Built with premium materials and technology, there’s no denying the power and performance of the Outlaw’s 750-watt motor. The direct-drive rear hub motor allows riders to power up inclines with 1,200 watts (1.6 HP) available at peak. The pearl metallic finish changes hue in sunlight from various viewing angles. An outstanding all-around e-bike, the Outlaw SE comes equipped with a high-strength double-crown DH magnesium suspension fork,SRAM 8-speed X9/XO drive train, high-powered Avid Elixir 5 hydraulic disc brakes, and high-traction Continental Trail King 26 x 2.4 tires. Designed for strength from aircraft-grade aluminum, the Outlaw frame is rigid by design for a more aggressive cycling experience. The leather grips and Velo Plush saddle not only add style, they ensure maximum comfort for the ultimate riding experience. The Outlaw SE marks the union of style and over-the-top performance, all in one incredible electric bike.

My first experience with e-bikes was about 7 years ago. I liked the concept & feel of the hybrid, but wasn't enthralled with the heavy, finicky lead acid battery, which died after a few winter months of use. Neither was I that impressed with the front drive 36v 400watt motor, whose shortcomings were quickly realized on the steep hills I have to deal with on my commute. These, combined with the cost to buy into the new, expensive, and sometimes unstable lithium battery technology caused me to shelve the project until a company arrived on the scene to put out a well-designed and affordable machine.
I watched Prodeco for a couple of years, and almost bought a Phantom X2, but bided my time until the Outlaw series appeared. With the Outlaw EX, I can leave for work and do the full 10 miles in about 45 minutes. This is shockingly fast for a convoluted commute that's full of moderate to steep hills, stop signs, and traffic lights.
Though I looked at the faster Outlaw model, I chose the EX because its 20mph limit would force me to conserve the battery without compromising the power I needed to sail up the hills I mentioned earlier, and sail up them I do. I'm going at least 16+ mph up a 12-15% grade when I pedal with the motor! One quickly learns by the sound of the battery, how much assistance to provide for a longer range. Give just the right amount, and you'll hardly know the motor's there, but for the sensation of having a gale force tailwind. I still put considerable physical effort into my commute, which is my nature, but I get to work (MUCH), faster with the EX than I would otherwise. As for the battery range; I leave in the morning fully charged, and the throttle (and) battery indicator are still in the green when I get to work. I'm pretty sure I'd have no trouble getting home without topping off the battery, but I do so nevertheless, in hopes that this will extend its life. In this vein, I also swapped out the Trail King tires that come with the EX for wide, smooth, Kevlar belted, commuter tires, which lowers my rolling resistance, and makes the bike even faster. On a side note, if you plan to do any riding in the rain, buy and install a front fender, or wish you had. This is the one I put on.

Much has been made of the build & parts quality of the Outlaw and with good reason; it is in fact a beautifully outfitted, well-designed, and well-made machine. The drive train is the same one I installed on my "beater" bike, and I've had no trouble with SRAM X9 in 3 years of daily, all weather commuting. In fact, SRAM X9 is the most precise & reliable shifting system I've ever used, and I've used some of the very best. The Avid Elixir brakes on the Outlaw are simply top shelf as well. They stop the 300lb+ load smoothly and predictably every time.
All this to say, the Outlaw EX isn't a bike for a weaker person to lug up stairs each morning. It's a sturdy but heavy beast. I'm a pretty big guy at 230lbs, and it will take me (slowly) up a moderate incline without any effort on my part, but it clearly stresses the motor & battery. You know the sensation you get riding with a person who doesn't really know how to drive a manual clutch, and they lug the engine mercilessly? Bingo! Still, once you get in synch with the battery, this machine is a fast and graceful ride.
The only negatives I can think of with the bike, is that changing a tire is more of an ordeal because of having to loosen 2 allen screws per dropout, and removing one of the big hub allens (front wheel) or large bolt (rear wheel) before moving on to the next step. It has a hollow core axel that you have to tap out afterwards in order to remove the wheel. The tolerances of those are so incredibly tight; they're a bit of a pain to get back in. This is nevertheless the safest manner of holding the wheels, and the same method used for motorcycles.
The other issue I experienced is the quirky key & battery removal process. I had trouble getting the battery slid into place such that I could engage the ignition, but this turned out to be user error. One of the helpful staff at Prodeco told me that I was pushing it in a bit too hard and that one need only hold & gently turn the ignition key, while easing the battery into place to lock it in and energize. I've had no trouble since.
The last critique I have with the machine, and this is due to its very strong & rigid construction, is that even with fat tires, it'll beat you hard on rough pavement if you don't opt for the suspension seat post. Prodeco offers one of these free of charge, and I'd advise you to get it. Another item to consider is a spring suspension seat, because even with the suspended post, you'll still take the occasional jarring hit. I bought this one from Brooks Saddles, and believe me, this improves the ride enormously.
I've only had the EX since May 2013, so I can't speak to the longevity of the battery, but I can say without reservation, that this is a wonderful, sturdy, fun to ride machine that should last for many years if it holds up like my old commuter bike, and I've no reason to suspect it won't. I'll be crossing my fingers that the battery lives up to its specs...
Well done Prodeco!
It is important to do business with good firms, and ElectricBikeToGo is amazing. Extremely responsive. Stand behind their product. I had an issue with the fuse and they were fantastic in getting me back on the road. I am truly pleased.
