The top-rated electric road bikes for 2014 and 2015 include the Haibike XDURO Superrace and the Easy Motion Neo Race. Consumers who prefer electric mountain bikes or electric city bikes may consider the Haibike XDURO FS RX 27.5? or the Kalkhoff Tasman Tour C8 Premium.
The Haibike XDURO Superrace is remarkable for its lightweight aluminum construction, efficiency and speed. It is available in five frame sizes, ranging between 50 and 62 centimeters. The 350-watt geared motor, cadence sensor and torque sensor allow intelligent feedback and motor activation. Negatives of the Haibike XDURO Superrace include inconvenient placement of the battery pack, narrow tires, price and a lack of a throttle mode. The bike's aluminum construction also fails to minimize vibration when compared with frames that feature carbon forks.
