We couldn’t resist the opportunity to shoot a video on the day when we got orders for 4 Moonlanders with BionX. How can you pass up a chance to have that many brand new electric fat bikes in the same video? Even cooler – we had 2 mediums, a large, and an extra larger, representing 3 out of 5 frame sizes offered by Surly Bikes. Our electric Moonlanders have super wide 4.8 inch tires, a sturdy steel frame, and a custom built rear wheel using a black 32 spoke BionX motor and the original Surly Marge Lite rim. The motor and battery almost disappear among the giant tires!
This is a very light weight electric fat bike – not weighted down by a huge motor. The 350 Watt motor is light enough to float over gravel, sand, and other loose surfaces but powerful enough to offer some serious power on tough hills. The high capacity lithium battery allows you to ride with assistance for up to 20 miles on a charge – or even more if you use the lower assistance levels!
Excited to undertake your own adventures? Order a Surly Moonlander with BionX installed for the ultimate off road electric vehicle – light, powerful, versatile!
