What Are the Best Step-Thru Electric Bikes in 2023?

Step-thru e-bikes are becoming more and more popular among e-bike enthusiasts. Is there anything wrong with preferring a step-over style? Absolutely not! Some riders just like the looks of a step-over bike, and some riders are so tall that they feel more comfortable on a step-over bike. Others feel that a step-over frame is sturdier, although that's not a big factor these days. Manufacturers compensate for the lack of a top tube by using sturdier metal for the tubes on a step-thru e-bike.

There are also riders who like the looks of the step-thru bike frames, but many fans prefer a step-thru e-bike for the advantages they offer. It's no secret that 26" fat tire e-bikes stand tall as compared to their cousins with smaller wheels. Even people of average height may find it challenging to swing a leg over a conventional step-over model.

Step-over bikes definitely live up to their name, as it is necessary to swing a leg completely over the back of the bike in order to mount the seat. Certainly mounting a step-thru e-bike is easier and more convenient for almost everyone. Mounting the step-thru is a simple matter of lifting one leg just enough to literally step through the frame. For people of shorter than average height, a step-thru e-bike style is more than just convenient...it is almost essential for safety in mounting and dismounting.

For people with various physical challenges that make biking difficult, step-thru e-bikes are making it possible to return to biking. Even older senior adults are re-discovering the joy of bike riding. The pedal assist aspect of e-bikes is making life more enjoyable for thousands of those who thought they would never ride a bike again. In addition to the motor, the availability of step-thru e-bikes is very important. Simply put, it is just much easier to get on and off a step-thru e-bike.

Older adults will easily recall that bikes with step-thru frames were originally designed for girls and women, to accommodate their clothing. My, how things have changed! Step-thru e-bikes are certainly no longer thought of as women's bikes -- in fact, the majority are purchased by men. But even though it may seem somewhat "old school," there are times when a woman wants to wear a dress. There may even be occasions when a dress or a skirt is required. Just as in years gone by, it is still true that women's dresses are best accommodated by the step-thru e-bike style.

Jaguarundi Folding Step-Thru

Folding fat tire electric bikes

This folding easy-to-store bike is a superb addition to the Magicyle line...the Jaguarundi Folding Step-Thru. This beautiful step-thru e-bike is the ultimate in convenience. With its small form factor and folding capability, almost anyone has room for this Magicycle.

Indeed, the new Magicycle Jaguarundi Folding Step-Thru is the model that many riders will think of as the most user-friendly ride produced to date by Magicycle. It is a fun, powerful, and compact electric bike that can take you to work or the local park—and it can get you there on pavement or trail with comfort.

Fat tire e-bikes are great fun to ride on all types of terrain, but their sheer size often makes them difficult to transport on a bike rack. Folding fat tire bikes are less common than more traditional frames, but they conveniently open the door to new possibilities. For example, you might need to toss your fat tire e-bike into the trunk or rear seat of your car. Even within your home, you might choose to fold it into a compact rectangle that fits nicely in a corner of the room. Or perhaps just fold down the handlebars to let the Jaguarundi rest neatly against a wall.

For city riders who don’t need to transport their bikes in a car, the ability to fold means it takes up less space in the home, perhaps fitting in a corner or under a desk.

Ocelot Pro Step-Thru E-bike

Many requests have been received for a Magicycle Cruiser that is more easily ridden by e-bikers as small as 4’10’ and yet also comfortable for riders up to 6’2”. The MAGiCYCLE Design Team has worked long and hard to perfectly meet the demand for such a bike. The introduction of the 20” Magicycle Ocelot Pro Cruiser is bringing fresh excitement to e-bike enthusiasts.

If you’ve dreamed of a smaller, stylish, quality cruiser that retains both power and comfort, this is it. The Ocelot has a laid-back beach cruiser styling…nimble, beautiful, and comfortable. For riders uncomfortable with the big 26” cruisers, the Ocelot opens up a whole new world of cruising comfort. This model is also available as a step-over, but today we are featuring the Magicycle step-thru e-bikes.

