Velowave Ranger Fat Tire Electric Bike-Review
The Velowave Ranger is a fat tire electric mountain bike with a 750 watt geared motor. It is a cool electric bike to ride in the snow and enjoy winter without getting dirty. The bike is made of aluminum and has a fat tire which can be used when riding on soft surface or snow. The bike comes with a 48 volt 15 ah lithium ion battery which is removable and can be recharged fully in 2 hours. The battery pack can be charged on or off the bike. The bike weighs about 48 lbs and has a weight capacity of 300 lbs. The bike comes with an LCD display which shows the speed, current, trip distance, time and has a built in USB port for charging your smart phone.
The display will also tell you the battery level if you press the mode button. The display can also show you the current gear and how much power the motor is using. There are 3 modes on the display which are normal bike mode, throttle mode and pedal assist mode. In pedal assist mode you can use the throttle to control the amount of power that goes to the motor, this is great for climbing hills.
The bike comes with an alloy crank set which is shifter by Shimano 7 speeds rear derailleur. It has an adjustable seat post that ranges from 28″ to 34″ (700c) and has a front suspension fork for smooth riding on rough terrain.
The bike comes with disc brakes both front and back for maximum stopping power even in the worst conditions. It also has a bright front LED lighting system for safe riding at night time. This is one of the best electric bikes that I have ever seen because of its high quality fat tires which no other electric bikes have. It also has great features like Thumb Throttle, LCD display, front suspension fork and disc brakes.

MOTOR (50W BAFANG Geared Hub Motor):
Velowave Ranger uses a 750W Bafang geared hub motor with a 48V 15Ah battery. The motor is very powerful for an electric mountain bike. It can easily climb hills and accelerate fast. The bike can reach speeds of 20 mph (32 km/h) and beyond with the throttle turned on. The motor is very quiet during operation and I love the fact that it is gearless which means there are no maintenance issues. You just have to oil the chain once in a while to keep it running smooth.
BATTERY (48V 15AH, LG Cells):
The battery of the Velowave Ranger Fat Tire Electric Bike is a 48V 15AH, LG cells. It has a great lifespan and can easily last you over 30 miles on a single charge. The battery charges within 2 hours and can be charged from a regular wall power outlet. It is also very easy to remove the battery once it is fully charged and store it for later use.
The bike comes in three riding modes which are Normal Bike mode; Throttle mode; Pedal mode. The first two modes are the most commonly used ones. The throttle mode is one that we have seen on most electric mountain bikes and the one I love the most because, it allows me to ride faster without having to pedal all the way. Pedal mode is simply where you can pedal all the way if you don’t want to use the throttle.
The display on this bike is very convenient as it shows all the information that you need to know while riding. It shows your speed, battery level, distance travelled, odometer and how fast you are pedaling. You just need to press the mode button in order to see these different pieces of information. You can also turn on the headlight by pressing the light button at the top right corner of the display. It comes with a backlight function too so you can ride at night without any problems.
The tires on this bike are 26″*4.0″ Kenda Fat Tires. They are big and wide which gives you great stability when riding on rough terrains including snow, sand or loose gravel. They are also very strong and can withstand a lot of pressure from sharp objects like thorns and nails. The tires are also puncture-resistant which means that you won’t have to worry about flat tires even if you ride over rough surfaces very often.
The frame on this electric mountain bike is made from aluminum which makes it lightweight yet very durable and sturdy. The frame is also very easy to maintain as it will not rust even if you ride it in wet conditions or near water bodies. The frame comes with a kickstand that is built into the frame itself so you don’t have to worry about carrying around a kickstand while riding this bike. This makes it really convenient if you want to park your bike anywhere even if there is no flat surface available to place it down on.
FRONT SUSPENSION FORK:
The front suspension fork is hydraulic suspension fork that offers great control in rugged terrain such as sand or snow. It absorbs shock from bumpy surfaces very well thus making your ride more comfortable and enjoyable. The fork will not break even if you are riding hard over rough terrains as it is made from steel that makes it very strong and durable. The fork can easily be adjusted by loosening its thumb screws in order to raise or lower it depending on your preferences.
