KTM Freeride E XC Review

KTM Freeride E XC

If you’re looking for an e-bike that will get you up and down hills and through trails with minimal effort, look no further.ktm freeride e xc The Freeride E-XC was designed as a research and development project, but it is so fun to ride that KTM decided to release it as a full-blown production model. With a powerful motor and suspension, the Freeride E-XC can easily compete with bikes in its class. Its frame, tires, and electronics are all top-notch, but it’s not meant to be a motocross racer or a hard-core trail bike.

The e-bike uses a composite frame that combines high quality chrome-molybdenum steel with bolt-on forged aluminum sections to ensure the highest rigidity and stability.ktm freeride e xc Its open lower section allows for easy access to the motor and battery, which helps keep weight low. The electric motor uses energy recuperation when coasting or braking to extend its range. The battery can be fully charged in just 110 minutes, and it offers up to a full day of riding on a single charge.

KTM’s state-of-the-art control unit is responsible for the bike’s responsive, yet highly tractable power delivery.ktm freeride e xc The unit is water cooled, which helps protect the electronics and ensures it will function correctly under any conditions. The control unit is mounted on the right side of the handlebar and is easy to use. It also features (3) maps that can be used to change the power output of the Freeride E-XC. Map 1 is 50% power and perfect for first time or inexperienced riders. Map 3 is full power and feels so capable and quick off the line. I ride Map 3 all the time.

Suspension-wise, the Freeride E-XC is a bit heavier than some competitors, but it still handles beautifully.ktm freeride e xc It uses a 43mm WP fork with separate compression- and rebound-damping adjustability. The linkageless WP shock has similar adjustments, and the two work together to provide plush suspension that is well suited to off-road trail riding (too soft for motocross). Brakes are also borrowed from the 85 SX youth machine, and the rotors are fatter to support the extra mass.

The front and rear tires are made by Maxxis and feature a high land-sea ratio tread pattern that creates less of a footprint on the ground and provides excellent traction. They are also tubeless, which reduces tire pressure and increases traction while lowering rolling resistance. The rear tire is wider than the front, which helps with handling and stability. The tires are fitted to a WP XPlor 43 fork that features split fork legs with separate compression and rebound damping adjustability.
