Produced in Lakeville, Minnesota, like all Rambo Electric bikes, the Rambo Megatron fat tire electric hunting bike is sure to surpass your expectations with its performance and quality.
The one downside to the Megatron is its steep price tag, however, to get the type of performance that it offers you must be willing to spend a good amount of money, and we believe it is worth what you will pay. Although here at Mountain Bikes Lab we always try to give you objective information about bikes with the Rambo Megatron it is difficult to contain our excitement about such a high quality electric bike.
Dual 1000 Watt Motors
For the first time ever, the Rambo Megatron electric hunting bike comes to the market as the first Rambo bike to feature dual Bafang 1000 watt motors, giving riders peak power of up to 3000 watts. Traditional electric hunting bikes have either a rear hub motor, similar to a motorcycle, or a mid-drive motor, which is encased inside the frame near the pedals.
The Rambo Megatron however has both a rear hub, and a front hub motor, giving the rider access to all wheel drive on their electric bike. Ideal for rugged or rocky terrain where both wheels may not be touching the ground at the same time, the dual Bafang motors supply excellent power to both wheels. With this level of power you will be able to climb steep hills, scale rocky mountains, plow through snow, and glide across sand without problem. Additionally, with just a push of a button you can switch from front wheel, to rear wheel, to all-wheel drive, which is a huge plus for serious riders. Being able to switch the type of drive your bike is in is crucial to saving power, and extending your biking range.
One of the most important features of a hunting bikes is its power. When hunting you’re going to be going trekking in with up to 60lbs of gear, and hopefully trekking out with even more, if you’re successful. Having an electric bike that is not only built for rugged terrain, but one that has the ability to power through that terrain even with a heavy load is especially important. The Dual 1000 watt motors of the Rambo Megatron electric hunting bike makes all these issues non-existent, giving you peace of mind knowing that you will be able to easily haul out all your gear, and anything else you might find during your trip. Designed for the outdoor hunter who is looking to get out into the wild, the Megatron has powerful dual motors that are built specifically for sustained, high power output.
Samsung Dual 17 Amp Hour Lithium Ion Battery
Like its dual motors, the dual lithium-ion batteries of the Rambo Megatron electric hunting bike provide users with unparalleled range and consistency. Most electric hunting bikes have an electric range of around 25 miles, with dual Samsung lithium ion battery’s powering your new electric hunting bike you will have an effective electric range of up to 80 miles. Combine this with the increased range that you can achieve by pedaling and you are sure to be able to get anywhere you need on the Megatron.
Integrated directly onto the frame of the bike, these dual 17 amp hour batteries provide a total of 34 amp hours, and a range of 80 miles. We have been in the biking space a long time and know how important it is to verify advertised values. After testing numerous different batteries for electric bikes often you find that amp hours fall short of what producers claim, this is not the case for the Rambo Megatron battery however. We put the batter through six independent tests (three for each battery), and the results were just as advertised, with each battery testing within 0.3 amp hours of the advertised 17 during each test.
Maxxis Minion Fat Tires
Like the other components of the Rambo Megatron, the tires of this electric bike were chosen with the rough terrain that it will be ridden on in mind. Equip with Maxxis Minion 26” x 4.8” fat tires, the Megatron is sure to be able to conquer all but the absolute steepest and most rugged terrain you can find. These tires have a front-specific tread designed for trail riding, giving the tires maximum traction against rough terrain. Fat tires are excellent for off road riding and when used in combination with the all-wheel drive of the Megatron give the rider access to nearly any off road trails, no matter how inaccessible they might be to other bikes.
Fat tires are some of our favorite bikes and our team absolutely loves how much control the rider has. Additionally, they give extra comfort and suspension to the bike, leading to an much more enjoyable riding experience. Their added weight is their one drawback and for a traditional mountain bike this can be a major issue, however with the dual 1000 watt Bafang motors and dual lithium ion batteries of the Rambo Megatron, a extra weight from your tires will not be an issue.
Tektro Hydraulic Disc Brakes
Although Shimano is the gold standard of brake technology in the biking industry, Tektro brakes are extremely similar in terms of effectiveness, reliability and braking power. Founded in 1986 in Tiwan, Tektro has been making high quality brakes for over 30 years and is a proven commodity in the industry. The front brake of the Rambo Megatron electric hunting bike is a Tektro HD-E725 203 mm 4 piston, and the back brake is a Tektro HD-E725 180 mm 4 piston hydraulic disc brake. Hydraulic disc brakes no matter the brand are universally regarded as the best of the best in terms of brake performance and when buying a high end bike like the Rambo Megatron it is almost a requirement to have hydraulic brakes. Tektro brakes are very effect and use mineral oil as their brake fluid, however if you would like to use a different brand for your brakes they are quiet easy to switch out.
As a outdoorsman you can ask for nothing more than what the Rambo Megatron electric hunting bike provides. Although you may not be a hunter, for anyone looking to get an electric bike that can handle rugged terrain and harsh weather outdoors, the Rambo Megatron is the high-end electric bike for you. While the Rambo Megatron is quite expensive, for what you are getting, the price tag is certainly justified. Dual top of the line Bafang 1000 watt motor, dual Samsung 17 amp hour lithium ion batteries, and Tektro hydraulic disc brakes and just some of the many features of the Rambo Megatron that leave it currently sitting as one of the best electric hunting bikes in 2021.
