Consumer commuting behavior has changed dramatically during the pandemic, but perhaps one of the most visible new habits on the streets of the city is the rapid acceptance of electric bicycles by people. Not only has the blockade boosted the popularity of electric bicycles as a means of transportation, but it has also amplified the expectations of new riders on these vehicles.

For the lifestyle brand Super73, that meant returning to one of its first products, the Super73-Z1, and redesigning it for a new generation of riders. The result is a new, lighter, larger and more powerful ZX, joining the Z1 in the company’s entry-level category. As a review, Super73 bikes fall into three categories. The top-of-the-line flagship R series model, the midrange S series, and the entry-level Z series that avoids the latest technology and pursues more fun elements. ..

The new frame is larger and the tall handlebars are also adjustable to fit taller riders better.

The new ZX bike is the next step from the more basic Z1 model, bringing a lighter and wider range of 6061-T6 aluminum frames (rather than steel). That is, a larger 615 watt-hour battery (again, unlike the Z1’s smaller 418 watt-hour unit, it’s now removable). According to the Super73, the new ZX frame and redesigned longer seats are better suited for taller and heavier riders than the Z1’s more compact units.

The ZX’s motor is also more powerful, claiming a peak output of up to 1350 watts, or nominally 750 watts. Also, unlike the Z1, the ZX has pedal assist modes for eco, tour, sports and super, so you can control your bike in class 1 and 2 (up to 20mph) or class 3 and unlimited (up to 28mph). ). The ZX is pre-programmed for Class 2 riding mode, allowing up to 20mph of throttle and pedal assist riding. You can take advantage of these modes via the SUPER73 smartphone app (IOS and Android) and see them on the compact ZX translucent LCD LCD display.

In summary, the Super73 says the ZX can crank the range 25-50 miles from the battery, depending on the pedal assist mode and other normal variables such as rider weight, speed, wind, tire pressure, terrain and slope. Insist.

So who is it for? According to the marketing spin, “from weekday commuters to weekend warriors, urban adventurers, and even parents with young families,” it’s like all casual riders. With that in mind, it makes sense for the Super73 to keep the price reasonable. The ZX retails for $ 1995, which is $ 600 higher than the Z1. At that price, you’ll get a standard 615kWh battery pack, four riding modes, a smartphone connection, an extended 31-inch high comfort seat, and 180mm disc brakes, but to be honest. , Not so many. For example, headlights, taillights and turn signals are all optional (sold separately), just like fenders and suspensions. Want a rear derailleur? The 10-speed Shimano Zee will be available at the end of the year. The 5A fast charger also costs extra, which is why the Super73 was able to buy this bike for less than $ 2,000.

The Moonlock Launch Edition has a red wheel liner on the 20-inch wheels, while the Storm Gray model has a white liner inside the wheel rims. The Launch Edition also comes with wide 20 x 4.5 inch LZRD street tires with a street bias tread pattern.

Of course, you can enhance your ZX with additional accessories such as saddleman seats, crank brothers bags and pedals, 1-up car racks, Oury grips, SUPER73 custom handlebars and molding panels. Us? We will probably get more optional suspension than the others.
