What is an Electric Bike?
An electric bike is an ordinary bicycle with the addition of a battery and electric motor to help with propulsion. E-bikes are perfect for those who love the outdoor lifestyle but suffer with physical restrictions such as bad knees or arthritis. The PAS (Pedal Assist System) of an electric bike means you only need to apply a small amount of pressure to the pedals to get moving. The electric motor will step in and do the hard work for you!
What types of Electric Bike are there to choose from?
Electric bikes have come a long way since they were first developed. The frames are lighter, the styles are plentiful, and the batteries so discreet you’ll barely notice the difference until you start pedalling. Our range of E-bikes caters for all tastes, budgets, and abilities. From the Fenetic Stowaway road bike that folds neatly in half and can be taken anywhere, to the high-end aluminium framed Fenetic Sprint mountain bike that can tackle any terrain you throw at it. Arrange a test drive at our warehouse where we will help you choose the model that is perfect for you.
What do I need to consider when buying an Electric Bike?
The two main differences when choosing an electric bike are in how the electrical assistance is delivered. An electric bike with a PAS (Pedal Assist System) means you must apply pressure to the pedals to get moving. It’s just like using an ordinary bicycle, except the electric motor will do the hard work for you! Once you feel more confident, the PAS can be turn down to a lower level or off completely! Alternatively, some E-bikes feature a throttle on the handlebars and operate in a similar way to how a motorcycle or scooter works. Simply twist and go!
