Blix Ultra: New All-Terrain e-Fat Bike adds modular accessories for heavy loads or passengers

Blix just announced the Ultra, a new all-terrain fat tire e-bike designed for on- and off-road riding. The Santa Cruz-based bike manufacturer has primarily focused on cruisers and cargo-haulers until now. The Ultra seeks to shake that up as Blix officially enters the off-road adventure bike market.

Versatility

The dual-purpose Blix Ultra comes with a modular design with plenty of practical utility features. For example, its loading capacity can carry up to 200lbs. That’s 150lbs in the rear and 50lbs in the front. That’s what we call some junk in the trunk!

Ultra also includes a lengthy list of high-performance specs. It features a solid 750w rear hub motor with 90Nm torque, making it one of the most powerful hub motors available.

It also has dual batteries, offering a ride range of up to 80 miles per charge, thanks to its 1,344Wh capacity. And it has a top cruising speed of 28 mph, a 5-level pedal assist, and an easy-to-manage throttle.

The Blix Ultra is also equipped with hydraulic disc brakes, front suspension, and large 4″ tires to carry the rider and cargo through whatever terrain they seek to ride.

Opt for a single 672-Wh or dual batteries for 1.3 kW for up to 80 miles of riding per charge.

“The Ultra concept was to design an all-terrain e-bike that is practical enough to fit into your day, furthering our mission to integrate health and activity into everyday life,” says Blix founder and CEO Pontus Malmberg. “This is the most capable and versatile e-bike we’ve built, and it will bring a lot of value and differentiation to the table.”

Connectivity

Also central to the Ultra is its connectivity to Blix Connect. This platform is built on the Blix app and is accessible by Bluetooth. It helps complement riders’ experience by providing access to numerous features. Some of these include; ride data, community connectivity, and over-the-air firmware updates when needed.
