CrossCurrent S Spring Delivery **DEPOSIT TO RESERVE ONLY** Scroll down for pricing
Posted by Gord on 2018 Jan 23rd
To date, this bike has provided me everything I was hoping for. Not only is it practical, it is fun! Be aware though, you're going faster than you're used to on a bike.
This is beast

Did a lot of research looking for a bike that could handle hills, have a good range and yet allow me a work out. I tried a Stromer at Whistler for the day and this was my benchmark for looking for a bike. So far I am not disappointed. This bike roars up the hills with minimal effort if I want and is very responsive . It is well built and looks great in the polished finish. Hilleater Bikes were awesome and kept me in the loop during the purchase process and David was ever available for any issues or questions. I am anxious for some better weather to get biking!
First impressions are impressive!

Ordered my CCS back in early November. I had a bunch of questions and David was extremely helpful and responded so quickly every time which was awesome customer service. I have made a few upgrades including a body float, a new stem to raise the handlebars and I am waiting for the Marathon Plus tires. The courier service was very good despite some bad online reports I had no issues. The packaging was very substantial and protected the bike well. I assembled the few parts easily although if I am picky, the front mud guard is tricky to straighten. Also the battery isn't clicking in securely all the time but this could be due to the extremely cold weather in Ontario. I have taken it for a couple of short rides and everything seems great. I am so excited for warmer weather so I can range test and see how I feel after a few hours in the saddle. Considering the price I am very happy and would recommend the CCS and David is exceptional.
Comes with standard Juiced 1 year warranty against manufacturing defects. Lifetime warranty on frame to the original customer.
Covers components / battery/electrical. Battery is warrantied to have at least 70% of original capacity after 1 year. Tires, tubes and brake pads/rotors are excluded. In the event that there is a warranty claim and we determined that the frame, a part, or the battery is faulty or failed due to defective workmanship
by us, we will fully replace such at no charge, however, replacement labor and shipping cost is not covered by this warranty. Normal wear and damage is not covered by this warranty.
If you are consistently using the bike in the rain we suggest filling the electrical connectors with dielectric grease as an extra precaution. (This can be purchased at any automotive supply retailer) Be sure to properly re seat the larger push-on connectors, they will click into place with a firm push. (If you are unsure about this, have your dealer do it for you.)

Fully Focused, Fully Loaded:
We interviewed our customers and have heard what you're looking for. We researched exactly how our bikes are being used in the real world. We studied every product on the market and visited all of our key suppliers.
We set the performance targets sky high and demanded only the highest value and the highest performance components available today.
We drew from 8 years of e-bike manufacturing experience to conceive the most complete e-bike commuter ever. On top of this we optimized every aspect of our operation to bring this product to market at an affordable price.
The result is a more capable vehicle, built on the game changing CrossCurrent platform and re-focused on the task of e-bike commuting. It is impossible to beat the performance, quality and value of the CrossCurrent S.
The CrossCurrent S is in production and will arrive in Canada November 2017. (Stay tuned for updates on the container arrival) There will only be 30 CCS available for the whole of Canada until the next shipment arrives spring 2018. Consider pre-ordering yours today to avoid disappointment.
Note that these units do not have the GPS option mentioned elsewhere.
How far can I go on a single charge?
We get this question a lot. The answer is quite complicated and can not be really distilled to one single number. Some manufacturers post very "ideal" range figures, so it is difficult to compare range from bike to bike.
Posting the "real world" range number might not appear impressive and could hurt sales. We aim to give a true picture of our bike's battery range.
The truth: Range depends on many factors including...
Total payload, rider + gear
How much you pedal
Type of battery
Age of the battery
So... how far can I go??
The range you can go is basically boiled down to this:
How much energy you have onboard
How much energy you need to go one mile
This is all great. But HOW FAR CAN I GO!?
Hang on, we will get there. To answer this question properly, we have conducted real-world test to find out how much energy you need to go one mile. We can then extrapolate the data to get a close estimate of how far you can expect to go on a charge.
How we did the range test:
The first thing we must do is to lock in a few factors and use throttle-only test. Then we did the same test but with pedal assist. The numbers will trend smoothly and be repeatable. Then we know we have real results.
Payload of the rider:
About 190 pounds, this includes some gear.
We use the stock tires at 60 psi. Higher pressure will result in more range but a harder ride, lower pressure will result in lower range but a softer ride.
The road surface is more or less normal with a few bumps. Bumps are basically small walls that crash into the wheels and slow the bike down.
The surface is more or less level, but the test circuit does go up and down somewhat.
It is difficult to find an area with absolutely no wind. The test circuit does have a little bit of wind, but it tends to blow in only one direction.
Warm temperatures of around 80 degrees or more. Cold weather will reduce the range.
Range: Throttle Only, No Pedaling
For these test, the speed limit is set to 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20 mph and we run around a level ground loop. The pattern will emerge and we can clearly see how efficient the bike is at each of those speeds. The results are posted in the "Throttle Only / No Pedaling" row.
So for example if you have a 17.4 Ah battery pack and you want to average 18 mph without pedaling, if you set the cruise control to 18 mph you can expect to go about 50 miles on level ground without stops. If you drop the speed to 14 mph, you can expect to go about 65 miles.
Range: Assist Level 3 with Normal Pedaling
Any pedaling will decrease the workload of the battery and as a result increase the range. It is hard to calculate exactly how hard someone pedals as everyone is of different fitness levels.
For the pedal assist range test, we set the pedal assist to level 3 and the speed limit to 10, 12, 14 etc. up to 24 mph. The rider is instructed to pedal evenly and normally as if riding a normal bike.
The pattern will emerge and we can get a good idea of the pedal assist range for a given speed. The results are posted in the "Assist Level 3 / Normal Pedaling" row.
So for example if you have a 21.0 Ah battery pack and you want to average about 20 mph with normal pedaling, you can expect to go about 63 miles. If you drop the speed to around 14 mph, you can expect to go around 104 miles.
How far can I go in SPORT mode?
This gets even more complicated and we will follow up with more test to provide a clear answer. Sport Mode provides a lot of boost to get the bike up to higher speeds. Then it relies on a mix of pedaling and motor power to maintain the top speed.
As the bike goes faster and faster the motor is able to provide less and less assistance. At some point the forces pushing the bike forward equals the forces pushing the bike backwards and you settle at the top speed.
We expect the range in sport mode to be similar to Assist level 3 when riding below 24 mph. At the higher speeds, the wind becomes a huge factor and the results will not be so linear.
To maintain speeds of 28 mph and higher in SPORT mode, the rider will need to do more than a leisurely amount of pedaling. So the normal test cannot be conducted and this will throw off the numbers somewhat.
