don't know anything about the brand. theoretically the power would be good, but notice that the run time is only slightly longer that an hour and a half. you might not normally night ride for much longer that that, but you need a longer life encase you have a mechanical (let's say maybe bending a rim) and you have to walk out of the woods.

Trails. They are flat though, but it is a blast anyway. You can get in around 20 miles if you want.

I'll be on a gold Nissan Armada with a crapload of MTB stickers on it... Luis may join me.. hoping for one lap at 10-12mph returning back to our cars before the mass start at 6pm.  Do you need directions?  Don't forget your lights for the 2nd lap.. won't hurt to put it on at the start in case we do'nt make it back by 6pm.
