Summary

  • A sturdy feature-rich fat tire electric bike complete with fenders, a rear cargo rack, and optional front rack. Four color options include unique urban and desert camo, as well as black and desert tan. Integrated lights are powered by the rechargeable ebike battery, both have two LEDs for increased brightness, the rear light blinks when braking. Reflective tires further increase your visual footprint.
  • Premium look and feel with all-black hardware, including the spokes and suspension fork stanchions. Vast network of dealers to visit for test rides and service, or buy direct and get it 80% assembled. Derailleur guard and chainring guard reduce damage in shipping. High capacity battery pack is positioned low and center, it includes a USB charging port on the side. Faster than average charger, affordable battery upgrade option.
  • Powerful 750 watt nominal Bafang planetary geared hub motor provides high-speed 28mph performance. Twist throttle provides full power on all levels of assist. Large LCD display is easy to read and swivels to reduce glare. Intuitive control pad and shifter mechanism with large gear indicator. Powerful 180mm hydraulic disc brakes with adjustable reach levers and motor inhibitors.
  • Large and heavier than average at 73.7lbs so consider removing the 9.5lb battery when lifting, servicing, and transporting. Limited 14-28 tooth freewheel provides a smaller range of cadence options despite the higher top speed. Entry-level Shimano Altus derailleur requires some reaching and more effort to activate. Chain bounces into kickstand frequently, chipping the paint and causing some noise. Extra wires up front due to motor inhibitors, but otherwise good internal routing.

Written Review

This in-depth review was not sponsored by Magnum or any other company, but I would like to thank Cap’s Electric Bike Shop for allowing me to use a test bike from their shop. My goal is to be transparent and unbiased with you, this video and writeup are not meant to be an endorsement of Magnum products. I welcome your corrections, additions, and feedback in the comments below and the Magnum electric bike forums.

Observations:

  • Magnum has developed and extensive network of dealers that carry their products in the United States and Canada, but also sells direct to consumer 80%+ assembled. They have been selling electric bikes since 2010 with steady hardware improvements and consistent support.
  • The Scout is commuter ready with fenders, integrated lights, and a rear rack. The high-step frame gives it strength for off-road use and hauling, but raises the standover height. If you’re interested in a very similar build and want a more approachable mid-step frame, consider the Magnum Nomad.

Pros:

