Fat-tire electric bikes (ebikes) have long been a favorite for off-road enthusiasts, but Lankeleisi’s X3000 Max takes the experience to another level with its dual-motor, two-wheel drive configuration. In a market saturated with single-motor options, the X3000 Max stands out by incorporating two 1,000-W brushless hub motors—one in each wheel. This design choice reflects the company’s commitment to performance and versatility, making it a noteworthy contender in the adventure ebike segment.

Power and performance

The X3000 Max is designed for riders who demand more from their off-road ebikes. Each motor contributes to a combined maximum torque of 95 Nm (70 lb.ft), allowing the bike to tackle inclines as steep as 40 degrees. The dual-motor setup can be operated in single motor mode or full dual motor mode, providing flexibility depending on the terrain and rider preference. When both motors are engaged, the X3000 Max can reach an impressive top speed of 51 km/h (32 mph).

Battery and range

Housed within the sturdy aluminum-alloy folding frame is a 48-V/20-Ah (960-Wh) battery built with Samsung 21700 cells. This substantial power source offers a range of up to 130 km (80 miles) in the lowest pedal-assist mode. For those who prefer throttle-only riding, the range is approximately 70 km (43.5 miles). This balance of power and endurance makes the X3000 Max suitable for extended off-road excursions.

Suspension and brakes

To ensure a smooth ride over rugged terrain, the X3000 Max is equipped with a lockable suspension fork offering 120 mm of travel and an oil spring rear suspension. The 20-inch alloy wheels are wrapped in 4-inch-wide fat tires, further enhancing the bike’s ability to handle bumpy trails. For reliable stopping power, the bike features hydraulic disc brakes with 180-mm rotors, ensuring safety and control in various riding conditions.

Design and build

Despite its robust build, the X3000 Max is designed with practicality in mind. Weighing in at 37 kg (81.5 lb), it’s relatively heavy, but its folding capability—collapsing down to dimensions of 99.8 x 99.8 x 69.95 cm (39.3 x 39.3 x 27.5 in)—makes it easier to transport in a car trunk. The bike includes a rear rack capable of carrying up to 24 kg (55 lb) of gear, and it supports a total load of 180 kg (400 lb), including the rider. It is suitable for individuals with heights ranging from 1.7 to 1.9 m (5.5 – 6.2 ft).

A large moto-style high-brightness LED headlight ensures visibility during both day and night rides, and the bike’s IP54 rating offers a degree of protection against dust and water splashes.

Pricing and availability

Priced at $2,399, the Lankeleisi X3000 Max is positioned as a mid-range option in the adventure ebike market. It is available in two color options, though current stock levels in the US are noted to be limited. The bike is shipped with fenders (which are not pre-installed), a bike lock, tools, and an air pump.
