Testing a production-build CrossCurrent E-bike to the 28 mph top speed!

Running a production-parts build of the CrossCurrent in the field. The arriving supplier's parts are inspected as they arrive. We built a few units to make sure everything goes together as planned. All I can say is this thing is an absolute street weapon!

Throttle or no Throttle? The Solution: Adapt!

The Juiced Bikes CrossCurrent is a Class 3 e-bike that takes advantage of the new CA law which allows electric assisted boost up to 28mph if the throttle is NOT used. I don't think people yet understand how ridiculously awesome that new law is for e-bikes in the USA.

A little backstory: 

At Juiced, we believe true "pedal assist" can only be achieved with a proper torque sensor AND speed sensor. The CrossCurrent (internally known as the "LCC") started out as a platform for us to quickly test various different torque sensors for our ODK Utility e-bikes. It soon became our go-to weekend toy with the ability to blast around at 30 mph while truly getting a stress-relieving workout which is counter-intuitive, but absolutely real. 

Then there was a rumor of a new law that would allow up to 28 mph top speed if the throttle was NOT used. Suddenly the CrossCurrent went from a "tool" to a product worth going into production.

We know that some states have yet to allow "class 3" e-bikes and have limits of 20 mph. In developing the CC platform we have taken into consideration any possible eventuality which politicians might throw at us. 

Our entry into this new e-bike category has multiple control interfaces which can run in Class 1, Class 2 or Class 3 modes without hacking the bike which would make it impossible for us to warranty the product. 

 Production displays with and without SPORT mode

 

Here is how it works: 

Class 3: 28 mph limit with pedal assist

- The CC comes standard in this configuration, it can achieve 28mph with torque-based pedal assist as the battery is already 48 V and we use a speed-winding motor. 


Class 2: 20 mph limit with throttle and pedal assist

- The CC has the ability to use the throttle with an optional wire harness and a half-twist throttle. The controller automatically recognizes the throttle and the limit is put at 20 mph. You still have butter-smooth torque-based pedal assist up to 20 mph. 


Class 1: 20 mph limit with pedal assist

- We have developed a display which will be ready at launch that does not have the SPORT mode. Basically you just easily swap out the display and boom... the bike goes from Class 3 to Class 1. The controller automatically recognizes the Class 1 display and the speed limit is set to 20 mph with pedal assist only.

So to recap: 

The CrossCurrent ships as a Class 3 e-bike with 28 mph top speed right out of the box - which is what everyone wants anyway. You will have the option to get a Class 1 display and/or a throttle, but the limit by law must be then set to 20 mph as long as the Class 1 display is used.

A look at how we road test our bikes. 

We test U500 E-bike up a 3,000ft climb and extreme wet for over 2.5 hours on a single charge. The bike made the trip with charge to spare.
 
It is one of the many “Double Dragon Cave” climbs we make to test the durability of the bikes in difficult conditions. Lab testing is important, but nothing can replace testing in the field. 
 
This uncut video shows a stock bike, but with a few new parts being tested. This bike returned to the factory and taken apart to look for ways to improve the product. We take quality and reliability very seriously.

Largest battery capacity on the E-bike market! Yes, we checked…

Nothing will wipe the “e-bike grin” off your face faster than a flat battery. It's just simple math:

More battery capacity = More range and more fun!

The U500 (ODK V3) has the largest battery capacity of any street-legal e-bike. And not by a small margin.  

We calculated the Watt-Hour battery capacity of EVERY e-bike on the U.S. market. 231 different models were included. 

The results are dramatically illustrated below:
