Juiced Bikes RipCurrent S Review

The “S” used to stand for “Speed”, as in “Speed Pedelec”, a way to differentiate it from the slower RipCurrent model at the time. Now both models are capable of reaching 28mph, but the RipCurrent S does have a more powerful motor that peaks at 1,295 watts (vs the 1,036 of the standard RipCurrent).

Comparison

The Juiced RipCurrent S is a fat bike and an electric bike. It can also serve as your daily commuter. It comes with a rack and fenders. The bike is stable at speeds up to 28mph. The bike has a very bright front light. It also comes with a rear light. Unfortunately, the rear light is not integrated and requires batteries. The Kenda tires are puncture-resistant but do not have reflective sidewalls. The bike is heavy. This makes it a challenge for some to maneuver and transport.
