C3strom Astro Pro

Welcome to my review of the C3strom Astro Pro Ebike. This exceptional electric bike is designed for off-road adventures and urban commuting. In this article, we will take an in-depth look at the features, performance, and specifications of the bike.

They offer a non-pro version of this bike that is slightly cheaper, but the only difference between the two is the battery. The pro version has a 20 amp hour battery and a 52-volt system, and the bike looks great with several issues that have been fixed, such as the shifter being upside down on the left-hand side. The bike performs fantastically and feels great to ride, with a top speed of 32 miles an hour, though the speaker notes that they were able to hit 35 miles an hour. The bike has a 750-watt rear motor, with a peak power of 1200 or 1400 watts, and includes features such as turn signals, a headlight, and a half-twist throttle. The bike also has a rear rack that can hold an extra battery, which is useful if the battery runs low while riding.

I will certainly discuss the advantages and disadvantages of this bike, as although it was given to me for free, the company has allowed me to express my honest opinions about it.

Tail part

Let’s start at the back of the bike, where you will notice the tail light located at the very top and far end of the bike, which I appreciate for its high visibility. However, I do feel that there was a missed opportunity to include a cool brake light in this area. Additionally, I do like the logo placement here, but I think it would have been even better if they had added some additional design elements. Moving on, we have the rear rack, which has holes that allow for the attachment of bags, which the company sells on its website. I particularly like these holes because they provide an option to attach an additional battery using a rail, enabling you to swap batteries for double the range.

You have some sleek fenders that are not commonly found on bikes. The fenders can be detached easily from a small section, so there’s no need to remove the entire piece from the bike. These plastic fenders are lighter than metal ones, which is beneficial since the bike already weighs around 92-94 pounds. The fender extends all the way to the front, providing full coverage and preventing any splashing while riding. The bike has a 750-watt Bafang+ motor, eight speeds at the back, and a Shimano Altus derailleur. However, in gear number one, the chain comes very close to the rim and tire, but it’s unlikely that you’ll be using that gear unless you’re starting from a stop. The bike has a standard crank and pedals with a logo behind them. Bolts are present that can be used to attach a water bottle holder or other accessories. The top section has air vents located behind the battery, but they are only for aesthetic purposes and do not serve any functional purpose. The screws used to attach them look cheap up close, but it’s not noticeable from a distance. The vents underneath the bike do not have any functionality and are just there to enhance the bike’s appearance.

Battery

Moving on to the battery, let’s start by mentioning that this particular electric bike comes with a 20 amp hour battery. However, if you opt for the non-pro model, the battery is slightly smaller. As you may already know, batteries are one of the most costly components of electric bikes, and you may need to replace or upgrade them to get more range. For instance, if you don’t want to carry the extra weight of a battery on the back rack, you might consider upgrading to a 24-amp-hour battery. This upgrade could add four extra amp hours and potentially provide you with up to 32 miles of range if you use only the throttle. However, based on my experience, I get around 26 to 28 miles of range on average, given my weight and type of riding. The terrain and the rider’s weight will significantly impact the bike’s range. Using the lowest pedal assist level, you could achieve up to 70 miles of range, but you’ll have to pedal the whole time, and the speed will be slow. Nonetheless, some people might find it useful.

To remove the battery, you need to use the keys on one side to unlock it, and then the keys must come out to avoid hitting the bar on the other side, which could bend them. Taking the battery out isn’t straightforward, and you need to be cautious to avoid smashing your fingers. If you have large hands, it might be a bit more challenging. Compared to other bikes, getting the battery in and out of this bike is a bit harder, but not impossible. Currently, I am eager to test if this other battery fits in the bike, although it won’t be used for our writing test. It turns out that it doesn’t fit, so upgrading to a slightly larger battery is not an option. Nonetheless, this is not the fault of the company; I simply wanted to experiment.

Front part

Moving to the front, the bike features a serial number on the frame, good suspension, and a unique fender design that complements the motorcycle look they are going for. Unlike most bikes, there is no headlight, but there is a large headlight up front, and a beautiful sequential turn signal. The rims of the bike have a cool motorcycle type of style, which is also evident in the mag wheels from Bafang, which have a Bafang logo. The fat tires, measuring 20 by 4.25, are the highlight of the bike. They are motorcycle-grade and very thick, making them less susceptible to punctures. The hydraulic brakes on both sides are excellent, and the cable management is decent, although some zip ties may be necessary to clean them up a bit. The headlight is high-quality, with a C3strom logo on top, but the beam is more focused and less wide than other headlights.

Seat

I would say that the seat on this bike is exceptional, perhaps one of the best seats I have ever sat on. It offers a lot of space due to the slight incline, providing ample cushioning for sitting on the bike. Now that we’re on the bike, let me show you that I have installed a mirror on this side. Adding a mirror to this bike is a simple process – all you need to do is remove the bar end cap, slide in the mirror, and tighten it up. The grips on the handlebars are quite nice, although I did notice that mine had loosened slightly. However, they are locking grips, so I can easily fix that. The shifter on this bike has been improved; the numbers now go in the correct order, unlike before when they were upside down. I understand why people were unhappy about this, as the shifter was originally supposed to be on the other side. But now, with the left-side shifter in place, that issue has been resolved.

Display button

Moving on to the button layout, we have the ability to access settings by holding this button down. The plus and minus buttons are used to adjust the pedal assist modes, and the on/off button is used to turn the display on or off. Speaking of the display, I must say that it looks fantastic. It’s all digital and very aesthetically pleasing. One of the things I love about this bike is that it has a memory mode, which means that it starts off in the mode that you last used. Some people may argue that this isn’t a good idea, especially if someone else tries to ride the bike and accidentally hits the throttle, but I appreciate not having to cycle through the modes every time I ride. Additionally, you can put the bike in assist mode zero, which disables the throttle, ensuring that the bike won’t move if you just want to keep the headlight on. Lastly, I like that the display cycles through various settings, such as Speed Max and average speed, which is a nice touch.

Light system switch

Moving to the right side of the bike, there is a headlight button, which I find very convenient, as well as the turn signal. The horn is also located here, but it may be too loud for some people, and it would have been better if there was a proper horn like the ones on other motorcycles. The half-twist throttle is also on this side, which is nice, although some people may find it uncomfortable due to its size. The negative button on the switch can be used to activate the walking mode, where the bike can be walked next to you. When the brakes are applied, the lights get brighter, which is a feature I appreciate. The bike also has a daytime running light, and to turn on the headlight, you need to press the button located here. You can also change the setting for the headlights in the app that comes with the bike. Additionally, there are high and low beams available.

Speed

Once you obtain this bike, it will only reach a maximum speed of 28 miles per hour. However, there is an app called C3strom that can be downloaded on your iPhone or Android device, which allows you to access the off-road mode and increase the speed. It is important to note that using this mode may not be legal in your local area, and it is advised to check the regulations beforehand. Despite the speed limitation, the bike has a smooth throttle and can still reach up to 27.6 miles per hour without any issues. Additionally, when pedaling, the bike performs exceptionally well, especially in the lowest gear. Although the motor may be loud, it does not impact the overall riding experience. Lastly, the bike has an attractive appearance when viewed in the sunlight.

Brake

The Astro Pro comes equipped with four-piston brake calipers, which provide exceptional stopping power, as we’ll demonstrate in the brake test. Despite having no rear suspension, the fenders fully cover the tires, and nothing appears to fly off. While it may not be the best bike for off-roading due to the lack of rear suspension, the seat compensates for it, absorbing all of the vibrations and making it very comfortable. The tires are not designed for off-roading but perform nicely on the road. The braking is fantastic, and if I were to replace the brakes on my Super 73, I would do it immediately. During the test, the bike reached high speeds, and the brakes performed incredibly well without causing any skidding. The bike traveled five miles on a single charge, and only one battery bar out of five was used.

Test

Now that we are riding with the wind, I am curious to know what our maximum speed could be. Let’s push the bike to its limits as we ride down this slight incline. With the help of the wind, we could potentially reach speeds of 30 or even 34 miles per hour. I will pedal to see if it makes any difference. Oh, I managed to hit 35 mph the other day when the battery was fully charged, but I also almost slipped out since this bike doesn’t have all-terrain tires. I advise you to be cautious if you plan on riding this bike on dirt. You can change the tires, but the ones it comes with are excellent. Riding in the dirt is mostly smooth, with just a few bumps here and there, and the bike handles them like a pro. However, I must mention that my hand hurts because the grip is too small, and the throttle is too big for my hand size. A thumb throttle would have been more comfortable, but it would not have fit because of the headlight switch, turn signal, and horn button. The grip could be slightly thicker to make it more comfortable.

