Which is the Best Electric Bike for 2022?


In 2022, the world of transportation will go electric in a big way. Thanks to companies like Tesla, Nissan, and Chevrolet, electric cars have begun to eliminate harmful emissions while offering roughly the same power and range as traditional cars. Electric bikes are on a different journey; the addition of an electric motor gives the humble bike the horsepower to get from place to place faster and with less effort, leaving no carbon footprint. The best electric bikes give riders the option to let the motor do all the driving or use pedal assist to increase their muscular power.

If you're looking for the best electric bikes, there are plenty to choose from, with electric motors and batteries added to a wide range of bikes to add extra power. The team at Magicycle put our heads together and chose 4 ebikes we’ve deemed the Best Electric Bikes of 2022. Three of these ebikes are new for this year, one of these is upgraded but is tried, tested, and still holds true as the best in their class.

Magicycle Ebikes can be divided into three categories: electric mountain bikes, electric folding bikes, and electric road bikes. Once you get your hands on one of Magicycle’s ebikes, we're pretty confident you'll be spending a lot of time on it.

You want the best electric bike for hills, rough terrain, and all-out adventures. You can ride a bike without any ticket, just like any other transportation vehicle.

Both throttle and pedal assist can be a lot of fun, turning daily errands into something to look forward to and opening up the possibilities of outdoor living. The fun factor of eBikes also makes it easy to entice friends and family into getting in on the action.

Hydraulic Suspension Fork

There’s a suspension in the frame or fork, with the 4″tires to give a decently smooth ride no matter the beach path is cratered. Adding a simple suspension seat post might make the ride just a bit nicer, though the saddle is already a nice piece of kit.

Hydraulic Disc Brakes

Tektro 180mm Hydraulic Disc Brakes dissipate heat thoroughly and distribute heat more evenly than traditional mechanical brakes, which means that hydraulic brakes are likely to last longer. This is due to brake fluid that resists heat and compression in a hydraulic brake system. You may find increased safety with hydraulic disc braking systems.

A quick way to tell if an electric bike company cares about the quality of their frames is to look at how messy or clean the welds look. It won't tell you the whole story, but it will let you know if the ebike was cheaply or carelessly manufactured. Some brands are not willing to provide wages adequate to attract the better welders that know how to do it right. Magicycle's gorgeously filleted welds show how much the company cares about getting it right.

This new battery is much easier to remove for charging as it comes out of the center of the frame. For added convenience, there is no need to fold the bike to access the battery.

The Jaguarundi also offers new tires with better performance on the street. Many riders spend the bulk of their riding time on pavement, but these new tires can also take on offroad trails. Looks are important, as well, and these tires are very classy with tan sidewalls. Jaguarundi riders will be getting a lot of second looks from other riders.
