The Classic MC vs. the Latest MC-Pro EBike: Which One Is Right for You?

Electric bikes, or EBikes, have revolutionized the way we commute and explore our cities. With various models available, it's essential to know the differences between them to make an informed decision. Today, we'll compare the classic MC and the latest MC-Pro EBike to help you find the perfect fit for your needs.




The MC and MC-Pro eBikes both boast impressive battery capacities. The MC features a 36V 21Ah (756Wh) battery, while the MC-Pro steps it up with a 48V 19.2Ah (921.6Wh) battery. Although the MC-Pro's battery is slightly larger, it's worth noting that the higher-voltage motor and fat tires of the MC-Pro consume more power than the MC. On flat road conditions, both models should be able to power a rider of around 60kg for 100 kilometers.



In the motor department, the MC sports a 36V 250W motor, while the MC-Pro comes with a 48V 250W motor. The 48V e-bike typically offers more power than the 36V counterpart. This higher voltage on the MC-Pro allows the motor to draw more power from the battery, resulting in increased torque and faster acceleration. While both e-bikes can reach the legal speed limit of 25km/hr on flat terrain, the MC-Pro excels on uphill rides, providing a more potent boost and faster travel. If you primarily travel on flat road conditions, the MC is a more economical option for you.



When it comes to braking systems, the MC features Mechanical Disc Brakes with 160mm Rotors, while the MC-Pro upgrades to Hydraulic Brakes with 160mm Rotors. Hydraulic brakes are known for their superior stopping power and responsiveness, making the MC-Pro an excellent choice for riders seeking enhanced safety and control. However, the mechanical brakes on the MC provides sufficient braking and is a good and more economical alternative option.



Both the MC and MC-Pro offer foldability, allowing for easy storage and transportation. The MC can be folded into a very compact size, making it suitable for commuting via MRT, bus, or fitting it in the trunk of your car. On the other hand, the MC-Pro's foldability is limited to the stem, making it less suitable for MRT transportation but still easily transportable on cars.


Running Distance:

When it comes to range, the MC offers an impressive running distance of 120 km, while the MC-Pro provides a still commendable 100 km. Both eBikes deliver sufficient mileage for daily commuting and leisurely rides around town.




The MC comes equipped with 14x1.95-inch tires, while the MC-Pro features larger 16x3-inch tires. The fat tires on the MC-Pro offer better stability and traction, making it a solid choice for riders seeking a more comfortable and confident riding experience. However, the fat tires result in more friction to the ebike and consumes more power to travel.


Rear Rack and Front Carrier Mounting Bracket:

The MC's rear rack is bolted onto the frame, while the MC-Pro has a welded rear rack. Additionally, the MC-Pro comes with a front carrier mounting bracket, allowing you to fit all Brompton front bags with ease. This added convenience makes the MC-Pro an excellent option for riders who frequently carry belongings during their rides.



In terms of cost, the MC is priced at $1299 with a 6-month warranty, while the MC-Pro comes in at $1699 with the same warranty coverage. Though the MC-Pro carries a higher price tag, its enhanced features and capabilities justify the investment for those seeking top-notch performance and convenience.


Both the Jimove MC and MC-Pro eBikes offer impressive features and performance. For those prioritizing value for money, the classic MC remains an excellent choice with its impressive running range, compact foldability, and reliable performance. On the other hand, the MC-Pro caters to riders seeking extra power, better brakes, and additional convenience features, making it a worthy investment for those willing to splurge.

No matter your choice, rest assured that Jimove eBikes have been in the market since 2019, with readily available spare parts and aftersales support, ensuring a reliable and enjoyable riding experience for years to come. Happy riding!
