Magnum MI5 Electric Mountain Bike

Sporty Affordable Performance

The growing popularity of electric bikes worldwide is evidenced by the newest addition to our offerings that hail from the Middle East. Magnum Bikes is a seven year old electric bike brand from Israel with production facilities in both Germany and China. These folks have established themselves as purveyors of affordable quality ebikes. After our own testing and research we couldn’t agree more. The MI5 is an impressive electric mountain bike that will hold its own in virtually any on or off-road situation. As an entry-level mtn. ebike it is sure to satisfy. The 350 watt Bafang geared motor provides ample torque, and the Samsung 36V 13AH battery offers plenty of range for your adventures. Its equipped with hefty Schwalbe 27.5” tires and decent Tektro mechanical disc brakes. A full 27-speed drive-train insures that you’ll be able to tackle steep climbs with relative ease. A better-than-basic front suspension fork supports that scenario as well.

The MI5 has a nice feel at the handlebars – solid and surefooted. This is a good starter ebike that can evolve via component upgrades over time into a really great bike; the frame and electric drive system merit such a possible strategy. If you want to climb onto a durable road and/or trail-ready ebike with sporty overtones at a sub $2k price point, the Magnum MI5 could be the bike for you.
