The iconic Italian bicycle firm Bianchi announces the launch of a new range of electric bicycles called E-Vertic, all of them designed around a more or less radical use, but always with off-road capabilities in mind. Among all of them, the E-Vertic FX-Type stands out, while the E-Vertic FX-Type Pro stands out as the top of the range, although the prices of the latter are not yet known.
As specified by the brand itself, the E-Vertic range starts with the 2,949 euros of the E-Vertic C-Typewhich is the most urban model, followed by the 3,049 euros of the T-Type, somewhat more capable than the first thanks to its more dynamic geometry.
Above these two models there are three others whose dynamic capabilities seem far above, as its price attests. The midpoint of the E-Vertic range is the X-Type, which with a hardtail-type geometry is postulated as the most versatile in the range and costs 3,499 euros.
Above the X-Type are the FX-Type and FX-Type Pro. These are two full-suspension bikes with a performance cut. While the first is designed for amateur use that may even be appropriate for road days, the second takes a step forward in specifications, allowing the enduro label, according to the brand itself. The FX-Type is priced at 5,299 euros.
The specified prices are those related to the international Bianchi website, but they should not differ too much from the specific ones for Spain. To know the price of the FX-Type Pro, we will have to wait for the first quarter of 2023.
Bianchi E-Vertic FX-Type
Of all the bicycles presented by Bianchi for its E-Vertic range, the one that will be most interesting (at least in media terms) will be the E-Vertic FX-Type, which without being as radical as the top of the range, is postulated What a calmer trail that can promise good behavior on dirt tracks.
In accordance with its older sister, it loses the carbon-composite geometry but makes use of the same pedaling assistance scheme (although the entire range enjoys the latter). It is an electrical system manufactured by Bosch, a Cx Performance Line, the best of the German specialist. The motor delivers 250 W of nominal power and up to 85 Nm of torque.
Its battery is not far behind, as it offers 750 Wh of capacity with which you can complete routes of up to 155 kilometers. Another aspect in which it cuts benefits with respect to the Pro version is in its suspension. The FX-Type makes do with 140 millimeters of travel. There are different assemblies among which the person responsible for the suspension varies, being it FOX or RockShox.
In all the assembly, a system of 200-millimeter diameter discs bitten by four-piston calipers (which can be Magura or Shimano) and a change made by SRAM is common.
