Weight 73 lbs (33 kg) 62 lbs (28 kg)

HovRanger's weight is heavier. It weighs over 73 lbs, which gives a better stability and balance. 

 

 

Disc brake is another characteristic that the two electric bikes share in common. But the Hovsco HovRanger weighs around 73 lbs (33 kg), while the Ride1Up's 700 weighs 62 pounds (28 kg). And HovRanger can support up to 450 lbs (204 kg) of weight while the latter is limited to loads below 275 lbs (125 kg). Both electric bikes are ideal for heavy-duty riding but expect the Hovsco HovRanger to be able to take a little more strain than the Ride1Up 700 XR.

All In All

 

HovRanger and Ride1Up 700XR are high performance commuter electric bikes. Additionally, Hovsco also owns its own factory, design, manufacture. Taking a deeper look into the specifications you can more easily spot the differences. When comparing the Hovsco HovRanger to the Ride1Up700 XR you’ll note that the Aventon Pace 500 is 4 pounds lighter and also has hydraulic disc brakes, front suspension fork. And they both are equipped with hydraulic disc brakes, the price is only $4 difference. Plus the HovRanger sports a larger motor and a battery which means a better bike maintenance and lifespan. 

Overall, the Hovsco brand offers better value if you want more torque and need a fast e-bike for your daily commute, and moreover, you can ride Hovsco utility e-bike to take on road trips and uneven terrain. While Ride1Up Bike is a more established brand, but its motor and battery capacity and its uploaded weight is less than Hovsco ebikes. I think you might have a better perspective on which ebike you should buy now under the same price and different bike configures.
