We recently got to have a play on the MATE X bike and, well, it’s a different breed. It’s a BEAST of an e-bike. BIG CHUNKY  4″ tyre, 20″ Wheels, BIG CHUNKY frame and very very fast! Their website states that Big is Beautiful. They’re not wrong at all! They’re right. Very very right!

The MATE X bike is very different to all the other e-bikes that we’ve tested. As as soon as you lay eyes on this machine you can immediately tell just how commanding the bike is. It’s HUGE! The features definitely match is size too. You can go off the regular road and into the beat and track. Thanks to the bigger frame and all terrain wide rim PHAT tires. It’s also built beautifully and comes equipped with a ton of state of the art features and components. The most suprising thing about this beast? It can fold. Yes it can fold. Simply fold the frame and the steam, adjust the seat post and it is done! Furthermore the MATE X will take you wherever you like – up to 75 miles (120 km).



MATE X Quick Features:


The Mate X Bike – The coolest E-Bike

The MATE X bike may look big and chunky but the design is very minimal and has a very very clean look. To complement this look the way that you shift gears is made very simple. They’re built into the grips, so simply twist your wrist to change gear! Not only that the brake levers are easily accessible.

Want to know how fast you are going? How much battery life you have left? How far you’ve travelled? Simply refer to the impressive water and dustproof LCD backlit display on the front of the bike. You can even customise it to your liking! Plus the bike has up to 6 different speeds too. Starting at 0 which gives riders no help at all, moving all the way up to 5 which is full assist. There’s even a built in USB charger! The innovative new speed charger allows for quicker charging, efficient battery consumption!

The Ride

The ride on the MATE X bike is silky smooth too. That’s thanks to the front and rear suspension of the bike. The suspension is very smart as it has an adjustable preload to match the weight of the rider and their riding style. The suspension even has a mechanical lock out for riding smooth roads!

The wide tyres are huge which also help with improved control and handling. The 4″ tyres help reduce the risk of puncture and improves safety on the road. Need to stop safely? The Tektro mecanical disc brakes help with that and only require a single finger to operate, giving the user very strong braking power! Don’t press too hard otherwise you’ll fall off! Ease on that brake!

The bike itself may look big and heavy but it only weighs 50lbs (26kgs), the frame itself is only 6lbs (2.7kg) too! Most of the weight comes from the huge battery:

  • Powerful battery – 48v of lithium ion battery with built in handle and fuse for easy removal from frame.
  • 48v 14.5 aH model (696Wh) offers assited travel of up to 40-60miles
  • 48v 11Ah (528Wh) offers up to 30miles with full electrical assistance
  • It has a plug and play wiring system, allowing easy servicing, maintaining, replacement and repair very easy! Even connect lights and other accessories through it!

Evolve Carbon GT AT Series

Evolve Skateboards are built for power, performance and versatility and the Evolve Carbon GT Series are no different. We got our hands on one that’s a little different to what we are used to. An ALL TERRAIN version!

Off Road

The GT All-Terrain takes performance that it’s known for and moves it into off road! The GT Carbon Fiber deck has built in electrics to keep it down low to the ground, allowing perfect manoeuvrability and stability. Just what you need when riding in rough terrain!

It comes with a HUGE 3000 Watt Twin Brushless Sensored Motor. HUGE 7″ All Terrain Hubs and Tyres. This thing was born off road! The battery will give you a range of 18miles of range per charge. Perfect for an afternoons scurrying around off road! The huge wheels are great for the grassy hills of the UK and the treacherous woods that skatter (?) the uk countryside.  You’ll be surfing on this board in no time, carving up and down the fields.


The Evovle GT All Terrain is a lot of fun, but we are always mindful of doing it safely. There is a “slow” mode for easy control and a safe top speed. This mode is perfect for the first time rider and the beginner. Then once you’ve mastered that you can go on to a mode called “eco” which makes things a little more faster, but at the same time relaxed. Before you become an perfect on it, like you are riding a bike and move into “fast” mode. Then if you really want to push the boat out, head into “GT” mode. This gives you full power and the ability to go up hills of a 25% gradient!


The remote is great too, it gives you an LCD screen which displays important things like mode, range, speed and battery level. This controller is great to hold in the hand too and is very ergonomic and never gets too “heavy” or uncomfortable, just what you need in a controller!

This board is perfect for those long summer afternoons, just head out and have some fun! You’ll definitely enjoy yourself!
