THE BEST E-BIKE: THE RICH BIT TOP012 350W ELECTRIC MOUNTAIN BICYCLE
This is one of the best e-bikes ever created. It is a pure masterpiece. It comes in four colors – yellow, blue, green and orange, as they all look amazing. It can take you everywhere you like. It is suitable for every condition – snow, rain, you can even ride it on the beach.
One very common problem is the weight of the electric bicycles. You can feel the weight when the gas is over and in order to continue riding, you need to use the pedals. This model is a bit heavier – around 57 pounds, even though it is made of aluminum frame. But after all, this is a heavy-duty machine that can be ridden everywhere, so let’s say that the weight is not a problem.
The motor is a 350 W one which is surprisingly powerful and it works on a sealed lithium battery pack that is removable.
With electric bicycles, you have the option of picking how and when to lean on the battery and motor. If you use the battery, you will be able to speed up to 21 miles per hour, as you get a max range of nearly 28miles. You can extend those values, if you give it a little assistance. Now, you can get a nice ride outside without being worried about sweat or tiredness.
The model is equipped with three modes – pedal power only, pedal assist and pure twist-throttle electric. It is all up to you to choose which one to try out.
To fully charge it, you might need to leave it for up to 4 hours.
The whole bicycle is made only from high quality materials. Definitely clever well-built model.
It is on the high price range, but it can be one of the best investments ever. Some people will say that it is better to buy a motorcycle for this price, but if you are a fan of bikes and you are willing to spend some money on quality model then go for it you won’t regret it.
The only disadvantage here is that the suspension is restricted to the front fork. But to be honest, the extra fat tires offset the harsh situation. You will get out of the bumps without serious complications.
- Definitely a masterpiece
- Can be ridden everywhere
- Made only from high quality components
- Heavy-duty machine
- Not a lightweight model
- The suspension on the front fork is limited
SECOND PLACE CHOICE: THE ADDMOTOR 500W ELECTRIC BIKE
This booster bicycle has that vintage, but also retro-future vibe in it. Add Motor’s design is something different, but in the good way. A lot of people might love the way that the frame is almost entirely filled with the main electric unit. The name says it all- the motor is made to be electric, and it is nothing like other models that look like their battery and motor were an afterthought.
The design is funky looking, as the manufacturer claims that it is all because of the “advanced biomechanics”.
The max speed of 25mph and a greater range up to 45 miles is achieved with the 500W motor. If you want to increase those values, just use the pedals.
In order to avoid a throttle, the model made according to the EU laws, as the funny thing here is that there is no other part in the vehicle that comply with EU regulations. There are many interesting facts about the effect of EU on motorized bicycle laws, so be sure to check that out as well.
This model does not come with fat tires like the previous bike, but it is way cheaper than it.
- Different design
- Max speed of 25mph and a greater range up to 45 miles
- Does not come with fat tires
- Made according to the EU regulations
THE BEST BUDGET OPTION: WATSEKA XP SPORT-ELECTRIC BICYCLE
This is a bicycle perfect for every enthusiast who wants to get their hands on electric vehicle, but does not have the money. This bike is a brushless 250W step-through one, that has a top speed of about 16mph. The frame is one size. Some of the features here are ignition keys, taillight, headlight, cargo rack and many more.
For this price range, we think that this model is perfect, as it has an adequate (16-18 mile) range. Definitely a great vehicle for its price.
- A lot of features
- One size fits all frame
THE WALLET DESTROYER’S CHOICE: THE PRODECOTECH REBEL X 9 V5
This is the final product that we will present today. It is another great model that will be perfect for everyone that is ready to spend a lot.
The design is eye- catching, as it has that military vibe in it. This is an electric bike that will save you from a lot of trouble when you are in a hurry.
The impressive hydraulic brakes are just a piece of the cake.
The 30-mile range and 20mph are a bit of disappointment, as out previous suggestion has better features, and it is on a way cheaper price.
The motor is 600W, and many people believe that the speed is limited electronically, as they hope that the power can be transferred into the right torque in order to climb hills.
Its internal cable porting used for the design of the vehicle is impressive. The tires are fat and the same as off-road ones, which will allow you to ride it everywhere.
One advantage is that you can recharge your phone, or mp3 with USB directly from the battery. There is no need to worry, as this won’t affect the mile range in any way.
- You can charge your device with USB cable
- Impressive design
- Perfect for every terrain
- Not impressive mile ranges and mph
