With fat tire e-bikes being a dime a dozen these days (or rather, many dozens of dimes per single – but still all over the place), it can be difficult for newer e-bike brands to differentiate themselves from the competition. With only a couple of years under its belt and a catalog chock-full of fat tire e-bikes, it’s fair to say that Troxus has such a challenge with the Explorer. We dive into the bike’s features and take a look at what separates it from the rest in this Troxus Explorer review!

As a Class 3 e-bike with throttle power up to 20 miles per hour and pedal-assisted speed up to 28 mph, the Explorer is seriously expeditious! Its 750W rear hub motor has super-speedy acceleration and a responsive cadence sensor for quick access to its substantial power.

We’ve come to expect such speed from most fat tire e-bikes, but the Troxus Explorer kicks things up a notch by featuring a full complement of quality components. Shimano, Bafang, and Tektro: these are just a few of the big names we see on the bike’s spec sheet, and all make parts with demonstrated performance and reliability.

We were seriously impressed by the Explorer’s uphill capability when pedaling, too. It’s not uncommon for e-bikes to struggle in their lowest pedal-assist setting, but for us, the Explorer confidently handled hills even in PAS 1.

Our Explorer model is designed for those who are looking for an efficient way to get around, get some exercise, and get a little boost along the way. The powerful 750W efficient hi-torque rear hub motor reaches top speeds of 28mph, and the 48V/ 20AH battery provides a range of 30-62 miles, depending on rider weight and assist level used. 

The Explorer is a Class-3 e-bike with 28mph max speed, and throttle assistance that provides five different power-assist levels. An LCD display with three brightness levels, lets you always know what power level you’re using, battery level, and the usual cycling computer details.
