Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Offers a decent range for bikes in this price category
The XB-300li features a 20 - 25 mile range (32 - 40 km), which isn't at the top of the line compared to some other devices such as the Xiaomi MiJia QiCycle, but is still very decent for similar bikes in this price category.
Pro Pretty fast
The maximum speed of the X-Treme Trail Maker is about 18 - 20 miles per hour (32 km/h) when using the battery alone, and that speed can be further increased by pedaling.
Pro Supports a high maximum rider and cargo weight
The maximum capacity weight is specified at 350 pounds (158 kg), whereas other electric bikes in a similar price category only allow a maximum capacity of 250 pounds (113 kg).
Pro Doesn't produce much noise
The 300W motor doesn't produce much noise and the electric bike overall gives you a typical rider sensation.
Pro Bike is easily size-adjustable
The bike itself can be adjusted quite well to the size of the rider. The seat is completely adjustable and doesn't require any tools.
Con Assembly can be confusing
The XB-300li is assembled the same way as a regular bike, but the process can still be confusing. Unfortunately, X-Treme doesn't include any assembly instructions in the box.
Con Inaccurate battery level meter
The integrated battery level meter isn't always accurate and is prone to some technical bugs. The battery level often changes from four to two stripes depending on how much you paddle but doesn't seem to indicate an accurate reading overall.
Con Motor drag adds resistance when riding without power
Although the XB-300li can be used without power, the motor drag adds a slight, albeit noticeable resistance and requires you to paddle harder.
Con Bad customer support and warranty handling by Green Max Distributors
In the case of a defect or dead-on-arrival, the buyer is required to pay for shipping costs to the manufacturer, and support tickets take a long time to respond, can be contradictory or don't get resolved at all. The bike comes with a 90 Day X-Treme Warranty, and a 6 Month warranty on the battery.
Con Quite heavy
Weighing in at 51 pounds (23 kgs), the X-Treme bike is noticeably heavier than a regular bike.
