Electric bikes are becoming more and more popular in this day and age and are the fastest-growing market in the UK cycling world. With regular folk trying to reduce their carbon footprint, they're switching over to the electric bike as a daily form of transport. Whether it's a daily commute to work, the shops, or the gym, electric bikes are becoming more common on our roads. Easily accessible by everyone electric bikes can start as little as under £400.

What is an Electric Bike?

That's simple, an electric bike is a standard pedal bicycle that has a motor attached that can power and propel it along. Easy right? They're becoming popular because of the powered factor.

A lot of electric bikes have three riding modes. Pedal-only, power assist, and fully powered. Fully pedaled and fully powered are quite self-explanatory, so what's power assist. Well, that’s a little bit of both. You still pedal, but the motor helps and makes it easier for you. Making climbing the pesky hills a piece of cake.

As well as a motor, electric bikes come with different sizes of battery which determines how far and what range they have. The bigger the battery, the further they can go.

Some e-bikes come loaded with disc brakes, suspension, lights, and app capabilities which adds to the riding experience you get. And some can be folded away so they can be put into the car boot, stored under the stairs, or even taken onto a train. 

All of this and they're excellent for the environment. With the world becoming greener the electric bike is going to become a more popular form of transport.

Wheels? But seriously, the fundamental features of an electric bike is its speed, its range, how comfortable it is, and how safe it is. Other features to consider are weight, foldability, charge speed, Bluetooth and app functions.

Fiido Electric Bike Conclusion

The perfect bike for those of you that do some serious commuting. With a long-range, you don't have to charge as often and even though it has the heaviest weight it keeps up with the other two.

Alternative E-Bike

So, Which Fiido Electric Bike Should You Buy in 2022?

Well, that depends on your circumstances. If money is no object and you hate pedaling, the L3 is the one. For the best of both worlds and urban styling then it's the D4S.
