An electric mountain bike or eMtb for short can be an easy way to tackle any terrain you wish. Whether you’re looking to increase your fitness or complete multiple mountain biking trails in one day, it’s the ideal bike to give you that extra boost.
There are different types of electric mountain bikes out there, some of which include:
– Dual Suspension
– Fixed Gear
– Single Speed
If you want something that suits your needs, look into an electric hybrid mountain bike. These bikes offer both fixed gear and single speed options, meaning you can choose how fast you ride depending on what type of trail you’re riding. Some even come with suspension, giving you the option to go off road.

What to expect from an electric mountain bike
Electric mountain bikes are changing what’s possible in off-road racing. They offer riders the chance to conquer some of the world’s most challenging terrain without breaking into a sweat. But there’s no denying that they come with a few drawbacks.
The biggest problem with eMTBs is weight. While they’re lighter than traditional mountain bikes, they still weigh around 60kg – making it hard work to carry them over long distances. And while you don’t need to worry about charging batteries, you do need to make sure you pack enough energy drinks to keep yourself fuelled during longer rides.
But despite those minor inconveniences, electric mountain bikes are set to become increasingly popular. In fact, they’re already taking over the market. A recent report found that sales of eMTBs increased by 150% in 2018 alone. So how much do you need to spend to buy one? Well, it depends on what you want to use it for. If you just fancy exploring the great outdoors, an entry level model could be all you need. However, if you plan to compete in races, you’ll probably want something more serious.

All purpose electric mountain bikes
Electric mountain bikes are becoming increasingly popular among commuters and riders who want to enjoy the great outdoors without breaking a sweat. They offer the same performance as traditional mountain bikes, while adding some unique features like power assist, regenerative braking, and motorized steering. These bikes are perfect for commuting, riding around town, or even exploring the trails.
Off road e-MTBs
Eskute off-road electric mountain bike range now includes three models. The original Eskute, launched in 2017, has been joined by the 2018 model Eskute and the 2019 model Eskute. All three feature full suspension, 27.5in wheels, powerful motors, and a battery pack that allows riders to travel up to 60 miles on one charge.
The Eskute uses a Bosch Performance Line motor rated at 250w peak power and 750 Nm torque. This gives it a maximum speed of 70mph and a range of up to 30 miles. There is no throttle assist, so riders must pedal hard to achieve high speeds. The battery takes just over four hours to fully charge via USB port.
The Eskute features a Bosch Performance Line Plus motor rated at 300W peak power and 1000Nm torque. This gives the bike a maximum speed of 80mph and a range of 40 miles. Again there is no throttle assist, meaning riders must put in effort to reach those speeds. The battery takes about 2½ hours to fully charge via usb port.
Finally, the Eskute Evo XRS features a Bosch Performance Speedline Plus motor rated at 350W peak power and 1200Nm torque. This makes the bike capable of reaching a top speed of 90mph. A full charge of the battery gives the rider a range of 50 miles.
