The Tremendous Monarch line of fat-tire journey e-bikes from E-Cells has at all times been a bit excessive relating to efficiency specs. However now the corporate has actually taken the gloves off with their latest high-powered electrical bicycle, the Tremendous Monarch Crown AWD 1500.
I do know it’s laborious to identify this almost invisible bike due to the camouflage, however look intently, as a result of there’s loads to see.
The Tremendous Monarch Crown options twin every thing: twin motors, twin batteries, twin suspension, and even twin racks.
E-Cells is pitching it as the proper off-road e-bike, and so they declare it has the efficiency to again it up.
The Tremendous Monarch Crown encompasses a pair of 52V and 1,100 W peak hub motors. I spoke with E-Cells proprietor David Cleveland in regards to the growth of the bike, and he defined that Bafang custom-built the 52V motors for E-Cells. Whereas some corporations use the usual 48V motors from Bafang and overvolt them, Bafang made modifications in these fashions, akin to altering the copper coils for larger temperatures, that allow the producer to supply a guaranty on 52V use.
With a 45A and 18 mosfet controller, these motors can put out a peak mixed energy simply north of two,300 watts.
Velocity varies based mostly on rider weight, however just about any rider ought to be capable to exceed 30 mph (48 km/h) on the Tremendous Monarch Crown. Some heavier riders have even approached 35 mph (56 km/h) in limitless mode. Nonetheless, the bike can be restricted to adjust to decrease velocity laws in varied areas.
To make sure that the excessive energy draw doesn’t deplete the battery in just a few brief minutes, the Tremendous Monarch Crown comes with a pair of batteries totaling 1,638 Wh. Every battery consists of its personal high-power 45A BMS so riders can run a single battery or each on the identical time.
A single charger with a Y-splitter is included for charging the batteries off the bike. When charging on the bike, the Tremendous Monarch Crown additionally encompasses a single parallel charging port that feeds each batteries concurrently.
Entrance suspension consists of an RST air-shock, whereas the rear shock is a RockShox Monarch RL. 4-piston Tektro Dorado hydraulic disc brakes assist carry the bike to a fast cease.
A left-side, paddle-style thumb throttle is included, however might be eliminated for areas the place throttle-powered e-bikes will not be allowed.
Heavier riders can rejoice, because the Tremendous Monarch Crown is rated for a great deal of as much as 400 lb (181 kg). The bike itself isn’t a light-weight both, tipping the scales at 95 lb (43 kg).
The worth has some heft to it as properly, with an MSRP of $4,995. Fortunately it is still on sale for $3,995. That’s undoubtedly not chump change, however remains to be inside the regular vary for high-end electrical mountain bikes.
Whereas the Tremendous Monarch Crown has a mixture of mid and high-end elements, its twin batteries and twin motors assist jack the value up larger than numerous different fats tire e-bikes.
I’ve truly gotten began testing out a brand new Tremendous Monarch Crown within the hunter camo package deal, although it can even be out there in E-Cells’ normal choices of orange, purple and black. I can see how these colours is likely to be good, as I lately laid the bike down someplace and now I can’t discover it.
Severely, although, I’ll be reporting again with a full overview in just a few weeks, however for now I can let you know that the facility when driving off-road is unbelievable and the traction that the bike offers conjures up confidence. Even in unfastened sandy trails, the huge tires and heavy weight of the bike hold it planted.
It’s virtually like the sensation of driving an ATV, aside from the entire two-wheeled factor.
Electrek readers might keep in mind that we previously spent some time on the (solely barely) lower-powered model of this bike, the Super Monarch AWD 1000. Even with only a bit much less energy, that was already a fairly superior experience. Take a look at that video beneath, then you’ll want to come again quickly for our overview of the Tremendous Monarch Crown AWD 1500!
