Pedego has released an electric "fatbike" mountain bike, known as the Trail Tracker
The Trail Tracker’s price isn’t much more than that of higher-end human-powered fatbikes, at US$2,975
The Trail Tracker is either pedaled without any electrical assistance, or is run by motor power only, like a slimmed-down electric motorcycle
Power is stored in a 48-volt 10Ah lithium-ion battery, and delivered through a 600-watt high-torque brushless geared hub motor
The Trail Tracker is available in matte black, gloss black, red or yellow
The Trail Tracker tips the scales at 62 pounds (28 kg)
If you’ve ever tried mountain biking through loose snow or sand, then you’ll know that even big ol’ 2.75-inch tires have a way of sinking in and bogging down. That’s why some bicycle manufacturers have recently started making what are known as fatbikes – rigid-frame mountain bikes with 4-inch or larger tires, that can be run as low as 8 psi (0.6 bar). They’re sort of like bikes with snowshoes. Now, California-based Pedego has released an electric fatbike, called the Trail Tracker.
