Take your e-biking to the next level with the 500XXT. If you’re looking for a sporty, long lasting, folding e-bike look no farther! We took the base of the 500XT and elevated it to a new level with a vast, extended range 21 Ah battery (the biggest in the industry!) and a robust, extra torquey 500W Bafang rear hub motor. All of this wrapped up in a compact and fold-able package.

500 XXT Folding Electric Fat Bike

If you thought our 500XT was a fine specimen of e-bike technology, wait till you lay eyes on our 500XXT. We took the base of the XT and elevated the experience with a more powerful, higher torque motor and THE BIGGEST battery in the industry! Say no to the competitors’ tricks and gimmicks and say yes to simply the very best fat folding e-bike available on the market today.

The competition is quick to over estimate the range of their similar style e-bikes. Often estimating 40km to 70km and more for only a 14Ah battery! Based on their calculations the possible range of our 21Ah battery would be 60km to 110km. But we understand that these fairy tale ideals and real life don’t exactly line up and that the actual range most of our customers get is lower then the fairy tale. Which is why we advertise a real life range of 45km to 85km or more per charge, because we believe in honesty and transparency with our customers.

Like the 500 XT the 500 XXT is a great all-rounder. Perfect for anything you have in mind. The daily commute? No problem! RV camping? Heck yeah! Weekend warrioring? Bring it on! The wide 4″ wide tires offer great stability and traction, great for all levels of riders and all terrains. While the up right position makes it comfortable for long rides, and with the suspension fork, seat post and balloon tires it’s like riding on a cloud. And hills? No longer a concern with the extra powerful, higher torque 500W Bafang hub motor which is perfect for faster acceleration and hill climbing.

The 500 XXT comes fully loaded with accessories and top quality parts, no hidden costs here! Some of the other brands don’t include key features like fenders, suspension seat posts and racks, and they skimp out on lower quality parts. Whether that’s a small, uncomfortable saddle; a cheap, difficult to use shifter; or a boring, uninspired display, it all translates to you paying more, and ultimately getting less for your money. But at Ride the Glide it’s not about squeezing the most profit from our customers. It’s about delivering a high quality e-bikes that save our customers money and last them for years and years to come. No wonder we also offer a longer warranty then the competition.

A favorite feature of the 500 XXT is it’s folding ability. Perfect for limited storage situations, packing in your car, SUV, truck, RV or boat, you name it! Check out our “How to Fold” blog and see just how easy it is! It’ll open your world up wide to all new possibilities and tons of fun.
