“Fat” electric bikes were a hit at this year’s Interbike and IZIP presented their E3 Sumo that features 4″+ wide tires with the TransX 350 watt mid drive system.
Following in the new off road electric bike options is the new IZIP E3 Peak DS, a full suspension e-mtb with 120 mm of travel front and rear and the TransX 350 mid drive.
And that is not all that is new for 2015. A lot of the existing models have improvements in the features as well as looks.
Checkout the following videos with Larry Pizzi (President of Currie Technologies) presenting the new IZIP line at Interbike.

And here are pics of the new 2015 IZIP’s:
The new Sumo is a “fat-e” with 350 watts of mid drive power that can assist up to 28 mph (20 mph with throttle only). The 48V 8.7ah lithium battery is housed on the downtube for good weight distribution. The 4+” wide tires allow the Sumo to roll well in sand, snow, or almost any rough terrain.
The new Peak DS is the full suspension e-mtb with 120mm of travel, the 27.5″ wheels, 350 watt TransX mid drive system, and a good selection of quality components. This bike will go up to 28 mph on pedal assist (20 mph throttle only).
The 2015 IZIP E3 Dash has a very stealthy look with it’s flat black color scheme. This is a city style e-bike with a 500 watt rear hub motor that can fly up to 28 mph with it’s pedal assist mode (20 mph throttle only).
And here is the step thru Path+.
The new Zuma’s have a new assortment of color choices in addition to now running on a 48V system for a little more kick! Note that the battery is housed in the seat tube of the frame.
The step thru Zuma has a stylish look with curved frame tubing.
The IZIP E3 Metro is a cargo style e-bike with built in front and rear racks. This bike won the iF Design’s 2014 Taipei Cycle Design and Innovation Award. It features a 500 watt geared rear hub motor with a 48V 8.7ah lithium battery housed in the seat tube of the frame.
The Compact is a frame from Dahon with IZIP components. Here is a review of the IZIP E3 Compact.
The TWN:exp looks like a folding bike but it is not. It is a smaller bike for easy navigation and storage. It has a 400 watt geared rear hub motor, large 48V 10.4ah lithium battery, mag wheels, cruise control, and more.
That’s it for now. Stay tuned for more IZIP electric bike news.
