Something for everyone: Lectric XP 3.0

If there’s a better deal on an e-bike, we haven’t found it. Lectric has not only made the cheapest geared e-bike we’ve tested, but also a selection of parts we trust. The XP 3.0 features a 500W hub motor, 499Wh battery, 7-speed drivetrain, and hydraulic disc brakes, making it competitive with e-bikes that cost hundreds of dollars more. Commuters on a budget will love that it comes with a luggage rack, front and rear lights, full fenders and a kickstand. The best part is that it folds up in just a few seconds and fits easily into the trunk or closet of a car.

The only/individual: EBC Model R

E-bikes are fun. Period. But it’s sometimes less easy to find something that suits your look and style. So how about an e-bike that you can customize? The Electric Bike Company Model R is a great choice with fantastic standard features like the 750W motor, suspension fork and step-through frame. The rest can pretty much be customized to your liking. Choose your handlebars, wheel size, drivetrain and more. However, that only scratches the surface. You can choose custom paint colors for the frame, fork, basket and much more. If you want to give a gift to someone who isn’t a fan of everything, make sure you decorate a Model R to represent them!

The Power Bikes RadCity 5 Plus is one of our favorite commuters. We love the step-through frame’s low standover height and short reach to the bar so you can sit upright and see everything around you. If you want to use the rack to transport work items or a load of groceries, it’s better than most thanks to a 59.5-pound weight capacity. The 750W hub motor has the power to support a rider up to 20mph or do all the work with the help of its throttle. A 7-speed Shimano drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes round out the solid selection of parts.

The most reliable and economical towbar carrier: Hollywood Rack SportRider towbar carrier

The Hollywood Sportrider is one of our favorite hitch racks for e-bikes for several reasons. First, it is one of the few hitch racks that can accommodate e-bikes weighing up to 80 pounds. Secondly, it is significantly cheaper than most of its competitors. It lacks a ramp to roll an e-bike into place, but that’s the only criticism we have against it. They’ve also introduced a new e-trike attachment so people don’t need a large SUV or pickup truck to drive somewhere. It can accommodate e-bikes with a wheelbase of up to 60 inches, covering a range of compact cargo e-bikes. With additional accessories, it can even transport e-bikes with step-through frames.

The stylish shoe: Giro Deed Shoe

Not all cycling shoes make you walk like a duck. The Giro Deed looks like a normal sneaker, but is designed to offer the rider a little more support than street shoes.

Wearing a helmet is a good idea, period. But we understand that no one wants to look like an extra in a bad sci-fi movie, which is what makes the Thousand Heritage 2.0 Bike and Skate Helmet such a great option.

It also features an innovative small opening on the back through which a lock can be passed, allowing you to secure your helmet to your bike, protecting your investment.

Everyone who owns an e-bike needs a floor pump. A floor pump is the easiest way to ensure that an e-bike’s tires are inflated to the same pressure before every ride. A constant pressure means consistent traction and handling. The Blackburn Design Core 2 Floor Pump is a remarkably affordable floor pump and features a large, easy-to-read gauge in the base. The pump head works with any type of valve (Schrader valve is most commonly used on e-bikes) and the hose is long enough to reach the valve regardless of orientation.

Flat shoes are no fun, are they? One way to avoid punctures is to use puncture-proof hoses.
