Best Uppercut Punch Bag – Buyers Guide

Luckily, there aren’t to many things that you have to consider before choosing an uppercut punching bag. Taking the time to read my short guide though will help you to make a much better informed decision. Consequently it is far more likely that you will choose the right one for your needs and budget.

Type/Shape

Uppercut punch bags come in a variety of different shapes. They are all roughly the same size in height and width. The difference between them lies in their design/shape and the one you go for is mainly down to personal preference. When buying you will notice that the choices of shape available are with a wide top and narrow bottom, a wide top with a narrow middle and a wide bottom or a tear shape.

Size

This type of punching bag is quite a bit smaller than your average heavy punch bag. A typical uppercut bag will be around 3ft in height and have a diameter of roughly 45cm. If you have limited space then a wall mounted punch bag may be a better option.

Materials

There was a time when leather was the norm for all punch bags, however, synthetic materials that imitate leather are now widely used in many punch bags these days. The same can be said for uppercut punching bags, as most brands opt for a synthetic outer material with these as well. In terms of durability these synthetic materials are well made and are highly-durable making them perfect for punch bags of all-types.

Weight

The weight of any punch bag is very important whether its a free standing punch bag or plain normal heavy punch bag, the weight is a crucial purchasing consideration. Generally speaking the heavier the better. A good weight for an uppercut punching bag is anything above 20Kg.

Top 5 Uppercut Punch Bags

Now that you are prepared with all you need to know for choosing an uppercut bag its time to take a look at the top rated models. In my recommendations you will notice that the RDX brand feature quite a lot. To be honest, there isn’t a wide selection of brands to choose from when it comes to uppercut bags and this type of punch bag is littered with cheap models imported from china and branded with some vague boxing related name. The models featured in my reviews are from well established boxing brands that have a reputation for producing top quality boxing equipment.

RDX Boxing Uppercut Punch Bag

RDX have cornered the market for affordable high quality boxing training gear in the UK. This Manchester based brand has many bestsellers on Amazon and all with very good customer feedback. From boxing gloves and headgear to punch bags and more, they are one of the most popular brands around. The RDX Uppercut Punching Bag is prime example of what the brand stands for, affordability and quality.

First of all this is the heaviest bag available and it weighs in at 30 Kg. It is made from RDX maya hide leather which is well-known for its durability. The inner material is made up of a 2″ polyethylene foam jacket with shredded textile filling. The height is 3ft 4″ and the diameter is 45cm at its widest. It also features a tethered loop at the bottom to help minimise swing reduction.

In addition to the actual bag there is also a pair of RDX Gel Boxing Gloves and a swivel chain with every purchase, this what i mean about the affordability of RDX’s boxing equipment. The gloves are by no means the best, however, they provide more than enough protection and wrist support for working with the bag.

In my opinion this is the best buy for the majority of people. For a great price it offers a full set-up and with some good quality to it. Perfect for practicing angled hooks and uppercuts it comes recommended as the top choice.

RDX Heavy Boxing Uppercut Maize Body Punch Bag

Here we have another RDX maize/angle bag and to be honest, it is pretty much the same as my number one choice. The main difference lies in the shape, which as you can see is slightly wider at the bottom. Out of the two models this  is the most popular in terms of sales, however, they are identical in terms of materials. The question to ask yourself is which shape/design is for you.

To go over the main features in brief. the outer material is made of RDX maya hide leather and the inner of a 2″  polyethylene foam jacket with shredded textile filling. It weighs 30 Kg and is 3ft 4″ in height and 45cm at its widest. it comes with a heavy-duty zip closure for modification and maximum fill capacity. Another positive feature is that it is waterproof and therefore can be used outside.

Hand stitched and with double stitching for extra durability this is a quality punch bag and definitely worth taking a look at. It comes recommended as Amazon’s choice model has a five-star rating and excellent customer feedback. The only reason it didn’t come top in my recommendations is because personally, i prefer the wide top and narrow bottom angle bags.

Lonsdale Heavy Angle Boxing Punch Bag

Lonsdale are a brand that can be trusted to provide high quality boxing equipment. They have a good reputation for their punch bags and they rank highly in many punch bag reviews. The Lonsdale Angle Punch Bag is the most expensive in my top 5 list, however, with the extra cost comes better quality.

With dimensions of 3ft in height and a diameter of 42cm it falls within the standard size for this type of punching bag. The outer is made of PU and it has a soft foam filling with good shock dispersion qualities. It features 6 hanging straps which are double stitched for extra durability. With a weight of 28 Kg it is within the recommended range and suitable for all but the biggest of hitters.

