Summary of Reviews

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

20 reasons to buy

  • Say Watt? The Prowler’s 1000W Bafang motor puts out 1500 peak watts of power.
  • An Enviolo CVT (continuously variable transmission) hub provides the Prowler with a 380% gear range, using a simple, step-free shifting system.
  • The Prowler is brought to a stop by strong Tektro 4-piston hydraulic disc brakes.
  • A reviewer was able to easily reach 30mph, using only the Prowler’s throttle.
  • A reviewer was able to achieve 35mph on flats with pedaling and assist.
  • The Prowler comfortably conquers obstacles on huge Maxxis Minion FBF and FBR 27.5" x 3.8" tires.
  • Many bosses and mount-points cover the Prowler’s frame to attach accessories such as racks, a trailer, bottle-holders, bags, baskets and extra batteries.
  • The Prowler’s Bafang display is clear, easy-to-read and its angle can be adjusted.
  • The Prowler is rated to carry a 300lb payload, be it rider, cargo and/or catch.
  • The Prowler’s battery is lockable and removable, for security or off-bike charging.
  • For some owners, the Prowler is easy to assemble.
  • Riders from 5’10" to 6’2” say they love the fit of the Predator.
  • Owners say the Prowler moves very quietly, almost silently.
  • With a wide gear range and powerful motor, the Prowler smashes steep hills.
  • A concealed internal battery gives the Prowler a sleek physique.
  • A tester says the Prowler’s torque sensor is very precise, giving smooth support.
  • Thru-axle hubs stiffen up the Prowler on real mountain bike trails.
  • Wide, 770mm Promax handlebars provide lashings of control.
  • A GT860 air suspension inverted moto-style fork equips the Prowler with 120mm of trail-smoothing travel.
  • The Prowler is draped in Rambo’s own in-house ‘TrueTimber VSX’ camo colorway.

4 reasons not to buy

  • The Prowler is pricey.
  • The Prowler is only available in a single 19.7″ frame size.
  • Information is scarce on the Prowler’s fork, from the little-known brand GTMRK.
  • A reviewer found that the Prowler’s powerful motor ‘chewed through the juice’, sapping the battery quickly.

Bottom line

The Prowler is one of the higher-quality offerings from ‘huntbike’ specialist Rambo. It’s quiet, it’s stealthy, it’s built to silently stalk through the boonies. Bafang’s 1000W ‘Ultra’ motor equips the Prowler with a whopping maximum 160Nm of torque and 1500W of peak power. Most of the Prowler’s components are quality, including the easy-to-use Enviolo CVT (Continuous Variable Transmission) internal hub, which has no steps between gears and provides a 380% range. There are multiple places to attach racks, a trailer, bags, bottle cages and even an extra battery. It’s powerful, but this means the battery can be quickly sapped by over-zealous throttle use. The fork is made by new, fatbike-centric brand GTMRK (details are scarce). Not surprisingly, the Prowler’s feature-laden build comes at a high price.

Rambo Prowler Review: Extreme Hunting, Backwoods Electric Mountain Bike

If you are a hunter, if you are a bikepacker or if you just love camo, you are going to love this ride… Overall, the Rambo Prowler is an impressive machine that boasts not just impressive specs, but a well-thought-out, purpose-built design. The Prowler doesn’t like the roads. No. The Prowler, I think, scowls at pavement.
