Electric Road Bike Reviews

This type of electric bike is optimized to be lightweight and efficient. It’s mainly used for sport riding over long distances on smooth paved surfaces. Narrow tires reduce friction and drag while an aggressive geometry positions the rider’s upper body down and forward, making them aerodynamic. Electric drive systems can add a lot of weight, so road ebikes tend to use cutting edge technology to shave off the pounds, and that can make them relatively expensive. They frequently utilize drop bars with three hand positions (hoods, flats, and drops) to allow riders to change arm and hand position, reducing fatigue over longer distances.