I did not mention earlier that I wanted to adjust the preload on my bike when going off-road. However, this bike has a preload adjustment on one side and compression adjustment on the other. Adjusting the preload is important to ensure that there is no sag on the bike when you sit on it, and I felt a little bit of sag when I first got on the bike. So, I need to turn it up slightly. Although these adjustments are great, once you set them, you won’t need to adjust them again unless you gain or lose weight or someone else rides your bike. One of my biggest complaints about this bike is that it does not have a rear suspension. While I initially thought it was unnecessary, it would have been nice to have. The wheels look great but are not light, which contributes to the bike’s weight of over 90 pounds. If you want a lighter bike, you’ll have to consider something else. The 750-watt motor performs well, but I would have preferred the bike to weigh around 80 pounds instead of over 90. Another downside of this bike is removing the battery, which might not be a problem for some people. However, if you need to take the battery off to charge it in your house, it’s not as easy as most e-bikes out there, although it’s not too difficult. This inconvenience may be a problem for some people.

Another concern for taller riders is that when pedaling, their feet may come up higher than on other e-bikes, potentially causing discomfort. This seems to be the case with this particular bike, and riders over six feet tall may find it difficult to pedal comfortably. However, many buyers of this bike may not even pedal it and instead rely solely on the throttle. After riding for 10 miles, the battery has gone down one bar for every five miles, indicating a range of about 25 miles, which is similar to other bikes on the market. Although the bike has a 20 amp hour battery, it is still heavy, and riders should consider their location before purchasing. While there are a few minor drawbacks, such as the suspension, the pros of this bike outweigh them. It can be challenging to find reasons not to buy this bike, aside from the relatively high price point of $2,700 (previously priced at $2,000 during an Indiegogo campaign). If given the choice between this bike and the Super 73, and not planning to upgrade to a 72-volt system, the reviewer would choose this bike. The only reason to choose the Super 73 would be the larger community of enthusiasts and the potential for more significant upgrades.

In conclusion, the reviewed electric bike has several notable features, including a 750-watt rear motor, a top speed of 32 miles per hour, turn signals, a headlight, and a half-twist throttle. The bike also has a rear rack that can hold an extra battery, providing the rider with the option to swap batteries for double the range. However, the bike’s weight is around 92-94 pounds, and some of its components, such as the screws used to attach air vents, look cheap up close. Removing the battery is also a bit harder than on other bikes, and getting it in and out requires some caution. The bike’s fenders are lightweight and easy to detach, and the fat tires are motorcycle-grade and less susceptible to punctures. The hydraulic brakes on both sides are excellent, and the cable management is decent, although some zip ties may be necessary to clean them up a bit. Overall, this bike could be an excellent option for those who need a powerful and durable electric bike with a high top speed and a decent range. However, potential buyers should keep in mind its weight and some of its design elements that could be improved. This bike is a great choice for riders who want a motorcycle-style e-bike with many exciting features.

This time we’re talking about the C3strom Astro Pro. When you look at this bike, the only thing that comes to mind is a motorcycle. It’s a stunning bike with amazing style and flare, and I have to say that it even has the sensation of riding a motorbike. Let’s check out the specifications and go for a ride. The Astro Pro has 1400 watts of peak power and a 1040-watt Samsung battery that will provide you with power and, according to me, distance. It will allow you to travel up to 78 miles with pedal assistance and 32 miles on electricity alone. However, if you’re planning to use this bike in one gear, you should be aware that it doesn’t. It is going to go anywhere from five three to six three.

This item is made to be ridden on, and when you look at the bike’s overall design, it is similar to any other bike we’ve had on the channel up to this point. It has an eight-speed Shimano system, and it has a maximum weight load capacity of 330 pounds, which includes both your weight and any additional items you might want to carry. For those of you who are curious, the seat height is 30.6 inches. It has a four-piston hydraulic brake system in addition to an aluminum alloy frame. It also has a pedal assist mode obviously zero to five pedal assist modes, and it also has puncture-resistant tires which are going to give you that peace of mind when you’re on the road they’re fat tires so these are designed for traction. This bike has a gorgeous LED arrangement for turning signals and also for brake lights. Everything on this bike is really about attention to detail and you can see it just on the treatment of all the accents and even the LEDs. 

This bike is made for the outdoors and has the look to match. It has a pedal assist mode that, as you might expect, ranges from zero to five. It also has puncture-resistant tires that will give you confidence when you’re on the road. These are fat tires, so they’re designed for snow, sand, and dirt, so this is going to go anywhere bike. However, you’re talking about 20 inch 4.25 wide tires, and it does have an ipx6 rating.

 

Take a close look at the e-bike

Let’s take a closer look at this gorgeous bike. This is the C3stromAstro Pro. It essentially has a 750-watt powertrain that you can see right here in the back. However, that powertrain will really give you the ability to go pretty far. You’re looking at a 78-mile range, which will undoubtedly be with pedal assistance at this time. If you want to ride this completely electric without using any kind of pedal, you can expect a range of about 32 miles. However, it does have two classes because we said this is a class three e-bike, which means the top speed on the road will be 28 miles per hour. Charging time for something like this will take four to five hours, which is not bad given the capacity of the battery. This is a 1040-watt Samsung battery. Now that it has two classes, as we mentioned, this is a class three e-bike, so the top speed on the road will be 28 miles per hour and that will vary depending on your body weight and a lot of other conditions. So it’s going to be about wind and it’s also going to be the inclination but you can expect depending on your body weight and also the driving conditions to hit 28. Now, if you travel off-road, it has an off-road mode that will increase the speed to 32 miles per hour, which will be again very considerable. Even though we said that this was a 750-watt, kind of powertrain, you can look at a 1400-watt peak coming from this.

The other thing you’ll notice is this Shimano eight-speed gear system right here If you’re looking at pedaling you’re definitely going to be able to pedal with this and given the tire profile that you see there, which is again a 20 by 4.25 puncture-resistant tires, you’re going to be able to support around 330 total pounds on this bike. And the frame you’re viewing is made of aluminum alloy, which is pretty, really excellent. The other feature I’ll highlight on the back is that this does have hydraulic brakes; it has a really nice braking system. One thing you’ll notice here on the back is that the actual fenders are worry-free fenders. They are made out of plastic material, so you don’t have to worry about rust. More importantly, I really like how much coverage you get.

This is actually kind of like the Fender mud guard ends where the chain beneath the chain is in the bottom over there, which I think is pretty cool because it covers so much of the tire. This means that as you’re riding it if you’re using this as a last-mile device to get to the office, you don’t have to worry about yourself. These go really far out, so it probably is one of the furthest I’ve seen. It’s not intended for two people to sit here in the back, but if you want to bring some items with you, such as a laptop, a backpack, or a day bag, you can certainly do so. 

One more thing we’ll point out is that the chain system is one of the longest chain systems I’ve seen on a bike. It may be because of the frame itself, but did you notice how long this is? This is really, really long. I haven’t seen this on any other bike. But I really like the design. I like how open it is right here. Additionally, one of the things you’ll need to pay attention to is how much you’re leaning on this. I have a feeling that those pedals do go pretty far down, so I can see how you might be able to scrape those depending on which side you’re leaning to. This angle over here is better, and I think you’ll get a better idea of how much these fenders cover by how much they describe it.

This area will give you a better view of the front tire. As you look at here, the actual brake system, you get a really nice view of this like the attention to detail everything fits so well it’s kind of reminiscent of a motorcycle. Now, this is your four-piston brake system, a heavy duty brake system that I would say is more inspired by motorcycles than anything else.

This bike actually has turning signals, so let’s turn them on so you can get an idea of how the lighting system looks. Again, this is a really beautiful display. You can then see how it’s not just a blinking but rather that breathing experience as it travels to each one of the sides. You’ll also notice that these are your turning signals on each one of these sides. You’ll also notice on each one of these sides these are your turn signals, and you heard that right this bike actually has turning signals let’s turn them on all right. One of the cool things about this brake light is that it syncs with the turning signal so you don’t really have two different light systems, such as a brake light and then a left and right marker. The brake light then basically transforms itself and as you can see how it’s basically growing from right to left because that’s how my signal is pointing it’s actually converted this from being a brake to a turning signal in daylight people are going.

This is the bike’s battery, and it does have a switch here that will be your flip switch, and then here is your actual charging port, so go ahead and open this up so you can see what this looks like. The good thing about this is that this is an IP6 B5-rated bike. You can see it has a proprietary plug, but I’m fine with that.

Here’s another nice angle so you can see this and again it’s just the attention to detail you have here you have the logo also embedded into the frame but what you then have is this battery that tucks away really nicely. This entire piece comes out with the keys and I’ll show you where the key area is. Then you’ll notice here that there’s a really nice flaring that we’ll look at from a different angle not functional but definitely stylish.

