QuietKat

QuietKat

QUIETKAT is more than just another e-bike company. Instead, QUIETKAT is a leader in outdoor e-bikes, the number one company in the united states with retail partnerships placing their bikes in front of thousands of customers every day. Since its inception in 2012, the Roach brothers, Justin and Jake, wanted to create the quietest outdoor transport on the market. From their home in Eagle, Colorado, they designed and fabricated their first e-bikes. Justin and Jake were tired of the ATVs, ORVs, and UTVs that were becoming the norm for backcountry exploring. The combustion-powered rigs were too noisy not to spook game, too bulky to fit on some of the mountain trails the brothers adventured to. Most importantly, gas engine vehicles were not permitted to operate in large swaths of the backcountry.

The QUIETKAT solved those drawbacks for Jake and Justin. Able to silently power through even the narrowest trails, their Ebikes were an instant hit. QUIETKAT was such a sensation that in 2021 VISTA outdoor company, whose holdings include brands like FOX racing, Camelback, and Federal Ammunition, acquired QUIETKAT. The brothers still run the company out of Eagle and now have the brand power to put their bikes in shops from mom and pops to Cabelas.

Now that you know a little about who QUIETKAT is, it’s time to learn about their product lineup. QUIETKAT is best known for e-bikes, but riders should also recognize them for their accessories for bikes and tow-alongs.

IBEX E-Bike

The animal Ibex is a lightweight, agile species of antelope that spends its life in rocky mountain terrain. The Ibex from QUIETKAT deserves the name. With a rear link giving 130mm of travel paired with the 140mm from the front fork, there is no terrain too rough for this bike. Powered by the Bafang Ultra-Drive 1000 and 21AH/48V battery, the Ibex is capable of ranges of more than 60 miles. The 9-speed drivetrain features an 11-42T cassette for maximum torque range, perfect for tackling steep hills, while the 4-Piston Tektro brakes will give you reassurance to stop on the way down.

APEX E-BIKE

The Apex is the choice for user customization. Riders can select the powerful 1000Watt mid-drive motor or the 750watt hub drive that allows it to fall under class 1,2 guidelines. The adjustable gearbox allows riders to select from one of nine ratios, ideal for hauling heavy loads. The Apex has one of the highest load weights of any e-bike at a healthy 325lbs. The Apex’s high weight capacity allows campers to haul plenty of gear or hunters to haul a treestand and, hopefully, a successful harvest. To accommodate riders of different sizes, the Apex comes in three sizes, small for riders under 5’6”, medium for riders under 6’, and large for riders over 6’.

PIONEER E-BIKE

The Pioneer is QUIETKAT’s base model. We don’t mean that as a dig at the Pioneer. Its AK47-level simplicity and price point of this bike are fantastic features. The single-gear hub motor generates the power you need to reach whatever trout stream, backwoods campsite, or deer blind you need to get to. The whole rig was designed to be as easy to maintain as possible, and with the option of a larger 750 Watt motor, you can get there and back without a worry. Speaking of deer blinds, QUIETKAT paired up with Bushnell: one of its brand partners, to bring you the Pioneer x Bushnell Bundle. Hunters who purchase this bundle will get the QuietKat 750-Watt Pioneer E-Bike, along with distance with Bushnell Fusion X 10×42 Rangefinding Binoculars, Prime 1800 Rangefinder, Prime L20 Low Glow Trail Cameras, and a Backtrack Mini GPS. All said and done, that’s over a thousand dollars in savings compared to buying it all separately!

Hauling Gear & Accessories

As mentioned previously, QUIETKAT doesn’t just make bikes. Many of their accessories are designed to give riders the options to keep gear organized and easily carried on the trail.

The Waterproof Pannier Bag is a perfect soft-sided “saddlebag” for any pannier-equipped e-bike. With 3,300 cubic cm of storage, you can carry plenty of gear with tie-downs or straps. Yes, for those who are unsure, QUIETKAT makes pannier racks for all models.

QUIETKAT CARGO TRAILER – SINGLE WHEEL

If the pannier and side bags aren’t enough storage, or if you want to haul a cooler, the cargo trailer is the solution. The single-wheel tow behind allows riders to strap a 14″x 24”cooler to the flat surface, plus attach additional pannier bags. With a carrying capacity of 100lbs, there’s enough for a whole family’s worth of gear.

QUIETKAT GAME TRAILER – TWO WHEEL 

For riders looking to haul bulky items like firewood, groceries, or a whole whitetail, the two-wheel game trailer is the tow behind to consider. The two-wheel design offers maximum stability and a large flat surface to strap gear to. The rear half of the cart can be angled up or flat, depending on how you want to carry your gear. With a singular attachment point at the bike’s rear axle, dropping the cart takes seconds.

Transport Gear

While we all wish that adventure was right out our back doors, the truth is many of us need to drive to the wilderness before we can start our adventure. Solid frame Ebikes are not the easiest to transport for most riders. Luckily QUIETKAT manufactures several vehicle accessories to make getting your bike to the wild that much easier.

QK 1UP Bike Rack With Fat Tire Kit

Mounting this bike rack to your trailer hitch is a simple task. The 1UP locks wheels without touching the frame to keep the bike secure during your trip. The 1UP is also available in double and triple bike configurations so that you can bring the whole crew’s bikes.

If you have a lifted vehicle or want to work more efficiently, the 1UP USA V Style Ramp is an excellent addition to your rack. Instead of lifting the bikes onto the rack, you can wheel bikes up with the quick connect ramp instead of lifting them onto the rack. After a long day riding a ramp will be money well spent.
