Ridgeback X3 Open Frame

Ridgeback X3 Open Frame

    The Ridgeback X3 is the perfect all-terrain, all conditions E-bike, with high powered assistance at the touch of a button. This model has an open-frame design, making it easy to step onto the bike and take a seat in complete comfort.

    The X3 is powered by Shimano's STEPS E6100 drive unit and hills are no longer a chore thanks to 250-watts of pedal assist.

    The reliable motor will help you all the way up to 25km/h allowing you to cut journey times and arrive fresh, without the stress of sitting in traffic.

    A large battery gives the bike a range of up to 150km in Eco mode - plenty of range for your daily commute, or even longer days out, before overnight charging. You can keep an eye on your range and change between the three modes using the handlebar mounter display.

    The X3 focusses on comfort, reliability and simplicity to ensure you always enjoy the ride.

    Reliability and simplicity are taken care of by the high-quality and smooth shifting Shimano drivetrain. Nine gears provide a wide range, allowing you to spin easily up climbs and hold good speed on flatter ground and descents.

    The bike is also equipped with hydraulic disc brakes for powerful stopping in all weathers.

    Comfort is provided by the extensive and well thought out specification. A suspension fork and suspension seatpost smooth out bigger potholes and kerbstones, while a padded saddle and ergonomic grips keep you comfortable throughout your ride.

    We've also included mudguards to keep spray at bay on wet days, a rack for carrying pannier bags - removing the need to take a rucksack, integrated lights and a kickstand.
