An electric bike for hunting can be an effective way to stalk your game silently and carry large hauls with minimal strain. Yet, despite the benefits of electric bike hunting, choosing the best model can be tricky. Contributing factors like weight, battery distance, and noise all play a vital role in determining the right e-bike for you.

By combining a carbon fiber frame with a powerful electric motor and long-range battery, the HERO electric bike allows you to traverse more terrain over long distances. And with power-assisted capabilities, it can also help prevent sweating and exhaustion.

Read on to find out how the HERO electric bike could be the perfect companion for your hunting expeditions.

How the HERO Delivers a Silent Advantage

Being able to approach your game silently is vital to the success of any hunt. Unfortunately, ATVs and side-by-side (SxS) vehicles are loud; a typical ATV produces between 85 and 96 dBA.

Furthermore, when you use a vehicle to transport a non-electric bike to your destination, you may be tempted to drive the whole way there instead of parking further away. As a result, you increase the risk of scaring off your game.

Here are three ways the HERO electric bike can help you keep a low profile:

Powerful Performance

The HERO is available in two frame styles: the Step-Through and the Trapeze. The step-through frame has no horizontal top tube, which makes it easier for riders to get on and off the seat, and the trapeze is a durable frame with a stylish design.

Both frame styles can fit a 750w mid-drive motor (160Nm torque) or a 1000w rear hub motor (100Nm). While both electric motors provide outstanding performance, the mid-drive motor is quieter than the rear hub motor, making it more suitable for hunting. Why? Because the direct output of a rear hub motor produces resonant noise, while a 750-watt mid-drive electric bike is driven by a chain system and therefore quieter to operate.

As well as being quieter than a rear hub motor, the 750w mid-drive motor has a torque sensor that learns and adjusts to your pedaling style. By automatically adjusting the power output of the electric bike, you receive the pedal assistance you need to tackle any riding scenario.

Lightweight Construction

Most electric bike frames are made from aluminum alloy, a composite material infused with foreign materials – usually silicon and magnesium – for enhanced strength and corrosion resistance.

While aluminum is a superb material, the HERO’s carbon fiber frame is 36% lighter. It’s also meticulously engineered to diminish wind resistance and absorb vibrations, providing a smoother, more comfortable ride.

If you are using your electric bike to transport large hauls, such as any game you collect during a hunting trip, then a lightweight carbon fiber frame can help make this task easier.

Integrated Batteries

Hunting often requires you to travel long distances, possibly for several miles and hours at a time. Fortunately, this is where the HERO Excels. Featuring an 864Wh integrated, the HERO can ride up to 60 miles on a single charge and it comes with a portable charger, which can fully recharge the battery in four to five hours.

The benefits of an integrated battery include:

  • Sleek, modern profile that blends in seamlessly with the frame.
  • Protection from the elements including dirt, dust, grime, and rainfall.
  • No chance of the battery getting caught on vegetation such as bushes, tree branches, and tall grass (also helps with noise reduction).

Are you hunting for several days? You can easily recharge the battery overnight and use the electric motor at full charge the next day. And if riding for just one day, the battery will provide several hours of uninterrupted power.

All electrical components on the HERO, including the motor, battery, and cables, are certified by TÜV Rheinland to meet UL 2849 Standards. This globally recognized certification is the highest safety endorsement for electrical components on e-bikes.

How the HERO Enhances Your Hunting Experience

There are many advantages to using an electric hunting bike. They can help you save energy, ride further, stay comfortable, and carry large hauls. As one of the best fat tire electric bikes, the HERO offers all of these benefits and more.

Save Energy

When riding a non-electric mountain bike, you must use the full force of the pedals navigate steep hills and technical terrain. As a result, you may get tired sooner than if you had the assistance of an electric bike.

Thanks to the HERO’s powerful motor and pedal assist mode, you can conquer any riding scenario. With the 750w mid-drive motor, the torque sensor automatically adjusts to your pedaling style, so you don’t have to pedal as hard to get where you need to be.

