The Progear E-Blast is a 26″ x 43″, Shimano Altus Rapid Fire Plus 8 speed Alloy Electric Fat Mountain Bike with the Bafang MAX-01 Electric Drive System. E-Blast is a pedal assist bike using the acclaimed Bafang MAX-01 E-Bike system, coupled with the 36v/11.6 AH Phylion battery that has Panasonic cells and a matched Phylion charger which complies to all required standards. The gutsy gussetted 18″ frame has a sloping tope tube providing a good fit for cyclists of all sizes.
– Huge Big Daddy Fat MTB tyres will take you anywhere, and the extra power from the Bafang electric motor will get you there and back again.
– Reliable Tektro Disc brakes provide all the stopping power needed
– The alloy frame, forks, rims and components make the Progear E-Blast light weight but strong.
– The motor is mid drive and in general a mid drive motor powers through the drivetrain (transmission) of the bike which enables the motor to help with long & steep climbs and power up to high speeds on flat roads.
– The lower centre of gravity also provides better handling, easier to lift on and off a bike rack and removal of either wheel is easier.
– The Mid Drive Bafang motor is 36v/250w and limited to 25km/h ensuring Australian Standards compliance
Travel distance on our Electric Bikes:
The travel distance after a full charge on this e-Bike can vary from 30km to 50km.
There are several factors that will affect how long the battery will last after a full charge.
– Level of pedal assistance – higher level of assistance will use more battery charge
– Weight of Rider & Luggage – more weight may require more power from the battery
– Terrain & Weather Conditions – Terrain & wind may cause drag, and will require more power to maintain speed.
– Tyre Conditions – Incorrect tyre pressure may create more rolling resistance
– Traffic/Route Conditions – Stop/Start cycling may use more power to accelerate up to appropriate travelling speeds.

All Bikes come approx. 80% assembled in the box. All you have to do is install the front wheel & brakes, attach your handlebars, insert the seatpost and attach the pedals. Brakes and gears may need adjustment prior to riding.
While assembly is a fairly simple process, please bear in mind that our warranty does not cover damage caused by incorrect assembly, so if you’re not confident assembling the bike yourself, we do recommend that you have your local bike shop assemble it for you.
We have assembly video tutorials covering most of our bikes: https://ebikespro.com.au/pages/product-videos
