Jansno X50 Electric Bike Review

Rate this post

In this review, I am going to review the Jansno X50 electric bike. The review will encompass aspects such as unboxing, assembly, features, riding experience, and other essential points. So, stick with me until the end, and let’s get started.

Unboxing

What’s in the box

Let’s unbox the electric bike, inside the box, the stuff includes the following

  • The electric bike
  • Little mobile holder
  • Paddles
  • LED Headlight
  • Turn Signals
  • Bike Lock
  • Two Amp Charger
  • Charging Block
  • Skull face mask or Bandana
  • Multi-tool
  • Inflator
  • Fender

I did notice that some items in the unboxing are quite weird and have never been seen before in other electric bike packages, such as the mobile holder, skull face mask, and bike lock. I don’t plan to wear a skull face mask while riding. However, it’s crucial not to overlook the battery, which seems to be floating freely at the bottom of the box, a common occurrence in many electric bike reviews.

As for the assembly, the electric bike comes with a lot of zip ties. I find satisfaction in removing zip ties – how about you? Now, let’s move on to the assembly process.

Assembly

Let’s begin the assembly with the tires and axles. The front axle is a traditional quick-release with a thin three-millimeter through axle. On the other hand, the rear axle is a solid bolt-through axle, requiring hand tools for wheel removal. The front axle is designed for quick wheel release, while the rear axle needs tools for removal. The electric bike has a classic motorcycle feel, and the graphic on the side of the box does a good job of representing its appearance.

Moving on to handlebar installation, I’ll be setting up the rest of the electric bike for a test ride to demonstrate the riding experience. For the stem setup, a standard four-millimeter Allen key is needed. The stem is rotated 180 degrees to the rear for safe shipping. Once aligned, I’ll torque it down to about 5 Newton meters using a torque wrench. Hand tightening with a little extra force will suffice if you don’t have one. The stem on this bicycle is similar to a regular bicycle stem, making it easy to replace with a longer or shorter one if desired.

Now that the stem is aligned, let’s move on to installing the handlebars.

There is some knurling in the center of the handlebars, and that knurling will assist me in aligning the center of the handlebars, ensuring they are closely aligned with where I want them to be.

Now that I have the headlight installed.

The seat reminds me of those banana bikes from the 1950s, something akin to the bikes you might see on Stranger Things.

For this seat, there are four 10-millimeter nuts on threaded bolts already attached to the seat. Before putting on the seat, make sure to connect the controller by joining two connections.

The front fender comes inside a bag, and within that bag are the nut and bolt that hold the front fender to the front forks. There’s already a bolt in the front bolt-hole, and you can use any of them.

The e-bike comes with some standard pedals. In this case, your blue pedal is the left pedal, and you also have one for the right. When installing the pedals, be careful, as one of the threads is reversed compared to what you would typically encounter.

Another easy way to install pedals is to get them started. Once you get them started, backpedal until you can’t backpedal anymore. Then, use the wrench to finish the installation.

Lastly, I am going to inflate the tires, and though I don’t have a tire pressure gauge with me if you have one at your house, aim for about 20 psi in those tires. If you feel like you want to go lower from there, you can adjust accordingly. However, considering the speed of the electric bike, you might want to maintain a slightly higher pressure than you would on a Fat Tire Bike. This is important as these tires are subjected to a higher load, especially when navigating curves, and you wouldn’t want one of those tires to pop while you’re moving at a fast pace.

Design and Features

Jansno X50 Electric Bike Review

The Jansno X50 electric bike features a sleek carbon-steel frame, giving it a modern and stylish appearance. It is equipped with 20-inch and 4-inch wide fat tires, allowing it to navigate various terrains such as snow, sand, gravel, and all levels of terrain. The e-bike has a distinctive motorcycle-like design, and its banana seat adds a classic touch, evoking a traditional bike feel. Despite its classic aesthetic, the electric bike incorporates modern features without compromise.

Weighing around 80 pounds, the e-bike’s substantial weight makes it suitable for parking in your garage. It boasts a powerful 750w rear BLDC Hub motor and is powered by a 48V 14A battery pack, which takes approximately 6-8 hours to charge. The use of LG cells in the battery ensures reliability and reduces concerns about battery damage or circuit issues. The bike is designed with user convenience in mind, featuring a removable battery that can be easily charged at home. It includes a power switch for safety, an LED indicator displaying the remaining battery capacity, and an anti-theft lock system for added security.

