The 2019 X-Treme Baja 48v folding electric mountain bike is the top-of-the-line foldable electric bike from X-Treme! Just like X-Treme’s other 48v models, it’s driven by a high torque 500 watt Bafang® motor and draws power from a 48v, 8ah, lithium LiPo4 battery pack. It hits speeds of 25 mph using throttle only or pedal assist. Pedal hard and you'll go even faster. The Baja has triple the range of the 24v X-Cursion folding model traveling up to 70 miles on a charge.
Bafang’s specially designed zero resistance clutch motor eliminates drag, so the Baja freewheels like a regular bicycle. The LiPo4 battery is hidden in the frame and easily removed. In fact, riders often carry an extra battery pack with them to extend the bikes range. In manufacturer testing, the Baja performed like a champ. It climbed a 5 - 7% mountain grade at 18mph continuously for 45 minutes.
Where the Baja parts ways with X-Treme’s other 48v electric bikes is in its folding frame. The 100% hand welded frame is made of lightweight, durable 6061-T6 temper aluminum alloy. A sturdy mid-frame hinge allows the bike to fold perfectly in half. The X-Treme Baja can be stored in tight spots and is a perfect two wheeled travel companion!
The X-Treme Baja 48v Folding Electric Mountain Bike carries high-end components from the best bike manufacturers in the business. It features Suntour® XCT front end suspension & KS rear shocks, Altus Shimano® 9-speed shifting and gear system, Tetko® disk brakes on both Kenda® brand tires, King Meter® SPAS, Velo® brand hand grips and a Velo mountain bike seat.
The X-Treme Baja can be powered in three ways;
1) You can pedal it.
2) You can kick up your feet, thumb the throttle and let the motor do all the work.
3) Turn on the King Meter 5-Speed Smart Power Assist System (SPAS) to make pedaling a breeze… and the throttle is always standing by when you need a burst of speed.
The King Meter SPAS delivers power from the motor as you pedal. While standard power assist only has one power setting, the King Meter SPAS offers five. The higher the setting the more power is delivered to the rear wheel. The “smart” five speed option makes it twice as efficient as helps increase range. SPAS is controlled through a LCD screen mounted to the handlebars. The LCD also offers a speedometer, odometer and battery life indicator. As an added bonus, the King Meter SPAS has a USB phone charging port, too!

Finally, I got my hands on this bike! I've actually been saving up for this for some time now! The smart PAS really helps. My old electric bike only had one power assist setting and I didn't always need that much help. This one has five settings, so I can fine tune it depending on how I want to ride. Folds up quick. So cool! Awesome buy, I will definitely recommend the Baja to my friends!
