I have also Included a great handlebar bag. It has a simple to install mount system with all stainless steel hardware and a click release button to remove the bag in seconds. The bag has multiple compartments, a carrying strap, map holder and made of canvas.
The 2013 Phantom X2 model now has these upgrades over the
(I included the change and average cost for some of the
Avid BB7 front & rear disc
brakes ($150 brake set verus the Promax $90 brake set)
Avid HS1 rotors ($110 rotor set versus
the $60 Promax set)
SRAM X7 Gear System ($120 gear system versus
the Shimano $40 system)
8 Speed (versus 7 Speed for 2012)
DNP Epoch 11-28T Cogs (11T high gear for
increased pedal speed)
Velo Plush saddle (Upgraded PU Velo design
versus standard PVC Velo)
Alloy Lock Ring grips (alloy lock ring for
grips versus no lock rings)
Some other minor changes were a twist throttle instead of
a thumb, new kickstand design, new rear dropout stainless steel plates (easier
wheel removal), new paint system and new packaging.
2013 models also have a new battery mount system with
adjustable struts made of stainless steel and cromoly. The new shell design of
the battery itself is extremely strong and I prefer it much better over the
2012. The struts offer a new adjustable full support system.
Prodeco has the best ebike model line up in the industry
by far? They are Built in the USA and have a full 2 Year Front to Back
Warranty. I had very little issues with any of the bikes sold in 2012.
The Phantom X2 model is just an amazing ebike. The price
should easily be twice the $1499. There is nothing I know of on the market
outside of Prodeco Technologies that can touch the Phantom X or X2. The component
quality is at the top of the scale. For 2013, Prodeco did some great upgrades
as I mention above.
The SRAM gear system is by far superior to the Shimano. Typically,
a SRAM X5 system is comparable to the Shimano Deore system but the Phantoms
have X7 systems. The X7 is a grade up from the X5. If anyone knows bike parts,
the X7 would only be found on high performance expensive bikes. Most ebikes
today have baseline Shimano gear systems. The $1000 ebikes usually come with
Shimano’s low end base Tourney system while the $1500 bikes have the Altus or
Alivio system. The SRAM X7 would only be found on $2000-$3500 ebikes but
Prodeco installs it on their $1399 Phantom bike. This is an example of how
Prodeco takes it to the next level, utilizing only the highest level
There is a lot of buzz in the industry on the 2013
Prodeco Technologies bikes. There are no other bikes which can currently
compare. The quality is first class all the way and the component list is a
who’s who of all the best components in the bike industry. As far as materials,
only stainless steels, aluminum alloys, Magnesium and other high end materials
are used in the components the bikes are built of. The battery system is a 24
Cell Lithium Ion LiFePO4 system with the higher end Prismatic format cells.
These are not the 1 year 600 cycle Lithium Ion Manganese or Cobalt cells. The
LiFePO4 cells last many years and 2000 charge cycles. They do not deteriorate
over time like the other ebike batteries do.
The 36V 500W motor has strong low end torque. The
aluminum shell of the motor is attached to an Anodized aluminum rim with 12G
(50% stronger than 14G) 18-8 stainless steel spokes. The rim meets the road
with Continental Traffic tires. The Conti Traffic tires are easily the best
tire in their class. The Conti Traffic tires have an aggressive thread pattern,
yet they ride ultra-smooth on the concrete bike paths and at home and durable
for the trail paths. I don’t know of any other tire that can do both paths
equally the same. Prodeco did it right when they chose the Continental Traffic
tires for the Phantoms.
The bottom line is this bike along with all the other
Prodeco Technologies bikes are in a class by themselves. I cannot think of any
other company building bikes of this caliber for the price not only in the
world, never mind the USA. Yes, these bikes are built here in the USA. The
Prodeco manufacturing facility is about 20 miles from where I live. I go there
numerous times a month and they keep getting bigger. The company is moving to a
new facility closer to me and will have 8 production lines and from what I am
told, 6 X bigger than their current building. They are obviously doing something
right for the past 5 years.
Check out the manufacturer’s website: www.prodecotech.com but
please come back to me to buy it.
We will give excellent
service and we work so hard to have the best feedback and keeping all our
customers happy. Warranties can always be done directly through us if needed. I
am maintaining in stock many parts but with my direct contact through my rep at
Prodeco, I can make sure no part takes more than 24 hours to ship. I had very
little issues last year but if one arose, I took care of it quick.
