Review: Stromer ST1X Electric Speed Bike


Hi, I’m Karen from The New Wheel, and
I’m standing here today with the ST1 X. It’s the newest member of the Stromer
lineup. X stands for cross. It’s a cross between the value of the ST1
and the feature set brought by the ST2. Today in this video I’ll tell you a little
bit about what this bike really is, what the features are that you’ll get with
it, and who might be interested in using it. We’re especially excited about the
Stromer ST1 X because the Stromer ST2 has been such an important bike for our
store in the last couple of years. For two years running, we’ve been the
Stromer Dealer of the Year. What that really comes down to is that the
ST2 has been a huge member of our lineup. But it’s been out of the reach of some of
our customers, and what the ST1 X does is it brings some of the important features
from the ST2 to a more affordable price point. So the two key features brought to
the ST1 X from the Stromer ST2 line are the speed and power brought by the motor
system and the Omni display, which connects to your phone, gives you
anti-theft features, and allows you to tune your bike so that you can be riding
for longevity or you can be riding for speed. The bike comes standard with all
the items that you need to make it a great commuter bike. It’s got fenders, lights, a
rack, high-quality balloon tires, and hydraulic brakes that actuate your
regenerative braking so that when you brake, the motor actually slows you down,
which reduces wear on your brake pads. The battery, very importantly, uses the
same form factor as the ST2, which means that this 618 watt-hour
battery can be upgraded all the way up to the ST2 S’s 980 watt-hour battery. The
bike comes in a variety of sizes, from the 17-inch comfort frame all the way
to a 22-inch diamond frame, which means that, in reality, the bike
will fit people from the low 5 feet tall zone all the way to 6’6 or 6’8. We normally shy
away from really talking about price, but I think in the case of the ST1 X
would be remiss not to talk about it. This bike takes so many elements from the
ST2, which is a $7,000 bike, and puts it into a package at $4999. It
makes it available to more people, and this is a package that, you know, has
connectivity, traceability, is fun and fast and exciting to ride. It’s
something that’s going to really transform the urban commute experience. As a person
who’s ridden the ST2 for a long time, I can tell you that if you have a need for
speed, if you like to just go out and have fun on your way to work every day, you
absolutely have to try this platform. And now that it’s at a more affordable
price point, I think it’s gonna be more fun for more people to get on. With our 12
month financing, this stuff really becomes reachable for a lot of us to be able to
get to work on a bike. The Stromer ST1 X is a bicycle that is for
someone who likes speed, quick acceleration, long service
intervals, and has a commute that either needs to get done quickly or is little bit
on the longer side. Come in and test ride it yourself because I think you’ll be
super excited to be on the ST1 X. ♪ [music] ♪
