The Euphree City Robin X is the updated version of the previously available City Robin. We got the chance to ride the updated bike and are happy to see it keeps all of the original’s great features.
It is a stylish bike that is most at home on city streets or paths. It’s designed as an ideal commuter bike with a focus on comfort. Euphree prides itself on great US-basewd customer support and has been making upgrades based on customer feedback. For the City Robin X, they made a huge upgrade to the headlight, refined the motor and acceleration curve, improved their cable management, and added an integrated cell phone mount.
The Euphree City Robin X has a small price increase but remains a very reasonably priced bike at $2,099. As always, if you decide to buy this ebike please use our code “ebikescape”. You get a free lock (be sure to add it to your cart first!) and it’s an easy way to support Ebike Escape so we can continue to review ebikes for you.

Euphree City Robin X Video Review
You can also check out our full review of the predecessor, of the City Robin here. This includes a walk around, riding footage, and a hill climb test.
A Stylish Frame
The frame on the Euphree Robin City X has remained the same as the original for good reason. It has a beautiful and sophisticated design. The frame is built for comfort and is perfect for an urban commute. It has a step-through design making it easier to get on and off. I love that the stem is adjustable, allowing the handlebar position to be customizable to find the perfect riding position.
The beautifully chosen frame colors include Emerald Green, Rebel Blue, Midnight Black, and Pearl White. The standover height is only 16″ and the frame size is advertised to fit riders ranging from 5’3″ to 6’4″. The bike weighs 58lbs plus another 7-8 pounds for the battery. The payload capacity is 275 lbs.
Not sure if you are tall enough for this bike? Give their USA-based team a call. The company focuses on customer service and can be helpful in making recommendations. One adjustment they can make is to remove the suspension seatpost to allow shorter riders to feel more at ease.
Full Suspension for Increased Comfort
The combination of the front fork suspension and the suspension seatpost makes this a full-suspension bike allowing for a comfortable ride even on a bumpy road. In the front, there is an SR Suntour front suspension fork. It has 100 mm of travel. The rear suspension is an SR Suntour NCX suspension seat post. We are huge fans of this accessory and often recommend it as an upgrade (around $110) but with the Euphree City Robin X it comes standard. Check out our video review of the suspension seat post for a closer look.
Euphree City Robin X Battery and Motor
The City Robin X features a brushless Bafang rear hub motor with 500-watt sustained and 900-watt peak power. It has a 48v 14Ah battery for a total of 672 watt-hours. It comes with a 2-amp charger that allows you to charge the battery both on and off the bike. The estimated range from the company is 48-60 miles in ideal conditions. Range of course is highly dependent on a variety of factors. On our real-world range test included a lot more hills and the bike got 34.7 miles.
The LCD is colored and backlit. It is smaller than some but that gives more space for other accessories to attach to the ebike. The screen can be hard to see depending on the sun. On the display, you can see the current speed, battery percentage, pedal assist level, and odometer. We always like seeing the battery in a percentage instead of simply a bar as it gives a more accurate idea of the battery life remaining. If you hit the power button you can see the trip odometer and the time.
If you go into the advanced settings you can adjust settings such as screen brightness. There are 5 levels of pedal assist that engage with a cadence sensor. The top speed of the bike is 25-26 mph while pedaling. There is a throttle if you prefer that will take you up to 20 mph. Watch our video review of the Original City Robin (not the X) for more details.
City Robin X Components
The Euphree City Robin Ebike boasts a 7-speed Microshift derailleur with a thumb shifter. In the rear, it has a 14-28 tooth freewheel. In the front is a 42T double-sided chain ring.
Brakes are Tektro hydraulic disc brakes with 180 mm front and rear rotors. The hydraulic brakes are a step up from the mechanical disc brakes and this is an expected upgrade at this price point. In our testing, the brakes perform very well and are easy to trust. There is a motor cut-off switch on the brakes which cuts power to the motor when braking.
The tires are Kenda 27.5″ x 2.2″ with a hybrid city/gravel tread. While this bike is most at home in the city, it will hold up to crushed gravel or some light off-roading. We love that this increases the versatility of the bike. There is an option to upgrade to Tannus tire liners. These are 15mm inserts that go inside the tire to help prevent punctures. The nice thing is that if you order liners as part of your order, Euphree will install them for you so when you get the bike it’s ready to go.
One great new accessory Euphree has added to the Robin City X is the integrated phone mount. The SP Connect connector is pre-installed but you will need to purchase a specific phone case or the universal SP Connect mount. When you place your phone into the case, it attaches firmly front and center for easy viewing. This is especially helpful if you need your GPS, track your rides or use a map app up and running.
Lights is another area that Euphree made some updates to between the original City Robin and the City Robin X. They now have an included front headlight with dual beam technology to illuminate not just in front of you but also beneath you. The front light is rated at 100 LUX. There is an integrated rear light as well.
The Euphree Robin City X stayed with its full metal fenders which is nice if you find yourself riding through puddles.
The pedals are Wellgo branded platform pedals with rubber grips that have side reflectors, perfect for the city. The seat is pretty standard. If you’d like to upgrade right away, Euphree offers a wide comfort saddle for $58. If you’re looking for other seat suggestions or more ways to customize your ebike check out our list of favorite accessories here.
This is a dream bike for a city rider as it is designed to maximize comfort. The step-through frame, the swept-back handlebars, and the adjustable stem all tie together to give each rider the best positioning possible. The full suspension will smooth out bumps providing an even more comfortable ride.
The City Robin is a great value at $2,099 when you factor in the comfortable frame and features in addition to the Tekro hydraulic disc brakes. The metal fenders will help keep you dry and the sturdy rear rack is perfect for commuting, grocery getting, or even adding a child seat.

You can schedule a virtual demo or you can take advantage of their chat or phone support.
