Best Top 5 Electric Bikes of November, 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 bicycles for sale in a bike shop.

Their design has come a long way. In 2018, these specialized ebikes look super 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 is our top selection for the best electric bike of November, 2018:

 

1) Nakto Electric Bike

Overview

We’ve had a ton of fun zooming the city streets on the Nakto. 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 carbon steel frame not only looks slick but it’s incredibly durable, even when the bike is left outside. The Nakto comes fitted with the best mechanics in the business; quality hydraulic brakes and Shimano gears for easy riding. 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.

What we especially love is how quiet this e bicycle 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 conventional peddle bike. This is a great commuter 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 and rings in at a very affordable price. 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) Ecotric Electric Bike

Overview

Looking for a super fun on and off road electric bike? You’ll love this.

What We Like

The Ecotric is fitted with wide tires, ideal for transferring from smooth concrete to rocky roads. The frame is aluminum, which makes this electric bike beautifully light and hard-wearing all at the same time. There is a 1/2 twist throttle and gears that will help you get to a max speed of an impressive 20mph.

What Needs Improving

A little assembly is required on arrival, but with the instructions, it’s straightforward.

9.7Expert Score
The Final Verdict

This electric bike will thrill adults and big kids alike. It's compact, fast and safe. Perfect for city and country rides.

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.

8.8Expert 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 Power Pro

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.

What Needs Improving

There’s really not many cons with this bike.

9.9Expert Score
The Final Verdict

This is a great, cheap, 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) Razor Motocross Electric Bike

Overview

What We Like

This dexterous electric dirt bike is recommended for anyone over the age of 14. It’s fitted with double suspension and big tyres to help you tackle tough terrain. You also get a good selection of gears, that gives you optimal control. The Razor can go as fast as 15 mph on average, and comes with an excellent braking system. The aesthetics are on point, and the racer look is sure to impress. Don’t forget your helmet!

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 fun, dirt track motocross electric bike that will bring you a sense of freedom. Ideal for older teenagers and adults, the Razor delivers in performance. Cheap bikes for off-road don't get much better than this.