The handlebar is again heavily influenced by motorcycles and has a wonderful, I would say, distance to it as well as a nice height. When riding this bike, I didn’t feel like I was leaning forward excessively; the handlebar is very much inspired by motorcycles and has a nice, I would say distance from it as well as a nice height. Your display is also very bright; it will give you a lot of information as you’re riding. You also have your memory area, which will be moving from function to function; this button right here is for that memory area. Your gear shifter is located at this on the side we’ll take a closer look at it. It’s a little different it’s on your left side, most gear systems are on the right but I’ve written many bikes that have it on the left side. It doesn’t take too much to get used to it and it’s also a twist gear system.

Despite the lack of a rear suspension system other than what is provided by the tires, the ride is incredibly comfortable. As you concentrate on the right handle, which is where you basically have your throttle so you have it again, you’ll notice that the saddle is extremely very soft. This is your throttle and it’s a twist throttle. I like how it’s positioned here, but one thing I would advise is to always set it to zero whenever you stop the bike or come to a stop. You don’t want to accidentally throttle this, especially if you’re just doing some light pedaling, so I like switching it to zero. Then you can have everything that’s right here now. You can also choose between your low beam and high beam here, as well as your turning signals, which we’ve already seen. In addition, you have an electronic horn that is powerful and not a toy horn, and you also have brakes up here, which include both front and rear brakes.

One of the things that I noticed in early reviews for this bike was that the numbers were upside down because it appears that they had used one that was designed for the right side. This has been corrected, so your numbers are listed correctly. I don’t really pay attention to this closely, but all you have to do is twist up and twist down, and the shifting system just responds, which is also really nice. You also have your power button. You also have a USB charging port, so if you want to charge your phone or, for example, a phone mount that is connected to the bike, you can do that from the bike itself. The key, which is not needed to start the bike because you have the power button on the side, is only used to remove the battery. I would go here and simply twist it, and I highly recommend you do that, especially if you’re going to park this somewhere.  

 

A bike or a motorcycle?

This is one of the best bikes we’ve seen on the channel so far, and as you can see, I’m pedaling. I actually have pedal assistance on, but I’m going to turn it off for a moment so that I could just do the human power piece. At this point, you can see me pedaling without any help at all. I also have it in very light gear, so there’s really not a lot of effort going into my pedaling, so I’m a little cheating. However, this is an eight-speed bike with two modes. It’s a class three bike with off-road modes that go up to 32 miles per hour. 28 miles is the standard mode up to 32 if you turn that feature on. I’ll go ahead back to power assist, and it kicked in right there really nicely; the rest of the review will be conducted on electric only, but you could see pedaling is pretty nice, and if I’m contributing with pedaling right now, it says I’m doing 12 to 32 miles per hour.

 

How will you feel when you ride C3strom Astro Pro?

Let’s talk about the bike first. It has a 750-watt powertrain but could go up to well over a thousand based on the technology that this bike has. I find that despite it having a non-adjustable saddle—you can’t adjust the saddle at all—it is very comfortable to pedal, at least for a short period of time. We’ll see how well it performs as we conduct some speed tests and some brake tests. It has a twist-dial gear system and controls here on the side where you can, for example, increase the power while using pedal system one and then navigate through the small menu mode. It also has hydraulic brakes, a striking headlamp that is similar to a motorcycle’s, as well as turning signals that you can control here on the side. It also has a hydraulic fork that gives you a really satisfying sustenance. So I’m telling you this because it feels really good in combination with the incredibly eye-catching but also incredibly comfortable 20 inches, four inches, little over four-inch, or four-and-a-quarter-inch broad tires.

Now the handlebar rides a little low, but you’ll notice that I’m not leaning forward and I’m not really having to go like this; I can actually lean normally, and it’s very comfortable. The pedals—you can see by my stride right now that I have pedal assist on—feel very natural. The gear system also feels very natural. And we already mentioned that it has turning signals.

Apart from the overall appearance, it does have one of the best mudguard systems I’ve seen in a bike in a very long time. If you look at the front tire and we’re going to turn here, you’ll notice where my foot is right here: the actual mud guards or the fenders go down pretty far low both in front and in the back they go extremely low which means it’s going to give you great protection so you won’t lift up a finger.  

 

The speed in different modes

Now what we’re going to do is I have pedal assist one on and I know that when I hit pedal assist one, I’m able to hit up to 12 miles an hour. You can see how nice that was by going to Pedal System Mode 2. Now it is 20 miles per hour, which is lipidosis three, and it is 22 miles per hour, which is going way above it. I don’t think I can pedal quickly enough for this, but you saw how nice that was. Let’s go ahead and go pedal assist four. We can go well above 25 miles per hour very.

Our top speed with the throttle is 18 miles per hour, however, as soon as I press the pedal, it accelerates slightly to 23 or 24 miles per hour. It only really requires changing the gear over here to eight on the side because 25.3 is the fastest I can manage, so I went ahead and put the bike in that gear. In order to test how well the off-road model or mode would perform in the present, I would also have enabled it. Wow, that’s pedaling at 28 miles per hour; my God, that’s 29 or 30 miles per hour. Wow, that’s amazing. Let’s do a speed test. Full Throttle is activated and we’re going to see how fast we can go. Right now we’re moving at a speed of 26 mph, 27 mph, 28 mph, and 29.1 mph. We just hit 30 and the speedometer telling me 28.29. So 30.5 is what this is reading, absolutely amazing.

My initial impression of C3strom pro astro

What are my initial impressions of this one? I love it, I like the ride, I love the look, it’s well made, it is super quiet right super quiet, and the pedaling is just really nice. Could it benefit from suspension? Probably. Anything could benefit from suspension whenever you have suspension in the back. However, I wouldn’t necessarily classify that as a major drawback. The gear system, whether it’s on the right or left side in this case, I’m digging it on that side. On this side is actually my throttle having them both separated. I’m okay with it. I’ve ridden other bikes that are like this too and I’ve gotten used to it. The display as you can see right there is enormous, and very visible even in this kind of daylight. I can see this as a daily commuter for school, for work which is depending on your distance. You can travel anywhere from 30 miles to more than 70 miles with this guy, depending on whether you’re pedaling or not. It’s pretty amazing, and you also have pointer-free tires, so those puncture-free tires will get you where you need to go.

C3strom Astro Pro – Motorcycle with Pedals | The Best E-bike of 2022

We got a new e-bike, and this e-bike is not your typical e-bike because it’s a cross between an e-bike and an e-motorcycle, and this is the C3strom Astro Pro. Let’s take a look.

As you can see, this is not your typical e-bike. At first glance, it appears to be a motorcycle or an electric motorcycle, but it is actually a class 3 ebike. It just so happens that they made the frame look really nice and they put some motorcycle-looking components over here, so let’s take a quick look at the frame.

 

The details of the C3strom Astro Pro

They did some little details here that actually look really cool. So C3 actually stands for class 3 electric bike. You got those little things right here. It looks really cool. I like that the frame they kind of feathered the welds over here and over here and over here making it look really nice. Despite being a hard tail, the seat is extremely comfortable and absorbs bumps. I think the fenders actually kind of custom made this because you’ll never see any fenders like this on the market. This is the first fender that I’ve seen that is being mounted like this. So I never own a motorcycle. And I really like it because it’s plastic so when you bump it it’s not going to fold it’s not going to bend.

We have a 750 watt bafang motor right here but don’t be fooled by that 750 watt because this thing can actually peak out up to 1400 watts so there’s actually two riding modes over here. Right now it’s on class 3 mode. It can go up to 28 miles an hour and it will peak out to 1200 watts. But if you unlock it to off-road mode, you can actually peak out up to 2000 watts, which is really cool. The motor can be a little loud, but that’s to be expected because you’re pushing that 750 watt motor up to 32 miles per hour. Let’s take a look at the front end, and as you can see, that’s a motorcycle headlight right there that illuminates if the bike is on this beam right here, so it’s really cool. Turn signal indicators on each side and the tires are actually 20 by 4.25, so it’s fatter than your normal 26×4 or 24×4. So it’s a little fatter, which means you have more grip when cornering, and everything matters. In fact, cornering on this e-bike is actually really good. Every time I ride it, I feel like I’m riding a moped or a motorcycle. As you can see, this e-bike is a hardtail, which means we have suspension on the front and nothing on the back. This doesn’t mean you can’t ride it off-road; you can, but you have to be careful because it can be a little rowdy.

 

The difference between C3strom Astro and Astro Pro

There is actually two version of this e-bike. This one is the C3strom Astro Pro and there’s another one which is called C3strom Astro. So it’s the non-pro version. The only difference there is this one has a bigger battery. And the non-pro version has a smaller battery, but the range is still pretty amazing.

