eZee Forza (19AH)
Powerful, low maintenance e-bike designed for both city riding and trails.
The Forza silently eliminates the strains of headwinds and hills. It’s Shimano 9 Speed Deore rear sprockets and derailleur coupled with our unique high performance motor smoothly powers your ride. It has quickly become a popular choice for off road electric bicycle tourers but also riders who prioritise the ride quality of a rear wheel drive electric bicycle and the comfort from the long travel from suspension forks. The long travel at the front raises the bottom bracket higher off the ground than other models, providing more clearance over rocks and branches and also creating a relaxed cruising riding position.
The one and only Cape York electric bicycle, the eZee Forza Rear Wheel Drive (with slight modifications) rode where no electric bicycle had ever been before – the Bloomfield Track, the old Telegraph Track and all the way to the Northernmost tip of the Australian continent in far north tropical Queensland.
Since its return from the successful 4500km trip it has quickly become a popular choice for off road electric bicycle tourers but also riders who prioritise the ride quality of a rear wheel drive electric bicycle and the comfort from the long travel from suspension forks. The long travel at the front raises the bottom bracket higher off the ground than other models, providing more clearance over rocks and branches and also creating a relaxed cruising riding position.
The eZee Forza is available in both MTB and City formats, with different choice of accessories. The city version received a very favourable and detailed review, smashing all other bikes in its category for range and speed. Check it out on the Electric Bike Reviews website.
