What are Electric Bikes?

So, what exactly are Electric Bikes – Electric Bikes are commonly referred to as E-Bikes and are very similar to most bikes in some respects but differ in one key way – they are fitted with electric motors that are used for momentum and provide users with the ability to travel a lot quicker and with minimal effort. A big USP for Electric Bikes is the uphill capability of the bikes – You can easily travel uphill with very little effort and can enjoy the whole cycling experience. E-Bikes come in a variety of different shapes and sizes and for a variety of different uses. There are E-Bikes that are aimed at those who enjoy mountain biking and also for those who will use their e-bike to go to and from shops and will need some form of cargo functionality on the bike itself. Something that is great about E-Bikes is that you can carry multiple batteries in a backpack so that you never run out of charge and with advancements in technology the recharging time has drastically increased allowing for less time waiting for charges and more time enjoying the bike itself!