I actually wish they put a little bit of suspension right there so I can do some off-road stuff. But you know maybe in the future because this is a full suspension it would be nicer because I can just replace the tires with off-road tires then there we go riding off-road. I think they want you to use this on the streets. It looks like a street bike right on the streets The rear 180 millimeter quad piston calipers are the same, and the brake lever looks like a motorcycle brake lever because they got the ball end right here.

 

The components of C3strom

It’s C3 branded on each side and what I really like about the brakes is they even have an oil level indicator is that what it is or this is just for statics again. So since we’re right here at the front of the bike, let’s check out the cockpit. Let’s turn on the bike. As you can see, I haven’t even taken this item off since I don’t want to get scratched. This is pretty interesting at the same time, and I think it’s smart because they put this rebel shifter right here, which means you have to do this when you’re shifting. I really like that they put this here because I don’t have to do this when I’m shifting. This looks like a motorcycle display right here, with five level assists, so right now I’m on level assist one, meaning zero one two three four five. It’s very simple to use the plus and minus buttons for the pedal assist, and right here we have a turn signal indicator. However, there isn’t an audible cue that you’re actually making a turn because right now I’m trying to turn to the left but you can’t see it here, and occasionally I forget that I’m riding around and I’m still trying to turn to the left.

Look at that. That is just so nice. turn to the left and look at that. I mean it’s just that thing looks awesome matter of fact let’s go to the back and you’ll see right here that looks like it looks very futuristic. This is the bike from the future. Let’s go back to the cockpit and right over here you have the low and the high beam. We have a horn and to turn on the headlight you just press the power button and let’s check out the headlight real quick. It’s not pretty bright because it’s super bright right now.

There’s a super cool feature on this bike that I almost forgot to mention: the cadence sensor on this crank set is super sensitive, unlike other e-bikes that require you to wait one to two seconds before the motor kicks in. For example, if I’m on pedal assist three, as soon as the crank rotates forward, the motor will instantly work, whereas other e-bikes require you to wait one to two seconds.

The seats are extremely comfortable; in fact, they are among my favorites. The motor is pretty powerful, the wheels are nice, you can corner really well, and look at that, I’m still amazed with this e-bike. I’ve been using this for two weeks now maybe the screen is simple but amazing, the cockpit is not overly crowded, so for the price it is really nice.

 

The price of C3strom

Let’s pause here for a moment and talk about the price of this e-bike because I know everyone is wondering how much it is because it looks pretty expensive and you’re probably expecting a lot of money for it, but right now the Astro Pro is only $1999  and the non-pro version is only $1799. The difference is that the pro version has a bigger battery, the non-pro version has a smaller battery, but it’s the same thing. So I can confidently say that the Astro Pro is the e-bike of 2022. Price performance is up there, and I think they’re pushing it. I don’t know how they did it for that price, but I think it’s a really good deal, so super 73. You guys better watch out because I have a big dog over here who might take over. 

 

The app of C3strom

So I’m here in the trails now because you know I want to show you guys that this e-bike can actually ride off-road despite the fact that it looks like a street bike and I almost forgot to tell you guys that this e-bike actually comes with an app. I don’t know if you guys can see that because of the glare, but if not I will just put like a screen recording here so you can change a lot of things here. A lot of information is currently visible and certain items can be changed. I can actually change the riding mode over here, and right now I’m in class 3 mode, which goes up to 28 miles per hour, but once I hit the off-road mode, there’s a warning here that says this e-bike will hit a maximum speed of 52 kilometers per hour or 32 miles per hour. Please note that off-road mode must only be used when the bike is connected via Bluetooth. Let’s stay on Class 3. The speedometer is showing that it’s actually going faster maybe because I’m using a 24 inch wheel but, actually, I used my GPS app and it’s showing 28 miles per hour max instead of 30 or 32. I’m going to put up my phone later with my GPS app so you guys can see. Here we go riding on the trails. I’m going to take it slow because this trail is currently very slick due to the fact that, as you may know, it’s summer, the leaves are dried, and the sand is particularly slick.

Brakes are awesome. When it gets super sandy, tires are just not able to keep up because you know I’m using road tires right now. So maybe if I put some off-road tires on this bike, that might be better. I don’t have to stop whenever I see cyclists like that because I got a motor on my bike. So off-road is fine, but when you hit a bigger bump, it can get a little rowdy, but it can handle it.

 

How fast the C3strom can be?

I’ve got my GPS app right here with me, so let’s see how fast we can go. Just full throttle at 28 miles per hour, but the screen says 34. I have a tailwind, which is probably why it’s going faster than 28 miles per hour all right. So let’s do pedal assist speed. On pedal assist one I get 11 miles per hour. Pedal assist two-20 miles per hour.  Pedal assist three-23 miles per hour. Pedal assist four-24 miles per hour. Pedal assist five-24 miles per hour.

I’m pretty sure you can hear me screaming in this video because the motor is actually pretty loud, possibly because it’s being pushed to 1200 watts peak, but does it bother me? Not really. Right now the wind is actually louder than the motor. But let me tell you the ride quality of this e-bike is awesome because I can turn sharp on this bike without problems. The bike control is decent, and it was definitely the nicest e-bike experience I’ve ever had.

To get your own C3strom!

It’s quite comfortable. The 750 watt motor is actually quite powerful. Imagine going up to 32 miles per hour in off-road mode and 28 miles per hour in class 3 mode. I really like the way this bike looks, it looks like a motorcycle- the headlight, the turn signal indicator, the tires, the frame design. I’ll be honest with you guys, I really like it. It performs really well, it looks really nice, the battery is long lasting. The Astro Pro is just a really nice bike.

***Area 13 Ebikes LIVE Review: Astro Ebike ***

You’re probably wondering why you’re seeing a blank screen for a live review, but that’s because what you just saw me playing is the C3strom Astro.

 

The overview of C3strom

We are looking at the 750-watt rear hub motor and I’ll get some close-ups on this as well. You’re looking at a 52-volt battery so a high-power battery is 15 amp hours. Now they have two versions of this bike, the Astro and the Astro pro, with the Astro Pro having a larger battery. Today is a beautiful day with temperatures between 76 and 75 degrees and a light breeze, just enough to keep you cool, so let’s get started. It’s a pretty cool bike, and I like it a lot. There are two modes: a class 3 e-bike mode and an off-road mode. For the off-road mode, there’s an app that you can download on your Android or iPhone. You can access a setting for c3 mode or off-road mode by logging into the app. I have already activated the off-road mode. it’s got the Samsung removable 20 amp hour battery 52 volts if you look at it. It looks very very similar to the blackbird battery that some of you blackbird owners have and let me bring it up to you guys that way you can get a real idea of the picture of this bike and its battery.

It has the master switch right here, the plug for your charger right there, and the key to release the battery on the other side, allowing you to safely remove the battery, store it, and travel with it. You’re looking at uh, specifications-wise for the tires, you’re looking at 20-inch-by-4.25-inch tires. These are more road tires, but there’s not much aggression, so this is something I would definitely use for cruising around town, along with other great features. You’ve got the half twist throttle right here on the right and you even have a horn you’ve got a high and low and blinkers and I’ll show those features as well on that. On the other side, you have your power display and your Revo shifter on the side which is a twist shift that is really unique, never really get a left-handed twist shift. It does have a rear rack that is compatible with 33 pounds of capacity so if you ever still needed to haul stuff you can still do it up to 33 pounds um they even have uh extra uh spare battery and um saddlebag adaptions that you can get with this as well. This bike itself is fairly heavy you’re looking at 92 pounds. So it’s definitely got weight to it, definitely a nice cruiser bike. It definitely got that moped-to feel to me when I grew up. According to the manufacturer, the Astro model has a range of 50 miles and the pro model has a range of 78 miles due to its larger battery, which is a 20 amp hour battery as opposed to a 15 amp hour battery. In class 3 electric bicycle mode, you’re looking at about 28 miles per hour; in the off-road mode, they say you get about 32 miles per hour. However, I have taken it on flat ground before, and I was able to get it to about 35 miles per hour.

I wore a helmet because the bike was so fast and cruising so well, and also because it has plastic fenders on the front and back. Seven-speed derailleur integrated frame integrated controller on the inside which peaks out about a 35 amp peak controller. For a bike like this with the long seat, it feels very comfortable I’ve been on a lot of similar bikes that we’ve test road on this and it seemed very hard that was actually a very comfortable ride.

Let’s see what else we’ve got: a 3.5-inch display with USB, a four-amp charger, and approximately four to five hours of charging time. This is a good off-road,  moped-type bike, and the 750-watt rear hub provides roughly 80-newton meters.

 

Question 1: Can you show a close-up of the gear shifter?

