What can you get that walks the line between the best off-road electric bikes and the best electric hunting bikes? The Quietkat Ranger comes to mind. After all, thick tires are a hallmark of off-road biking. And the option of a 750W or 1000W motor with coil suspension is a dream when hunting game. Its features make it a better option as the best electric bike for hunting, compared to other bikes.

Why We Like It – QuietKat Ranger

This model comes with either a 750W or 1000W motor that’s quiet in the wild. Paired with coil suspension and hydraulics and a max load capacity of 300 lbs, the Quietkat Ranger is begging for a hunter to take it on an adventure.

  • 750W or 1000W motor; 20mph w/ high torque
  • Spring coil suspension w/ hydraulics
  • Load capacity of 300 lbs.
  • Somewhat long recharge time
  • 40-mile range

Durability & Build Quality

Typical of many electric bikes, 6061 aluminum was used; lightweight, but still very durable. Frame sizes range between small to large, 17” and 19”, respectively. The saddle is ergonomically designed for comfort. A hydraulic front suspension system and fat tires keep the bike on the ground while absorbing oncoming terrain. Load capacity is 25 lbs less than the RadRover bike.

Performance (Speed & Acceleration)

With a 750-watt or 1000-watt hub drive electric motor, torque, and speed are expected. Read our hub motor vs mid drive for more info on motor types. The hub drive motor has a max speed of 20mph, which is the limit hub motors can push before being illegal on the road. You have options between single-speed gearing or the Shimano Atlus 7-speed gearing. The Atlus provides a wide range of terrain control. If you plan on buying a bike with easy-to-maneuver handlebars, check out the Rad Power Bikes RadWagon review.

Range & Battery

The new Quietkat Ranger does lack substantial range. You can expect around 40 miles on a single charge, which is 25 miles shorter than the IZIP E3 Peak Plus. You can keep track of metrics with the digital battery-powered display. Moreover, if you’d like bikes with a similar range, you’ll want to read our Raleigh Retroglide IE and our NAKTO folding electric bike.

Safety Features

The Quietkat Ranger is naturally safe with thicker tires, a strong build, and multiple gears. That alone gives you a much smoother ride than it would be without those features. Its most important safety features are the front and rear 7-inch mechanical disc brakes. They’re solid and reliable in off-road terrain. Plus, you can keep your bike safe by consistently maintaining your ebike.


The Quietkat Ranger could be more, given the price you’re paying for. It’s got a lot of power and torque to play with, along with a suspension system and brakes to keep the ride smooth, in control, and in check. It’s open to customization, like headlights and a bike rack. And all things considered, it’s still a fraction of the price of the HPC Revolution AT.

QuietKat Ranger Wrap Up

The Quietkat Ranger could be so much more with a few more accessories and tweaks, like a better battery. Its 750W or 1000W motor with high torque is gimped by it. When it does let loose, its heavyweight power can pull 300 lbs, while the coil suspension with hydraulics keeps your ride smooth and relaxed while chasing game.
