A Detailed Review Of QuietKat APEX E-Bike

Construction

  • The E-bike’s frame is solid and can easily handle rough terrains. This allows the APEX to easily resist daily wear and tear of the back country and withstand rough weather conditions. 
  • The aluminum body is resistant to rust and early decay. Aluminum is also lighter in weight as compared to other materials, making it easier to carry and travel with.

  • People who are under 5ft 6 inches should go with the small frame size, while those between 5ft 6 inches and 6 ft should pick the medium frame size. Choosing the right size will allow you to sit upright and move your knees comfortably.

Motor Size

  • This E-bike comes in 2 motor sizes. A 750-watt or a 1000-watt unrestricted motor providing riders with a chance to utilize maximum torque and power. If you are an adventure enthusiast and need maximum torque and speed, then the 1000-watt QuietKat Apex E-bike is thr better option.

Tires

  • QuietKat Apex E-bike has two 26″ x 4.5″ AT fat tires to explore all terrains, from snowy hills to soft sand and rocks. 
  • These tires are well suited for all terrains, and if you want a softer ride you can ride with the tire pressure a little less than recommended pressure. The 4.5” tires offer more grip against rough terrains and make your ride easier no matter the location.

What Do We Love About The QuietKat Apex E-bike?

We love the QuietKat Apex E-bike because it is one of the most suitable E-bikes to explore the backcountry and enjoy multiple terrains. The Apex comes with premium components and a premium price, but it is the perfect E-bike to explore, hunt and even fish. Here are some of the features that we loved:

  • It’s a solid E-bike with premium components.
  • Can explore areas with stealth unlike a side by side or four wheeler 
  • Comes in three different colors, so you can pick the one you like most. 
  • Walking feature allows easy walking through sand or dirt and easy loading in trucks.. 
  • For a 1000w mid-drive E-Bike it only weighs 70 lbs and has awesome towing capabilities 
  • It comes with a built-in welded rear rack and you can upgrade to a more comfortable wider adjustable seat (We should have upgraded!)

Performance Review

Biking is one of the most adventurous ways to explore the backcountry. It is exciting and thrilling. E-bikes are a modern form of biking that offers a more comfortable experience. We had the chance to ride the QuietKat Apex E-bike, and here is our verdict. 

The QuietKat Apex E-bike is an advanced E-bike with a strong and intuitively designed frame for added comfort, maximum handling, and a beautiful look.

  • The Aluminum Frame is lightweight, rust-free, and long-lasting. It has a rigid construction to support your weight, carry gear or haul heavy loads. 
  • The Wheels are wide, strong and well-built to let you ride through steep hills covered in snow, mud or sand.

The different modes and 9 gears will allow you to find your comfort zone through all types of terrain. Using only throttle (No Pedaling) we were able to get up to a max of 30-31 mph. Had we helped by pedaling we could have easily reached 35-40 mph.

Riding the QuietKat Apex E-bike is extremely easy. You’ll find it easier than riding your manual bike. When you select the QuietKat Apex E-bike as per your height allows you to sit and ride comfortably.It’s so comfortable that you can ride it for hours without feeling backache or pressure on your shoulder.

  • The Seat that comes on the Apex is nice, but we prefer a wider, more comfortable seat when riding. QuietKat does offer a couple different seat options to suit your needs.
  • The QuietKat Apex has exceptional Hydraulic Disk Brakes supporting front and back tires. These brakes give the E-bike awesome stopping power. We tested the brakes by taking our average over 5 test. Each attempt at 14-16 mph we were able to stop within 4-6 ft. Leaving us confident riders can ride through steep hills or rough terrains safely.

The Display has a nice large full color screen that’s easy to navigate even while riding. The toggle allows you to quickly switch the mode, speed, time, battery percentage, and your trip. This allows riders to stay informed about their E-bike’s status at all times.

  • One of the Best features of the QuietKat Apex E-bike is its powerful and Quiet Motor. It doesn’t make the typical sound a lot of E-bikes make, giving its rider a very pleasant and stealthy riding.

The quiet motor feature is very helpful when you are out hunting, fishing or even just exploring the wildlife.

  • The QuietKat Apex E-bike comes with a Waterproof Battery System that can easily be swapped out for added range. The battery is powerful, long-lasting and at optimum speed, can last for hours.

On our range test we were able to achieve 48-50 miles on a full charge! We were using mostly throttle and were usually in pedal assist mode 3 and 4. If you are exploring, hauling gear or covering a long distance, you can also charge the battery using a portable solar-powered E-bike charging station. 

The maintenance and cleaning of your QuietKat Apex E-bike is very easy. You can do it yourself at home without needing professional help. The manufacturer offers lifetime customer service in the USA and ALOT of videos on their site for help.
