We’ve compiled the top 5 reasons why people choose to ride electric bikes.
1. Say hello to an eco-friendly car alternative.
Electric bikes are a great way to reduce your carbon footprint. A 2020 study done by Portland State University found that substituting a car ride with an eBike ride can decrease carbon dioxide emissions from passenger transportation by 12%. Replace a few car trips per week, or replace your car altogether, with an ebike to save money on gas and feel good about doing it. There’s a reason why electric bikes are the fastest growing electric vehicle segment today.
2. Keep up with everyone around you.
If you’re finding it difficult to keep up with your riding partners, an ebike is a great way to make up the difference in ability. Or maybe you just want to be the fastest one out on the bike trail. Whatever your ability is, we guarantee an ebike will allow you to go faster and go further.
3. No more sweltering rides to work.
A study at the University of Tennessee found that ebikers use 24% less energy than non-electric bikers and 64% less than walkers. That means no more feeling like you need to shower at the end of your commute!
4. Carry more cargo.
With the assistance of a motor, you’ll be able to carry more cargo with less effort – you can even carry passengers with some models. Haul your groceries, kids, backpack, or whatever you can strap to your ebike.
5. They’re more fun to ride!
Riding an ebike is simply more fun than riding a non-electric bike. You can take off faster, zip up hills easier, and explore more trails with an ebike. Whether you’re a seasoned road biker, casual weekend rider, or anywhere in between, we promise that once you try an ebike, you won’t want to get off.
