Difference in E-bikes 

Electric Road Bikes 

Electric road bikes have grown in popularity amongst cyclists who are part of clubs or groups as well as being popular with those who cycle to and from work.  And most importantly, those who simply enjoy the freedom of the road, wherever this may take them. 

Endurance bikes that are designed to sustain your speed, electric road bikes allow you to go further and faster. 

These bikes are ideal for the road, with their lightweight frames and smoother, more comfortable handling. 

Our pick of electric road bikes includes:

  • Cannondale Synapse Neo – With its smooth and silent power system, comfortable sportive position and massive range, the Synapse Neo brings new riding and endless possibilities.
  • Focus Paralane2  – This e-road bike combines lightweight design with motor assistance. Kicking in only when you need it, the extra 400 Watts of power helps flatten out those previously unconquerable hills.
  • Cube Agree Hybrid C:62 SL – redefining your expectations of an electric bike. The Cube Agree combines all that is great about the classic road bike, with all that is necessary from an e-bike. 

Electric Mountain Bikes 

Providing you with everything you love about mountain biking and then taking it one step further and providing you with even more. 

This is what an e-mountain bike can do. It will give you the capability to tackle those bigger mountainous hills with ease. 

With the ability to ride for longer, e-mountain bikes extend your time on the trails and allow more time flying down hills as ascent times halve.
