The new Prodeco Outlaw is a powerful and fast electric mountain bike!
It pushes right up against the US e-bike power limit of 750 watts (1 Horsepower) and the Outlaw SS model can go up to 28 mph with throttle only!
First of all, the new Prodeco Outlaw electric bike just looks tough! It’s oversized aluminum frame, the double crown suspension fork with 140 mm (5.5 inches) of travel, the knobby tires, and it’s well rounded component package with SRAM, Avid, Truvativ, and Continental brands make it an off road worth e-bike.
There are 3 different models of the Prodeco Outlaw e-bike. The Outlaw SE and EX are identical except for the frame colors; the SE is white and the EX is charcoal. Both the SE and EX provide assistance up to 20 mph (US limit to still be considered a bicycle).
The Outlaw SS comes in Orange and it can travel up to 28 mph! The Outlaw SS is technically an “off road only” electric bike because it goes above the 20 mph limit with throttle only. So…….if you ride it on the road, just be aware that you riding at your own risk if a police officer ever questions how fast you are going 🙂
Let’s get into a few of the e-bike specs. The motor is a 750 watt direct drive rear hub type. The battery pack is a 48 volt 9 ah LiFePO4 (Lithium Iron Phosphate) that sits on the rear rack of the Outlaw. Prodeco claims that the battery life will be 2,000 charging cycles. The charge time is 4 hours.
Prodeco chose a thumb throttle for the Outlaw because they wanted to provide a way for the rider to have maximum grip on the handlebars.
