The Best Electric Mountain Bikes - E-MTBs

More and more Mountain Bikers are moving up to E-MTBs. And for good reason. Electric Mountain Bikes are constantly improving with better suspensions, gearing options, and brakes. At the same time, the’re getting lighter. The light weight gives you world class handling, hairpin turning, and downhill capabilities, while the motor and the gears get you back up to the top faster for more miles, more jumps, and more fun.

One of our favorites is the BESV TRS-1 Carbon. First of all, check out the beautiful lines and the paint job. The bike includes a powerful Shimano Steps 8000 motor, Shimano XT components, and Fox shocks. Best of all, it only weighs 43 pounds.

This machine recently won the E-MTB race in the 19-29 age bracket at the Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, California. It beat out all the full-suspension competition.

The TRS-1 is a Type 1 E-MTB, which means that it can go anywhere E-Bikes are allowed.

So where can you put it through its paces? The Evergreen Mountain Bike Association (EMPA) has just published a list and a map of all approved E-MTB trails in Washington. You can find it here.

Come in for a test ride. Pioneer Square and Sodo have some of the worst potholes and highest curbs in the world. Perfect for testing this e-bike. It’s our urban version of the North Cascades.
