Sensational bike


I am "WRAPPED"!!!
Received my silver cross x 3 days after ordering from very helpful Alex who made the process easy.
The bike has exceed my expectations with the build quality, ease of riding, the controls and most of all battery life is impressive.

Purchased in September 2019 for $1,295.00.

Dream machine


Receive my Leitner Cross X last week and put the bike together (was so easy)
Tried the bike out on Saturday and found the bike worked perfect
Gears worked perfect and cruise control works like a dream, have changed the cruise speed to go faster 25 kph so easy to access the two grey wires to change
Would recommend using this company for buying ebikes

Purchased in August 2019 for $1,500.00.

The Cross X is more and BETTER than I expected


From payment to delivery of my bike only took three days, IMPRESSIVE. Thanks to a local Ambassador, Geoff, the assembly only took close to an hour, again, IMPRESSIVE. But there are no words to describe the joy when I rode my Cross X for the first time. More than IMPRESSIVE. I am so grateful to Leitner for providing such great product. The friendly service from Jennifer, Damian and the entire team is just as IMPRESSIVE and ready to assist. Keep it guys, I will have no hesitation to recommend Leitner bikes to my family and friends. Cheers

Fantastic Bike 2,000 kilometers and going strong


Had this bike for nearly 12 months so far have taken it off road mountain biking had it up to 70 kilometers an hour going down hill and ride it every day for at least 15 kilometers. Love it I was hesitant at first thinking cheapest bike of them all but let me tell you this baby takes on all comers and its never let me down. Would I recommend Leitner yes their bikes are great but when it comes down to it after sales service is where it counts and Leitner like its bikes excels. I have pushed this bike to its limits and its always comes through like the thoroughbred that it is. Would I recommend a leitner bike the answer is yes if this bike can take what I give it and shine them it will do the same for you.

Surprisingly good value for money


I wanted dual suspension, but didn't want to spend more than my car is worth, so this looked like the way to go for my 10km commute to work. I was pleasantly surprised at how good it is for the money. The seat is a bit on the huge side for a cycling enthusiast, so I've swapped it to something that suits my riding style. My only other complaint is that the pedals are one sided, and it's a bit of a bother to get them the right way up, or put up with having my feet on the wrong side, so I swapped them for some MTB pedals. Very minor complaints for a really good product. Most people would be very happy with it just how it is.

Fantastic Bike, could not be happier!


I was looking into electric bikes for some time and as soon as i discovered LEITNER i had to get one. At such a good price, easy to put together and with great customer support. The bike is so strong and sturdy, the motor works great when you need a bit of help to get up those hills, i could not highly recommend this enough the mountain bike has great suspension a comfortable ride and lets you go anywhere. The battery has a great range and i only have to charge it once a week. Overall a great company to deal with and a even better bike!

Amazing Mountain Bike Built Quality With Great Suspension

Date PurchasedSep 2017

Changes the way you view cycling in a very good way!


Coming from a non cycling background, I purchased one of these because of a license suspension and the need to commute. The electric assist makes the impossible possible and a cheeseburger fanatic can pedal (assisted) 40-50km in distance in 1hr30mins and not have a coronary. Build quality is great, just be sure to fully charge the battery and you'll be good as gold. Money well spent and once that off road beast comes back into stock (more power) I will be trading up for sure.

My posterior has never felt so better, the hill climbs were simply luxuriously easy, the foot to pedal was left wanting more upon our arrival, and when other family members took our bikes out for a spin, will all I can say is hey Leitner hope you got more where they came from?

