At Westbrook Cycles, we stock and supply an excellent range of E-Road Bikes, also known as Electric Road Bikes. These bikes combine two really exciting elements, the efficiency of a road bike - with all of the power assist and fun of an electric bike.
All of these electric road bikes work on a pedal assist basis, which means that an electric motor is engaged as you pedal - adding power onto each of your pedal strokes. This means that the power delivery on a e-road bike is smooth and controlled - and the power assist stops when you stop pedalling. These road bikes will also have a power selector, allowing you to increase/decrease the amount of electric assistance you have.
One of the most common manufacturers of road bike electric motors is Bosch, and these motors when twinned with lithium ion batteries provide great levels of charge and power, allowing you to push the distances which you can cycle on an e-bike.
There are carbon and alloy electric road bikes available to purchase, from the likes of Bergamont, Cannondale, GT and Scott. The geometry of these bikes also varies, with electric road bikes covering a relaxed geometry, being sold alongside electric road bikes which have been designed for speed and pace.
You can view the complete range of electric road bikes above, and if you have any questions about the collection - please get in touch and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
