Battery innovation has made rapid progress in recent years. Many different areas benefit from this. High-quality tools, smartphones, wearables, cordless vacuum cleaners and charges are part of our lives. But vehicles such as cars and motorcycles now also work with rechargeable batteries. The same applies to bikes, e-bikes are becoming increasingly a trend.
E-bikes are just as diverse as conventional models. There are city bikes, trekking mdels and mountain models. They have complete lighting, disc brakes and derailleur or hub gears. Even models with Bluetooth and application support are no longer uncommon. Different manufacturers ensure a great variety in retail and the pricing could hardly be more different.
We first selected some models and subjected them to a good test. In view of the weather in Europe, the tested e-bikes had to undergo an endurance control, as we tested the various bikes in recent years at temperatures around freezing point. The driving and, above all, the battery life were important to us during the test.
The FISCHER CITA 4.1i was able to assert itself as the greatest model overall in our e-bike comments. Since it is a model with a low entry, women and seniors can also use it to do their shopping without any problems or, above all, to be out and about in the city area. To increase comfort in urban cycling, the bicycle is equipped with a suspension fork and a suspension seat post. The 70 lux LED headlight ensures great illumination and visibility in crowd, as we found out in our control. The delivery already proved to be advantageous. Because the pedelec was delivered fully assembled, so no assembly was necessary.
In the test of the e-bikes, of course, a folding one should not be missing. While there were contemporaries who described a folding bike as an incomplete bicycle, the manufacturer refutes this with a wide range of high-quality folding models. The picture was pleasing as soon as the electric folding model arrived. Because the model arrives completely assembled and only needs to be unpacked and folded up. Then set up the handlebars and done. It is also immediately noticeable that the company relies on high-quality and robust individual parts for its folding bike. Visually, the myvélo is outstanding because it cannot be identified as an e-bike because the battery is in the seat post.
With the Eskute Polluno, we checked a city e-bike that is suitable for both women and men. Our controls quickly made it clear that it is a good e-bike for going shopping. But even longer distances can be covered with the bike without any problems. Like all other models, we also used this e-bike in weather around freezing point. The battery and the 250 watt motor gave us support for up to 75 km. The Eskute Polluno was one of the surprises in the test. In particular, the strong battery, the comparatively short charging time and the good ride comfort convinced us in the test of this e bike. The high load capacity and the approval for road also make the bike a definite recommendation. However, inexperienced beginners should get help from an experienced cyclist when assembling this model.