You can see the substantial chain ring, which is advantageous as it reduces the likelihood of ghost pedaling with the e-bike. I added pegs to the rear, and if you’re interested, I can provide the link.

Whether you know it or not, a good electric bike manufacturer typically provides a quick disconnect feature, facilitating the removal of the rear wheel when necessary.

Its LED headlight is impressively bright and also has a horn integrated at the back, it also features turn signals, a rare inclusion in electric bikes under $1000, which is fantastic. The rear light, with its integrated brake light, functions well. However, I do wish the brake light was slightly larger, as illustrated in the images below.

Handlebars

On the left side of the handlebars, there is an A20 display that provides information such as current speed, estimated range, remaining battery level, and details about the 5 assist modes. Mode zero allows you to completely shut off the electric gear, enabling manual pedaling for exercise. The A20 display also shows the odometer, trip details, and voltage.

For advanced settings, you can press and hold the plus and minus keys to enter the advanced settings menu, where you can customize various parameters. However, I recommend referring to the manuals or watching YouTube videos about the A20 display to gain in-depth knowledge and insights into its advanced features.

On the right side, It gets a 7-speed Shimano gear, and I found the process of switching between gears to be smooth and seamless.

Braking

The electric bike is equipped with a rear shock suspension, which lacks air adjustability. The front features manual suspension, but it effectively absorbs road vibrations and particles during rides. The bike is fitted with mechanical disc brakes, which perform excellently considering the price point. Overall, there are no complaints about the mechanical brakes, and they contribute to the bike’s satisfactory performance.

Some people complain that the fenders are flappy, but I don’t have that complaint as the fenders effectively get the job done. They are beneficial for off-roading, preventing rocks from hitting the back and front of the bike.

Riding Experience

I took the Jansno X50 for a test ride. It was pretty slow in first gear, so I went slightly downhill and bumped it up to third gear where it rushed to 22 miles per hour. In fourth gear, it reached 25 mph, and fifth gear topped out at 30-32 mph. If you don’t hit 30 mph, you didn’t unplug the wires under the seat, as there is a 20 mph speed limit. You can enjoy higher speeds by unplugging the white and black wires, though this is quite difficult on other e-bikes. One thing to note is that the pedals can hit the ground when cornering at high speeds.

I tested the e-bike on normal roads and rode it on the trail. There was some squeaking from the rear suspension, likely because I’ve been running it hard, hitting jumps, and probably overloading it. But it just keeps going – great! The e-bike handled the trail well, with easy-to-navigate handlebars – amazing.

Next, I tested it on gravel to see how it performed. It bumped and handled smoothly, feeling very stable. Then I tried hill climbs on a 19% grade to test the throttle and see how far I could get before pedaling. I put it in an easy gear and got up to 20 mph on throttle only. The throttle doesn’t cut out at 20 mph but at 12% grade, it was already struggling a bit. The e-bike had some trouble on the steep hill with just the throttle, but pedaling made climbing easy.

I tested the electric bike’s ability to climb a 10% grade hill twice using full throttle only. It came down the other side each time, allowing me to test the brakes. I covered the 10% grades at speeds ranging from 9-13 mph. On the first descent, I stopped the brakes but couldn’t get the bike to skid. The stopping distance ranged from 10-12 feet. On the second downhill test, the stopping distance ranged from 25-30 feet – not too bad.

Finally, I tested the Jansno X50 on normal roads, off-roads, trails, gravel, mud, and snow – everything except sand. With its 750W motor and fat tires, it has impressive power to handle all types of terrain as the company claims.

Though I didn’t ride in snow, the fat tires would likely perform well there too. The dual suspension is surprisingly soft and smooth, absorbing bumps from all terrain types while still being pretty comfortable. Initially, I was skeptical about the limited front-axle clearance but in practice, the front fork never touched the frame, even when making sharp, quick turns. The bike has an IPX4 water resistance rating and I can assure you it’s not afraid of water – I’ve ridden it in the rain multiple times and it still performs like new.

Where to Buy

The Jansno X50 electric bike retails for $899 at Geekbuying, $866 on Amazon.
