Best E-Bikes for Hunting
Are you looking for an easier way to get to your blind or tree stand? Or perhaps check all your trail cams in a fraction of the time it takes today? Is that sweet spot you know getting harder to reach? When you have to carry 50lbs of gear on your back for 5 or even 10 miles and if you’re lucky you have something to haul back out, using an electric bike built specifically for offroad use and woodlands, that are also capable of carrying your gear would make the experience a whole lot more enjoyable. Electric hunting bikes have been around for a few years, and technology has come a long way. Today ebikes explicitly built for hunting can make a big difference to the success of your trip and every trip after that.
Contrary to popular belief it's not just a standard ebike with a camo paint job, There's a lot more to it than that. The excellent electric hunting bikes that we’ll look at later in the write-up start with the motor, a motor that is powerful enough to carry a 300lb rider and still tow a trailer with lots of gear. The bike is then designed and built around that motor. The bike frame needs to be built to withstand the rough terrain but light enough to lift out of your truck or trailer.
The Mule E bike by Bakcou is available in either the 750 watts or 1000 watt and carries that phenomenal Ultra mid drive Bafang motor so the performance on steep hills and rough terrain makes this a best in class. It carries the Ultra motor. Built by hunters for hunters, the Mule comes as standard with front light, fenders, rear rack and Teflon liners to help prevent punctures. The 750 watt model has a top speed of 20mph while the 1000 watt model reaches 35mph without pedaling. Stand over height of 30 inches so ranging from 5’9” to 6’4” this frame size is perfect.
Rambo Bikes also have the 1000 watt version of the model. Aptly named the Rebel 1000W, same frame with a larger 1000 watt motor and a larger battery of 48V, 21Ah and a top speed of 28mph The Nomad and Bushwacker 750W XPS/XPC/XPC11 and the Rebel 1000W are real good hill climbers making use of that mid drive so ideal for moderate to rough terrain and hilly areas. The Rebel 1000W Truetimber is Rambo’s most powerful 1000 watt mid drive electric hunting bike. Also similar to the Rambo 750W with a larger battery, more powerful motor and greater top speed of 28mph. Stand over height of 31 inches.
Jeep and Quietkat put their heads together and came up with an awesome full suspension, all terrain ebike that can handle anything. The Jeep ebike has a very solid frame that sits on 26” wheels and 4.8” fat tires capable of conquering any terrain. Full suspension too, so no matter the surface you’ll feel comfortable and in control. 150mm of travel in the front suspension and 120mm travel in the rear suspension allow for handling on very rough terrain.
