Power spec wise, probably not. No throttle. Just a great torque sensor that reacts immediately to the turning of your pedal. With a throttle, you can pretty much forget about any ambitions of getting great range; what a bike becomes at that point is a moped without the great gas mileage!
IGR-Internal Gear Hub? Ask veteran poster David Berry what he feels about his ultra high tech, industry standard Rohloff Rear Hub on his Riese and Muller on that one. He's got a thread floating about on here detailing the frustrations about his bike. The Rohloff gear hub has been proven in thousands upon thousands of bike touring miles but maybe the verdict is still out on an ebike application. The Sram Eagle and Eagle NX series rear cassette cluster features some big rear sprockets for getting through deep sand or steep hills with not much issue.
Haibike also has a cheaper priced, FatSix hardtail (with Rock Shox front fork), that one too with the Yamaha drive, but one a bit tamed down on the upper power output end.
To me and my biased opinion based on my riding adventures, there are only two top tier fat tired ebikes on the market worth considering at this time: the Haibike FatSix entries featuring Yamaha power and the Bulls Monster ebikes, hard tail and full suspension, powered by Bosch.
Awesome info, many thanks. I had a double lung transplant and the trails are a few miles from my house. Hence the need for a throttle. I’m working my way up to doing it all on my own. I will check out Bulls as well. Thanks buddy.
