electric bike ebike

What is the best eBike for you? Whether you're heading off on far-away adventures or you want to take the stress out of the daily commute, there's an eBike for the job. 

Electric bike technology has come a long way. Lightweight, compact batteries can help you to go further than you imagined you ever could, making light work of hills without affecting handling.

We've picked our favourite e-bikes that we think will help you to enjoy the ride like never before.

The best electric mountain bike

Vitus E-Sommet 27 VRS Mountain Bike (2021) Midnight BlueVitus E-Sommet 27 VRS Mountain Bike (2021) Midnight Blue

This all-terrain enduro bike is not only fun to ride, but it's also more than capable of taking on the toughest of trails. The Rockshox ZEB fork gives you 170mm of travel and is complimented by Rockshox Super Deluxe Select R Suspension at the rear for an ultra-smooth ride.  

Going uphill will be a breeze thanks to the all-new Shimano EP8 motor unit with a neatly integrated battery. The geometry and suspension kinematics have had a total overhaul from the previous version so it feels even more planted and confidence-inspiring once you're on the downhill. 

DT Swiss H1900 wheels are teamed up with Maxxis Assegai and High Roller II tyres for optimum grip as you fly through the twists and turns of the trail.

Adventure-seekers can go further on this high-performance gravel e-bike. Equipped with a Fazua Evation electronic motor drive and a SRAM Apex1 11-Speed groupset, the Vitus e-Substance Carbon can take on the toughest terrain.

The carbon frame, based on the award-winning Vitus Substance, has the motor in a central position so the bike handles with all the assuredness of the best gravel adventure bikes. Fast-rolling Prime Kanza Tubeless Ready wheels kitted out in WTB tubeless tyres give you the perfect combination of speed and grip. 

Mudguard mounts, as well as mounts for a rear cargo rack, give you the flexibility to carry whatever you need in any conditions.

Enjoy even longer days in the saddle with the added backup of an electric motor, making even the hardest climbs that bit more manageable. 

The integrated electric drive system from Fazua is the lightest and most compact in the industry. It's seated in a mid-position on the lightweight carbon frame, meaning that this bike will feel as nimble and fun as the best road bikes. 

The Shimano 105 2 x 11-speed hydraulic disc groupset will help you to tackle tricky terrain with confidence and ease. The Emitter's fast-rolling Prime Baroudeur disc wheelset teamed up with Schwalbe One Performance tubeless tyres, set you up for a smooth and efficient ride.
