Velowave Ranger 2.0 Ebike Review

Looking for an affordable trail seeker with 26×4 tires and a beefy 750 motor? Then check out the Ranger from Velowave. It can be yours for as little as $1,199.

Ranger 2.0

The Ranger compares favorably to the new Lectric Xpeak. It has a slightly bigger battery (15ah vs 14ah) and I like its Revoshift twist shift vs the Xpeaks, but still feel the XPeak is a better ebike. But its not a huge margin.
