Smartmotion

Smartmotion X-City

What it's built for:
The X-city from New Zealand bike outfit Smartmotion is a dedicated crossroad variant of their new MidCity. Like the Mid it has a comfortable, upright riding position and uses a powerful mid-drive motor to provide great efficiency and range, but this bike was dressed up to excel where the pavement ends. With chunky tyres and active front suspension, this bike is ready to tackle dirt roads, gravel trails, and even some light single track. But don't worry it keeps the city practicality with full fenders, heavy-duty rack, and integrated lights.

Why we love it:
The X-City highlights a key benefit of riding an electric bike, the ability to bring along offroad equipment without weighing you down. Before ebikes, you generally had to choose between a city bike and an adventure bike because things like nobby tyres and suspension forks weigh quite a bit. But with the help of an electric motor you can have both every day. With the X-City your ride to work may be cruising along a paved esplanade but the ride home could take you up into the hills helping you find a little adventure every time you ride.

Stop in for a test ride of the X-city today!

Though we’re a bike shop that sells, builds and fixes bicycles, they’re really just the means to an end; albeit a beautifully designed means to an idyllic end. Our job most importantly is to encourage as many people as we can to get out and ride for transport and enjoyment. We'd love to make riding a bike as commonplace as your morning cup of coffee, which by the way is our other obsession.

Bicycle Junction is situated at 1 Marion St, Te Aro, Wellington.
