01 Mar Magnum Peak Video Review – Fast, Affordable & Fun Electric Mountain Bike
The Magnum Peak is high speed 28 mph electric hardtail with with throttle on demand, hydraulic disc brakes and an extra large battery for $2k, all around good value with a 24 speed drivetrain. Optional rear rack for $50 transform the Peak into a sporty commuter, only one frame size and color scheme but the angled top tube makes it approachable, great saddle and pedal upgrades. Zippy 500 watt motor paired with a 48 volt battery and 9 Mosfet controller pushing 18 Amps, the controller is overbuilt and mounted separately for better heat dispersion. No bottle cage bosses, motor cable protrudes near rear derailleur but a metal guard helps protect it, quick cadence sensor, fixed display panel could be more vulnerable, lots of wires up front.
