The summer of 2022 brings two amazing new e-bikes designed and manufactured by MAGiCYCLE. These new rides are not just small tweaks of previous models. They are major upgrades, and one of the prized features is the longer range provided by these new fat tire cruisers.
The hub motor for the new e-bikes is improved, and the amp hours of the redesigned battery is an improvement of 25%! This means more power and a range of up to 80 miles. Yes, 80 miles is a top number for lightweight riders pedaling on level terrain with little to no wind. The range of every rider will vary.
A 300 pound rider will never achieve the same range as a 120 pound rider. But regardless of the total weight carried or the terrain the rider normally experiences, range is significantly improved with this new battery. That’s a major consideration for most e-bike owners. Let’s take a closer look at the new cruisers.
Magicycle Cruiser Pro
The lasting popularity of the original MAGiCYCLE Fat Tire Cruiser is undisputed, and it still provides a powerful, reliable, high-quality ride. MAGiCYCLE has passed along all the best features of the original and included them in the new models, such as the Magicycle Cruiser Pro.
Its 350 lb payload (total weight capacity) allows heavier riders to feel confident and safe while riding this gorgeous new e-bike. The bright and easy to read Color LCD Display remains the same, along with the combination of built-in lighting and an included rear rack/full fender package. These features help make the Cruiser Pro not only a top-quality commuter, but also the perfect all-terrain fat tire ebike for trail riding and scenic cruising.

Of course, it is equipped with the newly-improved hub motor and the new long-range battery. That’s a very impressive combination giving Cruiser Pro riders 96 NM of torque. That torque is truly amazing, about the same as the torque of an 800cc motorcycle. Cruiser Pro owners can look forward to faster starts in heavy traffic, improved hill-climbing capability, and a range of up to 70 miles. Of course, range varies with rider weight, terrain, wind speed, and the rider’s pedaling.
The Magicycle Cruiser Pro also offers extended motor life. The life-extending redesign of this motor includes exceptional resistance to heat.
Magicycle Ocelot Pro Cruiser
Many requests have been received for a Magicycle Cruiser that is more easily ridden by e-bikers as small as 4’10’ and yet also comfortable for riders up to 6’2”. The MAGiCYCLE Design Team has worked long and hard to perfectly meet the demand for such a bike. The introduction of the 20” Magicycle Ocelot Pro Cruiser is bringing fresh excitement to e-bike enthusiasts.
If you’ve dreamed of a smaller, stylish, quality cruiser that retains both power and comfort, this is it. The Ocelot has a laid-back beach cruiser styling…nimble, beautiful, comfortable. For riders uncomfortable with the big 26” cruisers, the Ocelot opens up a whole new world of cruising comfort. Although smaller, you can see that the specifications exceed what e-bikers might have expected.

The real value of the new cruisers can be found in Magicycle’s adherence to strict quality control. Good looks is not enough. We know beauty is only skin deep. The amazing reliability of Magicycle e-bikes is a testimony to the effectiveness of authentic quality control.
It is rather amazing how many e-bike companies do not even own the factory that manufactures their e-bikes. How can a company expect to have effective quality control if they don’t even own the factory?
Magicycle is not a normal e-bike company. Magicycle owns the factory where their e-bikes are manufactured. That factory has been producing quality e-bikes for more than 16 years. Every Magicycle begins with the award-winning Magicycle Design Team. That’s the same team that, originated the amazing Magicycle frame design. This design makes their e-bikes both visually appealing and reliably strong.
You will never find any cheap steel in a Magicycle frame. Magicycle has chosen to use 6061 aluminum alloy. This top quality alloy provides exceptional strength, corrosion resistance, light weight, durability, and a defect-free highly pleasing appearance. All this is made possible by employing technology borrowed from the aviation industry. The Magicycle factory uses experts in hydroforming and cataphracted weld joints…regarded as the best welding technique in the world.. This means that Magicycle customers receive a high-tech frame that is strong, safe, and beautiful for unequaled riding stability and comfort.
To summarize, Magicycle has exemplary quality control over the entire bike-building process, from design to manufacture to shipping. When a Magicycle is delivered to a new owner, the box contains an e-bike that will last a very long time, giving reliable service and a safe riding experience. Quality matters — don’t buy your e-bike from a brand that does not own the factory.
E -bike Components
Because they control every aspect of design and manufacturing, Magicycle gets to very carefully select the components. Only well-known brand names are invited to supply motors, batteries, LCD displays, brakes, etc. For example, an unusually powerful 52 volt battery comes on every Magicycle. That battery is supplied by the same company that supplies batteries for Tesla. Only high-quality components go onto a Magicycle! That’s a big factor in the confidence Magicycle owners have in their e-bike.
Of course, the motor is a major component on any e-bike. Again, Magicycle selects a name brand manufacturer with a reputation for quality motors…long-lasting powerful motors with CE, ISO9000, ROHS and 3C certification. In fact, the Magicycle motor from Shengyi yields more torque than any other e-bike brand competing with Magicycle. That’s why Magicycle riders get faster starts for added safety in city traffic conditions. That’s also why the Magicycle Cruiser has such amazing hill-climbing strength.
Another important component is the LCD display, providing all the information you need to safely enjoy your ride. Many brands like to “go cheap” with their display, but not Magicycle. The Magicycle display is in easy-to-read full color (not grayscale), has a very bright screen, and many features that are customizable to the individual rider. That same quality is consistent throughout the entire list of e-bike components. The best quality at the best price is a Magicycle priority.
