Ariel Uy originally posted this story of his 50+km ride with friends on his Nakto Ranger All-Terrain Electric Bike in the Nakto Philippines Facebook group. He says: "I love my Nakto Ranger and it suits my needs as a middle aged dad who still wants to enjoy the thrill of activities like this one without being ultra exhausted afterwards."
Bakas River Norzagaray Bulacan. When I went there the first time I was exhausted to the max. But this time with my trusty Nakto Ranger, the trip was like a breeze.
We found this old house on the way to the river.
Though I did not use pedal assist 60% of the time, I was able to traverse even some mild uphills and steep climbs. The bike surprisingly performs like a traditional mountain bike. I only use the pedal assist just to gain momentum then switch to level 0. The most I went was on level 2 at times on very steep climbs.
After the 49.5kms trip I just used 1 bar of battery power. I was not exhausted at all unlike the first time I went there. In fact after cleaning my bike, I am planning to proceed with my 20kms workout tonight.
This bike serves its purpose for me. I am satisfied with the performance so far. It’s a real value for money. Looking forward to more road trips without being exhausted like I used to. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
