A very powerful all-terrain e-bike, the Explore EX750 can haul up to 350 lbs (including rider) up even the steepest of mountainsides.
Core to the e-bike system is the Bafang ULTRA mid-drive motor. With up to 1,500 watts of peak power, this cutting-edge motor can throw out as much as 160 Nm of torque — a full 90 Nm more than the leading Bosch mid-drive motor.
Though this e-bike is rated at 1,000W, it can run at 750W of power, making it street-legal within the three-class e-bike system if it’s enforced in your state. In street legal mode, the throttle will take you up to 20 mph — in unlimited mode, far faster, but it’s best to do this out of sight of law enforcement.
For comfort, the Explore EX750 has a 150mm travel MTNBEX inverted air suspension fork that’ll soak up even the hardest drops on the front wheel. Rounding this off are the 4.25” VBE fat tires that are designed for serious off-road use.
Able to haul up to 350 lbs including 100 lbs on the rear rack, this adventure bike will get you far out in the sticks to hunt or just enjoy the solitude far from the busy streets. The stated range is 60 miles, but in realistic riding with a medium load, you could plan for a 20-mile radius of travel — more than five hours on foot that you might cover in two.
Reasons to Buy
At this price point, you’ll find few overlanding e-bikes capable of as high a payload. That makes the Explore EX750 well suited to those who plan to go hunting or wilderness camping thanks to the amount of gear you can take with you over a very reasonable distance.
This e-bike also comes with four distinct modes — Eco, Sport, Throttle, and Walk — that’ll help you conserve power depending on what you’re doing.
Things to Consider
At 83 lbs, this isn’t a lightweight mountain goat of an e-bike — rather more of a caribou that lumbers through the countryside. The weight could impact maneuvering as you try to adjust your weight to get around and over obstacles.
Thanks to power coming from the pedal crank, using the throttle could shorten the life of the chain considerably. Either carry a spare or check for stretch regularly, as you may have to switch to a new chain every 500 or so miles.
