America has become eBike obsessed! If 2020 taught us anything, it’s that electric bikes are here to stay. And if you’re reading this, then you’ll know that doing your best to reduce your carbon footprint, and choosing the best eBike for your money is a seemingly daunting task. Until recently, you’d have to fork out (sorry - we had to) a pretty penny to join the eBike crowd. But luckily for you - we’re here to introduce to you - affordable eBikes without compromising on quality.
With ego and cost aside, it's hard to find a reason why investing in a rad power bike is not a great idea, (if you can get your hands on one, that is). E-Bikes can make any adventure a lot more fun. And if that’s not the case, well you only have yourself to blame. Not only do QuietKat eBikes get you outside, but they make the journey as thrilling as the destination, especially if you’re commuting to work.
QuietKat is a Colorado based bike brand, which means we know all about bike shop culture and that sometimes, it can be a little intimidating. We’ve put together some maintenance “how to” videos here, so you know what to expect from your new eBike before making the jump (on or off the bike). We know what you’re thinking - don’t people from Colorado just do stuff in the snow? The answer is yes, but now we do it by bike too! Impressive, huh?
Consider us your friendly QuietKat bearded bike shop employee - we’re here to tell you which electric bikes for adults are the best for your buck.
Commute in style (and with speed)—the best commuter eBike for your money
What do you think when you see the word “commute”? It goes hand-in-hand with everything mundane about adulting, right? Well, being all grown up means equipping yourself with the tools to make your day as efficient as possible (translation: buying yourself an eBike).
Between April and May 2020 traffic increased by almost 45 billion vehicle-miles. And let’s face it, the biggest issue with working life, especially in cities, is the commute. Traffic jams, road-rage, and pollution. Hopefully we can all agree that this fact alone deserves the bird. Maybe it’s time to leave the car in your garage, and get on the bike?
Buy yourself a stellar off-road adventure—the best all-terrain eBike for your money
If you want to save a little without giving up a lot, take a look at the Villager. Our newest model is based on our popular Ranger electric bike but scaled down so you can have all the tremendous QuietKat quality at a lower price point. Starting at $1,999, the Ranger 5.0 features:
- A 500w hub-drive motor with speeds up to 20mph.
- Integrated 14ah/48V battery and premium components.
- 7-speed gearing
- A removable thumb throttle—giving you the power you need at a moment's notice.
- 325 lbs of load capacity, so you can load up your eBike with the gear for your next off-road adventure.
- A range up to 42 miles allowing you to go further and farther.
- 26''x3" Kenda street tread tires to take on tough terrain.
With a great bike comes even greater responsibilityYou don’t need to have read this full article to know that owning an eBike means the possibilities are endless. There are few trails that our eBikes won’t be able to handle, so you can explore more than you can with a traditional bike. But what does all of this mean without the flourishing habitats we’re discovering and fresh water to enable the fish and wildlife to thrive?
At QuietKat, we strive to empower our fellow bicycle aficionados by shopping responsibly. We’ve partnered up with some active conservation groups to show our support for their work which is fundamental to our beloved bike industry. If you’re in the market for a new electric bike, you can donate some of your QuietKat purchase to one of our partner organizations.
So before we go, there’s one last thing you should know. As a proud (future) eBike owner your job is not yet done. Although our fleet of eBikes comply with National Park regulations, it’s important that you know your duty as an eBike owner, and the etiquette that comes with it.
So, get out there, get a grip and remember - it’s the journey, not the destination.
