What is the best E-MTB on the market? To answer this question, we compared the best-selling models. In these electric mountain bikes, we find more technological innovations than their predecessors, new motors, and sometimes batteries with greater range that will make riding seasons more exciting than ever. Let’s take a look at the best models and see which bikes fit the different needs of cyclists.
How do e-bikes work?
Electric bikes provide cyclists with useful natural pedal assist to reduce the force on the pedals. By law, these bikes have various manually selectable support levels and can reach speeds of up to 25 km/h. The 250-watt motor works with human power on an electric booster pedal and is powered by a lithium battery with capacities ranging from 250 Wh to 700 Wh, and can also run for hours in Eco mode (low-level assist). On downhill routes, e-bike choices inevitably lean toward e-mountain bikes, which can be significantly more efficient when pedaling becomes more tiring and the terrain is rougher. It is not enough to choose a quality city electric bike for around 1,000 euros. In order to safely overcome the toughest slopes on unpaved roads, you inevitably have to resort to electric mountain bikes (also known as E-MTBs).
In the city, the E-MTB isn’t as smooth as an electric city bike, but the firm tires and adequate suspension mean you won’t feel the bumps over cobblestones, trails, and urban obstacles. Not only is it possible to buy an electric mountain bike for less than a decisive 1,000 euros, but there are excellent products on the market that can be a great pleasure in urban traffic and off-road use. Below this price threshold, the focus is of course entirely on cost-effectiveness, without compromising overall technical reliability.
