If you’re in need of a high-quality electric bike for all terrains, there is certainly a gem for you in QuietKat’s assortment of electric hunting bikes.

When you’re hunting, you surely need to go away from the road into the wilderness. Going on foot isn’t really the way to go - first of all, it is near to impossible to carry hunting gear while hiking, going through mud, and trying not to scare your prey away.

Speaking of scaring and pushing the animals further into the forests - ATVs, trucks, Jeeps, etc., are often used, but they are too noisy. That’s why electric bikes are perfect for hunting.

Of course, they are not all the same - some are for the most extreme conditions, and some are also made for mountain trails, exploring, etc.

Not sure which QuietKat is for you? I’ve compiled the list of the best QuietKat hunting bikes (again, not limited to hunting) so that you can make a knowledgeable decision about the purchase.

Who is QuietKat?

Before we begin, I want to say a few words about the company.

Sometimes wrongly referred to as “Quiet Cat,” or even “Quiet Kat,” QuietKat is a company that is committed to providing its customers with premium-quality compact e-bikes and related accessories.

As their name suggests, the bikes they produce are quiet for a stealthy and successful hunting journey.

Without further ado, you can get to meet the best QuietKat electric hunting bikes below!

Choosing the best electric dirt bikes, whether for kids or adults, requires a little bit of due diligence. There are several factors you’ll want to consider if you want to end up with the right dirt bike offers:

The Best QuietKat Electric Hunting Bikes in Broad Strokes

1. QuietKat Warrior

QuietKat Warrior E-bike

"Best Overall"

The newest and upgraded Warrior by QuietKat is one of the best-selling and most popular releases in 2020, and for a good reason.

This bike can be praised on all fronts, starting from the improved and modernized frame geometry that focuses on even weight distribution for a trouble-free ride.

Next, the ode goes to the Adjustable Coil Suspension that prevents any vibration, even when you’re on the most uneven terrain out there.

There is an elegant all-black variant, as well as the camo one if you want to blend in the environment completely while you’re hunting.

It is designed for a 300-pound load carry, which means you can bring with you every bit of your hunting gear. The maximum speed is 25 MPH.

Pretty impressive, huh?

You can track the battery life on the convenient display. Oh, and this is one of the most powerful batteries for e-bikes on the market!

2. QuietKat Apex

QuietKat Apex

"For the most difficult terrain"

The Apex 1000 stands out as one of the most powerful electric bikes for hunting on the market, together with my previous pick, the Warrior.

They are both embellished with the title “1000” that stands for their incredible 1000W motor. This means that they will easily overcome any trouble on the road (or off of it).

What they also have in common is the maximum speed of 25 MPH, 300-pound support, and a 48V/11.6Ah battery.

The most significant difference between them is in terms of construction. The Apex features a slightly more rigid frame, and what accounts for the reduction of vibration here is Mozo Air Suspension, equally efficient.

One of its immense strengths lies in the durable stainless steel drive chain.

Finally, you can get a camo version of the bike for the ultimate camouflage apparel.

3. QuietKat Ambush

QuietKat Ambush

"Stay unnoticed"

The next QuietKat bike fits very well in your idea of an excellent hunting bike.

Whether you’re a sit-and-wait ambush kind of hunter, or you prefer an aggressive approach, this model assists you with many useful and well-thought-out features.

First and foremost, there is a fat-tire system with a 100mm Coil Suspension Fork and Mechanical Disk brakes. The top unassisted speed is 20 MPH, which is pretty satisfactory.

By the way, this bike (and all other 750W picks) are not considered motorized vehicles in the US.

It can handle as much hunting gear as the previous two models that remain unbeaten in terms of power, but the capacity of all three models is 300 pounds. 

Besides, its Pannier Pack has a 50-pound loading capacity, which is not something to be sneezed at. The Pannier Bags that hang on either side of the rear wheel are waterproof and, therefore, perfect for hunting. You can carry quite a lot of accessories with this one!

4. QuietKat Rover

QuietKat Rover

"Stable and Stealthy"

Another mid-range pick, the Rover 750, offers consistent performance with a classic QuietKat signature.

All the boxes of desired characteristics are checked - 48V/11.6Ah battery, an impressive 750W motor, sleek digital display that gives you an overview of how much time before a recharge you have left.

It is also possible to load it up to 300 pounds, which means you will not have to make any compromises on the functionality while on the go.

The only potential downside that I want to mention is that Rover has only a single gear (unlike all the previous choices). It can reach the maximum speed of 20 MPH.

By now, you’re familiar with the visual side of QuietKat bikes. The prevalent color options are charcoal and camo, and the Rover is no different.

5. QuietKat Ranger

QuietKat Ranger

"Best Mid-Range"

If you’re looking for a less costly option to assist you on your hunting trail, consider buying the Ranger 750.

It is one of the famous 2018 models that are characterized by the unassisted speed of 19 MPH, 7-speed gear system, and a Mechanical Disc efficient brake system.

The ability to carry 300 pounds cannot go unmentioned here, either.

The sleek frame that comes in two sizes (17 and 19’’) has the modern and quite beautiful QuietKat logo on the sides, which adds to the attractive look of the Ranger.

What’s more, the coil shock absorption and the stainless steel chains can withstand each and every terrain.

6. QuietKat Predator

QuietKat Predator

"Blend In Perfectly"

What makes the Predator such a stealthy electric bike (as its name suggests), ideal for hunting circumstances?