Ocelot riders get all the advantages of step-through styling, and they love the 1100 peak watts' That amazing power is energized by the long-range 52 volts 20 amp battery. This one is a true step-thru design with 20″ fat tires…very convenient and comfortable for nearly all riders.

Full Suspension All-Round Step-Thru E-bike

The latest brand-new fat tire step-thru e-bike from Magicycle is creating quite a stir of interest. This beautiful new ride is known as the Magicycle Deer Ebike SUV.  Ebike SUV bikes are relatively new to the e-bike market and are a combination of cruiser comfort and EMTB off-road capability.

Most manufacturers of ESUVs are not providing a step-thru model, so this ultra-convenient frame style is difficult to find among ESUVs. Off-road adventures are sometimes thought of as an activity reserved for the young and strong, but that is not actually the case. Magicycle feels that almost anyone can enjoy owning a fat tire step-thru e-bike that can take you down city streets or up a mountain trail with equal ease and comfort -- and this includes riders of all sizes. This makes the step-thru design very significant...a convenient fat tire e-bike that can take you just about anywhere, on road or off.

Reliable and Economical Transportation

Fuel prices dropped for a few weeks, and now they seem to be headed upward again. Even at the recent lowest price, everyone agrees that prices are too high. The average American has expenses of more than $15,000 annually just for commuting to work, routine driving, and perhaps an occasional leisure trip. When you add a Magicycle Deer fat tire e-bike to your life, you can give yourself a very nice discount on the cost of getting from Point A to Point B.

You'll love commuting to work worry-free or running routine errands for mere pennies in energy expense. You know you’ll get there on time and you’ll do it for a mere fraction of the cost involved with an automobile…or even public transportation. In fact, you could easily save more than $400 monthly compared to automobile gas or diesel expenses. It doesn't require a math whiz to quickly see that your monthly transportation savings could easily cover the payment on your shiny new Deer ESUV bike.

It's true -- the Deer is a fat tire e-bike that most will think of as eye candy, but it is so much more! This ESUV has all the power you'll need to tackle the steep hills, city streets, and off-road trails, plus the convenience and comfort of a step-thru electric bike. (Also available as a stepover.)

It's unfortunately not unusual to find fat tire electric bike brands that provide a decent frame, but then "go cheap" on outfitting the frame for riding. Not Magicycle! Like all Magicycle fat tire e-bikes, the Deer ESUV is equipped with quality components. For example, the original Magicycle Cruiser has a strong and reliable brand-name motor, and it would be simple for the Magicycle Design Team to just copy that motor and use it for the Deer. Rather than go the easy and cheap route, they have given the Deer an upgraded motor that is even more reliable. It provides everything a good ESUV needs. With 1100 peak watts and a ton of torque, Deer riders are the king of the hill!

To accompany all that power from the Deer, riders also get an amazing amount of torque. After all, the Magicycle Deer is a full-suspension fat tire e-bike intended for riding on any terrain, including tough and steep trails. To accomplish this, it absolutely must have a motor that delivers excellent torque. The Magicycle Deer's motor is meticulously engineered to produce industry-leading torque — 96.8 Neuton meters! You won't find many e-bikes that can give you that kind of torque. In fact, the Magicycle Deer has about the same torque as an 800cc motorcycle!

Enjoy the Quality of a Magicycle Step-Thru E-bike

Remember, MAGiCYCLE is not just an average e-bike company. MAGiCYCLE owns the factory, and that factory has been producing quality e-bikes for more than 16 years. Believe it or not, most e-bike brands do not own a factory. Every Magicycle begins with the award-winning Magicycle Design Team, originators of the amazing frame design that makes their e-bikes both visually appealing and reliably strong.

No matter which model you select, you’ll be very glad you decided on MAGiCYCLE!

Magicycle Deer Ebike SUV is now available at only $2,600. Now you can use the code FH300 to get $300 off. Limited Offer, come check out and grab one.
