What Are eBikes? Electric bikes, also called eBikes or electric assist bicycles are human-powered bicycles with integrated electric motors to provide a cyclist with additional power and speed.
The latest generation of electric bikes feature lightweight, removable, rechargeable batteries making them easy, practical and fun to use in a variety of settings. This style of bicycle is wildly popular in Europe and are one of the fastest growing segments of bicycles in the US because they make cycling more approachable and are really fun to ride.
Who Can Benefit from Riding an eBike? Everyone!
The Daily Commuter You ride to work, day in and day out. You love the time that you spend on your bike, but you’d 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 Recreational, Fun-Loving Cyclist You enjoy being outdoors and spending quality time with your friends and family. But, you’d enjoy your rides even more with a little assistance on those bigger hills or when the wind kicks up. You’d ride a lot more if it was just a little easier.
Environmentally-Conscious Cyclist You would love to use your bike more and your car less for your daily tasks, but sometimes it just seems easier to hop in the car rather than ride your bike from errand to errand. If you could ride a little faster and and haul groceries easier, you’d definitely prefer to go by bike.
Adult Cyclist 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 just isn’t up for conquering tough hills anymore. You’re looking for something comfortable, dependable and fun.
Physically-Limited Cyclist You long for the joy of cycling but struggle with a traditional bike's function and physical demands. You’re looking for a bike to exercise and explore the outdoors with, but know that a traditional bike doesn’t always work with your limitations or disability.
