Hills will feel flatter, you’ll be able to explore further and arrive fresher with our electric bike.

Gtech Electric Bike Review 

Riding the Gtech Sport is very simple. You pedal to go faster and brake to slow down. There are no confusing gears to worry about, simply pedal your Gtech electric bicycle for an easy journey. With this electronic bike there is no oily chain as it has been replaced with a clean carbon belt drive as used on high-performance motor cycles.

A built in computer continually measures your pedalling, smoothly adjusting the power to give you a boost when you need it. Everything in our electronic bicycle is automatic; if you pedal, the bike will help you up to 15mph, but you can pedal harder if you like and go faster. You will feel the power of the electric bike most if you reach a hill and start to slow down.

Cleverly incorporated into the rear wheel of the Gtech is a 36v high torque motor. You can choose from two cruising speeds at the touch of a button or turn the power off to ride it like an ordinary bike. The button is positioned on top of the cleverly designed battery that looks like a water bottle.

At the heart of the Gtech Sport is their latest Lithium-ion battery, the same, lightweight, high performance technology that is used to power electric cars - giving you a range of up to 30 miles dependent on usage. Plenty for a day’s adventure or most trips to work and back.

The electric bike has an easy to read LED display, to tell you how much charge you’ve got remaining. The battery removes from the frame for charging. A mains charger is supplied, which fully recharges the battery from flat in just 3 hours.

The frame of the Gtech Sport is made from the same material used in modern aircraft – Light, strong and designed to last. It puts the rider in an upright and comfortable riding position.

The aluminium alloy is also rust resistant, withstanding the elements whether you are using the bike on roads or country paths. Thanks to its lightweight construction, the Gtech bike weighs 16kg, so you can ride it easily with or without the power on.

 

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

Electric Urban Bike Guide

 

Electric Urban Bike Guide

Is an Electric Urban Bike Right for Me?

If you are new to the world of cycling and ebikes, our electric bike buyers guide will give you a good overview of the different types of pedal assist bikes. This will help you decide if an electric urban bike is right for you.

E bikes are a great way to cycle further with less effort. Urban electric bikes are designed to be comfortable, practical and efficient on roads and cycle tracks. This means that urban e bikes are perfect for commuting and getting about town as well as effortless cycling on quiet roads and cycle tracks.


How do E Bikes Work?

All our ebikes are pedal assist models. This means that the electric motor adds to your natural pedalling power, making them easier to ride. The effect is seamless, and you will feel the extra boost from the first pedal stroke. The harder you pedal the more the power the motor gives you. When you stop pedalling the motor stops too.

You can vary the amount of power that the drive unit delivers when you pedal. All you need to do is select one of the different power modes using the display unit or power button. Some e bikes allow you to customize these modes through a smart phone app that connects to the bike through Bluetooth.

By law all pedal assist ebike are limited to only offer assistance up to 15.5mph. This means that you can ride an ebike everywhere that you can ride a regular bike. You can of course ride faster, but you will have to rely solely on your own natural pedalling power at speeds over 15.5mph.



Are the motors different?

Hub drive motors

Hub drive motors sit inside the wheel hub. These motors are lighter weight than crank drive units but are less powerful, and the power is applied more subtly. You still get enough power to climb the hills and accelerate from a standing start easily, and once up to speed these bikes are easier to pedal. Because they produce less power, hub drive ebikes tend to have smaller battery packs that can be hidden in the frame more easily.

Crank drive motors

Crank drives use a more powerful motor that sits in the bottom bracket area of the bike. The power is added directly to the drivetrain through the cranks. The added power is much more noticeable on a crank drive bike and you will be able to power up the climbs like a Pro athlete. Of course, you can always turn down the amount of power that the motor delivers. This means that you can extend the range and take advantage of the larger battery packs that these bikes are equipped with.


Batteries

Most e bikes use a lithium Ion battery pack. These hold plenty of charge, offer long lasting performance and are quick to charge. The capacity of the battery varies depending on the model. Battery capacity starts at 200Wh for hub drive bikes and goes up to 500Wh or more on high-end crank drive bikes. The batteries can usually be charged both on and off the bike. A 500Wh battery pack will usually take about 4 hours to charge fully from flat.

Display and Connectivity

All ebikes have some type of display that allows you to swap between the different power modes. On some bikes the display is minimal with LED lights to show the remaining battery capacity and power modes. Others have screen that show additional ride data as well. The very best displays act like a high-end cycling computer.

Which type of electric road bike is best for me?

There are a few different types of urban e bike and each is best for a certain type of cycling. Many come ready fitted with luggage racks and mudguards, but you can fit these accessories to all urban e bikes.

Dutch’ style e bikes

Offering an upright cycling position Dutch style e bikes are comfortable and easy to ride. These bikes are perfect for gentle rides around town. You can visit friends or nip to the shops without looking like a ‘cyclist’.

Hybrid’ style urban e bikes

These bikes are based around the classic hybrid look with a mountain bike style riding position combined with road bike wheels. Hybrid style e bikes offer a sportier riding position, so they are better for cycling on busy streets than a Dutch style e bike.

Flat bar road e bikes

Just like a road e bike but with flat handlebars these bikes offer a very sporty riding position. The flat handlebars mean that they are still easy to navigate through the urban jungle. Fit some mudguards and a rack and these bike are very practical too.

Cargo e bikes

If you want to carry lots of luggage then you can’t beat a cargo e bike for practicality. The pedal assist motor makes lot of sense with a cargo bike. Regular cargo bikes require a lot of muscle power, so this limits their use. You don’t get this problem with a cargo e bike, so everyone can ride one.