Date PurchasedApr 2017

Great experience


Ordered this without the benefit of a test ride, but very glad that I did. Sam and the team at Leitner have been very helpful, and the bike itself is well made, and exactly what I was hoping for. Riding uphill is particularly fun, particularly with friends on normal bikes :)

Date PurchasedDec 2016

Like being a kid again such fun for older people


Leitner Cross X a robust electric bike fun to ride very convenient around small country towns what it cost is soon saved in fuel keeps the car from rough road damage.
Once used to the power system it is a buzz it allows riding on paths in town at slower speed as fast as taking the car into town there is no parking problems and a lot more fun it is like being a kid again, I recommend this bike to anyone living in small country towns

Great Product. Great Service


This thank you sent to Leitner in response to an inquiry sums it up.
"Thank you very much for your excellent service.
I have recommended your bikes to friends and this type of service and the quality of your product is the reason for those recommendations.
You have certainly raised the bar in terms of competition and service in an industry which needs to be shaken up".

I love my new Leitner ebike


Fast delivery .
I had my new bike in six days from ordering.
Rugged durability.
This bike is built like a tank and can easily handle rough country roads and tracks.
Value for money
At half the price of other dual suspension bikes with equal quality.
I have had my new bike for six weeks now and are very pleased with it. I took my new bike too Kangaroo island for a weeks holiday. I took it on smooth roads and rough roads, corrugated tracks and sand dunes. It did not fail or brake even on the worst roughest tracks. Very happy with my Leitner CrossX

Questions & Answers

Rob Nasked

Can anyone comment on the long term durability of Leitner bikes? I’m thinking of buying one; all these reviews are impressive, but what about how they stand up over the long term?

3 answers

Hi Rob. I’m not sure about the longevity of the bike as I got one not long ago, but by the framework material, design, and construction I anticipate that is going to last a long long time. I’m more than happy with mine. Cheers mate, Hugo


Mine does 60km per day 5 days a week carrying myself (85kg), a bike carrier (15kg), my daughter (26kg) and my son (24kg) as well as often carrying up to 20kg shopping (total of 150-170kg) and has held up exceptionally well. I've had to buy a second battery as the strain drains it more than normal and I've had to replace the planetary gear in the motor hub due to excessive strain being placed on it but it lasted a year before it got stripped and was doing 100km per school day for the last term of last year. If you aren't putting one through as much hell as I do your planetary gear should last 5-6 years easily and your battery should last 4-5 years. I've also had to replace the disc brake pads once (because of the extra weight wearing them down faster) and my stand also snapped off, but that was due to my son constantly throwing his weight to the sides (he's severely autistic).
The last damage done was my gear shifter display panel got shattered and my front mud guard got snapped off, but again that was thanks to my son. The frame is exceptionally durable, as are the wheel rims. The only thing that is a bit fragile are the wires on the front light as they detach easily and drop down onto the tyre then snap. I had thicker terminals attached to them after they snapped off and that fixed the problem until someone tried to steal my bike and snapped one off in the process.
A bit of a long-winded reply, but an honest one which I hope helps to aid you in your decision making process. If it helps, the staff at Leitner are exceptionally helpful and I've had great dealings wih Tim Leitner, Kitty and Damian- all three of whom have been phenomenal in assisting me to get my Cross-X back on the road everytime I've pushed it way past its limits.


For further clarification the most I've carried on the bike was just over 200kg carrying myself, carrier, both kids, about 30kg of supplies for a party and my daughters electric motorbike (22kg). The bike struggled, but still got the job done at about 20km/h... this was quite possibly what damaged the planetary gear leading to it stripping a few months later. So yeah, it's quite the powerhouse considering the price.

Hi guys! I'm wondering if anyone has successfully installed a rear rack on the Cross X mountain bike. I'm looking to install one on mine but I have no idea how to. If any of you guys have done so, will you post a photo of your bike please?

No but I'm interested in this myself!

Hi Danny & Rob,

Thanks for the enquiry, obviously as the bike has rear suspension finding a rear rack can be quite tricky. However, while we do not provide any options ourselves a number of options do exist. Most bike shops or a quick Google search will be able to help you with a seat post mounted pannier rack. Just keep in mind that with these racks they generally are unable to take as much weight as a normal pannier rack.

Hope this helps

Kind Regards

Thanks for your reply Leitner!

My local bike shop said that it would be possible to fit a rack in provided that the rear suspension can be locked out. Can you please advise if this is possible?
