Ecotric is a renowned San Francisco based electric bike brand that prides itself on offering accessible quality bikes that any cyclist can enjoy. The full range of Ecotric bikes, including full suspension bikes and fat folding bikes are made with pride in their California facilities. For this review, we’re going to focus on one of Ecotric’s most popular models the Tornado Full Suspension MTB Electric Bike. Let’s take a look at what sets this bike apart.
The Ecotric Tornado Full Suspension bike earned its moniker for a reason. It is a powerful tour-de-force, complete with a 750 Watt rear hub motor and a large 48V Lithium Cell battery that can provide riding distances up to 60 KM on a single charge. Much like a true tornado, this electric bike is constructed from a lightweight yet durable aluminum frame that successfully isolates chain forces from unique trail inputs.
Unlike similar full suspension bikes (ie: the Rad Rover) the suspension on the Tornado never bobs once you hit the pedals. However, the bike still becomes extremely plush when wheels hit upon roots and rocks, something every trail raider is well accustomed to. Though the Ecotric Tornado Full Suspension Bike is considered an entry level bike, there is nothing “entry” about this unique ride.
Equipped with an alloy suspension fork, rear air shock, and a Shimano drivetrain, this bike performs just as well as pricier $2000+ bike models. Pedal assist and an on-demand throttle give even novice riders a serious degree of control, while front and fear Tektro Hydraulic Disc 180mm Rotor brakes make every ride a safe ride.
A speed sensor and Ecotric Smart LCD system allow you to know where you stand on your ride at all times. Detect speed, keep tabs on battery life, and know exactly what’s going on beneath you. Still a bit uncertain about the Ecotric Full Suspension Tornado?
At the end of the day, the Ecotric Full Suspension Tornado is a solid choice for trail riders or anyone looking for power. With a long battery life and a fair price of just $1479.00, this is an accessible bike for those looking to get into the electric bike sector.
