the self-sufficient, financially sound manufacturer of extremely sophisticated and cutting-edge e-bikes, has unveiled its first all-road model, which makes it easier for riders to leave the cobblestoned city streets behind and head for more scenic areas.

Cowboy’s new Cross e-bike has suspension systems integrated into the front fork and seat post to absorb road bumps, and it has larger 60mm tires to achieve so. Moreover, it has a huge 540Wh detachable battery for a maximum range of 120km (75 miles), grippier pedals to prevent foot slippage when bouncing around, and an integrated rear rack to carry additional gear.

tested the Cross e-bike for a while on a range of terrain, and it is undoubtedly a beast in every sense of the word. First off, Cowboy hopes to extend the luxurious seat suspension to the rest of its fleet. On pavement, packed dirt, and gravel, this (very) heavy e-bike felt incredibly solid thanks to the larger tires and inverted front fork suspension.

these motorcycles also look fantastic. The three new earthy-hued metallic satin paint colors are a calm shade of gray, a gorgeous mossy green, and a “mushroom” tint that seemed to shift in color with the changing light from a dirty silver to a muted purple to a rusty champagne gold. As it splits around the battery, the top tube on the step-over frame also produces an intriguing floating effect.

Other than that, this pedal-assisted e-bike from Cowboy is powered by a 250W rear-hub adaptive power motor that is belt-driven and has an EU maximum speed of 25 km/h. It is offered in both a step-over and step-through chassis.

Cross is also Cowboy’s first e-bike to have a new Check My Bike self-diagnostic tool that lets the firm automatically monitor the health of its rolling computers with the purpose of keeping riders on the road longer. Additionally, the business is gamifying the app with a new Live Challenges feature, which it claims will provide for “the most fun and engaging ride experience.” Yes.

All of these capabilities join a number other tech flourishes Cowboy is known for, such collision detection, theft detection, and a fantastic custom software with integrated Google Maps navigation that also makes scheduling service a snap.

Cross is priced by Cowboy at €3,499 (about $3,800) at launch and then goes up to €3,999. Today is the first day of sales.
