Top Trends

It seems like electric bikes have been around for a number of years without ever truly taking off outside of niche markets, but 2015 could be the year that changes. The entrance of major manufacturers into the market and changing attitudes toward the idea of electric assistance for cyclists means e-bikes may soon make some serious headway.

Certain demographics such as city commuters or those with physical conditions which reduce the strength in their legs are perfectly placed to benefit from an electric motor which helps them on their way.

Until now the wider cycling community has been fairly skeptical of the idea of letting a motor do the work, which many feel takes away the essence of cycling. However, technological advances and work from big-industry names have seen the tide begin to turn.

The search for alternative forms of transport pushed many Europeans into the arms of an e-bike, and North Americans could soon follow suit. Improving cycle infrastructure encouraged residents of certain urban areas to consider cycling and e-bikes allow them to cover greater distances with less effort.

As well as commuters, e-bikes are also entering the off-road market, allowing users to conquer the trails which were previously the preserve of fitness enthusiasts. If you’d like to start cycling without the strain, keep your eye out for e-bikes from major manufacturers such as Bosch Systems, Yamaha, Continental and Shimano, with further technological advances expected to enable better integration with other smart devices such as fitness trackers.