This is the first time I’ve seen a left-handed gear shifter, and it’s quite unusual. I will demonstrate the left-hand gear shifter because you will notice something that also confused me, so let’s get a close-up of that. As you can see, this gear shifter is a twist throttle, but the numbers are upside down, so technically this gear shifter would be made for a right hand because it would be flipped to where it would be on the other side, but obviously, we have a lot going on on the other side, especially with the half twist throttle and you’ve got all your lights, blinkers, horn, etc. on that. So that was a very interesting and fun thing to see on that bike.

 

Question 2:would it be easy to add an extra battery?

Yes, according to the manufacturer, this back rack has the adaptability, as stated previously, to accommodate not only a saddlebag option but also a secondary rear battery option. I did not receive any specific weight limit numbers, but we will include their link and request more information from them regarding their weight limit. I didn’t get any of that unfortunately. I said the back rack will hold about 33 pounds roughly. I’m 200 pounds so I would say roughly it could probably handle maybe about 250 to 275 pounds at the most. It is the 6061 alloy frame or aluminum frame, so keep in mind that’s just a rough estimate.

 

Question 3: is there an ignition key on the bike?

No. You don’t need to turn a key to turn it on. There is a master switch on the battery very similar to our blackberry batteries. The key would be more of an aspect of this site right here to unlock it too, to remove the battery if you wanted to store it in a room temperature feel as well as travel. So it’s not getting tossed and rattled on the bike and everything else locks in just like almost every other bike.

 

Question 4: what is the maximum speed of the electric bicycle? 

As I mentioned previously, there are two different settings. You’re looking at the c3 setting or the c3 mode, which is 28 miles per hour standard stock without doing anything in the app unlocking anything, and then you must download the app in order to record your trails. If you wanted to record your speeds, distance, etc., it also provides an off-road option. The off-road option allows you to increase the top speed from 28 miles per hour to roughly 32 miles per hour. I almost reached 35 miles per hour on flat ground, so it was a really nice and fast range. Top speed mass I’m getting a new segway scooter soon, but this one looks cool, and it’s actually very cool; I like it. It’s a very pleasant ride It has many features that I did not expect it to have. It weighs 92 pounds (42 kilograms). It has a range of approximately 50 miles, but the pro model offers 78 miles of range. So, the standard Astro has a range of 50 miles, while the pro model has a range of 48 or 78 miles and a top speed of approximately 32 mph. The braking on this you have four pistons, it appears to be hydraulic braking on it. That’s a good thing. A lot of bikes that are similar to it do not to me seem to have hydraulic brakes. I think maybe with the power that this has and the speed it can go , the hydraulic brakes definitely gives it that power to come with 180 millimeter brake rotors. 

 

Question 5: how many teeth the chain ring has?

The chain ring has 56 teeth. I’ll also discuss some of the features that it has, such as the lights. Let me turn the bike around because it has the blinkers, the active brake light, and the active tail light, and we’ll get some close-ups of those as well. And i’ll get some nice close-ups of what that tail light entails; hopefully, the sun will illuminate it and you’ll be able to see how it looks; so you’ve got braking power right there; uh, if you want to do right turn signals, you’ve got your right signal right there; and you’ve obviously got your left signal right there; your horn sounds very electronic; and let’s see if I can get a close-up of this digital display as well. The seat feels like it has memory foam because it’s a lot more comfortable than a lot of other seats I’ve ridden on. The standover height is approximately 30 to 31 inches.

 

Question 6: introduce the wattage.

It is about a 750-watt rear hub e-bike motor Bafang by the way as well. So you’re looking at probably a peak of about 1100 at the most. It scoots though like I said I got it up to 32 miles per hour with ease. I can get up to that hill with no problem cruising. 

 

Question 7: can the turn signals do four ways for like emergency?

From what I can tell, it does not have a hazard light function. It’s funny that you asked because I was wondering if it would activate all four lights simultaneously if you were pulled over and wanted to be visible to people that are maybe driving by or riding by in there so they don’t hit you unfortunately it does not appear to have that feature it’s either one left or right, so maybe you could incorporate with your helmet or flashing battery operated light if needed. So that would be my opinion you could do.

 

Question 8: are the cables long enough to add handlebars with a higher rise? 

They do go right here into the frame right off the bat straight from the top of the handlebars that would be tough. I don’t know if even an adjustable stem will work on this uh definitely worth experimenting and trying. You have a little bit, but these are already fairly tight and wrapped and everything else. So I’m not sure if you’re going to have much play with it to bring it up a little higher. I know that’s a disadvantage because you don’t have an adjustable seat so do you think we could raise up the handlebars a little bit? We’d have to experiment with that.

 

Question 9: does it have a pedal assist?

It still has a pedal assist. It still has pedal assist and throttle. My knees feel like they’re hitting my chin as I pedal. I do feel the pedal assist engage once more, but I’m so awkward when I do it that it feels like I’m hitting my wrist every time I pedal. I mean my knee my legs are on my down truck are still almost at a 90 degree angle so to me for pedaling on me, I would not use this as a pedal bike for me. My upstroke right there is not very comfortable. However, I am neither the tallest nor the shortest, so someone of a different size may be able to handle it a little bit better.

 

Question 10: what is the range of it?

I know some people are getting different ranges. Some people get better, while others get worse. To answer your question about the range, it’s extremely difficult to provide a justification for what an accurate range is. Given all the variables involved, including terrain, the rider, how much throttle is being used, how much pedaling is being used, what pedal assist you’re on, as well as the bike itself and the size of the battery, etc., all have an effect on the range, which is why it’s so difficult to provide an accurate estimate because everyone is different, every train is different and every bike is different. So there is never a rough right accurate estimate on that.

 

Qusetion11:does it have a 16-by-16-by-16-inch food delivery bag? 

It doesn’t appear to have any attachments or mounts for a front basket, and with the headlight and turn signals in the way. I’m not sure if a front basket would be very useful.

So that is the C3strom Astro. They have two model links. Please go to their website and pick yours up.

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.

C3STORM ASTRO PRO E-Bike Review – An Electric Bike with Motorcycle Design

Today I’ll be reviewing a brand-new electric bicycle. The C3STROM ASTRO is a distinctive motorcycle, which has a design reminiscent of a motorcycle with a long seat and a large flat surface. It has tires and a powerful motor that provide a decent amount of speed and range. Now this e-bike is 42 kgs. It’s powered by a 750 watt rear motor and can achieve top speeds up to 45 kilometers per hour in standard mode and in off-road mode you can unlock that top speed to 52 kilometers per hour and an incredible 50 mile range.

 

How to resemble your C3STROM

Now that the ASTRO comes well-packaged in a large box, it is quite a heavy bike, so you may need assistance carrying it. Some assistance with unpacking and assembling the bike This bike comes with an accessory box containing the user manual, a power supply, and a power cable. The voltage information is shown in the image below.A number of tools and a small bag of screws are included, as well as the left and right pedals.The main battery was shipped in a separate box and is a Samsung 21700 cell with a 1040 watt hour capacity that promises a 70 mile range and comes with a pair of keys to lock it in place.

The included instructions are easy to follow with illustrations that make assembly simple. Attach the handlebar and close the screws, making sure the handlebar is the correct way around and at a comfortable angle. Next, we’ll attach the front wheel, so flip the bike over for better access. After sliding the wheel axle through the wheel and securing the wheel in place, making sure the brake disc is seated correctly, tighten both sides, and you’re good to go. Attach the front mudguard, which is secured in place with a small nut and screw, and be sure to also secure the rear mudguard. The pedals are actually marked left and right, so you simply screw them on and tighten them with a wrench. So the ASTRO is fully assembled, we just need to connect the battery, which you pass through under the frame and it slides on to secure, and then you lock the battery in place using the key. now the battery is removable to make charging more convenient, and whilst charging it will show you its progress, and it can be charged via USB. This bike is classified as a class 3 electric bike with pedals, but it shares the design of a class one bike. You’ve got large led lights on the front and check out those left and right turning indicators. Just slightly under the seat, you’ll find your rear brake light, which activates every time you press the brake. Also, when you’re indicating left or right, the rear light also animates your intention, which I think is super cool.

 

The C3STROM app

Now quick look at the smartphone app. The smartphone app is called the C3STROM app, and it is compatible with both android and iOS. The bike connects to the app via bluetooth, and once connected, it provides battery information and total distance traveled so far, as well as riding history and the ability to adjust pedal assist speeds. You can activate cruise control when your riding speed is above 10 kilometers per hour by holding down the plus button for a few seconds. You can also change your units from kilometers to miles for your convenience. Lastly, if you select pedal electric, which is the default mode, the throttle will not work and you will have to use the pedals to propel yourself. Depending on the mode of pedal assist, acceleration is quite swift.

