  • The large 48V 21Ah battery is appreciated for its 30-60mi maximum range.
  • A tester says the Ibex will “haul ass” on climbs while loaded with cargo.

6 reasons not to buy

  • A tester had to dismount in order to negotiate some tight turns, due to the Ibex’s large size and 75lb weight.
  • One tester confirms that the heavy Ibex is “a bit slow” to get going, notably on climbs.
  • Testers note the “high” sticker price on the Ibex, QuietKat’s most expensive bike.
  • The Ibex does not come with integrated lights.
  • A tester who hunts would like to see a dark green or camouflage color.
  • The Ibex’s display can be difficult to see in full sun.

Bottom line

The QuietKat Ibex is an off-road beast, furnished with capable front and rear suspension, obese 4.8” tires, a 1000W motor, and a 48V 21Ah battery. One tester deemed it “empowering”, for its ability to open up new terrain. Testers were blown away by the Ibex and had a lot of fun riding it. Even so, one reviewer had to dismount the bike to negotiate it around tight turns. Everything on the Ibex is big; the motor, tires, battery, 75lb weight, price tag, and almost consistently, its capability.

Quietkat Ibex – The Most Capable Full Suspension E-Bike Fat Bike Yet

This bike rips! A positively jaw-dropping experience… the MOST FUN I have ever had on two wheels. It looks like a beast and has more power than I know what to do with. I was able to reach 52mph. It’s a dream to pedal, drive and rove around on. It is THAT awesome. Plus, it has been a great commuter bike.

QuietKat Ibex Electric Bike Review

The high sticker price might be outside the reach of tighter budgets, but when it comes to fat tire e-bikes, there isn’t another one quite like the QuietKat Ibex, with its incredible power and performance. It’s a large bike so it takes extra effort to make tight turns so we occasionally had to dismount to move it around.
