Electric bikes are nothing new. They’ve been around in various forms for quite some time now, but what we are seeing more of lately are e-bikes with a design-led focus. The best e-bikes on sale today combine aesthetics with performance, making them arguably the coolest way to get around at the moment.
Whether you’re in the market for a new bike or simply curious to see what all the fuss is about, these are the best e-bikes on sale today.
With its minimal, functional design and lightweight 250w electric motor, Lekker Bikes’ Amsterdam+ is a commuter bike with a difference. With just a single gear, you can choose the amount of help you get from the battery, or just peddle alone if you fancy putting the work in. An LED display up front allows you to choose easily the level of assistance required, while a full charging time of just 3.5 hours, you can be out and about every day with ease.
With a futuristic look befitting its innovative tech, the VanMoof S3 is one of the best e-bikes on sale today. Standard features include automatic electronic gear shifting, integrated anti-theft tech and a lights built into the frame. The bike’s forward-thinking theft defence system can remotely lock down the bike, making it impossible to ride and a nightmare for thieves, while the near-silent motor ensures you ride noise-free through the city.
As is the case with many new e-bikes, you can barely tell the Coboc Torino 527 has a motor at all. The electric motor is built directly into the frame, hidden from view, and offers 500w peak power with a charging time of only 2.5 hours. A range of 75km to 110km ensures you can easily fit in multiple rides per charge too, so whether you need a bike to commute on or a weekend runner, the Coboc Torino could be for you.
The Zooz Bikes Urban Ultralight is one of the more interesting e-bikes on sale today. With a peak power output of 1200w, it’s also one of the most powerful, but as with all e-bikes, it requires no licence, registration or insurance to go out on the road. Despite its strong steel frame and large battery, the BMX-style bike only weighs 47 lbs too, and with a top speed of 27mph, it’s easily one of the most exciting options on sale today.
