The five levels of pedal assist on the Lectric XP 3.0 provide a range of options to suit your riding style and terrain. The bike can go up to a maximum speed of 20mph. You can choose from gentle assistance to give you a boost on hills or full assistance to power you along on a straightaway.

For those times when you need a little more speed or power, the half-twist throttle on the XP 3.0 delivers pure power on demand.

The twist throttle is easy to use and provides a quick boost whenever you need it, making it ideal for commuting or longer rides.

Another advantage of the Rear Rack is that it allows you to free up your hands while you ride, making operating the bike safer and more comfortable. You won’t have to worry about holding onto your bags or backpack while you ride, and you can focus on the road ahead instead.

The Rear Rack also adds to the overall aesthetic appeal of the Lectric XP 3.0. It complements the design of the bike and provides a sleek and stylish look that will turn heads wherever you go.

Lectric XP 3.0 Brakes
The Lectric XP 3.0 is equipped with 180mm mechanical disc brakes that provide ultimate stopping power in wet or dry conditions. These brakes are responsive and easy to use, allowing you to quickly slow down or come to a complete stop as needed. The mechanical disc brakes are also low-maintenance and long-lasting, reducing the need for frequent adjustments or replacements.
In addition to the mechanical disc brakes, the Lectric XP 3.0 also features motor inhibitors, which automatically cut off power to the motor when you apply the brakes. This added safety feature helps to prevent accidents by ensuring that the bike stops as quickly as possible when you need it to. It’s especially useful when riding in crowded areas or on steep hills, where sudden stops may be necessary.
Despite all its features, the Lectric XP 3.0 weighs in at just 64lbs with the 7lb battery installed. Its foldable design also guarantees that it will fit into virtually any compact space, making it perfect for those living in small apartments or with limited storage space.

Lectric XP 3.0 Safety Features
For added safety, the Lectric XP 3.0 includes a passenger mode that limits the maximum speed to 10mph when a passenger is on the bike. This feature ensures that the bike is more stable and easier to control with the added weight of a passenger, reducing the risk of accidents or injuries. It’s a great feature for those who enjoy riding with a friend or family member, especially on leisurely rides through the park or around the neighborhood.
The Lectric XP 3.0 features an integrated safety system that includes a headlamp and taillight combination, both powered by the internal battery. The lights are designed to make you more visible to other motorists and pedestrians, helping to keep you safe while you ride.
