Best Top 5 Electric Bikes of September, 2018 – Travel with Convenience & Style!

Our last update to this page was

Electric bikes or “e-bikes” have skyrocketed in popularity. It’s estimated that they now make up around a third of all bike sales globally.

Their design has come a long way. In 2018, these super cruisers look ultra modern and pack enough power to take you up to 50 miles on a single charge.

After months of road testing one high-caliber electric bicycle after another, we’re big fans.

So here are the Top 5 Electric Bikes that get our vote in September, 2018:

 

1) ProdecoTech Phantom Electric Bikes

Overview

We’ve had a ton of fun zooming the city streets on the Phantom Electric Bike. First off, this is a top-of-the-range electric  bike. It’s built to withstand long and varied city commutes as well as rougher terrain.

What We Like

The aluminum frame is tough as nails. It carries heavy-duty wheels, shock absorption, and hydraulic brakes. Oh, and a Twist Speed Shifter. Combined, these give you quick acceleration, accurate steering and a safe stop.

The actual ride is super comfortable. The saddle is designed to give proper support to almost any body type. This will allow you to cruise for dozens of miles. You’ll definitely feel like you’ve worked out without any of the aches and pains. The 500w motor will help you reach speeds of 20 mph and can take you as far as 30 miles on a single charge. This should be plenty fast even for the adrenaline junkies out there.

What we especially love is how quiet this ebicycle is. If you’re riding down the street or through the park, the gentle hum of the motor is unnoticeable. This is because it’s hidden by the sound of your smooth pedaling. If you’re not into flashy gadgets, any ordinary person would assume you’re riding a basic mountain bike.

What Needs Improving

Something to bear in mind: This bike is for adult riders. If you’re considering it for kids, make sure that their legs touch the ground to keep them safe.

9.5Expert Score
The Final Verdict

This is the quintessential electronic bicycle that’s worth every cent. It packs sophisticated features in a solid frame. It has the old school feel of riding a high-spec bicycle. If you’re only going to invest in an electric bike once in your life, go for it. Plus it comes with full warranty!

2) T4B Greaser Retro Style Electric Bike

Overview

Love an old school style cruiser? This e-bike is going to blow your mind. The pictures simply don’t do it justice. Apart from a 1970’s vintage rock ‘n’ roll design that makes this electric bike look like it’s stepped out of a Harley Davidson catalogue, you get a ton of power.

What We Like

As soon as you wrap your hand around the handlebars of the T4B, you can feel the strength and quality of the crafted steel frame. It’s fitted with hydraulic tektro auriga brakes that are the best in the business. The tires are thick and durable, able to float over rocky roads. The seat is over-sized, which makes it ideal for most riders and feels extra comfortable.

Now for the modernities. This electric bike is fitted with a hidden Samsung battery, you won’t even know it’s there. Until you switch on pedal assist when this bike will let you tour for almost 40 miles on a single charge at speeds of 20mph. There is a user-friendly LCD screen that gives you control and stats on your ride. The 7 – gear system is by trusted Shimano, so they’re bound to last.

What Needs Improving

This bike is a beast so it’s a slightly stiffer ride than some of the agile e-mountain bikes we’ve reviewed. But for riding in the city or smooth roads in the country, you’ll love it.

9.8Expert Score
The Final Verdict

This mega vintage electric bike has all the wow you could want. Sure, it's pricey but for that you get something absolutely unique. It's an investment into the future, and something you'll eventually want to pass on to your kids.

3) SWAGTRON SwagCycle E bike

Overview

Get ready to get your swag on with this fun and unique electric bike from Swagtron. This bike is a fusion between a traditional bicycle and a sexy scooter. Whatever reservations you might harbor over electric bikes in general, you won’t want to knock it ‘til you try it!

What We Like

The body is made from light and durable aluminum. The handlebar comes with simple controls to let you accelerate, brake, monitor battery life, operate headlights and of course…sound the horn. There’s even an USB point that will let you charge your iPhone or Android on the go. The bike can reach a top speed of 10mph. Feel the wind in your hair as you zoom up and down hills and past all that city traffic…

To be honest, this bike is really designed for city commuters or kids riding around the suburbs. The fact that it’s foldable will let you carry it on the bus, on the train or even on the plane. It’s just not designed for heavy riding, long distances or tough terrains. If you want something sleek and fabulous at a fraction of the cost of most other e-bikes, this baby’s for you.

What Needs Improving

But (and this is an important “but”), if you’re attempting longer rides – keep an eye on the battery life. I found the promise of 10 miles on a single battery charge to be way too liberal. Also, the wheels aren’t geared for rocky roads so as long as you stick to concrete, you’ll avoid those nasty punctures.

8.4Expert Score
The Final Verdict

This bike has the cool-factor for city dwellers. It’s compact, portable and stylish. However, it’s not hardwearing…so if you’re an off-road enthusiast, check out our other top picks.

4) ANCHEER Folding Electric Mountain Bike

Overview

Do you love mountain biking in the great outdoors? Need a little boost when climbing hills? This one’s for you!

What We Like

The experts at ANCHEER have designed the perfect basic electric bike that will take you from city scapes to the countryside. This is made possible by the solid aluminum alloy frame and added carbon steel fork. There is plenty of shock absorption and sizeable wheels if you do veer on to patchy roads.

The Ancheer comes with outstanding Shimano Tourney gears in 6 x speeds. This gear system is one of the best in the business. Similarly the front-rear disc brakes are perfectly effective and will bring you to a safe stop even from speed. Speaking of speed, the maximum is 16mph and the bike will travel anywhere between 17-23 miles on a single charge. The battery charges up in 4-6 hours, which is the same for virtually all e-bikes. Plus the bike is foldable for easy transportation.

The Ancheer comes with a full 1-year manufacturer’s warranty in case you have any trouble.

What Needs Improving

There’s really not many cons with this bike. Again it’s good to remember that when it comes to e-bikes generally, you get what you pay for. This is a semi-affordable model so it has some concessions when it comes to materials. For example, the chain guard is made out of plastic. That’s not to say it won’t last, we’ve been riding this bike for almost 500 miles without a hitch.

9.0Expert Score
The Final Verdict

This is a great, affordable, starter electric mountain bike that can cope with tough terrain. If you don’t want to spend too much and need a comfortable and good-looking e-bike, you’ll like this one. Be prepared to do some simple DIY to keep it at optimal performance.

5) Onway Women’s City Electric Bike

Overview

Are you looking for a chic new bicycle to take you around town? Or a high specification electric bike for a special woman in your life? We have the perfect choice. This model from Onway not only looks great, but packs a ton of power for less than $899.

What We Like

Made from durable and lightweight aluminum alloy, this super bike comes equipped with 6 x quality Shimano gears and sturdy wheels. It makes it easy to peddle up and down hills even without engaging the motor. And once you do go into battery assisted riding, you can go a range of 40 miles at a speed of 16mph. That’s pretty impressive! There is also a user-friendly LED display, which makes navigating this bike very easy.

What Needs Improving

The charging time is stated as between 4-6 hours. In reality it took around 5 hours, which is quite long. However if you’re well prepared, this won’t bother you too much.

9.3Expert Score
The Final Verdict

A stylish, sophisticated electric bike that delivers on its promises. The great thing about this purchase is that the company is highly reliable. The bike comes with full warranty and customer support in the event of any issues. A great experience overall.
