This wiki has been updated 9 times since it was first published in October of 2017. If you've made a habit of hitting the trails on two wheels, you know how hard some of that terrain is to traverse. With an electric mountain bike, you can combine your muscle power with that of a rechargeable battery to either give you a welcome assist on those steep inclines or help you reach thrilling speeds. They can be operated 100% manually, too, so they are great for eco-friendly commuting. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

October 16, 2018:

Replaced several models because of availability concerns. Bumped the Cyrusher Fat Tire XF660 from #1 spot to #2 after finding the Addmotor Motan M-5800, a marvelous beast of a bike. Updated the Addmotor Motan M-550 with the newer model, the M-560. Removed models that function better as street bikes than they would in off-roading environments.

Daniel Imperiale holds a bachelor’s degree in writing, and proudly fled his graduate program in poetry to pursue a quiet life at a remote Alaskan fishery. After returning to the contiguous states, he took up a position as an editor and photographer of the prestigious geek culture magazine “Unwinnable” before turning his attention to the field of health and wellness. In recent years, he has worked extensively in film and music production, making him something of a know-it-all when it comes to camera equipment, musical instruments, recording devices, and other audio-visual hardware. Daniel’s recent obsessions include horology (making him a pro when it comes to all things timekeeping) and Uranium mining and enrichment (which hasn’t proven useful just yet).
