Sometimes the 'right' path is not the best path. Sometimes you want to leave the road all alone, or take a road covered in sand, gravel, dirt, snow and mud. Whatever path you choose, electric mountain bikes are ready to take you on the ride of your life.
What is an Electric Mountain Bike?
Electric mountain bikes are very much like traditional mountain bikes. They are built with bigger, fatter tyres to provide greater traction, more stability, better control and a smoother ride. The biggest difference is that electric mountain bikes have motors, which completely changes the experience of where you can go and how you get there.
An electric mountain bike is not a motorbike or scooter. With an electric bike you still get all the fun and benefits of a traditional bike with gears and pedals. The difference: you can put as much physical exertion into your ride as you want, but the help is there when you need it.
Need to lift up a hill or mountain? No problem. You can exert some power on the way up without finding yourself panting at the top. Want to get a workout in while cycling to the beach and then take a boat trip on the sand and enjoy the sea views?
You can go further, faster and fuel more adventures ...... however big you want those adventures to be.
Let's face it, for most of us the idea of cycling up a hill can be very daunting. Electric motors take the worry out of big hills or long rides because you know that help is available when you need it. It makes mountain biking a real possibility for those who never thought they would ride a mountain bike, and even better for those who have already ridden a conventional bike. It has put off-roading on the agenda for more and more people.
That's the Troxus mission - to make cycling easier for more people, no matter what type of bike you want to ride.
The Troxus Vulcanus
Deciding to buy an electric mountain bike is one thing. It's another thing to know which electric mountain bike is best for you. With so many on the market, choosing the right one can be a bit overwhelming.
At Troxus, we keep it simple. We build two e-bike models. The SkyHopper is designed for city life and commuting. The Vulcanus is built for off-road adventures.
The Vulcanus is our most rugged e-bike, ready for riding in the mountains and more. Because although it's called a mountain bike, it's designed to take you to more places. Think beaches, local parks, open fields - this bike is designed for adventure, however you define it.
The Vulcanus is equipped with a rear-drive 250 watt motor. It is powered by a Samsung integrated battery that is weatherproof, removable and lockable. The battery can travel up to 60 miles on a single charge, providing up to 20 mph of power to your pedals. It has three pedal assist modes so you can determine the power at any given time.
It is also designed for comfort. The front shock fork helps to smooth out the rough stuff and the seat and handlebar are designed to ensure your ride is as enjoyable as possible. It comes in two sizes so you can also choose the right size - small, best for people 5'0" - 5'9" and large, best for people 5'9" - 6'4".
With a battery weight of just 55 pounds, the Vulcanus is also lightweight when it comes to electric mountain bikes. The lighter weight makes it easier to transport and manoeuvre than many other heavier electric mountain bikes on the market.
The Vulcanus also comes with big, grippy Kenda 26 x 4 fat tyres that are puncture resistant and ready to help you explore.
Back to reality
While Vulcanus is ready for adventure, you don't need to park it when you need to get back to 'real' life. Because that's just the way it is - for most of us, life isn't always about climbing mountains. Once the weekend is over, it's time to do the grocery shopping, go to work and take care of everyday tasks. Vulcanus can handle that too.
One minute you can be navigating the hills and the next you can be commuting where the most dangerous terrain is a speed bump. It's a bike designed to take you wherever you want to go, and it adds a little extra adventure to everyday life.
All our bikes are equipped with standard features that make them comfortable, convenient and easy to ride anywhere. These features don't cost anything extra and you don't have to choose between them. We've integrated what you'll use and appreciate without a lot of the extra shiny bells and whistles that most people never use.
