Electric bikes in the Bike Point
If you have not noticed, the bike industry is under power. Connoisseurs, trekking cyclists, mountain bikers, family fathers with trailers, even endurists are traveling with electric motor. It’s also clear why you should give up the help of an engine if the range of e-bikes is so big as never before? And besides, the sport is not too short, the tours are only a lot longer.
The agony of choice?
There are several e-bike systems on the market. Most systems use a mid-engine that sits below the bottom bracket. Engine power, battery and capacity depend on the system and your driving style. The more different levels you have to choose from, the more accurately you can adapt the engine support to your driving style. TIP: Since 2018, Bosch has been the first manufacturer to offer automatic e-bike modes. The engine support automatically adapts to the driving style and you save power and battery.
