The Benefits of Using An Electric Bike

Why is the electric bike good?

It’s no news that technology is leading the way of the future, and that it has radically improved our lifestyles.

Whether through virtual connectivity or tech-enhanced transportation, new innovations are empowering people around the world with information and activity.

Innovations of the electric bike are no different, offering an efficient, green alternative to get from point A to point B. The question people are asking — is the hype around electric bikes really worth it?

The electric bike, also known as an e-bike or power bike, has gained notoriety for outdoor transit.

This is especially true as more urban dwellers seek out a socially distanced and eco-friendly commute.

Electric bikes use rechargeable batteries (similar to an electric car) that allows them to travel at speeds up to 45 km/hr.

This makes them a viable alternative to cars, as riders can virtually get where they’re going without worrying about traffic congestion.

Not to mention, e-bikes are more energy efficient than virtually any mode of transportation, except a traditional bike or walking.

Still curious about how an electric bike can benefit your life? Here’s some of the main features that make an e-bike great:

Pedal-Assist Biking For a Sweat-Free Commute

With an electric bike, you’ll still get the physical and health benefits of riding, just with far greater efficiency.

E-bikes offer assisted pedaling, which is a built-in operating mode that activates the motor by pedaling.

So rather than using a throttle to activate your motor, simply start pedaling to power up your motor.

To activate pedal assist, your bike will use one (or a combination of) two kinds of sensors: speed sensor or torque sensor.

The speed sensor detects forward-pedaling rotation to activate the motor while the torque sensor detects the force of pedaling to activate the motor.

You can gauge the power on your e-bike display.

Pedal-assisting is one of the main benefits of electric riding as it gives you pedalling a boost without having to work up a sweat.

Plus, riders of all ages and skill levels can easily climb hills, conquer inclines and navigate challenging or off-road terrain.

Breakthroughs in Lithium Ion (Li-ion) Technology


Li-ion batteries are a family of batteries that can be recharged hundreds of times, and are considerably more stable than other battery types.

They’re quickly becoming the power source of choice for consumer electronic devices as they are lightweight, with higher energy density and voltage capacity.

The same goes for their popularity for e-bikes today as these batteries maintain their battery life over time when properly cared for.

An Improved Way to Fitness

E-bikes have officially entered the performance site of cycling.

It’s actually been found that riding an e-bike is on par with regular bikes at improving fitness, as its outdoor exercise, good for mental and physical health and customizable to the rider’s exercise goals.

This factor is increasingly important in the wake of the global pandemic, as the future of gyms has been radically disrupted around the world. People are seeking all new ways to shake up our months-long sedentary lifestyles, and electric bikes offer the ideal solution.

3 reviews for ORA

  1. Noel Barrios

    Nice bike for the price – arrived fast (2 days) with easy assembly.  I’ve put 125 miles on the bike and typically ride about 15 miles on flat terrain at 20mph. I’ve taken it for a 30 mile ride without any problems. Charging the battery for 2.5 hours, the battery always still has power at the end of the ride. I’d recommend this product!

  2. Abraham_z

    Absolutely great bike. Get it now!

  1. John Vella

    The package arrived fast (2 days) and is a relatively easy assembly (comes with instructions). The bike is built with quality parts and is very fun to ride! As a mountain biker, I’ve taken it on some pretty steep and rugged terrain and was impressed at how smooth the ride was. I’ve taken up to 30-mile rides without worrying about the battery power. Overall, great product.

  1. Dan Delora

    So far great solid ride! It’s definitely tough and rugged for pretty much any type of terrain due to the thick tires and 750W engine. I use it to commute to work over a bridge that I can practically fly over.

  2. Alvaro D

    The bike is totally weatherproof – you can ride it in the rain, snow, etc. It definitely makes for a very fast ride that’s effortless if you don’t want to sweat on your commute or taking it over mountain terrain. The bike is on the heavier side mostly because you can carry up to 300 lb or ride with two people. I charge it once or twice a week without any trouble.

2 reviews for EKO

  1. Sam Ulmer

    I’m a longtime rider and wanted a little assist, and found it with the EKO. I wasn’t expecting much given the price point vs other e-bikes, but I have been pleasantly surprised — the bike has high-quality components, is very fast, reliable, fun, and safe. Also super lightweight. In general, I’d say this is a great bike for city riders who are looking for a reliable way to commute with some power.

  2. Jeremy Lynn

    I’ve been using this electric bike to commute for the past month. This bike is good for easy riding in cities – adjustable height for the seat/handlebars to ride in a comfortable position for a long period of time. It’s quite lightweight so can be picked up easily + good battery capacity. Highly recommend buying.

3 reviews for CRUZER

  1. Rody

    Cruzer is absolutely the perfect model for living in the city.
    I completely stopped relying on public transport since the purchase of my Cruzer bike.
    5 stars and a thumb up!

  2. Elena

    The bike arrived on time and the assembly was easy and straightforward. I live near to the beach and I couldn’t be happier with this purchase! This was my first time using a pedal-assist bike and I feel comfortable / in control riding up to 20mph. I’d recommend this bike for riders in urban settings/ bike paths as its good quality for the price.

  3. Robert

    I bought this bike for my girlfriend and she absolutely loves it. It’s a super smooth ride and still quite feminine while having all the power of an electric bike. It’s the perfect bike for riding around the neighborhood or to the store…it has a rack on the back to store a bag or backpack if you are riding for a short day trip. Assembly was easy with the instructions RIDEL provides with shipment. Thank you!
