Robust 750W Geared Rear Hub Motor

The Velowave Prado is equipped with a powerful 750W (nominal output) Bafang rear hub motor, which will make climbing the steepest hills possible. You can ride the Prado like a conventional bike, using the 7-speed Shimano drivetrain, but when you need a boost from the motor, you will not be disappointed. You can get the power you need by using the 5-level pedal assist system (PAS) with cadence sensor, or ride without the need for pedaling by engaging the left-side thumb throttle. The motor has the capacity to get you up to 28+ mph by pedal assist and 20 mph by throttle.

Removable 48V/15Ah LG Battery

The Prado electric bike comes with a removable 48V/15Ah lithium-ion battery with LG cells. It is capable of covering a range of 25-40+ miles per full charge. Removable and waterproof, this battery is safe and convenient to bring home or to your office to recharge. It supports fast charging, charges to about 80% in 4 hours, and fully charge in 8 hours.

Hydraulic Suspension Fork

The Prado is all about comfort, and having a hydraulic suspension fork (aka a front shock) really helps smooth out the bumps in the road. When engaged, the front shock will reduce the vibration of the frame, reducing stress on the arms and shoulders. It allows the Prado to provide a more stable, comfortable, and safe ride, especially on rough surfaces.

20" x 4" Kenda Fat Tires w/ Blade Rims

The Prado features Kenda brand 20" x 4.0" fat tires mounted on rigid blade rims. The benefit of fat tires are many: they absorb bumps in the road, and provide a wider footprint (more surface contact area) increasing the traction and stability of the tread. Fat tires are ideal for off-road riding, and can help cut through soft surfaces like sand and snow. Learn more about fat tire electric bikes on our blog.

Shimano 7-Speed Drivetrain

The Velowave Prado is outfitted with a Shimano 7-speed drivetrain and twist shifter, allowing you to shift smoothly through the gears as you ride. You can use the gears with the motor turned off, and get a nice workout. However, one of the benefits of ebikes is that you can also use the mechanical drivetrain along with the pedal assist system and throttle, maintain comfortable pedaling regardless of terrain.

High-Luminance Headlight

    Outstanding Performance and Great Price

    This is my second Velowave ebike. They are well made, affordable, and are packaged such that protects them while shipping. Performance is outstanding. My other bike is the Ranger FMTB3. Both are excellent!

    Unique Frame Design Makes For Highly Accessible Ebike

    I required a low-step frame that is easy to get on and off of, because of hip surgery and general aging. The Prado-S worked out perfectly for me. I love the smooth ride that fat tires provide, and the motor is very powerful when needed. So far I can give this a very high rating, both for the bike and the customer service I received.

    Perfect Thank you

    I'm not a reviewer or anything, but I can tell you that this was a big purchase for me and Steve really helped me understand ebikes and what might be the best one for me. I got it now, and while there is some getting used to time involved, I really think that this will be a life changer for me. It will let me go to the store without my car and stuff. That's really important, so thank you.

    Very Solid Ebike with Good Price

    I like the frame design of this ebike very much, as it is very easy to get on and off of. There is a lot of power when you need it, and the battery seems to last for at least 2 rides.
