What Are Juiced Bikes?

Juiced Bikes are electric bicycles that have been designed for speed and performance. Unlike traditional electric bikes, Juiced Bikes are much lighter – some weighing less than 50 lbs – and can travel up to 28 mph. Juiced Bikes also have powerful motors that make them easy to pedal, even when going up hills.

How Do Juiced Bikes Work?

Juiced Bikes have a battery-powered motor that provides pedal assist to the rider. When the rider pedals, the engine kicks in and provides an extra boost of power. The amount of power the motor supplies depends on the Juiced Bike model; some Juiced Bikes have a motor that provides up to the standard 500 watts of power, while others have a stronger engine that provides up to 1000 watts to provide you with a speed of 35 mph.

The Juiced Bike batteries can last up to 100 miles on a single charge, depending on the model. And if the battery does run out of juice, don’t worry – you can still pedal a Juiced Bike like a traditional bike.

A Brief History of Juiced Electric Bikes

Juiced Bikes is a California-based American-owned e-bike company established in 2009 by Tora Harris, a high-jump Olympian, and Princeton-graduated mechanical and aerospace engineer. Instead of focusing on making fast money, Tora wants to offer “riders a chance to be more mobile and explore with greater confidence, and less worry about making it back home.” And with a passion for creating a cleaner transportation option for the public, he developed the first RipRacer. When their product took off exceptionally well, the company expanded its e-bike models to suit different consumer needs and budgets.

Why Are Juiced Bikes Becoming More Popular?

There are a few reasons why Juiced Bikes are becoming more popular. First, as battery technology has improved, electric bikes have become more affordable and their sales have surpassed that of electric cars. Second, as Juiced Bikes have become more popular, more Juiced Bike-sharing programs have been launched, making it easier for people to try them. Finally, Juiced Bikes offer a unique combination of speed, range, and portability, making them appealing to various riders. Whether you’re looking for an alternative to driving or public transportation, want a fun way to explore your city, or just a test ride, Juiced Bikes offer a unique and convenient way to get around.

Where Can You Ride Juiced Bikes?

Most Juiced Bikes are designed for city riding and can be ridden on any surface, including pavement, dirt roads, and trails. However, some Juiced Bike models – like the CrossCurrent X – are specifically designed for off-road riding and may not be suitable for all surfaces.

Before you ride a Juiced Bike, you must familiarize yourself with the Juiced Bike laws in your state or city. In most states, Juiced Bikes are classified as “electric bicycles” and are subject to the same rules and regulations as regular bicycles. However, there are a few states – like California – where Juiced Bikes are subject to different rules and regulations depending on the bike’s speed and motor power.

Do You Need to Purchase Motor Vehicle Insurance to Ride a Juiced Bike?

You do not need to purchase motor vehicle insurance to ride a Juiced Bike, and you also don’t need a license to ride a Juiced Bike. Juiced Bikes are classified as bicycles, not motor vehicles, and are therefore not subject to the same rules and regulations as motor vehicles in most states. However, it would be best to double-check with your local DMV to ensure that Juiced Bikes are classified as bicycles in your state.

In addition, you should check whether you need to wear a helmet while riding an e-bike. Some states, such as California, require all cyclists to wear a helmet, while others, such as Illinois and New Hampshire, do not have any bicycle helmet regulations.

How Do You Charge a Juiced Bike?

Most Juiced Bikes come with a standard 110-volt charger that fits into any household outlet. It takes about four hours to charge a Juiced Bike fully. Some Juiced Bike models – like the CrossCurrent X – come with a faster charger to charge the Juiced Bike in about two hours.

How to Choose the Right Juiced Bike

Now that you know a bit more about Juiced Bikes, you may be wondering which Juiced Bike is right for you. Here are a few things to consider when choosing a Juiced Bike:

Your Riding Style

Are you looking for a Juiced Bike to use as your primary mode of transportation? Or are you looking for an e-bike for leisurely weekend rides? Consider your riding style when choosing a Juiced Bike.

Your Location

Where do you plan on riding your Juiced Bike? If you’re looking to ride off-road, you’ll need a Juiced Bike with wider tires and suspension. Any Juiced Bike will do if you want to ride on paved surfaces.

Your Height

Juiced Bikes come in various frame sizes. Choosing a Juiced Bike that fits your height is not only more comfortable to ride but also safer. If you’re unsure which size to get, you can always test-ride a few different models before making your final decision. Here is a quick calculator if you need help finding the perfect bike for your height.

Your Weight

Juiced Bikes have weight limits. Choosing an e-bike that can accommodate your weight is crucial as overloading a Juiced Bike can damage the motor and battery.

How Fast You Want To Go

Juiced Bikes can travel anywhere from 20 mph to 32 mph, so choose a model that matches how you use your Juiced Bike. If you’re unsure how fast you want to go, consider your riding style and choose a Juiced Bike accordingly. As mentioned earlier, your city and state regulations can also influence the bicycle speed decision.

The Range You Need

Juiced Bikes have a range that varies between 20-40 miles, so it’s essential to choose a Juiced Bike that can travel the distance you need. If you’re unsure how far you need to go, use Google Maps to calculate your daily commute range before browsing for an e-bike.

Your Budget

Juiced Bikes range in price from around $500 to $4000, so choosing a Juiced Bike electric bicycle that fits your budget is most likely the final deciding factor.
