Post-pandemic life looks a lot different than it did before. Staying indoors and the words “socially distanced” are now ubiquitous.
And according to trends, electric bikes are at the forefront of this new way of living.
This is especially true in urban environments where city planners are building for the ways of the future and commuters are looking for less crowded transit options.
Not to mention, electric bicycles offer an eco-friendly and efficient alternative to public transport, all without cyclists breaking a sweat.
Pedal Assist Makes the Journey Smoother and More Enjoyable
More Reasons for buying an e-bike
But better commuting is only one reason for buying an e-bike.
There is a rapidly growing interest in electric mountain bikes for off-roading adventures and high-powered bikes that promote fitness.
While all types of bikes — traditional road bikes, beach cruisers, folding bikes — are all having a moment in 2020, electric bikes are even more so thanks to pedal assist.
Once the rider starts pedaling, pedal-assist activates the bike motor, thus engaging the rider in exercise.
While this might sound counterintuitive, experts say that people who ride e-bikes get more exercise than traditional bikes because they ride for further distances.
Plus, you can raise your single-speed experience to the next level. RIDEL’S EKO model provides expert handling through a combination of manual pedaling and clean electric power.
For improved performance, the innovative design features a torque sensor which automatically and intuitively delivers the right amount of pedal-assistance, exactly when needed.
Pedal-assist can make the journey smoother and more enjoyable, and is the preferred choice for many riders.
Freedom in the Outdoors
For people who are used to commuting on public transportation or in the car, e-bikes are a whole new ballgame of freedom.
In most bike-friendly cities, e-bikes are one of the most fun and healthy ways to spend time outdoors.
Most first-time riders report a positive first experience when testing out an e-bike, all while getting their heart rate going.
Electric Mountain Biking for Offroad Adventures
Across various makes and models of e-bikes, electric motors can add power from 20mph to 38mph when pedaling.
Bikes with power motors like the TRIPSTER are ideal for any kind of rugged terrain, especially mountain biking.
This sporty bike is convenient to ride and take along in all kinds of outdoor adventures.
This fast-paced bike appeals to a broad consumer base of people who ride for a combination of pleasure, adventure and commuting.
Electric Bikes for All Skill Levels
Since the pandemic started, bike companies have noticed a significant shift in the demographic of e-bike consumers.
That’s because a new wave of people (both avid cyclists and new riders alike) are turning to e-bikes to replace indoor gyms for daily exercise.
One of the greatest draws is that essentially a rider of any skill level can learn to ride an electric bike.
After months of stagnation, stuck indoors due to quarantine, people are adapting all new lifestyles that encourage more outdoor recreation.
Bike riding in urban environments no longer belongs to enthusiasts only.
This is actually proven in the incredible spikes in electric bike sales compared between 2019 and 2020, and also compared to traditional bike sales in the same time periods.
