1. The first thing you should know about electric fat tire bikes is that they will stay and continue to develop and optimize.

Some people think that the rise of electric bikes is a threat. It seems that once everyone gets on an electric bike, standard bikes will become a penny. But do n’t worry: electric bikes are not here to rob our human lifestyle. In fact, they might enhance it very well.

2. Tire

Compared with traditional bicycle tires, electric fat tire bikes are veritable "fat". Yes, that sounds interesting. Although huge 4 "wide tires cause additional weight and increased rolling resistance, riding is not as difficult as imagined. With the puncture resistance, 4" wide tires also run at lower pressures, making them be able to drive on the beach and snow.

Incredible? Try to ride Himiway! 26 "x4" Kenda fat tires provide improved grip and traction on the most troublesome terrain. It is designed to decrease the cumulated pressure of the bike and biker by adding extra contact surface. It makes a good impression even when the ground is covered in snow. The Kenda K-shield technology and reflective sidewall striping add durability and safety.

Whether it tears sand dunes or rushes snow, there is no doubt that electric fat tire bikes can go almost anywhere!

3. The center of electric fat tire bikes-Motor

Many people like electric fat tire bikes because they are very interesting, especially equipped with powerful electric motors to help you!

Most fat tire bikes use geared hub motors. These are generally available for power output up to 1500w.

Hub motors are usually very reliable and easy to repair if something goes wrong. The success of the hub motor is due to its simplicity.

4. Brake system

Almost all electric fat tire bicycles have mechanical or hydraulic disc brakes. Both of them have their advantages and disadvantages. Mechanical disc brakes use cable-operated calipers and generally have less bite and modulation than hydraulic brakes. Hydraulic brakes are great and can produce excellent braking effects, but they are prone to brake discoloration during extreme braking. Himiway uses 180mm Mechanical Disc Brakes.

The front and rear 180mm mechanical disc brakes provide you with strong stopping power even in loose and/or wet terrain.

5. Pedal-assist

In general, an electric fat tire bike is a bicycle with a battery-driven assist. When you step on the pedal to power the pedal on an electric bicycle, a small electric motor will engage and assist you, which is realized by pedal-assist or accelerator, so you can sail on steep mountainous terrain without effort. It just feels like traditional bicycles, but they feel better. You can control the speed with your feet, just like riding an ordinary bicycle.

6. Battery

The battery is one of the most important components of an electric bike. The type and capacity of a battery you install will determine the range of your bicycle. It depends on many factors. It will depend on the power level, cyclist weight, wind direction and terrain in our life. Generally, the greater the power generated by the motor, the higher the battery energy capacity is required. The Himiway Cruiser is equipped with a Samsung/LG 48v 17.5Ah battery to ensure a long life span and high performance. Our long-range is over 60 miles per charge on pedal-assist mode and around 35 miles on pure electric power mode. We offer a 2- year warranty on batteries. Oh, that sounds great!

Some people will say that, high-quality electric bicycles are not cheap compared to traditional unassisted bicycles. That's right! You can choose a very basic model, but how long will you be satisfied? Ordinary bicycles with high-quality frames, excellent brakes, suspensions, and other components are also expensive. When you buy an electric fat tire bike, you need to spend more money on the electric motor. Therefore, don't be surprised by the price, not to mention, a cost-effective electric bike will surprise you even more!