Well, to start off, the camo variant blends pretty well with the environment for the predator effect.

Next, there are 9 speeds that can easily withstand any trail you wish to follow, controlled by the powerful Bafang BBSHD 750W mid-drive electric motor.

At the maximum pace of 19 MPH and with a long-lasting battery, you are sure to cover vast distances before having to recharge this bike. And you’ll be notified when the battery runs out on the large and intuitive digital display that this model has.

Moreover, the 300-pound loading capacity caters to every hunter’s needs.

All in all, the Predator is another quality choice that helps you stay undetected by your prey.

7. QuietKat Bandit

QuietKat Bandit

"Best Compact"

All of these QuietKat electric bikes are undoubtedly excellent for hunting. But not all of them are compact and portable - some are a bit heavy, which is understandable, considering what they offer.

If you’re looking for the most compact QuietKat electric bike for hunting, search no more than the Bandit.

The frame of the bike itself is the smallest out of all bikes on the list, but what makes the Bandit the most versatile choice is the fact that the frame and the steering column are entirely foldable.

More importantly, this does not mean that you need to accept any trade-offs: loading capacity is the same as for most of the QuietKat electric bikes (300 pounds). It features a carbon belt drive and a powerful 750W motor.

The Bandit won’t make a sound while you’re cruising through the woods!

8. QuietKat Ridgerunner

QuietKat Ridgerunner

"Best Premium"

I cannot deny the fact: the all-new Ridgerunner comes at a very steep price.

But investing in such a quality and durable bike will eventually pay off, especially if you’re leading an adventurous life. You will get yourself a companion that will withstand virtually everything.

It is capable of passing through mud, sand, snow, and water. In case you’re wondering - yes, all of these QuietKat bikes have passed those four weather tests, along with all kinds of terrain.

This unbelievable electric bike offers 1000W of power, and the top unassisted speed I reached was 28 MPH. That’s the highest speed I’ve seen from any QuietKat bike!

As for the range, it can go about 25 miles unassisted and up to 50 miles with pedal assistance until you have to recharge it. Of course, this can be tracked on a large digital display.

Despite being one of the most powerful three bikes on my list (along with the Winner and Apex), Ridgerunner weighs less than both of them, so bonus points for that.

QuietKat Quantum

"The Most Versatile"

Next up is another model that comes with a bit of a lavish price tag, but it is also perhaps the most advanced QuietKat electric bike.

It is not made only for mountain trails and hunting - it feels as if it was made for racing, too.

The geometry of the frame is so carefully constructed and implemented that I can say this bike has the most dynamic shape.

Equipped with 150mm of front and rear suspension, the Quantum won’t allow you to feel any shaking and vibration while riding, even in the roughest terrain.

What you also get with this purchase is the Funn package that includes Funn handlebars, grips, pedals, and a remote seat post made of highest-quality materials.

With this one, you can choose between 1000W and 750W of power, as well as a 17 and 19-inch frame.

10. QuietKat Villager

QuietKat Villager

"Best Budget-Friendly"

The Villager is more budget-friendly than my previous choices, but it is also less powerful and less adapted for most demanding hunting.

It will be quite enough, though, for occasional hunting. It is not the most advantageous electric bike in QuietKat’s assortment, but it will surely help you while climbing the steep inclines.

The ergonomic Step-Thru frame design means that this bike will be comfortable for you regardless of gender, and it also guarantees a quick get on and off - which is sometimes crucial for successful hunting.

As I mentioned, it offers less power than the aforementioned bikes, more precisely, 500W. If you think this might not be enough for high altitudes, do not worry - this motor has enough power, and it is enhanced with 203mm disc brakes for your overall safe experience.

QuietKat Ripper

"Best Entry-Range"

Last but not least, the Voyager is another one of those QuietKat electric bikes that belong to the more compact side.

At 54 pounds and with a folding 16-inch frame, it will be a piece of cake to move around with the Voyager.

Just like QuietKat’s larger electric bikes, it features a 750W motor, 48V/11.6Ah battery, and a Shimano 7-speed gear system.

The weight limit is the same as the standard (300lbs), but I would say - do not overload it. Smaller models like this one can become a bit unstable when you use the full loading capacity. There’s still plenty of space for hunting gear (and the hunter).

The mechanical brakes are a quick and secure way to stop yourself when you need to, and I suggest opting for the camo variant for the most stealthy and victorious hunt.

QuietKat Voyager

"Portable and Fast"

Remember the QuietKat Ranger?

Well, the Ripper 2020 is its smaller younger brother.

It is just as good, and it features the same construction as the Ranger, with a couple of differences.

Namely, it is a bit less powerful with 500W, but it offers the same quality shock absorption with the adjustable Mozo Coil Suspension Fork and Tektro Mechanical Disc. Also, the hub-drive motor provides a direct power and is independent of the chain, which results in a consistent performance.

Another difference is that the Ripper has only one speed setting, but this does not mean that it cannot develop higher speeds. 

The manufacturers advertise this size of the frame, 15’’, as sized specifically for riders who are under 5’6’’, but I found it pretty comfortable, and I’m around 6’2’’. I’d say that this one is for the hunters who want to own a compact and easy-to-transport electric bike.

Final Words

I hope that you’ve found the QuietKat electric bike that is most suitable for you and your needs in this round-up of the best QuietKat hunting bikes.

Whichever one you get, you won’t be wrong!
