As my first ebike I really don’t have any complaints. The only issue I’ve had is the chain popping off but I think that’s an easy fix, overall great bike and definitely recommend as an ebike
This bike is a beast. I’m 200lbs and I took it on a paved bike trail that has its share of hills and obstacles. This thing handled like a champ. 15 miles in an hour with it on level 1 and 2 PAS most of the way. Only burned a quarter of the battery. Brakes could be better and you need to make sure all nuts and bolts are snug and secure prior to a first ride. Well worth the price. My only complaint is that removing the battery is a pain. You need to lift the tail end of the bike or lay it down to get the incredibly long battery out of the housing. If that’s the worst of my day, I’ve had a great day..
I just received my Tartan XT9 yesterday and put it together. A nut was missing to install the front light and i had to replace both nut and bolt with standard as i do not have access to metric. The front brake was not working and i had to open the brake assembly which was binding a bit and needed adjustment. Considering it is shipped with the front wheel detached, one can expect to fiddle a bit with some adjustments.
Except for these minor problems, all is now working. No manual means that you have to go online to understand how to work the M5 controller. I only got a few miles since yesterday but so far, i love it and am very happy with the bike. My dog used to run in front of my regular bike and now she runs behind!!
I just bought it because bikedasher on tik tok has it
I bought this bike to handle short commutes of 10+ miles each way if I was beat down and needed mostly electric power. Many e-bikes' claims of mileage are not realistic for the modes people choose and the situations they ride in. I already max out the load capacity with my own weight and also added a cargo rack with a mounted milk crate to keep the rucksack off my back. Given these conditions, I am already over-loading and will not get the advertised range.
I did my own range test on normal inflated tires and varied smooth and rough city streets. I did a 30 mile one way trip on PAS 4 averaging a constant 21-22 mph in 7th gear pedaling with enough effort to ride 1 mph faster than the assist. Stopped maybe 15-20 times. I finished the trip with my battery displaying back and forth 25-50 percent remaining ending with around 25%. For this weight and application, I would trust it to go 40 miles on PAS 4 with some significant pedaling. I think this will certainly be more than capable for my needs if I am full strength... if I am beat down, I would trust it to go 30+ miles. So, this bike will get it done for me for sure.
If I went with those 250 watt motor 36V 10 AH battery powered e-bikes that cost 100 bucks less, I would prolly get not much more than half of what I get with this bike. That level of performance might not get it done for what I need. I believe I will get my money's worth outta this bike.
Works great , installed it on the handlebar post, easy reach!!
I bought this bike from my son he loves it.
It looks nice and he always gets awesome comments on it.
We did have a problem with the motor, The customer service is good we trouble shot the problem, They sent me a replacement part and the bike is working.
We put over a 120 miles so far.
I would recommend, it is a solid bike.
I won't get to wordy here, I don't really do reviews but this bike is great so far! I received it in late Feb the order came weeks before initial shipping date. It was very easy to assemble even tho I did run into a bottle neck on the wheel you use the lock thing I forget what it's called but customer service replied very quickly and have also followed up which is really cool. Back to the bike easily assembled and took it to the road it was very comfortable I am 300lbs that is why I got this bike, multi surgeries and in pain all the time but I enjoy riding and it works perfect to have the electric bike just in case I wasn't able to make it back because of pain I can use the pedal assist and or just cruise it which it got up to 28mph with me on it. Great buy and I love it, still new I can let you guys know about it and some weight loss later :) lol
Absolutely beautiful bike for price. I receive compliments every day on it. A ten year old could put it together, I was really impressed at how much thought was put into making it as easy to assemble as possible. When you open the box you'll know what I mean. I would HIGHLY recommend buying this bike, you are not going to get a better deal for the price tag. Onto a couple of negatives. The tires suck! I've had the bike for a month and had two flats, one of which was last night from running over a staple! I will definitely be replacing the tires with something with a thicker tread and self-sealing tubes. Now my biggest complaint; the front tire is supposed to come with a rod through it and two attaching bolts as per the manual and on-line video. What it actually came with is a really crappy, jerry-rigged quick release that had me looking through the box four times for the missing parts! If it's too loose, the tire jumps two inches to the left when you brake and too tight, binds up the wheel so your speed and mileage are greatly impacted. With this problem I'm getting 16 miles per charge and max speed of 22-23 mph in full e-bike mode. I hope to resolve this really annoying problem with customer support as the front wheel attachment is not as advertised in their literature!!! OK, so my final verdict is this is a must buy e-bike. It's gorgeous and extremely well made and very easy to assemble. You are not going to get a better e-bike for under $1400. The other issues are not significant enough to not recommend it and can be fixed. Buy it!!!
