The 2020 X-Treme Catalina Electric Beach Cruiser is the exact same seashore themed electric bike as the 48 Volt X-Treme Laguna with the exception of the frame. The Catalina comes with a step-through easy access frame.
The Catalina by X-Treme is powered by a 500w motor that jets you to speeds of up to 25 miles per hour. If you want to go faster, just pedal. The motor can handle medium hills all by itself, there’s no need for pedaling. In X-Treme testing, this ebike held a speed of 18 mph on a 5-7% grade for 45 minutes! The advanced 48 volt LiPo4 Lithium battery system offers tremendous range. You’ll travel 28 miles on battery power alone and up to 70 miles while using the Smart Power Assist System (SPAS). The battery pack is easy to remove and can be charged remotely.
The X-Treme Catalina electric beach cruiser has a laundry list of features not usually found on an electric bike this affordable. It’s fully loaded with awesome stuff like a 9 speed Shimano® Altus gear & shifter system, Tektro® disk brakes, Suntour® 700C hydraulic forks for a smooth ride, King Meter® LED Smart Power Assist System (w/ power assist level indicator, speedometer, odometer and battery level indicator), Kenda® beach tires, zero resistance gearing on the motor so it freewheels, an extra wide and comfortable Velo® spring cushioned seat, advanced LiPo4 batteries, quick release axels, LED headlight, basket, cargo rack and much more.
To make pedaling easier, activate the Smart Power Assist System (SPAS) feature. It automatically applies power to the rear wheel as you pedal. As opposed to the standard Power Assist System (PAS) on X-Treme’s 24-volt electric bicycles, this system is smart and twice as efficient. PAS only offers one power option. SPAS offers five. With SPAS the higher the setting the more power you send to the rear wheel and the easier it is to pedal.
The X-Treme Catalina Electric Beach Cruiser can be powered a number of different ways:
1) Pedaling Only.
2) Twist And Go – There’s a variable speed thumb throttle for instant speed. The harder you press, the faster you go. You can also pedal while using the throttle.
3) Smart Power Assist System (SPAS) – Switch on SPAS and the motor applies power to the rear wheel while pedaling. Five power assist settings are available. The higher the setting the more power is delivered to the back wheel. If you need an extra burst of speed, just thumb the throttle.
If you’re looking for a beachgoer with a step-through frame, but the Catalina is out of your price range, check out the X-Treme Malibu Electric Beach Cruiser.

First of all, this bike is so beautiful! But that's not what I really like about it. I wanted a beach cruiser with a powerful motor. This one is 500 watts and that's really good. I'll be riding it more often to test it out, but right now, I am so happy with the X-treme Catalina. I super love it!
