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.

Factors include:
– 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.

Assembly Details

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:

    This bike is simply superb. The electronic display is a useful feature informing you of distance, speed, etc For me with a normal bike I was limited to either road or cycle tracks and some off-road. I was also limited on distance I could go due to age and fitness (I am in my mid 40’s) This bike allows me to travel further with less effort, especially uphill. Very easy to use and well built – nice finish on the paintwork. Easy change on gears as well. The battery storage seems to hold it’s charge very well. The best thing of all is it’s versatility. Can use it on the road, up in the hills and on the sand. The wide tyres aid balance and basically helps keep your balance, especially off-road; and the motor helps on the difficult stretches and when tired. Good value for money and my fitness has improved. It is a little heavy due to motor and battery but manageable. It would be good if ProGear could also build a rear wheel motor bike with a throttle – this would definitely be useful on steep hills and off-road; else this bike can still do the job.

    Bought 5 of these now and they have not disappointed yet. Good quality frame and components make up for a great priced e-bike.

    As a new E-Bike owner, I could not be happier with my resent purchase of the Progear E-Blast. I’ve ridden over 200kms in my first week of ownership and without exception, each ride has been so much fun. Make no mistake, this is a big, strong bike, but with the excellent mid drive motor and variety of assist levels, I have never felt like it was hard work, especially once you get up to cruising speed, it just goes. The big tyres handle all types of terrain that I’ve been able to find (no snow here) well. Gearing is good and makes some pretty steep climbs possible and on the flat and downhill I regularly get it above the pedal assist level. The disc brakes are good and have been called on a couple of times to great effect. The build quality is good with strong and neat welds all around and although some assembly was required, the major things were done and I had it up and running pretty quickly. The E-Bike controls are very intuitive and the included manuals are very comprehensive. So far, the Bafang motor has not skipped a beat, it’s relatively quiet and seems to just do what it is supposed to do. The battery life has proven to be very good as well. Range depends on the level of assist, the amount of hills encountered added to me being a full size adult. On a normal sort of rid e with medium assist, I’m using less than a half of the battery on a 25-30km ride.

    I already have 2 high end e mtn bike’s well over 6k each.I bought this one for west coast TAS beach exploring. Spray it with soapywater and hose down lightly with hot water to remove salt.
    Very good in soft sand but needs lower gearing . Replaced 38T with 30T front chainring. Display ,battery and motor very good quality but power delivery software not as refined as high priced Ebikes but plenty of power and perfect for beach and on road riding .A stylish looking machine that will open up a whole new world of FUN and exploring for you.