 

The driving experience

Now let’s talk about the drive. This bike is undoubtedly smooth and quick, and the added weight of the bike makes it well-balanced. You’re in complete control .Depending on the mode of pedal assist, acceleration is quite swift. I started off in level one to get used to it and gradually increased each level, and you can feel the difference in acceleration each time you increase that level. By level five, it’s practically effortless to pedal half a pedal and the bike goes quite far, so it’s a good idea to get used to it before jumping straight to level five. You can also manually adjust the Shimano gears to make things easier or more difficult. As you can see, when in pedal assist mode, turning the throttle has no effect on the electric motor. When you stop pedaling, the electric side immediately shuts off, so that’s what you can expect from the pedal assist side.

I’ve just briefly switched to the off-road mode using my phone, and now the pedal assist levels do nothing, so it’s no longer five-speed pedal assist but one-speed pedal assist, and that is the top speed, so if you start pedaling, the bike takes off, and if you turn the throttle, the bike slows down. Properly confuses the cops when they see you, and if they ever stop you, they can’t do anything because it’s a legal class 3 e-bike that falls within the legal speed limits without a working throttle. However, when you flip a switch on your phone, the bike reveals its true colors and gives you the motorbike experience with working throttle acceleration and speed.

 

To get your own C3STROM!

This is without a doubt the most incredible e-bike I’ve tested this year in terms of power and performance, even in standard mode. Off-road mode takes it to a whole new level, transforming it from an e-bike to a motorcycle. If you do not have a driver’s license, you must use the standard pedal assist mode to remain in compliance with UK and EU law.

This is a standard class 3 electric bicycle. If your need for speed is too great and you need off-road mode constantly, you will also need a driver’s license, insurance, and this bike will need to be tested and licensed. All of this will be very expensive, so I recommend just riding pedal assist and if you want to go off-road, do it on private land. It’s safer and cheaper in the long run. However, if you are being chased by zombies at night, you can quickly access real-time information on your phone. If zombies are chasing you, switch to off-road mode and flee as quickly as possible. I love the design and the overall build quality and smoothness of the drive. I love how this bike feels on the road. I love the control. The braking system is very good. I’ve never ridden a harley before, but when I’m on this bike, I feel like I’m on a harley. There are front shock absorbers that can be activated or deactivated, as well as extras such as cruise control, left and right turning signals for the front and back, and a large, attractive led light on the front of this impressive e-bike. If I made a chart for e-bikes, this one would undoubtedly be at the top, so it’s a solid e-bike experience overall. The Shimano gears are upside down and I wish the turn indicators made a noise so if I accidentally left them on I would know, but other than that, this is a solid ebike C3STROM ASTRO. Links are in the description box below. If you have any questions, please leave them in the comments. In conclusion, I hope you enjoyed the video, thank you for watching, and I’ll see you in the next one, peace.

Q&A with one of our first backers

We are honored that we had so many supporters during the Indiegogo campaign! Thank you all very much for your trust in us, we hope to get even more suggestions on how to improve our products and services from all of you in the future so we can serve our community of riders even better. 

Today, we are fortunate to get some great feedback from one of our first backers Mr. Cole Blank who is an e-bike enthusiast who found C3Strom when he was looking for a fun and easy way to commute.

After researching many e-bikes on the market he finally chose the C3STROM because after having ridden a foldable bike before seeing the Astro he thought that not only was this a powerful e-bike with a great motor but that it looked awesome – basically, you get a cool motorbike without having to have a license to ride an actual one.

Besides commuting, he enjoys taking joyrides along the Mississippi river with his Astro in his free time. As a bonafide cycling enthusiast, he has also participated in many group rides and races in which he has met many fellow riders who love the looks of his bike.  

In his cyclist group, there are many people who have never ridden an e-bike before. Cole says he enjoys interacting with his fellow enthusiasts who have had many questions to ask him about the Astro and e-bikes in general. More often than not their conversations end with people walking away saying, “I’m getting one too”.

As a relatively experienced rider of Astro, he shared his experiences and ideas on improving the bike and our services with us. Here are some quotes and questions from our interview with him.

Q: What do you think C3STROM and ASTRO need to improve?

A: Timing of deliveries. Most of the customers who backed the first model and live in the United States received the bike in the Fall and riding conditions are poor during this time of year.”

C3Strom: Although we’ve been in the industry for a long time, we did ship later than expected during this Indiegogo campaign. We are improving this so that all of our supporters can receive their Astros as quickly as possible, and we welcome you to post more photos and stories of your rides once spring arrives!

Q: What specs that you want ASTRO to have in the future?

A: “Greater rated power and peak power. Larger battery capacity to reach advertised ranges. Lighter frame to increase the range as well.”

C3Strom: Astro is our first product in this category and style. We designed it after considering many aspects, and in some parts, it needs to be improved. However, C3STROM is continuously developing its products and we will collect feedback and opinions from our supporters to introduce accessories and different configurations of e-bikes that meet your needs and wishes. For example, when the V2 is coming; we will add rear suspension to the bike which was one feature on top of the wishlist for many. We will be providing our riders with more products while maintaining high quality.

Q: In the end, we asked a very critical question: How do you keep your Astro safe from bike thieves as it attracts quite a lot of attention where ever it goes?

A: “I use an alarm on all of my bikes along with a heavy-duty chain and GPS tracker.”

C3Strom: This is a very good way to prevent theft! If you are still very concerned about theft, you can also use our C3STROM mobile App to set a password for your ASTRO and use the equipped key to remove the battery at the end of the ride.

Thank you for the interview, Cole!

If you have any more questions or queries, please feel free to send us a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible. We pride ourselves on our relationship with our customers and backers!

C3Strom E-Moped Review. Is this the best Value Electric Motorbike out there

Guys, we have an e-bike review that has already been written, and I couldn’t be happier. If you’re anything like me, you’ll love the way this looks and the style of this bicycle. I’m a biker at heart, and I also enjoy cycling, so I’m a fan of e-bikes, bicycles, and motorcycles. If you are a person like me, you will adore the way this appears.

 

The overview of the bike

It’s a hybrid of a motorcycle and an e-bike or a bicycle, and I must say that I’m quite fond of its appearance. This object is solid and weighs approximately 80 pounds, which is quite heavy, but I am able to lift it because today is leg day. I will assign it a total score of 50 based on its value, performance, ride quality, design, and overall quality, using a scale of one to ten. If you’re dealing with someone who wants to buy a bike that is exactly what they want, like this one, you can’t buy a frame like this cheaply or easily and turn it into a bike like this, so this is a very viable option for many people, and this e-moped style is a very popular segment. Super 73 has dominated this market for a very long time, but their products are quite expensive. I do not wish to disclose prices at this time, but I am aware that they exceed $3,000. It depends on your budget and your activities. People believe you are a professional e-bike builder because you’re wearing a t-shirt of Michael Jordan dunking an ice cream cone.

Let’s start at the front of the bike and work our way to the back, where you can see that the tires are quite substantial. These are supposed to be puncture proof and I believe these are really thick tires I think they’re just 20 inches probably but these are motorcycle tires. I don’t know how difficult it would be to source these, but hopefully not very difficult, but these are essentially little tiny motorcycle wheels. It’s got a front fender here. It’s got turn signals up front here, a cool little headlight here. I believe these might be the 180s because they appear to have dual-piston hydraulic brakes, which is really nice. Typically, 180s are stamped on the rotors, but these don’t appear to have any markings. It has a front fork with compression, so you can adjust how hard or soft you want it to feel, and the cockpit is quite interesting.

It has turn signals, a horn, a headlight, and a gear shifter, similar to a motorcycle. It’s a little backward, but it doesn’t have much of an impact. The initial observation was that the grip shifters were mounted inverted. If I had my way, I would install a trigger shifter or find a way to install a seven-speed transmission. It contains Shimano parts. The Shimano Altus rear derailleur is equipped with a grip shift. It has nice grips like they feel premium they’re locking grips so you don’t have to take the air hose to get them off. they just three millimeters and take them off it’s got a grip a half twist grip throttle right here it’s very responsive and then it’s got a really nice display here I really do like this display it shows a lot of information. Here is the battery; this one came with a 52-volt 20-amp-hour battery; I think they did a great job designing this into the frame; it mounts backward than it normally would; however, this is a 1,000-watt-hour battery, so the range will be good depending on how you ride it; with e-bikes or cars, you either go fast or far.

Depending on how you ride a vehicle with a power source, the range can range from 30 to 60 miles. It has a massive single chainring up front, which is something like a 52 or 54 tooth, and a 7-speed cassette in the rear, which I believe is an 11 by 34. At 80 pounds of human power, you won’t be pedaling this bicycle all that much. It has hydraulic disc brakes in the rear and this one comes with the rear rack it’s a very small rack but it’s better than nothing and it’s well made it also has the full coverage fender and the rear on the rear does have a brake light integrated into the rear here it sort of just dovetails off the seat and it has turn signals very nice I really like this it’s very impressive. It has a rear-mounted kickstand here, and I believe the controller is mounted in this area as well.

