The Electric bikes market is booming, all thanks to the awareness brought about by environmentalists about making smarter transportation choices. The Covid era witnessed a massive spike in the demand for e-bikes and they became a staple for commuters avoiding public transport. Since electric bikes are a green, eco-friendly option, experts believe the market will stay on this course.

What Is An Electric Bike?

An electric bike is very much like a regular bike with the exception of an addition of an electric motor and a battery. Electric propulsion pushes the bike forward and provides pedal assist; some e-bikes also have a throttle upgrade that takes you charging at the on-road speed limit without ever pedalling. Although, please note that e-bikes with thumb throttles are illegal on public land under the current UK laws. 

E-bikes are not a new invention, they have been around for quite some time, though they were earlier considered cumbersome, impractical, and expensive machines with poor batteries. A lot has changed since then, the electric motorbike industry has come a long way and certainly, with improved metal. 

The advancements in cycling and battery technology have led to the production of next-generation e-bikes that are stylish, light-weight, and powerful. Not only are they champions of low carbon footprint, but are also very safe, convenient, and affordable. The best part? You don't need to be on top of your physical health to ride an electric bicycle, their superior pedal-assist technology, and puncture-resistant tyres ensure that you can reach further, faster. 

Owing to their small size and flexibility, these versatile, trendy modes of transport help you pass through heavy traffic congestions much more easily than you could with a car or on public transport. Additionally, even though they are electrically powered, e-bikes still provide all the benefits of pedalling on a traditional bike, the additional boost is just so you can keep going when you’re fatigued. 

E-bikes come in different shapes and sizes for all sorts of audiences, anything from small folding bikes to larger fat tyre electric bikes. You can check out the folding electric bikes section on our website that offers the convenience of folding the e-bike and taking it with you on buses/trains or storing it in small spaces. For differently-abled individuals and seniors, we have the step-through electric bike section that is designed for easy mounting and dismounting.

When choosing an electric bike for yourself, make sure you keep the user intent in mind. If you cycle long distances, perhaps the most important factor to consider would be the electric bike’s battery life and charging cycle. If you’re an adventurer and looking for a city tourer, check out Ampere electric cycles. 

If you plan on taking your e-bike uphill, pick a sturdy electric bike with wide tyres that won’t puncture easily. You can check out our electric mountain bike collection on our website for options.
