Looking for an easy way to guess-timate your battery range before your head out for your daily errands or adventures? Take a look at the Bosch eBike Range Assistant: https://www.bosch-ebike.com/us/service/range-assistant/
Here are some tips on customizing the Range Calculator to work for your Xtracycle:
1. Rider tab: total weight
A cargo bike is understandably heavier than a non-cargo bike so including that weight in the total weight will give you the most accurate range estimate. An electric EdgeRunner set up with a KickBack, Bosch system and 1 battery roughly weighs: 63 lb. To get the most accurate estimated weight for your bike, check out the bike and accessory weight chart here.
Be sure to add your bike weight to your body weight and the weight of any additional passengers or cargo on board.
2. eBike tab
Drive: The eSwoop or eClassic are the Performance CX or Speed. Pick your Bosch drive unit. All 8/9/10e’s are the Performance line.
Battery: The eSwoop or eClassic are either 400 wH or 500 wH and can have a dual battery set up. All 8/9/10e’s have a 400 wH battery and single battery only.
Type of bicycle: Because cargo bike is not an option, we’d say City Bike is the best option here.
Tire tread: City bike tires are the closest to Schwalbe tires on the EdgeRunner. MTB (cross country) tires are the closest the the tires on the Stoker and RFA.
3. Environment tab
We always assume our terrain and wind conditions will be worse than we anticipate. It’s better to under estimate your range and be wrong than over estimate your range and be wrong!
And keep in mind, as Bosch notes on the Assistant page, “the calculated data comprises estimates and approximations that may vary from the actual result. The precise data will vary, depending on the type of use and the external influences. Furthermore, no liability will be accepted for the correctness of the determined values.”
