BENEFITS OF A MID-DRIVE MOTOR
- Performance. Mid-drive motors are known for higher performance and torque when compared to a similarly powered traditional hub motor. One key reason why is that the mid-drive motor drives the crank, instead of the wheel itself, multiplying its power and allowing it to better take advantage of the bike’s existing gears. The easiest way to visualize this is to imagine a scenario where you are approaching a steep hill. You would change the bike’s gears to make it easier to pedal and maintain the same cadence. If your bike has a mid-drive motor, it also benefits from that gearing change, enabling it to deliver more power and range.
- Maintenance. Your bike’s mid-drive motor is designed to make maintenance and service extremely easy. You can remove and replace the entire motor assembly by simply taking out two special bolts – without affecting any other aspect of the bike. This means that virtually any regular bike shop can easily perform troubleshooting and repairs. On the other hand, if you had a hub motor in the rear wheel, even basic maintenance tasks such as taking off the wheel to change a flat tire become more complicated tasks.
- Handling. QuietKat's mid-drive motor is positioned close to the bike’s center of gravity and low to the ground. This improves the overall handling of your electric bicycle by better weight distribution.
FOLDABLE FOR EASY TRANSPORT
The QuietKat Bandit can be folded down for easy transport in the trunk of a car; then all you need to do is quickly and simply fold the frame and steering column back up to full size, and you’re ready to start riding. Despite the folding frame design, the QuietKat Bandit e-bike is still tough enough to successfully carry a load of up to 300 lbs. This makes the QuietKat Bandit a great choice for those who want to haul cargo, game or tools in and out of inaccessible areas, all while crossing inhospitable terrain.
IMPRESSIVE 750W BAFANG MID-DRIVE MOTOR WITH 3-SPEED INTERNAL GEARING SYSTEM
One of the fantastic things about the QuietKat Bandit is that riders don’t have to compromise on power just because it is a folding bike. On the contrary, the QuietKat Bandit electric bike has an impressive 750 watt Bafang mid-drive motor with a 3 speed internal gearing system for maximum efficiency. Connected to a 48 volt, 11.6 amp hour Panasonic lithium battery, this electric motor has the ability to output up to 1.01 mechanical horsepower, a phenomenal effort when compared to the output of most electric bike motors. The motor can be engaged with a Class II throttle for instant power or by selecting one of the levels of PAS (Pedal Assist).
POWERFUL FAT TIRES
The QuietKat Bandit has been outfitted with 20” x 4” fat tires; these extra wide tires make it possible for the QuietKat Bandit to ride across a sandy beach, up a muddy trail and even through snow. The air suspension fork and mechanical disc brakes add to both the comfort and the safety of the QuietKat Bandit folding bike, while the digital display allows you to select a mode and monitor your travel statistics.

Every QuietKat product comes with a one-year limited warranty against manufacturing defects in materials or workmanship on its frame, battery, controller and motor assembly. This warranty applies only to the original registered owner of the QuietKat and is not transferable.
This limited warranty does not apply to normal wear and tear, malfunctions, or failures due to abuse, neglect, improper repair, improper maintenance, alteration, modification, accidents, or other improper use.
The one-year warranty on QuietKat’s lithium-ion batteries from the date of original purchase does not include damage from power surges, use of improper charger, improper maintenance or other such misuse, normal wear or water damage.
If a component is deemed to be defective or damaged without user error or other improper use, QuietKat will assist in replacing that part. This includes any parts deemed to have been damaged in shipping. We will not replace any part deemed to be damaged by the user.
In the case of a repair or parts replacement under warranty, we will work with the owner to find a local certified bicycle repair shop to make the necessary fix. QuietKat will also cover the associated repair labor fees, only if the scope of service is agreed upon prior to the fix. The owner may also return the unit to QuietKat to make the needed repairs, but will be responsible for shipping costs each way.
All claims to this warranty must be made through Relax and Ride Bikes and can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. Proof of the original purchase may be required with any warranty request. Before making a claim, please contact our service department at email@example.com as there may be a simple fix for the problem. Valid warranty claims will be processed within one year of the initial purchase.
