Full suspension electric bikes cater for lots of styles of riding. From your everyday trail mountain biker to a fully blown downhill rider. What defines a 'full suspension' eBike? It's simple, it has suspension at both the front (fork) and rear (shock). Ultimately the bike will soak up the terrain making for an easier, better handling and more comfortable off road bike. Want to learn what defines full suss styles & wheel sizes?
We offer a large selection of full suspension electric mountain bikes, the styles tend to be split into travel, based on the riders requirements. Suspension travel is how much the fork / shock can soak up. Generally speaking; the bigger the travel, the bigger hits the eBike can take:
What are the benefits of a full suspension electric bike?
As mentioned above, a full suspension bike easier to ride because it's doing a lot more of the work soaking up off road terrain, instead of you - the rider, leading to a more comfortable ride and thus you should be able to sustain a longer duration of riding.
Let's not forget that most of our full suss models also have the opportunity to lock the rear shock, effectively turning the bike into a hardtail. Great if you wish to commute in the week, then unlock the rear end ready for some off road fun at the weekend - effectively two bikes in one!
What about wheel sizes?
With lots of options on different wheel sizes, how do you know what will work best for your style of riding? Let's break down wheel sizes into 4 categories and explain a little more about each to help you:
26" FatBike Wheels
Slightly smaller wheels, but the fat bikes are fitted with wider / broader tyres. Designed to cope well with snow, sand, rocks & mud. These also effectively absorb the trails with enhanced grip levels!
The mountain bikers tyre of choice for everyday trail riding, with all manoeuvrability of a 26" but with fast rolling characteristics of a 29". See it as the middle ground, you can't go wrong.
Suited for XC and faster rolling riding, 29" tends to roll faster, cover more ground & go over obstacles easier. With slightly less tight handling in windy sections. Also well suited to taller riders.
The middle ground between standard trail & a fat bike. A wider 27.5" rim fitted with broader 3" tyres for more traction and comfort as the wider / taller tyres run at lower pressures, absorbing terrain.
