikes… But for sure the CCX is an awesome bike. I love it and the torque sensor does make a huge difference… my ride is also very hilly and it eats the hills alive, no problem.

Juiced Bikes CrossCurrent X Electric Bike Review: The Complete Commuter Experience

While there are more attractive electric bike options, many of these are priced thousands more than the CrossCurrent X… The bike has a fairly clean look and doesn’t look cheap or shoddy at all… So, did the CCX battery last for the entire 39-mile commute with a 250-pound guy and another 20 pounds of gear? Yes… I was very impressed by all aspects (comfort, performance, appearance, price) of the CrossCurrent X.

Juiced Bikes CrossCurrent X

The fun-factor of this bike is off the charts. It feels like riding a cruiser, but it goes a lot faster… If you keep your tubes properly inflated and steer clear of mountain bike paths, you may end up going years before having to repair a flat… The front fender was so difficult to attach… The rear fender was rubbing against the rear wheel… It is the ultimate commuter’s tool.

The Juiced CrossCurrent X Is a 28+mph E-bike With Fantastic Range

A standout commuter vehicle, checking off a formidable list of features at a price that won’t break the bank… As an internet-direct company, you probably won’t get the same personal attention you might have with a bike from a local dealer, and processing warranty claims or getting parts for repair can take longer… you’ll have a tough time finding an e-bike that offers as much as the CCX at its price… Above all, it’s convinced me to bike just about everywhere I can.
