96.8 Nm vs. 80 Nm — Does it matter?
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. Magicycle provides the highest torque of any fat tire e-bike in its price range. Without getting overly 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 ebike. 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, the more torque is available for turning the rear wheel and propelling the ebike forward.
A motor with 86 Nm of torque gives your e-bike quicker starts and more powerful hill-climbing ability than a lesser motor with say…80 Nm or 68 Nm. Magicycle is absolutely the leader in available torque, giving you more power than any competitively priced ebike!
To summarize, higher torque provides quicker takeoff, easier starts on an uphill incline, and greater ease of climbing hills.

EDIT — Magicycle has now upgraded the motor to 96.8 Nm!
You can notice immediately that Magicycle provides more torque at a lower price. Along with more torque, you also get a high quality e-bike designed by Magicycle and built in Magicycle’s own factory, a color display, and much more!
All that torque isn’t very helpful without a reliable power source, so Magicycle gives you a much more powerful battery than the competing brands. The combination of high torque, strongest battery, and a quality brand-name motor is absolutely fabulous. You will love the riding experience and long range on a Magicycle cruiser — get yours here.
