One of the most attractive features of an electric bike is their ability to make hills seem flat. Gone are the days of dismounting to push your bike up your local hill, now you can fly straight up with the assistance from your e-bike motor!
There are a few things to look out for when browsing electric bikes that will determine how easy they make uphill climbing. These include the torque produced from the motor, the cadence sensor and motor size to name a few. We are going to bust all of this jargon and bring to you the best electric bikes for cruising uphill.
Here's our top electric bikes for hills:

If you have ever wondered whether or not you can derestrict your electric bike to go faster than the usual 25km/h speed limit and use it off-road, oh boy you’re in for a treat! The ever so popular Stealth now comes in a new power boosted version allowing you to cruise at 50km/h given its 48V 1000W system.
The UK/EU regulations dictate that an e-bike must not exceed the rated power of 250W to be road-legal. This is not great news for the thrill-seekers, power-hungry among us who want to have the occasional fun off-road yet still be able to ride sensibly and legally on-road.
The purchase of the common high powered electric bike will come with its legal implications. On the other hand, the practicality of a road-legal e-bike means giving up the fun one could have off-road. So which do you choose?
CycloTricity had set out to resolve this dilemma and introduced the first electric bike range that combines both configurations! We have developed a unique system that allows the user to swap between two modes depending on whether you are on-road or off-road, allowing you to unlock the full power where it is safe and legal to do so.Buy Here
The Beast is a top seller for a reason; it offers power & distance with one of our most effective motors. With road-legal 250W to get there and 1,500W to unleash the off-road Beast within.
The “Beast” offers 1,500W of power and enormous torque to push you up that hill! Now that you are there, let’s make the ride down just as fun. Front and rear suspension keeps you planted to the trail, and its e-hydraulic brakes keep you on track.
Every detail of the "Beast" has been built for the trail. These electric mountain bikes feature the advanced frame and suspension technologies combined with a whopping 1500W motor, all at an incredible price!
For e-MTB, full suspension is a game-changer: it soaks up rugged terrain, so you can ride the pedal-assist system to its full potential. It rides like a mountain bike because it is one: it has the same frame and suspension tech that we've refined over and over, this has been a labour of love for Cyclotricity.
When you power down the assist, you have a fully capable trail bike that's ready to take on rugged terrain. Even when the trail gets rough, the wide 27.5+ tires deliver more confidence, traction, and stability.Buy Here
