Electric Bikes Explained

If you are not familiar with the concept of electric bikes, here is some essential information about what they are, how they work and what makes them different. An electric bike (e-bike) is a regular bicycle with additional features. The e-bike has an electric motor in the form of a mid-drive motor, hub motor or belt drive that is connected to the rear wheel. It allows the rider to pedal normally or use the motor and battery drive system.

To use an electric bike, you must charge the battery, turn on the controller system and initiate the motor drive system. The motor drive system can be initiated by either twisting a throttle, pedaling the bike forward, or pulling the bike’s trigger.

There are three types of electric bikes: foldable electric bikes, electric city cruisers and electric mountain bikes.
Lightweight and Portable

Foldable Electric Bike

What is it

Small, lightweight bikes that are more portable and can be easily taken on public transportation like a bus or a train. These bikes offer the rider flexibility for change of transport or limited spaces. This bike is still environmentally friendly while providing the power of electric speed.
Safe and easy to operate, this type of e-bike is a favorite among conscious city commuters.

Who is it for

The portable nature of foldable bikes make these a great choice for users that move around a lot, switch transportation often (streets to cars, buses, trains, etc.) or simply like to store up their vehicle.

Just find the model that suits your lifestyle.
