eVox KAB 375 Video Review – Unique Canadian Mid-Drive Electric Bike

https://electricbikereview.com/evox/kab-375/ The eVox KAB 375 is a very custom engineered mid-drive electric bike from Canada, rather than pulling the chain like other designs, it runs a stand-alone belt drive so as not to mash gears and it is very quiet. Available in four frame sizes and two color combinations but only high-step, at ~45 lbs I would consider this a light ebike but the efficient narrow tires and lack of suspension make it feel stiff. Hydraulic disc brakes provide smooth, powerful, stops and the adjustable-reach brake levers are handy if you’re wearing gloves or have small hands, unfortunately, I did not see motor inhibitors. Purpose-built frame keeps the battery and motor weight low, most cables and wires are hidden through internal routing, you get rack, fender, and bottle cage mounting points.

Comments

Steve Donovan says:

Sometimes I wonder if it’s wise for a builder to get their name into the ebike community with an example that may not be complete. All you can and should do is give an honest assessment but they leave themselves open to possible criticism that may be unnecessary.

Andrew Hunter says:

i like the separate belt drive but the overall look needs a lot of improvement to justify the price.

Lynn Recker says:

I get the feeling that eVox is trying to be innovative with that belt drive; but in going that route it seems like they may have taken a step backwards instead.

John Moura says:

Nice design! Redundancy in the drive system like the hub motor bikes.

Grape Eyes says:

This bike looks like my grandfather modified his old bike in his shed.

James Mason says:

that’s different

Court, unrelated issue, but it turns out here in Europe we already have the Giant Full-E+ Pro early 2018 models for sale, with the Syncdrive Pro motor, which is supposed to address your biggest pet peeve with the Yamaha system: 110rpm even in ECO mode (120rpm with the 2 most powerful models). I saw it today in store and it looks pretty damn good. Waiting for you to compare it with the “old” Syncro Sport you reviewed on the Full E+1, one of these days… 😉

metamorphicorder says:

my first ebike had right side motor drive. this looks better executed, but its a pain when dealing with rear tube repairs on the road side. its a pain all around but especially on the roadside. unless they are planning to incorporate a seperate gearing mech for the the motor drive this seems to defeat the purpose of a mid drive. if they are, it seems redundant.
