These last few months, I have seen some awesome e-bikes. E-bikes have become such a big trend now, and many people regularly buy them for commuting around the city!
Last year, I was introduced to an e-bike company, and this year, I’m here to introduce you to another “Awesome” e-bike from the Vanpowers company.

This Vanpowers Manidae electrical bike is quite impressive, in my opinion. Every consumer would appreciate having this ideal e-bike available for commuting when traveling through the city, checking out difficult terrain areas or just enjoying a smooth mountain journey. You won’t ever need to be concerned about rough riding places thanks to the type of riding power and tires this e-bike is equipped with!
You see, this Vanpowers Manidae electric bike is conveniently fitted with KENDA® 26” × 4.0” K1151 Juggernaut Sport MTB Fat Tires and a potent 48V/750W engine, plus an KMC Anti-Rust 8-Speed Chain!
Now that’s power! There’s no way you wouldn’t get the best on and off performance you’re looking for while riding with a top speed of 28 mph, a 70-mile range that is adequate for weekends of enjoyable off-road riding, a charge time of 7 hours, a pedal assist level of 5, a BAFANG® 750W 85 N·m Brushless Hub Motor, and a drivetrain SHIMANO® Acera 8-Speed with 12-32T Cassette and 44T Chainring… there’s just no way you wouldn’t get the best of the best rides!
The welded aluminum alloy and internally routed cabling for smooth, clean lines are only the beginning of what this Vanpowers Manidae electric bike has to offer its consumers. Its overall design is very distinctive, and I’ll state for the record that when we rode it, it was incredibly silent!
The 672Wh lithium-ion battery with premium LG cells is detachable with keys to lock, which I love the most because this way no one can steal it sad to say!
The bike includes a cozy 31.6 mm, 300 mm seat. The replaceable battery allows you to keep riding your bike without worrying about running out of power as long as you have an extra charged battery. Your charge battery is a 100V-240V/2A Smart Charger and takes 7 hours to have a full charge.
It has a SELLE ROYAL® A194 Freeway Fit Moderate Saddle. The seat guarantees comfort while riding the e-bike and it has just enough width space to cover my buttocks comfortably!
The Vanpowers Manidae electric bike is available in a gray color and has the option to fit a rear rack, which may come in handy for riders like me who loves to carry along certain items when I’m riding around.
When you open the package containing your Vanpowers Manidae electric bicycle, it will be securely wrapped and everything you need to assemble your bike is right at your fingertips.
After removing everything and laying it all out, my husband started the assembly process!
As soon as the front tire was prepared, he lined it up with the brake caliper and rotor and attached it. What a unique approach to install a tire! Then, he tightened the tire using the quick release. All reflectors, as well as the handlebars, paddles, and seat, were mounted.
Now, I will admit that we did encounter a minor issue when it came time to install the throttle. This is because neither the video nor the instructions make it clear that you must first remove the bike’s handgrips in order to install the throttle cord, which is necessary to mount the throttle on the bike’s handlebars. Make sure your brake gear is lined up with the other brake gear and tighten the handgrip firmly. He then made sure to open the wire protection bag and attach the throttle cord to the appropriate throttle port before zipping everything up.
Last but not least, he installed the bell, tested the motor, checked all screws, brakes, and tire pressure. Before long he was off, cruising the snowy neighborhood on his amazing Vanpowers Manidae electric bike.
His first impression riding the Vanpowers Manidae fat tire e-bike was “THIS E-Bike is “BAD” ……I couldn’t help but laugh and think of Michael Jackson’s song “BAD”!
(Night Helper Blog LLC, we do not own the rights to this music)
He claims that switching from pedaling to the e-bike features is seamless and simple and that he appreciates the motor power, the front Hydraulic Suspension Fork w/ 95 mm Travel and Lockout suspension, and the easy-to-read LED display.
According to him, the front suspension handled the rough road pretty well. It accelerates pretty quickly, and the motor is quite quiet.
The throttle was simple to use, and this bike has 5 levels of pedal assistance, which is fantastic because it allows you to travel between 10 and 25 miles per hour while using the throttle. “Remarkable” brake power is available. The brakes can come to a complete stop at the drop of a hat. He also had fun playing with the bell on this bike :0)
The Vanpowers Manidae electric bike net weights is 31K, the color is a Lead Foot Gray, and it has a 19” 6061 Aluminum Alloy Frame, the rims are POWERCIRCLE® Aluminum Alloy Single-Wall Rims w/ 75 mm Width, along with a 720 mm handbar. You have a crank PROWHEEL® 170 mm crank, a drivetrain: SHIMANO® Acera 8-Speed with 12-32T Cassette and 44T Chainring and soooo much more!

