The 2018 X-Treme Alpine Trails Electric Bike is perhaps the lowest cost, quality built, electric bicycle sold today. X-Treme Scooters has taken its popular Trail Maker Elite electric bike and stripped it down to the basics. In doing so, they've created a fantastic entry level electric mountain bike with a much lower price tag.
The X-Treme Alpine Trails Electric Bike is driven by a 300 watt zero resistance hub motor, offers both 'Twist and Go' and 'Pedal Assist' power options, has an 'easy swap' battery pack, smart charger, battery gauge indicator, kickstand, toolkit and 7 speed Shimano Tourney gears and shifter. The "easy swap" battery pack can be quickly removed for charging in your home or office. Buy a spare battery (sold separately) and carry it with you when you ride to extend range.
The most notable differences between the more advanced bike and the X-Treme Alpine Trails Elite include sealed lead acid batteries instead of lithium, a heavier steel frame rather than aluminum, off-brand rather than brand name components and the Alpine Trails doesn't include accessories like a rear rack. While most high-end features have been removed and name brand components replaced, the Alpine Trails is definitely a quality built bike and offers tremendous value.

I am a newbie when it comes to electric bikes, so I went with this starter model. I love the easy swap feature of the battery pack, makes it so much more convenient, and you do not have to worry about having to go back to charge it at home, because you can have a spare battery with you all the time. My friend was asking me about it yesterday, and I am so glad this is the bike I went for. In all fairness, this is the best buy I've ever had!
I'm a long time fan of electric bikes, so I guess I'd know if it's good or not. This Alpine Trails is great for the price. It's got all the bases covered. It has enough power, it rides smoothly, it's comfortable and the batteries last longer than I thought. Customer service is great, too. A reflector was smashed on delivery and they got a new one shipped the next day.