If you don’t mind spending a little extra for a top quality uppercut bag then the Lonsdale Heavy Angle Punch Bag comes highly recommended. Lonsdale punch bags are built to last and this one will undoubtedly last for years before wear and tear start to show.

MAXX 4FT Uppercut Punchbag

Maxx are by no means a big boxing brand and a lot of their equipment is not up to standard needed for those who take boxing seriously. Now and again though, they do release a product that has a good degree of quality to it. The main emphasis with the MAXX brand is affordability as they tend to focus solely on budget boxing equipment.

The MAXX uppercut Punch Bag differs slightly as it is 4 ft in height, which is quite large for an uppercut training punch bag. Due to the extra height it can also be used to practice kicks making it ideal for MMA and Muay Thai enthusiasts.

It weighs in at 25 Kg which is a good weight and due to the easy function zipper the weight can be adjusted if needed.

The outer layer is made from Rexion which is a synthetic material that replicates many of the properties of leather.

To sum up this is a good entry model as it comes with a pair of gloves and a wall bracket with all fittings and fixtures. If you are looking for value for money then after the RDX options, this is the next best choice available.

RDX Heavy Boxing Uppercut Maize Punch Bag

This time we have another model from the RDX brand and its the RDX Heavy Boxing Uppercut/Maize Punch Bag. As with all RDX products it offers very good value for money with a good mix of affordability and quality. Consequently, like many of the punch bags in their range it comes with a pair of RDX Gel Boxing Gloves.

One of the best-selling points of this punch bag is its durability. It is handmade with a leather based outer material and double stitched throughout, ensuring it will stand the beating you no doubt intend to give it. The inner is a textile filling and has been improved recently for even better shock absorption.

In terms of size it is 52 cm in height and 38cm, which is quite small in comparison to other models in our reviews.   Like all RDX punch bags it comes with heavy gauge D-rings and a swivel chain for hanging.

Another very well-made punch bag and ideal for uppercut training. With excellent feedback from previous buyers it comes highly recommended for those with limited space.

Electric bikes also known as ebikes or power assisted bicycles have become increasingly popular in Singapore in recent years. Due to the ban that came in to effect last year on electric scooters using footpaths they have become even more popular and with good reason. Long gone are the times when electric bikes had only a short range and a battery life that wasn’t worth the huge investment that it used to cost to buy one.

There is no denying that they can be expensive to buy and the difference between brands and models can be costly, especially if you don’t know what to look for when buying. in this article we will be explaining everything you need to know for when choosing an electric bike as well as bringing you our top recommendations for what we think is the best electric bike in Singapore for 2020.

Electric Bike Comparison Table

 

Top 5 Best Electric Bicycles In Singapore

Drive 20 Electric Bike

 

Key Features

Range: 60 to 70 km

Max User Weight: 120 Kg

Charge Time: 4 to 5 hours

Max Speed: 25km/h

The Express Drive 20 Electric Bike comes recommended as our top choice for those looking for a top quality model with a good range and an affordable price. Powered by a 10A battery it is capable of travelling between 60 to 70km before it needs to be recharged. Charging takes approximately 5 hours and for ease of charging the battery is fully detachable.

With a 36V/250w brushless motor it is capable of reaching a top speed of 25km/h which is the maximum speed for an electric bicycle in Singapore. We really like the solid design and robustness of this bike which gives it a maximum user weight of 120Kg. This is a very good maximum user weight as most models tend to be no more than 100kg.

The overall weight is 19.5kg which just falls within the maximum weight allowed for it to be LTA approved. On the front you will find a light meaning you can use it during the night without having to worry that cars and motorbikes can’t see you.

In our opinion the Express Drive 20 offers really good value for money and has a good mix of quality and affordability. You would struggle to find a Ebike at a si ilar price with a range as good as this one has.

 

MiniMotors Venom 2 E-Bicycle

MiniMotors Venom 2 E-Bicycle

Key Features

Range: 60 km

Max User Weight: 120 Kg

Charge Time: 3 hours

Max Speed: 25 km/h

MiniMotors are one of the most popular electric bike brands on the market and the MiniMotors Venom 2 E-Bicycle is one of their best sellers. This compact electric bicycle costs less than $1000 and has everything you expect to get when buying a good quality Ebike.

First of all it comes with the preferable 36A battery and is capable of travelling up to 60km on a single charge. To recharge the battery from flat it only takes 3 hours, which is one of the quickest recharge times we have found out of all electric bicycles available. Another positive is that the battery slots in to the frame giving it great stability when riding.

In addition to having an overall compact design it is also foldable meaning it can easily fit in to the boot of a car and be taken with you wherever you go. The frame is made of aluminium making it lightweight at the same time as being very strong and durable.

