The right electric bike can take the sweat out of riding and make cycling fun again – and we're here to help you choose the one for you.
Do you enjoy the freedom of cycling, but sometimes wish your panniers seemed lighter, the headwind less stiff, and the hills not quite so steep? Fancy arriving at your destination fresh and presentable rather than sweaty and rumpled? Then you’re already lusting after an e-bike.
For commuting, grocery-getting, or leisure riding, electric bikes deliver on the promise of carefree cycling that geography and fitness sometimes conspire to derail. Combining transport and exercise, a little electric assistance can keep the balance right, ensuring your new electric bike is an ever more viable alternative to public transport or hopping in the car.
Electric bikes are more expensive than traditional bikes, largely due to the cost of high capacity batteries. It pays to be careful though; we recommend always sticking to established bike builders that have quality controls in place. You might be able to find a super-cheap bike advertised online, but e-bikes are powerful machines and you don't want to be stuck with cheap components that might fail at high speeds.