Let’s go and do a test now. So you can see the hill climb it almost made it up with just throttle from the very worst spot which I’ve never tested a hub motor that can do I just had to move it back about 10 feet and it got up there and like this motor is actually pretty powerful. I don’t know if it’s because of the power, you know 2000 watts. That’s a lot of power going to this thing or if it’s the way that it’s wound. This feels solid, powerful, and good, and as you well know, I have a strong preference for mid-drives. I love my mid-drives, but I don’t hate this one, and that’s a big deal with a 52-volt battery because typically you have to find 72-volt systems on hub motors before they begin to perform well, but this 52-volt system performs exceptionally well. Even though the display says 28, I’m sure you could unlock this if you tried. The display on this bike is interactive, and it appears to be Bluetooth-enabled, so it appears that a Bluetooth app will be available for this bike.

 

The rating system-Value

At a starting price of $1,700, this bicycle could be very exciting. And once it’s unlocked, it’ll probably do around 34 or 35 mph with this much power, and if you fiddle with the settings, it’ll probably go even faster. As of the recording of this video, this bike had not yet been released; however, it will be released soon, so please check back. Check out the links below if you want to pre-order or buy this bike before I have all of the information on it.

Let’s move on to the rating system. Let’s go number one with value. For $1700 or even $1800 or whatever you’re buying this for, or whatever you’re paying for this, I believe you’re receiving an incredible value. It is absolutely a 10 in terms of value. There is nothing that I would actually criticize. They carry high-quality items. They gave considerable consideration to this. The frame and battery capacity are incredible. I wish it had a mid-drive, but it’s fine as is. In fact, this might be a better setup because it’s still powerful and will be great for the majority of people. Value, absolutely 10.

 

The rating system-Performance

Performance. This item served as a hub motor normally. On paper, I would probably give this a score of five or six. However, based on actual riding experience, I will give this an eight for performance. I wish it came with a greater degree of access. So I’m sitting here editing this video and I just wanted to break the fourth wall really quick and let you know that after spending a little bit more time there is an app and by a little bit of time- I meant five seconds, I found out there is an app. Downloaded it and in that app, you’re able to unlock the controller. You you’re able to set it at different classes whether you want to be a class 3, off-road, etc. It also has more detailed information about your bike and ride, as well as battery health and everything else in the app, so the app is actually quite helpful, and you can unlock it. I was able to unlock it and reach speeds over 30 miles per hour, low 30s probably 32-33 miles per hour. However, unlocking the app did not affect the low-end torque curve, as it only affects top speed. I would have given it a 10 if it had reached that level. So let’s give it a 9 for performance design; this bicycle is fantastic.

 

The rating system-Design

Design. This is a pre-production model, and I was unable to connect to the Bluetooth; however, if I were able to connect to the Bluetooth and unlock all the features, I would certainly give it a 10. This deserves a score of 10 because I adore every aspect of it, including its appearance and texture.

 

The rating system-Ride quality

Let’s talk about ride quality; this is where things get a little tricky because it has these fat motorcycle tires, which cause it to behave a little erratically. However, it rides extremely smoothly, even over bumps and railroad tracks, because this is a large, padded seat, it has a hard tailback, and there is no suspension here, but the front suspension absorbs a lot of road noise, and these large tires absorb the rest. So for that, I’ll give it a nine. Obviously, it loses some because of handling but honestly, it’s like not a huge deal and when you’re buying for this you’re probably not trying to buy like for a track bike. So I would say give it a nine for that.

 

The rating system-Bike quality

The bike quality. I think they did an excellent job. Shimano Altus is not the highest

end but it’s too mid-level can’t knock it. It has hydraulic brakes without a brand name; they are neither Tektro nor Shimano, but they still feel great. Everything about this bike feels very sturdy, which I really appreciate. It’s a solid bike. They did a lot of internal wiring routing for things like the rear brake cable. For $1,700, this is more of a motorcycle. I believe it’s a motorcycle because it has a top speed of approximately 33 miles per hour, but it could be modified to go much faster, and you might even be able to get a license plate and register it. This is where I have my own thoughts “Can this vehicle be registered? Turn signals, lights, a speedometer, and a horn are included.” Please register the vehicle if it has a VIN number. That’s who it’s for if you have an inner hooligan and you like just cruising and having fun, being comfortable, and in my opinion having a stylish bike, this bike is for you. Obviously, if you’re a cyclist and you want to go get exercise on this, this is not the bike for you. You’re not going to get exercise. Your q factor is all messed up from sitting on it like this. This is a wide seat although it’s comfortable.

I’m so glad I was able to test-ride it and get my hands on it because this is a really cool bike. I do recommend this bike if you’re in the market for a moped-style emoto. I’m not sure what this segment is called, but this is a great value bike and it’s just fun to ride.

C3Strom Astro Pro – Best Electric Bike of 2022 | Vintage Motorcycle Meets Bicycle

Hello everyone, welcome back to Jimmy is Promo. We’ll be looking at the brand’s new C3STROM ASTRO and ASTRO PRO today. These are class 3 electric bikes, and the campaign goes live on May 25th, or right now, depending on when you watch this video.

 

 

The overview of the C3STROM

The C3STROM ASTRO and ASTRO PRO are available in two colors: black and gray. They can reach a top speed of 28 mph in c3 mode and 32 mph in off-road mode. The motor has a 750-watt rating. Depending on whether you get the ASTRO or ASTRO PRO, you can have a maximum range of 58 miles or 78 miles. The only difference between the two is the battery size. Now, the C3STROM ASTRO PRO is the best in class, especially when it comes to battery capacity, as it has the largest battery capacity available for an e-bike under $4,000. It has a 1040-watt hour battery as well as a 750-watt motor.

 

The saddle is extra long and super comfortable, filled with silicone to reduce vibration, and for the lighting system, you have that massive headlamp in the front that is a 130 lux headlight with high and low beams, as well as the front left and right turn signals, and then the led tail light with integrated turn signals and brake light once the brake is compressed. Finally, the tires are 20-inch by 4.25-inch anti-puncture tires that eat up the road and grass on almost any terrain.

 

Going through the power assist modes, you get five four three two one zero. Zero simply means that you are pedaling the bike without any assistance from the motor. And basically, the higher the number, the more assistance you have to help you reach those top speeds.

 

On the removable battery, you now have an on/off power switch as well as a charging port. You also have left and right turn signals, as well as high and low beam switches. So that was the sound of the bike with the pedal assist; some people are curious about what it sounds like with the motor running while pedaling. So, with my gears set to four and my pedal assists set to five, I reached a top speed of 31 on this small slant of a hill. Now I weigh approximately 193 pounds. I believe I could go a little faster now if you just use the throttle, you’ll go around 19 to 20 miles per hour, and 27 to 32 miles per hour if you use the pedal assist on either five or off-road mode.

 

The C3STROM application and how to set it

Let’s take a look at the C3STROM application, which is free to download from Google Play and Apple App Stores and is very easy to pair with your bike. All you have to do is turn on your bike, hit the little ‘M’ on the left side of the handlebar that is a mode for Bluetooth, and then once you open up this application, hit on add device and you’ll be done in about 10 seconds with your battery percentage, total distance ridden, and a bunch of different settings and battery info that you can look at and change. Now, you can see that we are disconnected because my bike just turned off a few seconds ago, but the last percentage we were at was 100% and the total distance ridden was 17.6 miles, then down here is a bunch of quick actions and there are a few things that you can really only do on this application that you can’t do on the bike itself, so one of these right here is one that is on the bike. You don’t really need the application to do it, but that’s where you can change your pedal assist pedal or the level zero is basically just pedaling the bike and not assisting you in any way. Then it goes all the way up to level five, which is usually where I keep mine. This next set is my personal favorite. This is where you can switch from class 3 mode, which has a top speed of 28 miles per hour, to off-road mode, which has a top speed of 32 miles per hour or 52 kilometers per hour. Because I am currently disconnected, the bike has recently been turned off. When I turn on the bike and have this application next to it, when I switch this to off-road mode, we’ll be able to go faster. Here you can see the status of your battery, as well as the current voltage, currency, and temperature capacity. As a result, you can see everything that is going on. So, right here, I have that 20 000 milli amp hour battery that is inside my bike. You also have a cruise function, so if you’re going more than 6.3 miles per hour, hold down the throttle for two seconds and then press the plus button for two seconds, and the cruise function will activate. You will also be able to see the cruise icon, so I would definitely read that and take a look if you want to use the cruise function. I don’t think it’s necessary as long as you just pedal, and I’m only on level four of pedaling. It’ll just keep you at that constant speed, and then your light switch just turns on the light, and then it turns off, but you can see that again. I can’t do that because we’re not connected. And this way, you can change your unit settings from mile to kilometer.