Considering the average hunting trip can last for several hours or even days, an electric battery can help you conserve energy and ride for longer. Furthermore, you are less likely to sweat and spread your natural scent, so animals are less likely to detect your presence.

Expanded Range

With all that extra energy on your side, the HERO electric bike lets you ride further. If traveling by vehicle, you can park further away from the target destination and ride there instead, thus reducing the risk of scaring away your game.

Also, with the long-range 864Wh battery, you can ride up to 60 miles on a single charge. Even if the battery does run out, you can continue to ride with just the pedals while you recharge the battery. In four to five hours, the electric motor is ready to use again.

Full Suspension Comfort

"HERO ebike features a double suspension system

To absorb bumps and vibrations, the HERO has a versatile dual suspension system. On the front is a hydraulic front fork, which helps absorb energy when you ride over bumps and land jumps. Meanwhile, the rear suspension provides further support in the back.

As well as keeping you comfortable off-road, full suspension makes it easier to access a wider variety of trails. This gives you the flexibility to go off the beaten path when you need to. You can scope out the perfect spot to set up camp, watch the scenery, or follow the trail of potential game.

Enhanced Carrying Capacity

The HERO electric bike has an average carrying capacity of 400 lbs (181.4 kg), which enables you to carry heavy loads.

For reference, a typical adult female white-tailed deer weighs between 90 and 200 lbs, while their male counterpart weighs between 150 to 300 lbs. Depending on your local area, you may be able to carry at least one adult deer or another animal of a similar weight range.

You can also increase the carrying capacity of the HERO by attaching a support trailer to it. These trailers come in various weight capacities and tire widths, so you can choose one that matches your riding conditions and transport needs.
Other accessories like bike rack panniers and waterproof backpacks can increase your carrying capacity, too. This’ll make it easier for you to bring food and water, navigational equipment (compass), ammunition, knives, first-aid kits, and camping supplies.

Eco-Friendly Exploration

Aside from being loud, ATVs and SxS vehicles are also bad for the environment. Not only do they emit harmful carbon emissions into the atmosphere, but they also directly damage off-road trails, plant life, and wildlife. The tracks left behind ATVs can cause soil erosion and running over vegetation can disrupt the stability of certain ecosystems.

The HERO electric bike is much quieter than an ATV or SxS vehicle. And since it’s lighter and contains only two tires, it’s also much gentler on off-road trails and the surrounding plant life and wildlife. More importantly, the HERO does not produce harmful carbon emissions.

How to Use the HERO E-Bike for Hunting

Here are a few tips to help you get the most out of the HERO during your hunting trips:

Plan Your Route

Before you go hunting, plan your route and share it with a friend or family member. Your route should clearly outline where you’re going, what game you’re hunting, and the day and time you plan on returning. If your plan changes along the way, let your close contact know so that they can update your plan on their end.

Use Power Assist Wisely

When searching for your game, use the power assist function moderately. This way, the battery and motor will last longer, you’ll make less noise, and you’ll navigate difficult terrain more safely. This is especially important when riding through dense vegetation, which can shield potholes and pitfalls.

Maintain a Safe Speed

Whether riding off-road through a new spot or a local favorite, always maintain a safe speed. Riding slowly gives you more time to react to sudden environment changes, such as oncoming vehicles and passing wildlife.

Familiarize Yourself With the Controls

Before your hunt, become familiar with the features of the HERO electric bike. Learn how to use the throttle, recharge (and replace) the battery, set the desired pedal assist mode, and apply the brakes safely.

You should also know how to adjust the front and rear tire pressure. This will enable you to adjust the tire pressure to suit different terrain, especially if the weather changes from dry to wet.

Charge Your Batteries

Be sure to charge your primary battery before you go hunting. And do the same for any other electrical equipment, including your smartphone, GPS device, and lighting equipment. Don’t forget to bring your battery charger, too.

Hunt Safely and Confidently With HERO

Destined to shatter boundaries, the HERO electric bike is the perfect companion for hunters. Equipped with a powerful motor, long-range battery, and a lightweight carbon fiber frame, the HERO has everything you need to ride further and tackle even the toughest terrain.
