Beach cruisers today are exploding in popularity. However, interestingly enough, they have been around for about 100 years! These days, with the rise in popularity with electric bicycles, electric beach cruisers are popular as well. 
In 2014, Big Cat introduced an electric beach cruiser bicycle: The Long Beach Cruiser. This electric bike is a Premium Entry Level Offering and has gone through a gradual upgrade of its components to give riders an even better electric bike experience.

Today, Big Cat is proud to introduce the new 2018 Big Cat Long Beach Cruiser 500. While still maintaining its sleek and stylish look that riders love, the 2018 LBC is introducing new features to the Big Cat e-bike lineup that will take your riding to the next level.

New for 2018, the LBC electric bicycle is equipped with a 48V12Ah Removable lithium-ion battery, while still maintaining its strong and efficient 500W geared rear hub motor. On this beach cruiser, you'll be sure to get an average of 15-30 miles on a single charge! If it's speed you're after, we have that covered! These electric bicycles can reach speeds of up to 20 mph at the twist of a throttle, allowing you to get to your destination faster without breaking a sweat! Ride confidently with the upgraded 2.3" wheel and tire combo which gives riders a sturdier feel and overall control of the bicycle.

One of the most important features on the new 2018 LBC is the Pedal Assist function. This latest edition beach cruiser e-bike still offers both pedal assist and throttle functions, however, the new pedal assist function gives riders the ability to choose between 1-5 levels of pedal assist which control the amount or propulsion you get from the motor. Set it to the highest level for effortless riding, or if you're seeking a workout and want to save some of your battery's life, set the bike to a lower setting.

The LCD pedal assist controller is a Premium option which gives users the ability to choose between 1 and 5 levels of pedal assist; it also displays the power of the unit, the speed readout, distance, and the e-bike's current battery life.

All-Big Cat Long Beach Cruiser models are equipped with a standard King Meter KM-529 LCD Display.
