E-bike Power and Range in a Small Package

MAGiCYCLE e-bike fans love the big 26′′ Fat Tire Cruisers for their comfortable cruiser styling, but they don’t have the space to store them. If you live in a small apartment, leaning a large Cruiser against your living room wall may be unachievable. On your next driving vacation, you can forget about transporting your 26′′ Cruiser if you own one of the compact cars. Fortunately, a folding e-bike that lives up to the high standards set by the 26′′ Cruisers has been created by the talented Design Team at Magicycle.

MAGiCYCLE Jaguarundi Folding E-bike

The Folding Jaguarundi Fat Tire E-bike

You may be wondering…what is a Jaguarundi? This folding e-bike is named after a beautiful wildcat. The jaguarundi is approximately two times the size of a normal domestic housecat, and lives in Central and South America. Just as the folding e-bike is smaller than other e-bikes, the jaguarundi wildcat is a smaller wildcat with a slender build and short legs.

The MAGiCYCLE Jaguarundi is a smaller, more maneuverable e-bike that most riders can comfortably ride. These folding models are gaining attention as a sustainable and healthy alternative to heavier 26″ fat tire e-bikes, while also appealing to people with small transport vehicles. It’s convenience factor is unmatched due to its tiny footprint, allowing it to be stored almost anywhere.

Even those who don’t have to transport their bikes in their car enjoy the advantage of folding e-bikes because they take up less space in the home–perhaps fitting under a desk or in a corner. Maybe you just want an e-bike that is easier to carry up the steps to your apartment. Whatever your reason, folding bikes are an excellent option for e-bike buyers. Let’s take a closer look at the Jaguarundi.

A Size that Fits

A folding bike is normally smaller in size than most fat tire e-bikes, but it can be designed to comfortably accommodate riders of all sizes. This is a great feature, especially if two or more family members are taking turns on the same e-bike. It has a wheelbase of 46.8′′ and a folded footprint of 30.71′′ H X 24.41 W X 45.28′′ L.

There is no doubt that many riders will consider the Magicycle Jaguarundi Folding Step-Thru model to be Magicycle’s most user-friendly model. This electric bike is fun, powerful, and compact. It can take you to work or the park with equal comfort, whether you’re riding on pavement or trails.

The Jaguarundi Folding E-bike is designed with the very popular step-thru frame. For people with various physical challenges that make biking difficult, step-thru e-bikes are making it possible to return to biking. Even older senior adults are re-discovering the joy of bike riding. The pedal assist aspect of e-bikes is making life more enjoyable for thousands of who thought the would never rids a bike again. In addition to the motor, the availability of step-thru e-bikes is very important. Simply put, it is just much easier to get on and off a step-thru e-bike.

Step-thru e-bikes are becoming more and more popular among e-bike enthusiasts. Some shoppers just like the looks of the step-thru bike frames, but many e-bike fans prefer step-thru e-bikes for the advantages they offer. Even people of average height may find it challenging to swing a leg over a conventional step-over model, but with a true stop-thru, it’s easy!


Small in Size — Big in Power

Having a comfortable e-bike that fits your height and has plenty of power is important. After all, a bike that accommodates a tall rider but cannot handle the extra weight up steep hills is of no use to the rider. As with all Magicycle motors, the Jaguarundi motor is renowned for its power and reliability. It has a powerful 750 peak watt motor, powered by an exceptionally good 52 volt battery providing 15 amp hours. Power determines how fast an e-bike starts, how fast it cruises, and how well it climbs hills. You want an e-bike that has a powerful motor that provides plenty of power.

When you need to strap a heavy load to the optional rear rack, the Jaguarundi will not disappoint! It has the power to handle a 350 pound payload. And this ride has the torque to handle the payload…80 Neuton meters! Neuton meters (Nm) is a measurement of torque. This scientific technique for measurement was invented by Isaac Newton, and is still very much the standard for measuring torque today. Without getting too technical, why do e-bikers care about torque?

It’s actually fairly simple — torque is important because of its relationship to power. You can think of torque as the power available for turning the rear wheel on your e-bike. The torque can be provided by a motor or by the pedaling of a bike rider. The harder the rider pedals, the more torque is applied for turning the rear wheel.

In the same manner, the more powerful the battery, and the better the motor design, the more torque is available for turning the rear wheel and propelling the e-bike forward. MAGiCYCLE is proud to provide a high-powered 52 volt battery, well ahead of the competition. A motor with 80 Nm of torque gives your e-bike quicker starts for crossing busy intersections and more powerful hill-climbing ability than a lesser motor.

To summarize, higher torque provides quicker takeoff, easier starts on an uphill incline, and greater ease of climbing hills.

Control Your Power Like a Wildcat

It’s true that power is important, and so is control of all that power. The Jaguarundi is equipped with a half-twist throttle that smoothly delivers power to the hub motor. There are seven levels of pedal assist on the MAGiCYCLE Jaguarundi, providing the rider with a wide range of control.

When the cadence sensor detects that you’re pedaling, the controller sends power to assist you. How much power does the controller use? Depending on the level of pedal assist you choose, the Jaguarundi’s 7 levels allow you to optimize your pedaling effort. Mayo Clinic says that as you exercise, your muscles become stronger, so they can better support your bones and surrounding tissues. By doing so, you can reduce stress placed on your knee joint, which can improve your knee’s feel. By e-biking, you strengthen the small muscles that support your joints, as well as the large calorie-eating muscles like the glutes and quadriceps.

It’s All About Quality

Many e-bike shoppers are unaware that Magicycle Inc. had been producing e-bikes for 16 years before introducing their products to the US market. From the outset, Magicycle has focused on quality control. Since many e-bike brands do not own a factory, they cannot provide effective quality control. How can they do that if they don’t own a factory? Unfortunately, it is impossible.

As a quality e-bike manufacturer, Magicycle owns a factory that has been building e-bikes with excellence for more than 16 years. The Magicycle Design Team is responsible for creating the amazing frame design that makes their e-bikes both visually appealing and highly durable.

Magicycle frames are constructed with 6061 aluminum alloy, a top quality material that provides incredible strength, corrosion resistance, light weight and long-lasting durability. Moreover, the finish is defect-free and highly attractive. With technology borrowed from the aviation industry, this leading bicycle company has perfected the use of hydroforming and cataphracted weld joints – commonly thought to be the finest welding technique worldwide – making it possible for riders to enjoy unequalled stability and comfort.

Factory Ownership Perks

From design to manufacture to shipping, Magicycle ensures exemplary quality control throughout the entire process. The sturdy Magicycle shipping box contains an e-bike that will provide reliable service and a safe riding experience for years to come. And Magicycle goes to great lengths to add extra protection inside the shipping box, so that your shiny new fat tire e-bike arrives without even a scratch. Don’t settle for an e-bike from a brand that doesn’t own the factory — quality matters.

It All Comes Down to This…

The bottom line is that fat tire e-bikes provide great pleasure for those who love to ride on various landscapes. However, transporting them can be difficult due to their size, unless you invest in a folding model. This opens up numerous opportunities from being able to fit your bike in the trunk of your car or even just tucking it away neatly at home. Folding down the handlebars is an easy way to conserve space and have your ride beautifully integrated into any room.
