  • Why consider an eBike

    An Electrically Assisted Bicycle, or eBike, is an effective and efficient way to simply have more fun when out riding. From getting you back into cycling, keeping up with friends and partners alike or perhaps riding the commute to work, eBike's can improved both mobility and fitness.

    As an eBike specialist, we sell brilliantly engineered bicycles from some of the world's leading brands, like Giant, Specialized, Cube and Trek, to name a few.

    The intended use of eBikes spans all age groups, all terrains and abilities. We have listed below some of the most popular reasons why eBikes are now extremely popular among men and women of all ages:

    Their intended uses now span across all age groups, all terrains and abilities. Below are some of the most popular reasons why eBikes have liberated more cyclists than any other type of bike:

    • Simply riding further (or faster if you want to!) when a busy lifestyle allows only limited time to ride;
    • The complete freedom eBikes grant you: thrown them in a camper van and use them as transport when you have found a special spot. No matter the terrain, you can take this in your stride knowing that you have the power to breeze through and make the most of your rides;
    • Helping couples, families and groups ride together, where perhaps a slower rider may otherwise struggle to maintain a certain speed, or distance, as others in the group;
    • Those tricky off-road climbs and technical challenges become conquerable in all weathers, where the added torque will amaze you with what both rider and bike can tackle;
    • Whether recovering from injuries, or building strength, eBike motors support you throughout your recovery;
    • Improving fitness and/or aiding weight-loss for those who would otherwise struggle with more impactful sports, such as running.

    Use our Demo fleets

    Come in store and take a test ride or two - take off into the future and you will see just why eBikes are the biggest growing sector in the cycling industry. We'll find the best eBike solution to re-ignite your desire and passion for riding. We are so confident in the eBikes we sale, we are 100% sure you'll fall in love with one.

  • What is so great about Ebikes

    Our whole range of eBikes can be personalised to suit the individual rider's requirements and the bike's intended use. We use our extensive expert knowledge to improve your eBike riding experience, we promise that you will not feel limited again.

    Adjust the level of Go Go Go...

    All of our eBikes have adjustable assistance, this means no matter what type of terrain you ride, your current fitness level, or the distance you are travelling, you can adjust the amount of power your eBike motor will provide whilst you ride. Ultimately you are in charge of your own journey. Range indicators on the bikes mean you should never run out of battery life half way home. We can even fine tune the diagnostics, on some select models, to alter the torque curve (that is power level to me and you) and therefore the riding characteristics - this further customises your eBike to suit your personal needs!

    Mountain bikers rejoice...

    Do not think you cannot enjoy the benefits of an eBike if mountain biking is your pleasure. With 120NM of torque between your legs can give you up to 500% extra assistance for 'them pesky hills'. Got a weekend booked in Wales but not looking forward to the climbs to the top of the mountain? No problem. Relish the climbs and live for the descents on a bike that handles exactly like a proper mountain bike should. If you want even more time out there taking advantage of trails, off roading and hill climbing, then we can fit larger batteries to take you from dawn to dusk.

    Touring cyclists arrive at the pub without breaking a sweat...

    Load your eBike with luggage for all eventualities and you are ready for a day exploring, safe in the knowledge that our eBikes have brilliant hydraulic brakes with stronger wheels and components. EBikes have extensive load carrying capabilities, so you can be ready for all weathers - ride, explore and most importantly enjoy!

    Commuters ride safer and become part of the traffic...

    Get to work fresh having kept up with traffic on a bike that's strong enough, despite the potholes! Many of our eBikes have the option of removing their batteries from the bike, so why not charge your eBike's Lithium Ion battery at work until full in just 3.5 hours.

    Couples can actually ride together...

    Most keen cyclists would love to ride with their significant other, so invest in an eBike for them and all of a sudden you can both average 15mph. No more pushing them up hills - making for more smiles and happier riding time together.

