Are you the prospective e-bike rider googling terms like 'fastest e-bike', ' most powerful e-bike' or 'longest range e-bike'? Are you a self-proclaimed adrenaline junkie that not only wants a super speedy ride, but also wants the best of the best, along with stylish good looks to keep heads turning? If so, then you've probably already discovered the HyperScrambler 2 and the Super73 RX. Both have taken performance, speed, and e-bike capabilities to a higher level and are a fantastic alternative to replacing car miles.
With all of the similarities between these two powerhouse e-bikes, there are still a number of differences between them, beginning with one key metric: RIDING RANGE. When you want to leave the car behind but you still need to run errands, get to work and back, maybe give someone a ride to school or just cruise around worry-free, it’s tough to beat the range and power of the HyperScrambler 2.
The Juiced Bikes HyperScrambler 2 has a “2” in the name for a good reason: It includes two batteries – two big 52 volt 19.2 Amp-hour batteries for a total of almost 2,000 Watt-hours versus the 960 Watt-hour capacity of the $3,695 Super73 RX. With a range of over 100 miles, the HyperScrambler has the capability to check off all of your errands with plenty of power left over for some fun riding time. The competition comes in at only 40+ miles of range.
Both bikes are fast enough to mix with urban auto traffic, even if there is no bike lane, and that presents a new set of challenges for riders. Both bikes have LED headlights and tail lights, but the HyperScrambler 2 comes fully loaded with integrated brake light, turn signals, a LOUD horn instead of a bell, and a multi-function headlight with a halo for daylight riding and both low and high beams for night riding. Two mirrors are also included for safer riding and a (VERY loud) alarm system for added security. With all of these features you’d typically expect the bike to cost more, but it costs $200 less than the competition. Now that’s worth celebrating!
The HyperScrambler 2 also gives riders more options when it comes to pedaling. Instead of a single gear that’s on the competition, the HyperScrambler 2 includes an 8-speed gear set out back, giving riders more leverage heading up a hill – and more speed from the assist system heading back down. And instead of just a cadence sensor that comes on many basic e-bikes, the HyperScrambler 2 adds a torque sensor to better match motor output to your pedaling output for smoother, more predictable engagement from the motor while you pedal. The HyperScrambler 2 offers riders the choice of how they ride with pedal assist modes and throttle operation with a moped-like twist grip on the right handgrip.
E-bikes with the power and range of the HyperScrambler 2 need solid braking power and fine-tuned road-holding ability to match their speed potential. The Scrambler features powerful hydraulic disc brakes and full suspension with an adjustable front fork and adjustable twin rear shock absorbers that feature a range of preload settings for hauling heavy loads, a passenger, or for conquering any terrain. It really can do it all. Road-oriented 20-inch tires give great grip on pavement while the 4-inch width allows riders to wander off down an interesting gravel path or forest road.
Bottom line: As more people hop on e-bikes to reduce their pain at the pump or just want to get around in a more environmentally friendly (and fun!) manner, there isn’t much competition in the high-power and high-performance category. The HyperScrambler 2 has the power, speed, range and upgraded features to make those longer rides a reality.
Will your car ever forgive you?
