The Complete Guide to 2021 E-Bikes by GOTRAX - GOTRAX

Maximizing Your Riding Experience One Electric Bike at a Time 

Among the ever-growing electric rideables industry is the electric bike, also known as the e-bike. The e-bike is a traditional bicycle built with untraditional features. These features include a motor and rechargeable battery, giving the rider the ability to ride farther and faster than ever before. 


During the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic, the world has seen a major shift in transportation and immense growth in micromobility, a term referring to the range of lightweight electric rideables used by individual riders as a means to get from one place to another. The growth in the electric rideables industry also shines a light on the multitude of reasons a person might want their very own electric scooter or bike, whether that be for fun or function.
