Summary of Reviews

We have read all expert and user reviews on the QuietKat Warrior. In summary, this is what cyclists think.

10 reasons to buy

  • The Warrior is available in a 1000W unclassified version or in a Class-1-or-2-compliant 750W model.
  • Warriors are equipped with 5 levels of pedal-assist and throttle on tap.
  • The Warrior’s mid-drive Bafang 1000W motor can potentially put out 160Nm of torque.
  • Humungous 4.5” Kenda Juggernat tires handle sand, snow, dirt and mud.
  • The Warrior is available in two sizes: S/M and M/L, to fit riders from 5’6” to over 6”.
  • The Warrior is quiet, making it well-suited for hunters stalking even the most dangerous game.
  • With a payload of 325 lb, Warrior riders can bring home the bacon, literally.
  • The Warrior hauls tall and heavy riders up hills with ease.
  • For all your camouflage needs, the Warrior is available in either ‘Sandstone’ or ‘Poseidon Dry Camo’ colorways.
  • Reviewers appreciate that the Warrior’s battery is internally housed within the bike’s frame.

5 reasons not to buy

  • Owners said the Warrior’s 70lb weight could make it difficult to ride and lift for smaller riders.
  • Some owners and one reviewer received their Warrior with damaged parts.
  • Experiences with customer service are mixed.
  • A Warrior owner experienced grass and weeds getting caught in their drivetrain.
  • The Warrior uses 2-piston mechanical disc brakes with large 203mm rotors. If brakes were 4-piston and/or hydraulic, they would be more powerful.

Bottom line

The QuietKat Warrior is a mid-drive, fat-tire e-bike. It's available in an unrestricted 1000W model or as a Class-1-or-2-compliant 750W version. This bike is offered in two sizes and in two camouflage colorways (for desert or forest environments). The Warrior is tailored to the needs of hunters and is reportedly very quiet so that riders can stealthily approach their prey. The Bafang BBSHD 1000W Mid-Drive Motor cranks out plenty of torque but this is not a performance electric mountain bike for gnarly trail riding. With gigantic 4.5 inch tires, it's more suited to hunting trips and adventures. The Warrior’s power output can be put to work by towing equipment and/or a trailer to haul game. Professional reviews are scarce, but it seems most buyer impressions are positive. However, aftermarket customer service, parts replacement and maintenance options may be limited.

How Quiet Is the QuietKat?

Today we’ll be doing noise tests between the QuietKat Warrior 1000 and the Polaris ACE 570. We want to see exactly how much quieter this electric bicycle is when it’s travelling through the woods… Conclusion: While the ACE was quieter than expected, the QuietKat was barely audible at 25 yards which will greatly reduce your chances of alerting game.

How Good Can a QuietKat Climb and Dealing With Sand

I have a QuietKat Warrior which is a 1000 Watter and so far I’ve been very happy with it… These have great brakes on ‘em, big disc brakes… well, I’m impressed. It made it up. I’m breathing a little bit but less than if I’d walked up that.

QuietKat Warrior Unboxing and 1st Tests

Now, I’m not a small guy. I’m 6’4”, 290lb. I was worried this bike would be too small for me but this thing’s a beast… So I’m just going to go up this hill without pedaling at all… on 3… So I’m up on the incline, still about 14 miles an hour, I’m not pedaling at all, it’s dropping to 10… So now I’m pedaling but not very hard, up to 16 miles per hour… And now without pedaling at all on 5… 20 miles an hour… almost at the top. 16 miles an hour. Very impressive.

Riding QuietKat Bike to Farmers Market

Review: QuietKat Warrior 1000

Range was far better than I had expected and actually matched QuietKat’s claims of 18 miles unassisted… It feels like a real machine, more akin to a motorcycle than a wimpy mountain bike… The Warrior 1000 is a high-quality, ingeniously designed bike and system. It’s well worth the price to quietly get afield.
