Would you like to drive relaxed through the city and leave the tough traffic behind you? Do you want your e-bike to be your daily companion on all errands and visits ? Then you are well advised with a city e-bike. The city e-bike does not require any expensive equipment and does not have to withstand any extreme loads. It should simply get you from A to B – and with as little fuss as possible.
City e-bikes therefore rely less on high-end equipment in terms of speed, components and range, and much more on comfort and user -friendliness . Step-throughs in particular are very popular in this segment because you don’t have to twist yourself to get on the saddle. Fast getting on and off in the start and stop traffic of the cities is no problem.
Our city e-bike recommendations
City e-bikes have a huge price and quality range. Many discounters and hardware stores offer them with and without a motor. However, you should keep one thing in mind: a city e-bike is often exposed to wind and weather without any protection. If you have your bike outside the door day in and day out, it can quickly rust and weather. High-quality materials and qualitative workmanship should therefore not be neglected. We therefore always advise you to buy city e-bikes from specialist dealers. High-quality brands and tested technology are sold here. If you want to buy a city e-bike, you’re in luck. Because here you have by far the largest selection.
In addition to the technology, your personal taste also plays a major role in the purchase. If you can’t do anything with the color and design of the bike, a well-equipped bike won’t do you any good either. Don’t let yourself be guided by special brands either and instead take a closer look at the built-in components and the price-performance ratio. The guarantee and service should also play a bigger role when buying.
But not every cheap bike has to be of inferior quality. In the last few years in particular, we have repeatedly been surprised by competitive offers like G-Force T42 in the discount segment.
Is another e-bike also possible?
The city bike is comfortable but largely unspectacular. It is primarily practical. That means it should be durable and get you from A to B safely and comfortably. If this pragmatic solution is not enough for you, you may want to look around in related categories.
The urban e-bike is a bike for those whose city bikes should reflect a modern lifestyle. It is particularly suitable for short distances in the city, but is less geared towards comfort and more towards fast transport. Urban bikes are mostly light and minimalist in design , but rely on smartphone apps to control the motor and other technological gadgets.
On the other hand, if the city is too small for you and you need a more versatile e-bike, you should definitely look around for trekking e-bikes. Trekking e-bikes are the all-rounders among bicycles. You can drive to work with them as well as go on longer tours. They offer you many different equipment and configurations, with which you can still make good progress even in rough terrain.
