Momentum's new city e-bike features throttle- and pedal-assist modes

Published November 20, 2023

NEWBURY PARK, Calif. (BRAIN) — Momentum released its first throttle e-bike, the Cito E+, in the U.S. with a 75-mile range and 400-pound carrying capacity.

Giant Group's lifestyle brand caters to city transportation solutions. The Cito E+ is "moto-inspired," according to Momentum, blending Class 2 and Class 3 traits. Throttle assist ceases at 20 mph, and pedal assist at 28 mph. Three modes are available: Eco, Active, or Power, which provide assistance of 80% to 400% of a rider's effort. When using the throttle in Eco mode, riders can cover distances up to 45 miles on a charge, pedal assist up to 75 miles.

The Cito E+ features a 750-watt SyncDrive Move S motor with 80Nm of torque with an eight-speed drivetrain, 20-inch wheels and step-thru frame to fit riders between 4-foot-9 and 6-foot-3.

The 780Wh capacity battery has "optimized cell technology" that was co-developed with Panasonic to integrate the 22700 cell type, a high-density battery that is locked to the bike frame with a key, and can either be charged directly or removed from the bike to be recharged.

Also included are a horn, LED light with day and night modes, a rear brake light with turn signal function, lockable storage container, and the option to be stored upright for space saving.

The Cito E+ is available in select U.S. markets and online starting for $3,200.
