e-Bikes Buying Guide
Electric bikes or e-bikes are bicycles powered by a long life battery that runs an electric motor. The motor acts to assist pedalling, making the act of riding simpler, easy and faster. You can control the amount of assistance the motor provides, which either increase or decrease the energy required by the battery or the rider.
e-bike technology can be found across many different styles of bikes, but generally the use cases can be separated in commuting and mountain biking. In either setting the general benefit is the same - use the electric motor to help you get further on your bike. For commuters this means longer distances that may have previously been unattainable can be achieved with no sweat (literally).
Some riders will even progressively reduce the amount of assistance they require as they become fitter over time, a great way to build up your fitness level. For mountain bikers, it means access to more of the fun downhill sections they you may not be able to access on your own. Faster, further, steeper terrain becomes accessible to riders of any fitness level. Imagine getting twice as many runs out of morning on the trails.
