REVIEW: All Seasons E-xplorer 2016

All Seasons are a brand you’ve likely not heard of, they’re a UK firm who have designed and configured their own electrical bikes and had them manufactured in China.  On seeing the bike and the specification the first thing that struck me was the quality of components used and the comparative value for money of the All Seasons E-xplorer versus other entry level ebikes.  You get an awful lot of kit for your money.

The real draw of the E-xplorer is it’s core components:
FRAME: 650B ALLOY 6061 MTB E-BIKE
FORK:80MM LOCKOUT
BRAKES:MECHANICAL DISC BRAKE
TYRES:KENDA 650B”*2.0
GEAR: DNP 8S 13-32T
F/DERAILEUR:SHIMANO TOURNEY
R/DERAILEUR:SHIMANO ALTUS
SHIFTER:SHIMANO ALTUS
CHAINWHEEL:PROWHEEL 42*34*24T
MOTOR: 8FUN SWX08 DC36V250W
BATTERY:SAMSUNG CELL LI-ION DC36V10.4AH
DISPLAY: KING-METER J-LCD

The 24 speed Shimano gears mean this bike can be used as a standard Mountain Bike, and then utilising the PAS system, some extra help added in from the electrical motor when required.  Mechanical disc brakes and Kendo tyres ensure the bike has capable off-road ability.  But this ebike will certainly suffice as a commuting bike or leisure bike as well.

What about performance and usability?  Well with the 36V battery means you should achieve around 50 miles from one charge which should be fine for most people, and is more than the industry standard of around 30-40miles.

MAX SPEED: ≤25km/h
MAX RIDING DISTANCE: PAS≥50 miles
CHARGING TIME: 5-6 HOURS
WEIGHT: 21.9KG

Summary
All in all this is a very good all-rounder electric bike, providing excellent value for money.  The E-xplorer is competitive in the market on weight at 22kg which puts this bike in the middle of the class for electric mountain bikes and better than some more expensive models.

The bike is available in Black and Silver.

  1. I finally had the chance to road test the All Seasons E-xplorer yesterday at the Southport Flower Show where All Seasons were show-casing their range of electric bikes. The bike was just as good as I expected and even without the PAS system engaged was a great bike to ride. The 5 level PAS system was easy to use and you could really feel the increase in torque as you engaged each extra level of the motor. In my opinion the best bike in the sub-£1500 category by a long way, you get so much electric bike for your money.

  2. I have one of these bikes and it’s great. You do need to get it set up properly before you ride it. Comes in a box so things were not quite right with mine. I live in Derbyshire it’s great for the hills it’s a breeze and it’s given me the get up and go I needed. The pa’s system has a walk assist which is great to help whilst pushing up a massive Hill.
