Comparing the Ampd Brothers Ace Electric Bike: Is It Australia's Best Fat Tyre Bike?

The Ampd Brothers Ace Electric Bike, since its debut in 2019, has consistently impressed riders with its quality and performance. Here’s a comprehensive comparison highlighting why the Ace stands out in the crowded electric bike market.

Key Features of the Ace Bike

  1. Motor and Power: Equipped with a 750W Bafang motor, the Ace offers robust performance, delivering 80NM of torque, ideal for climbing hills—a feature where many competitors fall short despite claiming higher torque.

  2. Battery and Range: The Ace boasts a 20AH Samsung 21700 battery, offering a true tested range of over 80km, significantly outperforming other brands that claim ranges of 100km+ or more but often fail in real-world conditions. The battery’s smart BMS ensures safety and longevity of 5 years+ compared to the typical 2-4 years of others.

  3. Build Quality: The Ace uses high-grade aluminium for both the frame and battery housing as well as stainless steel spokes providing durability and a premium feel unlike the plastic or steel components used by many other brands.

  4. Design and Convenience: The Ace features an IP65 waterproof rating, integrated wiring, adjustable cup holders and custom-designed components such as independent front forks and a state-of-the-art controller with advanced motor algorithms.

  5. Safety and Visibility: Dual-beam headlights and brake lights enhance visibility and safety, surpassing the basic single-beam setups of other bikes.

  6. Additional Features: Upgraded Shimano Rapid Fire shifters and Altus derailleurs ensure smooth and reliable gear changes. The Ace also includes aluminum pedals, rims and mudguards, adding to its rugged, all-terrain capability.

  7. Service and Support: Ampd Brothers offers a comprehensive 2-year warranty and support through over 70 service centres, whereas many competitors provide limited online-only support.
