The aim of Lectro bicycles is to redefine your everyday ride. Electric Pedal Assisted Bicycles use rechargeable batteries which can be charged using a power plug. These cycles come in varied designs, and are meant for all age groups. We got the opportunity to test ride the Lectro Essentia TX 27.5 SS and here is what we thought.

Lectro Essentia TX 27.5 SS Frame

The Lectro Essentia TX 27.5 SS is built on a full Alloy frame. Electric bicycles are generally considered heavy due to the battery and motor but the use of Alloy as the frame material helped keep the overall weight in check. The frame geometry was standard with a slanting top tube. This geometry helped with having an upright posture which is perfect for leisure rides and commutes. The Alloy rigid fork is bladed and aerodynamic in design. Whilst some might think that a suspension is needed for urban roads the Alloy frame helped absorb most vibrations of the surface and in turn give the rider a smooth ride experience.

The Essentia TX 27.5 SS Design

The The Essentia TX 27.5 SS which I test rode came in a full Grey primary colour on the frame with Green as the secondary colour for the graphics, text and logo. The matte finish paint job was of great quality with a smooth finish to it. The concealed battery inside the bottom tube made the bicycle look like any normal bicycle and thenrefore makes the frame look neat and also protects the battery from external contaminants.

Lectro Essentia TX 27.5 SS Gearing

This Electric bicycle comes with a single-speed drivetrain. There is no compulsory need for an electric cycle to have gears as the battery is going to over-power the gears on speed. For short commuting needs there will be no necessity of gears and this single-speed drivetrain is also easy to maintain. The lack of gearing components also decreases the weight of bicycle slightly.

Lectro Essentia TX 27.5 SS Battery and Motor

The Essentia TX 27.5 SS electric bicycle runs on a rear hub Shungfung motor. This motor is powered by a 36 volt, 5.8 AH lithium ion battery. The throttle on the right grip was easy to use and also brought out the fun factor on this E-bicycle. The 3-level pedal assist termed low, medium and high gives three different levels of power assist from the battery for each pedal. There is also a walk mode which helps get a constant speed for easy walking with the bicycle. The LED button display on the left side of the handlebar has the On/Off button, pedal assist level changer, walk mode button and also the battery level indicator. The maximum speed using battery power is 25kmph. As a safety feature there is a button next to the right hand side gip accelerator which can be used to switch on and switch off the accelerator function.

In 1 full charge this battery is capable of giving 30 kms in pedal assist mode and 22-25Kms in throttle mode. These mileages might differ a bit with the varied riding conditions. This battery takes 4 hours to charge from 0 to 100% with any normal Indian plug point with 440W power supply. The charging point for the battery is on the left side of the frame above the bottom bracket. The small downside to this charging method is that the bicycle has to be near a charging point as the battery is not detachable.

Lectro Essentia TX 27.5 SS Brakes and Steering

This electric bicycle’s stopping power is controlled by Sypo’s Mechanical Disc brake at the front and Sprandom’s V-brake at the rear. Both these brake were powerful enough to get the bicycle to stop safely and quickly at 20-25 kmph speeds.

The 630mm handlebar on this bicycle was of perfect length to give a comfortable riding posture for the rider. The grip throttle on the right was smooth and easy to use to accelerate.

Lectro Essentia TX 27.5 SS Wheels and Saddle

The 27.5” x 1.95” Urban tires on the Essentia SST were fast rolling on smooth and rough urban roads and were perfectly suited for an electric bicycle when riding at 25 kmph. The treads were perfect to give good traction on slightly rough roads and fast cornering. The stock PU Saddle was of perfect length and width to give the rider comfort on long bumpy rides.

This Alloy frame is lightweight and comfortable to ride. The concealed battery is neat and along with the smooth matte finish paint job makes the bicycles look aesthetic. The 3-level assist along with the throttle made the electric riding experience easy and enjoyable. The 27.5” x 1.95” tires were fast rolling on smooth and rough urban roads. Priced at Rs.21,000(as on 4th November 2019) the Lectro Essentia TX 27.5 SS is an ideal choice for anyone looking to buy an electric bicycle for leisure rides and commutes.
