Cruiser-style fat tire bikes have taken the e-bike market by storm, and are becoming more popular week by week. In the year 2001, manufacturers of bikes became more interested in bikes with big and wide tires, and quickly the term “fat tire bike” came into use. Within a very few years, several companies jumped on the bandwagon, and today there are many brands available.
Be cautious, though, as too many brands are “cookie-cutter” electric bikes, and the company is simply buying products from some factory that supplies several brands. The product is then labeled and sold as though it were a unique item designed and built by that brand. Only a very few e-bike brands actually design and build their electric mountain bikes. MAGiCYCLE is one of the few high-quality brands that owns its factory.
Fat tire electric bikes remain extremely popular, and with good reason. These bikes are very comfortable to ride, stable, and easy to balance. Beyond that, the fat tires provide a lot of traction in a variety of road and trail conditions.
There is a downside, though, if you are a person who is small in stature. The traditional cruiser electric mountain bikes with 26" fat tires are not small bikes! In fact, newbies to e-biking will quickly discover that these bikes are rather large and heavy. In fact, a 26" fat tire stands about 2 inches taller than a conventional narrow 26" tire.
Not only are the 26" fat tire cruisers tall, but they are also heavy. Compared to a conventional bicycles, they are extremely heavy. On average, weighing in at more than 70 pounds. The weight is indicative of the sturdy build necessary to ride safely with the assistance of a powerful motor and a heavy battery. The shorter the rider, the more difficult it is to mount and handle an electric bike for sale of this size and weight.
Riders with unsteady balance often feel insecure on larger bikes, especially when coming to a stop. This is usually a result of not being able to touch the ground with both feet without leaving the bike seat. A bike with a smaller frame and smaller tire can help.
MAGiCYCLE Now Provides an E-bike for Smaller Riders
The MAGiCYCLE Design Team recognized the need for a fat tire electric bike to meet the needs of smaller riders and some riders with physical challenges. A bad hip, for example, can make mounting a tall bike nearly impossible.
The Design Team worked long and hard to develop a fat tire cruiser-style e-bike that is more easily ridden by riders as small as 4’10’ and yet is also comfortable for riders up to 6’2”. That makes this e-bike convenient for almost everyone. The introduction of the 20” tire Magicycle Ocelot Pro Cruiser is bringing fresh excitement to e-bike enthusiasts.
This is great news for e-bike fans who have longed for a smaller, stylish, high-quality fat tire cruiser that retains both power and comfort -- this is it!

Choosing Quality Components
Because they control every aspect of design and manufacturing, Magicycle gets to very carefully select the components. Only well-known brand names are invited to supply motors, batteries, LCD displays, brakes, etc. For example, an unusually powerful 52-volt battery comes on every Magicycle. That battery is supplied by the same company that supplies batteries for Tesla. Only high-quality components go onto a Magicycle! That’s a big factor in the confidence Magicycle owners have in their electric bikes.
Another important component is the LCD display, providing all the information you need to safely enjoy your ride. Many brands like to “go cheap” with their display, but not Magicycle. The Magicycle display is in easy-to-read full color (not grayscale), has a very bright screen, and has many features that are customizable to the individual rider. That same quality is consistent throughout the entire list of e-bike components.
The best quality at the best price is a Magicycle priority. This is equally true of brakes, pedals, motors, etc.
Speaking of quality components, the motor is a major component of any electric bike for sale. Again, Magicycle selects a name-brand manufacturer with a reputation for quality motors…long-lasting powerful motors with CE, ISO9000, ROHS, and 3C certification. In fact, the Magicycle motor yields more torque than any other e-bike brand competing with Magicycle.
Imagine owning a motor that has the same amount of torque as an 800cc motorcycle — truly amazing! That’s why Magicycle riders get faster starts for added safety in city traffic conditions. That’s also why the Magicycle Cruiser has such amazing hill-climbing strength.
It's not enough to be only average or good -- MAGiCYCLE aims to be the best. The Magicycle factory uses experts in hydroforming and cataphracted weld joints…regarded as the best welding technique in the world. This means that Magicycle customers receive a high-tech frame that is strong, safe, and beautiful for unequaled riding stability and comfort.
To summarize, Magicycle has exemplary quality control over the entire bike-building process, from design to manufacture to shipping. When a Magicycle is delivered to a new owner, the box contains an e-bike that will last a very long time, giving reliable service and a safe riding experience. Quality matters — don’t buy your e-bike from a brand that does not own the factory.
The MAGiCYCLE Ocelot Pro is the perfect opportunity to own a high-quality 20" Fat Tire e-bike that is true to the cruiser styling. It is the perfect match of features, quality, and economical pricing. This eye-catching e-bike is named after a graceful wildcat…the ocelot. This wildcat is found in the US, Mexico, Belize, and very few other countries. Its name is derived from an ancient Aztec word that literally means “field tiger.” Powerful, graceful, and beautiful, this medium-size ocelot is the perfect namesake for this medium-size MAGiCYCLE.
