Today, both the world's best bicycle brands and hundreds of brands specializing only in electric bikes offer electric bikes with different features and designs. The race to be among the best electric bike brands has created a competitive market where brand new electric bikes are introduced every day. At this stage, while choosing the best electric bike brands, I left out the bicycle brands that are known for their traditional bicycles and that have included electric bicycles in their product ranges in recent years. I focused only on the brands that specialize in electric bikes and tried to determine the best e-bike brands among them.
For nearly a century from the early 1800s, the bicycle was the only vehicle that could move with pure muscle power. In the late 19th century, inventors began to develop the first electric bike designs that freed the bike from muscle dependency. However, the conversion of human power to electric power and the ability to provide stable power thanks to advanced battery technologies enabled the creation of modern electric bikes as of the 1990s. And thanks to the successive developments, electric bikes have become a part of our daily lives.
As of the early 2000s, the electric bike has become a trend in popular culture. While some users use electric bicycles for recreational purposes, a large mass started to prefer it as a vehicle used for urban transportation. This led to the establishment of many e-bike brands. This has made the race to be among the top electric bike brands very competitive. Once the right motor and battery suppliers are found, the challenge is to design stylish and functional electric bikes that make life easier. In order to be one of the best electric bike brands, it is necessary to take a place in the hearts of users.
Electric bikes, which were instantly distinguishable from conventional bicycles with their bulky appearance until just a few years ago, can be thinned to almost the same frame thickness as a road bicycle with the development of battery technology. Various electric bikes, designed for many different purposes, appear in all areas of life. Some use electric bikes to deliver pizza, some get an electric bike to go to work or school, and some ride their electric bikes on rough trails.
I focused on brands whose product ranges consist of e-bikes. It would not be wrong to say that a few of them produce foldable bikes. To bring together the best electric bike brands, I have selected the most prominent among hundreds of electric bike brands and brought them together for you. While some of them make a difference with their modern designed e-bikes, some of them manage to attract the attention of consumers with their wide range of electric bicycles. Let's take a look at the best electric bike brands.
