IZIP Express Electric Bike: Specs, Video & Pictures
May 30, 2012
The IZIP Express multiplies your power!
Wow! Do you want to feel like a professional bike racer without all the training? If so you should check out the IZIP Express.
It has Evo-Drive that truly multiplies your power while you pedal. The 750 watt motor provides assistance to the rear wheel via a Gates belt and cog on the “other side” of the wheel (see pictures below).
Not only does the Express multiply your power but it also goes the distance. The 36 volt 20 amp hour lithium ion battery pack is double the size of a normal electric bike battery pack.
This post will give you an idea of the specifications of the IZP Express and tease you with some pictures. The video and full review will be coming soon!
