There are many different types of bikes to consider for your needs before you even throw into the equation whether to go electric.
Here we offer a little bit more info about electric hybrid bikes and how they shape up against conventional bikes to see if it is the right choice for you.
An electric hybrid bike is simply an electrified version of a normal hybrid bike. Not to be confused with how a hybrid car works, a hybrid e-bike doesn’t rely on two fuel methods (unless you count your peddle power as a type of fuel).
A traditional hybrid bike offers a midway solution between a full road bike and a mountain bike. They have flatter handlebars giving a more upright comfortable position (at the cost of a little speed). They also have slightly larger, fatter tires than a road bike adding to the comfort factor when going over rougher terrain too.
This makes hybrid bikes ideal for the more casual cyclist who cycles around town or city and might encounter different terrains.
Feel free to check out our selection of men's e-bikes and women's e-bikes too. While these bikes are all of course unisex, you may be better suited to a women's or a men's specific e-bike dependent on your size and build.
An electric hybrid bike offers the same solution as a traditional hybrid bike but with the added punch of an electric motor to help you reach faster speeds more quickly and better climb hills without breaking a sweat.
There are many electric hybrid bikes for sale and the ‘best’ is completely dependent on your budget and how you will use it.
We have a wide hybrid electric bike range in stock with plenty of options to choose from, however, the hybrid e bikes of 2021 we are most in love with include the: Cube Export Town Hybrid One 400 Electric Hybrid Bike and the Specialized Turbo Vado SL 4.0 Step Through Electric Hybrid Bike.
Although both are step through bikes they shouldn’t be dismissed as ‘ladies hybrid electric bikes’. The whole point of a hybrid bike is comfort and ease of use, and we ask you - what’s easier than stepping through onto your bike when you’re heading off to work in your skinny jeans?
