Biktrix have released what they claim to be the ultimate range ebike. The Biktrix Juggernaut HD Duo is a fat tire ebike with a 1500W mid-drive motor from Bafang. With a 17.5Ah downtube-integrated battery paired with a 21.5Ah externally-mounted battery the HD Duo ebike claims a range of 95 miles (150km). Just don’t try and lift it over a fence…
Biktrix Juggernaut HD Duo long range ebike
Ninety-five miles is the longest range you’ll get out of the Biktrix Juggernaut HD Duo ebike. Chances are though, you won’t need to go that far in a single trip. You can run the HD Duo with its single downtube-integrated battery for a 45 mile range, add a 14.5Ah battery for a 75 mile range, or add another 17.5Ah battery for an estimated 90 mile range.
The Biktrix Juggernaut HD Duo runs a 1500W mid-drive Bafang BBSHD motor boasting 160Nm torque. It drives 9 or 10 speed Shimano gearing, depending on which model you opt for. An LCD Display on the bar gives the rider info on speed, pedal assist level, battery status and time – you can change the pedal assist level from the bar-mounted remote.
Its top speed is a claimed 35 MPH. That’s simply not legal in most places. So, it can be restricted to 20 MPH or 28 MPH for street legal use, or the motor can be limited to 750W.
26″ Fat or 27.5″ Plus
This fat ebike comes with 26″ x 4.8″ tires from Vee, though Biktrix can also sell you Vee’s 26″ x 4″ tires, or 27.5″ x 3″ mountain bike tires from Kenda. The HD Duo runs a short travel air fork. An RST Guide fork is the standard though you can upgrade to a Biktrix DNM fork or an inverted suspension fork from Wren.
Rounding the bike off as commuter friendly is a set of racks and fenders, plus an integrated front light. The stock light offers just 100 lumens but you can upgrade to their 2000 lumen Armageddon light if you so wish.
The Biktrix Juggernaut HD Duo is a hell of a lot of bike to slow down, so you’ll be wanting great stoppers. It comes with 2-piston Tektro E-350 hydraulic disc brakes running 180mm rotors. That said, you can upgrade to a 4-piston option from Tektro or Magura (probably advisable).
