Hard Tail electric bikes are highly versatile machines, easily able to cope with continually changing terrain.

Whether riding around the local woods, trail centres or just to the shops, a hardtail electric bike will take it all in its stride. Offered in a variety of different frame styles to suit a mixture of riders and their frame styles.

Hard tail bikes are defined by having suspension at the front and a rigid frame at the rear (hard tail). Built with mountain bike off road / hybrid tyres they are suitable for lot's of applications.

E-bikeshop are the largest UK supplier for European manufactured crank drive electric bikes built for power, range, and an overall natural and enjoyable ride with a strong focus on reliability.

We’ve worked with and sold many of the top brands of hard tail electric bikes over the last decade, but have hand picked Cube for their unbeatable value, Orbea for their incredible attention to detail and hand built quality, Haibike for their incredible German reliability and aggressive styling along with Scott for their continually forward thinking design.

Scott Hard Tail E-Bikes

Scott bikes offer the Scott Aspect in their hard tail range featuring the mighty Bosch system & a lightweight alloy frame. Learn more about Scott eBikes.

Hard tails are good for riding on light off road terrain. Some prefer the handling characteristics of a hard tail bike as it's rigid and you can feel the trail more underneath you. Whilst some prefer to use a full suspension bike for a more comfortable ride.

Let's not forget that a hard tail can easily be used on the road too. Ideal for someone who wishes to commute in the week and also hit some trails at the weekend. Although not specified, we can also fit mudguards, racks and lights to a hard tail as an effective; more stylish looking commuter. Larger 700c or 29" wheeled bikes tend to be better suited for this.

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 3 categories and explain a little more about each to help you:

24" Wheels

This wheel size is only featured on our kids hard tail eBikes. It's great for smaller riders as its close to the size of adults bikes giving a great ride, but it's stll easily maneuverable for fun in the woods!

27" Wheels

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.

29" Wheels

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.

"Handles well and it's not the flattest of places and did a 28 mile gravel trip with a lot of climbing so used the assist a lot on all settings and dropped to two bars. Customer service from the team at E-Bike shop is the best I've ever experienced so if any suppliers want to know how to do it right then ask these guys!"
