• Volt Pulse X

1. Volt Pulse X

Volt’s hybrid electric bike is the perfect machine if your riding route takes you across the rough stuff as well as the slightly smoother road. It features grippy hybrid tyres and RST front suspension for soaking up the bumps, and you can even remotely lock out the forks when you’re grinding up hills. Not that you’ll need to do that much, thanks to the Pulse’s Bafang Power Motor, which gives you extra torque for getting up any gradient, and you even get a substantial 80 miles of range from the lithium battery.

Price: £1950 I Volt Bikes

The electric bike has evolved over the years from being large and cumbersome to the streamlined speedwheelers you see before you. We've picked the best electric bikes available to buy here in the UK.

No longer seen as the preserve of the lazy, or an inferior mode of transportation, the electric bike has come a long way since its inception. More ebikes are being sold in the UK than ever before and the response to this upsurge in sales is that there is now an astonishing selection of models available, some from major bike manufacturers such as Giant and Raleigh.

We’re not talking just street cruisers either – ebikes now come in all forms, from the hi-tech full suspension mountain bike, to the racey and there’s all sorts inbetween, with new cycling niches popping up all over the place.

While UK law means that no electric motor is capable of assisting a bike to more than 15.5mph, you can pedal using your own steam beyond that. Obviously, if you have a need for speed, you should be looking for an ebike that is as light and sporty as possible. Here's our selection of the best, and most interesting, electric bikes out this year.