So far the ebike has performed very well. I chose this one after much comparative shopping. A bit of miscommunication during the ordering process was handled swiftly and completely.
I use my bike to go anywhere, i rode it all day and the battery is still fully charged.
Can’t complain, nice electric bike
This bike will be a great benefit for my scouting and hunting in the future. I had it out taking down and moving stands and out on scouting trips for the next season. Overall it is a great bike, but I am going to have to get used to the seat an or adjust the tire pressures. It seemed hard but the ground was frozen today so I'm sure that was the main issue. It was fine the other day. The power is good but I as well as most anyone want more. :-) The battery has held up well and gets me to all the places I needed to go and back. The speedometer is accurate according to the GPS on my phone. Flat ground is goes 24-25 mph. The last hunting trip I had my backpack on and crossbow on that and it worked great getting across and back on the old corn field. No complaints as it is doing what I expect and hopefully it will continue, I see no reason why it wont.
Easy to put together and not too hard to learn to operate. Does not come with an owners Manuel. That's okay though because their video shows how to put together perfectly. Great bike for people on a budget. The bike does weigh around 80 pounds, but with the electric motor you will still go extremely fast. Bike will go 30 mph very easily.
Everything on this bike is incredible! All they need is to print a more detailed manual. Perfect 1st ebike for me and great value.
We are having a great time on this E-bike! Easy to assemble, charges super fast and very comfortable to ride. Great customer service! Asked for a quick ship before Christmas and really appreciate you getting it to us on time!
I wanted a full-suspension, fat tire, electric assisted bike for off-road riding without paying a fortune. This seemed like a good choice. I have put about 130 miles on it so far, more than half off-road. Overall I am happy with my purchase given the price. The hydraulic disc brakes are great. They are a huge upgrade from mechanical rim brakes. Overall the suspension is great, very solid feel even over very rough terrain, and very comfortable. The fat tires work very well in soft terrain where normal mountain bikes just sink in. The thumb throttle is much better than a twist type. The shifter is also great. Power is good from about 5mph to 27mph. The seat if very comfortable. I really like the clamp-on grips, which are also very comfortable. Battery capacity is very good as well. I have never run the battery below 2 of 4 bars (as indicated by the battery itself) but I do pedal and my longest ride was 30 miles (very hilly).
This bike was relatively intuitive to assemble which is good since it came with no instructions, manuals, or documentation. There is an assembly video on the Amazon page for the bike that I found later. It took me about 30 minutes from the time I opened the box, to the time I was riding it. It goes as fast as I want.
I do have one issue though. The display is also hard to read in sunlight, especially with sunglasses on, which is my most common use case. I would prefer a high-contrast black and white display that is more usable in bright sunlight.

So far I'm really enjoying this bike. However I do have one thing that hasn't been stated in any reviews so far. The cover to where you plug in the charger to charge your bike falls out easy and does not have a string or anything to keep it attached to the bike. Otherwise the assembly was easy but I had to search up an assembly video to do that as stated in another review (which wasn't a big deal.) The seat is comfortable and wide. And overall yes I personally think it is worth the money if you are looking for a good bike for daily commutes. And for those wondering “what could I compare the size of the tires to?” they are about the size of a dirt bike's. The speed rating for this bike is accurate but keep in mind that there are many factors that may come into play for the speed. for example how cold it is out (affects battery life) as cold weather does to all batteries, your weight. I`m a pretty tall guy so I weigh around 200 pounds (90.7185kg) and I get a max speed of around 25 mph (40.2336kph). The terrain you are on affects the speed you are able to go as well. Along with the speed its always nice to have some sort of suspension and this bike has it! Over all So far the bike has been great! as a side note I would like to say that the customer service is great! They are very responsive and informative.
