Based in Shenzhen, China, Cyrusher is one of those start-ups aspiring to become a benchmark in the electric bicycle market. After unveiling the XF650 last August, the company decided to put the cover back, this time with an off-road eBike that looks like a motorcycle. Stronger and with nicer components, the Everest XF900 is designed as a dual-purpose bike.
An all-terrain electric bike
Thanks to its Kenda 26 ″ x 4 ″ puncture-proof wheels, the machine is suitable for trail running and city trips. Added to this is a full suspension consisting of three shocks (two at the front and one at the rear) capable of withstanding a pressure of up to 340 kg, or 10 times the weight of the bike (battery included).
For braking, Cyrusher opted for a pair of Tektro 180mm hydraulic disc brakes. The electric bike also has an LCD screen and a 250 lumen LED lamp. On the engine side, the Everest XF900 is powered by a 750W (1000W peak) Bafang motor integrated into the rear hub.
Thanks to this power, it promises a top speed of 45 km / h. Two battery configurations are available. The “Everest Base” which has a 48V, 13Ah (624Wh) battery is supposed to have a range of about fifty kilometers, against around 80 km for the “Plus” model. In fact, the latter is powered by a removable 48V, 17Ah (816Wh) battery.
Two prices for two configurations
Price wise, the base model is priced at $ 1,999, while the version that offers more battery life costs $ 2,499. Both offer pedaling assistance. However, unlike the cheaper variant which has a 7-speed Shimano drivetrain, the Cyrusher Everest XF900 “Plus” incorporates a 21-speed unit. Added to this are equipment offered as options on the Base version, including a mudguard and an LED lamp at the rear.

Note that the start-up has also launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo. At the time of writing, the program has 8 backers for a total of 86,049 Hong Kong dollars (€ 9,397) of the 300,000 Hong Kong dollars (€ 32,760) that Cyrusher hopes to cash. There are still about thirty days before the end of the campaign.
