What Are E-Mountain Bikes?

E-Mountain Bikes (E-MTBs or E-Bikes) are mountain bikes with an electric motor that acts as pedal assistance.

You pedal an e-bike as you would a normal mountain bike and there’s no throttle trigger or anything of that sort. The difference is an electric motor adds extra power to each pedal stroke you make. Although they take a bit of getting used to riding, it’s not as if you’re riding a dirt bike.

Isn’t that cheating you ask? Well, maybe. But it depends on what your goals are for riding in the first place. Sure, if you’re trying to get the fastest time up a super hardcore uphill trail and someone zooms up on an e-bike and steals your Strava time, then yes, they might be ‘cheating’. But if you’re riding to get out in nature and ride for some rad trails for as long as possible, then an e-bike is simply a tool that enables you to do more of what you love.
