ELECTRIC BIKES

WHAT IS AN ELECTRIC BIKE?

Electric bikes, also called e-bikes or electric assist bicycles, are human-powered bicycles with integrated electric motors to provide a cyclist with additional power and speed. E-bikes are also referred to as pedal-assist bicycles.

The latest generation of e-bikes feature lightweight, removable, rechargeable batteries, making them easy, practical, and fun to ride in a variety of settings. This style of bicycle is wildly popular in Europe and is one of the fastest growing segments of bicycles in the US because they make cycling more approachable and are really fun to ride.

WHO LOVES RIDING AN E-BIKE?

EVERYONE! Whether you want to get to your destination faster, arrive at work fresher, or ride longer, you can benefit from an electric bike. Learn more about just a few of the types of cyclists who enjoy riding an e-bike.

THE DAILY COMMUTER

You ride to work - day in and day out, rain or shine. You love the time that you spend on your bike, but you’d also love to arrive at work a little faster and a little less sweaty. You would like a little extra help carrying life’s necessities to and from work.

THE ENVIRONMENT LOVER

You would love to use your bike more and your car less for your daily tasks, but sometimes it just seems easier to jump in the car to go from errand to errand. If you could ride a little faster and haul a heavier load, you’d definitely prefer to go by bike.

THE RECREATIONAL CYCLIST

You enjoy being outdoors and spending quality time with your friends and family. You’d enjoy your rides even more with a little assistance on those bigger hills or when the wind kicks up. You’d hop on your bike a lot more if it was just a little easier.

THE MATURE RIDER

You love being active and exploring the outdoors, but you're not as young and fit as you used to be. You want the youthful joy of riding your bike but your body isn’t up for conquering tough hills anymore. You’re looking for something comfortable, dependable, and fun.
