An electric bicycle (also called an e-bike) is the counterpart of the regular bicycle. It is a two-wheeler that provides extra electric support while cycling. Thanks to a motor and battery, this support is generated and transmitted, making cycling faster and more comfortable. This means that cycling on an electric bicycle requires less effort than on a traditional bicycle.
Among electric bikes you will find a new and very popular variant, which will be the speed pedelec. This is a fast electric bike with a much higher speed reach compared to a regular e-bike. A speed pedelec supports up to 45 km/h instead of the 25 km/h of a regular e-bike.
The terms electric bicycle, e-bike, ebike and e-bike are often used interchangeably. This can cause confusion. However, regardless of the spelling or name, it all means the same thing. The term e-bike may have a more modern look and sound a bit more adventurous, but rest assured, regardless of the term, the meaning remains unchanged and everyone will understand that it is a bicycle with electric assistance.
