Yes, a fat bike will be all sorts of useful if you want to get around on two wheels when snow season descends upon us. You know, what’s even better? An electric fat bike, so you don’t have to kill your legs pedaling through slushy terrain. If that’s still not good enough, how about an electric fat bike with an actual ATV tire up front for maximum float? That’s exactly what you’re getting with the XTerrain500.
Designed to let you ride comfortably over snow, sand, and other soft terrain, you can take it riding through muddy backwoods during rainy season, over deep snow throughout winter, and along stretches of sandy shores during summer. It’s a looker, too, with a minimalist aesthetic that should keep you looking sleek on the road all year round.
Powered by a 500-watt electric motor, the XTerrain500 can hit speeds of up to 20 mph using an intelligent pedal-assist system, with the onboard Samsung battery providing a 20-mile range. It’s equipped with a standard Kenda Juggernaut 4.5-inch fat tire in the rear and an ATV tire measuring 10 inches wide out front (the fork can also accommodate a standard fat tire, though). Features include an aluminum alloy frame, fork, and handlebars, six-speed Shimano gear, mechanical disc brakes, and RockShox front suspension, so this should handle off-road riding in a capable manner. It comes with an LED readout mounted on the handlebars for monitoring battery levels.
Available now, the XTerrain500 Electric Bicycle is priced at $1,600.
