This is the Lynx from Troxus. It’s got a big motor, a big battery, and a very approachable design. Priced at $2,200, this is slightly above our affordable category, but let’s see if the Lynx deserves the price tag.
The Lynx is equipped with a powerful 750W Bafang rear-hub motor, providing a considerable 80Nm of torque. How much power is 750 watts? Well, it’s enough to power 15 toasters. So, whether you’re making breakfast for the Brady Bunch, or trying to get up that hill, This motor delivers an impressive amount of power. The throttle on-demand feature enables you to easily activate the motor and take off like a rocket. With a maximum speed of 20mph on the throttle and up to 28mph with pedal assist, this is considered a Class 3 Ebike.
The Lynx is powered by a 48V/20Ah Samsung lithium battery, providing a range of up to 62 miles on a single charge, which is ample for a full day's ride. Get it? Amp-le? Electrical humor. The battery is located on the bottom of the downtube, which can make it a little more difficult to remove for charging but there’s plenty of room where that’s not an issue. Plus this positioning offers a lower center of gravity and overall stability for the bike.
The Lynx's step-through design makes it easy to mount and dismount, especially if you have knee or back problems. The bike has a weight limit of 350 pounds or 10 adult flamingoes. Either way, it's an impressive statistic.
The Lynx comes equipped with a front suspension fork, which offers 80mm of travel and lockout adjustment. It’s always nice to see some suspension on a bike. My butt thanks you! The Kenda 20"x4" tires are something we’d expect to see on a bike like this, and they fit right in. It would be nice to see sidewall reflective stripes in the future, but that’s a small detail.
The Lynx is equipped with Tektro mechanical disc brakes with 180mm rotors on the front and rear. Now, this may be the only major negative on the bike for me, as I would love to see Hydraulic brakes here. If I am paying $2,200 for an Ebike, especially one that can go up to 28MPH, it would be the first thing I would upgrade if it was sticking around in the garage long term. The brakes are fine, did their job, but I hope Troxus can give us superior stopping power in future models of the bike.
The Lynx comes equipped with a Troxus LCD display that shows your speed, battery level, and other important information. The cockpit features these ergonomic comfort grips that I actually really like! They have a locking point, which is always a bonus in my book. The rear rack can carry about 50 pounds. Now, that doesn’t sound like a lot, but based on the rack design, it could probably handle a bit more. Writer is not a rear rack expert. The previous statements should not be construed as rear rack advice. Please consult with a rear-rack specialist in your area. Legal terms. Legal words. CYA. LOL.
The Lynx from Troxus is more than just a pretty bike. It's a powerful, smooth, and comfortable cruiser that's perfect for anyone who wants to enjoy the benefits of an electric bike. With its powerful motor, large battery, and ergonomic design, you'll feel like you're flying through the streets. And at a price point of $2,200, it's a reasonably-priced Ebike with a pretty dope aesthetic. Thanks for riding with us, and we’ll catch ya on the next one.
