But that’s not all. You can even choose between riding modes depending on your level or your mood. Still, getting the hang of your bike? Go with Novice Mode. If you’re just cruising around the streets, Standard Mode will do it. But if you’re ready to go on challenging terrain and have the time of your life, go for Sport Mode. Each different riding mode will provide you with settings that will make the ride smoother and more enjoyable.

Quick-Swap, Fast-Charge Batteries

Any high-performing dirt bike will also need a powerful battery and motor. Well, the X160 and X260 have got you covered there. You’re looking at a motor with a maximum power of 5KW and a Lithium battery that takes just 4 hours to charge. 4 hours for a range of 120 km is an amazing feat for any battery. Your protection is also covered since the charging port is defended from overheating, short-circuiting, over-current, and over-charging. But that’s not even the best.

The X160 and X260’s body frame is made from a forged aluminium alloy so you know it’s durable and can withstand the rough surroundings you’ll be riding through.

Not to mention they’re designed for improved control and handling through their 2 shock absorber systems, one in front and one in the rear. Both systems are in place to provide a smoother ride through preventing excess motion, and to support a heavy amount of weight.

Double Drive Systems, Double the Power

Both the X160 and X260 feature a dual-drive system that enhances your wheels’ overall torque power for maximum performance. They can also prevent your chain from dropping out. The dual-drive system consists of a Primary Drive (HTD 8M belt of 56cm) and a Secondary Drive (420 chain with 106 sections). 

Unbeatable Safety

Like any other Segway product, safety is paramount and you’ll absolutely feel secure with all the details the X160 and X260 have. Fully enjoy the freedom of riding to endless adventures with no worries because of the braking systems in place.

The e-bikes have front and back disc brakes and can grab better even under wet situations. Their braking systems can withstand much higher temperatures and have better stopping power than most other methods.

Fully Electric, Eco-Friendly Alternative

What makes the X160 and X260 superior among its peers is that it is fully-electric and low-maintenance.

As we all know, fossil fuels (which we use for gas-powered transports) contribute to carbon emission which is a leading cause of climate change.
