How Much Should I Spend on a Good Electric Bike?


Electric bikes are empowering more people than ever to get out and enjoy the outdoors in an entirely new way. Few things compare to the freedom and exhilaration you feel on two wheels, and electric bikes are enabling more people to experience this joy first-hand.

To begin to dial-in to your perfect price range, it’s important to think about what you plan to do with the bike, and where you want to ride. And it's important to buy an electric bike with a long battery range, a powerful motor, and one that's tough enough to hold up to the rigors of regular use.

If your riding consists mostly of paved roads, you can choose between Charge Comfort or Charge City electric bikes, both retailing for $1,699. These bikes are very easy to ride. Your posture stays upright, the seat is superb, and with the Charge Comfort and City - Low Step models, you can step through the frame, making it easy to get on and off the bike.

However, if you're looking to venture off-road or want a more  rugged electric bike  with front suspension, an integrated battery, and chunkier tires, Charge XC is for you at $2,499.

All Charge Bikes deliver on quality and style; they're jam-packed full of features and ready for just about anything. Every Charge electric bike includes folding handlebars and pedals, integrated lights, racks and puncture-resistant tires, for example. 

Ultimately, investing in a high-quality electric bike with durable components is a sure way to bring you joy and excitement for many rides ahead. Otherwise, you may end up spending more time and money upgrading a cheaper bike to get it to do what you need, or replacing it too soon, and that's no fun!

With Charge electric bikes, all you need to do is think about is how and where you want to ride, and we'll get you there.
