The ElectricBikeReview.com ReviewThe top line of Court’s review was that he “love[s] the way this bike looks and feels.” He gave the bike’s design and construction a complete run down before taking it for a ride, along with help from Sam Townsend, owner of the Electric Bicycle Center in Fullerton, CA.
The Tahoe GT is part of our flagship line of bikes. The list price is $2,995 (the same as it was at the time of the review). It features a 750-watt (1,375 peak watt) Dapu brushless geared motor hub and a 48-volt, 21-ampere-hour Samsung/Panasonic lithium-ion battery. The newer models have a slightly higher peak wattage than the 2018 models which peaked at 1,000 watts.
When riding at around 15 miles per hour on a flat surface, the bike can take you about 60 to 70 miles. EBR estimated the minimum range when going all out at about 30 miles. If you use the “eco” mode, you can take the bike an extra 25% to 30% further.
This can all be controlled with a simple display control panel. Court found this display very easy to use, an impression shared by many of our customers. The bike also features fat tires with a street-oriented tread pattern and a high-quality, RST suspension shock. These two features help provide a nice, smooth ride.
What They Loved About the Tahoe GTCourt like a lot of things about the Tahoe GT. These are some of the particular highlights:
New Updates to the Tahoe GT – Better Than EverOf course, while Court had a very good overall impression of the bike, there were a handful of things that he didn’t like. Fortunately, the E-Lux Electric Bikes team has addressed several of these. In addition to changing the name, we have also offered some new options.
First, Court was disappointed that there was only a high-step frame available. Since his review, we added a stepthru version of the Tahoe GT. He also wanted to see some additional color options. While we still offer the red launch color, we’ve added several colors including black, blue, gunmetal, silver and gloss white.