Manufacturer’s description, features and specifications
A legend in the electric bicycle industry, the Phantom X2
is widely considered the most aggressive and affordable folding electric bike
on the market. Riders rave about the elite components and adjustability of this
black-and-red beauty. Beginning with the precise engineering of the SRAM drive

8-speed cassette provides the perfect gear ratio for your electric bike. The
Phantom X2 has a range of around 30-35 miles per charge thanks to the 38-volt,
12-amp hour advanced lithium ion battery (LiFePO4). The powerful 500-watt,
direct-drive motor mounted in the rear wheel will easily reach speeds of up to
20 mph and delivers 720 watts at peak. Just give a half-twist to the
“power-on-demand” propulsion throttle and away you go. Or, if you prefer, pedal
as you would on a regular bicycle for routine exercise. The 57-pound Phantom X2
also features a lightweight, aircraft-grade, aluminum alloy frame and a
shock-minimizing 120-mm ZXR magnesium suspension fork. The smooth and
responsive Avid BB7 disc brake system along with Avid 200-mm, HS1 heat-shedding
rotors are the best performing in their class. Offering more control, less
weight and minimal wear, the Avid HS1 will have you riding longer without fear
of the bike overheating. The Continental Traffic 26-inch tires will take you
from the city pavement to the mountain trails seamlessly. This high-end

Folding Frames -
Fabricated from aircraft grade aluminum, the G Plus Phantom X2’s frame is
designed for strength, portability, comfort, quality and longevity while
maintaining a unique style. An overlapping Heavy Duty adjustable folding
mechanism with an integrated safety latch assures the easy 15 second fold while
offering the strength of a rigid frame.
Ships Fully Assembled - The Phantom X2’s is shipped 98% assembled.
There is only 1 bolt to tighten when receiving the bicycle and pedal
installation. You will be up and riding in a few minutes. A full detailed USER
GUIDE with multiple photos is included. No additional tools are required.
USA Built - All Prodeco electric bicycles are designed,
assembled and quality controlled in the USA. Bicycles are produced on a daily
basis in Prodeco's Florida facility with no inventory being built older than 1 week
prior to shipping. This allows for all components including batteries to remain
100% fresh and the latest stock. Overseas quality control is not consistent and
the reason behind Prodeco’s reasoning for building the Phantom X2 in the USA.
2 Year Front to Back
Warranty - A full part replacement EZ warranty remains
in effect for 2 years from the date of purchase. If any component fails during
this time, it will be replaced for a new component. EZ warranty replacement
includes full motor wheel replacement. If for any reason your motor fails
during the first 2 years, Prodeco will replace the complete wheel including rim
and spokes. The new wheel will ship fully balanced and with the Motor’s easy
disconnect; only a few minutes is required for removal and installation.
LiFePO4 batteries are fully warranted for 2 years with no prorating. If your
battery fails on month 23, a new LiFePO4 battery will be shipped.
Rust and Corrosion
Resistant - The outdoor environment is a bike’s worst
enemy. The Phantom X2 utilizes aluminum alloys, stainless steels and cromoly
for 96% of all components and hardware. Prodeco understands the importance of
year after year use, and an owner’s need for their bike to remain rust and
corrosion free with continued performance and good looks. Small attention to
details such as an alloy cap headset, alloy chain guard and stainless steel
spokes have been implemented throughout the bicycle.
Satin Black Finish - The Phantom X2’s features a Flat Black
Finish coated with Satin clear paint. The decals are placed under the clear as
not to scratch or peel. All major components are either polished black or
sandblasted black and anodized for protection.
LiFePO4 Li-ion Battery
Systems - Manganese and Cobalt have been the main
choice in Lithium cathode material used for the lithium electric bicycle market
over the past 3-4 years. The discounted cost of these batteries comes with low
life expectancy. Most are supposed to last 600-700 cycles but the majority of
them start failing prior due to heat, storage and vibration issues. LiFePO4,
the latest lithium technology increases the cycle life to 2000 plus at a
minimal higher cost. Besides 3 X available charge cycles, the LiFePO4 system is
highly more stable, can charge at higher amps and does not deteriorate with
heat or storage unlike the majority of the other current ebike lithium
Throttle Powered - The motor is controlled via a variable
throttle. Throttling permits riders to pedal when they prefer and establish
assist according to their requirements, i.e (steep hill, no pedaling effort,
bad knee, etc...). A light twist of the throttle produces a slow and soft ride
while fully twisting the throttle generates a quick and exhilarating ride.
Quick Disconnect 500W
Motor - The Prodeco 500W direct drive HUB motor
offers high performance and high torque. 500 watts is sufficient to allow a
rider to power up inclines with 750W (1 HP) available at peak. With electric
bicycles, the marriage of the motor, controller and battery is crucial in
offering a decent range per charge cycle. The 500W motor also incorporates
Prodeco’s quick weatherproof disconnect directly at the motor, tire or tube
changes are no longer an issue when comparing to other electric bikes. The
connector located within a few inches from the motor allows for a two-second
disconnect and the motorized wheel can be easily removed hassle free.
Controllers - Electric bicycle controllers are the brain
to the functions of an ebike. The Phantom X2’s controller is a maintenance free
sealed unit. If the controller ever has an issue, it can be changed within a
few minutes due to the Phantom X2’s use of a wire harness and simplified
connectors. Issue proof connectors allow for connecting or disconnecting the
controller in a matter of seconds.
Suspension Fork -
The ZXR is made of high strength lightweight Magnesium for superior strength.
