You will not find specs like this in ANY bike under 3k (including a standard pedal bike). With an Eagle 12 group set, a Carbon Fiber Frame, ROCKSHOX top end suspension, GUIDE hydraulic brakes, and MAXXIS tires, this bike will outperform similar OEM rivals with twice the price tag.
Our goal since the beginning was to create an “affordable” full-suspension bike that was worthy of the Luna name, and was loaded with top notch components. Unlike our other flagship carbon bikes, this is one of the few bikes we have chosen not to build in the USA, and we will be upfront and honest about this move. Instead, we have teamed up with an incredible parts supplier to obtain never-before-seen pricing on a top notch carbon frame, and top notch components to match, which we have full confidence will fulfill the expectations of the most seasoned eBike riders.
Additionally, we wanted to build a somewhat “stealthy” bike that would allow those who wish to blend in with other casual riders, and carry an OEM fit and finish. Do not let this special introductory price mislead you, this bike should normally cost well over $5000. Selling direct to the consumer and buying large quantities allows us to offer pricing well below the competition, in addition to a special pre-order price that will be increased once bikes are on the shelf. We are only offering a limited number of pre-sale bikes at this price, so buy it now while the buying is good. Because you are buying from Luna you can trust you will be getting a bike in a class of its own. Not only have we been very selective over what bike we have chosen to put our name on, we also perform all final assembly and quality control in our California facility.
It is Luna's 4 year anniversary on the 4th of July. This is our giveback to the community and our gratitude that our customer base put us in the position to do production bikes we always dreamed of. $3490 dollars is a crazy price for this bike but its for limited time. There are a few reasons for this price. We do not use dealers and sell to you direct. We buy in bulk components and we get crazy OEM pricing. Also this is a pre-order price. We plan to ship the bikes starting early August so you are helping us achieve this and getting this amazing bike at an amazing price. This is a critical time of year for us and we need cash flow to keep up with all our other products that are selling out. For a limited time and with a limited quantity we are offering the best deal ever on a full Enduro bike. Once we have the bike in stock the price will go to over $4000.
You will not find this spec of ebike for even close to the $4000 price, at $3490 it is an absolute steal. Dealers can buy this bike at this cost and still make a profit. We are doing this special pre-sale price which is a win win for our customers, smaller dealers, and Luna who normally could not afford such an outlay and still keep up with other inventory in summer.
Real estate is your most valuable commodity in an ebike. Big and powerful is easy but small, lightweight, and powerful is a gigantic feat. The M600 is the newest offering from Bafang, designed for integration with production bikes. Luna has worked with prototypes of this drive for 2 years with improvements on this drive and with Luna's own proprietary touches to make it smooth, powerful and most importantly, reliable.
Weighing in at only 7 pounds, it still smashes other tiny drives on the market while retaining stealth. While most other production bikes on the market are 250 watt Euro spec bikes with no throttle and no real power. With most limits in the USA set at 750 watts, this drive is perfectly suited for our market, allowing it to be used on most Class-1 trails legally with non-Ludicrous mode. Quiet power, combined with an integrated DSAHS system, and a torque-sensing drive system to top it off. The bike senses how much effort you are inputting via the pedals, and increases the motor output to match. Even with this setup, there are 5 levels of torque sensitivity and power output. Lastly, for non-Ludicrous equipped bikes, a manual throttle for when you’re worn out and tired of pedaling.
The 28 to 1 gear reduction using one of the most advanced gear reductions in the industry is not only quiet (for an all metal gearbox), but now with steel gears it is also reliable. The importance of gear reduction in a bike like this is not only does the motor spin at its most optimum efficiency level, (electric motors love to spin fast) the gear reduction has the final sprocket spinning slow enough so that you actually get pedal cadence at high power, a very hard thing to accomplish on a high power drive.
