KKBike K26 S: Electric fat bike with full suspension and an affordable price tag launches
Even in the age of e-bikes, so-called fat bikes are arguably the most eye-catching electric bicycles on public roads due to their bulky tires. This specific type of e-bike appears to be rather popular in the United States, which is why another manufacturer has now entered this profitable market segment with a new and fairly affordable e-bike.
According to an article by Electrek, KKBike has recently unveiled its new e-bike called the ‘K26 S’. In addition to the 26-inch wheels with the expectedly thick tires, the electric fat bike is equipped with a full suspension that should provide a particularly smooth ride. The e-bike is further equipped with a Bafang motor with a continuous power output of 750 watts and 85 Nm of torque. At its peak, the e-bike drivetrain can deliver up to 1,200 watts and a top speed of 30 mph. The 48-volt battery of the KKBike K26 S is made by LG, and its 840 Wh of capacity result in a projected range of 40 to 70 miles per charge.
The KKBike K26 S e-bike further sports a 8-speed Shimano groupset, hydraulic disc brakes as well as LED lights and a large handlebar-mounted LCD display. In the US, the new e-bike starts at US$1,999 including free shipping, but early adopters can get an additional US$100 discount by applying the coupon code “K26S”. All in all, this price tag seems to be quite competitive since most other electric fat bikes with full suspensions are more expensive. The most obvious weakness of the KKBike K26 S may be its high weight of 73 lbs, but fans of electric fat bikes might still want to give this appropriately priced e-bike a try.
