Hey guys. Dustin here, CEO of Sixthreezero. Today we're going to be talking about electric bikes with fat tires. Stick around.
All right. So today we're going to be talking about electric bikes with fat tires. But before we do, don't forget. Hit that subscribes button below. Stay in touch with all the content we're coming out with. And we do weekly giveaways, bikes, and accessories. So subscribe to stay in the know.
All right, let's jump in. Let's talk about electric bikes with fat tires. I am seeing them pop up everywhere. And the question I wonder is, do people need electric bikes with fat tires? What are they good for? What are they not good for? Why would you buy one? So let's jump in.
Now, electric bikes with fat tires kind of remind me of SUVs. SUVs became popular, but the reality of an SUV is it's not the best, most efficient mode of transportation for people. But I think the look of an SUV, the size of the SUV, the space of an SUV has become super popular in American culture. But a lot of what the SUV does is completely unnecessary for just driving from point a to point B.
The same is kind of true for fat-tire bikes. They've become super popular now. Originally, these fat tires were really meant for off-roading, going in the woods, going over things, hard gravel, trails, things like that. But now I'm seeing everyone riding these electric fat-tire bikes really all over the place, just normal trips to and from the grocery store, to the beach, things like that.
My opinion, I think they're super cool, actually, and I really like them too. They're definitely not necessary for basic riding, but there are a few benefits to them. One, I would say the fat tires provide a really soft ride. So if you're looking for a lot of shock absorption, you want to feel really comfortable when you go over bumps, you don't feel a lot of it. Fat Tire is a super great option. Sixthreezero has two fat-tire bikes. I personally have one of my garages. I ride it. It really feels like you're riding on clouds. It's like you don't feel any bumps because the air in the tires is like balloons, in a sense.
Now it's going to kill the motor and the battery a little bit quicker because you are dragging a little bit more on the street, more rubber is hitting the ground. So there's just more restriction and there's more drag. Now the question is how much battery charge do you lose? How much slower does the motor go? Who knows? You really would have to just ride it yourself and get a feel for how fast does it kill the battery as a result. Now, depending on if you offset it with a bigger motor, a bigger battery size like we do, shouldn't be an issue to the rider and you shouldn't notice. That's just one of the things that could be a downside of a fat tire bike.
The other benefit is stability. Obviously, if you have a tire that's four inches wide, you're going to have a lot more rubber touching the ground, so the bike's just going to be stabler, which that is a very big positive. I think a lot of people would find that beneficial. So if you have balance issues or you're scared of having thinner tires, the fat tire is a great option. Even though when you look at it, it looks kind of like a beefy monster tire that's meant for taking over rocks and things. The reality is even riders that are older and maybe don't want to fall off or are scared to fall off or scared of balancing, fat tire is a great choice. I see a lot of people out there and I think that's why they've chosen it. And I think it's great.
So and then lastly, obviously, the fat tire bikes are good for the off-road, going on trails, going on gravel. Yeah, basically taking it into parks or up mountains, things of that nature. So if you're going to do off-roading, obviously the fat tire is a no-brainer. But if you want stability or you want a cushy ride, that's another great option.
