In recent years, this new mode of transport – electric mountain biking – has continued to gain fans. If it is so successful, it is because this new generation two-wheeler has no shortage of assets to appeal to cyclists. Let’s take stock of its advantages.
Yes, yes VTT electric is similar to the classic mountain bike that we all know, two elements are enough to decide between them: the battery and the motor.
The particularities of the electric mountain bike
The engine helps the cyclist in his efforts: it can also produce up to 90% of theenergyenergy required to move the bike forward. Concretely, when the assistance is engaged, you only accompany the movementmovement pedaling. On the other hand, this pedaling assistance is not constant in intensity: it is proportional to the effort you exert while pedaling.
The battery of a Electric mountain bike has variable autonomy depending on the models and manufacturers. It generally oscillates between 45 and 90 kilometers. In addition, certain factors such as the cyclist’s weight, pedaling force, ventventthe relief or even the inflation of the tires, can have an influence on the autonomy of the electric bike.
Electric mountain bike: what are its advantages?
The electric mountain bike has a certain number of characteristics that would make us want to give in. Here are the ones that most appeal to users:
- Increased performance physiquesphysiques : it allows you to easily cover longer routes, more quickly, without getting into the red when it comes to breathing. A ride that is a little more “sporty” in normal times immediately becomes much more pleasant and accessible with the electric version.
- Modification of usual routes: to avoid getting tired, you can get into the habit of regularly taking the same routes for your bike rides. Thanks to the electric mountain bike, mountainous paths with steep slopes can be climbed much more easily. In short, it allows you to reach geographical areas that were previously inaccessible to you with a classic mountain bike.
- Eliminate the differences in level in a group: with family, friends or as a couple, the electric mountain bike allows you to travel together without leaving the less sporty behind.
- Take care of your health: although the effort made with an electric mountain bike is less compared to a conventional bike, it nevertheless constitutes a physical activity in its own right. For example, the effort required by the electric version when pedaling is identical to that required when walking uphill. In particular, it helps relieve articulationsarticulations and strengthen the massemasse muscular.
Certainly more expensive to purchase than a traditional mountain bike, the electric model still has a bright future ahead of it. Although assistance allows you to push your physical limits, it is nevertheless recommended to use it sparingly, otherwise you risk depleting the battery and having to return home with a heavier bike than normal.
