Electric bikes are fantastic. Cannondale e-bikes are easy to live with, easy to ride further and faster, and they can make your life better all round. But, which one to buy? Where does the battery go? How far can you ride one? All these questions and much more are answered below in our easy guide to e-bikes. Enjoy.
Where can I ride my electric bike?
Whether you want to commute through the city, enjoy your new byways or tackle the great outdoors, the e-bike is the perfect solution for all rides. Our e-bikes come with the latest technology made for pure enjoyment.
You can ride to improve your fitness, you can ride further and carry more gear, you can leave the car at home and help save the environment – on an e-bike you can do so much more and really feel the benefits. What's not to like?
How do I charge an electric bike battery?
Charging is easy, simply plug and play. Our e-bikes come with everything you need for standard home and office charging. The right bike is matched with the right battery: the size of the battery will determine how far you can go on a single charge, and also how much power the motor has on tap to help you when you need it. Removable batteries are fully integrated into the bike’s frame, and the battery capacity is measured in Watt-Hour (or ).
Likewise, the harder you use the electric motor on an e-bike, the more battery power it uses. Fear not, the range on our e-bikes is impressive, re-charging is simple, and some models offer additional battery packs that easily attach right to your bike.
We’ve integrated our best bicycle designs with the finest motors and extended-range battery systems to create e-bikes that are perfectly suited for you and the kind of riding you want to do. Whatever that is, wherever you want to ride, we’ve got you covered.
We work closely with the world's leading motor makers to choose the right e-bike motor for the right type of bike – look for Bosch, Shimano or Mahle – featuring either hub-drive or mid-drive. Not only does riding an electric bike feel natural, you also feel energized.
