The Segway Dirt eBike is the ultimate electric bicycle

The Segway Dirt eBike is well on its way into production from its IndieGoGo campaign and we can’t wait to see it out on the road. Living somewhere between a traditional dirt bike and an eco-friendly mountain bike, this electric dirt bike gives us a whole new way to slay the trails.

Don’t just take our word for it, Fox, Mashable, Popular Mechanics, TechCrunch, and Gear Junkie have all jumped on the fan-wagon as well. 

Some of the key features we are loving on the Segway Dirt eBike is the swappable batteries, lightweight design, and 74.6 miles of range on this baby. With a 0-31 MPH in 4.02 seconds, the Dirt eBike hits a max speed at 46.6 mph.

The lightweight frame and shock reduction system make it a perfect companion for hitting the mountain trails. And of course, the best part is that it is electric! 

The frame is made of aluminum and weighs in at a mere 121.3 lbs. There are two models for this bike: the x260 & x160. The x260 can climb up to a forty-five-degree slope.
