 Are you bored of your motor, tired of constant pedaling or searching to save the world by reducing your carbon footprint? Well, look no further! From sustainability to safety, there are many key factors to consider before purchasing your e-bike, here we have chosen key tips to keep in mind before you press the checkout button.

Electric Bikes made to suit you

First things first, to find the right bike for you, you must know what you are aiming to use it for. Whether you enjoy exploring the city or trekking the trails, buying a bike that is suitable for your lifestyle means that you will get the ultimate use out of your e-bike. Power-assisted riding means that you can reach the office without feeling tired and worn or tackle multiple hills whilst saving your energy, in turn helping you to ride for longer. Here at 50 Electric Bikes, we have a range of bikes designed to fit your personal needs and musts, discover our range of e-bikes to find your perfect match.

If you would like to try before you buy, we also offer a free test ride service where you can travel locally to conveniently try one of our e-bikes. This will allow you to check you are happy with the model before you purchase (also a great way to meet a new biking buddy!)

Electric Bikes Efficiency

We all want to do our bit to save the world, right? Purchasing an e-bike which is sustainable and efficient is a very cost-effective way to reduce your carbon footprint. Research has shown that electric bikes are 18 times more energy-efficient than an SUV/ 4×4, 13 times more energy-efficient than a saloon car, 6 times more energy-efficient than rail, and about the equal impact to the environment as a conventional bicycle.’ Going electric is a no-brainer!

Here at 50 Electric Bikes, our e-bikes are crafted to be not only lightweight and easy to ride but extremely efficient. The long-lasting battery is discreetly inserted into the bike making charging your e-bike a quick and simple process. The High-Density Lithium battery is expected to last for around 35-70 miles and will only take 3 hours to recharge, so you can get back on the road in no time. Riding a bike with a highly efficient battery will allow you to contribute to a greener planet whilst feeling free from the stress of constantly charging.

We are not the only ones who are all for going green, a new government scheme named ‘gear change’ could mean you could get a third-off your newest e-bike. Read our previous post for all there is to know on this incentive.

Comfort is key

When selecting the right e-bike for you, comfort is key. Having a comfy and cushioned saddle is a great starting point and is vital to prevent back/hip injuries and poor posture. As well as providing comfort, the right electric bike can protect you from injuries. With specialised shock absorption technology, our bikes provide a smooth ride to combat the uneven and rocky surfaces the UK has to offer. The shock absorption features help to protect your wrists whilst keeping your spine aligned in an upright riding position, helping your posture as you ride comfortably.

Riding an electric bike compared to a standard bike is also a great option for those with joint pains or muscular issues. An e-bike will aid you to reach your destination without the need to pedal continuously meaning you can enjoy the ride without the distraction of aches and pains. As we are moving out of lockdown keeping up your healthy lifestyle is very important, so investing in an e-bike that ticks all your boxes will aid you to stay fit and healthy both mentally and physically.

Now you know the key things to look out for when selecting your e-bike, you can shop with confidence. Happy e-cycling!
