What is an e-MTB?
An e-MTB (short for electric mountain bike) is a type of mountain bike that uses electric assist to get you to the top. These bikes can be either regular mountain bikes or e-MTB’s with a small motor that provides assistance up to 20 mph. The motor is typically integrated in the frame or seat tube and not the wheels. It may be the most significant upgrade you get from a regular bike. You might have also heard the term “e-bike” or “ebike” used to refer to these kinds of bikes. The motor on an e-MTB is not a regular bike’s powerful engine. It’s usually a very small, light and efficient e-bike motor that can provide up to 20 mph of assistance.
How to ride an e-MTB
One of the big differences between an e-MTB and a standard bike is the way the rider sits. With an e-MTB, the rider sits a little higher and has a more upright position. This position is called “e-bike” because it’s reminiscent of a bike but more like an e-rotor. The rider’s weight is also more evenly distributed across the bike and less on one leg. This position makes it much easier to pedal and gives the rider a more powerful workout.
The differences between a mountain bike and an e-MTB
The most significant difference between a mountain bike and an e-MTB is the power source. An e-MTB uses a small electric motor to provide assistance up to 20 mph, while a mountain bike uses a powerful engine. Another difference is the geometry of the bike. A mountain bike has a more aggressive geometry with larger tires and a lower handle-bar. This is designed to make it easier to climb hills and sprint downhill. An e-MTB on the other hand has a more classic, less strenuous geometry, with small, stiff tires and a much lower handle-bar. Another difference you’ll likely notice right away is that a mountain bike has much longer wheels, while an e-MTB wheels are smaller, less expensive and come supplied with special tyres.
The best e-mountain bike for %year% is a personal decision. Each e-MTB is unique and offers its own set of advantages and disadvantages.
