OHM XS 750 Review

26er Pro Reviews Video

Bottom Line
The OHM XS 750 is a high quality electric bike with many features, and has a well built and sturdy frame, and a plethora of great components. It can be ridden on and off road (nothing too rugged), and its trail prowess is greatly aided by a suspension fork and seatpost. The bike is easy to ride, and the comfortable upright position, low center of gravity and good balance, make for a pleasant usage. It uses the excellent and intelligent BionX 350W motor, their long life 37V 9.6ah Lithium Manganese battery, and the intuitive BionX control console for operational needs. It has 4 different assist levels for pedaling help, and 4 regenerate levels for training or just battery recharging, and rear brake also does the latter. The motor is quiet and smooth, and the pedaling assistance makes one feel like someone is pushing you along, and makes the bike fly along. Recharging is easy, and the detachable battery allowed it to be brought into the office or home for that purpose.

My favorite feature on the bike was the throttle button, which greatly helped on steep hills, or when I felt lazy. The bike is expensive, and it’s quite a hefty package at almost 60 lbs.

The OHM XS 750 is an amazing e-bike, and for commuting, family outings, and leisure outdoor adventures, this is a great purposeful built entity.

Brian has been part of the Mtbr team since 2007, where he has become an integral member of the review and test staff, specializing in technical articles. He likes to push the limits in all the sports he obsesses in, whether it's mountain biking, whitewater kayaking, extreme skiing, or sport climbing. He takes those same strengths and a good dose of insanity to his reviewing and writing on mountain biking products, creating technical, in-depth and hyperbolic articles. Whenever he's not on the bike, he might be found watching MotoGP racing, otherwise look for him out on extremely technical singletrack.

    Cycle is lacking in performance. battery mileage not as indicated, excessive $ for replacement parts/battery, extreme lack of customer service professionalism.this technology has a major flaw-short battery life-its the most vital part of the bike, needs more research & developement or just keep scamming people
