Electric bikes, commute and leisure
Electric bikes are excellent for commuting or leisure, multi-level pedal assist allows the rider to choose how much assistance is given by the electric motor. Many riders choose a higher assistance for hills or high winds and then lower the assistance for the flat or when feeling fresh. Commuters may prefer to use the higher assistance to get to work felling fresh.
Folding electric bikes can be an ideal accessory for many leisure activities such as motorhomes or boating. They can easily be folded to fit in the boot of a car. Batribike also offers an optional storage bag to keep your load space clean for when you have been splashing through the puddles!
