Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the Juiced RipCurrent S Step-Through. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

13 reasons to buy

  • The geared hub motor has a high peak output of 1300W.
  • The RipCurrent S Step-Through has a max range of over 70 miles on Eco mode.
  • This bike can be programmed as a Class 2 (20mph) or Class 3 (28mph) e-bike.
  • The frame fits heights 5’4” to 6’1” but one tester says it can handle 6’4” riders.
  • One tester appreciates that the throttle is active with pedal assistance turned off.
  • Experts praise the smooth power delivery from the cadence and torque sensors.
  • Reviewers say that Tektro hydraulic disc brakes provide ample stopping power and modulation.
  • The 52t chainring and 11-32t cassette provide enough gearing for pedaling at high speeds, according to one tester.
  • One user says the 1050-lumen headlight is very bright.
  • The battery has a hidden compartment for an Apple AirTag, making it convenient for owners to increase security.
  • Juiced chose an air suspension fork instead of a cheaper coil fork which is typical at this price point.
  • An upright position, gel saddle, and ergonomic grips make for comfortable riding, according to one expert.
  • Several reviewers like that the 4” fat tires and air suspension allow for light off-road riding.

4 reasons not to buy

  • The power button on the battery is inaccessible when the battery is in the frame.
  • One expert would prefer to see Shimano drivetrain components at this price, instead of off-brand L-TWOO.
  • The taillight isn’t integrated and runs off external batteries, disappointing several reviewers.
  • One expert says the big battery eats into the space made available by the step-through design, and mounting bottle cages makes the problem even worse.

Bottom line

The RipCurrent S Step-Through is a fat-tire commuter that’s suitable for a wide range of riders and riding styles. It wins praise for its comfort, off-road abilities, and smooth, powerful motor. It’s not the most affordable fat-tire e-bike, and the drivetrain quality is questionable. However, it has more power and range than others in this category. Despite some design shortcomings, the RipCurrent S Step-Through is an interesting option for riders who want a fast e-bike for commuting and weekend off-road fun.

Juiced Bikes RipCurrent S Step-Thru! (Complete Review)

For the price, Juiced offers… much more performance on and off trail for the rider that wants to do more than get from A to B. For bikes with a hub motor, this is probably the best spec bicycle you’ll find in a step-through frame.

At this price point, it is not a value-priced e-bike, raising the bar in quality of components, range per charge, and overall functionality compared to much of the competition.
