Stealth F-37 Electric Bike review: half downhill MTB. Half motocross machine. All fun

Designed and manufactured in the wilds of Oz, these mean looking trail monsters pinch styling elements (and components) from mountain bikes and motorcycles. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
The Stealth F-37, as tested here, is the latest 2022 model and packs a powerful 2,000W motor that sits in the rear wheel. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
It is operated by a twist throttle on the handlebar and proceedings are brought to an abrupt halt by whopping motocross hydraulic disc brakes. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
Throw in monster 180mm travel front forks and an equally enormous adjustable rear spring and you have a set-up that will happily tear up trails. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
Oh, did we also mention it can hit almost 40mph? Yeah, it’s rude. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
We will be the first to admit that the styling of the Stealth F-37, and all Stealth bikes for that matter, is an acquired taste. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
The batteries are stashed inside a riveted sheet metal box that’s bolted to the frame. It has the air of an aeroplane’s black box device. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
There is no denying the Stealth F-37 is huge amounts of fun to ride, but it’s also really expensive and the legalities of riding it could prove tricky.  (image credit: The Gear Loop)
