Super73 has announced their new e-bike called the K1D, designed specifically for young riders aged 4-8 years old. The K1D is part of Super73’s Adventure Series, which is aimed at providing kids with a fun and exciting way to explore their surroundings.

With a top speed of 16mph, the K1D is really a much-awaited adventure e-bike for kids! Both safe and exhilarating, offering young riders the opportunity to experience the thrill of e-biking while still maintaining control.

Super73’s first LFP e-bike user

Super73’s K1D represents a major breakthrough in the company’s own e-bike lineup. Unlike many other e-bike manufacturers that use traditional lithium-ion batteries, Super73 has opted for a 92.8Wh lithium iron phosphate battery (LFP) in the K1D model.

This innovative battery technology offers a number of advantages, including enhanced safety and longer-lasting performance. Compared to traditional lithium-ion batteries, LFP batteries are less prone to overheating, which can lead to fires and other safety hazards.

With regenerative braking and throttle technology, the K1D delivers up to 60 minutes of ride time on just a 45-minute charge, which is pretty decent for an e-bike for kids!

Style and Design

K1D e-bike is designed with young riders in mind, featuring a long moto-style seat that provides freedom of movement in a variety of riding situations. The saddle is also adaptable to accommodate growth and riders of different sizes.

In addition, the K1D comes standard with platforms, which are perfect for young riders who are just starting out and need a stable surface to stand on while riding. These platforms can be easily swapped out for pegs later on, as riders become more comfortable and confident on their bikes.

Ride Modes

Super73 unveiled that the new K1D has features that make it a good choice for young riders who crave adventure and excitement. 

With multiple ride modes, the K1D can be customized to suit the needs and abilities of riders at different skill levels. 

  • Mode 1 is perfect for new riders, with a top speed of 7 mph
  • Mode 2 can reach speeds up to 13 mph

The rider can easily change the lower two modes, giving them greater control over their experience. 

For more experienced riders;

  • Mode 3 can reach speeds of up to 16+ mph, providing a thrilling ride that’s sure to get the adrenaline pumping!

The K1D also features a locked “Track Mode,” for its 3rd mode, which is meant to be unlocked by parents for use on a closed course. Parents can easily unlock this mode by holding the appropriate buttons for the correct amount of time, allowing kids to test their skills and push the limits of their e-bike in a safe environment. 

And with a convenient removable battery,  riders can extend their adventures and easily swap out batteries for even more riding time.

Conclusion

While the Super73 K1D e-bike sounds promising with its innovative features and design, it’s important to note that not all data and specifications have been revealed by the company. As such, it’s difficult to say for sure whether the K1D will be one of the best e-bikes for kids on the market. 

However, preorders are now available at a reasonable price of $1,295 with delivery in early June 2023. You can also check these top e-bikes priced under $1,000 if you’re looking for a more affordable one. Let’s wait for the official launch to see how this e-bike performs in real-world conditions.
