8 reasons not to buy

  • The keyhole used to activate the XP 2.0 Step-Thru is difficult to access.
  • The XP 2.0 Step-Thru is heavy and may need two people to lift it.
  • Folding the XP 2.0 Step-Thru can be cumbersome. Its width makes it unwieldy to carry.
  • A tester was unnerved to find the motor kept running after they stopped pedaling.
  • The XP 2.0 Step-Thru’s display is not removable, making it easy to steal.
  • There is no locking mechanism or strap to secure the folded XP 2.0 Step-Thru.

Bottom line

The XP 2.0 Step-Thru suits riders with a wide height range, from 5’0” to 6’3”. The XP Step-Thru’s frame is easy to mount and dismount and is the recommended choice for shorter riders. This bike arrives fully assembled. Buyers only need to unfold the XP 2.0 Step-Thru, adjust the handlebar and seat heights and pump up the tires.

Reviewers were able to maintain a high average speed of 16.3 mph on the XP 2.0 Step-Thru. For most users, the range distance remained consistent, between 23 and 25 miles. The XP 2.0 Step-Thru can be manually switched between a Class 2 speed limit of 20 mph and a roaring 28 mph Class 3 limit.

Lectric XP Step-Thru 2.0 Review

The Lectric XP 2.0 features numerous improvements that make it even better than the original. It may have the same frame and motor, but the addition of a suspension fork, wider handlebar, and narrower 3-inch wide tires have improved its handling and overall ride quality. This Class 2 and 3 capable bike is quick, comfortable, and comes with loads of great features at what we feel is a very reasonable price.

Lectric Ebike 500W Geared Hub Motor vs Rambo 500W Truck Run Mid-Drive Motor up Hills

We’re going to be putting the Lectric XP 500-watt rear-hub-motor e-bike up against the Rambo Cruiser 500-watt mid-drive motor and we’re going to be doing a hill test with them… pretty impressive that the Lectric beat me… I really thought the Rambo was gonna win… The Rambo Cruiser definitely climbed up steep hills a lot easier… I definitely recommend the mid-drive if you have a lot of inclines that you’re constantly climbing up.

Rambo Cruiser Mid-Drive Ebike Test and Lectric Step-Thru First Trail Ride of the Year!

One of the main differences that I’ve noticed so far is the Lectric comes with a rack and fenders… Yes, [the Rambo Cruiser] is a lot more money but…there is a pretty good advantage on one thing on that bike and that’s the mid-drive motor and the torque that it has… You’re not going to beat the price and free shipping that [the Lectric] has… The noise of [the Cruiser’s] motor is very quiet…the way the pedal-assist kicks in is more fluid than on the Lectric… Do I think [the Cruiser] is worth over double the price? In my opinion, at [this price], no I do not.

The obvious upgrade on the 2.0 is that it comes with front suspension. That alone is worth the extra $100.

Lectric XP Review / Good for Big People?

The longest ride that I have taken at my weight, about 20 miles. It was on a rail trail in West Virginia. It was pretty flat. I still had over half the battery left.

Lectric XP 2.0 Deep Dive Review With Ride Footage & Commentary

It comes with a 9.6 Ah battery which should be good for about 40 miles in the lowest PAS (pedal assist setting), but if you’re like me you ride in mainly PAS 2 to 3, you’re more likely to see that reduced to around 30 miles in real-world conditions. Going up hills, it’s great.

The Lectric XP Electric Bike Is a Bit Crude, but Has Quality Where It Counts

Its messy frame welding, exposed cabling, cheap-feeling manual shifter, and other unrefined characteristics show where the maker cut corners to keep costs down.
