What are some of the different categories of electric bikes?
Looking for an electric bike can feel confusing, but it doesn't have to be! Once you know you want one, it's all about figuring out what kind suits you best. Let's break it down into simple categories:
#### 1. Commuter Electric Bikes
The Asphalt, and the Mesa 2.0, are great for long rides, like going on a road trip or exploring trails. They're designed to be versatile and can handle different types of terrain, like city streets or off-road paths.
#### 2. Cruiser Electric Bikes
Cruiser bikes like the Scoria and the Mesa series (multi-category) are all about comfort and taking it easy. They have a relaxed design and comfy seats, making them perfect for leisurely rides around town or along scenic routes.
#### 3. Fat Tire Electric Bikes
If you love adventure and want to ride on all kinds of terrain, fat tire bikes are for you. The Basalt, Mesa plus and Tor plus can handle sandy trails, muddy paths, rocky areas, and even snow. Plus, they're built tough for a smooth ride.
#### 4. Mountain Electric Bikes
Mountain bikes are made for off-road adventures, the Obsidian is a top-shelf option. They're sturdy, with good suspension, and can handle rough trails and steep hills like a champ.
#### 5. Folding Electric Bikes
These bikes are super handy if you have limited space or need to carry them around. They fold up and can fit in the trunk or rear space of your vehicle to save room and are great for city commuting or traveling.
So, think about what kind of riding you'll be doing most, and pick the bike that fits your needs best!
