What Makes the Newport Step-Thru 2 Unique?The Newport Step-Thru 2 has many features in common with the original Step-Thru model. The beach cruiser uses a 500 watt brushless geared hub motor to power a 7-speed shimano derailleur gear system. Typically the bike uses a 48V 10Ah lithium-ion battery, but you can upgrade to a 13Ah battery when ordering. Increasing the amp hour means you can cover more miles before the next recharge session. What makes the Step-Thru 2 stand out are structural changes. Thicker tires and wider rims increase the surface area and thus improve tire traction, while a longer frame more evenly distributes weight and stress. A lower top bar of the frame makes it easier to mount the Step-Thru 2. With overall frame changes that contribute to safety and comfort, it is no surprise the Newport Step-Thru 2 is a popular option for the summer.
How Does the Cruiser Ride?You can choose between 13Ah and 10Ah battery types and browse bike colors including black, blue and white. But what to expect once you climb aboard and start pedaling along with beach? Whether on the full, normal or eco power level mode, you can expect a smooth ride reaching top speeds of 23 mph at any time of the day. If necessary, it is possible to override the 5-level pedal assist with a manual thumb throttle. An additional safety feature includes the front and rear tektro hydraulic disc brakes. Use the backlit LCD display to monitor your speed, distance and battery range.
As a beach cruiser, the Newport Step-Thru 2 is a stylish bike that incorporates cruising-specific structural features. The longer frame and larger wheels distinguish this comfortable beach cruiser from city bikes and mountain bikes.