 

The difference between ASTRO and ASTRO PRO

One of the most common questions is what is the difference between ASTRO and ASTRO PRO, and is it worth the price difference, and the answer is right in front of you, which is only the battery size, which will give you a different range in miles. So you have the ASTRO, which has a max range of about 58 miles and a battery capacity of 780 watt-hours, or the ASTRO PRO, which has a max range of 78 miles and a battery capacity of 1040 watt-hours, so the difference between the two is about 20 miles.

Let’s take a look at the pricing and timeline for everything that’s going on. The super early bird price for the ASTRO is $1699 if you go with first come, first served on May 25th. The pro is $1899, and as the campaign progresses, the price will rise all the way to the MRSP of $2499 for the ASTRO and $2699 for the ASTRO PRO. When you compare the super early bird price to the final result MRSP, you will save $800, which is a sizable saving in the world of e-bikes.

 

Get more information about C3STROM

Now, on the internet, here is the Indiegogo page at the moment. It is not yet live, so this page will look different than it will on May 25th, and this is the C3STROM website where you can look at their bikes, so both of them are listed here if you wanted to learn more and take a deep dive into all the specs and everything else, and so inside of this Indiegogo page right now you can sign up to get that $800 off early bird discount. So, if you want to learn more, sign up to be notified when it goes live. You can also participate in the discussion by scanning this QR code. I believe it takes you to their Facebook page, where you can stay up to date on everything they’re up to. Then there are some details and information, just a high-level overview of the bike itself, and you can sign up at the bottom. Here’s their website, which will also be linked below the video in the description. I just went inside the shop e-bikes, and both of them are shown right here. So this is the C3STROM ASTRO as well as the C3STROM ASTRO PRO, and the price is as follows. There is a noticeable difference between the two here. Because we’re looking at early bird pricing right now, if you want to learn more about either of these bikes, simply click on the options button. You can see black and gray if you look at the colors. It will take you to the Indiegogo page. You can see some photos as you scroll down, and then you can see the top speed, which is 28 miles per hour for the C3 mode and 32 miles per hour for the off-road mode. In terms of the motor, which is a 750-watt rear hub integrated wheel, the maximum range is 50 miles, depending on rider weight, terrain incline, and riding style.

 

To assemble your own C3Storm

As you scroll down, you’ll see an infographic of pretty much everything on the bike, including the seat, rack, wheels, and chain. Underneath geometry, you can see everything measured out, so if you’re curious about the inches of the wheels, the base, or the height, everything will be right there for you. Then there are the electronics going into the depths of the battery, which is the Samsung 21 700 cells a 780-watt hour. It’s a removable lithium-ion battery that talks about the charger, the controller, and the display, which is the best display of any e-bike I’ve ever owned. This one has the best display hands down, with a 3.5-inch screen that is super easy to read at night and super easy to read during the day, which is also very important. We’ll go over the hub motor, lights, pedal, assist the form of assistance, USB connectors, wiring throttle, max range, horn, and a top speed that we’ve already covered, and then you’ll be able to take a look at the ASTRO PRO. Here are your two colors—black and gray—your photographs—right here is the infographic, and this image’s specifics here and there. If you wanted to see if there are any differences, the biggest and only difference is going to be the size of the battery, which along with the battery size will give you the difference in a range that the bike is able to go so instead of that 50 to 58 miles this one the pro will get you 78 miles so here’s the unboxing and assembly of the bike and so really it’s going to be a black box with all of your pedals and your tools that you would need. The bike itself is almost completely wrapped in one package; you can see the charger and the battery sitting there; the battery was sent to me in a separate package, so if you order this bike, look for two packages, one with the large bike and the other with the battery separately. When it comes to putting the bike together, you really only have to put on the front wheel, make sure everything is sitting properly, check your nuts, bolts, and screws, and once that’s all tightened on there and it’s sitting with the front brake. You can now put on the front fender, and once the fender is finished, you can work on the pedals, and you have your left and right pedals. It appears that they are twisting in the opposite direction, but you’ll figure that out once you’ve finished with the pedals. Then you put on your handlebars, and you just want to make sure everything fits properly. You tighten everything up and look at that 3.5-inch LCD display. Once those are finished, you twist on and tighten your left and right turn signals. Now you can put on that removable battery, and once in place, you can lock it into place. That concludes my review of the C3STROM ASTRO and ASTRO PRO. Let me know what you think of this bike, and if you’re interested, click on the link below the video inside the description to get the early bird price.

C3STROM Astro PRO Best Moped Style E-bike I have tried so far! Full Review – $1.9k

C3STROM ASTRO Best moped-style e-bike I have tried so far! —Electric Vehicles Space

This electric bike is styled after a supercar. Sleek, and all of these curve connections and line transitions come together seamlessly. The fender connections are also detailed and tailored to fit this frame.

Except for both angular rims but even here tires are divisible very good grip and allow you to lean hard into the corner while maintaining control, these unique touches and parts are built for this model and not built with generic off-the-shelf parts that you’ll find in other electric bikes

The alloy brackets that connect the fender are beautifully machined and give the entire bike a high-end feel. The paint job is fantastic. The seat is extremely comfortable, and the overall quality is excellent. The frame is connected to the seat, and the battery placement is well-balanced and well-integrated.

Before we get to the handlebars and controls, there is also room for a second battery and a lot more storage. I like to emphasize the mid crank set because it is large, does not look cheap, and will allow you to avoid ghost pedaling at high speeds.

We have a Shimano auto 7-speed rear cassette, but this shifter is incredible. The frame welds are flawless. The attention to detail is superb. The ASTRO is equipped with a 750-watt Bafang rear hub motor that generates 80-newton meters of torque in the fourth gear.

In turbo mode, it can reach speeds of up to 28 miles per hour. My top speed is 33 miles per hour. Going against the wind, a solid push through any terrain will be both comfortable and powerful.

The ASTRO PRO is simply stunning. The design is very innovative and out of the ordinary, inspired by motorcycles. This model pushes the boundaries of your bike design by including some competitive features. It’s a class 3 electric bike, which means you can ride it without a driver’s license, which is pretty cool.

On this frame, it can be easily divided and transformed, with more range and power than the Super 73. For a lower price, you get a lot of features, and the ASTRO PRO went above and beyond by including the sterling signals.

This model comes in two color options and two battery configurations. The standard 780 watt hour battery has a range of up to 50 miles, while the PRO version 1040 watt hour battery has a range of 78 miles.

The torque is gradual at first, but once you pass 15 miles per hour, it accelerates quickly. With pedaling assistance on throttle alone. I reached a maximum speed of 33 miles per hour against the wind, with a maximum ritual speed of 31 miles per hour. I am 220 pounds. If you weigh less, you can travel at speeds of up to 35 miles per hour. The acceleration is gradual and smooth.

The bike is 95 pounds (43 kilograms) in weight. On my fifth maximum level of assistance, I pedaled 27.5 miles. These one-finger curved hydraulic brake levers are fantastic. They are not branded, but they function flawlessly and look and feel fantastic. The grips and controls are of high quality. Everything is easily accessible, comfortable, and simple to use. Another feature I appreciate is how well the wires are managed. Everything is properly concealed within the frame.

The display is unique to this model and provides a clear presentation of all parameters while riding. It has a huge motorcycle front light that is both powerful and bright. It has both high and low beams. The backlight is built into the seat and frame.

The front fork is adjustable and lockable, with two to three inches of travel, which is adequate for city commuting. The hydraulics are two piston brakes that add grip and stopping power. This bike exudes quality in every way. It is well-thought-out, comfortable, and futuristic and advanced. It’s well-balanced and elegantly designed. This bike is well-constructed. It appeals to me greatly. I don’t believe the images in the video accurately represent how it feels in person.

This frame is well-built, and it can easily support a larger motor and a larger battery. There’s enough space here on this platform for us to do a lot of DIY, and I believe this design is inspired by Harley-Davidson.

I rode this bike for several days and was impressed by how well it is built and how comfortable it is. Many people have asked about it, and I’ve received many compliments. This model also comes with an app that is compatible with iOS and Android devices, which adds to the features, but the best part about this bike is the price, which is significantly lower than your expectations. The C3STROM ASTRO is now available in standard and PRO models for $1700 and $1900, respectively. You get a lot of features and quality for this price. Some bikes stand out due to their impressive speeds, comfort levels, light carbon construction, or range.

This model lacks carbon fiber, which would be a nice addition, but other than that, it appears to have everything. This may be the best moped style electric bicycle I’ve tried so far in 2022. An electric bike inspired by motorcycles, with the goal of changing the way professionals approach electrifying bikes. All of the features were classified as cons. I’m not sure if this is adjustable, but the front fork becomes noisy on the rebound and there appears to be movement inside. I need to follow up with the brand on that. Overall, this is the best e-bike offer available right now.