This looks cool.
Thanks for the information! This bike sounds amazing.
This bike looks fantastic! My oldest grandson would love to ride a bike like that.
I have heard of the company and had my eye on the bikes. Maybe an electric bike would help me get up this treacherous hill I have to end up walking my bike up, lol
This looks really cool
my bf has had electric bikes when he lived in apartments in town n he loved them. i still want one even though i live in the country because its a smooth ride to the mail box at the end of my driveway lol would be fun for that n visiting neighbors love this
If I could ride I would have me one of these. We have bike trails and also bike lanes on the roads. I would not know how to do any of the tech stuff to keep it running
I want one to go with my husband’s ebike so we could go riding together.
Wha ta nice looking bike.
This is super nice, love it.
These are so cool
I never heard of a ebike before. I need one of these to get around on.
Great looking wheels
I would love to have this. Thanks for this amazing post.
I would love an ebike for my commute. This one looks great.
I’m definitely gonna consider buying one of these for my brother. He would love this.
That sounds like an interesting bike to check out and I love that it’s electric and not so difficult to build.
My son is using electric bicycle since May last year and it’s really the most economical way to commute. And its a wise decision too.
Awesome! This is such an amazing e-bike! The slick design and style are just so great and it looks so mesmerizing! Love the color too! The minimalist makes this so attractive and appealing! Loved it!
Oohhh….I wanna ride an electric bike one day. This particular one looks so cool from here….(it must be the effect of the black colour that it is in)!
I’ve never used an electric bike before. It would be nice to have one although I must admit I rarely have time to cycle.
Electric bikes look like so much fun! I have been looking at different brands, but I don’t know much about them. Thank you for this review!
Definitely something worth considering buying. Just that I am afraid I will get lazy and stop pedaling, in one moment…
Thank you for listing all the specs, the bike looks very sleek. I really like the grey color, and it does give it a “bad” and chic kind of look! I live in a city with various kinds of terrain so I always worry that an e-bike wouldn’t be able to handle the ground, but this looks like it can handle lots of rugged land with relative ease.
I like this bike. It could be a great gift for my brother. Thank you for idea!
that would help someone that does currier work in a large city.
Very cool looking electric bicycle. I’ve seen some of the bigger cities using these for commuting. I’ve never ridden one – but such a cool idea!
What a sleek and beautiful bicycle! I love that it has so many useful details and I can see why this is becoming a huge trend. I certainly wouldn’t mind owning one!

This is cool bike and I remember I tried the electric bicycle before and it was fun.
I’ve never tried an electric bicycle before, but this looks like a great one. It doesn’t look big and bulky and seems like it would be comfortable to ride around on.
I like how detailed you are about the different e-bikes. This one looks easier to assemble, which is a plus for someone who doesn’t like anything too complicated. Me included! Thanks so much for sharing!
i love how sleek and slim it looks while also being very durable!! i mean, look at those tires! i would feel safe
Wow… that thing is so cool and where we live in the mountains something like this is a must as the hills can be tough when riding for long periods of time. Love the style and the color too!
This is a cool bike; I cannot believe how technology has come so far. Thanks for sharing this with us.
Wow! My husband and son are going to o love this for sure! This electric bicycle looks awesome
I’ve tried electrical bicycle and it’s a wonderful invention. It’s fun, useful and easy to manage!
E-bikes are also becoming popular here in my country. This bike looks like it’s easy to assemble, and that’s a plus for me.
This bike looks somehow both very sturdy AND very sleek!
This looks like such a cool bike. I would love to get one myself.
That e-bike not only looks good, but of course it’s good for the environment. I would love to try one!
That looks like an amazing bike. I may need to check in to one of these for myself. I love biking.
What a cool bike. My daughter would want this for sure. She likes riding around.
This would be so nice to have! It doesn’t look like it was extremely difficult to put together.