  • The Magnum Scout checks a lot of boxes based on its value price point, abundant accessories, adjustable suspension fork, and unique color options. It’s commuter ready, having fenders, lights, and a rear rack, and also trail capable, having knobby tires and a powerful motor that can reach up to 28mph. It’s the kind of ebike you could ride year round in all sorts of conditions.
  • Excellent hydraulic disc brakes here. The three finger levers felt sturdy and were easy to actuate. They offer some reach adjustment for different hand sizes, and they both have motor inhibitors and a brake light activation switch. Interestingly, the brake light blinks here vs. going bright like most competing products. I think it’s a decent decision… especially if the lights are already switched on. Finally, the larger 180mm disc brake rotors front and rear provide good stopping power and cooling properties.
  • The high-step frame is very sturdy, along with the rigid stem. This ebike is very similar to the mid-step Magnum Nomad which has a mid-step frame and adjustable angle stem but weighs 2lbs more. For rigorous off-road use, the high-step will handle better with less frame flex given the heavier tires, fenders, and rear rack (which is capable of 25kg 55lbs load). I also noticed the thicker 12 gauge spokes in the rear wheel.
  • Above average suspension fork provides a compression clicker that can fully lock out (for reduced bobbing if you’re on a flat smooth surface), as well as preload adjust (to pre-load the spring for your body weight). A big highlight for me is the black stanchions! Most competing products have silver stanchions, and wouldn’t match the all-black hardware of this bike as nicely. Great job with the spokes, hubs, rims, seat post, stem, handlebar etc. Magnum! The fact that they make a black frame is pretty nice too, it looks very clean and helps to obscure the black battery pack which is only semi-integrated into the downtube.
  • Since the bike may be shipped direct, I appreciate that it comes with a steel derailleur guard to protect the sensitive parts of the drivetrain. Note also the chainring guard and internally routed cables that are less prone to damage and snags.
  • The 48 volt battery pack offers above average capacity and power, and it combines with the fat bike specific planetary geared hub motor to produce a lot of strength for starting, climbing, and accelerating.
  • I love that Magnum chose a sealed 12 magnet cadence sensor for their ebikes, because this part is proven and reliable. Pedal assist performed as expected, and the variable speed twist throttle overrides PAS with full power no matter which level you’ve chose. This means you can be in PAS level 1, but use the throttle to add power and speed in an instant. Very useful for off-road riding in sand, snow, or other difficult terrain.
  • By separating the controller box from the battery pack, Magnum reduced heat exchange and lowered the price for replacement and upgrade batteries. I’m impressed that it’s only ~$100 to go from a 840Wh to 921.6Wh battery pack at time of purchase! This will extend range and lifespan of the battery, and only adds 1.2lbs of extra weight. Also, the same battery pack is used for the Magnum Nomad, so you could share packs between family members.
  • Magnum chose a battery charger that is rated at 2.8 amps vs. just 2 amps for similarly priced competing bikes. This 40% increase will shorten recharge times and is very useful given the size of the battery packs on offer.
  • The bike felt very comfortable and stable to me due to the wide stable fat tires and 80+mm suspension fork travel. Although it’s heavy, I think this could be a great choice for riders who want to feel secure and be able to handle a variety of terrain, including really soft stuff. If you do encounter sand or snow, be sure to lower the tire pressure to ~5PSI so you actually float and get traction, they won’t work as well if you leave them at the higher ~30PSI range. Also, I was able to coast no-handed very comfortably without speed wobble during my test rides.
  • The cockpit is fairly intuitive, even for new riders. The gear selector is large and has a readout to explain what gear you’ve chosen. The display is also above-average size and very easy to understand. With the four button control pad, it should be easy for most folks to use. Just remember to hold the up arrow to activate lights and the down arrow to activate walk mode if needed.
  • I like that Magnum chose name brand Wellgo platform pedals, because they feel stiff and grippy. Some companies choose narrower or flexier cage or plastic pedals. I like that the saddle has a handle built into the back for easier positioning of the bike. I like that the locking core and USB port are high up on the battery… but do wish the charge port was also high vs. low near the left crank arm.
  • Excellent integrated lights here. They’re bright, run off the main battery pack, and the headlight points where you steer. The headlight may need to be repositioned if you get the optional front rack, and may no longer point where you steer in that case. I also love that the tires have reflective stripes on them, to create more visible surface area for cars etc. especially since the headlight does not have side cutouts.
  • The wide plastic fenders did not rattle, will not rust if scratched (as steel fenders do), and provided good coverage during my wet riding tests. I think you could remove them pretty easily to save some weight if you wished.
  • The rear rack is very nice. It’s positioned far enough back so as not to block the saddle in its lowest position. It is fairly long, so you can easily fit a trunk bag or child seat like the Yepp! Nexxt Maxi side clamp version, and it has a triple bungee as well as side pannier hangers that use standard gauge tubing for maximum compatibility.
  • I believe that the US version of this ebike can go ~28MPH and is a Class 3 speed pedelec. This is unique in the world of fat ebikes, but you can probably lower the top speed if you wish, and you could remove the twist throttle to achieve Class 1 for use on some mountain biking trails.
  • There are many adjustments that can be made to the LCD display by entering the settings menu. To do this, you must hold the up and down buttons within three seconds of powering on the display. It appears that you can show the battery percentage in addition to a five bar readout, change the units, and also adjust that top speed.
  • I love how the display dims a bit whenever you activate the lights. This makes it less distracting, and helps to preserve your night vision.
  • This bike has a 30.4mm seat post, so if you were looking to add more comfort to the ride setup, you have the option to purchase an aftermarket suspension seat post like a Kinekt or SR SunTour NCX to create a full-suspension feel. I’m not sure it’s necessary given the squishy fat tires, but it would still be compatible.