It comes with both a powerful front light and a rear brake light. Most of you will agree that comfort is a necessity when riding a bike and the built-in suspension and thick padded seat are perfect for long journeys.

The motor is powerful and 4 levels of assistance are powerful enough for you to not have to exert too much energy when going uphill which is a big plus.

Meeting all the requirements to be LTA approved and with excellent specifications the MiniMotors Venum 2 is definitely worth considering.

MiniMotors Venom 2+ E-Bicycle

Venom 2+ ebike - Minimotors | Samsung 35E Lithium Battery |

Key Features

Range: 75 km

Max User Weight: 100 Kg

Charge Time: 5 hours

Max Speed: 25 km/h

Another Ebike by Minimotors and this time its the Venom 2+ which is the upgraded version of the very popular Venom 2. No doubt you are wondering what is different about the Venom 2+ when compared to the Venom 2 and the most notable difference is the extended range. With a maximum range of 75km you get an extra 15km with this model making it one of the best Ebikes when it comes to distance travelled on a single charge.

To charge the battery from flat to full takes up to 5 hours which is slightly longer than with the Venom 2 but this is to be expected considering the extra distance you can travel. The only other noticeable difference is the addition af a seat with suspension for a more comfortable ride.

Like all the electric bikes in our top list it has a maximum speed of 25km/h which is the limit for it to meet LTA requirements.

Key Features

Range: 60 km

Max User Weight: 120 Kg

Charge Time: 5 hours

Max Speed: 25 km/h

The Smart1S 20 Foldable Electric Bike is the most expensive model to make it on to our top 5 list and with good reason. It features top quality parts throughout from brands like Kendra, Shimano and Tektro and has an ultra modern sleek design. Made in Italy it is very popular in Europe.

Weighing only 17.9Kg it is well within the range required to meet LTA approval and is one of the lightest Ebikes on the market. The shifter it comes with is the Shimano Altus SL-M310 Rapid Fire Plus and with 7 Speeds you can’t really ask for much more.

What we like about it the most is the fact that both the battery and motor are concealed meaning you wouldn’t even be able to tell it was an Ebike unless you was up close.

It comes with a bright lit display that shows if the light is on, your speed, how much battery is left and the distance you have travelled.

It features a high quality Tektro disc brake at the front and a Tektro V brake at the back.

With a 60km range and a four to five hour charging time as well as a top speed of 25km/h the Smart 1S comes highly recommended. It also comes with a free helmet and this isn’t just a cheap helmet of average quality but a top of the range one made to the highest safety standards.

Mobot Dynamic MINI 16 Electric Bicycle

Dynamic Mini EN15194 Certified LTA Orange Seal Approved Ebike ...

Key Features

Range: 50 km

Max User Weight: 125 Kg

Charge Time: 5 hours

Max Speed: 25 km/h

The Mobot Dynamic MINI is the most compact electric bike we could find and when folded up it hardly takes up any space. Due to the compact foldable design you can easily fit two of them in the boot of an average sized car. It is also within the permitted dimensions for it to be allowed to be taken on the bus.

Designed and built in France it is another very popular choice in Europe and you can find them being used by food delivery drivers in many countries. It is very robust and the solid design gives it a maximum user weight of 125kg. Another positive is the light weight of only 17.5kg making it one of the lightest ebikes available.

Powered with an 8Ah battery it has a maximum range of 50km. There is also the option to buy an extra battery if you would like to increase the range as it is removable.

With every purchase of the Mobot Dynamic MINI you get free LTA registration and a number plate.

Electric Bicycle Buying Guide

Before buying an electric bicycle there are a few things to be aware of before you choose a certain model. In this short buying guide we will briefly explain what it is you should be looking for when buying an Ebike.

Range

One of the most important things to be aware of is how far can you travel on a single charge with the bike you are thinking of buying. Typically speaking most models can travel a distance of roughly between 50 to 60 km before they need to be recharged. However, there are a few models available that have a longer range than the average amount and these tend to cost slightly more. One model with a very good range that doesn’t cost too much is the Venom 2+ this can travel 75km on one charge of the battery. In addition the battery is removable meaning you can always buy a spare and travel even further.

Battery

Ebikes come with either one of two types of battery these are 24V or 26V. The 26V battery is better than the 24V as it can hold more potential energy meaning you can travel further. Always check the battery before you make a final purchase as you will more than likely regret making this mistake if you don’t.

Max User Weight

This is a good indicator of how well built an electric bicycle actually is. When buying you will find that most models maximum user weight is somewhere between 100kg and 125kg.
