WHAT ARE THE MOST EXCITING E-MTBS OF 2017? 10 E-MOUNTAINBIKES IN COMPARISON
E-mountain bikes are pushing the boundaries within the world of mountain biking right now, flaunting technology from top to toe. We’ve pooled the ten hottest new E-MTBs for 2017 and given them a thorough check for innovation and teething problems. So which bike has come up trumps and shimmies with clever details like the unstoppable iPhone, and which ones are likely to go up in flames like the Samsung Galaxy Note 7?
E-biking is in a state of flux. Not long ago, most people purely associated e-biking with pensioners on sit-up-and-beg bikes. But we’ve moved on a lot since then, and e-bikes are a growing presence across a far broader spectrum of society, making them a staple image in our urban spaces already. But E-MTBs still have an avant-garde side to them, and are arguably responsible for drastically altering the hows and whos of how many people partake in sport and leisure.
There’s a lot of momentum in the development of E-MTBs right now, and this group test is testament to that. These ten models share very little in common with their ancestors, which we initially tested here at E-MOUNTAINBIKE Magazine back in 2013. A lot has progressed over the last three years, and many brands are now earning more than 50% of their turnover with the sale of E-MTBs. So it is not surprising that many companies are expanding their development teams, recruiting new creative minds and innovative bike developers to meet the demand and service the future; these new bikes aren’t just proof of their development efforts, but of ambition.
