How To Choose a CYC Battery

To choose a CYC battery, it's best to first know what kit you'll use it for. We currently offer three kits listed from lowest to highest power capabilities:

If you're new to ebikes and ebike batteries, we strongly recommend reading this article before moving forward so that you can figure out the battery that suits your desired riding style.

When looking at batteries, it's important to understand what the specs can offer you. There's more to it than simply looking at power capabilities. With our new A-Series battery product line, we offer two choices, the A-52 and A-52L battery.

The main difference is that the A-52L is larger and a bit heavier than the A-52 battery, handling higher voltage, bigger capacity, and BMS rating. The A-Series batteries have Samsung 50S battery cells, which have a higher capacity compared to our previous B-Series 50E and 40T cells.

It's worth noting that there will be trade-offs with battery specs. You can't have it all unless you have massive amounts of space on your bike frame and don't mind carrying a heavy load. That said, most riders- us included, have limited frame space and want our ride to be as light as possible when on the road or trails.

The tradeoff is this: if you want to go far, then it won't be as powerful- and vice versa.

The A-Series battery packs with the Samsung 50S cells are fantastic for those wanting to go for a day out on the bike and cover long distances where weight isn't the top priority. With capacities of 520Wh and 780Wh, these packs alleviate range anxiety. They are also particularly well suited for utilization with our CYC Photon and X1 Stealth Gen 3 kits.

While they can considered as an option for the X1 Pro 5000W version, it's important to note that the system won't fully harness the complete 5000W output. If you want to utilize the full power of the X1 Pro, then you'll need to source a 72V. Don't stress though! Our support team can help you with the specs needed and depending on your area, even recommend a pack from another trusted supplier. With that said, we trust you'll be fully geared up with a fitting helmet and safety pads since you're verging on motorbike-like power.

For questions or advice regarding your bike build, our technical support team ( is more than happy to help! Be sure to give us basic details of your build and desired ride style so we can advise accordingly.

Otherwise, head on over to our online store or an authorized CYC dealer and get your hands on a power supply well-suited for your CYC ebike and eMTB kit!
