Built for easy, relaxing rides, step-thru cruisers have drawn the interest of ebikers interested in leisure and taking it easy on their hips since their first days on the market. Available in red, black, or one of two shades of pink, the X-Treme Malibu Beach Cruiser appeals to beach-dwelling retirees of both genders, as well as anyone else who wants a fairly-priced, foldable leisure cruiser—but, as the name of the bike would suggest, the beach-dwelling variety of customer is probably target number one.
With a maximum assisted speed of twenty miles per hour and a maximum range of twenty miles, the Malibu Beach Cruiser isn't exactly the best fit for an urban commuter, nor does it seek to be. The lower range helps greatly with bringing the price point down, perfect for retirees living on a budget. The hybrid pedelec-twist throttle approach to electric motor assist is cool, and would be a welcome feature on just about every ebike there is. The saddle is nice and wide, minimizing posterior strain on extended trips, and the complimentary attachable basket is perfect for bringing a few essentials down to the shore.
The X-Treme Malibu Bach Cruiser is well-built for the market it seeks to appease, and is one of several X-Treme products that basically directly calls out to their intended customers in the product title. The Newport Beach Cruiser is like this one minus the step-thru frame, and the Trail Climber Elite is a step-thru ebike for the true outdoorsmen among us.
Works fine and assembly was fairly easy but I don't think it is built of the best materials as it seems rather flimsy.
I was able to assemble it fairly easily...The bike ran well...You only need to pedal very lightly to engage the motor and get up to speed.
The bike is beautiful. It has tons of bells and whistles and was easy to assemble. It's so easy to ride and I love that throttle going up hills!
Runs very well just the way it should. No nasty surprises. Somewhat demanding adjustment wise...No means to identify how much battery juice left.
I enjoy riding it by myself using pedal assist...battery is pretty light weight and doesn't seem to interfere with me riding as a standard bicycle and I like that.
Works as advertised and arrived in sound condition...the instructions were a little bit confusing. The bike itself is fun to ride and comfortable.
The bike looks just like the pictures and its a fun little ride for a 64 year old woman who needs to get moving but isn't able to keep up on a traditional bike.
If you are technically gifted you should have no problem putting it together...I have no problems with balance or suspension...I find it to be very stable as I go along.
It's nice to kick on the pedal assist or just sit back and turn the throttle without any pedaling...everything was just fine once the bike was assembled.
It is a really solid bike. Riding it is comfortable and easy. The front rack is perfect to fit my purse. The brakes work really well. The tires are really sturdy.
