This is our entry level hardtail mountain bike. The eXplorer has a fantastic component spec, and is a very high quality ride. For the quality of the components that you get with this bike, it is a great value. If you live for the mountains and yearn to explore untamed wilderness, this bike is for you. Featuring robust mid drive 750W, 1200W or 1500W output, this bike is engineered to take you places a normal hub motor bike cannot. Steep climbs are a breeze with this motor system. Since the motor utilizes the bikes own gearing, efficiency in mountainous areas is up to 200% better than a comparable hub motor drive system.
This do it all e-bike is equally suited for hunters who want to venture way back into the wilderness and get as much range as possible or for college students looking for a silent, powerful daily commuter that will climb any hill he or she may encounter along the way. Since you can shift through the different speeds of the bike with your motor, your top speed can vary from 7 mph with huge torque for hill climbing to 30+ mph on the straightaways- all with one motor! With the new optional for 2017 1500W motor setup, your top speed can climb to 35 mph with even more torque!
The eXplorer is a great looking MTB that performs as well as it looks. It's provided Rockshox Sector Silver TK AIR suspension fork is tough, high quality, and offers 120mm of travel to soak up the bumps! A full SRAM X-7 shifter and rear derailleur system ensures shifts are quick and efficient. 160mm Hydraulic Magura MT4e brakes deliver supreme stopping power. Standard on the eXplorer is a custom profile chainring allows for noise levels at or below a direct drive hub motor system which is quite an accomplishment in itself!
