If you are looking to buy a new electric bike in this day and age, the number of choices can be overwhelming. There are far more companies selling electric bikes today than there were ten years ago, and it can be hard to know where to start when looking for a good model.
So to simplify things for you we compiled this list of the top 8 women’s electric bikes, as well as a detailed buyer’s guide to help you decide what features you should consider for your own specific needs.
Best Women’s Electric Bikes
1) Sixthreezero Around the Block Women’s Cruiser Bike
First up is the Sixthreezero Around the Block Women’s Cruiser electric bike. This is quite a comfortable bike, the frame absorbs the bumps and vibrations, and the handlebars keep the strain off your back and shoulders. It is particularly great for short to medium distances. The seat and the handlebar grips also make the bike remarkably comfortable.
With 21 gears, you can easily take the bike up hills without using the battery. The gear shift is smooth, and the front and back brakes work properly. The high-quality wheels contribute to how comfortable the bike is. While the battery is reasonably powerful (18 to 40 miles at 14 miles per hour), you can do better if you are looking for a bike with a lot of battery range. Some assembly is required, but the bike comes with the necessary tools, and the process is straightforward. The bike comes with a kickstand, so you will not have to order that separately.
2) I·PAS Fat Tire Folding Electric Bike
One of the best things about the I·PAS is its intelligent power saving system. The smart power-saving system allows the bike to use less energy when less energy is needed, which keeps the battery going much longer. The bike is very high tech in general, with lots of advanced features including a foldable frame.
Until the battery is quite low, the motor generates a lot of power. With some bikes, the motor will weaken when the battery still has more than a little power left. This is not the case here. The motor will continue to run at full strength until the battery is truly running out of power.
The motor and the battery on this bike are impressive. The bike can go up to 28 miles per hour. Because of the power saving system, the bike has a range of 60 or 80 miles. This high tech bike also offers an LCD screen with information about speed, battery life, and power efficiency. The bike’s fat tires also make it safer than other women’s e-bikes.
3) NAKTO Women Cargo-Electric Bicycle
The NAKTO has excellent shock absorbers, which make the ride comfortable. The adjustable seat is another great feature for taller or shorter riders. While the bike’s range is reasonably good (25 to 40 miles), you can do better range wise. While some assembly is required, the bike is almost complete before it is shipped to you.
Despite the basket being made of plastic and not metal, the basket is durable. The bike is durable in general, even though it is affordable. The motor is strong enough to get you up hills that other e-bikes might have trouble with. The bike also includes a free helmet and a good bike lock, with both of these extras being of good quality.
The NAKTO is great for off-road use and not merely city use. As long as your off-road trips are not too far, you can take this sturdy bike on trails. The bike is relatively cheap while being of high quality, so it may be one of the best choices. A robust one year warranty also protects you. The bike does not have as many fancy features as a lot of the more expensive bikes do.
4) Amiti E+2
While not exactly cheap, the Amiti E+2 is an excellent bike that will immediately get people’s attention. The bike looks as great as it feels to ride, and everyone will notice that you have bought something impressive. The bike offers several different speed settings, with there being a smooth transition between each speed. The bike is very safe – well balanced and with an above par braking system.
The range may also make the Amiti E+2 worth its price. You can get 110-140km on this bike before the battery runs out. The motor is also unusually powerful, delivering anywhere from 50% to 360% of pedaling power. It is a great bike for use both in the city and on country roads. The bike also has a high tech 6-sensor technology which will cancel out bumps and give you the smoothest ride possible. The tires are capable of handling rough terrain and not merely asphalt. The width of the tires adds to the bike’s safety. It is fairly expensive, but you can always pay it off one month at a time.
5) Thrive E+ Pro Ex
The Thrive E+ Pro EX is another high end, high price women’s electric bike that looks and feels like a high-end bike should. A smartphone app can link to your bike, so you can keep track of how many miles you ride and much other information. You can also post information about how much riding you do on Facebook and other social media. The frame is very well designed and supports a comfortable sitting position that does not strain the back.
The best thing about the Thrive is that the amount of energy that the motor produces is computer controlled. The computer can detect exactly how much power the motor needs and the current time. The computer’s perfect timing leads to exceptionally smooth riding.
The appearance of the thrive E+ minimizes the visibility of the motor and battery. At first glance, the E+ may look like an ordinary hybrid bike with no motor. The bike is silver and black and has a modern and aerodynamic rather than old fashioned look to it. The bike comes with a carrier, lights, and a kickstand. It is a great choice, although it is the most expensive bike we list here.
6) Volt Burlington
The Volt Burlington is a particularly long-lasting bike made by a company known for the quality of its products. While the motor is theoretically weak in wattage (only 250 watts, compared to more like 500 for a powerful motor), the Volt Burlington can still handle steep hills. For whatever reason, the motor does not feel weak.
Taking the Volt Burlington on truly rough terrain is not a good idea, but it can handle off-road routes to some extent. The sleek black appearance with its curved frame is fantastic, perhaps better than any other e- bike we recommend. The bike is also capable of traveling for 60 miles on a single charge. On another level, the Volt Burlington may not be quite as good as the other expensive bikes we recommend. It may not have enough special features to justify its price. If you do not care about special high tech features, and merely want a very stylish and durable bike, then the Volt Burlington might be a good choice.
