Magicycle Expands Best-selling Line With Premium, Long-Range E-Bikes

In recent years, cycling has surged in popularity for people of all ages. While many individuals grew up with conventional bikes, lots of riders are transitioning to e-bikes, and why not? E-bikes help you go farther and faster (especially a long-range e-bike) with less effort. They’re also an excellent means of transportation and an environmentally friendly activity.

US electric bike startup Magicycle burst onto the American electric bike scene and found immediate popularity because it answered the call for higher quality e-bikes at lower prices. Magicycle customers now rave about the superior Cruiser line with its inviting mobility and technology. The company’s exclusive frame design, considerable power offerings, and meticulous quality control have all encouraged the passion of more than 14,000 Magicycle fans in its first year.

The Magicycle Cruiser line is attractively designed and provides comfort, well-being, and convenience to its riders. Certainly, the praise for Magicycle Cruisers is well-deserved, as the long-range e-bike are fast, safe, and stylish. You can join the enthusiasm and smiles when you check out the two new Magicycle Cruisers…the Magicycle Cruiser Pro and the Magicycle Ocelot Pro Step-Thru. 

These two recent additions to the Magicycle Cruiser line boast the same genes as the original Cruisers but also feature exciting enhancements, including even more power and range for eriders everywhere.

Meet the Magicycle Cruiser Pro

During its redesign stage, Magicycle retained the best and most popular features of its original Magicycle Cruiser but also accentuated its versatility and effortless pedaling for riders of all weights and sizes in the Magicycle Cruiser Pro. 

The Magicycle Cruiser Pro has a 350-pound carrying capacity, so, if you are a heavier rider, you’ll feel stable and secure while controlling your e-bike. The Cruiser Pro seamlessly integrates cardio exercise into your daily routine, no matter what your e-biking experience level is. The well-received color LCD display remains the same on the Magicycle Cruiser Pro as its predecessor. So, too, does the combination of built-in lighting and inclusive rear rack/full fender package. 

These in-demand features of carrying capacity, LCD display, built-in lighting, and rear package make the Cruiser Pro a top-quality all-terrain fat tire e-bike for commuting, trail riding, and scenic cruising.

To make the original great Cruiser a step ahead of its competitors, Magicycle has accentuated the highly touted motor/ battery power combo of the Magicycle Cruiser Pro.

Here’s a look at the new battery:

  • Hydraulic Suspension Fork

Is your favorite beach path a bit bumpy and abrupt? Don’t worry! The Magicycle Cruiser Pro has built-in suspension in the frame and fork, and its 4″ tires deliver a decadently smooth ride. The saddle, too, contributes to a cushy, supportive ride as part of the overall kit.

  • Hydraulic Disc Brakes

Tektro 180mm Hydraulic Disc Brakes dissipate heat thoroughly and distribute heat more evenly than traditional mechanical brakes. This is due to circulating brake fluid that resists heat and infuses compression in the hydraulic brake system. You’ll also have the confidence of knowing that your brakes are likely to last longer. Many riders attest to increased safety with hydraulic disc braking systems.

Meet the Magicycle Ocelot Pro Cruiser

The handsome Magicycle Ocelot Pro Step-Thru 20” long-range e-bike adds a whole new dimension to the Magicycle Cruiser line. With an exceptionally balanced frame and free and easy riding style, the Ocelot exudes bright day-tripping vibes. 

When you think of an e-bike, do terms like “agile” and “convenient” usually come to mind? As a general rule, e-bikes offer rides that are either deft and nimble, or agreeable and accessible — but not both. The Magicycle Ocelot Pro Step-Thru is an exception.

This pleasurable and relaxing e-bike cleverly blends flexible cruising options with the satisfaction of a small-format ride. This combination allows the Ocelot to be a dependable commuter vehicle, an exhilarating off-road instrument, and an enjoyable touring bike.

Although designed to suit riders anywhere from 4’10” on up to 6’2”, this conveniently streamlined e-bike gets positive reactions from a variety of riders. It does what many other cruisers cannot, offering a viable option for shorter riders while preserving support for riders as tall as 6’2”. For riders ill-at-ease with big 26” cruisers, the Ocelot opens up a whole new world of cruising comfort with appropriate height accommodation, dependable power, and superior quality. 

It’s hard to believe, but the Ocelot advances more battery and motor power than its siblings in the Magicycle Cruiser family. 

Just take a look at the specifications:

Magicycle Ocelot Tech Specs

Magicycle Ocelot riders will appreciate all the high caliber features: 

  • Hydraulic Suspension Fork

This very effective suspension fork utilizes hydraulic dampening to smooth out the bumps and potholes. Combined with the 4” fat tires, riders get a very stable and comfortable ride, taking on highway or forest trails with equal ease.

  • Hydraulic Disc Brakes

Tektro brand 180mm Hydraulic Disc Brakes dissipate heat efficiently and distribute heat more evenly than traditional mechanical brakes. The Tektro brakes are part of an upgraded mechanism, which means you gain complete control over your e-bike and its speed. You’ll experience optimal stopping power and efficiency as well as superior braking performance. 

As an added bonus, Ocelot’s hydraulic brakes are likely to last longer than other braking systems. This wholly sealed fluid-filled braking resists heat and compression. Many riders will find increased safety with the increased stopping power of the hydraulic disc braking system. Their value tends to be greater since they last longer and don’t require as much maintenance over their functional life span.

  • Powerful Hub Motor

Compared to many fat tire, long-range e-bike models out there, the Ocelot is more modest and light. That’s a plus for many riders, and you’ll be pleased to know that the Ocelot absorbs terrain unevenness and bumps and gives you a feeling of floating. 

Add to that the knowledge that its new motor delivers an amazing 96 Nm of torque. You’ll be in possession of more turning force plus more peak power than ever — you’ll find yourself outperforming other e-bikes on the market. So, next time you need to quickly cross a busy intersection, the Ocelot will put the power down with quick reaction starts and ample hill-conquering strength.

  • Upgraded Frame

The Magicycle Design Team has worked long and hard to provide a frame that is soothing, firm, rugged, and secure. The result is tube walls that are as thick as .17 inches and a frame that stays steady and even in sudden braking or steep downhill braking. That’s added assurance for Ocelot riders.

  • Redesigned Battery

Magicycle tested several options and chose a newly designed battery for the Ocelot — you’ll love the result! As you see above, it has been painstakingly integrated into the Ocelot frame. This battery supplies a whopping 750 watts (nominal) of power with 52 volts and 20 amp hours. Ocelot riders will experience an extended range of up to 80 miles, depending on rider weight, wind speed, terrain, and pedaling effort.

Ultimately, if you’re looking for a satisfying long-range e-bike designed for riders of almost all sizes and are looking for a high-end drivetrain, the Magicycle Ocelot Pro Cruiser is a great selection for you.
