There were few details available when Jeep featured its upcoming ebike in a Groundhog Day-themed commercial for its Gladiator pickup during the Super Bowl TV broadcast early this month. But adventure ebike maker QuietKat, Jeep’s partner on the fat-tired electric, dropped some additional info this week.

The Jeep Edition ebike will ship as a Class 2 ebike (throttle assist up to 20 mph), but the throttle can also be easily removed to convert to Class 1 use (pedal assist up to 20 mph). It will be driven by a 750W Bafang M620 mid-drive motor putting out an impressive 160Nm of torque.

“Built on a 26 x 4.8-inch fat-tire platform, the Jeep Edition is designed for a wide variety of technical, off-road terrain including soft sand and snow, as well as hardpack trails and rocks,” QuietKat stated in a release.

The Jeep Edition will get 150 millimeters of front suspension travel via a dual-crown inverted fork, paired with 120 millimeters of rear travel delivered by QuietKat’s Fire-LiInk four-bar suspension design. Spec includes four-piston hydraulic disc brakes with 203-millimeter rotors and a wide-range 10-speed drivetrain.

The ebike is compatible with a wide range of QuietKat accessories including trailers, racks, and bags to haul camping gear, coolers, hunting and fishing gear, photo equipment, and more on backcountry adventures. Compatible fenders and lights will also be available.

The Jeep Edition will come in 17-inch (medium) and 19-inch (large) sizes, with low standover to fit a broad range of rider sizes. Pricing has not been set, but QuietKat said the Jeep Edition will be available for preorder starting March 1 at
