Magnum Metro+ 48V 700c Electric Bike Review

a bit like
this is the Magnum Metro plus 48 volts
Magnum is a US brand designed in Germany
made in China somewhere and popular in
New Zealand the ui5 which is the
previous generation bike the live step
is probably one of the most popular
bikes maybe second to the smart motion
II city but it’s certainly a very very
popular bike and well loved by those who
bought them in this next generation
Magnum have stepped up to 48 volts over
36 volts in the previous iteration what
this effectively means is more power
when there’s a constraint around the
electronics 48 volts means that you can
supply about 1/3 more power to the motor
and so you get up hills faster I’ve been
very impressed so far with the spike in
the way that it rides and and its power
it absolutely smoked it up my Grafton
gully hill test I haven’t looked at the
times yet but I’m pretty confident it’ll
be one of the fastest bikes I’ve tested
there
they’ve also gone with this one for a
means style frame and I hate to use that
term because anyone can ride this bike
of course but it has got the traditional
cross bar and they’ve gone for the 700c
wheels when I’ve tasted different bikes
others similar configuration having the
bigger wheels definitely makes it feel
more stable on the road and a little bit
more comfortable too they’ve gone with
schwabe marathan tires which are nice
pretty puncture proof and in
long-wearing
they’ve gone with hydraulic brakes this
time as well I’m ticked ro brand with
the cutout switch so that it stops the
motor stops when you pull the brakes up
a little bit they’re smooth and powerful
and and perfectly adequate and this time
as well they’ve moved away from betting
light it is something called des kit
I’ll turn the display on so that you can
see it it’s nicely laid out display
tells you what you want the speed is as
big and central and you get to see
everything else you you might possible
want possibly want all controlled
through this fairly neat and low-profile
remote here you can scroll through the
options of two different trip times and
the overall time you can see your
battery voltage at the moment it’s forty
nine point five it was at 52 and when I
was freshly charged six different levels
of power assist even on one it’s got a
fair amount of they’re all for start
this bike probably needs a throttle and
I suspect that is mean to be one here
and because of this little clue here but
this being a demo bike they’ve probably
taken it off
and because sometimes having that
throttle might surprise people a little
bit it’s also got a an adjustable steam
here it’s very easy to adjust the the
height and and rake off the stem I’ve
got it a bit done further because that’s
how I prefer to ride really nice rack
it’s wide enough to fit things without
them flopping off comes with bungees I’m
sure you’ll be able to hook a penny on
there no problem at all
nice mudguards again that dares kid
motor it looks very similar to a bear
thing rear hub so I wouldn’t be
surprised if it actually is a betting in
disguise everything seems to be just
fine it’s got a little guard to to
protect the derailleur and the and where
the power comes in to the rear axle nice
well go pedals decent-sized platform
pigs aren’t too sharp and it’s got
reflectors on you’ll see this is my six
which is this generation the old ui5
wasn’t the fifth generation this is six
also want to mention this battery
damn it’s a 13 empower battery which
doesn’t sound like anything remarkable
but remember it’s running at 48 volts so
if you’re looking at it in watt hours
that’s over 600 watt hours of battery
that’s actually pretty jolly good and
and the other thing about this bike is
its price at two seven nine nine
as it stands here that is remarkable
value it’s one of the cheaper bikes you
can get and if you look at it there’s
really nothing and to fault it it’s got
everything you you want it’s got a
decent sized battery so the heavens
skimp there it’s got tremendous power it
really is impressive up hills it’s got
these nice tires that are puncture
resistance she won’t be mouthing and
that’s quality stuff everything about it
is actually very impressive I believe it
might even come with a suspension
seatpost as well although this one being
the demo model tend not to put a seat
post on because you can’t get it low
enough with the seat post on sir
the most in my bikes tend to just have a
normal fixed seat seat post
the only criticism I have and this is a
seems to be a magnum thing is to make
the light such that you have to manually
turn them on so this headlight you have
to turn it on and off this little switch
on top I don’t know why didn’t I just
leave them on it would be so much better
similarly around the back here you’ve
got to turn this light on and off
manually it’s not powered by the main
battery either so you know it’s got a
little can see through here it’s
actually got regular old batteries now I
imagine they last quite a long time but
it would be really nice if if it could
just be powered by the motor so by the
main battery and just came on when you
turn the bike on so here we have it 48
volt Magnum it’s also available by the
way in similar configuration to the ui5
and in that one it has the the the low
step frame which is a very popular frame
it’s been copied by just about every
other brand as well and it has the 26
inch balloon tires it’s probably a good
idea to do that and for smaller riders
they might find this one a bit tall you
know you do need to cater to smaller
riders to this one I think it’s you get
it in one size I’m reasonably tall and
it fitted me just fine safer but shorter
I probably want to go for the the metro
low step version which is the 26 inch
wheel one
and really as I say it is an absolute
bargain at two seven nine nine these
sell in the u.s. at two thousand US
dollars if you do the maths that works
at it and once you’ve included the
exchange rate and GST that’s over three
thousand dollars so we really are
getting a steal here under the three
thousand dollars I think this is
probably the one of the best bikes that
you can get at the moment in New Zealand
I’ve had an opportunity to ride it a
fair bit now and still very impressed
and the speed and power is fantastic
even one out of the sixth power of
systemics
is perfectly used as you going along at
a nice pace I would thoroughly recommend
this bike
and they’ve been told with starting in
the bike not a stroke sensor it’s a kite
and then he starts giving evening
Sidwell into something around about 36
this is the steep part of course
25
there was a pretty good run I’ll have to
say
