Best Electric Bike for Range

Having a great range from your electric bike can be one of the most important factors to consider when choosing your new e-ride! Nobody wants to get caught out mid-journey with a flat battery wishing you had checked your charge before leaving.

One of the best ways to prevent this, would be to choose an e-bike with an impressive range so you can rely on your bike to keep up with you on a long journey. The great news is that with recent technological advances, e-bike batteries can certainly keep up with you as you can travel as far as 100 miles on a single charge.

Key Considerations

The size of battery on an electric bike is one of the most important aspects to look for when choosing a bike with great range. Your battery size will be defined in Volts (V) and amp hours (Ah). Keep these units in mind when searching and this will give you a great idea of which e-bike to go for. Also, each brand will suggest an expected range for each bike. You can find these on our product pages or ask a helpful member of staff.

An Important Note
The expected range advertised will not always be met as range is largely affected by various other riding conditions. These include terrain, rider weight, tyre pressure, headwind and more. All will affect the range of your battery and should be taken into account when setting off on your journey.
