Fucare’s new Gemini X e-bike combines an innovative-looking trellis-style frame with high-performance e-bike parts to create a speedy Class 3 e-bike that looks at home on the streets and trails.
The frame is rated for a 400lb (181kg) load and gives the Gemini X a look of its own, at least for now. We rarely see e-bikes designed for such heavy loads, although we also rarely see e-bikes with this frame design.
Part truss bridge, part mounting assembly, the frame uses narrow diameter tubing that wraps around the front-mounted 48V battery while leaving an open area at the top for battery removal. battery.
A second battery is housed just behind the seat tube, giving a combined capacity of 20.8Ah. With a total battery capacity of 998 Wh, Fucare claims a high range of 88 km (55 miles) under throttle only, or an additional 130 km (80 miles) under pedal assist.
The 750W hub motor in the rear wheel will provide 20mph (32kph) assist on throttle only riding or an even faster 28mph (45kph) when the rider is using the throttle level. highest pedal assist. This keeps the Gemini X in the Class 3 designation for street-legal operation in the United States.
Suspension comes up front with a spring fork that includes both preload adjustment and lockout. Moving a little higher, the bars house a large 5.3” color display to show relevant riding data such as speed, distance, battery charge level, pedal assist mode , etc. There’s also a USB charging port in this display which can be used to help keep your phone or other USB-powered device topped up during your ride.
Backing up along the bike, a Shimano 7-speed drivetrain offers a range of gear ratios for those who will use the pedals as more than offset footpegs.
Both wheels include hydraulic disc brakes for quick, maintenance-free stops, and those wheels are wrapped in 4-inch-wide rubber. The fat tires are just 20 inches in diameter, balancing wide tires for comfort and cornering, while maintaining a smaller diameter for reduced size and improved agility.
A step-by-step version of the e-bike is also available.
Both models include a rear rack, ABS fenders and LED lights for a base price of $1,899. The company is also launching a cable lock, although it looks like you can cut it with a pair of security scissors, so you might want to consider a high-end lock for an e-bike investment of this price.
Those who want to add even more extras like a rear basket can trick the ride for extra utility, but even the base model seems to be spec’d well.
