Ready to roll! The Prodeco Phantom X3 is decked out with high quality components from Rock Shox, SRAM, AVID, Truvativ, and more!
The Phantom X3 frame is very similar to the Prodeco Outlaw. It has a very relaxed geometry which makes for a laid back ride style.
Here is a close up of the Phantom X3 frame with large aluminum tubing and thick welds.
This is a view of the large seatstays of the Phantom X3 aluminum frame. Note the quick disconnect connector for the rear hub motor.
The Phantom X3 has a 500 watt direct drive rear hub motor that powers the bike up to 20 mph. You can also see the AVID DB hydraulic rear disc brake attached to the motor. These provide good stopping power!
This is the high capacity 38.4V 16ah LiFePO4 battery that comes stock on the Phantom X3. That is a much larger pack than the typical 36V 10ah pack found on a lot of e-bikes.
This is the key that turns the bike on and off and also locks the battery in place.

This is the twist grip throttle on the right side of the handlebars. It has a battery level indicator and an on/off switch for the throttle. The on/off switch for the electrical system is near the battery pack on the rear rack.

The SRAM X7 8 speed rear derailleur.
The Rock Shox XC32 suspension fork with 120 mm of travel provides a smooth ride and also offers a lockout option.
The Truvativ crankset with a single chainring keeps things simple.
The Truvativ HUSS pedals have a large platform and solid grip.
Continential tires are a well known brand of tires and their Traffic tires are a good hybrid tire for road and some off road riding.
This is the tread of the Continential Traffic tire. Notice a relatively smooth center tread for road riding with side knobs for riding off road.
The Velo Plush saddle on the Phantom X3 is a performance style saddle.
The Prodeco Phantom X3 and the open road!
