SHARE YOUR EXPERIENCE:
A fat tire e-bike brand that was founded by Denny Liu in 2014, Ontario, CA-based Mokwheel is a name that’s still flying under the radar of many electric bike enthusiasts. The word is getting out, however, and Mokwheel is being recognized for its innovative and affordable designs, outstanding warranty, and friendly customer support team.
Mokwheel bikes are designed with versatility in mind and they can tackle a variety of terrain. They come well-equipped with name-brand componentry from industry-leading brands like TEKTRO and SHIMANO, and they’re well-constructed and built to last.
Mokwheel’s rides also featured integrated Power Station Technology, allowing riders to utilize the company’s 1000W inverter to connect to foldable solar panels or recharge electronic devices like phones, lights, and cameras.
Unlike some other startups in this industry, Mokwheel seems to understand the importance of customer service — something that always gets our attention whenever we’re taking a look at newly introduced e-bike ranges. Mokwheel seems to be doing a great job thus far of keeping its customers happy, and all of the company’s rides come with a generous 2-year warranty. Mokwheel also offers a 15-day return policy for added peace of mind.
Overall, Mokwheel is an e-bike manufacturer to watch in 2023 and one that we feel has a very bright future. In this review of Mokwheel’s 2023 lineup, we’ll check out each of the company’s fat tire e-bikes and compare features, pricing, and performance.