When you buy from Luna, know we are one of Bafang’s largest dealers and one of the few who keep a full line up of replacement parts on all the drives we sell. Bafang systems are generally very reliable and if a part breaks they are very easy to service. We provide many instructions for how to swap parts in our knowledge base: https://electricbike.com/forum/
If you do fry any parts, we will have a full stock of replacement motor parts that are easy to swap out in case something does break. Parts are covered for a 6 month warranty but again, use common sense about being in the right gear etc. when riding, especially in Ludicrous mode. At the least, you will have more confidence knowing parts are always easily swappable in the unlikely event something does break.
As most Luna fans know, Luna has been hot-rodding Bafang motors for years with great success. Because of improvements we make in cooling (for example motor and controller cooling air vents) and changing certain parts, we think the ludicrous controllers are more reliable than the stock controller. However the Bafang M600 is a lightweight, tiny and sexy motor and we know running 2000 watts continuous can break things if you ride in the wrong gear up long hills or lean on the throttle too hard. We also know that in pedal-assist only applications there is no issues feeding 40 amps to this controller. Many new eBike riders tend to start out too hard in the wrong gear which is hard on the motor, controller and gear reduction. That being said this motor and controller have thermal overload protections that other Bafang drives did not have which makes it more reliable even for the less experienced riders.
The reason we do this is to run at high power with a more powerful drive like this, it is really necessary not to pin the the throttle in the wrong gear, by pedalling you naturally will get a good idea what the right gear is and not abuse your drive line by full throttling in the wrong gear. Also please note if you select higher power option your range will be reduced, as you will use power faster.
Luna Cycle has been known for years as an ebike industry leader in ebikes. Without a good powerful light weight battery the rest of the bike will be landfill. This bike utilizes a battery pack which has been integrated into the downtube, yet is easily removable as needed allowing for quick changes. The battery will include 2 keys with a locking release mechanism, securing the battery firmly in place and adding to the strength of the downtube. The battery also has its own state of charge indicator, power switch and charging port, allowing you to remove the pack and safely charge your battery in a more convenient location than the bike may be stored in.
The X-1 is a legitimate contender for ANY other electric Enduro eBike on the market, and will fit in on almost ANY trail due to the stealthy design and quietness. At first glance, it will appear to be a tricked out Enduro eBike to even the most seasoned riders, allowing you to hold your head high as you share the trail with standard bikes and eBike alike. Of course, the added benefit of being able to smoke any other $8000+ OEM 250 watt spec’d bike up a hill is priceless.
Luna has always offered way and beyond our advertised warranty. That is nothing new, but recently people have perpetuated the myth we do not support our products. We have always supported our products over and beyond any written warranty.
We are offering a longer written warranty in answer to the forum haters.
This warranty covers manufacturer defects and does not cover user neglect.
Every member of our support team is an electric bike fanatic owning many ebikes and believe in ebikes. We are busy and prefer email and chat over phones but we get back to everyone in a timely manner. We have a knowledge base and extensive troubleshooting guides on most of our products. For an e-commerce ebike company we believe we are second to none and are proud of our team.
We recommend if you require more face to face customer service and need regular maintenance done to your bike we fully endorse local bike and ebike stores as a better way to buy.
We supply a tool kit with every bike we sale complimentary so you are able to do your own bicycle maintenance and repairs.. By nature all bicycles are a bit delicate and will require wrenching.
Originally the bike had a nylon gear which made the bike almost silent for an ebike, now with the change to an all metal gearbox the bike is not as quiet as the prototype was. It's slightly louder than a BBSHD if you ever seen one.
We are proud to offer the Luna X1 enduro in 4 sizes. But really so many sizes is not needed. With electric bikes we always recommend when in doubt go with a smaller size, frame size is not as critical with an electric bike as it is in a pedal bike since optimal pedal efficiency is not as important. Here is a chart to help you find your right size. Also remember that in modern mountain bikes like this one with swept low downtube frames with remote controlled drop out seat posts where you can instantly change your seat height.... they are easy to step over and size really is not as critical...so another good reason to opt for the smaller size. Sizing is not a critical decision on the X bike. If you are in doubt go to a local bike shop and sit on comparable mountain boost bikes to get an idea of sizing.
