Rambo Rebel ST: $5,499 The Ultimate Hunting Electric Bike for Rugged Terrain!
The Rambo Rebel ST is the latest model from Rambo Bikes and it’s exactly what you’d think it would be–a sleek design, robust performance, and versatile functionality. The step-thru frame makes it easy to hop on and off, the fat tires unlock off-road capabilities, and the integrated battery seals the deal that makes this one of the raddest hunting bikes around. Whether you're actually looking for a hunting Ebike or just a reliable ride for cruising around town, the Rebel ST is a great option to consider.
Alright! let's talk about the heart of the Rambo Rebel ST electric bike: the motor. This outdoor voyager is powered by a 1000-watt Bafang BBSHD mid-drive motor. This powerhouse has a peak power rating of 1500W and a maximum torque of 160 N.m. The explosive force when taking off is reminiscent of a Nasa-fueled rocket. Luckily it doesn’t actually lift you into the stratosphere, but maybe the Rambo guys are working on that space-traveling model as we speak. When it comes to speed, the Rambo Rebel ST can reach up to 28 miles per hour, which makes it a Class 3 electric bike. The bike is equipped with a thumb throttle and cadence-sensing pedal assist, allowing you to ride with or without pedaling. It would be cool to see an upgraded mid-drive with torque sensor capabilities, but this is by no means a knock against the current setup.
The Rambo Rebel ST is equipped with a 48V, 21Ah battery which is semi-integrated into the frame. With 1,008 Wh of capacity, you should be able to easily get the advertised max range of 48 miles per charge. Now, when it comes to real-world range, it's always a bit tricky to say for sure. It depends on factors like your weight, the terrain you're riding on, and how much pedal assist you're using, but based on similar capacity batteries and setups, the stated max range should be fairly accurate! We love to see that truth in advertising! Additionally, the battery has a USB port, that can be used to charge your devices on the go.
Moving on to the frame, the Rambo Rebel ST has a low-step Aluminum Alloy 6061 frame, which is both lightweight and durable. The frame has a weight limit of 300 pounds, a standover height of 31 inches, and a reach of 15 inches. The standover height is still a bit on the higher side, but the reach makes it very accessible to most riders. The bike also has attachments for a front basket and a rear rack, which means you could load this bike up with quite a few groceries or necessities…or deer. Again, depends on the use case.
The Rambo Rebel ST comes with an inverted front fork suspension. Not only does it look awesome, but it also has other benefits, such as 120mm of travel, and a better connection point to the frame, making them stronger and allowing for better trail feedback. The suspension is adjustable with a preload option, which makes it perfect for riders who want to fine-tune their ride. The saddle is pretty standard, nothing too wide, but not too thin either, right there in the middle. For most people, it's comfortable enough, but for those who want an even cushier ride, a seat post-suspension might be a worthwhile upgrade to check out.
When it comes to stopping power, Rambo is not messing around. The Rebel ST comes equipped with Tektro 4-Piston Hydraulic brakes that are designed to keep you safe and in control no matter the weather. These brakes offer more stopping power than traditional mechanical disc brakes, so you can ride with confidence knowing that you have some of the best brakes on the market. So, whether you're out hunting or just exploring the great outdoors, you can feel secure knowing that the Rambo Rebel ST's brakes are there to stop you if that cliff pops out of nowhere.
The Rambo Rebel ST is equipped with an 11-speed drivetrain. This is a setup that's sure to make you feel like a true mountain biker, with a wide range of gears to tackle steep inclines and rougher terrain. But don't worry, the Rebel ST's drivetrain is still easy to use and maintain, so you can focus on the hunt and not on your gears. And with the Bafang 1000w High Torque Mid-Drive motor, you'll have tons of options for efficiently climbing a mountain, or whipping through a service road.
