Critical Electric Bicycle Considerations

There are a variety of electric bike models on the market, meaning there’s an e-bike out there for everyone. We advise considering the following features before purchasing an e-bike and taking it out on the road or offroad trails.


Quality of E-Bike Battery

An electronic bike is powered by a battery that you can easily charge at most power outlets.


It’s important to ensure your electronic bike model has a high-quality battery that won’t drain quickly. If using your electric bike for long commutes, consistently charge the battery so you don’t get stranded. When choosing your model, look at the battery’s range, as this will determine how long it can run before it needs a recharge. E-bikes come with three types of batteries:


  • Nickel-cadmium batteries: Very light and come with their issues, especially when it comes to memory.

  • Lead-based batteries: The most affordable option, but are very heavy.

  • Lithium batteries: Very consistent when providing power


Ensure the E-Bike has Gears

Some customers prioritize e-bikes that deliver top speed. E-bikes have a derailleur system that allows riders to switch their gears and take the strain off their legs. The gear system makes it easy to navigate urban areas and offers complete control over speed.

E-Bike Model

The functionality of your electric bike will depend on the model you purchase. Ensure you pick an electric bike that matches your needs and lifestyle. For example, if you prioritize comfort, you can look at models with comfortable seating and high handlebars, like a breach cruiser e-bike.


The E-Bike's Weight

Lastly, if you plan to use your bike in urban areas, consider buying a lighter model. City e-bikes or folding e-bikes are highly convenient for people living in small spaces or navigating through busy streets.
