New York-based Wing Bikes has launched the Freedom X, an update to the company’s e-bike lineup that offers fancy e-bike styling at non-fancy prices. Starting at $1,248 (with the promo code TAKE200), the new Wing Freedom X e-bike retains a similar frame style to the previous generation with an over-length top tube that extends fore and aft of the main triangle. The top tube embeds the head and tail light directly into the frame. Something that is becoming a trend.

In addition to the interesting frame design, the 20 mph (32 km/h) bike now comes with extra features like an integrated torque sensor to provide smoother pedal assist as well as a display built right into the handle bar stem.
The battery has also been swapped from a frame-mounted to a frame-integrated battery, hiding away the bulky power pack. Between the integrated battery and display, the Wing Freedom X almost looks like a standard bicycle instead of an e-bike. The only major clue to the bike’s assisted nature is the 550W Bafang hub motor in the rear wheel.

A throttle is an optional accessory, converting the bike from a Class 1 to a Class 2 e-bike in the US. If you’re thinking this frame design looks familiar, you’re right. We’d be remiss if we didn’t point out that Wing’s bikes are something of a bike-alike to VanMoof’s pricier European e-bikes. The Wing Freedom X include a built-in security system to keep someone from walking away with the relatively lightweight 39 lb (17.7 kg e-bike).

interesting design but I don't know if I would like that battery.. I'd rather have something more universal and replaceable. But that's just me

That top tube looks like a rocket launcher. Maybe has a future use by the police, instead of manually slamming their bikes on protestors lying on the ground.

initially I thought that's where the battery was, but because it's going through the seatpost maybe not.
