 Summary:

  • Fined fat tire electricbike with balanced down tube battery and purpose-built “extrawide” hub motor for improved drive train operation and torque
  • The tires are still 4″ for comfort and traction in sand and snow, the seat post suspension smoothes out the ride
  • Mid-level drive train, mechanical discbrakes, cadence sensing pedal assist vs. torque sensing, great throttle over ride and throttle-only modes ,solid warranty and support

Pros:

  • The control system is easy to reach from the left grip, the LED itself is easy to read and has some great new readouts including charge cycles, battery percentage and voltage
  • The optional integrated USB charging port on the left of handlebar is right where you’d want it to be, easy to access but out of the way (great for powering a GPS, lights or portable music player while riding), I also like that you can see how many charge cycles have been used, battery percentage and voltage along with the more traditional readouts like speed and assist level
  • The hub motor is specially designed for fat tire bikes (it’s wider than normal and geared for higher torque applications), the physical design helps align the cassette with the front chainring improving chain flow and the higher torque is good for moving the heavier rims and tires through snow and sand
  • You get three ways to ride with this system: normal bike or “freeride mode” where the motor does not activate, five levels of cadence sensing assist with throttle override and throttle-only mode
  • I like that this hardtail could easily be used for commuting thanks to the rear rack bosses, be sure to get a disc brake compatible rack
  • There are two threaded eyelets on the seat tube so you can add a bottle cage, mount a portable pump or carry along a folding lock
  • Great power from the Dapu motor, I appreciate the larger 500 watt design and powerful 48 volt battery, the controller sends 12 amps through the system
  • The on/off switch for the battery is easy to reach and deters tampering with the display if you turn it off when parked, I like that the display is backlit
  • Sturdy 15 mm thru axle on the front wheel adds strength for rougher conditions and ensures alignment for the disc brake when the wheel is taken off and then re-attached
  • I like the 26″ x 4″ wheel size for traction in sand, snow and mud but it also just looks cool and improves comfort (depending on how full you ride them),
  • The new Dapu hub motors have an improved power cable design which does not protrude from the axle and instead curves down behind the disc brake for better protection
  • Overall, good balance with the battery low and center on the frame, it blends in, locks and can be charged on or off the frame
  • Disc brakes are the way to go when you’re potentially going into wet and dirty terrain because they stay cleaner, these mechanical brakes are decent and 160/180 mm is the right size
  • I appreciate the kickstand so the bike won’t tip over in your garage and the inclusion of a light is nice for evening or morning bushwhacking
