Do all electric mountain bikes come with full suspension?
Not all e-mountain bikes have full suspension. Some only have front suspension, known as hardtail mountain bikes. Hardtail bikes are great for easy to mid-level trails, but a dual-suspension e-bike is the one you need for ultimate comfort and control. Sprockets Cycles sell both full suspension and hardtail electric mountain bikes to match every biking goal.
Are e-MTBs heavier than traditional mountain bikes?
While the addition of the motor and battery does sometimes make electric bikes heavier than traditional bikes, modern advancements have made e-MTBs much lighter in recent years. Many electric mountain bikes now weigh between 16-23kg, which is comparable to a traditional mountain bike.
How fast can electric mountain bikes go?
The speed of an electric mountain bike is typically limited to 20-28 mph, depending on the model and local regulations. Some bikes may have a higher top speed, but riders should always check their local laws before operating them.
What is an Electric Mountain Bike?
An electric mountain bike (AKA e-mountain bike or e-MBT) is the same as a regular mountain bike but has a fitted electric motor.
The electric motor assists with pedalling, adding to your input for extra fun when cycling up mountain tracks. The best electric mountain bikes give you a significant boost in cycle power with added control, comfort and flexibility.
Because you expend less energy than with a regular mountain bike, you can go faster and further than before. This means you can experience a fluid and successful ride on any trail.
