City E-Bikes


City e-bikes are designed to be practical and capable of transporting small luggage. The bike’s electromotor ensures that you don’t get all sweaty on your way to work or a business meeting. This e-bike type is highly durable and requires minimal maintenance even with frequent use. Both the saddle and handlebars are positioned to keep you upright and comfortable. This gives you a good overview of the road and the seat tube angle allows you to easily get on and off the bike.

Wheel diameter

Bikes with large wheels are faster, but also more difficult to control. For city bikes, the common wheel diameters are 20", 26" and 28"​.

  • 20” wheels are more compact and better manoeuvrable, but slower.
  • 28” wheels let you ride faster, but they take up more space and their manoeuvrability is worse.

When choosing, consider your riding style and preferences.

Motor mounting position

E-bikes have several types of motor mounting configurations and each of them affects riding performance and handling differently.

  • E-bikes with a mid-drive system are easier to control and the ride is smoother.
  • E-bikes with a hub drive (front/rear) are not as well-balanced as mid-drive bikes.

Frame material

Frame material affects the bike weight and characteristics.

  • Aluminium is the most common frame material due to its light weight and low cost.
  • Steel is quite heavy and susceptible to corrosion. On the other hand, the bike is steadier when riding on uneven surface.
  • Carbon or carbon composite is five times lighter and six times stronger than steel. It has high durability and great shock-absorbent properties.