WE SHIP BIKES TO USA AND CANADA ONLY. FOR HAWAII AND ALASKA PLEASE CONTACT US TO ARRANGE THE ORDER. Your bike will be shipped as freight from our Southern California warehouse so it's not your usual small packet delivery truck that will handle it. If the shipping address you used is a residential one then the delivery date that is shown on the tracking system is likely not the day that they will deliver it to. It's the day that FedEx will call you to schedule the delivery appointment. Best is to call them a day ahead of that date! We generally ship Sur-Rons on Friday after the stated lead time for your particular order. For lead time estimates see this page
Hands down best bike on the market for the price.. Ive had mine for about 8 months and i truly love it. I got the XL and wish i would have got the L I’m 5’10” 220 and XL is just a bit to big.
The Luna X1 is completely awesome! I have been a Specialized product believer for the last 15 year. My previous Specialized bikes have never let me down. Turning the page and wanting an EMB, I was torn between purchasing Turbo Levo and the Luna X1. After tons of research and financial comparisons, I decided to go with the X1 due to the specs of the components, tires, battery and especially the motor. I had the X1 for a week now and its more impressive than I ever expected. I know i made the correct choice after putting the X1 to numerous tests in the wood and on the streets. The X1 killed it jumping things and powering through the uphills! I loved this bike so much and loved the support I received from Luna that i just purchased a second X1 today. I would give 6 starts if i could!!!!!
I finally was able to get one that fits me very well. Most of the bikes for sale are large or XL. I just wished they have different colors, but I love the high gloss finish. There's some pro and cons but mostly pros.
First, this bike is not made for road riding, it's an Enduro mountain bike. I just don’t like thin tires; I like riding in comfort. I love the mountain bike style, always have. I even had a custom-built full suspension mountain bike frame when I was a kid. I have never owned a road bike, never want to.
It’s not a speed demon, tops off at 25mph and the pedelic (pedal assist) stops. I can use the throttle to go pass 25mph, so it's considered a class 2 at best.
I have not made a lot of changes on the bike. I plan on replacing the stem with a slight raise and handlebars, they're too wide for me but that's customizing so not a con. I already replaced the saddle, got one that fits me based on the sit bones measurements I made prior. I also replaced the pedals, it was a cheap one, it wiggles (a con but is it? Normally they don’t come with them on high performance bikes).
Another pro is the looks. I love the way the battery is basically hidden under the down tube. Components that came with it are very good (except for the pedals). The drive train is a Sram SX 12 speed, got a Sram Guide 4 piston with 203mm front and 180mm rear disc, extra braking power. The unit came with a 32t chainring. Remember, I said it’s made for off road riding. 32t is made for climbing. I had to replace it with a 42t one to get more speed, not really a con but something to think about.
My cons would be it's a carbon fiber bike, not really a con but the frame design is very tight, meaning I'm having difficulty mounting fenders in it. Being carbon fiber, I have this unsettling feeling one day the bike might snap in half w/o warning, so I hope the frame is built well (which I think it is based on the company's reputation). Frame has a 2-year warranty plus I don't plan on abusing it anyway.
The display mount came in damage. Luna Cycle sent me a replacement as soon as I informed them about the issue. I believe it was damaged during shipping. The extra battery and some goodies were inside the box and not secured, they might have shifted during transport. I remembered the extra battery was near the handlebars when I unpacked it. The display was already loosely mounted on the handlebars. BTW, they sent me a set of tools with the case and an aluminum water bottle.
