WHICH ELECTRIC BIKE IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
In the past 5 years, electric bikes as a means of transportation have taken off. The popularity of these electric rideables caught the attention of GOTRAX and we have been developing and perfecting our own electric bikes that thousands of riders currently enjoy. If you’re looking for your own electric bike, and you’re not sure what you need to look out for, we have detailed the most important components you need to consider.
Compact electric bikes are ultra commuter friendly, and are recommended for riders who are looking to ride shorter distances, sub 10 miles.
Cost Effective: The compact electric bikes from GOTRAX are among our most affordable. Riders looking to for an e-bike on a lower budget will love what we have to offer.
Impaired Mobility: The compact models are also great for riders with imparied mobility. The step through design makes these bikes easy to get in and out of.
Our compact models also feature cruise control, an easy to read digital display screen, pedal assist, hand throttle brakes, comfortable seats, and rear suspension.
Commuter-friendly electric bikes are our specialty. GOTRAX has created e-bike models for riders looking to travel short, moderate and long distances. There are a handful of features to consider when shopping for a commuter bike.
Commute Distance: How far you’re looking to ride will be one of the most important elements you need to consider. Our models can go anywhere from 15 to 50 miles per charge. If you plan to ride your e-bike for the entirety of your commute, you should look into our models that support long distances. Shorter commutes, or commutes that also include other forms of public transportation will do well with our e-bikes that manage well on shorter distances.
Battery Size: The size of the battery will correspond to greater travel distances. As mentioned, if you are planning to use your e-bike on longer commutes, consider a model with a larger battery capacity. 36 Volts is a great battery size that will support longer distances.
Tire Size: The tires of your electric bike can make or break your experience. The standard tire size for our models is 26”. Our tires are shock absorbent and wear resistant so that you can enjoy riding without issue. Taller riders will enjoy our 29” tires.
Commute-Specific Features: Every commuter is different, and that is why all of our models are different. We offer a range of features that are specific to what any commuter may need. These features include hand throttle brakes, pedal assist, high speed capacity, step through designs, fatigue and fracture resistant frames, digital display technology and headlights.
Off Road/Mountain Bikes
For our outdoor-loving, off road seeking riders, GOTRAX has developed electric bikes that are built to withstand your needs. When looking for an off road/mountain e-bike, we have some features you recommend you consider.
Top Speeds and Large Motors: Our off roading electric bikes offer uniquely fast speeds, reaching up to 20mph. Adventure seekers can enjoy that these models are built with motors upwards of 500 Watts, allowing these models to go fast and ride strong on whatever terrain you face.
Suspension: Suspension is everything when it comes to off roading. If you are considering taking your e-bike off of city streets, look into models with stronger suspension.
Fat Tires: Fat tire e-bikes are great for off-roading. The size of these tires allow for a stable ride on rocky roads and paths. Frames on these tires are a force to be reckoned with.
