Sorry "86..." I'd have to disagree on the difference in performance between the NEO Carbon and the Nitro Cross. I rode the Carbon for over a year before getting my Nitro Cross sample, and there is no comparison. The difference between PAS modes on the Nitro is significant and VERY noticeable. Add to that a 6 mph increase in top end and a 500w motor that gets you there MUCH quicker, game over.Interesting.....I rode a Nitro Cross and compared with my Neo Carbon. The difference was negligible. Certainly not enough to warrant spending money.
I'd encourage anyone to do a side-by-side comparison, impressive to say the least. The only thing you give up is range. In my opinion, the Nitro is as fast as you should ever want/or need to do on an ebike, and not for the poorly skilled or faint of heart.
