C3STROM Astro Pro E-Bike Review! The Ultimate Speed Bike
Hello everyone. I’m back with another e-bike review, this time focusing on the C3stromAstro Pro, which currently has two distinct models. The difference between the Astro and the Astro Pro is a 20 amp battery instead of a 15 amp battery. So you get a bit more power and a bit more acceleration, but otherwise, it’s the same bike. Same frame, same seat, same brakes, same everything.
I make tech videos mostly about phones and smartphones, but this one, in particular, drew me in and I was really excited to try it out. I was approached months ago and told, “Hey, we’ll send you this when it’s ready.” This is essentially a cafe racer e-bike; it has a lot of acceleration and is very quick. It goes up to about 28 miles per hour if you’re in an off-road mode which you can enable in the app or if you go into the manual mode in the menu. You can go up to 32 miles per hour but it cautions you to do it on a private road because it’s not street-legal that way. I believe there’s something that says you’re not supposed to go over 30 miles per hour. Whatever, be careful. This is unlike any other product on the market. You can adjust the suspension on the front fork, but you can’t adjust the suspension in the back, so when you go over the front of things, you’re fine, but when you go over something like a road bump, you do feel it more in the seat.
What attracts me?
I would like to discuss what initially drew my attention to this bike. In contrast to traditional e-bikes, other than the appearance, which is aggressive, stylish, and sleek. It doesn’t resemble any other bicycle. This item features hydraulic brakes, which aren’t like the brakes you’d find on a regular bicycle. This will slow you down quickly and efficiently, which is great and complementary given that you’re zipping around with so much power.
What’s so cool about it is that you can use it like a motorcycle; it has a throttle on the right side, hand brakes, and all that good stuff; however, you can also pedal it, so if the battery were completely dead, you could still ride this thing around if you needed to in an emergency; however, they claim it can travel up to 78 miles on a single charge if you have the Pro model and over 30 miles on the throttle mode alone; that’s pretty impressive. It gives you a very enthusiast-like sensation when you ride it, almost as if you’re an avid cyclist. I was just talking to my wife about how much I miss having a motorcycle, and then I started riding this. It’s a nice alternative because you don’t have to worry as much as you would on a motorcycle going 70 miles per hour on an open road, but you can put around and use it downtown.
The mobile application
It even has a mobile application that allows you to change the units of measurement from metric to American standard imperial. You can set a password, view your ride logs and see how many miles you’ve traveled, as well as examine the battery’s health and statistics. This is also where you set the off-road mode or regular mode, so it’s pretty cool. Simple to set up and pair The app is available on both Android and iOS, so you’re covered there.
Some details of C3strom
There’s a USB charger on the left-hand column, which is nice because you can charge your phone that way using the bike’s built-in battery if you absolutely have to. It’s one amp, which isn’t the fastest, but it’ll do in a pinch. Let’s talk more about what’s going on with this bike: it has hydraulic brakes, turn signals, and separate lights.
Again, a 3.5-inch LCD display, a 20-amp battery for the pro model, and a 15-amp battery for the standard model, as well as a half-twist throttle and hydraulic disc brakes. Shimano seven-speed control so you’ve got seven different gears that will change how much effort you need to put into pedaling this bike. Five different levels of pedal assistance, you can have it off so basically it’s six you get zero which is off one two three four five. You start pedaling it kicks in if you even pedal a little bit. It’s crazy how fast this thing goes and it’s so low profile that it feels like you’re on a motorcycle or an old street bike if you’re from my generation, but it’s a lot of fun and really fun to ride, even for smaller children, as you’ve seen in the video where I bribe my son with some McDonald’s and take him to Gamestop. I hardly ever had to charge the battery, and it’s removable with a key. If you don’t lock the battery back in place, it will fall off while you’re riding, which is a safety hazard and bad for the battery.
An e-bike, also a motorcycle
This basically feels like a motorcycle, but it’s an e-bike. Honestly, I would like to see something like an e-motorcycle that would be really cool. I know that some people make them, but to be able to ride one of these around and go like actually on the road would be pretty cool. This is a lot of fun to ride, and it’s something useful that you can use to putt around town. There are a variety of accessories available for it, which you can find at the link below. The 15 amp battery is expected to take approximately four hours to charge, while the 20 amp battery requires approximately five hours to charge. I think that’s pretty fair because most of the time you’re going to be charging this at night because you’re going to be riding it all day and maybe even all week. this is something that you can ride for a really long time.
Have your own C3strom and enjoy your riding
So riding is pleasant, it has a nice weight, and it’s made of aluminum alloy. It weighs just over ninety pounds, so it is not light by any means, but it does have a really good premium build quality, and I think that this thing is made really well. Of course, there are going to be some optional accessories.
All of that information is available on their website in conjunction with the launch of this product, and it is a great bike that gives you the sensation of riding a street bike, an e-bike, a moped, a cafe racer, or something with class three level performance and off-road performance as well. It’s equipped with some serious tires.
You don’t have to worry about losing connection traction on the ground while you’re riding, and other than that, it’s a wonderful experience. It’s fun to ride around, the rack on the back supports up to 33 pounds so you can tie things down if you need to, and I think they did a great job overall because I really enjoyed it. It has the peak performance on anything I’ve seen in the e-bike world and as someone who rode motorcycles for over 12 years, I had a Harley, a Suzuki, I had all sorts of stuff switching over to this e-bike life and putting around on this. It’s a lot of fun. You get the wind in your hair, of course, and you need to wear a helmet because you can get going pretty fast on these things, especially out riding around the roads.
