What is an electric hybrid bike?
Electric hybrid bikes combine the benefits of traditional road bikes and mountain bikes, offering a versatile solution for riders. They offer maximum comfort in both on-road and off-road conditions, providing you with necessary support wherever you take it. Electric hybrid bikes take regular hybrid bikes to the next level with the pedal-assist motor function, allowing you to take on more difficult tracks, inclines and longer distances. They are well-suited for commuting and leisurely rides, providing a more relaxed and comfortable experience compared to performance-focused bikes. The 250W EverDrive motor makes cruising along different terrains easier than ever, taking a lot of the effort out of traditional cycling. If you want to take on tougher mountain climbs, you can also try out our electric mountain bike range. Electric hybrid bikes allow riders to enjoy the best of both worlds, whether you prefer smooth roads or adventurous off-road trails.
What to look for in an electric hybrid bike
When choosing an electric hybrid bike, consider the following features:
– Motor Options: Most of our electric hybrid bikes will come equipped with a 250W EverDrive motor. These will come as either hub-drive, which will apply power to the wheel they're built onto, and mid-drive, which apply power directly to the drivetrain. Mid-drives are generally considered more efficient and better performing, while hub-drives provide a more affordable option that also requires less maintenance. All our motors are compliant with Australian road regulations regarding e-bikes, although it's a good idea to check the local road rules where you are to ensure you choose an appropriate motor.
– Tyre Selection: The tyres on electric hybrid bikes can vary in width and tread pattern. Consider the terrain you'll be riding on to determine the appropriate tire choice. Wider tyres will offer more stability, but can make the bike less agile, and vice-versa for thinner tyres.
– Frame Design: Look for a lightweight and durable frame that provides stability and comfort. You should also consider the suspension options for your bike. Front suspension forks allow for greater shock absorption and are great for tackling uneven or bumpy terrain. Rigid frame bikes, which have no suspension, provide a lightweight, low maintenance alternative that handles better on even terrain.
– Additional Features: Explore available accessories and features that enhance your riding experience, such as integrated lighting systems, fenders, and cargo-carrying capabilities.Read Less
Electric Hybrid Bikes FAQ
What is an electric hybrid bike good for?

With an electric hybrid bike, you're giving yourself a versatile riding experience suitable for a wide range of riders.
Can electric hybrid bikes go on gravel?
Yes, electric hybrid bikes are designed to handle different surfaces, including gravel roads and trails. The combination of a robust frame, suitable tires, and suspension forks ensures a comfortable and stable ride on gravel.
Are electric hybrid bikes good for long distance?
