  • Taller riders fit well on the Nomad.

6 reasons not to buy

  • The Nomad is available in one 19” size that may be too tall for some riders.
  • A slight lag was experienced when riders engaged the Nomad’s throttle or pedal-assist.
  • Some riders found the Nomad’s Tektro saddle to be a tad firm.

Bottom line

Nomad owners enjoyed using this e-bike for everything from hauling hunting rifles up remote logging roads to toting groceries. Bafang’s torquey 750W mid-drive motor sees riders through loose terrain and up steep off-road ascents. The Nomad is available in two camo colorways for hunters, in addition to a plain gun-metal gray option for everyday riders. With its low gearing, the Nomad is primarily aimed at hunters and off-road adventure types. Professional reviews are scarce but owners generally seem satisfied. Experiences with aftermarket customer service and assistance are mixed.
