In a world that is demanding we take our carbon footprint more seriously, the argument for and against the E-Bike seems like one that continues to divide. 

Purists believe that they are just lazy and take away from the joy of a more traditional ride, whilst petrol heads bemoan a lack of torque. But to think of an E-Bike argument for and against the E-Bike seems like one that continues to divide. 

Purists believe that they are just lazy and take away from the joy of a more traditional ride, whilst petrol heads bemoan a lack of torque. But to think of an E-Bike have left for work every day, or how much fuel the same distance would cost in a car or motorcycle, and we start to see that E-Bikes more than have a place.

Settings on E-Bike batteries also mean that you can decide which moments you get that little extra pump of assistance, leaving you free to put more effort in on flatter terrains if you want to stay fit.

They're also perfect for off-road surfaces from bush to beach, with a battery life of up to 120kms giving you the peace of mind needed for a hefty ride.

E-Bikes have been accepted by one community of hardcore bike fans. Many riders involved in high-speed descents are now using them to get back up to the top of trails quicker, and get two or three more downhill rides more in a single session, with energy left to burn after.

The stigma attached to these machines will always be frowned upon by a few, but the tables have definitely turned. With designs more defined, batteries that last longer than ever and favourable price points, it might be just time to change your opinion when it comes to E-Bikes.
