The invention of the Electric Mountain Bike has been one of the biggest developments, ever in the cycling and mountain biking industry. At Westbrook Cycles, we were one of the first retailers in the UK to fully embrace electric mountain bike technology, quickly realising that electric mountain bikes opened up mountain biking to a wide range of new people looking an exciting challenge and to get out in the great outdoors. These mountain bikes have proved incredibly popular with customers who are looking to get into mountain biking later in life, as well as customers who have had a previous injury, which has restricted them getting out on a mountain bike before. It’s not just new customers using these bikes either, we have seen a lot of existing customers adding these bikes to their collection - enjoying the performance that they bring.
Although some electric bikes have a throttle, which operates from the handlebars - most electric mountain bikers only draw on their power when the pedals are used. The electric motor allows the rider to breeze up steep hills with relative ease, which would have once been tackled with great difficulty.Electric Bikes are also suited to your chosen mountain biking activity, with hard tail electric bikes being available - as well as full suspension electric mountain bikes, so you can continue to ride your way.
We have sourced what is, in our opinion the most comprehensive selection of electric mountain bikes available online. Models within the range have been handpicked from brands include Cannondale, Giant & Scott - and all meet our minimum specifications. As with full suspension bikes, choosing a budget electric bike often represents poor value for money - with parts very quickly wearing out under the strain of the power, and the cheaper battery units providing less power, for less time - and needing to be replaced more often.
You can view the full range of electric mountain bikes here, and as always - if you have any questions at all about the collection, please do just get in touch and we will be more than happy to answer any questions that you may have.
