The distance you can travel on a single battery charge largely depends on the terrain, weather, the rider/s weight, and how much you use the throttle vs. pedals. For example, if you’re riding throttle-only off-road, you’ll get fewer miles out of a single charge than if you were riding with pedal-assist on a flat paved road.
Standard 15Ah battery capacity
On average, you can travel 30-60 miles on the standard 15Ah battery included with every bike. That’s usually more than enough for the average day-to-day rides!
Long Range 21Ah battery capacity
On average, you can travel 50-90 miles on our Long Range 21Ah battery. This is the largest battery capacity available for a Class 3 electric bike. The cost to upgrade is $500 at the time of purchase, or if purchased separately, $1099 plus shipping.
Rhinos are equipped with 15Ah or 21Ah high capacity Samsung Cell Lithium Removable batteries. These batteries are some of the most energy-dense and reliable on the market and are designed to let you go further, more efficiently.
That said, typically with lithium technology (like in our batteries), you will see a reduction of up to 15-20% of battery capacity after around 500 full charge cycles. The 500 charging cycles are additive, so charging your battery at 50% up to 100% means you're only consuming half of a charging cycle.
If you think you’ll use your bike a lot, it might be worth adding our Long Range 21Ah battery to your bike during checkout as you’ll be able to travel further between charges.
