Urban E Bikes Top 7 e-bikes benefits on the list.

You can be as not to be seen, smell or heard, a stealthy move as wildlife can detect your scent or the smell of your vehicle long before you even know they’re there – unfortunately, it can let them run away from your trail and up the hill. Moving into your duck blind or deer stand without making a lot of noise is highly important. E-bikes do not leave scent trails for wildlife. Getting to your hunting positions without being noticed is one of the challenges of the sport yet it’s very quiet and they can carry you to your location in virtual silence.

Make transportation easier for your game,  attach a high-capacity cargo trailer to your e-bike to transport your game home or the nearest disposal location. Trying to carry a heavy deer carcass out by hand can really be a challenge. Before processing, animals are heavy and bulky to carry, especially if you’re deep in the woods and away from your vehicle.
A cargo trailer attached to your electric hunting bike can take a lot of the load off of your hunting trips so you can spend more time tracking and enjoying the outdoors.

It can make transporting and carry a lot of your gears easier, depending on where, how and what you hunt you are taking part in and you might need the following gear/s:  flashlight with battery, a first aid kit, food and water, telescope, rangefinder, rain gear, gun or bow, ammo and crates, machining tools, gloves, game pack, a survival blanket, a gaming phone, your hunting license, game tags, toilet paper, two way radio, a towel, hand warmer, a cushion, cooler and in addition for overnight camping, you’ll also have to add weight to tents, cooking supplies, sleeping bags, etc.. Having an electric hunting bike with saddlebags will allow you to carry your gear and extend your time out in the wilderness. Saddlebags combined with handlebar bags and a pannier rack will give you ample storage space for all your gear. A lot of these e-bike models have a load capacity of up to 350 lbs and by attaching a trailer you can carry more than that.

It can handle challenging terrain, the destinations that hunt are in remote locations. Hunting e-bikes can even handle ice, snow, mud, sand and surface water without sinking, slipping or getting stuck, creating a level of versatility and accessibility you can’t get on foot. These rugged e-bikes can handle difficult terrain without slowing you down.  You will be able to go down extensive trails that you never thought possible.

Ability to access public land,  Some public land may not allow motorized vehicles, but e-bikes are generally allowed.

It is easy to handle, because these e-bikes are lightweight, they are easy to handle and can be carried just about anywhere and they are also easy to store.  Many of the e-bikes can even be carried with you on a plane. To bring your e-bike along with you on your next long-distance trip, all you need to do is have it checked with your airline and retrieve it once you have landed at your destination. This is very convenient, and you will be able to enjoy your e-bike even if you are thousands of miles away from home. 

Environmental benefits, E-bikes are a more environmentally friendly alternative to gas-powered vehicles, as they produce zero emissions and help to reduce air pollution and mitigate the negative impacts of climate change.

If you are planning to purchase an e-bike from our collection of Hunting & Fishing E-Bikes, you must know how to choose the best electric bike for hunting. Here are some ideas to consider:

Range: Make sure the e-bike has a sufficient range for your hunting needs. Consider the terrain you'll be riding on and the distance you'll need to cover.

Size: The best hunting e-bike is one that easily adapts to your size, weight, and added features, such as a cargo trailer or rack. Every e-bike has a maximum rider weight and can accommodate a variety of loads, depending on your cargo trailer.

Suspension: If you'll be riding on rough terrain, look for an e-bike with a suspension system to ensure a comfortable ride.

Tires: Choose e-bike tires that are suitable for the type of terrain you'll be riding on. For example, if you'll be riding on muddy trails, look for tires with good tread for added traction.

Motor: Look for an e-bike with a powerful motor that can handle hills and rough terrain.

Features: Take a close look at the e-bike’s transfer speed, total weight, battery voltage, seat type, wheel style and other features like USB ports and LCD displays. Our e-bikes use thumb throttle or twist throttle, and pedal assist is available on all models.

Accessories: Upgrade and equip your e-bike to suit your hunting needs with optional accessories such as locks, security sirens, mounts, racks, fenders, horns and off-road kits.

The Brand: Choose an e-bike brand you can trust and take care of your investment.

We, here at Urban E Bikes have a number of high quality brands to choose from, one of them is Bakcou e-bikes. This company specializes in producing electric mountain bikes for hunting and other outdoor activities. The company offers a range of e-bike models with features such as powerful motors, long range batteries, and durable components designed to handle rough terrain.

Some of their popular models include the Bakcou MULE, and Bakcou FLATLANDER. It may be worth considering a Bakcou e-bike if you are in the market for a high-quality electric mountain bike for hunting or other outdoor activities.

Here are some of the most popular hunting electric bikes we recommend:

The Mule was designed and engineered around the unparalleled power and performance of Bafangs ULTRA mid-drive motor.
The Ultra motor is widely recognized as the “diesel engine” of mid-drive motors! It’s all metal, heavy-duty gearing, combined with the intelligence of an integrated torque sensor, make the Ultra motor the most capable, durable, and efficient motor on the planet.

The Mule ST are built exactly like the Mule, with the exception of a lower top tube allowing for a shorter stand over height.
This allows for greater ease in getting on and off of the bike. We recommend our Mule Step-Through (ST) model for our customers with a shorter leg length, or those that have difficulty getting on and off of a traditional fat-tire, eBike. 

The Cobra ebike is equipped with powerful 750W gear hub motor and upgraded inner ring. It also adopts a strong high-end mountain bike four-bar linkage suspension and coil suspension, absorbing any bumps on the way down the trail. The 26”X4.8” CST super fat tires, as the biggest e bike tires in the U.S. market, make riding more stable to suit all road conditions.

If your plans are to hunt rough, rugged, gnarly terrain, with a pack on your back, and you are less interested in packing heavy gear on your bike, or pulling weighted down trailers, then the full suspension Storm is right for you. 
The full suspension Storm delivers a ‘’Cadillac ride’’ while traversing even the most rugged terrain.
