New and exciting e-bikes are popping up left and right, and it goes without saying that now is the best time to hop aboard the e-bike craze if you haven't already. There are tons of e-bikes out there for all sorts of riders ranging from utility-focused cargo bikes to trail-shredding electric mountain bikes. Though there are seemingly strict rules surrounding e-bike performance, lots of manufacturers find way to bend these rules.
Take for example, this burly electric mountain bike from Canadian cycling company Nireeka. Its newest electric bike, the Revenant, is currently undergoing a campaign on Indiegogo, and is priced at the equivalent of $2,105 USD for the standard model, to $2,361 USD for the more powerful Bafang-equipped variant.
For an e-bike, the integrated ABS found on the Revenant is a relatively uncommon feature. To determine your speed and whether the wheels could lock, the device employs speed sensors on the front wheel. The 480 Wh battery and 250W motor are features of the standard version. A top speed of 35 miles per hour, and up to 85 Nm of torque are possible with the optional upgrade to the 1,000W Bafang motor. Additionally, this model includes a Samsung 840 Wh battery that gives you up to 50 miles of range on a single charge. The battery can be fully recharged in three to five hours when using the fast charger that comes with the bike.
The Revenant is equipped with hydraulic disc brakes, plus headlights and taillights make it easier to see and be seen in low light conditions. A full suspension system with 140 mm of front and rear travel, together with fat tires, contribute to the smooth ride on pavement, and a capable trail-muncher. The speed and the distance of your travel are displayed on a simple and intuitive LCD display. As for availability, Nireeka ships to multiple countries across the globe, and the Revenant is expected to begin shipping by February, 2023.
