Gtech eScent Saves the day

Bought this at a reduced price on a bike2work scheme. After many years of commuting 30 miles per day I took a 6 month lazy break and was struggling to regain the strength and stamina to regularly get back in the saddle. This Gtech is superb in ECO mode. It provides a little push when needed. The components are well thought out and work perfectly. The saddle doesn’t suit me but the Thudbuster seat post is great. It really does smooth out the road and trail without bobbing you out of the saddle. I wish I’d discovered these seat posts years ago. Tredz has done a great job of putting the bike together. Everything worked straight out of the box. I’m not using it in full power mode as I don’t really need it and don’t like the pulsing of the motor cutting in around the speed limiter. ECO mode is smooth and still provides assistance at higher speeds up to the approx 15mph limit. In ECO mode over 15 mile one way commute it uses only 30% of the battery averaging 14mph. The ECO mode on single track needs a different style of riding on tight switchback climbs. I find I’m feathering the rear brake to compensate for any power surge on technical ascents. I’ve also ridden the bike without the battery and it’s an easy bike to ride. I’m very pleased with this eBike at the discounted price.

G tech e-bike

Great bike if you only need to commute small distances as you do not get the 30miles distance, more like 20 if your lucky an turn it off on flats and downhill. The gears are very smooth and brakes work great. It's a great all round e-bike and works really well off terrain and when turned off. Great value for money could have just done with a better battery with longer distances.

Great value

This is my first ebike so I don’t have anything to compare it against. The main purpose of this is to ride to work, so I was thinking of a hybrid / road ebike. However the electric boost means that this is perfectly good for road trips - and brilliant for potholes! The power comes in as soon as you pedal, so you need to learn not to pedal during a tight turn. Once its up to the 15mph its easy enough to take it faster in top gear, although those with long straight roads may miss not having a couple of steps higher on the gearing. When coming to a stop I feel the need to pedal when changing down gear which gives you an unwanted acceleration, but that’s probably just me getting used to an ebike. The bike is not light, but equally the power meant that this was not a problem for me on the road. Maybe people using it on the road most of the time would benefit from road tyres, but I don’t plan to change them. The bike is well put together with good quality parts. Tredz did a good job of assembling it - I had the pedals on and handlebars straightened within half an hour. I ordered the mud guards afterwards and the rear one is a bit fiddly but fine if you take some air out of the tyre. After 10 miles on max power I had over 50% so its plenty for my journey, but some may want an additional battery (they’re not heavy). I’m sure there are better ebikes around, but I’m confident you won’t get a better one for the price Tredz are offering this for right now (nearly half price). For 90% of casual cycling, this bike is great fun.

Electric Mountain Bike Guide

Is an Electric Mountain Bike Right for Me?

If you’re new to the cycling world, we highly recommend taking a look at our bike buying guide overview or our electric bike buying guide to help you decide what type of e bike is right for you.

When you’re choosing an electric mountain bike, there are a few things to look out for, which can help you to work out the quality and performance to expect from a particular model.


Usage & Suspension travel

Just like a regular full suspension or hardtail mountain bike, the amount of available suspension travel on an eMTB varies with the intended use. Depending on the type of mountain bike riding you’ll be doing, you’ll want a bike with longer or shorter suspension travel as well as components suited to more or less technical terrain.

Type

Travel

Usage

Frame Material

Most electric mountain bike frames are made from aluminium alloy, although some are made from carbon fibre composite.

Aluminium

Aluminium alloy is lightweight, stiff, strong. Manufacturers often develop their own aluminium alloys, such as ALUXX by Giant. Aluminium is found on a wide range of e bikes, from entry-level and enthusiast bikes, right the way up to top-spec eMTBs.

Carbon Fibre

Carbon fibre is lighter, stiffer, stronger, and more expensive than aluminium. The main benefit for electric mountain bikes is that carbon frames are stiffer for improved handling.


Drive Tech

Designed to enable you to have more fun on the trails, all of our electric mountain bikes feature powerful crank drive motors with long lasting lithium-ion battery packs and easily accessible control units.

Motor

Crank drive motors boost your natural pedalling power. The cranks are connected to the motor and the motor is connected to the chainring which then powers the bike forward. The bike senses the pressure that you put though the pedals and then adds an appropriate level of power to make pedalling easier. This additional power is delivered seamlessly, and you will feel like your legs have just become much more powerful. Motors all have a nominal 250w output and are usually provided by big component manufacturers like Bosch, Shimano, Yamaha and Brose.

