CSC’s new Vista Cruiser elevates the game for electric cargo bikes, with the capability of carrying all your gear to the park or the beach or the campsite. Dual 48-volt Samsung lithium battery packs provide incomparable range, with as much as 90 miles between charges! Range depends on each bike model and a number of factors including the weight of the rider, added gear, terrain, tire pressure, temperature, wind speed etc.
The Vista Cruiser uses a step-through frame design with a low 22.5-inch standover height to make it easy for anyone to use and features a comfortably upright riding position. The long-tail layout has a generously sized rear rack to carry just about anything you want to bring along, as well as running boards for accommodating a passenger.
Range anxiety is a concern for most electric vehicles, but not with the Vista Cruiser’s combined battery capacity of 1,368 watt-hours. The lockable battery packs can be charged in or out of the bike. The 750-watt electric motor is hidden in the rear wheel hub, accelerating the bike up to 20 mph on electricity alone, and it can hit nearly 30 mph when pedaling. High-end hydraulic brakes from Tektro combine with big 180mm stainless-steel discs for excellent stopping power.
Gearing is by premium Shimano components, including the Altus shifter and derailleur and the 7-speed Shimano Freewheel gear-set, to provide torque for any condition, while the stainless-steel chain resists corrosion for added durability. Kenda Havok 27.5-inch tires provide sure grip and resistance to punctures.
The Vista Cruiser sports other premium components, like the Buchel 50-lux LED headlight and a new SW900 LCD instrument panel that displays speed, time, temperature and battery condition. The panel also includes a handy USB port to power your electronic devices.
The tapered aluminum handlebar provides a 60-degree range of adjustment to suit any size rider, and lightweight aluminum is also used for the double-wall wheel rims, pedals and crank. The bike also comes with a robust front basket (not shown) that can be used for extra cargo capacity, for a combined capacity of carrying up to 440 pounds of stuff!
A full range of accessories are available from CSC, including a rear seat pad, saddlebags, grab bars, and even a child’s car-seat mount for the rear luggage rack.
The Vista Cruiser provides the optimal balance of quality and value, priced at just $2,488, much cheaper than any similar cargo e-bike on the market.
THE PRICE IS $2488.00 plus $150.00 Shipping to Most locations in the lower 48 US States.
The Vista Cruiser is available in your choice of a classy Black/Cream or a retro Turquoise/Cream.
