Electric & Power Assisted E-Bikes for Sale

You love everything about cycling — except having to navigate those steep hills! An electric bicycle, also referred to as an -bike, gives you the best of both worlds.

An electric bike is equipped with a battery-powered motor, which is designed to complement pedalling rather than replace it. Many models also provide the ability to set the power level to meet your style of riding. Having been proven in the European markets, Electric bikes are rapidly growing in popularity throughout Australia, and you can find a large selection of high-quality models right here at BikeExchange.

Types of Electric Bikes

E-bikes can be divided into two main categories:

1. Pedelec E-Bikes

The more common type of E-bike is the Pedelec. This includes an auxiliary power source that cannot exceed 250 watts and typically no manual throttle control. The pedelec system purely provides proportional power assistance while the pedals are being turned. With a pedelec bike, no power assistance is provided at speeds in excess of 25 kph.

The Pedelec idea has been widely adopted as the ‘standard’ E-bike, with the most popular systems in Australia being the Bosch ebike and Shimano STEPS. However, even the likes of Yamaha are providing motor and battery systems for bike brands to use.

2. Power Assisted

These bikes are equipped with an auxiliary motor of up to 200 watts (legal number) and a throttle that can push the motor to a maximum speed of 25kph. The pedal assist system activates the motor while you’re pedalling.

Who Can Benefit From Electric Bikes?

Electric bikes are ideal for any rider who wants to enjoy the benefits of cycling, but without the heavy exertion that comes with climbing steep hills. They’re also great for extended cycling excursions, as they allow riders to conserve their energy. What’s more, e-bikes offer an eco-friendly alternative to commuting to and from work or school in an automobile.

As Australia’s number one online marketplace where bike buyers and sellers can come together, BikeExchange is the best place to find your perfect electric bike. Retailers and private bike sellers from across the country list their bikes for sale right here. If you haven’t had the chance to try out an electric bike, give one a test today. Many people are surprised at how easy it is to ride with the electric assist off, and just how much boost they give when it’s engaged.

With an electric bike, you can have the best of both worlds: the exercise and health benefits of a traditional bicycle, and the ease and convenience of an electric bicycle. There’s a reason e-bikes are becoming so popular in Australia. Browse our selection of men’s, women’s and unisex e-bikes — you’re sure to find a model that fits your needs and budget.
