Equally suited to riding along inner-city streets and forested trails, the CIVI BIKES 500W Predator - Pre Order Fat Tire Hardtail Mountain Electric Bike gives you access to the best of both worlds. With a high-capacity battery, an easy to use control pad, and a range of excellent inclusions to make off-road riding more comfortable, the CIVI BIKES Predator packs a lot of punch considering its competitive price point.
The key to any successful off-road electric bike is found in the power, the suspension, and the tires. The e-bike needs sufficient power and torque to navigate over obstacles, adequate suspension to absorb the shocks of hitting bumps and divots, plus tires that are capable of traveling over all kinds of terrain. The CIVI BIKES Predator addresses all of these 3 areas with practicality and finesse. The 500 watt Bafang electric motor is a high-speed, internally-geared motor, which has the potential to output over 800 watts of power. With a torque measurement of 80NM, this engine will make it easier to ascend steep inclines. The inclusion of a MOZO front suspension fork with 120 mm of travel ensures that jarring will be kept to a minimum. Even better, the suspension fork has a lock-out function that improves efficiency and speed when riding over smooth terrain (e.g. a suburban street or sidewalk). Finally, the CIVI BIKES Predator hardtail electric mountain bike is equipped with fat tires that are an impressive 4 inches wide. The knobbed finish of these fat tires gives them impressive traction over all manner of surfaces, including slick mud, fresh snow, and even loose sand.
To ensure a range of up to 50 miles when used in conjunction with PAS (or 30 miles using just the throttle), the electric motor runs off a 48 volt, 13 amp hour lithium-ion battery. This battery is easy to remove, so recharging is as simple as carrying it indoors and plugging it into the charger. The partial integration of the battery pack improves the sleek lines of this hardtail electric mountain bike, while the positioning helps to maintain a low center of gravity.
