Do You Need A Dual Motor e-Bike For Electric Snow Cycling?

do you need a dual motor e bike for electric snow cycling  | Upload

If you ever thought 'I need two motors on an electric bike', you’re not alone. The rush, the challenge, the thrill of new terrain, new seasons, and new hills is quite appealing. It’s far less likely you’ve ever thought: 'I need two motors to get to work' but, in case you did, you’re also covered. With a strange combination of components and accessories, Eunorau has made an amazingly fun and somehow useful dual motor electric bike.

A Dual Motor e-Bike

Do you still have to pedal an electric bike?
Even for e-bikes that have a throttle, you'll need to pedal when going up steep hills, although you won't have to pedal hard. ... As long as the e-bike has a motor size of 750 watts or less and is programmed so that it can't go more than 20mph without pedaling, there is no need for a license.

You will have a lot of fun on this bike, ripping and throttling in the snowy field and trails. It is great to see the old trails in a new way, and breath some life into winter once again. One of the favourite aspects of electric bikes is seeing new things, new places, and breathing in the fresh air. Normally you have to ride further and further away to accomplish those things. Now it is possible to do all of them.

Hills, rocks, snow, gravel, pavement and some ice is no problem for the wide tires and dual motors. As you can imagine, the dual motors eat through the battery pretty quickly. I turned in at about 11 km (7 miles) with 1/3 battery life. None the less, for a fun-filled machine, there’s a small and important place for this unique bike.

Dual Motor e-Bikes, A Tough Nut To Crack

There has been a number of dual motor bikes in the past, sometimes from very reputable companies, but the reception has been mixed. Tried are dual motor bikes with lack-lustre performance, all of them as pedal-assist only bikes.

                                                   Do You Need A Dual Motor e-Bike For Electric Snow Cycling?

By no means am I suggesting that the FAT-AWD is an engineering marvel (far from it). But I think the pursuit of a perfect pedal-assist AWD is yet to be discovered. Slap a throttle on it, let’s go!

Are e bikes good for the environment?
Yes, electric bicycles are certainly good for the environment as they use electric power (along with human power) to push them forward. If one charges the battery using green solar power, e-bikes become 100% environmentally friendly and good for the environment.

Dual Motor e-Bike With One Throttle

Having a throttle made all the difference in the world. Getting some juice on the motors without having to pedal means faster, predictable engagement. So many mountain bike skills are left at home: gear selection, pedal placement, even balance. Having a throttle allowed me to put the seat low, use my legs for balance and make tight turns with increasing risk. The regular bike controls didn’t disappear, they just took a back seat while blasting through the snow. It really felt like a new sport, something in-between dirt biking and electric bikes.

Dual Motor e-Bike For Winter Commutes

This fat tire, dual motor, full-throttle adventure bike also has a domesticated side: a rear rack to carry light cargo, front and rear lights to stay safe and fenders to stay clean for work. If you need to commute in the loose snow, and you need a moderately cheap electric bike to do it, this very well could be the ticket.

Electric Snow Cycling 

Using the dual motor bike to access snowy trails cut-off by the elements has been  much fun. Something so amazing has been hidden for so long, and once you discover it, you want nothing more than to explore. The wide tires can access more trails based on traction, and the dual motors put the power to those tires enabling climbs in slippery conditions.

Do electric bikes help uphill?
It normal that after every uphill, there is always a downhill. With regenerative braking, the battery's life can be extended when going downhill so that the electric bike can travel more distance. In a nutshell, the electric bike can simply generate back some of the energy that was expended on going uphill.

A Cheap Dual Motor e-Bike, Right On The Money

Eunorau makes no bones about their operation; Chinese import bikes with a touch of service and good prices. The FAT-AWD is priced at € 1,543, ($1,699), which is not all that bad. The mechanical components aren’t the greatest, and the overall design isn’t winning any awards, but if this bike were priced too high, it would be a tough sell.

E-Bike snow FAT-AWD

For someone who has enough money for a stable of electric bikes, with a variety of uses, this would be a great addition. If you’re looking for an all-out winter wonder machine, this would be a great contender. A fully equipped bike for active snowing conditions?

Before you go!

I'm especially interested in new Hydrogen techniques. I'm convinced that - in the near future - Hydrogen will surpass the development of solar or wind as alternative energy source. Safety concerns will find a solution and Hydrogen will be applied massively in all forms of transportation.
