The SMART BIG-e is equipped with extra wide tyres that not only gives a soft ride, but can handle conditions others can’t. It thrives in sandy and muddy conditions. Added to that, a ride on the road comes naturally; offering a smooth and enjoyable ride. It appears aggressive due to the enlarged tyres but this noble beast offers that comfortable and stable ride to the biker.
The SMART BIG-e is the gentle giant. It looks intimidating due to its oversized tyres but they also give that soft comfortable ride. Ideal on soft sand, the beach, (snow if you can find it) and mud is the playground of these beauty beasts. The extra powerful motor gives more than enough power to conquer the extreme conditions. It is also an ideal bike to go fishing on the beach.
The model is equipped with top quality batteries (LG) (48V) and 13Ah capacity with a long reach. The components from SHIMANO group set and brakes, BAFANG, LG batteries and Kenda tyres complete the package. The extra wide tyres offer improved rolling resistance and ensure a smooth comfortable ride.
If you are a weighty person, this bike is your answer. Even 150kg is not a problem. But just as much fun if you are not.
UPGRADE: For a more upright riding position, consider the adjustable stem as an optional extra. Consider a carrier and pannier bags as well.
MORE INFORMATION YOU MAY FIND HANDY
Frame: This high precision and integrated frame is built with 6061 aluminum for complete durability. The frame was designed to host the battery within the frame to offer a slick and smooth appearance.
Multi-function LCD display. The LCD (which is the dashboard of the bike) offers a multitude of information to give you full control. The following information is available:
Handlebars with adjustable stem
Timing of the trip
Walk Assist. The bike is equipped with a handy walk assist feature where you push a button and the bike moves at 6 kph to make the push a breeze.
Battery. The battery is equipped with top quality LG lithium-ion batteries for outstanding performance. The waterproof lithium 48V 13.2Ah battery is an integratedsystem that fits snugly into the frame for a stylish look. The battery can be charged on the bike or removed and charged elsewhere. The charge time varies according to the charge it has, but allow 4 hours for this to be safe. The 13.2Ah battery offers more than enough distance between charges. The total amp hours are a staggering 634* which is substantially more than the default of 500Ah. This means longer rides between charges.
*Total Amp hours = Voltage X Battery Amps (48 X 13.2 = 634 total hours)
Motor. The improved high speed BAFANG brushless rear hub drive motor has a powerful 500W output which offers more than sufficient power even under severe circumstances. It is a low noise motor (<60dB) perfectly fitted in the back hub of the bike. (BAFANG is the leading brand of e-bike motors manufacturers).
EVEN MORE DETAIL
Suspension. The SMART-e ENDURO XC front hydraulic fork is fitted with a lock out switch to prevent extra absorption when not required (such as riding on a hard surface).
PAS. (Pedal Assist). The bike is equipped with a sensor on the bottom bracket and based on the level PAS you choice, the motor offers more power as you pedal.
Throttle. The bike is also fitted with a thumb throttle on the right side of the handlebar. The throttle overrides the PAS and gives you instant power when required. The CPS (Calibrated Power System) means the higher the PAS level the more throttle power. It offers a smooth increase in power (no jerking) and is also a safety feature. The throttle is ideal when you need power such as when going up a steep hill, you are in the wrong gear or you want to accelerate.
Saddle. The stylish saddle was carefully selected to offer super comfort, even on longer rides. (You may opt for a larger saddle for extra comfort)
Disc brakes 160
Brakes. The bike is fitted with highly effective disc brakes to take it to the next level of safety. The Tektro 160 disc brakes conform to the highest safety standards.
A cut off switch is installed that disables the power to the motor should the brakes be activated – for extra safety.
Brake lever protector
Brake lever protectors. This sleeve makes breaking “soft on the hands” as if you are wearing gloves. Equally important is that it protects your levers from scratches and other damage.
Gears. The smooth operating SHIMANO gears make the ride a breeze. The gears fitted on this bike consist of 3 chain rings in the front and a 9 speed cassette at the back to offer maximum options to the rider. (A total of 27 gears in total)

Wheels. The bike is issued with the well accredited Kenda 27.5” 2.35” dual-purpose tyres. (We strongly recommend that you get a tyre sealant (“slime”) to prevent punctures. your cycle shop can do this, or yourself or we can do it before dispatching, for R200 per wheel.)
Stem. The stem is a standard 100mm stem which is commonly used. You can upgrade your stem by replacing it with an adjustable stem that offers many options: adjusting both the distance and the height of the handlebars.
Crank protectors. The bike is equipped with crank protectors to prevent damage to the bottom of your crank arm.