They incorporate HARD ANODIZED aluminum stanchions for durable, long lasting,
weather resistant performance while reducing weight. DUAL pre-load adjust firms
up or softens the 120mm space of travel. Built for a superior ride and handling
the rigors of daily use.
Headsets - The Phantom X2 uses an upper and lower cartridge
bearing headset with a sealed aluminum alloy cap for high strength, years of
issue free performance, and zero rust.
Sealed Bearing Bottom
Brackets - To maintain the concept of no maintenance,
the Mariner Sport utilizes Prodeco’s maintenance-free sealed cartridge bearing
system for the bottom bracket. Prodeco’s bottom bracket contains an
axle/spindle made of cromoly for higher strength and resistance to rust and
spins freely on dual maintenance free sealed bearings. A standard 68/73 BSA ENG
measurement is used.
SRAM X7 8 Speed Gear
System - The versatile, highly capable X7 product
family brings high-end precision and reliability with unmatched performance in
class. Unbeatable X-Glide shifting and race-bred technologies boost your
confidence in all types of terrain. A nice plus is the 8 Speed gear selection
versus the industry’s typical 6 or 7.
Alloy Chain Guard - Chain Guards on the Phantom X2 are aluminum
alloy and not the plastic or steel found on most bikes, they will not rust and
KMC X8.93 Chain - KMC’s X8.93 chain incorporates extra
stretch proof mushroomed pin enhancement for durability. Finished in two tone
with links in bright nickel plated plates separated by gray plates. The X8.93
offers these added benefits: Double “X” Bridge Shape Outer Plate (excellent
gear shifting), Bushingless Construction (smooth transmission), StretchProof
Treatment (SP exceptional durability), Noiseless Function (noise reduction),
Mushroomed Riveting (high pin power) and Inner Plate Chamfering (expeditious
Braking System - Avid’s BB7 ball bearing disc brakes have been a
favorite among riders who want control, durability, dependability and
piece-of-cake adjusting. BB7’s inboard and outboard pad adjustment knobs make
quick work out of setting the perfect distance between the pads and rotor, as
well as adjusting for pad wear. With gobs of beautifully modulated power and
intuitive easy-to-use adjustability, the BB7s set the standard in the realm of
mechanical disc brakes. Many ebikes offer only a front disc brake while all
Prodeco 26” bikes have front and rear disc brakes.
12G Stainless Steel
Spokes - Stainless Steel 18-8 12G spokes are thicker
and up to 100% stronger than the typical 14G spokes found on most traditional
bicycles. The added strength will offer years of issue-free performance while sacrificing
minimally in weight savings. Stainless steel is used for its natural resistance
to rust and high strength and anodized in Black for a dramatic and sporty look.
Wide Profile Triple
Box Rims - The 3
boxes of aluminum walls offer advanced strength and flexing is almost
non-existent when combined with Prodeco’s 12G stainless steel spokes. Balanced
and trued wheels remain balanced and trued. At 32mm wide, they are pronounced
in size but give hint to the strength they bear and a perfect match for the
"All Terrain" 2.1" wide Continental Traffic tires. Besides
durability, these rims have a high grade anodized black finish over the
aircraft grade aluminum alloy and include stainless steel eyelets.
Continental Traffic Low
Resistance Tires - A 3 ply 84 thread per inch tire for
daily use in the city or country. The center rib tread ensures a smooth and
comfortable ride on the street. The exceptionally strong sidewall can cope
easily with everyday stress. Aggressive look with fast onroad performance. One
of the first of its kind.
Quick Release Front
Axle - The Quick Release “QR” axle offers a “tool
free” 30-second front wheel removal for flats, service or as a theft deterrent.
With the quick removal of the front axle, the bike will no longer be able to be
ridden and tire or tube changes are a breeze.
Adjustable 31.8 Stem - Riders come in all sizes and riding
positions vary in comfort for each rider. With the Phantom X2’s adjustable
handlebar stem, the perfect position is easily found with a quick adjustment
whether wanting the bar high and close or low and forward. The stem is not only
capable of adjusting degree of angle from front to back but also for quill
height. The stem additionally allows for condensing of the handlebar for
storing, transporting or shipping.
Folding Aluminum &
Nylon Pedals -
High quality double bearing folding pedals are included with all Phantom X2s.
The pedals use an aluminum body with a nylon cage floating on double bearings
over a cromoly spindle. No plastic folding pedals here!
Frame Mounts - The Phantom X2 has incorporated frame
mounts for water bottles and fenders. The traditional sized mounts are welded
directly to or through the frame. Stainless Steel hex bolts are included.
Braided Housings &
Stainless Steel Cables -
Braided and Lined housings with stainless steel cables are an added layer of
protection and durability. All housings are lined for the smoothest braking
while inner stainless steel cables allow for rust and corrosion resistance. The
addition of the braided layer not only increases the strength of the cable housing
but adds an attractive detail typically reserved for only custom built
