Top 9 Fat Tire eBikes for 2021

Top 9 Fat Tire eBikes for 2021

Do you like to travel a different path? Maybe cruise down the beach?

Do you simply love biking and would like to extend your riding season? 

Fat tire ebikes might be perfect for you. These rugged and unusually looking rides are not exclusive for off-roaders anymore. Electric fat tire bikes are all the rage as more and more riders realize their versatility and practicality in almost any weather or situation.

Aside from having great off-road performance, fat tire ebikes are probably among the best for daily riding. Fat tires usually create more traction compared to a regular bike tire but if you pump the tires up a lot there will be less surface of the tire touching the pavement. The motor helps too, you can use pedal assist or the throttle so you don't experience the traction as resistance.

If your daily commute means having to travel over rough roads, you should really try a fat tire electric bike.

There are plenty of fat tire ebikes models out there. Make sure to pick one that suits your needs. Here are the best models out there, and the list has just been updated to include a new entry.  Here they are:

    The Storm is built by the same guys that make the Mule so that’s already a guarantee.

    The Storm by BAKCOU comes in either 750 watt or 1000 watt, both versions are the Bafang Ultra mid drive so you get the best motor there is.  The Storm is also (the only one one the list).  It’s built for extreme terrain and .  It’s very agile and can go pretty much anywhere.

    The Super Monarch Crown AWD 1500 by E-Cells

     

    Why is the E-Cells All Wheel Drive eBike on the list?

    What’s better than one motor? Two motors!

    What’s better than one battery? Two batteries!

    What’s better than front suspension? Full suspension! 

    The Super Monarch Crown AWD 1500 watt fat tire ebike is raw power and lots of it.

    Packed out with dual batteries for extra range and 2 hub motors, one front and one rear for unparalleled traction.  And you can switch between the motors so you can choose to cruise with the rear only or get 170Nm or traction by using both at the same time.  

    A nice benefit of having hub motors if the bike chain snaps under tension the mid drive bike is disabled but since the hub motors rotate the wheels without the need for a chain, you can still operate the bike and get safely back to camp by using the throttle.

    Why it made the list:

    • Dual Motor gives awesome traction
    • Dual batteries for plenty of range
    • And since the motors on it are individually 750 watt, it still falls under the Class 2 ebike and so is allowed anywhere a Class 2 ebike can go.

    Hi. I have a delivery business, we use bikes as our source of transportation. However we are in need of more bikes. So I was asking if would the company be willing to sponsor us?

    In response to Karin:
    I have owned both mid and hub drive. If you are a cyclist, accustomed to pedaling non-ebikes, I think you will prefer mid drive and happy you spent the extra $$. Mid drive feels much more like a regular bike and therefore won’t be so much of an adjustment. It took me a while to realize how much control of a bike is through your feet. On a hub drive bike, much of that feeling is lost or delayed. for instance, unweighting the seat over bumps while pedaling. This is really noticeable in rugged terrain, or on bumpy streets.

    Is the mid drive on a fat tire e bike really worth the extra cost that seems associated with it? Ill be using the bike in a variety of ways: around town on roads and paved bike paths, dirt roads with rolling hills and a few very steep hills, and snowshoe & hiking trails in the winter. I’m very interested in the Bam Nomad Supreme. It seems to have so many features – just no mid drive

    Hi Oliver,
    thanks for the question. The Pedego Trail Edition is really doesn’t compare. it’s a 500 watt rear hub motor and no front suspension. Other brands send similar spec’d bike for $1500 but the Pedego is almost $4K. At $4K you should at least be getting a mid drive so you can climb hills and a front suspension.

    I’m surprised the Pedego Trail Tracker didn’t make the list. It’s definitely a higher end premium fat tire electric decked out with great components, battery and drive specs.
