The great thing about electric bikes, or e-bikes as they're commonly known, is that there's one for pretty much every type of cycling. A commute that was too sweaty to do in work clothes becomes a breeze; for new or returning riders – or even for cyclists who don't go as fast up hills as they used to but still want to keep up on the club run – they're ideal.

With the increase in their popularity also comes better technology, improved batteries, better integration of the motor and lower weight. Some e-bikes are barely distinguishable at a glance from their purely pedal-powered non-assisted counterparts.

The latest Cycle To Work scheme guidance has been modified so that you can choose an e-bike costing over £1,000, but it's fair to say they're still quite a bit more expensive than non-electric bikes – understandably.

So, we've searched the online retailers for the best deals – which you'll find below.

With each bike is a ‘ View deal ’ link. If you click on this then we may receive a small amount of money from the retailer when you purchase the item. This doesn’t affect the amount you pay.