Battery

Easily charged either on or off the bike the lithium-ion battery pack will offer you long lasting assistance. Where and how you ride will make a big difference to the range that you can expect to achieve from a single charge, but most e bikers find the capacity of these batteries to be more than sufficient. Some brands offer innovative ways to integrate the battery within the frame. 400Wh or 500Wh batteries are most common.

Control Units

All electric mountain bikes allow you to adjust the amount of power the motor delivers. This helps to help you manage the battery capacity. Control units have some kind of display that, at the very least, shows remaining battery capacity and the current power mode. Some control units feature a handlebar mounted display unit that displays additional information like estimated range and satellite navigation prompts. Many eMTBs offer Bluetooth and ANT+ connectivity with smartphone apps for fine tuning the motor output and accessing more advanced features.

Groupset

An electric mountain bike’s groupset, is where the biggest difference in component quality is seen. A complete groupset comprises of the following parts:

  • Chainset (aka Crankset)
  • Bottom bracket
  • Brakes
  • Brake levers
  • Shifter
  • Derailleur
  • Chain
  • Cassette

Electric mountain bike groupset components are typically supplied by either Shimano or SRAM, sometimes with additional manufacturers like Magura, Tektro and TRP supplying brake systems. You will mostly find one-by drivetrains with a single front chainring and a wide range rear cassette.

Shimano and SRAM both produce a range of groupsets to suit different budgets. The hierarchy table here compares the different Shimano and SRAM groupsets to determine which bikes offer the best performance.

Wheel Size

Just like regular mountain bikes, e MTBs are available with different wheel sizes. 27.5” (650b) and 29” wheels are both available but the most common e MTB size is 27.5”+ (6fattie) that bridges the gap between the two.

MTB wheel sizes

27.5” (650b) wheels strike the ideal balance between fast rolling and nimble handling. They are lighter than 29” wheels so are faster to accelerate. On the other hand, the smaller wheel size rolls less efficiently than the larger size, making the bike more prone to losing speed over rough ground.

29” wheels roll fastest but are less nimble. These wheels are naturally smoother over rough ground but are heavier and slower to accelerate. Larger riders may find a better fit on a 29er, but smaller riders may find 29” wheels a little cumbersome.

27.5+ (6fattie) wheels feature wider 2.8” – 3.0” tyres and offer more cushioning (float) as well as more grip. With the extra size of the high-volume tyres, the overall wheel diameter is similar to a 29er, so these wheels carry speed very well on rough ground. Plus sized wheels are ideal for electric mountain bikes as they deal best with the extra weight of the motor and battery, and are great for riding more challenging terrain.


Suspension components

Electric mountain bike suspension components (i.e. the fork or rear shock absorber) are also a way to identify the quality of a bike. While Fox and RockShox are the most common manufacturers, there are a number of brands producing suspension components for mountain bikes.

Entry Level eMTBs

Entry level electric mountain bikes (up to approximately £2,500) may come supplied with a fork and rear shock supplied by SR Suntour, X-Fusion or RockShox. These components will allow a limited amount of adjustment, including:

  • Coil spring preload / air spring pressure adjustment.
  • Lockout switch.
  • Rebound damping adjustment on models towards the top of the price range.
Mid-range and enthusiast eMTBs

Mid-range and enthusiast eMTBs (up to approximately £5,000) use components from brands including Fox, RockShox and Manitou. At this level, suspension components have features like:

  • Preload adjustment / air spring pressure adjustment
  • Rebound damping adjustment
  • Lockout switch
  • Multi-position ‘mode’ switch
  • Compression damping adjustment
Top of the range eMTBs

Top of the range electric bikes (over £5,000) also use components from Fox, RockShox and Manitou, with a few select models using parts from high-end suspension brands like Ohlins. At this price, suspension components have features including:

  • Coil spring preload adjustment / air spring pressure adjustment
  • High and low speed rebound damping adjustment
  • High and low speed compression damping adjustment
  • Lockout switch
  • Multi-position ‘mode’ switch
  • Advanced low-friction coatings (e.g. Fox’s golden-coloured Kashima coating)
