The Long Distance: Embracing Electric Bikes
July 9, 2023
Are you an electric bike aficionado looking to add another e-bike to your collection? Are you a newbie eager to start riding? You have come to the right place.
From our Rift to our Revv 1 model, Ride1Up prides itself on offering some of the best electric bikes for off-road riding that are designed to go the distance.
Regardless of where you are in your biking journey, there is a general consensus about long-distance bike rides. If you have the right bike, long-distance rides are exhilarating and fun. But if your e-bike is not built to withstand the demands of long distances, it can quickly become arduous, exhausting, and downright unpleasant, which is why you need to consider many factors when touring with an electric bike.
With a wide range of electric bikes designed to meet your needs, Ride1Up offers something for everyone. Whether you rely on your e-bike for traveling to work, want to go adventuring, or simply let the explorer inside of you loose, our bikes offer the power and performance you need to get you to where you want to go. If you are looking to trade in your traditional bicycle for an e-bike, Ride1Up has your back.
Why Choose an E-Bike?
Before we point out our top picks, let’s highlight what it is that makes e-bikes the perfect go-to for long-distance rides:
Comfort Is Key
Your comfort is paramount when it comes to long-distance rides. If you are riding for an extended period of time, you want to feel comfortable in the saddle and practice good posture. Our e-bikes are designed to ensure your comfort throughout the entire duration of your ride.
Moreover, all e-bikes are equipped with pedal assist, minimizing the total amount of energy you have to exert to get to your destination. This, combined with our specific e-bike’s high-mileage capabilities and extended battery lives, will allow you to cover greater distances with ease.
A big fear surrounding the use of e-bikes is battery life. Many fear that their bike will run out of battery halfway through their ride. While this is a reasonable concern to have, Ride1Up bikes come equipped with long-lasting and reliable batteries. Users can also monitor their battery life and the bike’s usage on its display screen.
Which Ride1Up Bike Should You Purchase?
Go the distance with some of our top picks:
A popular choice among cyclists, our limited-edition LMT’D model offers a range of thirty to fifty miles and comes equipped with a torque sensor.
The Rift is the newest addition to the Ride1Up family and offers a versatile design that can withstand all types of terrain. With a forty-five-to-sixty-mile range, the Rift is a great e-bike for long-distance rides in challenging terrain and through urban areas too. Unlike our LMT’D and 700 Series, the Rift offers Class 2 and Class 3 capabilities, giving its rider a little extra flexibility depending on their local rules and regulations.
An ideal bike for the daily commuter, our 700 Series offers a range of thirty-five to fifty miles, which makes it a great option for long-distance rides. Its 750-watt motor gives its rider the power they need to navigate over terrain with ease and efficiency.
