For 25 years, Kickbike has been leading. The adult scooter revolution with the world’s best fitness, and adventure. And dog scooters on the market. Now we have taken it to the next level with the best electric scooters in the world. The same addictive Kickbike experience before. But now you can explore further, go higher, and experience more epic adventures. While leaving only tire tracks behind. Be part of the Next Big Thing; this is a very special Kickbike that we are very proud of!
With the cruise, you can still get a fantastic low-impact workout by riding it like a regular Kickbike. But with a gentle thumb push. You can kick up that silky-smooth motor. And seamless transition from electric to kick-powered whenever you want. Want. It is a fun experience, unlike other electric scooters on the market. Some people prefer to use the powerful engine only on hills. Or if they go too far from home…while others use the engine all the time, zipping around the city. As if they’ve transported to the future of their dreams! It’s FUN!
At around half the weight of a comparable e-bike and use. The same top-of-the-line components. You’d find on a premium e-bike for twice the price. The new electric Kickbike is a near-perfect combination of low-impact athletic awesomeness. And cutting-edge performance. Technology + amazing design + best fit and finish!
The Kick electric bike gives us the fun and comfort we need for a smooth walk and ride. Unlike standard bikes, they are generally easier to get by with. But what exactly is it? What factors should considered in the search? And what are common examples of high-end bikes of this kind?
They say necessity is the mother of invention. And that’s true with our DIY e-bike (or “scooter” if you prefer). We explored our options by wanting a rack. We could use it for a quick zip to the store, visiting family, or running an errand. Or commuting to the train station (the last mile solution) where a bike locker awaits. We already had a small e-scooter (from GoTrax) used for this purpose. Still, anyone who has ever ridden one of these knows that. They are an accident waiting to happen – main. Because of their small 5 up to 8-inch wheel (usually hard rubber) and missing suspension.
We conceive and devote the entire length and breadth of this article to their study. We take care of every aspect of bicycles. From their physical appearance and structural components to the maintenance procedures. You must follow to get the most out of them.

What is an e-bike?
It’s a powered version of your standard or regular kick bikes. It has two wheels and handlebars but lacks chains, seats, and pedals. With this build, the bike gives you a platform to stand on and control as you travel from one place to another.
Why we chose the Cruses “Cross 6.2” kickbike for electrification:
1) It known as good. We already had this trail-worthy bike (discussed here) that impressed us;
2)The steel frame was an important feature. Especially considering the amount of torque the electric motor generates. (which translates to wear/tear on the rear wheels).
3) A 26-inch front tire combined with a 20-inch rear tire would be ideal for safety and driving comfort;
4) Dual disc brakes;
5) Front suspension fork;
6) Crussis “Cross 6.2” is available on Amazon;
7) The dimensions were perfect to match the assembled kits available on Amazon
8) The torque arm fits the existing bolt pattern on the rear (no special hose clamps or drilling required!).
The Glide E-Cycle is ready for any adventure. You can throw—grocery trips, daily commutes, trails, road trips, you name it. It built from quality components in the USA. There are 3 models to choose from, from on-road to off-road. With an average top speed of 20-25 mph and an advertised range of “up to” 25 miles. Prices range from the low $2k to the mid $5k range. Check out their website for all their offers and specs.
We had the pleasure of testing the model shown at the recent Earth Day/E-Vehicle Showcase. It’s top-notch without a doubt (the price reflects it)! It’s heavy – you won’t be taking it on public transport and not in the back of your car. And due to the generous footrest and ground clearance. Forget about “kicking” this kick-bike. Ergonomic handlebars and an upright position are ideal.
Kickbike makes a variety of scooters for adults (“scooters”). Including an urban commuter (complete with front basket). A folding “last mile” solution and an all-terrain and fat tire model. They have been around for over 25 years. We excited to read that sometime in the summer of 2019. They will come out with an electric model – like the one in the picture. A cruising speed of 18 MPH is lower than. What we were looking for in an electric kick-bike (hence our DIY project above).
It comes with a Bafang front wheel hub with a 250W electric motor, which suggests that the advertised top speed may be limited to ideal riding conditions (light rider, no wind, full charge, etc.). The DIY Crussis Kickbike project above has a Bafang 500W motor. It looks like a well-put-together E-SUB. That is still capable of “kicking” for fun, practice, and extending range.
Gravity Scooters based in Spain have a range of top models to choose from. Including a well-equipped E-Scooter. The look and stats are very like our Crussis DIY project. Including the front shock and 500W electric motor. Key stats for this $1,800 model listed below.
Of particular note is their downhill scooter model (non-electric). Which described as “downhill in its purest form.” The gravity downhill scooter looks legit from the videos and has a lot of fun!