With up to 195 km of range (130 from the internal battery, 65 from our optional range extender), you'll be flattening mountains all day, not looking to plug-in.

    MISSION CONTROL

    Specialized Mission Control App sets Turbo apart. Smart Control lets you adjust motor support, while Tune allows you to adjust motor characteristics, like acceleration response and mode settings. Diagnosis provides you with an immediate overview of your motor & battery, while Ride can record your rides, analyze them, and automatically upload those to popular third-party platforms like STRAVA®.

    Giant SyncDrive, Powered by Yamaha

    All Giant and Liv E-Bikes are equipped with a SyncDrive motor. Exactly which type of motor depends on the bike. Giant's three different SyncDrive motor options are each specifically engineered and tuned to support specific riding styles whether that be daily commutes, recreational riding or high-performance road and off-road riding, you can be assured that the motor is providing optimal support for your E-Bike adventure.

    RideControl ONE

    Frequently Asked Questions
  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Who are eBikes for?

    Electric bikes are designed for almost every type of person and for many different purposes. There are so many models available with us, so let us help you figure out which would be most suitable given the type of riding you wish to do and where you're going to be riding your eBike most frequently.

    Are eBikes cheating?

    Absolutely Not! Sure, you might start picking up nicknames like 'Lance', but they don't know what E-bikes are capable of and after all knowledge is 'Power'. If having this much fun, on a cool new bike is cheating, then I will accept the criticism! Twice as far, twice as fast, twice as fun ... they will be the ones missing out.

    How fast can an eBike go?

    All electric bikes are restricted to 25kph (15.5mph). Above this the electric motor will cut out. However, the bike remains completely rideable above this speed.

    De-restriction is possible - but is allowed for private land use only - this then removes any limiters, meaning you can easily cruise at 25mph+.

    The top speed we have reached is an impressive 36mph - this was on a mountain eBike, which is seriously fast!

    Where can I take my new eBike?

    Simply put - everywhere you can a normal bike. The only restriction is you and your imagination.

    How much power are we talking?

    250watts of assistance from the biggest motor. This sees you flying literally everywhere. They can hold you at 120NM of torque too. That's enough for 15.5mph up a 25% gradient.

    How do the assistance levels work?

    You can usually choose how much help the motor provides, typically in three or four increments. Choosing your assist level helps control the bike's range, as mentioned above. It also gives you the choice of just how much effort you want to put in. If you're riding for exercise and want a little bit of help on the hills, use the minimum setting. Feeling extra tired? No problem - dial it up to maximum and blow serious roadies away on the hills

    More sophisticated eBikes also have a 'walk' mode that means you don't even need to push the bike along yourself, especially useful if you need to get it up a ramp or walk up a hill with a loaded bike.

    So, where's the catch?

    There really isn't one. You will have to plug it in when you get home to re-charge your battery. EBikes do weigh more than a standard bike but they require the same amount of maintenance as a "normal" bike.

    And those really are the only downsides (if you could even call them that!)

    But aren't E-bikes expensive to buy?

    Good e-Bikes are not cheap in terms of bicycles, but are seriously cheap as a form of transport and fun. You can pick up a very basic machine for £500 from some places, but these are not real eBikes. They will not give you the same reliability, joy or usability than one of our eBikes. We pride ourselves in stocking high-performance e-bikes, with light frames, high-capacity batteries and smart control electronics cost between £1,300 and £13,000. Our bikes are built to last, come with our guarantee and will not disappoint.

    It can actually save you money if you use it instead of a car:

    The average cost to run a car per year: £1,509.27

    The average cost to run an E-bike per year: £4.95

    This is based on the prices of tax, insurance, MOT, fuel and an average mileage of 3,300 miles - which is more than accomplishable on an eBike! This excludes maintenance, but a chain is a lot cheaper than a car service!

    We can also help you with finance arrangements, Cycle-Scheme (saving you up to 39%) and salary sacrifice. We also include free tune-ups for two years.
