How to Choose Electric Bikes for Women?

According to statistics, among electric bike riders in the United States, 59% of them are male while 41% are female. Although there are not as many female riders as there are male riders, the number of female riders keeps increasing year by year.

In the past time, electric bike users were overwhelmingly male. There were only a few women we could see riding ebikes on the road. It is happy to see this situation has been changing as electric bikes do bring everybody lots of benefits concerning our physical and mental health. When it comes to buying electric bikes for women, it could be a little bit difficult because many ebikes can be too heavy and big for women to ride on. Well, don’t worry, below we will guide you through how to choose electric bikes for women.

Bike Frame

Electric bike frames can come in different sizes. They can have a lot of effects on not only the overall performance and functionality but the riding experience of both male and female riders.

As women are different from men in terms of bodies, an appropriate bike frame can make riding more comfortable. Basically, a frame specifically made for women must-have features such as a handlebar of reasonable length and a short top tube for easier bike riders.

Also, for women who typically have less strength, they are supposed to choose a lighter bike frame. There are 2 reasons for that. First, a lighter bike frame allows female riders to better maneuver the ebike itself. They won’t feel like they are always riding on a heavy monster that is out of control. Another reason is that female riders can still do some extreme and challenging moves if their ebikes are lighter.

Battery and Motor

As the two main components of an ebike, the battery, and motor are always at the top of the list. We will talk about them one by one.

Battery: whether you are a male or female rider, you are supposed to choose a battery of large capacity. Nowadays, most electric bikes available in the market are mounted with lithium-ion batteries. They are usually larger and provide higher energy efficiency. Moreover, they are more durable than many other types of ebike batteries.

Of course, we don’t mean to say that a battery of regular range is not of use. That’s up to the needs of the riders. Maybe some women just ride ebikes for running errands or some short trips instead of taking long rides. In this case, a large battery is kind of unnecessary and brings some more cost.

Motor: There are mainly two kinds of motors, hub motor, and mid-drive. Generally, hub motors are located in the center of a wheel and they don’t need much maintenance. This is going to be a huge advantage for those who don’t spend much time on ebike maintenance. Also, ebikes with hub motors usually cost less compared with those with mid-drive motors.

Of course, mid-drive motors have advantages over hub motors. They are more powerful and efficient, which can grant an improved riding experience when it comes to riding off-road. The only little disadvantage is that they can increase the overall cost of an ebike.

From my own perspective, an electric bike for women doesn't have to be demanding in terms of speed and power. Hub motors can fit and be useful for them.

Styles and Geometry

Selecting an electric bike for women doesn’t only concern the performance, but how it looks. The style of an ebike for women must match the performance. The Magicycle Ocelot Pro features a stylish step-thru frame design. Such an ebike comes with matching performance. It is equipped with a 52V 20Ah large lithium-ion battery, providing a long range of 60 - 80 miles. Also, the 750W motor can get riders to tackle any terrain and steep hill.

Safety First

No matter what kind of ebikes you are selecting, safety always comes in the first position, so what makes an electric bike for women safe and reliable? Basically, a safe ebike is always made of high-quality materials. Every component, including the motor and battery, should work normally without getting loose or breaking easily.

Another essential component that makes bike rides much safer is hydraulic disc brakes. They can provide a much more responsive and easier braking experience. The strong braking power will make you stop right immediately even when you are riding downhill fast.

Electric bikes are making our life better and better. It is absolutely worthwhile to take some time to pick up an electric bike for women. The most important thing is that we hope every woman can enjoy the fun of ebikes as much as men do.
