You never know what's going to happen at an
ebike show or what you're going to come across and one of the interesting things
that stood out to me were these fine highly crafted also very expensive
Italian Ebikes from a company called Fantic. Let's go check them out! I should have had her do we went over to that
little place that makes the little jacks on the top of your thing so oh yeah I'm going to go talk
to that guy Andy she had a little talk with him but she had a recording I was like all right well
I'm going to just start checking this stuff out how are you doing awesome yourself good probably
get a lot of comments about the frame huh oh it's a work of art there huh it is it's very
nice I like it but it's only 250 watts I don't know how much it costs but it looks nice
do you think our customers would buy that or do you think if we had it we'd attract
customers that would buy it that's the question Jory's like oh you're looking at the
crusader well let me tell you about check out the rear swing arm look at that he carbon section of that those are machined what brakes are those
those are milled brake levers and and housings those are nice i mean they they
purposefully left the tool marks What do you think of those bad boys?
I think those brakes are beautiful! They did they did a good job that's yeah.
You've been around braking? Yeah a little bit there we go.
Made in Italy they've actually went back to the two pistons instead of fourth they're going volume these are working
as good or better than the itself okay so good luck with them so far
they're they're brand new and they're coming with steel braided lines did
you notice that i did not catch that actually that's so when you're running difference in
the motorcycle world you're running plastic versus steel braided you you're great you're
precise right yes there's no swell in your mind bicycle probably don't fill it a 50 pound hauling
butt downhill then you start to feel it you start to feel it.
Fantic is moto oriented right there
they build motorcycles.
Do you mind being on camera with the microphone telling us a little more?
Our bikes are going to have a little moto tint to them okay with the Renthal braking.
Which I was looking at the machining on the brakes and the housings that's pretty unique there's only a small
handful of companies doing anything like that multiple adjustments for lever adjustment
okay running the steel brake steel braided lines very nice floating rotors the bat
wings oh yeah two piston high volume calipers we're running the olins on the
this is the the yeah let me come around running the TTX rear coil shock Very very programmable. Runing the big S mag motor bros 720 battery.
I think we have one of the
largest batteries now out of the ebike world It's it's getting there I got some bigger but you
know it's getting there carbon fiber seats days yeah that looks really good really nice huh Ilike
that and another little moto inspired aluminum subframe over the years we've moved our mounting
forward so it gives us more seat post adjustment so what's this model called this is the race
it's the XF which would stand for enduro okay so we have a trail which is our 150s model
we have the enduros which is 190 mils of travel and then we have our all mountain which is a 170
this model right over here it's 1.7 mils of travel and then we have a 200 which is the beast
out front front and center that's it so if you want a lot of travel a lot
of travel running olins up front 38 TTX in the rear same geometry
just running the crown fork and price point say on something like this on
our on our factory race we're running at 79.90 I couldn't quote you on this one not yet this
is new this is this is new so there's a 2022 model yes kind of thing coming out yes sir now
how about the the unique little step through here commuter it's got a multi shifter in the hub It's got the 630 battery
It's running the Bafang motor and the frame of course just looks super
cool frame is super cool they actually have a what they call side plates that
you can fill this in in different colors what they offer gives you a
little more variety they also have um your they have one without a rack
and one with a rack sport and Fat tires obviously a little
better ride built-in lighting it's a class one so it's gonna have your 20 mile
an hour limit on it lemon so the bikes the most assembly done in Italy i see manufactured in Italy
on the sign and then shipped over here cool those were some really cool components i especially
like those Italian made breaks with all of the milling features that you could see just really
really super cool i really like seeing those up close and in person and I hope you enjoyed
that too there's still more to come from the Sea Otter Classic make sure you check out
all of the videos about that right here.
