E-bike manufacturer Himiway recently dropped four new fat tire models and they are as cool as their names. Inspired from the animal kingdom, the wheelers boast a very attractive design and long ranges, to name just two of their top-selling features.
Despite only having three models available until now, Himiway brags about having sold over 30,000 e-bikes in a year, with customers appreciating the bikes' impressive range, versatility, and solid, reliable construction. Now the manufacturer adds four more bikes to the lineup: Zebra, Big Dog, Cobra, and Cobra Pro.
All of them embody the animals after which they were named. All the e-bikes share the same basic features, except for the Cobra Pro, which is more powerful than the other three.
All bikes are equipped with a 750W geared hub motor (86Nm torque) and a 48V 20Ah Samsung battery that offers an estimated range of up to 80 miles (128 km) per charge. The Cobra Pro is the only one that packs a 1,000W mid-drive motor.
Both the Cobra and Cobra Pro come with 26 x 4.8” tires, while the Big Dog is equipped with 20 x 4” fat tires, and the Zebra has 26 x 4” tires.
The bikes have a maximum payload capacity of 400 lb (181 kg).
Designed as the company’s new premium, all-terrain, long-range bike, the Zebra shines through its incredible stamina, just like the animal it tries to honor. The bike is available in a 'step over' and a 'step thru' version. Both will set you back $2,000.
The Big Dog is designed as a cargo bike suitable for carrying equipment, making deliveries, and so on. It comes with some really useful rear racks and space to add bags, proving to be useful and reliable every time you need it. It is priced at $2,100.
Himiway’s Cobra and Cobra Pro are described as the most extreme e-bikes built by the manufacturer so far. They feature a softail design, mid-drive motor, improved suspension, and the widest tires. The Cobra is priced at $2,400, while the Cobra Pro will cost you $4,000.
You can check out all the models on the Himiway website. They are all available to pre-order, with shipping being scheduled to begin in February 2022.
