Can I ride the Jonkershoek on the beach?

Yes you can! There are some tips you can follow to maintain your ebike if you enjoy beach riding, such as:

  • Inspect your e-bike for sand, grit, and water after every journey and remove sand with a damp cloth when you are back from the beach
  • Don’t lubricate your chain before riding on the beach, but rather clean and lubricate it after your beach journey
  • Keep extra tyres and tubes on you to avoid wear and tear on the tyres from sand
  • Lower your tyre pressure to make riding through sad easier and not too tiring

What are the benefits of fat tyres?

Fat tyres are larger than thicker than thin tyres, and have several benefits for those who are interested in them:

  • Fat tyres have flat, smooth tread for safe riding in wet conditions. 
  • Fat tyres provide more cushioning and additional suspension for your bike.
  • Fat tyres are better suited to exercise and provide a better upper body workout.

Where is the battery for the Jonkershoek ebike? 

The battery for the Jonkershoek model is located inside the frame of the ebike, but it is easy to remove for charging. This makes it more comfortable to ride, especially for off road adventures. However, it is a heavier bike because of the battery location, so you will need strength to carry it and ride it.
