G’day boys n girls, I hope you’re all doing well.
In this video, we are reviewing the Chinese made 2021 Accolmile Rocket Bear, electric mountain bike on off road trails in Cleland National Park here in Adelaide, South Australia.
This is a 28kg, 27.5 inch wheeled, 1×9 speed, mid drive 750 watt Bafang powered bike, with “dual” suspension and huge 840 watt hour battery.
We put it up against my 2021 Focus Jam2 6.8 9 with its 250 watt Bosch XC Performance Line motor, 625 watt hour battery, and “proper” dual suspension for some hill climbing sessions over smooth to rough terrain, as well as some flowy trails and eventually, some gnarly downhill stuff.
Will it survive? Will it beat the mighty Bosch? Will my son even survive?
Watch and find out, in this multi part review.
Apologies for the audio compression and jerky camera footage. I’m not a professional videographer by any means. I’m still learning the tricks of the trade as I go.
To hear both myself and my son on the Hero 4 Session he wore, I needed to boost the gain and compression levels somewhat, and as far as the other camera footage goes. I recorded in 30fps on my Samsung phone and rendered into a 50 fps timeline. So it gets a bit jerky with loads of dropped frames. I hope to soon record with only one camera in the future and eliminate this issue.
Thanks for watching.