i love how it gives back more power then the driver does very happy about that .pedal a little and it gives
me more speed. i thought it might be harder . its a pleasure to drive .its winter now and i still ride it . i
thought it might be harder because of fat tires on it . no i like the tires and seat and shock absorbers are
After a slip up with tracking info, the seller advised me of the new tracking # and said I'd get it 11/18. I got it 11/8. Yeah buddy!
I needed a few things:
• Street legal 750w
• Removable battery w/key
• Quick charge time
• Long range
• Fat tires
• Disc brakes
What did I get?:
• Street legal 750w
• Removable battery w/KEY
• Quick charge time (4-6hr advertised. Not yet
• Long range (longest I've seen advertised yet,
but not yet confirmed)
• Fat tires
• Disc brakes
What I didn't ask for nor require but got anyways:
• Battery system connected headlight
• Regenerative Disc braking
• EASY install-electrical only required one
EXTREMELY intuitive plug connection.
• TOOLS for install! Who even does that?! I
think I only needed one tool for pedal install.
Personal Bonus: Having had an Amazon List named "Black Widow", full of bike parts to upgrade my old bike, I was super stoked to see the spider and web on the bike seat.
I currently rate this as 4/5, 5/5 TBD upon confirming battery life/charge time. At any rate, I would definitely recommend this bike to fam and friends.
Side note: Bike stem in my photos is an aftermarket install.
I did a lot of research on the Net before selecting the Rurui XT10 as my bike of choice. One of the reviews said it best: "The XT10 is on our list of the top four amazing electric mountain bikes under $4,000 for a reason: it’s unlike any other bike on our list." Now I am not a bike expert, whether it be an ebike or a regular bike, but I am pretty good at spotting quality work when I see it, and this bike is built like a tank. The bike was very well packed, and delivery was ultra fast, in fact I received it two days earlier than expected. It was very easy to put together. Assembly included the front tire, handlebars, seat, and pedals. Tools are included. Everything fits perfectly. I wanted to get a bike rack for the rear of the bike, but it was my understanding Rurui doesn't make one. However, welded to the back bike frame are four screw channels for a bike rake. I got lucky, picking a rake unit on Amazon that was a perfect fit. If you are interested in a rack, buy the "Bike Cargo Rack w/Bungee Cargo Net & Reflective Logo Universal Adjustable Bicycle Rear Luggage Touring Carrier Racks 55lbs Capacity Quick Release Mountain Road Bike Pannier Rack for 26"-29" Frames Made By Reliancer". I was pleasantly surprised that the screws of this rake fit the screw channels in the bike frame. I am 100% pleased with my purchase of the XT10 here on the Rurui site, and I saved a few $$$ too by buying it here. Enjoy the ride!...
This product looks great and so far rides great. Only ridden it a little, time will tell.
I recently bought (2) XT10's.... One came with the CST BFT printed tires and the other didn't... The look/appearance the printed tires gives the bikes, were a part of the reason I chose Rurui XT10's. Had no idea I would get one of the bikes without the printed tires... What I keep getting told "it won't affect the normal operation of the bike"... We all know that Right.... Again, I purchased what I saw online. Specs/Price/Appearance all a part of my decision to purchase your product(s). That being said my wife and I are happy with the bikes and hope to put many miles on them.
This ebike is very good quality. It was easy to assemble, considering I'm a 33 yr old female that didn't get any help from others. My only complaint is that the bike didn't come with a manual for the assembly process or the display. Luckily the video on the item's page was helpful. Also, I had to message customer service a few times on how to work the display and they were very helpful. The PDF they sent me should be sent to all customers to avoid confusion. Took it for a ride today for the first time and everything worked great.
Overall, a good deal
