Merax eMTB is a lightweight, basic e-bike, that gives everything you need, on a budget. Featuring a 350W hub motor, it’s got enough power to get to the top speed of 19 mph. There are two different travel modes – PAS and full electric mode. 36V 8.8Ah Li-ion battery is conveniently placed for easy access and charging, but it is also removable and securely locked by key. It takes about 6-8 hours to fully charge, and you can expect to get up to 28 miles range out of it. Once the battery’s drained, you can pedal just like on a regular bicycle, but it is not going to be easy, as it is pretty heavy. Merax mountain bike features a 7 speed Shimano gear system, aluminum alloy frame, front fork suspension and CST Jet brand tires.
Considering the price, you should expect some flaws, but in this case they are not a deal-breaker, at least not for us. Comfort was an issue, because handles feel hard over bumps, and the seat is uncomfortable as well. However, both can be easily replaced and you can get more than a decent ride for an amazing price. If you can, take the professional assembly, it will make your life so much easier and your bike will be instantly ready to ride.
