There’s just nothing quite like hitting a mountain trail on a cool, crisp morning. The birds chirping, a little kiss of cold hanging in the air as you make your way across the switchbacks, the kind of thing that keeps mountain bike enthusiasts coming back. But when you need a little extra help getting over rocky mountain terrain, a full suspension electric mountain bike comes in handy.

At Go Ride Bikes, we’re bike lovers of all kinds! Whether it’s electric mountain bikes or road cruisers, we’re just happy to be out on two wheels enjoying the wind on our helmet.

If you’re in the market for full suspension electric mountain bikes, take a read through some of our top picks on the market.

What is a full suspension electric mountain bike?

Most electric bikes have at least one suspension, either at the front or the rear, but a full suspension electric bike has both. Full suspension electric mountain bikes are fantastic options for climbing further and faster across rough or rocky terrain. And if you’re into hunting, check out our reviews on electric hunting bikes.

Some key benefits of a full spectrum electric mountain bike include:

  • Improved comfort on the trails
  • Greater traction
  • Heightened gripping ability
  • More control, so better suited for an easier ride
  • Versatility in riding style
  • Reduced fatigue from pedal assist
  • Protection of key components with dual suspension

Experienced and new mountain bikers alike will love riding over mountains on a full suspension electric bike.

GRB’s Top Full Suspension Electric Mountain Bikes

1. Luna X2 Enduro Ebike

An improvement on their revolutionary X1 bike, the Luna X2 Enduro Ebike is truly one fun spin around the mountainside. It has a huge battery capable of hitting 2500W (watch out for overheating, though), but the best part of this bike is its design. The full suspension with front and rear shocks makes for a super smooth ride, and carbon fiber frame and MAXXIS Minion tires make it much lighter than many of its contemporaries.

2. Specialized Turbo Tero 3.0

Max Speed: 20 MPH
Motor: Specialized 2.0E, 50 Nm torque, custom tuned motor, 250W nominal

Trek is one of the biggest names in the analog mountain bike world, so you know when they put their name on an electric bike it’s going to rip the trails. And Trek didn’t mess around with their electronic components either, going for the big dogs in Bosch and adding in the Bosch PowerTube 500Wh battery alongside the Bosch Performance CX electric motor. No matter where you need to roam, the Rail 5 will get you there comfortably and in style.

Max Speed: 20 MPH
Motor: Canbus Bafang M600 Mid-Drive

All of the bikes on this list feature dual suspensions, but the focus on the rear suspension of the Monte Capro Lite from Biktrix sets it apart. This is actually a downgraded version of the more popular Monte Capro, but it features all the great high-quality components of its big brother at a more affordable price. The Bafang Mid-Drive motor and modern rear suspension will have you flying over the hills and rocks.

Stability stability stability. That’s the name of the game for the VoltBike Enduro, one of the most stable and functional full suspension systems I’ve had the pleasure to ride. It’s a smart choice for all kinds of riding because of that, whether you’re hitting potholes in the city or climbing over trees in the forest.
