Electric bikes have continued to rise in popularity over the last year – and of course like most other popular cycling products, there are some excellent deals to be had on a variety of bikes.
The beauty of electric bikes is that they allow those who may otherwise be put off cycling to be a part of the fun. Commutes that were once too long, or too sweat inducing, and hills that seemed insurmountable are suddenly achievable.
With growing popularity comes improved technology, and where once electric bikes were cumbersome and hard to store, they’re gradually becoming lighter, the power steadier and the batteries more reliable. They’re still not cheap, though.
To help you out with that last one, we’ve rounded up a collection of excellent deals from across the online retailers.
With each bike is a ‘Buy Now’ 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.
Ribble Endurance SLe electric bike from £2499
Ribble has been making a splash with its Endurance SLe model. It’s been adopted by former Tour de France yellow jersey wearer Sean Yates as his preferred ride. It’s also super-light for an e-bike at under 11kg and with its hidden battery, low profile controller and rear hub motor doesn’t look at all like a normal e-bike.
Kitted out with Shimano Tiagra, it starts at £2499, although as with all Ribble’s bikes, you can up the spec if you’re looking for something more flashy.
