Why Fat Tire Ebike? - Kakuka Rampage

So what exactly is a fat tire ebike and why is Kakuka planning to launch Rampage Fat Tire Ebike?
What Is A Fat Tire Ebike?
First and foremost, the term "Fat Tire Ebike" refers to ebikes that have tires that are thicker than average. The tires are usually between 8 and 12 cm wide and the rim size is 26″ . However, it is less about the rim size and more about the tire width.
In the tires themselves, the air pressure is kept relatively low. The ride comfort of the fat bike is high even without a suspension fork and the tire volume neutralizes impacts very effectively. At the same time, the tire lies better on the ground, which ensures very good traction and low rolling resistance, making it easier to drive on challenging terrain (like snow and sand where normal ebikes would sink).
