From riders looking to self-shuttle to the top of their favorite trails to a new mountain biker looking for a gentler introduction to off-road cycling, our electric mountain bike reviews are geared to help you choose the right eMTB for you.
Electric Mountain Bikes vary wildly in price, components and what they are actually capable of on dirt. This is a broad category of e-bikes with lots of options, spec levels and price points. Maybe even more so than other e-bike categories, know that an eMTB’s off-road capability is going to be directly tied to what components it has — particularly the brakes and suspension — in addition to the quality of the motor and battery. The bike’s range on a single battery charge is also going to be a very important factor. A motor and battery (even small ones) add quite a bit of weight to an eMTB’s frame — if you run out of “juice,” you’ve got to lug it home under your own power.
Those things said, today’s eMTB market is flush with bikes capable of tackling just about anything you want to do with them. A risk-taking enduro racer and wide-eyed beginner alike will have no shortage of frame, motor, battery, and component setup to choose from. Remember a good e-bike doesn’t necessarily mean an expensive one — it’s all about being smart in what you pick.
Sounds like a lot to consider? That’s where we come in. Below is the latest selection of electricbikereport.com’s in-depth reviews and first-looks at some of the newest and most sought after eMTBs on the market. We keep tabs on new bikes as they are released and spend hours testing eMTBs on our home trails in southwest Utah, all in an effort to help you find the best e-bike to suit your needs.
