The advantages of an electric bike compared to a conventional bike are obvious:

  • less strenuous
  • further distances possible
  • uphills are easier to cope with
  • quality and intensity of the training is optimised through ideal constant force application
  • avoidance of muscle, ligament and joint injuries due to overuse

What are the disadvantages of e-bikes?

  • battery must be charged in advance
  • according to experience, the range for a pedelec is between 50-100km.
  • battery life is also limited and expensive to purchase
  • much heavier than normal bicycles due to batteries
  • the centre of gravity is slightly offset, it requires an adjustment phase

Most of the disadvantages can be easily circumvented by the numerous rental offers and thus nothing stands in the way of a successful e-bike tour.
