Sometimes customer buy an ebike because of its beautiful colors, so more color options will definitely accommodate rider's different color preferences!

Weight 73lbs 68lbs The weight of an ebike is an important factor to consider. 
Carry Capacity 400lbs (incl. rider) 300lbs HovRanger Step-Through has a much more weight for total payload capacity, and riders can pack their bags without thinking about weight much.
Integrated Battery Yes Yes Both bikes integrate the battery into the frame in a stylishly sleek way. 
Tires 

27.5 x 2.35” Fat Tire

27.5 x 2.4” Fat Tire

The tires on the HovRanger Step-Through are 2.35 inches narrow while the KBO Breeze ST are 2.4 inches.  An advantage to a slightly more narrow tire is improved efficiency but an advantage to a wider tire is greater balance and improved ability to get through sandy or looser soil conditions.

 

It is through the analytical, physical lens where you can really see how these ebikes are set apart from each other. The level of attention to detail which has gone into both products is impressive, however the HovRanger Step-Through still has the upper-hand with all the little things adding up to make an ebike that has been thought though extensively, meaning that it’s just that much better to ride and, if we do say so ourselves, that much better to look at!

 

ALL IN ALL 

 

Finally, we hope this e-bike comparison helped you decide among the best e-bike brands. In many categories, the HovRanger Step-Through Cruiser Ebike surpasses the KBO Breeze Step-Through as shown by the data and specifications. Even though the KBO Breeze Step-Through is lighter and the battery is a little larger, the HovRanger Step-Through Cruiser Ebike places first in categories like battery power, range, warranty length, and payload capacity. Keep this comparison in mind the next time you are in the market for a new electric bike and choose the one that is most suitable for you.
