10 Benefits of Riding Electric Bikes

10 Benefits of Riding Electric Bikes

Jenny Moore |

Modern mobility has arrived in the form of an electrically-powered two-wheeled wonder, the eBike. Whether you're new to electric bikes or a seasoned veteran in all the incredibly fun ways to ride them, knowing the benefits they deliver makes it simple to understand why they are so easy to love. Read on to learn more about 10 eBike benefits.


1. Faster Riding

Thanks to the boost from the motor, eBikes allow you to increase your average speed compared to a conventional bike. That means even with the same level of effort and added cargo, you can travel at the same speed or faster than if you were riding a conventional bicycle. Plus, if you want to give your legs a rest, you can also use throttle-only mode on your Flyer™ eBike to travel up to 20 mph without pedaling at all.


2. Travel Farther

Since you can move faster on an electric bike than a conventional bike, it increases your overall riding range. In the most favorable conditions, Flyer™ eBikes can travel up to 50+ miles per charge. If you're riding with your Flyer™ L885 longtail cargo eBike, you can even add an additional Lithium-Ion battery pack to instantly double your range. Twice the battery power, twice the distance.

Please note that overall battery range depends on a number of conditions: total payload, road and weather conditions, incline, level of pedal assist, use of throttle, etc.


3. Convenient Commuting

Electric bikes have proven to be a convenient micromobility solution for the modern adult. As discussed above, you can travel farther and faster on an eBike than a conventional bike, allowing you to both cover more distance and slash commute times whether you're headed to work or your child's Little League game.

Similarly, eBikes hold several advantages over the traditional gas-powered car. You can dodge traffic jams using bike routes – eBike can go pretty much anywhere a conventional bike can. Plus, you'll never need to spend time circling the parking lot over and over for an open spot again. Trade in your car keys for a bike helmet and skip the crowded parking lots altogether.


4. Ultimate Versatility

The electric bike is the ultimate versatility vehicle. With 3 ways to ride – pedal-only, pedal-assist, and throttle-only – and a variety of compatible accessories, you can customize your riding experience to match your needs.

Heading to work? Tote your work bag in the rear storage basket and cruise through your commute sweat-free with pedal assist. Dropping the kids off at school? Attach the Kid & Cargo Carrier to your Flyer™ L885 to transport two little ones with ease. Grabbing groceries right after that? No problem – simply zip up the sides of your Kid & Cargo Carrier as it doubles as a spacious storage bin. Do it all with your Flyer™, your everyday micromobility solution.


5. Sustainability

Going electric can also help to minimize your environmental impact. Electrically powered Flyer™ eBikes are a sustainable, eco-friendly alternative to a gas-powered car for short trips. Compared to traditional transportation modes like gas-powered cars or trains, they are more energy-efficient and can help to reduce congestion in urban areas. The Flight Speed™ Lithium-Ion battery on each Flyer™ eBikes is long-lasting and uses state-of-the-art Samsung 50E 21700 Cells, the same as those typically used in electric cars.


6. Hauling Capabilities

What do kids, groceries, work bags, sports equipment, water bottles, purses, and backpacks have in common? They can all be hauled on a Flyer™ eBike! Bring little ones and all your essentials along for the ride – the added boost from an electric bicycle makes pedaling feel effortless even with additional weight. Choose from a variety of storage options like the Kid & Cargo Carrier and the Front Storage Basket to customize the hauling solution that is right for you.


7. Wellness & Health Benefits

Riding an eBike is a great way to seamlessly integrate cardio exercise into your daily routine, no matter what your fitness level is. Even in pedal-assist mode, you are still using human power to get moving!

You can also still use an electric bike like a regular bike in pedal-only mode with no electric power if you want to opt for a more traditional cycling workout. Plus, there is nothing like enjoying the fresh air and beautiful scenery wherever you ride while getting your daily physical activity in at the same time.


8. Conquering Hills

Fear no more – Flyer™ eBikes make hills easy. Pedal-assist mode enhances your pedaling power, and throttle-only mode allows you to cruise uphill, no pedaling required. Whether you're dreading that pesky incline on your route to work or you're looking for a little boost during a hill-filled workout ride, the electric motor on your eBike ensures that the hills on your ride never get you down.


9. Don't Sweat It

Say goodbye to the days of arriving at your destination sweaty and exhausted from the exertion of traveling on your conventional bicycle. Less physical effort and faster travel on your eBike means you can ride with ease.


10 They're Flat-Out Fun!
