With its brushed aluminum, satin clear finish and 20-inch rim frames, the Mariner is one of the cleanest looking and most compact e-bikes in its class. Weighing in at just 42 pounds, up to 25 percent lighter than its competitors, the Mariner is lightweight, portable, rust-resistant and easily stored, which is great for those on the go. When activated, the “power-on-demand” propulsion system can reach speeds of up to 17 mph from its free-spinning, 250-watt motor mounted to the front wheel, which delivers 500 watts at peak. Just give a half-twist to the throttle and away you go. The Mariner has a maximum range of 25 miles per charge thanks to the 38-volt, 6-amp hour advanced lithium ion battery (LiFePO4). You will love the control and dependability of the Avid BB5 front disc brake and 180 HS1 heat shedding rotor plus the efficient and reliable Single Digit 5 V in the rear. In addition to the high-end, salt-air friendly aluminum features, the Mariner is equipped with a durable KMC Rust Buster chain. This outstanding package ensures an effortless ride around town or along the shore, even while offering the option of pedaling for exercise.
