VELOWAVE GHOST 500 – Get Out and Explore

Velowave was one of the Ebike companies that seem to stand out from the rest, so I was excited to test out their latest mountain bike called the Ghost 500. Having a mountain bike gave me more options to take my drone out for testing in places I normally wouldn't go. For anyone looking at getting out and exploring, an e-bike really helps lower anxiety when it comes to hills and long distances.

What's going on guys Ultra nastassio Here with flightpath.com a little bit Different of a video because I do want To talk about one of the bikes that I've Been using I want to do a lot of my Drone videos when I wanted to test out a Lot of the following functions on a Drone it just wasn't enough to just do a Walking down the street or walking down The path or running I wanted to of Course get on a bike and make the Drone Actually do some work the velawave Actually reached out to me a little While back I've actually had this Mountain bike for a while now and I Didn't want to do like a weekend type of Testing on it I wanted to put it through A lot more than that and actually used The bike because for me e-bikes was one Of those things where I don't know Enough of them to really judge it and I Didn't want to have to just do some Basic testing uh you know and not use it Enough I wanted to see how well it does Over time because I think that's one of The biggest things how well do these Bikes hold up over time so for me it was More about how do I leverage this bike Using it for my drone videos but at the Same time I wanted a more utility bike I Used to have one that was more lifestyle But then I was only kind of limited to Taking it on the street I wanted Something like this where I'm able to

Now do some follow me function modes on My drones but then take it here take it Around uh some tracks some trails in the Mountains and I think that's what a lot Of people will be doing with their Drones probably taking out their bikes Into the trails a lot more than just Taking it out into the middle of the Road as far as type of bike this is a 500 watt this one's called the ghost 500 And they do have a few different bikes From Velo wave they also have the ones With the fat tire that has a higher Capacity I believe it's about seven Seven fifty watts and then they also Have the ones where it's stepped through So if you have height and you want to Worry about height this one actually is Geared for people around five six to six Two I am 510 so I am able to adjust this Seat right here one thing I couldn't do On my previous bike was take this Off-road because it did not have Suspension this one does have that front Suspension Fork so it makes of course Taking it off-road a lot easier now if You're not sure about e-bikes in general One of the things that really got me out Of the house and riding was the fact That it was an e-bike and it gives you That pedal assist now the great thing About the pedal assist in general is That if you're out there riding and you Come up on some hills that are a little

Bit more difficult all you have to do is Switch the settings here on the LED Screen bump it up so that that way the Pedal cysts and the motors will kick in A little bit harder to help you climb Those Hills and if you don't want to use The pedal assist and you just want to Use the Full Throttle you're able to do That as well right here on the left hand Side you can actually just hold that Throttle Down and the bike will continue Going right here on the rear of the bike We do have a seven speed rear drive Train from Shimano we also have rear and Front mechanical disc brakes now one of The things that Drew me to the velawave Release the ghost 500 is that it is one Of the lighter bikes out there from Their collection the previous e-bike That I had was almost 100 pounds this One actually comes in at 57 pounds Capable of carrying a load of about 280 Pounds now the battery that is stored Within the frame is a 48 volt 624 watt Hour battery that is lockable so if you Need to park this somewhere and just Know that the battery is locked right Here so you're not able to pull this out You just have to put in the key and then The battery is removable from the bottom As far as changing some of your settings Everything is here on this color LED Display and if you are wondering about This mount for my remote this is

Actually one of the older ones that's Meant for the rcn1 remote I just Gaff Taped the whole thing here so it does Work makes it easy for me to do some Follow me functions while I'm on the Bike and on the right hand side if you Did want to change your gear if you Wanted to go down or up all you do is Twist this portion right there this Actually will stay still and this turns This section right there for you to then Easily shift up or down depending on Your elevation now when it comes to the Tire we do have the Kenda Tire this one Here is a 27.5 inch by 2.35 inch like I Talked about if you wanted the ones with More of a flat tire they have it all the Way up to a four inch tire on some of The other models I'll make sure those Are also linked down below if you guys Want to check out some of the other ones That velawave does offer now when it Comes to speed and range of this Particular bike like I mentioned this is The ghost 500 that's where speed goes it Is rated to go anywhere between 20 to 25 Miles an hour hour of course if you're Going downhill just by momentum and Gravity you're going to be going faster Than that most likely but when it comes To speed rated for 20 to 25 miles an Hour and also as far as range goes also Rated between 25 to 40 miles now of Course that's an ideal flat surfaces if

You're going to be using this bike and Going on a lot of different terrain Going up elevation you're going to be Using up a lot more power so of course That range will decrease with that said Let's jump on the bike I'm gonna have The Drone follow me back down the trail On the side of this mountain right here And then I'll give you my final thoughts On this bike Foreign [Music] Might not be a big deal for a lot of People but I am not in shape so let's uh Let's crank this up I'm gonna go to a Highest gear here So I'm able to Pedal I'm in two Once I start feeling it I'll have to uh Going higher one and there you go let's Go cranked up to three Even four There it is So it is helping me a lot to get up this Hill right now Definitely not something that I'd be Able to do without that pedal assist at This moment all right just a little ride All the way around in the neighborhood Also up this little steep hill here I Just wanted to show you guys as far as How it is kind of changing some of your Settings while you're on your ride and That's the main reason why I wanted to Go with something like this a mountain

Bike just because it just gives you a Lot more options I'm able to ride it Around daily as pretty much a regular Bike but also if I want to go explore Having just the ability to switch it on And have that pedal assist to help you And just get to areas that you probably Wouldn't have gone otherwise now of Course biking great Fitness tool but I Think just having an e-bike in general Just makes you want to go out and see Different things explore different Places that you just wouldn't have done Or wouldn't want to do with a regular Bike now the ghost 500 velawave my Review on it is actually really really Positive the one thing I think of course I think this comes with a higher end Bike or mountain bike engine is that if You had rear shocks right now it only Has the front shocks as you can see Right here there are no rear shocks on The bike so of course staying within That budget uh definitely still capable Of doing what I need to do and that's Like I said get out there ride get some Fitness in there and explore different Places I haven't been as far as range Goes or like range anxiety I haven't had Any with the bike like I said it's rated For up to 45 miles but if you're staying On flat ground you'll get a lot more if You're using it for you know Hills and a Lot of you know heavy terrain where

You're going to be leveraging the Battery a lot more of course it'll be a Lot shorter but for the most part not a Problem all you have to do is plug it in Once you're done with the ride and then You're going to have a full charge and Finally when it comes to price right now I know it is a holiday season they have A Black Friday sale but if you are Seeing this afterwards I think velawave Is definitely one of the ones that are a Lot more affordable out there as far as E-bikes go the competition there's a ton Of bikes out there but like I said take A look at it while you're doing your Research see what they have to offer see What the other bikes are have to offer See if this thing matches up with them I Think the prices of their bikes are Pretty affordable and if you're guys Watching this before the Black Friday Deal ends they are having a big discount On their bikes Let's Get huge thanks to Velo wave this bike has been getting me Out and about and like I mentioned if You guys have watched all my previous Videos at least for the past few months All the ones that I'm doing with the Follow me functions on all the drones I've been using this bike right there as Always if you guys got some value from This video big like would be much Appreciated this is all justaccio with Flightpath.com I'll see you guys in the

Next video take care
