More about the Apex and Ranger electric bikes for hunting


The Apex is our most popular eBike for hunting, and for a good reason. Its stealth is its most appealing feature to hunters. The mid-drive motor on this model is proven to be quiet, so there’s no risk of spooking the game. The Apex can be equipped with a 750, 1000, or 1500 watt motor and a twelve-amp hour battery. A 1000 watt electric hunting bike, like the Apex, offers an unbeatable experience on backcountry trails.

The Apex is also an excellent choice if you take on varied terrain during your hunt. The Apex easily adapts and powers through the woods or backcountry with ease. Even on uneven terrain, you’ll enjoy a much smoother ride than you might expect. The QuietKat Apex also includes an unbeatable lifetime warranty for the frame and a one-year warranty for all other components.

If you’re looking for durability and a cheaper electric bike than the Backcou Mule and Rambo Rebel, then The Ranger is the eBike for you. It’s built tough, making it one of the most reliable options on this list when tackling challenging terrain. In addition, the Ranger’s motor is power-efficient and on par with the more expensive Rambo model. 

The Ranger is also one of the most affordable eBikes for hunting available on the market—without compromising on quality. The Ranger model is cheaper than the QuietKat Apex because its hub motor is not suitable for climbing extremely steep hills. But if you’re not climbing mountains, The Ranger is one of the best eMTBs for hunting at a very affordable price point. It outperforms many other electric bikes in this price range. 

The Ranger comes with QuietKat’s unbeatable lifetime warranty for the frame and a one-year warranty for all other components. 

Why Choose QuietKat?

There are many great eBikes for hunting on the market, but we believe QuietKat’s bikes are superior in quality and durability. They’re designed for hunters by hunters and come with all the hunting eBike essentials. There is an old adage that says, “You get what you pay for.” The RadRover5 is a good budget pick if a low price is your biggest priority. However, the price does come with some drawbacks; the motor power cuts off abruptly when you hit the speed limitation, instead of easing off gradually like other models. Further, the RadRover5 can’t carry as much weight as the other electric bikes on our list.

You don’t need to take our word for it. Unlike many other electric bike manufacturers on our lists, QuietKat’s 30-day trial lets you try out our bikes for a whole month and then return them if you are unsatisfied. For example, the Rambo website states that the bike must remain in the box. It may be hard to tell if the Rebel is the electric bike for you if you can’t get a proper ride experience. Our 30-day trial allows you to get a real feel for the bike and how it will behave on a hunt. So take it out of the box, gear up and hop in the saddle.

We bet you won't find a more powerful and durable bike at this price point on the market. If you’re new to eBikes, be sure to check out our electric hunting bike guide to learn about the different features and components you should look for in choosing the best electric bike for hunting.
