How to Choose the Right Ebike for You
Date Posted:2 June 2022
Whether for commuting or long weekend leisure rides, ebikes can add a huge amount of value, convenience and enjoyment to your everyday life. But the first step toward improving the way you get around is deciding which ebike is the right fit for your regular journeys.
That’s why we prepared this handy guide to help you decide which ebike model is made for you. Read on to find your perfect match.
If you want… Versatility
Many of us need an electric bike that can reliably cruise around the city while also being able to handle longer out-of-town trails at the weekend. An e-trekking bike is the answer, balancing a lighter frame for quick and convenient city rides with motors and frames that are sturdy enough for longer ride times and slightly rougher routes.

If you want… Off-Road Rides
If you have a passion for longer, more adventurous rides that take you through nature and off-road bike trails, then an e-mountain bike is for you. Prioritizing rugged tires and frames with motors that can power a far-reaching range, e-mountain bikes are big beasts that can handle anything you throw at them. Perfect for those that love the challenge of besting tricky trails.

If you want… Portability
To get to the best rides, sometimes you need to go further afield, and that means a bike that you can easily pack up and transport to the scenic spots and bike trails that you want to explore. E-folding bikes are the perfect solution, designed to be folded up to fit into your RV or car trunk and transported to wherever you want to ride.
Built with fat tires to take on tough terrain, a torque sensor for seamless pedal assist and a sturdy yet sleek, foldable frame, the ET.Cycle F1000 is our premier e-folding bike, expertly balancing power with portability (It was even featured by CBS News as one of the best e-folding bikes on the market).

For those looking to get started with their first e-folding bike, the ET.Cycle is a great introduction, matching a slightly lower peak range and battery life with a still-fearsome strong frame and fat tires. Learn more here.
If you want… A Convenient Commute
If your ebike ambitions only extend to a reliable and efficient way of getting around your city or getting to work and back effortlessly, then you should be looking for what we call an e-city bike. These are lightly built for convenience and optimized for shorter range rides and easy urban terrain, making them ideal for the kind of simple regular rides that can enhance city life.
An e-city bike built with the best parts and the sophisticated design, the NCM C7 e-city bike prioritizes performance with a torque sensor and a drive system designed to comfortably cover all your city rides. Learn more here.
Ideal for seeing what city e-bikes are all about, the NCM C5 combines high-end technology like torque sensor pedal assist with an accessible price point, without skimping on range or power. Learn more here.
If you want… Tough Terrain
If you’re a rider that sometimes finds themselves riding on challenging terrain that’s less solid – think sand, snow, asphalt or dirt – then you should consider what we call an e-fat bike. As you probably guessed from the name, these are ebikes built with extra-fat tires and sturdy frames to remain stable and in control on any terrain that you tackle.
