Electric mountain bikes edging out traditional designs


Motorized units fitted with sports bottle holders, reflectors and other convenient add-ons are increasing.



  • Electric units: Makers are rolling out more electric mountain bikes fitted with 180 to 250W brushless motors and lithium batteries. Products are mostly designed for Germany, Italy, Belgium and the US.
  • Multiple speed options: Models typically have a front gear system with at least two speed options, while the rear mechanism offers six to nine choices. The maximum speed ranges from 20 to 40kph.
  • User convenience: More mountain bikes are incorporating sports bottle holders, bicycle bags, reflectors, front and rear lamps, and suspension systems. Some upscale designs come with a screen that displays speed, distance traveled, battery capacity and other information.
  • Aesthetics: Bright and soft colors are offered, with white, blue, green and red the popular options. Recent designs sport matte and gradient hues. For a more streamlined look, many makers are replacing square tubes with oval types.
  • Price forecast: Increases in quotes will not exceed 5 percent in the next six months as material and component costs remain relatively stable.