Cons:

  • The bike only comes in one frame size. You can adjust the saddle height, but the stem is fixed. The saddle and grips felt pretty good, but both were unbranded and the grips were not locking (so they could spin if you really twist hard while riding).
  • Despite being nearly identical to the Magnum Nomad (aside from the frame design and no adjustable-angle stem), the Magnum Scout costs over $200 USD more. That model also comes in four colors, and is more approachable due to the mid-step frame.
  • Weighing in at 73.7lbs with the standard capacity 17.5wh battery pack, this is a heavy ebike. Fat tire electric bikes usually tend to weigh a lot to begin with, but the wide fenders, integrated lights, high power motor, extended rear rack, derailleur guard and chainring guard, and double leg kickstand all add weight. Perhaps they could have shaved some weight with punched out rims? Consider removing the battery pack before lifting to save 9.5lbs or 10.7lbs (depending on which battery capacity you get).
  • The optional 19.2Ah battery pack sticks out on the left side a bit. It’s not perfectly symmetrical like the 17.5Ah battery. You can see this in the video review and photos above. Not a huge deal, bit it is a visual and balance compromise.
  • The alloy double leg kickstand is sturdy, but it hangs down lower than most side-mounted stands. This could result in obstacle strikes if you’re riding off road. Also, the right leg of this stand is so close to the chain that it frequently touches and makes noise while riding. The almost-new demo bike that I reviewed already had paint chipped off from previous test riders.
  • I was surprised that they didn’t add a clear sticker slap guard to the right chain stay to keep the chain from chipping the paint (as we saw on the kickstand). You could always make your own protectors with clear box tape. The frame and kickstand are aluminum alloy, so at least they won’t rust.
  • Basic 1-1/8″ straight steer tube limits suspension fork upgrades (most of which require a tapered steer tube), and the 9mm quick release skewer isn’t as sturdy as a 15mm thru-axle I’d expect from a true mountain bike with fat tires. Similar situation with the square tapered bottom bracket vs. ISIS splined and the limited 14 to 28 tooth freewheel vs. an 11 to 32+ tooth cassette. The limited gear range is not optimal for an ebike with higher ride speed potential 0 to 28mph assisted. It would be nice to have gears that were optimized for starting and climbing as well as maintaining higher speeds.
  • Entry level Shimano thumb shifter requires a bit of reaching to actuate, but is very intuitive and probably easier to interact with when wearing gloves. Basic Shimano Altus derailleur isn’t as tight or light as higher level alternatives, but they tend to be very reliable.
  • I appreciate the USB charging port on the battery pack, but it would be nice to have one on the display panel as well. As it stands, you’d have to use a right angle USB adapter to keep a USB plug from sticking out and potentially getting snagged while pedaling, and you’d have to run a wire up to the handlebars which could look ugly and be more prone to disconnecting or damage.
  • The controller is external to the battery pack and mounted independently behind the seat tube, which doesn’t look as clean. However, it reduces the price of battery packs and spreads out heat. The wires at the front of the bike are also a bit busy, due in part to the addition of brake lever motor inhibitors, a remote button pad, the display, and the twist throttle. At least they are fairly well managed with Velcro strips and then internally routed through the downtube :)
  • The headlight is very bright, with two LEDs, and the housing appears to be tough aluminum alloy! However, it does not have side windows. At least the tires have reflective stripes to increase the visual footprint of the bike. Consider the tan Sand colored frame to maximize your visual footprint. The urban or desert camo may be light and easy to see too, but maybe the camo wouldn’t stand out as much?
  • I’m glad that the top tube has bottle cage bosses, for those who really want to use them for an accessory, but the positioning may limit stand over room. The shorter handlebar doesn’t have a lot of space for adding a cup holder, but is nice for riding between tight spaces, cars, or moving the bike inside. These are minor considerations, and the optional front basket and included rear rack go a long way to address cargo.
  • The battery charging port is very low near the left crank arm, so you have to bend down to reach it (watch your head when coming up, or you might hit the handlebar). It’s nice that you can cycle the pedals backwards when the kickstand is deployed (for drivetrain maintenance), but this means you could also snag the charging cable and possibly break the interface, so be careful.
  • The motor is very capable and powerful, it performed well during my climb tests and off-road. I did not see a torque arm at the rear axle, just a torque washer. Perhaps this is fine for most situations, but given the 750 watt to 1,000 watt output, I’d keep an eye on the rear axle so it doesn’t get loose and chew the aluminum alloy dropouts.
  • Very minor complaint, the support arms for the front fender attach to the suspension fork lowers with plastic cuffs vs. direct mount bolts to threaded eyelets. They could slide more easily or crack over time.
  • This is a minor complaint, but the front wheel wants to turn sideways when the bike is parked. I had trouble keeping it pointed straight when doing my frame measurements, and this could be frustrating if you’re parking the bike in a tight space or loading it with gear. I think it has to do with the heavy front wheel, fender, and fork, but maybe a stabilizer spring would help like some cargo bikes use?
