What is Fit Freedom Technology?
An E-Bike Design that Fits Riders from 4’11” to 6’1″
Adjust the Height of the Seat with a Button Press!
Super Low 24″ Frame Standover
The dropper seat post solves the problem of hitting the seat with your leg while getting on and off the bike.
You can lower the seat when arriving at a stop sign and easily rest your feet on the ground. No more jumping off the bike at stop signs.
Smaller riders now have an e-bike option with a normal frame design and a large battery for long distance riding.
The seat drops down to a height of only 30 inches, and rises to 35 inches, all with the push of a lever. You can also adjust the seat in the frame itself to fit your height perfectly, from 4’11” to 6’1″.
Featuring New “Fit Freedom” Frame Design
If you have difficulty finding a bike that fits your size
If you have difficulty getting on and off normal bikes
If you are looking for a reliable commuter
If you want to ride without range anxiety
If you want a bike that is fun to ride
Then the new Optibike Essex is for you
In speaking with potential customers over the last 12 years, 25% told us they found E-Bikes too large. They did not feel comfortable getting on or riding the bikes, and did not buy one. They ended up missing out on the great freedom and health advantages of E-Bikes.
We wanted everyone to be able to ride an E-Bike and decided to do something about it, so we invented the new “Fit Freedom” frame design.
The new “Fit Freedom” frame design allows the seat to get very low, and you can adjust the seat height with a button press.
You can have the perfect fit for all riding conditions. Set the seat low for mounting and dismounting, and raise it for cruising down the road.
The bike also fits larger riders. You can order a dropper seat post with a travel of 5, 6, or 7 inches, making the bike a fit for riders from 4’11” to 6’1″.
Sturdy and compact, the Essex is easy to ride and installs confidence in the rider.

More power gives you a higher top speed, and lets you climb hills faster.
A bigger battery means you can ride farther, it's like the fuel tank on a car.
More torque lets you start from a dead stop easier, and lets you climb very steep hills.
Some basics on battery capacity and what it means for range.
A battery with more capacity generally means you can go farther on a charge.
However at maximum speed, a more powerful bike will also use more battery capacity per mile traveled.
Knobbier tires can also reduce range due to more rolling resistance on the road, and the terrain you ride on can also heavily affect the range you get.
A Note on E-Bike Range:
At Optibike our ranges are based on actual usage and testing, as well as feedback from our customers.
There is no standard for E-Bike range like there is from the EPA for Car Mileage, as a result an electric bicycle manufacturer can claim whatever they like for their range and top speed. At Optibike we try to present estimated ranges and speeds that are as close as possible to what you’ll actually get.
