An electric mountain bike is a regular mountain bike equipped with an electric motor. Electric bikes, also known as e-bikes, range from bikes that have small motors that slightly assist the pedals, to more powerful ones, comparable to mopeds. Buying an electric mountain bike is an exceptional idea, since not only it will make your bike trips easier, it is also an eco-friendly solution because it runs solely on rechargeable batteries.
However, if you’re not a bike expert or not so much into bikes, you may find it hard to choose the mountain e-bike that will suit your needs.
