Which electric bikes are best?
We have to mention that’ve also ran your classic pedal E-bikes and we can quickly say that we much prefer the Surron for so many reasons like comfort, speed and durability. The only advantage of of an E-bike (apart from the obvious weight) is that you have pedals incase you run out of battery.
The E-bikes are really difficult to get up steep tricky country because you still have to pedal. Meanwhile on the Surron you can just hit the gas.
The seat on an E-bike is insanely uncomfortable. Like man, my ass still hurts from a trip a week ago. At least with the Surron you can sit forward and rest the pack on the seat. And all of these comments included wearing a heavy backpack
As far as electric bikes go, the range of models being produced goes far and wide, but a bike capable of handling mountainous terrain in all weather conditions really has its own place on the market.
The Surron Light Bee is what you may have seen us using on our many hunting adventures. Its taken us up river beds, through rivers, forests and even to the tops on a couple of occasions. The team at Blacksheep trading have done an outstanding job at choosing and importing a bike versatile for all environments and suitable for a rider of any ability. Not to mention the various upgrades that Blacksheep offer to make your bike perfectly suited for what you do.
are electric bikes waterproof/durability
The only real areas to keep dry on these bikes is the top of the battery which sits just below your seat height. They sit in a fairly well protected area so to get them wet means it would have to be in the water for a while. Even then, simply powering down the bike, removing the battery and letting it dry out will have you back on 2 wheels in no time at all.
Aside from charging your battery, the only real maintenance youll ever have to do is; tyres, brake pads and chain. Nothing more than you’re mountain bike.
Blacksheep trading not only offer a 3 month free service after purchasing one of their Surrons, but the amount of customising available is honestly ridiculous. A stock bike can be upgraded to have a 250% power increase and a battery with up to 100kms range. The only off roading bike you will ever need. Mine has had a larger rear sprocket installed, slightly reducing my top speed but allowing for much torquier performance when it really matters.
