Electric bicycles are great alternatives to urban transport and usually much more affordable than any electric motorcycle. In times of pandemic, they have seen a growth in sales that has not happened before in history.

Many e-bike manufacturers are focusing on aesthetics and futuristic designs to stand out in the crowded electric bike market. But instead of relying on a design that is as eye-catching as possible, a Canadian company Biktrix Electric Bikes has launched an entire line up of high-power Juggernaut e-bikes, which should be suitable particularly for long distances.

In total, Biktrix plans to release four Juggernaut Duo models – the base model of the same name (Juggernaut Duo), Juggernaut Duo mid-motor, Juggernaut HD Duo, and Juggernaut HD + torque sensor. The bikes feature 4.8-inch thick Fat Tires suitable for off-road use, powerful motor options, front suspension, integrated LED lighting options, and the ability to add a second battery for super-long-range riding. It has already installed mudguards, a luggage rack, a sprung front fork, and front and rear lights. Hydraulic disc brakes are also available.

The first two versions are equipped with a 750 W Bafang BBS02 mid-drive motor that boosts torque from 80 to 120 Nm. The Juggernaut HD Duo already offers a 1000W mid-drive motor that puts out a whopping 160 Nm of torque and should therefore be suitable for slopes and off-road terrain. The Juggernaut Duo’s maximum speed with the motor upgrade is 35 mph (55 km/h), while the lower end model Juggernaut Duo has a top speed of 24 mph (38 km/h), with which the bike can also be used legally in Europe.

The energy storage system is divided into two separate batteries: a 910 Wh battery and an 1118 Wh battery. A combined 2,000 Wh of battery promises a whopping 200-mile (320 km) range. A test run from Philadelphia to New York – a distance of around 160 km – was covered in five hours. Due to the speed limit in Europe, such a journey should take longer.

Juggernaut e-bikes can currently be pre-ordered from its Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign. The Duo with a motor limited to 750 watts is available for $1399. The version, which can be adjusted to 1,000 watts, costs $2799. Delivery of the e-bike is scheduled to start in March 2021.
