What was once a niche product is now fast becoming an option for just about any kind of bike you can think of, from folding bikes to BMX bikes to road bikes, and more recently, fat bikes as well. And one company, MOAR Bikes, out of Santa Monica, California, is combining a folding feature with a fat bike, and adding a full set of premium components to yield an "all-in-one electric bike solution."

The MOAR folding e-bike is a full-sized aluminum-framed fat bike powered by either a 500W rear hub or a 750W mid-drive motor (depending on the model), with both front and rear suspension, disc brakes, 1,000-lumen dual LED headlights, brake lights, turn signals, a horn, waterproof electronics, an integrated rear rack, and three different battery capacity options, plus a host of other features. With your choice of capacities for the 48V lithium ion battery pack (10Ah, 13Ah, or 17Ah), a MOAR e-bike will go a minimum of 30 miles per charge (10Ah battery using electric drive only) and up to 85 miles per charge (17Ah battery, in level one pedal-assist).
The MOAR folds "to half its size" for transport or storage (and has folding pedals to further decrease its folded size), and weighs about 60 pounds without the battery (battery adds between 9 and 11 pounds), so it's not a lightweight, but it's also said to be a powerful and comfortable e-bike to ride, thanks to its full suspension and 4" tires. According to the company, its bikes offer "30% more torque, power and efficiency than the competition," and although fat bikes were once only for sand and snow and mountain bikers, the company believes its models are well positioned to be "the ultimate everyday e-bike."
