E-Bikes have been growing in popularity these past few years, to nobody’s surprise. With the benefits that they offer, you can’t blame the many people who want to give e-bikes a spin—literally!

If you’re still at a crossroads when it comes to purchasing your first e-bike, read on as Espin shares with you some of the reasons why you should get one:

It Can Help You Ride Faster and Longer

One of the best things about electric bikes is that it gives you the same advantages of a regular bike and then some. With an e-bike, you are able to pedal for more extended periods and distances because you don’t have to exert as much effort.

It Can Help You Reach Your Fitness Goals

Contrary to what many people think, e-bikes can actually help you achieve your fitness goals, mainly because you’re more comfortable and you’ll find yourself riding more often and riding longer distances. It’s also ideal for older people who still want to pedal but can’t do it with a traditional bike that requires more strength and power.

It Can Help Save You Some Cash in the Long Run

You can get an affordable electric bike, but even if you shell out more for a more sophisticated model, you’d still be saving money in the long run. After all, you won’t have to top up the gas or pay for public transportation every day when you need to go to work or just go around town. Also, don’t listen to anyone telling you it’s going to run your electric bills through the roof because recharging your e-bike’s battery won’t add that much to your utilities.

It’s a Good Choice for Commuting

Besides saving you a lot of money, opting for an electric bike will save you the trouble of dealing with the daily traffic. There’s no need to get frustrated as you sit in your car and wait for the heavy traffic to subside. You also don’t have to come to work sweating because the bus was loaded. No matter how you commuted before, pedaling and enjoying the cool wind is undoubtedly the better way to get wherever you need to be.

It Can Deal With Crosswinds and Headwinds Better

One of the things that cyclists get frustrated with is the wind. With an e-bike, you wouldn’t have to worry about that because the electric bike’s motor will give it power so you can withstand the wind when they’re trying to push you from the front or the sides.

It Can Take you Through the Forest and the City Streets

There are some amazing e-bikes out there like Espin’s 21 Nero that is perfect for any terrain and can take you anywhere, from your busy streets in the city to the rugged wilderness.


An e-bike shares a lot of characteristics with a regular bike, and that’s good, but it’s when you engage that motor that you’ll see and feel a enormous difference. From how efficient e-bikes are with uphill rides to their ability to withstand the wind, their flexibility, and so much more, there’s more than enough reasons to get yourself or your loved one an e-bike now.

Whether you need a foldable e-bike that you can take with you during your travels or you’re looking for something that would allow you to navigate the urban jungle every day, Espin has the perfect electric bike for you. Check out our collection today!
