By its nature, a hunting e-bike shouldn’t require much maintenance while it’s enduring the toughest conditions such as mud, grime and exposure to water. Resistant to rust, 6062 aluminum alloy frame and custom-developed strong structure of the frame of Rambo 1000XP G3 won’t let you down in this manner.
Looking like it’s built for the outdoors in all extents, the Rambo has a frame of 19 inch with a stand-over height of 31 inches. The frame adapts a 36T Narrow Wide chainring, RST Renegade fork suspension, Promax handlebars, and a Selle Royal saddle to make sure you have your comfort while conquering off-road trails.
The Rambo can’t be considered as lightweight, as it weighs a rough 69 pounds.
Due to the resistance and safety they provide, Fat tires are what you would expect an e-bike developed especially for hunting. The Rambo makes use of extra-wide Maxxis Minion fat tires of 26 x 4.8 inches to guarantee the ease during your ride.
The Rambo R1000XP makes use of a 1000-watt Bafang mid-drive motor, supported by pedal assist in 5 different levels and a SRAM NX derailleur of 11 gears. When a top speed of 28 mph and a carrying capacity of 300 pounds is added, the Rambo R1000XP stands out at the intersection of strong and flexible.
What is surprising is that R1000XP reached this great speed with very little sound, as quietness is essential in hunting. You see that every detail of this e-bike is custom-designed.
Great power requires great control, so the Rambo R1000XP adapts dual Tektro 4-piston hydraulic disc brakes – there are 203 mm disk rotors in the front and 180 mm ones in the back. This guarantees that your e-bike won’t overheat during the stops even during downhill rides.
Battery and range
The battery lifespan and range were amongst the most wondered topics when the hunting e-bikes first showed up at the e-bike scene. The Rambo R1000XP G3 adapts a 48V/14.5 Ah Panasonic battery which will make your e-bike go for 20 miles on a single charge during throttle-only rides.
While the digital display is there to remind you about the remaining life of the battery, you can consider carrying a spare battery in case you want to go for another 20 miles, or you can switch to one of five integrated levels of pedal assist whenever you wish to. The location of the battery pack, just on the downtube, is appropriate for keeping the balance of the e-bike.
The Rambo R1000XP offers one of the best price-to-value ratios in the market of hunting e-bikes. Within a fascinating overall design, it combines a durable, strong aluminum alloy frame, a powerful motor and great shock-absorbing fat tires. And even at its top speed of 28mph, you won’t lose control thanks to its hydraulic brakes.
The only disadvantage it might have is that it doesn’t have many advanced options according to an e-bike of this price range. It might have had more options to offer, but it’s still outstanding as it is.
