Super73 is recognized for partnerships that have actually seen its preferred electrical bikes take style hints from renowned brand names, sporting activities groups, as well as various other social symbols. After displaying a stunning idea bike in 2014 created under a cooperation with Roland Sands Layout, the business has actually currently made a decision to develop a limited-edition manufacturing variation of the appealing electrical bike.
RSD x SUPER73-RX Malibu e-bike released
The initial idea was pitched as an off-road racing-style e-bike, as well as the specifications absolutely measure up to that name.
It was improved the base of Super73’s flagship RX-series e-bikes, which include completely flexible dual-suspension styles, high-power electric motors, as well as high-capacity batteries.
The brand-new e-bike, called the RSD x SUPER73-RX Malibu, will certainly keep the very same flexible RX upside down front air fork located on all RX versions, yet includes a Fox Competing Float 3 Evol back shock system to boost trip high quality as well as handling.
The supply 960 Wh battery has actually been transferred from the leading tube to the down tube, giving way for an added lengthy tracker bench seat in its location. The business states the brand-new seat ought to offer the cyclist added variety of movement while auto racing (or simply travelling the roads).
The reduced battery will likely additionally boost taking care of in the turns by decreasing the bike’s center of mass.
The bike maintains the supply RX’s 2,000 W peak-rated center electric motor, which uses rates of over 28 miles per hour (25 km/h) in opened setting. That setting is typically booked for off-road riding. Cyclists can choose from even more minimal settings to maintain the bike road lawful under numerous neighborhood guidelines.
Course 1 setting restricts the bike to 20 miles per hour (32 km/h) with 750W of continual power as well as 1,200 W of peak power, yet disengages the throttle. Course 2 setting (which is the default setting when delivered in the United States) includes the throttle back right into the mix as well as Course 3 setting bumps the rate to 28 miles per hour (45 km/h) on pedal aid.
An updated Magura four-piston front brake caliper has actually been included, together with brief brake bars to “raise accuracy” securing down on that supply 203mm blades.
The RSD x SUPER73-RX Malibu additionally obtains an updated mid-bar handlebar with bar pad as well as ODI Brute ATV holds, which were included in bench finishes utilizing gold lock rings inscribed with “SUPER73.”
A lot more gold accents can be located in gold pins on the Crank Brothers “Stamp 2” pedals along with a gold KMC Z410 chain.
Including in the visuals, the bike is dressed up in RSD graphics that offer it a much more eye-popping look than supply Super73s (which are anything yet ordinary seeking to start with).
Last but not least, the e-bike obtains updated 20 × 4″‘ front as well as 5″ back GRZLY tires, simply in situation the supply tires weren’t enormous enough.
As Super73 cofounder as well as CMO Michael Cannavo discussed:

As if the manufacturing had not been restricting sufficient, the cost is most likely to limit the possible market also: An awesome $4,500.

Electrek’ s take
It’s pricey, yet thinking about exactly how swiftly Super73 markets e-bikes, I do not assume they will certainly have difficulty relocating a thousand RSD x SUPER73-RX Malibu versions.
I understand appearances are subjective, yet I assume it’s amazing as well as I would certainly like to have one myself.
Routine Electrek viewers might keep in mind that we recently spent a few weeks riding Super73 e-bikes around Germany while seeing a couple of market programs. The bikes were quickly, effective, as well as comfy, creating excellent city attack lorries.
With all the upgrades as well as naturally the brand-new aesthetic appeals from RSD, these limited-edition e-bikes make sure to be much more enjoyable.
If you can manage them.
For those that still desire the Super73 experience yet do not have a fat sufficient budget, take a look at the brand name’s even more budget-friendly versions. I just recently took a ride on the Super73-ZX that can be found in at much less than fifty percent of this cost. You can see that trip video clip listed below.
