The Gladiator X - 72v Sur-Ron Drop In Upgrade

Fulfilled by our friends at Chi Battery Systems - We cannot deliver within the EU and UK at this time due to shipping regulations adopted in 2022.

Meet the Gladiator X72 Compact (formerly "the Gladiator X"), available for the Sur-ron X (Light Bee)! This battery is a higher voltage and requires the use of an aftermarket controller to make it compatible, as well as a 72V charger. Built to be drop-in for ease of use.

How does it stand in our lineup? 

The 72 Compact is designed for riders who want more power and speed out of their bike, while also getting some extra range. Crank up the power and leave everyone in the dust! With 22kw of real-world continuous power, the 72 Compact allows you to push your bike to new limits with ease.  If you’re mostly looking for range, or do not intend to buy an aftermarket controller, take a look at our Gladiator 60 Series offerings!

The Steel Edition of the 72 Compact is reinforced with galvanized steel built right into the construction of the battery. Designed to retain drop-in functionality, no compromises are necessary. Since this housing is internal, the 72 Compact maintains the same external aesthetic.

This battery will require you to have a 72V compatible controller, as well as a 72V charger.

         Video Install Guide

        You will need to set your low voltage cut-off to 48v with the Gladiator. Since we bypass the BMS for discharge, when using an aftermarket controller you will be able to run the battery so low it will pass a “point of no return”. The stock controller takes care of this for you, but you may need to set it for the controller you are using if it is not stock.
