Almost everyone has the memory of riding Schwinn as a child. But the fun did not stop, especially the company's electric bicycle series. Now, with the launch of three new models consisting of Schwinn Marshall, Coston CE and Coston DX, more choices are provided.
These three new models are available in S/M or L/XL sizes, getting rid of the one-size-fits-all ideology common in the field of value electric bicycles.
The 7-speed electric bike also offers a traditional straddle frame or a more convenient mid-step/low-step frame.
Schwinn Marshall is the brand's new off-road electric bicycle.
The bicycle uses 2.3"x27.5" tires and is powered by a 250W rear hub motor. Not exactly a powerful force, but it will allow you to advance at speeds of up to 20 mph (32 km/h) with the assistance of accelerator or pedal.
The 288 Wh battery is integrated in the down tube of the bicycle. Schwinn says you can get a range of 35 miles (56 kilometers), although this sounds like a pedal assist-only range. Riding on the throttle may get into range faster.
Including headlights and taillights, as well as new battery lights in the down tube. The battery light may not illuminate the road for you, but it will make it easier for you to be seen by surrounding cars at night.
Marshall is priced at $1,499 on Amazon.
Although Marshall's wide tires and front suspension make it an excellent choice for light off-road vehicles, Coston CE has a dual role on trails or highways.
It retains the front suspension and stride frame options, but the middle stride option is replaced by a lower frame, providing true stride accessibility. It also adds a suspended seatpost to provide more cushioning when riding.
Coston CE benefits from the accompanying mudguards, which are an important function for urban commuters who have to deal with puddles or rainwater.
Electric bicycles still have five levels of pedal assist and thumb throttle, providing speeds of up to 20 mph (32 km/h). It also has the same battery and range as Marshall.
Schwinn Coston CE is priced at $1,699 on Amazon.
For riders looking for more upgrades designed for real commuting, Coston DX may be the answer.
Coston DX adds an included rear shelf and even has a unique storage saddle that can be flipped up to store small items such as wallets, keys or mobile phones. You can also get a shock absorber seat tube, but the front suspension fork is replaced by a rigid fork designed for purer commuter riding.
Another recognition of its commuter design is the larger 360Wh battery, which claims a cruising range of up to 45 miles (72 kilometers). Yes, those cool down tube lights on the battery are still there.
The capacity of 360 Wh is still not close to the industry average, but these electric bikes seem to be designed to combine casual cycling with moderate urban commuting—not long-distance travel.
Coston DX still offers the same top speed as other bikes in the series, keeping the needle tip at 20 mph (32 km/h).
For the highest specification product in the lineup, drivers will have to pay more than $1,999.
