4 Top Electric Bikes for First-Time Riders

If you want to get into a healthy way of living, or you want to ride more, or you are searching for a more cost-effective and ecologically friendly means to journey, electric bikes are useful to do all of that and even more.

A first investment can result in saving money on train fare or gas with a cardio commute requiring minimal effort.

Electric bikes are perfect for those that are interested in getting into fitness but may not desire the force of a completely pedal-powered bike.

Electric assistance gives room for beginners to ride more and yet, reap the advantages of an outdoor ride.

The technological benefit of electric bikes is the incorporation of a battery-powered motor that allows riders to move farther and faster without breaking any sweat. If you see e-trikes for sale, you will want to buy them up.

That leads us to discuss the top electric bikes suitable for first-time riders.

The EVRYjourney Men's 500W E-Bike

This electric bike may have easily been referred to as the EVRYman's bike, but that is due to the carefully-designed e-bike developed with comfort in mind and ease of usage at the forefront.

The bike has a relaxed aluminum frame design which positions the pedals in front of the hips. The outcome is a bike that feels like a beach cruiser as well as one that is not hard to get off of and on.

Meanwhile, those two attributes are what a first-time rider will value, allowing them to get to the road for biking.

Coupled with being an electric bike that ensures a comfortable ride, this e-bike has a good amount of power. The EVRYjourney 500W e-bike brags about a 500-watt hub motor which pairs with a 500-watt hour battery.

Altogether, this electrical system is capable of operating in two modes (that is, in a full-electric mode and a pedal-assist mode) which will make you zoom in on your destination without effort by you.

In the pedal-assist mode, a cyclist can travel at a high speed of 28 mph and journey as far as 40 miles. However, changing to the full electric requires a journey as far as 20 miles with speeds of about 20 mph.

Changing between full electric, pedal-assist, and no motor assistance can be easily carried out with a mere press of the bike's thumb shifter.

EVRYjourney Women's 500W E-Bike

This is highly similar to the previously-described EVRYjourney Men's e-bike, but there are certain differences to note.

The most notable feature is that this e-bike adds a step-through frame design which is usually sported by women's bikes. This step-through design makes it easier for cyclists to get off and on the saddle. However, you do not need to be a woman to appreciate that.

The design of the frame of this e-bike is relaxed, and compared to the male version of the bike, it looks more similar to a beach cruiser. Still, it brags about grippy tires with seven speeds that give the cyclist several options to deal with highly demanding roads and riding terms.

In addition, this model's women's version has the exact hub and motor set-up as the male's. Hence, with this e-bike, cyclists can move upwards of 40 miles with their pedal assist switched on through the same convenient thumb control positioned comfortably at the grips.

Moreover, cyclists can as well decide to let go of the motor altogether and enjoy a lot of enjoyable and comfortable rides with the aid of the bike's seven speeds.

AroundtheBlock 500W E-Bike

The forward position of the bottom bracket and the pedals on the EVRYjourney Women's and Men's bike provides higher comfort on the knees and hips, particularly for those who experience combined issues in these parts.

Nevertheless, the compromise for the placement is that the cyclist will not be able to get as much natural force with every pedal.

When you have pedals that align more below the hips, you can increase the downward thrust and then drive yourself forward with minimal effort.

For first-time cyclists who prefer bikes that more conveniently deal with inclines with other complicated road parameters, this AroundtheBlock 500W is a good option to go for.

The AroundtheBlock 500W has a more fully developed and classic look which is available in various colors. The design of its frame gives riders higher purchase while having essential features to enhance the comfort of riders such as paired fenders to hinder splash back and sloped back handlebars.

Moreover, this e-bike can be ridden traditionally with only the feet, giving the power, or through the two electric modes of full electric and pedal assist.

Meanwhile, using the easy thumb throttle on the AroundtheBlock 500W, it is possible for cyclists to rapidly increase their speeds with the pedal assist which will take them as fast as about 28 mph for up to 60 miles, or change to all-electric to enjoy a high speed of 15 mph with a range of about 40 miles.

BodyEase 500W E-Bike

This BodyEase 500W is likely the most comfortable bike in the line. It is also arguably a competitor for the most comfortable available electric bike in the market today. It features an entire frame geometry that guarantees easy and comfortable pedaling even when you do not engage in that electric mode. However, for anyone who hates the jars and jolts of traditional bike riding, this e-bike has two suspension systems which are the front fork and seat post suspension systems.

The front fork suspension system has convenient adjustability. Therefore, you can select the correct proportion of sponginess you desire on your ride. You can then prepare it and neglect it.

On the other hand, the seat post suspension system can provide added hip and back support on every type of terrain, with that comfort getting enhanced through a dual-spring seat. Riding this bike is synonymous with riding on a cloud.

Hence, if you have been avoiding cycling because you dislike the jolts that come with it over hard seats or unleveled pavement that make you sore, this BodyEase 500W is the best e-bike for you.

In addition, as a first-time rider, you will absolutely love how all of that comfort-intending design is combined with a high-quality hub motor and battery that can be easily switched on through thumb-pressing.

E-Bikes and E-Trikes

Just like the usual cycling, electric bike commuting aids sustainability and activity. Similar to e-bikes are e-trikes which have also been designed to guarantee a comfortable journey. Thus, you could get recommendations concerning the best e-trikes for sale, particularly for first-time riders.

Dudes! Are you really asking that? Ok, we et it there are alot of dodgy folks online these days trying to make a quick buck. But now, we have put our heart and soul into Rugged Motorbike Jeans and scamming is the last thing on our mind. We are a small team of bikers, generally adventuring around on our various bikes (supermoto's, adventure, naked street and enduro bikes). If you email us you will generally get our CEO Sam or one of our other support staff who love the motorcycle community and are a part of it wherever we go. Everything is legit as soon as you make an order, it is processed immediately and on the way to you.

Yes & No. We sell a wide range of pants which DO have protective knee and hip pads and are suitable for motorcycle riding AND we also sell biker style jeans and pants which, although are all made of durable tough material are not certified for safety and do not have the protective padding needed in case you do get a little too throttle heavy and lay your bike down (we have all been there and done that!). Please check each product and contact us if you have any questions on this.

Since we offer a wide range from various manufacturers, they all have their own sizing per brand. However there is a sizing chart on each product page, look for the tab just above the description or the size chart link on the right side, or email us and we can recommend the size for you.

PLEASE NOTE : the size charts are taken directly from the manufacturer and the length is incorrect on some, the length is generally a standard length based on the waist size (waist size is correct on all size charts).

Typically the standard FREE shipping (which has full online track and trace) takes anywhere from 7 to 40 days, depending on your country. We also offer an expedited shipping service for a low fee of $4.95. Please see the shipping page for more detailed info.
