Electric Beach Cruisers: The New Must-Have for Summer!
Summer is officially here, and its finally time for some relaxation! Whether you plan to enjoy the warm weather on the beach or spend the season in your hometown, no summer is complete without a leisurely bike ride.
With the Electric Beach Cruiser from FreeForce, you’ll experience the joy of bike riding without the strain and exhaustion of traditional cycling. Our durable electric bikes are perfect for daily rides to and from the beach, or relaxing excursions around your neighborhood throughout the summer.
What is a Beach Cruiser Bike?
As an eco-friendly alternative to traditional transportation, the Beach Cruiser e-bike is powered by an electric motor, allowing riders to move the bike entirely with power or providing a boost up steep terrain. This electric bike is the perfect accessory for a beach vacation, as riders can travel at speeds up to 20 miles per hour without breaking a sweat.
Electric bikes produce zero carbon-dioxide emissions, making them more environmentally conscious than an automobile or motorcycle. The frame of a Beach Cruiser is nearly indistinguishable from a traditional bicycle, apart from the electric motor. In fact, the Beach Cruiser can pedal as normal without any assistance from the motor, increase the rider’s pedal power when needed, or move the bicycle entirely with electric power.
Motorized Beach Cruiser
The motorized Beach Cruiser is an excellent choice for any recreational rider, ideal for leisurely rides on the boardwalk and throughout a beach town. Providing three different levels of pedal assistance, the e-bike takes the pressure off your joints while riding, delivering an enjoyable cycling alternative for those with physical limitations or health conditions.
Not to mention, the Beach Cruiser is fully equipped for all your adventures and commutes. Designed with a control panel, a rear storage rack, and a water bottle rack, this e-bike will quickly become a staple of your summer vacations.
Since the Beach Cruiser has a top speed of 20 miles per hour, this electric bike is a license-free mode of transportation. Also, its slim frame makes it simple to store in any garage or apartment, without the stress of street parking.

How to Choose a Beach Cruiser E-Bike
When choosing the perfect electric bike for your lifestyle, you’ll want to consider the sizes and speculations of the Beach Cruiser to guarantee that the bike is the ideal choice for you. In general, different e-bike models are shaped and designed for different sized people, so it’s essential to check out sizing charts before purchasing your bike.
FreeForce offers several high-quality models: the Electric Beach Cruiser, the Electric Commuter Bike, and the Electric Mountain Bike, each with their own weight and height limits. The models are also intended for different types of terrain, so you’ll need to invest in a bike that perfectly fits your needs.
What is the weight limit?
The weight limit of most electric bikes usually ranges between 200 and 300 pounds. The Electric Beach Cruiser has a weight capacity of 275 pounds, allowing a higher limit compared to most e-bikes on the market. In fact, this weight limit remains the same across all of the current FreeForce models available.
What size bike do I need?
While there is a standard weight capacity for all of the FreeForce models, each e-bike has its own suggested height range. Equipped with a 16-inch aluminum frame, 26-inch wheels, and an adjustable seat, the Beach Cruiser is best suited for riders between 5’2” and 5’10”.
If the Beach Cruiser is not an ideal size for you, take a look at our Electric Commuter Bikes and Electric Mountain Bike, both designed with larger frames for taller riders.

Elements to Consider
When investing in an electric bike, there are a few elements that you’ll need to keep in mind during your search. At FreeForce, we ensure that our bikes are designed with your busy lifestyle in mind, including a long-lasting battery capacity, durable construction, and high-quality materials.
Each FreeForce Electric Bike model provides riders with excellent battery capacity, designed with a 5-hour charge time and 35 to 50 miles of travel per charge. For additional protection, the removable and rechargeable lithium-ion battery is secured with battery locks to prevent theft.
When riding your Electric Beach Cruiser, the battery length will depend on your use of the pedal assistance for sporadic boosts of power, or the thumb throttle for a fully electric ride. If you choose one of the three levels of pedal assist, you can travel between 30 and 50 miles, with 4 hours of charge. If you rely heavily on the thumb throttle for minimal physical exertion, you can travel between 20 and 35 miles, with 2 hours of charge.
Whether you plan to ride your e-bike on the boardwalk, around your hometown, or during a daily commute to the beach, you’ll enjoy an electric and stress-free experience, without worrying about trips to the gas station for fuel.
Traditional bikes are designed with a variety of different tire sizes, often available in 16-inch, 20-inch, 24-inch, and 26-inch options. Best fit for adults, the Electric Beach Cruiser from FreeForce is equipped with 26-inch tires, providing riders with a smooth biking experience and making the bike simple and easy to steer.
With a 16-inch aluminum frame, the Electric Beach Cruiser is ideal for comfortable and casual biking. Available with a vibrant orange or light blue exterior, the e-bike provides riders with a perfect blend of style and durability.

What to Know Before You Go
Once you’ve chosen your e-bike, it’s essential to stay informed on road safety and proper precautions. Here are a few common questions about electric bike safety and riding regulations.
Are electric bikes safe?
Like most transportation options, there are a few key safety precautions that you’ll want to take before riding your Electric Beach Cruiser. Most importantly, you’ll need to follow any traffic laws and be mindful of pedestrians to guarantee that you stay safe on the road. Also, don’t forget to wear a helmet!
Are electric bikes street legal?
When choosing the perfect e-bike for your lifestyle, it’s important to check your state and local regulations. For example, in some states, electric bikes are considered mopeds, and therefore follow the same rules on the road. Although electric bikes do not require a license, certain states may require that you ride your e-bike in certain areas.
Are electric bikes allowed on bike paths?
While the regulations may differ depending on your location, several states classify e-bikes as traditional bicycles, allowing them on bike paths and bike lanes. When bike lanes are unavailable, some states require that you ride your e-bike adjacent to the road, instead of inside the motor traffic.
