Real-World Reliability: The Discover 2 Put to the Test

Real-World Reliability: The Discover 2 Put to the Test

At Velotric, we're all about pushing the pedal to the metal, and that’s precisely what Ebikeschool.com did with our Discover 2—but not in the way you might think. They gave "test drive" a whole new meaning by subjecting our e-bike to an epic 'torture test,' turning our e-bike's review session into what felt more like an extreme sports event. It wasn't just about seeing if the Discover 2 could handle a few bumps and splashes. They truly tested its mettle, challenging every aspect of its design and durability with tasks you might never dream of attempting--like towing a 5,000-pound truck!

While the Discover 2 (spoiler alert!) passes these tests with flying colors, we understand that not all our riders are looking to haul heavy loads or turn their daily commute into a Herculean feat. So, let's explore what these extraordinary capabilities mean for you in everyday situations.

And just for the record, while our Discover 2 can endure a bit of 'torture,' riding it is anything but!

Testing The Limits With a 5,000 Pound Challenge

Testing The Limits With a 5,000 Pound Challenge

When it comes to testing the limits, the Discover 2 is not one to shy away. The challenge? Towing a 5,000-pound truck.

On paper, the Discover 2 boasts a towing capacity of 880 pounds, setting high expectations for its performance. The test was a spectacle of power and perseverance. Starting with throttle only, the Discover 2 didn't just move the truck— it practically dared it to game of tug-of-war. Sure, we weren't breaking any speed records, but seeing the bike haul a load that outweighs it by leaps and bounds? That's the kind of overachievement we like to see.

Although balancing was a bit of a challenge, the Discover 2 held its ground, showcasing its motor’s robust capabilities and extraordinary resilience.

From Extreme to Everyday

So, what does pulling a small elephant’s weight in truck form mean for you? Well, if the Discover 2 can handle that, your daily hauls—be it a rear basket packed to the brim with camping gear, moving gardening supplies across town for your landscaping business, or hauling a hefty load of artisan goods to the local market—will feel like a breeze.

Thanks to its robust 750W motor and a smart torque sensor this e-bike doesn't just promise power; it delivers a performance that transforms mountainous tasks into molehills. Whether you’re headed out for an adventurous weekend or running a small enterprise, the Discover 2 turns 'tough' into 'manageable,' proving that no task is too big when you’ve got the right wheels.

So go ahead, plan that epic road trip.

Testing the Waters With a Submersible Battery

Testing the Waters With a Submersible Battery

When the Discover 2’s battery took the plunge in an extreme waterproof test, the tension was palpable. Could this battery really handle a deep dive and come out swinging?

The answer was clear as soon as it was powered up post-dunk. Moments after retrieval—wet yet unscathed—the battery was dried off lightly and reinserted to the bike. Not only did it light up like nothing happened, but it also zoomed back into action with the throttle on full blast. Despite its soaking, the battery held up to its IPX7 rating brilliantly.

No More Rainchecks

Now, we don't expect you to take your Discover 2 for a ride along the bottom of the Pacific Ocean—or any ocean, for that matter. But knowing that you could handle a splash (or a full-on dunk) means everyday mishaps like sudden showers or a rogue sprinkler won't even make you blink.

The Discover 2’s IPX7 battery isn’t just about resilience; it’s about reliability. This certification means you don’t have to cancel plans just because the weather turned. Go ahead, brave those rainy commutes, or hit the muddy trails without a second thought. Your Discover 2 is not only equipped to handle the elements—it makes them part of the fun.

From Torture Test to Trusted Transport

The Discover 2 isn’t just for show; it’s for every kind of rider. For the daily commuter, the bike offers reliability and power, ensuring a smooth, worry-free ride to work or around town. Adventure seekers will find the Discover 2’s ruggedness ideal for exploring new terrains without fretting over the integrity of their ride. From its impressive towing power to its resilience against the elements, its tested durability makes it a top choice for anyone who demands a lot from their bike.

If you’re intrigued by how an e-bike can tow a truck or take a dip and keep on ticking, you won’t want to miss the full spectacle. Head over to our YouTube channel for the comprehensive review of the Discover 2. And if you want to see the bike for yourself, check out a Velotric dealer near you!
