What is an Electric Road Bike?
Electric road bikes are equipped with an electric motor that assists you while pedalling. Mounted and hidden within the frame of the bike itself, the rechargeable battery is there to help you rather than propel you on its own. The amount of power you receive alongside your own pedalling will depend on the level of support you’ve chosen, your pedalling input and the terrain you’re riding on.
A road e-bike offers drop handlebars and a riding position that’s more geared for sport when compared to a MTB or gravel bike. On road e-bikes, you’ll also have a gear range that’s suited to different terrains.
With the Atreus carbon fibre road e-bike, there is a highly intuitive integrated torque sensor, which determines the amount of power you require, depending on the gradient. The battery provides up to 55 miles of assistance depending on terrain, rider weight etc, making this bike ideal for both long routes and short distances. Range extenders can be purchased separately as well.