7) E-Ranger Cruiser
If you are looking for a relatively cheap women’s e-bike that does not have durability problems, you should try the E-ranger Cruiser. The E-ranger cruiser has a 500-watt motor that can reach speeds of 28 miles per hour without pedaling. While it is not quite as comfortable of a ride as some of the more expensive bikes are, it is not a rough ride either. The large wheels and tires provide enough cushioning for the bike to be smooth to ride.
The motor is powerful and will get you up a steep hill at high speed when you set the motor to full power. The bike does not have as much battery range as many other bikes do (30 to 50 miles on easy terrain). If you do not need any more range than the bike offers than there is nothing wrong with the motor and battery. The motor is very strong, and the battery will last for many years before it weakens.
8) Electric Yuba Boda Boda Step-Through Bike
The Yuba Boda Boda Step-Through bike is another great choice at the higher end of the price range. The bike has a child seat and can handle plenty of weight, so you can either take your kids with you or use the bike to move plenty of heavy cargo. The high-tech bike intelligently adjusts the motor to just as much power as you need. One of the best things about e-bikes is that you can choose to use your muscles when on easy terrain and turn the motor on only when the going gets harder.
The bike has plenty of features. The lights are bright and always charged up whenever the bike is, and the excellent chain guard will protect your bike from dirt and mud. The seat is also adjustable for people of different heights. The range is 93 miles at best, which is good even for one of the more expensive bikes. The
bike’s excellent brakes and seat control technology make it possible for you to suddenly stop without losing control. The bike is durable and is backed by an excellent two-year warranty. The bike’s computer and display also gives you plenty of information about your riding habits. If you have the money and want a bike with a high carrying capacity, you might be better off with the Electric Yuba than any of the other options.
What to look for in an electric bike:
Materials used in the frame
There are three different materials used to build these bikes, and those are 1) Aluminum, 2) Steel, 3) Carbon Fiber. Aluminum and steel are cheaper materials, carbon fiber and titanium are for more expensive bikes.
Since an aluminum frame is lightweight and cheap, this is the most common material for electric bike frames. Some people find aluminum bikes to be uncomfortable because of how stiff they are, but newer aluminum frames are more flexible than they used to be. While aluminum is the cheapest material, some higher-end bikes still have aluminum frames.
Steel is the classic material that was used for bike frames before carbon fiber was around, and before aluminum was common. Since steel may offer a smoother ride than aluminum and is a stronger material, it is still used today. Companies that make steel frames are likely to continue to do so in the future. Steel does have a disadvantage, and that is that it is heavier than the other materials. The weight makes it less common than it was before.
Since carbon fiber is both light and very strong, it has an advantage over either aluminum or steel. Carbon fiber is also more flexible than aluminum or steel. Some people insist on carbon fiber bikes and will not consider other materials. The disadvantage of carbon fiber is its price. While carbon fiber bikes are not as expensive as they were before, they are still more expensive than steel or aluminum bikes.
Number of gears offered
The more gears your bike offers, the more different types of terrain it can handle. A bike with a lot of gears has the power to perform well in any situation. If your battery runs out, you may need to pedal up hills, and need to be able to switch to low gears. With more gears, you will be able to shift to precisely the right gear for each situation.
Women’s Specific Bikes
Women’s bikes can be more comfortable for women to ride than men’s bikes. Women prefer to ride in a more upright posture than men, and the bikes take this into account. The frame of a women’s bike is also designed based on a women’s geometry and stature. While a woman can ride a man’s bike, you will generally get a more comfortable ride with a bike designed for women.
A good bike has a long-lasting battery. You should be able to get where you want without doing much pedaling if you choose to do this. Make sure the range of your battery is enough. If you are taking your bike a fair distance to work and back, you will need a good battery range. Be on the safe side and choose a bike with a range that is more than long enough. How long it takes to charge up the battery also matters. If it takes too long to charge up the battery, you might not be able to use your motor when you need it.
Bikes vary a lot in how fast they can go. Many can go 28 miles per hour; many others can only reach half that speed. Know what you are buying in advance, or else you might be disappointed by how little power the motor has.
Wheels, suspension, and tires
A bike with better suspension gives a smoother ride. The size and quality of the wheel sand tires also affect how bumpy the ride is. Many e-bikes have fat tires. These tires are a safety and control feature. The wider the tires are, the better the bike grips the road.
A good modern e-bike should contain some digital technology. Bikes often offer LED displays that show your speed, mileage, and other information. You may be able to connect a smartphone app to your bike and record information about how many miles you have traveled. There might also be some computer technology in making sure that the bike does not use any more power than necessary, or even actively absorbing shocks to make the ride more comfortable.
Weight, folding frames, and size
Smaller and lighter bikes that you can fold up are often preferable to larger and heavier bikes that you can’t fold. If you want to take your bike with you when driving somewhere, a folding bike is a good idea. You might also not have a lot of room to store things, in that case, you should go with a small bike you can fold.
Now might be a great time to invest in an electric bike. Many bikes are affordable on a budget, and they can last for a very long time if you take care of them. Hope you enjoyed thanks for reading!
