What I Think

If you watch my video the biggest surprise is the hill climbing ability. It blew away most other ebikes I’ve taken on my hill test. I need to do some additional hill climbing but I am impressed so far.

Its the most powerful ebike Lectric has ever produced and I even hit 29MPH on my speed test run. I do miss not having front suspension though. One of my subscribers told me that cargo ebikes typically don’t come with front shocks because the “range of weight carried on the bike can vary drastically; very difficult to spec out a bike with suspension that can support a 200 lb. rider vs rider plus cargo weight of 400 lb. Rigid fork would keep the handling character consistent, regardless of how much weight the cargo bike is carrying.”

I did see the new Aventon cargo ebike does come with front suspension so it is possible, but those forks do make the ebike more expensive.

Overall the Xpedition is comfortable to ride (I added their comfort package) and it handles well despite its 72 inch length. For what you get for your $1,699 its a tremendous value and will continue to put pressure on other ebike makers when it comes to pricing.
