Cyrusher was founded in 2014 by Harry Xie, and since that time, the brand has emerged as a leading maker of high-performance fat tire electric bikes. With 6 rides in its 2023 range plus a growing range of accessories, the Cyrusher brand continues to expand and we're excited to see what the future holds for the company.
Cyrusher e-bikes are backed by a rock-solid 2-year warranty which provides a generous amount of coverage in the event of a manufacturing defect.

Cyrusher XF800 Review: E-Bike Overview
The Cyrusher XF800 electric MTB is a tough and capable machine that’s designed to tackle steep hills and rough terrain. Featuring full suspension, good brakes, and a beefy battery, this is a well-equipped ride that’s built from the ground up to be ridden hard.
We’ve always been impressed at how well Cyrusher’s fat tire e-bikes tackle steep hills and rough terrain, and the XF800 delivers the goods, as expected. The powerful 750-watt BAFANG motor is identical to the one used in the top-of-the-line Cyrusher XF900, and it peaks at 1500W while putting out 80Nm of torque. Also, shifting on the bike is nice and smooth, courtesy of the 7-Speed Shimano Tourney drivetrain.
Mounted to the top of the bike’s downtube is a 48V 13Ah Samsung/LG battery that’s waterproof rated at IP65 and packs 50 miles of range on a single charge. Cable management on the XF800 could definitely be improved, but that’s something that can easily be taken care of.
The included saddle is another weak spot on this model, and if you’re also planning to use this bike as a commuter, it’s something we’d recommend upgrading.
The XF800’s rear rack is handy to have and it’s super convenient for attaching pannier bags or hauling groceries and other supplies.
Stopping power on the XF800 is impressive, thanks to the Star Union hydraulic disc brakes. We also love the pairing of the bike’s full suspension and 26″ x 4″ Chaoyang fat tires which deliver a stable, smooth ride regardless of the terrain.
Ideal for riders between 5’5″ and 6’1″, the Cyrusher XF800 is 75.5″ long with a wheelbase of 47.2″. The seat height can be adjusted between 34.6″ and 41.7″, and the bike weighs in at 74 pounds (66 pounds without the battery). This is a big, heavy bike that isn’t the easiest to manage when it comes to storage and transport, so if you’re looking for something that offers the off-road capabilities of the XF800 in more portable package, we also recommend checking out the Cyrusher XF690 Maxs or the lighter weight XF650.

Overall ride quality on the XF800 is excellent. The combination of fat tires and full suspension deliver a comfortable riding experience that’s super stable, regardless of the terrain. While the stock suspension setup isn’t top-shelf, it’ll meet the needs of most riders and can be easily upgraded by customers who want to take things to the next level.
The BAFANG rear hub motor is zippy, putting out plenty of torque and acceleration for most situations. The XF800 has an extremely responsive throttle and power delivery is a bit more aggressive in that mode when compared to riding with the bike’s pedal-assist levels.
Cyrusher is well-known for making robust e-bikes and the brand’s build quality is good. While not quite on the same level as higher-priced bikes costing two or three times more, the XF800 is an excellent value and the model enjoys a large fan base of happy customers.
Styling is always subjective, and Cyrusher’s bright colorways aren’t always our favorite. Having said that, we do like the fact that the company provides customers with four different color options (White, Green, Blue, and Red), and the white version looks beautiful in our opinion.
Fat tire bikes are always head-turners, and the Cyrusher XF800 is no exception. This is a large, aggressive-looking ride that is sure to attract a lot of attention, so keep that in mind if you live in an urban environment where bike theft is a real concern.
Cyrusher includes a nice bundle of accessories with the XF800. In the box, you’ll find a battery charger, air pump, e-bike toolkit, assembly guide, user manuals, and Cyrusher sticker pack. In addition to the bundled accessories, the company also sells a nice range of add-on accessories that you can order to upgrade your ride. Included in Cyrusher’s accessory store are pannier bags, replacement kickstands, helmets, tubes, tires, and more.
Cyrusher has earned an excellent reputation for its customer service, and the company is responsive to rider issues. In addition to a variety of contact options including phone, live chat, and its website contact form, Cyrusher also maintains an active online community that is an excellent resource for all owners.
Also, whenever we’re rating electric bikes, we always test the responsiveness of each brand’s customer support department. We’re happy to report that someone over at Cyrusher quickly responded to our support ticket, sending us a reply in just a few hours…
