With gas prices escalating to historic (and painful) highs, the sky-rocketing demand for e-bikes has sent even more Americans online looking for an efficient and practical transportation alternative. And with so many electric bikes now available in the direct-to-consumer channel, comparing stats, value propositions, and specs can be an overwhelming task. In this series, we will show you how Juiced Bikes measures up to the competition.
Keep in mind, there is a reason other top e-bike brands don't compare their specs to Juiced Bikes. We don't mean to brag, but when you compare key performance features on the top e-bikes in the market, the winner is crystal clear. Juiced consistently delivers the biggest batteries, most powerful motors, and most upgraded components in their class. So, before you jump on the bandwagon and simply buy the same brand that your neighbor might own, we encourage you to take a closer look at how the key models in each category really stack up against each other.
Since its introduction in 2018, the RipCurrent S has set the bar for fat-tire adventure e-bikes. Recently, we took this model to an even higher level - adding a larger motor and a new battery system. Let’s look at how the NEW RipCurrent S compares to a popular competitor in the fat-tire e-bike segment:
Bigger Battery = More Riding Range
The new RipCurrent S has over 30% more watt-hours/battery power. Why does that matter? The greater the battery size (the more watt-hours) = more battery power and more riding range for you. Choosing an e-bike with the most updated battery technology and range is vital! The NEW RipCurrent S has the industry beat when it comes to technology and power.
Featuring our NEW G2 52V/19.2Ah battery pack, the RipCurrent S can ride for 70+ miles on a SINGLE CHARGE! The G2 battery also has added security features, an easy-to-use handle, and a more water-resistant design. The Rad Rover 6 Plus has a smaller 48 Volt battery, with a range varying from 25-45 miles depending on how you ride and conditions. Don’t let range anxiety control how you ride, the RipCurrent S easily beats the range on the RadRover 6 Plus, which lists 300 less watt-hours than the G2 52V 19.2Ah battery.
Faster & More Powerful!
With a larger motor, the RipCurrent S offers more speed, more torque, and more acceleration compared to the competition. A larger 1000W motor can help reach pedal speeds over 28 mph and conquer hills with ease!
Most competitors list a 750W motor and speeds are limited to 20mph. So, if you are looking for a fat-tire fun e-bike and have a need for speed, the RipCurrent S is the one for you.
Fully Loaded: The Most Bang for Your Buck!
It’s easy to see who comes out on top when it comes to getting maximum e-bike value! The RipCurrent S is equipped with an upgraded cargo rack, upgraded suspension system, combined torque/cadence pedal-assist technology, 9-speed transmission, and more! Many other e-bike brands offer great accessories, but always for an extra fee and these items (most of which come standard on the RipCurrent S) can add up quickly.
