SPACE IS THE NEW FRONTIER
Not outer space, silly. Cargo space on your bike. You will be amazed how far a bike can take you. Together we can take care of this blue-green planet we call home. Our future can be bright like the sun. Ditch the pump and charge up hills solar-powered.
The 8e is designed to be safe, durable, and grow with you for a lifetime. The bike’s small 20” rear wheel makes loading children or cargo easy, and the low center of gravity helps make the bike stable, even riding with your kids. Longer than most other bikes, the ride feels steady, no matter what you’re carrying. Every EdgeRunner is made out of chromoly steel, which is reliable, strong, and lightweight. The comfortable 8e features a low step-over height and an upright riding position. The 8-speed Shimano drivetrain coupled with the potent Bosch Performance Line mid-drive motor will help you quickly and efficiently ride up any hill. Disc brakes stop you in any weather on the way down, and wide tires absorb road shock. EdgeRunner WheelSkirts and a heavy-duty double-legged KickBack kickstand come standard as well. This comes with mounts for the versatile, strong and useful PorterRack, a front tray that attaches to the frame and offer front cargo carrying capacity without sacrificing stability. Add the custom Xtracycle PorterPack and you've increased your front rack carrying capacity by ~29 liters. The integrated Supernova E3 V6S headlight and E3 rear light will ensure you're never caught on a late night ride without lights again (sold separately).
POWERED BY THE ULTIMATE MID DRIVE MOTOR
The Bosch electric bike drive system is the European market leader working with 50 leading European bike brands. With the Bosch's longtime reputation for quality and service, it's no wonder they own 25% of market share in Europe. The Bosch-powered Xtracycle Edgerunner 8E will take you to new heights.
The maintenance-free 250 watt Bosch electric direct drive motor puts out 63Nm of torque and gives you 50% - 275% more power when you need it most. This means that you’ll be able to bike up hills much faster than an elite racer, even carrying heavy loads. The mid-drive motor is incredibly efficient and powerful, so you’ll use much less energy under the same conditions than with any other type of motor. And the Bosch lithium ion battery gives you a range of 20-60 miles. It charges on and off your Xtracycle in 3 ½ hours and to 50% in 1 ½ hours. The Bosch Intuvia console allows you to select the level of electric assist and shows your remaining range, speed, and distance traveled.
EQUIPPED WITH ALL NEW LT2 ACCESSORIES
A full range of Xtracycle LongTail 2 accessories will allow you to adapt the bike as your needs change. Have a child under the age of four? Yepp Easy Fit Maxi kids seats with Xtracycle LT2 Yepp Adapters are the solution. Have a child over the age of four? Add a family pack to your bike, which provides hand and footrests for your passengers. MagicCarpets pad the deck so that your passengers sit comfortably. Order two to cover your deck.

Wall Street Journal - “The lower center of gravity translated into a slightly smoother ride, not only for me but for my wife and daughter, who rode on the back as I pedaled, quite comfortably, to a local park.”
Men’s Journal - “Even fully loaded, the EdgeRunner is surprisingly manageable, thanks to a minuscule 20-inch rear wheel that lowers the center of gravity and extends the wheelbase for extra stability without making the bike longer from end to end.”
Bicycle Times - “Of every cargo bike I’ve ridden (and I’ve ridden a lot), the EdgeRunner is the easiest to ride for both experienced and novice cyclists alike.”
Blog - Hum of the City - “EdgeRunner: Best longtail ever. No contest.”
Blog - Davey Oil - “I am a big fan. A big, big fan. A big, HUGE fan of Xtracycles.”
Blog - Truck Bike - “The verdict thus far: Awesome. It's everything I hoped it would be, and well, even better!”
