Although they’re not as common as hybrid or electric mountain bikes, roadies have also been given the electric treatment. The main obstacle that bike makers have had to overcome is weight – no road cyclist wants loads of extra kg to carry up hills, even if they do have an extra boost in power.
And bike makers have also got to consider how aerodynamic the bike is, which is no easy feat when you’re adding motors and battery packs to a new design. However, the latest release of electric road bikes prove that it is possible. With aero designed motors and cleverly mounted battery packs they certainly show the innovation and technology that’s possible in this category. Check out our range of electric roadies to see for yourself.
