Electric Cruiser Bikes

Electric Cruiser bikes do not have any of the folding benefits the electric city bikes have but it is typically more comfortable to ride and more stylish. Electric Cruiser Bikes are great for beaches, neighborhoods and for people who just want to enjoy a nice comfortable ride. They provide a lot of comfort and style to go around, a lot of cushy touch points and relaxed riding position. A popular sector of electric cruiser bikes are step-thru electric cruisers. are now coming out with aof cruiser bikes with a step through feature.

Electric Mountain Bikes

Electric Mountain Bikes are built for trails and off-road performance, but they also do well on the streets as well. Electric Mountain Bikes are picking up in popularity for commuters and city riders for consumers who want a bike build to last.

Electric Mountain Bikes on the lower end of pricing make terrific commuter e-bikes. These bikes are usually hardtails and do not have rear suspension. They typically will have a front suspension fork, but their suspension is not meant for hardcore trail riding, but is good for medium trails and any road condition. 

If you want to jump your e-bike and do any serious mountain biking, youll be looking at a downhill electric mountain bike. These bikes are built to much higher standards and designed to survives brutal punishment of hardcore trails. Electric mountain bikes are certainly great for riding trails and heading off-road. But don’t count them out on the street either.

Electric mountain bikes on the lower end of the price range can make excellent commuter e-bikes. Such bikes are usually hardtails, meaning they lack rear suspension. Instead they often have just a front suspension fork. Their suspension might not be good enough for hardcore trail riding, but it is usually sufficient for hitting a few pot holes on the way to work.

Electric City Bikes

Electric City Bikes are originally for commuters and meant for people in cities with limited space. One of the most popular styles of electric bikes are the electric city bikes due to convenience and ease these bikes bring to lives. Electric city bikes are extremely popular for commuters and anyone who lives in populated cities where it is difficult and costly to get around in a vehicle. Electric Fat Tire City Bikes can be used for light trails as well due to the fat tires providing extra traction. This is a great way to save money on parking and car maintenance. Studies show it is significantly faster than taking a car. These electric city bikes come in a couple different sub-categories including step-thru bikes, fat tires city bikes and more. 

Electric Fat Tire Bikes

Electric Fat Tire Bikes are great for people who will be using their e-bike throughout the year. All of what we previously discussed has fat tire options, but we decided to break it into its own group due to the popularity. If you will be traveling in mud or snow this is a must. Electric Electric Fat Tire Bikes are much smoother and can even do off road trails due to the tires providing extra traction and dampen the bumpiness.

Electric Step-Thru Bikes

Step-Thru electric bikes provide an easier way and more comfortable option to get on and off your electric bike. Most step-thru electric bikes are designed "pedal-foward" which means the pedals are placed slightly in front of the seat allowing for a proper seating position. This means your feet can be flat on the ground while at a stand still. This creates the wheelbase to be slightly longer than traditional bikes, which actually makes it more comfortable. 

Due to step-thru electric bikes being so popular, you will actually find a wide variety of step-thru bikes. While choosing a step-thru, you want to consider which style electric bike you want. We offer Step-thu electric mountain bikes, cruiser bikes and city bikes. If you are not sure the differences between these bikes, I highly recommend you reading our Electric Bike Buying Guide. Here we will give you an in depth look at the advantages/disadvantages of the different styles of electric bikes. 

Electric step-thru bikes are also very common for seniors as they provide comfort and ease of use properties that other electric bikes do not offer. If you are looking for comfort and style, consider buying one of our electric step-thru bikes below.
