I thought the CCX had 25A controller??The controller for the CCS/CCS2/CCX is exactly the same so my theory is that they all have the same power. If you have a 52V battery you have nominally 4V more voltage so 80-100 extra watts on any of the bikes. There is an over boost feature that has been around since the original Cross Current which tends to confuse the issue (20A nominal versus 25A overboost for short periods of time.)
When ordering, please input your Bike Model and Battery Volt (for example RipCurrent S 52V, or CrossCurrent Air 48V) into the order notes. - Direct plug-in compatible (impossible to incorrectly plug in the cables)- Fully potted internal enclosure works underwater- XT60 Power Connectors for a...www.juicedbikes.com
I thought the CCX had 25A controller??
Do CCS and CCX have identical controller?
I know the CCX display has "R" mode, is that and "overboost" mode for short periods of time that you're talking about?
If so, for how long?
If you zoom in on the label of the controller it says 20A nominal. That’s the maximum continuous power that the controller can sustain. That’s the controller Juiced Bikes lists as compatible with the CCS/CCS2/CCX and we have seen confirmation that is the controller installed in the CCX from the factory. The 25A is the overboost feature which gives you temporary overboost. The original Cross Current had this feature as well (13A nominal and would overboost to 16A.) R mode just removes the speed limitation and allows you to get max power regardless of speed. Pretty sure the CCS2 now comes with the same display as the CCX and gives you R mode.
Like I said this is just a theory of mine. Someone with a CCX/CCS2 can put the bike in R mode and see how many watts the bike will sustain continuously on the display (and not just for a few seconds). If it were really able to CONTINUOUSLY sustain 25A that’s around 1300-1400 watts on a fully charged battery figuring around a 4-5V sag.
yeah CCS is 10A nominal.It’s been a couple of years since I installed the 20A controller in my Cross Current but if you substitute “limit” for “nominal” in my previous posts everything else is accurate. Limit current being the maximum continuous current the controller will sustain. If it were really a 25A continuous controller it would be listed there. Again, it would be pretty easy for someone with a CCX to test out in the wild. Go find a long hill and put it on R mode. If it were able to sustain 25A, for more than short periods of time, you would see the corresponding watts (1300-1400W) reflected on the display.
