About the e-bikes
Awesome and fun people ride e-mountain bikes. E-bikes (electric bicycles) allow you to go further, traverse more challenging terrain and not exhaust yourself in the process. They are the perfect way to explore. No hill will be too steep and no road too long when you are on one of the Ride Republic e-bikes.
If you are with a group of riders of varying abilities the e-mountain bike is perfect. Nobody gets left behind as everyone can move at the same speed. So if you are awesome or fun (or both), check out the Ride Republic e-mtbs below and start your adventure now.
How do the e-bikes work?
Designed to enable you to ride further and faster than you could on a normal bike, the power boost when you pedal helps you save energy, increases your pedal power and simply makes you feel good!
The e-mountain bikes are equipped with a Giant SyncDrive Pro electric motor and PedalPlus 4-sensor technology that understands the power your legs are producing and then boosts it according to your settings. With this technology under your feet the Fathom and Vall E+ bikes make the hills around Beechworth achievable by anyone
There are 5 levels of boost and the bikes have a 4-5hr battery life. These e-bikes will help you up steeper, longer hills and have you covering more distance than ever before.
Shimano hydraulic disc brakes provide plenty of stopping power, the RockShox 120mm fork and fat “Plus” tyres soak up trail bumps, and the 1×10 Shimano gearing keeps things nice and simple.
All about the ‘E’
When you power the e-mountain bike on via the simple handlebar On/Off button there’s very little – aside from the tiny white LEDs on the control panel – to suggest you’re on a motorised bike. There’s no engine sound, as this isn’t a petrol motorbike or moped. There’s no vibration, as there’s no engine spinning. And there’s no lever or twist throttle like a moped or quad bike.
The power, provided by the 500Wh EnergyPak battery integrated into the downtube, is only accessed when you pedal. It’s a boost to your own pedalling action and power, designed to help you rather than fully power you.
When you sit on the e-mountain bike, turn the bike on and push off for the first time, the motor starts whirring, the boost gives you a noticeable shove, and you immediately realise the hilly ride you’re about to tackle is going to be fantastic fun!
