Electric bike’s serve a lot of purposes. They’re a means for escape and exercise or even a reliable mode of transportation. What they aren’t, however, is one-size-fits-all. Not all electric bikes are for everyone, and there’s some key differences between a men’s and women’s electric bike. Of course, you can also join forces and purchase a tandem.

At Go Ride Bikes, we’re all about promoting electric bicycles for everyone, regardless of gender, age, or even fitness level. We also understand not everyone is as obsessed with electric bikes as us, and they could use a sizing guide to find the best bike for their needs.

Read on to learn more about choosing a women’s electric bike in 2024. Also visit this blog to learn about choosing a men’s electric bike.

Finding the right women’s electric bike

Alright so you’re ready to hit the open road, but now you’re faced with a ton of choices. Do I need a commuter bike or a beach cruiser? Is an  electric mountain bike an option or do those have a required height?

Never fear, GRB is here! We’ve got answers to all your burning questions in this guide to finding the right bike fit for you.

Keep it fit

I promise, we’re not talking about your waistline here. In the biking world, we talk a lot about the right “fit” for the rider. Just like any other piece of equipment, someone 5-foot-1 will have to operate something different than someone pushing 6 feet. 

Women come in all shapes and sizes, and so do women’s electric bikes. That’s why test riding is a crucial part of shopping for an electric bicycle, so you can ensure everything functions as you ride.

Inclusivity

If a bike doesn’t specifically state that it’s a unisex bike or made for women, it’s safe to assume the design was made for a male rider. Inclusivity in design isn’t always the default, and it’s important to find an electric bike that specifically calls out it’s inclusive design. Shorter riders, taller riders, a diverse userbase will ensure your bike can meet your needs.

Characteristics to seek

Here’s a few more characteristics of women’s electric bikes to keep in mind:

  • Step-through frame: A step-through frame (aka step thru electric bike) is made specifically for easy rider access. The frame is sloped downward, making it simple to swing your legs while mounting or dismounting your bike.
  • Riding position: The main difference in bike styles is how the rider sits, so look for an electric bike that matches your style (i.e. comfortable, aerodynamic, etc.).
  • Adjustable components: Even if you find a bike with the right fit, the seat might not be the right height initially. Or you may want to move your handlebar down a tad. A bike with adjustable components lets you fit the machine to your needs.
  • Lightweight construction: Who wants to lug a heavy bike up and down stairs? A lightweight frame, or even a folding electric bike, is a great option those needing to carry their bike like it carries them.
  • User-friendly controls: We’re talking electricity here, and many electric bikes have great bike accessories that tie into your smartphone. Anything from GPS navigation to heart monitoring and more can be controlled right from your handlebar.

Alright, we’ve talked your ear off enough, it’s now time to get into the list!

Types of electric bikes

There’s a bunch of different types of electric bike options out there. Here’s a quick breakdown of some of the most popular:

Fat tire electric bike

The name of these bikes is incredibly descriptive, they have oversized tires that provide a ton of different benefits. Fat tires can make your ride smoother on pavement and gravel, and they can give you more traction for some true off-road exploring.

Electric mountain bike

Live out your BMX dreams with an electric mountain bike! A familiar design and built to climb any hill you approach, these e-bikes are even great options for hunting and camping because of their towing capabilities.

Folding electric bike

Convenience meets mobility with a folding electric bike. Hit the road, then fold your bike up for nice, easy storage when you reach your destination.

Electric road bike

For those looking for a little extra speed on their ride, an electric road bike is built aerodynamically like the racing road bikes without motors.

Step through ebike

This refers to the frame, where a step through ebike has a lower frame that is easier to step through when mounting.
