Generally speaking, e-mtbs are defined as traditional mountain bikes attached with a motor to operate smoother. However, a different story is being written by electric mountain bikes. These days, they are starting to rise into a category of their own. E-mtbs are outfitted with stronger frames, specific suspension and drivetrain—all of these making up an electric bike that’s ready to take on the hardest, most challenging paths.

With a plethora of electric mountain bikes available in the Australian market, choosing one can be quite tricky. In this article, we will show you the best electric mountain bikes in 2022.

 

What to Expect in Electric Mountain Bikes

Back in the day, there were “serious” cyclists who frowned upon the idea of using an electric mountain bike. Now, one can easily enjoy a peaceful Sunday climb without having to worry about snide remarks from those who pedal their traditional bikes. Fortunately, a large part of the mountain biking community has agreed that these powered mountain bikes indeed give a different, more thrilling experience than their analog siblings.  

As we have mentioned above, e-mountain bikes are fitted with powerful componentry that make them stand out among other electric bike types out there. They can make the most challenging situations for traditional mountain bikes feel like a breeze. Descending with the immediate need to climb up paths is an example, and an area where traditional bicycles usually struggle with.

E-mtb drivetrains were the last ones to be developed. However, just recently, the first bike-specific drivetrain was launched. Now, brands like Bosch and Shimano produce the world’s most powerful e-mtb drivetrains, within the legal road limits of course. The drive systems that these key industry players have developed are made specifically for trail use. E-mountain bikes are also equipped with different assist levels that help them dart up steep inclines with ease.

Additionally, e-mtb motors can reach a peak of 1000W. While this kind of wattage is not legal on Australian roads and paths, it is allowed for off-roading and on most biking trails. There are also e-mountain bikes that are powered by legally-accepted 250W motors that give a top speed of 25km/h. These kinds of e-mtbs are legal to ride on roads, and can easily take you where you need and want to be. Their fat tyres also allow for stable cruising across rocky terrains.  

The additional power provided by these components are responsible for a faster, safer, and more stable riding experience. On the other hand, the motors boost these e-mtbs for a smoother cruise up or down hills and hard trails.

There’s so much an electric mountain bike can offer, and these are just some of them. Just like other electric bike types, an e-mtb is tailored to fit the needs of its riders. E-MTBs are definitely great for the outdoors, trails, and steep climbs, but don’t leave them out when it comes on the streets either!
