Velowave Ranger Review by The Inja
The Inja is a well-known YouTuber, offering his honest and helpful takes on electric bikes. In this review, The Inja says "the Velowave Ranger is a good electric bike but obviously, comparing it to other e-bikes I have or I have ridden in the past. Obviously there's trade-offs either way so, I would prefer it goes a few miles per hour faster, but you are getting longer range distance if you are locked in at a slightly lower speed than what it could do so, there's just trade-offs either way."

I did a lot of research into which fat tire eBike would be the best value for what I was looking for. I wanted to shorten the time it took to ride to work and have a more comfortable ride while doing so. With my road bike, it would take on average 55 minutes to travel 15 miles each way. With my new Ranger, I am making the same commute in 30 minutes. This bike moves! Minimal effort pedaling and you cruise easily at 25mph. With any effort in the low gear, I easily ride at 29-31mph. I could not be more happy with my Velowave Ranger! After 150 miles of riding, here is my review to this point: Saddle is very comfortable with or without bike shorts. Hydraulic brakes work great. Light is sufficient for dawn/ dusk riding but I add another light when I am riding in the dark. Aesthetically, this thing bike is beautiful. I get so many compliments on it and people stop and stare. The motor is very quiet. When I am riding in the grass (which this bike just floats over) there is not tire noise and all you can hear is a faint wind from the motor. I have only used the pedal assist mode which is very responsive. The throttle is ok but not nearly as peppy as the highest setting if pedal assist. The stock controller limits the throttle only to 20mph on the nose but the Velowave does sell an "off road" controller if you wanted to go faster than that without pedaling. I do not have this on my bike but will consider it in the future. For me, I like the pedaling and contributing Watts of my own! Suspension is adjustable and is smooth when taking bumps. So far so AMAZING and I recommend this bike to everyone.
