The Super73-Z Adventure Series is a top choice among older teens and young adults thanks to its undeniable cool factor. With its rugged looks and powerful 600-watt motor, it feels almost like riding a stripped-down motorcycle. This e-bike can tackle most terrains at impressive speeds. One drawback is that if you're going over rough trails, you'll probably notice its lack of full suspension. The front fork and fat tires help, but it can still be a bit of a bumpy ride. The comfortable seat is a welcome addition, and it's long enough to fit an extra rider in the back.
Yes, CNET gave its sibling, the Super73-R, a lackluster ranking -- don't go for this brand if you're looking for a pedal-friendly bike -- but the Super73-Z listed here has a lower price while still maintaining the Adventure Series' head-turning aggressive design and ease of control over speed. Build out of the box is relatively easy, but keep in mind that you'll likely need to tune it up after breaking it in.
