5 reasons not to buy

  • A 6’2” rider felt the X-Large RipCurrent wasn’t tall enough to enable an upright riding position.
  • One owner’s new RipCurrent had a sticking throttle. Juiced replaced it swiftly.
  • A buyer felt that some of the RipCurrent’s instructions were inadequate and not specific to the RipCurrent.

  • Some RipCurrent owners feel the stock saddle is too firm.

Bottom line

This is Juiced Bikes's base model of their RipCurrent bike. It’s a Class 3 e-bike with a top speed of 28 miles per hour. The RipCurrent has a 15 amp-hour battery and a maximum range of 45 miles, compared to the RipCurrent S, which has a 19.2 amp-hour battery and 70-mile range. This bike doesn’t have the RipCurrent S’s included fenders or rear rack but it weighs six pounds less. The RipCurrent is fitted with a coil suspension fork, while the S uses air. Both bikes are specced with the same controller and the same motor, powerful hydraulic brakes and a 9-speed drivetrain. Both bikes are more than capable of riding on-road or off, provided you aren’t attempting real trail-riding antics. They’re similar, but the O.G. RipCurrent can be bought for a major discount over the RipCurrent S.

RadRover Compared to the RipCurrent. My eBike Experience

Both bikes have the same 750-watt, geared-hub motor but the RipCurrent will get you up to 28mph… the RipCurrent is a Class 3 e-bike, while the RadRover is a Class 2… If you’re trying to get from point A to point B in the fastest possible way, a Class 3 e-bike is the way to go… Let’s talk about disc brakes. The Rad has mechanical and the RipCurrent has hydraulic… You’re paying $███ more but you do get quality.
