Electric Mountain Bikes A Buyers Guide to E-MTB.

Electric Mountain Bikes Buying Guide

We think electric mountain bikes are the most fun you can have on a bike! The addition of a small motor and battery can revitalise even the trails you're sick to death of.

E-MTBs are available as hardtails (with front suspension only) or full suspension (front & rear).

Hardtails vs. Full Suspension


Hardtails are best suited to light trails. They can tackle bumpy ground with ease and are available with a range of front fork travel and wheel sizes. They tend to be a more affordable option. Some commuters also elect for a hardtail e-mountain bike, particularly if their journey to work includes some bridleway or muddy paths, and if they want to use their bike to explore the local woods and trails at the weekend.

Full Suspension

Full suspension electric MTBs offer more versatility and allow you to tackle even very rough and technical terrain with ease. Just as with regular mountain bikes, different frame geometries, fork travel and wheel sizes are available (including plus-size and fat wheels), to suit every kind of off-road riding. We reckon the addition of a motor to a full-sus mountain bike is just about the most exciting thing to happen to mountain biking and we'd love to show you just how much fun it can be!


What's so great about e-mountain bikes?

Picture your typical day - between work and home responsibilities, it can be hard to even squeeze in even an hour's ride, and accidentally taking two hours to complete the local trails definitely doesn't go down well! There is one, simple answer to get more riding into your busy life. POWER!

Every trail opens up in front of you with the additional assistance of an e-bike, so you can spend less time panting up the massive climb that sneaks its way into every trail and more time on the "fun" bits.

This power also has benefits if you happen to like a slice of cake and a beer mid, before, or after the ride. With the extra kick on flat-out sections and climbs, you'll keep up with your mates who prefer skimmed milk and half a cornflake for breakfast.

My mate says e-bikes are cheating

Sure, you might start picking up nicknames like Lance, but they just haven't seen the light yet. If having this much fun, in a wood, on a cool new toy is cheating, then we hold our hands up! As one of our regular riders on our e-bike night rides put it: let's be real, mountain bikes are just toys, and let's be honest, toys with batteries are always better!

Surely there are downsides?

Yep, there are. But in the grand scheme of your total ride, is it hard to remember to plug in and charge after you've washed your bike? No, not really

And that is really the only downside. Sure, the bike will be slightly heavy but when bombing descents, that extra weight can actually feel helpful, especially with dialled geometry. Maintenance is virtually the same as your current mountain bike, as e-Mountain Bikes feature the same components.

So, let's review:

  • More fun per second than you thought possible.
  • Cross Country Whippet climbing prowess, and you get to keep the cake.
  • Limited downsides - just remember to plug in.

The real question to be asking yourself is: why not?
