How to choose the right electric bike?
As biking in general becomes more and more popular in every corner of the country, the variety and quality of electric bikes expands at a seemingly exponential rate. That makes choosing the right one a challenging endeavor. From a hub motor versus mid-drive motor to electric mountain bike versus commuter versus road bike to fat tire versus regular mountain bike tire, we’re here to help you sort out the details.
What should I look for when buying an electric bike?
First things first: it’s important to decide where you’re most likely to ride your electric mountain bike. If you live in the city and want to primarily use it for running errands, commuting, or generally getting around town, a cargo-ready city bike option like the Sherpa Cargo E-Bike (with a built-in rear rack) or the totable Voyager E-Bike simplify getting from place to place.
On the other hand, if you like to get out and into the woods, an electric mountain bike like the Jeep E-Bike—with full suspension, hydraulic disc brakes, and 4.8” fat tires will take you far off the beaten path.
Can electric bikes be used on bike paths?
While it’s important to understand the class ratings of e-bikes and the nuances of local laws and regulations before you hit the trails, generally speaking almost all e-bikes are allowed on most bike paths. Here’s a quick breakdown of the classifications of e-bikes, but take a look at this QuietKat blog post for more detail.
Class 1: Pedal assist only, no throttle, max assisted speed is 20 mph.
Class 2: Max speed is 20 mph, but are throttle-assisted.
Class 3: Pedal assist only, no throttle, max assisted speed is 28 mph.
How fast does a 1000w electric bike go?
A 1000w electric bicycle generally has a range of up to 40 miles and high speeds up to 20 mph. Some 1000w e-bikes can reach speeds up to 28 mph, but access for these models is limited due to common legislation and regulations.
Can electric bikes go up hills?
Electric bikes are designed to go up hills with ease. Even fully loaded with fat tire electric bike accessories, QuietKat e-bikes are specially designed to conquer hills without skipping a beat—and be fun to ride all the while.
