Gliding from A to B has never been this fun. The LYFE Equipped e-Bike energises you to get on and go, to tackle cross city trips and beyond with confidence, speed and joy.
LYFE Equipped keeps it breezy with a relaxed riding position and ergonomically designed contact points. Hop on and enjoy a comfortable ride that allows you to take in the world as you navigate the streets and trails amid the ebb and flow of daily life. At about 17kg (size large) LYFE Equipped is easy to lift and easy to live with.
Electric assistance is delivered by the rear hub drive Ebikemotion X35 system, manufactured by German automotive manufacturer MAHLE. The 36V 250W motor provides ample assistance for you to keep pace with traffic and cruise uphill, ensuring you reach your destination fast, with a smile upon your face.
LYFE Equipped has up to 75km (46 mile) range between charges so you can ride on in confidence as you power to your destination. When the mood strikes to work a little harder, the integrated iWoc controller allows you to select from three assistance levels on the fly, so you can choose when to sweat and when to glide.
This Equipped model is complete with full length mudguards, kickstand, rear pannier rack and integrated lights.
- Advanced lightweight aluminium frame with internal cable routing
- Lightweight, minimalist, integrated and sleek Ebikemotion assistance to help you go further and do more
- Tektro hydraulic disc brakes provide excellent stopping power and control
- Easy to use, slick shifting Shimano Deore 1x10 speed gearing
- Puncture resistant Schwalbe Road Cruiser Plus tyres
The sophisticated drive system provides enough smooth and reliable assistance at levels designed to amplify your input as discreetly as possible. And since the motor is at the hub, you'll experience almost drag-free pedalling when LYFE is not providing a push.
The smooth and balanced assist requires an advanced sensor. Blending perfectly with the sleek and discrete system of LYFE, the cassette lockring is replaced with a PAS sensor to monitor your pedalling input 40 times a second and adjusts the power accordingly.
The lightweight, compact battery is integrated into the downtube of the frame. LYFE is a new breed of lightweight e-bike that doesn't need a bulky, high-output battery.
Kinesis Lyfe Equipped review, Cycling Plus magazine, August 2021:
"...The simple 1x10-speed drivetrain courtesy of Shimano's workhorse Deore group never put a shifting foot wrong and works perfectly with the Praxis chainset. The range is spot on for urban and suburban riding with a top gear of 40/11 and the lightest a 40/42, which offers more than enough to ascend the steepest inclines, especially when you kick in the e-boost mode. The ride is smoothly comfortable and I always had confidence in the tyres, be it on tarmac or dirt. The Lyfe offers stable confident handling, plus huge equipment levels for the price, and I'll happily recommend it as a commuter and weekend cruiser."
Kinesis's first stab at a non-racy machine is a brilliant success.
