The Civi Bikes Rebel 1.0 comes equipped with a high speed 500-Watts BAFANG motor, specially built for fat tire bike, which provides enough torque (80NM) to help you climb any steep and can go up to 40 miles per charge.
The 48V 13Ah (624Wh) Samsung™ Li-ion is a reliable brand that you can count on for high-quality and long-lasting performance.
With a max speed of 20mph and both throttle and pedal assist, this is a Class 2 electric bike.
The Rebel 1.0 has rigid aluminum front fork making it very light weight and providing easy steering.
The eye-catching 4" fat tires help absorb major bumps and shocks on road while providing extra traction.
The Rebel 1.0 is the perfect bike throw in your trunk and go exploring over any terrain whether hilly, wooded, sandy, or otherwise.
