This week sees three exciting new e-bike models from three different brands, with Blix introducing a utility e-bike, G-FORCE releasing a moped-style ride, and Cyrusher leaking details on a high-performance eMTB.
No stranger to the world of utilitarian cargo bikes, Santa Cruz’s Blix announced the launch of an impressive new model, the Dubbel. Rolling on 20″ x 3.3″ Kenda fatties and powered by a 750W rear hub motor, the Dubbel is configurable with a single or double battery option and can deliver up to 80 miles of range.
G-FORCE’s new addition, the ZF, is a head-turning, moped-style electric bike with front and rear suspension. With its 750W brushless gear hub motor and two battery options, this is a fun new model that should sell well for the brand.
We also learned about the upcoming Cyrusher Ranger this week, a high-performance electric mountain bike that’s been in the works and will soon be available for purchase. Cyrusher is well-known for producing fun, fat tire rides for off-roading, and the new Ranger model is a stunner.
Also in the news, e-scooter manufacturer Yadea holds onto its title as the industry’s largest two-wheel EV brand, and Bianchi unveils its promising e-Vertic e-bike range.
And now, for this week’s noteworthy news from the personal EV world:
California-based e-bike manufacturer Blix has just released its latest e-bike, the Dubbel. A long-range model that’s ideal for riders in need of a utilitarian e-bike, the Dubbel features a modular design and can be easily configured to suit the needs of individual riders. With a wide range of available add-ons like front racks, cargo baskets, child seats, rear rack cushions, passenger seats, and more, the Dubbel is a super versatile ride that’s perfect for families, around-town errand running, delivery services, and more.
The Dubbel features a powerful 750W rear hub motor (1,350W peak and 90Nm of torque), 20” Kenda fat tires for all-terrain fun, full fenders, pedal-assist and throttle modes, hydraulic disc brakes, and built-in Bluetooth connectivity. The Dubbel is is can be ordered with an upgraded dual-battery configuration for up to 80 miles of range, making it a great choice for long-range riding.
The Blix Dubbel has an MSRP of $1,999, and the bike is currently on sale as part of the brand’s limited-time launch promotion. Alongside the popular Blix Packa Genie, the Dubbel is a viable car replacement that should become a best-seller for the brand.
G-FORCE has just announced the launch of its newest electric bike model, the ZF. The ZF is a moped-style electric bike with full suspension, fat tires, large headlight, and full fenders. It can be ordered with either a 48V 13.5Ah (648Wh) battery or a 48V 20Ah (960Wh) battery for extended range riding.
The ZF comes on the heels of recent news about the launch of the retro moto-inspired ZM, and we’re definitely impressed by the direction the brand is taking as it branches out from its early days as strictly a folding e-bike manufacturer. The ZF is powered by a BAFANG 750W gear hub motor and is nicely equipped with hydraulic disc brakes.
The MSRP for the base model is $1,899 and the upgraded version is $1,999.

Designed for rugged off-road riding, the Ranger features 26-inch x 4-inch fat tires, full suspension (with rear air suspension), a 20Ah lithium-ion battery pack, and a BAFANG 750W motor. The Ranger also packs a full-color display and comes equipped with front and rear fenders.
