Summary

  • A premium cruiser style electric bike with upgraded suspension seat post, integrated LED lights, a sturdy rack and hydraulic disc brakes
  • Powerful 500 to 1,000+ watt hub motor from Bafang/Dapu with high-torque rating and durable protected wiring system, it’s zippy but compact and light weight
  • Comfort saddle, padded grips and oversized handlebar offer a relaxed upright riding experience, USB charging port on the display panel for portable electronics
  • Only available in one color choice but you get two frame styles (cantilever high-step or wave step-thru), display panel is not removable, bike is rear-heavy

Pros:

  • Cruiser style bicycles are already known for being comfortable with their long swept-back handlebars, padded grips and oversized saddles but the Platinum Interceptor takes it further with a light weight air suspension fork and seat post suspension
  • Integrated headlight and rear-light run off the main battery so you don’t need to worry about replacing AA batteries or turning them off and taking them off the bike when parking
  • Available in two frame styles, the classic cantilever high-step is stiffer but the wave step-thru is easier to mount and stand over
  • These electric bikes offer instant power with throttle-on-demand as well as smart assist that responds to torque and cadence
  • Heavier and taller riders don’t always have good options in the ebike space but the full sized Platinum Interceptor is one of the strongest and largest cruiser style ebikes I have tested
  • Paint-matched chain cover will keep your pants from getting dirty or snagged and the rear rack acts like a fender keeping your back dry when the going gets wet
  • This is a purpose-built electric bike with stronger tubing and rack design, YYB-3 actually reinforced the rack in recent years and includes a spring latch for small light weight items, I like how wiring is mostly internally routed on the frame to reduce snags and improve the aesthetic
  • YYB-3 offers their own line of accessories including a pannier bag set that works perfectly with their rack mounted battery, has integrated reflectors and won’t block the rear light
  • The stated maximum rider weight on this bike is 350 lbs (which is way above average, most are just 250 lbs) but it sounds like some even larger riders have been able to ride it without issue (one owner started at 450 lbs and lost a bunch of weight over time)
  • Notice how angled the seat tube is, this is designed to position your body as if it were sitting on a chair with feet forward vs. straight down, this allows riders to lower the saddle and makes mounting / dismounting easier, the oversized comfort saddle further increases stability along with wider balloon tires
  • The Schwalbe tires have a puncture resistant Kevlar liner which is great because at ~61 lbs it’s no fun to get a flat with one of these bikes, the inner tubes are also pre-Slimed with self sealent so you can pump up small leaks and limp along until you have access to a full replacement (carrying a mini-pump would be a good idea to take advantage of this feature)
  • With a quick release removable front wheel and that removable battery pack that weighs 8 to 9 lbs, you can more easily lift and move the bike
  • Premium hydraulic disc brakes with large 180 mm rotors offer the kind of stopping power I usually see on mountain bikes, it’s a great choice here given the weight of the bike and torque of the motor, they have adjustable reach levers so people with smaller hands or gloves won’t struggle to use them and there are motor inhibitors built in to cut power when you stop!
  • In addition to the rear rack, you get a pair of bottle cage bosses on the downtube! this is useful for hydration but could also accommodate a folding lock or mini pump accessory
  • Dapu is a leader in e-bike hub motors and their latest design has the power cable running between the frame and disc brake which is less exposed than older versions where it entered through the end of the axle and could get snagged or bent if the bike tipped
  • YYB-3 has expanded their warranty to two-years comprehensive including battery and parts, lifetime on the frame, that’s an industry leading policy
  • The display panel has a full sized USB port mounted underneath which could charge your phone (especially useful if you’ve got a mount on the bars and use it for GPS) or a music player or even extra lights (like holiday lights strung across the frame)
  • With torque sensing in the first four levels of assist, the bike doesn’t zip forward and feel as jerky as some older models, but you still have a cadence option at level 5 if you prefer not to push as hard due to a knee injury or because you don’t want to get sweaty
  • The USB port is not powered on at all times so press and hold the set and plus buttons simultaneously to activate it
  • YYB-3 includes a cool “starter pack” with each bike now that includes the fast 3 Amp charger, manuals, awesome Wellgo pedals and chip repair paint… it’s very well done and thoughtful
