QuietKat, an all-electric mountain bike manufacturer, has partnered up with Jeep to provide a rugged performance machine that aims to help riders conquer all types of terrain.

The Jeep e-Bike is a full suspension electric mountain bike boasting a 26-inch x 4.8-inch fat-tyre platform designed to easily tackle a variety of technical, off-road terrain including soft sand and snow, as well as hardpack trails and rocks.

The Fire-Link suspension system provides traction and capability while four piston hydraulic disc brakes allow for control on steep descents and hard-to-navigate landscape.

The 10-speed electronic bike comes standard with a BAFANG Ultra-Drive 750 Watt motor, packing a powerful 150 Watts at peak performance and is configurable as a Class 1 or 2 electric bicycle.

It weighs in at 79 pounds, more than double the weight of a normal competition downhill bike. A limited supply will be available from September.

QuietKat’s bikes are environmentally-friendly as they are driven by powerful Lithium-ion batteries for green, non-polluting and silent operations.
