Electric bike reviews

Cyclotricity Sahara

Good budget city bike with a decent range, not without its foibles though

First ride: Giant Road E+ 1

Interesting full-power road machine with good handling and range

Aerobike X-Ride

Decent, uncomplicated short-range city bike that's light and easy to ride

Gocycle G3

Beautiful lightweight design with decent performance, let down a bit by the controls

First ride: Moustache Samedi 27 Trail 9

Fantastic mid travel trail bike with great aesthetics and a planted ride

First ride: Momentum Electric VIT-S

Great motor, solid build with top-quality transmission. A lot of money for an urban bike though

Fantic Fat Sport Performance

Good quality fat bike with a smooth motor that's pretty versatile on and off road

Orbea Wild 20

Well-balanced trail hardtail with a good quality build

Giant Ease E+

Well-made city bike with an easy ride, but not the most powerful

Peugeot AE21

Unique design limits luggage options, and it's not great value

Momentum Electric Upstart

Good quality, lightweight city bike that's better on flatter terrain

First Ride: Pulse ZL-2

Well-built sub-£1,000 city bike with a smooth motor and decent spec

Thrilling ride, but not for the faint hearted and build niggles mark it down

Good quality, small format city bike with a good ride and useful luggage options

First ride: Juicy Bikes Roller

Good-looking city machine with a near-silent motor and sub-20kg weight

Volt Infinity STEPS

Good quality STEPS-equipped city bike with a full urban spec

Shimano STEPS E8000

High quality drive system that's up among the best for e-MTBs

Iceni cargo trike

Serious load lugger that's easy to pilot, but needs a better motor

SRAM EX1 groupset

Excellent shifting performance from SRAM's new e-MTB-specific groupset


Good performance from a sub-£1,000 city bike, with eager motor and decent range