Speaking of the battery, it comes with a mid-power capacity (13ah), understandable with the way it was designed. I don’t think I can get a higher capacity battery, it’s a small footprint. With this ride, I have gotten it 20 miles (in flat paved roads) with 75% battery used so it may go up to 30 miles per full charge at PAS level 3. The reason I got an extra battery. Now this ride I tried it with PAS level 3. Level 1 and 2 will give me better range but motor doesn't give me a lot of power. Level 1 and 2 is primarily for low level assist, I use my legs more. Level 3,4, 5 gives out more power, if kicks it up a notch but cuts off at 25mph. Battery drains a lot faster too. I got this bike with the optional Ludicrous mode, this drains battery faster but has a nice kick to it, sometime too much. I have to properly gear the bike correctly or else due to its power, it may easily damage the drive train. I also got the “silent treatment” option. The stock motor came with metal gears, it makes more noise, because of that Luna Cycles developed a “space age” plastic gear to reduce the noise level. I can say it does work. I can barely hear the motor running. Luna claims the “space age” plastic is very strong, time will tell.
Would I recommend this to others? Depends on your knowledge in doing your own repairs. Luna Cycles is based in California, they can support you with what's wrong with the bike (if you have issues) but you must make adjustments yourself or have a bike shop make them, at your expense. I have some skills or knowledge (not a professional) but there are times where I need to take it to the shop, mostly because I don’t have the tools to do it myself or just lazy. Luna Cycles is more of a DYI company. They make high performance bikes but you're basically on your own to figure out on “how to” stuff. If you're that type of person then yes get one from them but if you rely of bike shops on everything then I would suggest you get one from a local shop.
This bike is a keeper.
Took the X1 (ludicrous) out for a first ride - and 18 miler in Niscene Marks. The bike handles extremely well and has lots of power. It floated over big roots, dips, and a small log. The torque sensor too a bit of getting used to coming from a BBS02 equipped hardtail. But once I got used to it and found the right PAS level I was tackling harder terrain than I ever have before. It climb like a possessed mountain goat. Uphills became down hills and it was pretty easy to get the front wheel in the air with just a bit of pedal effort. I'd cannot remember having more fun mountain biking! It is a little on the loud side (especially compared to a virtually silent BBS02), but I'm hoping that will lessen after the gears break in and maybe a re-packing of grease. It is a beautiful machine and I'm super happy with it overall.
Hello, I like X-1 Enduro FS EBIKE. And I want to buy it

Actually I am Indonesian people and usually bought electronic from Chinese suppliers
Would like to order Enduro x1 fs e bike with light and extra battery and ludicrous
Bike arrived 9/20/19. Opened the box and noticed the complimentary Luna toolbox was resting on the rear derailleur. Since the toolbox was "free floating" in the box it managed to bend the derailleur and hanger which didn't allow the limit screw to adjust the chain to reach all gears. It works ok as is but definitely needs a new derailleur and hanger to work perfect. Some of the teeth on the gears are a bit bent. Also, one of the two wires coming out of the bottom bracket was rubbing on the rear tire and needed to be ziptied differently. Make sure you double check all screws for correct torque. Rear brake mounting screws were "hand tight" without any threadlock. The front brake was fine. Found a few others not torqued to correct specs listed on the bolts. Bike also came with a womens saddle :) which doesn't look bad but I replaced it with something comfortable. Motor is quiet, I like the smoothness it engages compared to Bosch and Brose motors on other ebikes I've ridden. My longest ride in desert with hilly conditions was 35 miles with 25% battery left and the motor was not hot. Really nice looking bike! I'm 6' 3" and the XL frame fits me nicely. I switched out the nice looking Luna pedals for ones with better grip. Seat dropper wiggles a bit. Back end flexes side to side and suspension linkages make creaking and cracking sounds. I'm having fun with the bike but definitely needs attention before riding as any shipped bike should. I'll reach out to Luna regarding the derailleur to see if anything can be done there.
Great looking bike! Interesting mix of components; really good tires and shocks. Out of box, the front brake was frozen on one side and wire was bent 90° where it enters rear derailleur. Rear derailleur stops were set to prevent shifting into tallest gear. Adjusted, but chain runs on spokes in that gear and is silly close to tire too. That gear isn't needed with all the power anyway! Got up to 45kph just throttling, not pedaling at all, on flat ground. Can't wait to get some rides in, seems well-built so far.
