The next time you're in traffic, standing in a packed train or riding a bike up a steep hill, ask yourself if there's a better way to get to work. The answer is yes. The answer is an electric bicycle.
E-bikes are just a small effort to keep the wheels running. E-bikes are the ideal exercise for a ride as you can drive without sweating. They are also generally faster and more comfortable than public transport, and in the long run they are also cheaper.
E-bikes are not just meant for commuting. Especially mountain bikers will enjoy the electrical assistance while climbing. Below are our best tips for work, hiking and touring. For more information on what to look for in an e-bike, see our expert guide.

Nothing is really perfect, but this top-of-the-range model is as close as it gets goes. The Shimano Steps engine is smooth (and increases power based on the effort and incline), the battery will take you 100km (and the display shows how much distance you can cover in each setting so you never get too short) There are even integrated lights that have been bizarrely omitted on many e-bikes. We really tried to find really really hard to find a mistake with this ride, and the only thing we can think of is that there is only one frame size. So, if you're taller than 185 cm, you might find it too compact
