Best Electric Mountain Bikes in 2021 Reviewed

The history of electric bicycles goes back further than most would expect. Way back in the late 1800s, American inventor Ogden Bolton Jr patented a battery-powered bicycle with a hub motor on the rear wheel. This early invention and other similar ones were often slow, clunky, and didn’t include any gears.

Only toward the end of the 1900s did modern components like torque sensors and power controls begin appearing on electric bikes. Around the same time, ‘e-bikes’ began gaining popularity in the Far East when the first pedal-assist electric bike was manufactured in Japan.

By 2007, e-bikes had become a common sight on the streets of major Chinese cities and slowly began finding more favor in the West. Since 2013, sales of e-bikes in Europe have more than doubled to the point that many manufacturers struggle to meet demand.

Rocky Mountains Under Blue Sky

Electric mountain bikes offer a great deal of freedom to explore various terrains. Some even say that e-mountain bikes have introduced a new era of riders who didn’t see the appeal of it before.


Speed and range
Modern e-bikes use high-torque motors to reach speeds of up to 28 mph (45kph) and long-range batteries that will go up to 250 miles (400km) on a single charge. However, more common pedal-assist bikes usually only go about 12 mph (20kph) and cover about 62 miles (100km) on a single charge.

Types
E-bikes fall into two categories – pedal-assist and power-on-demand. As the name suggests, pedal-assist e-bikes require you to pedal for operation, whereas power-on-demand bikes can be controlled from a handlebar-mounted accelerator. In some cases, an e-bike will have both pedal-assistance and a handlebar-mounted controller.

Cost
Electric bicycles tend to cost a bit more than standard bicycles but you can still find a few decent ones for under $1,000 on Amazon. An average price for an electric bike tends to stay in the $4,000 – $6,000 range. The most expensive e-bikes are usually pro-level carbon fiber mountain bikes that would cost a lot even without the extra motor and battery. Prices range from as low as $600 to over $13,000.

MSRP $13,099 Competitive Cyclist

The Santa Cruz Heckler could quite possibly be the best electric mountain bike in the world! The eye-watering price tag will have some questioning if they’ve read it correctly but rest assured – this bike cuts no corners when it comes to quality. It’s packed from head to toe with the absolute best of the best, from the full carbon frame to the top-of-the-range SRAM drivetrain.

Surprisingly light for an e-MTB, it offers super-smooth gear changes and ultra-responsive suspension. From the Di2 carbon handlebar to the Hollowtech cranks, each component is specially selected for its high strength and lightweight attributes. It’s truly a work of art. The only negative we could find about this bike is how long you’ll have to save to buy one. Sure, you may need to take out a second mortgage but hey – it’ll be worth it!

Carbon / 12-speed / 29″ x 2.6″ / 85Nm / Range – Up to 63 miles / 20mp/h

MSRP $7,750 REI

Built to take on all kinds of mountainous terrain, this Cannondale carbon fiber electric mountain bike is a trail-blazing beast that’s ready for adventure. Considering the wealth of high-quality components on the Moterra Neo Carbon 2, it definitely resides at the top shelf of eBikes. A Ballistec Carbon frame with full suspension and a quality SRAM GX Eagle groupset makes this an excellent MTB in its own right. Add a powerful motor and long-range battery pack and you have a killer electric MTB that can easily compete with the best.

The head tube angle on the Moterra Neo is quite slack, which gives you better stability going downhill but a bit less power on long flats or uphills. However, large 29” tires (27.5″ on size Small) help to keep it rolling smoothly over those long uphill climbs. It’s the perfect electric mountain bike for hilly, undulating terrain with a lot of technical downhill sections.

The second-best e-MTB by Cannondale!

Unlike the alloy Moterra series, Neo Carbon is updated in every single department – from suspension, brakes, and obviously the motor.

  • SRAM NX Eagle Shifters

Urban / light trail

Aluminum / 7-speed / 26×4″ / 80Nm 25-45+ miles range / Weight: 69 lbs

RadRover is more of an urban fat-tire bike compared to most other mountain bikes on this list. Although this model is not built on a full-suspension electric bike frame, it still offers plenty of freedom in terms of choosing your trails. Matter of fact, the RadRover is pretty much the only eBike in this list that could conquer sandy or snowy trails with ease. 4″ wide tires are more than enough to use it on beaches, snowy, or muddy trails.

7. Diamondback – Response

An electric hardtail by Diamondback

Diamondback - Response e-Bike - Blue

MSRP $4,100 Backcountry

Diamondback mountain bikes don’t need much introduction as they have been one of the best-selling brands among US-buyers.

The brand has now released their first electric hardtail mountain bike – the Response e-Bike. Based on the classical 27.5″ Response – The bike does not differ much from a regular mountain bike as it’s got a 120mm front fork, an aluminum frame, and the total weight is nothing over the top.

The Response E-Bike Rocks a 350Wh motor with a 500Wh battery, 27.5x45mm wheels. Their mid-drive Bosch motor puts out 85Nm which is quite a lot!

Is it worth the 4k price tag? It sure is. There aren’t too many hardtail MTBs around, and this is a great entry bike for a large range of recreational mountain bikers who want a known brand.

8. Trek – Powerfly 4 2021′

Trek bikes can be bought in-store only!

 trek electric mountain bike

Trail

Aluminum / 10-speed / XS,S 27.5×2.35″ – M-XL 29×2.3″ / 75Nm 20mp/h / Range: 60-90mi / Weight: 52 lbs

MSRP $3,700 Trekbikes

As the most affordable Trek electric mountain bike in this range, the Powerfly 4 looks and feels like it should cost a lot more than it does. The fully-integrated battery fits seamlessly into the frame giving a clean and professional-looking finish, while the powerful motor makes short work of steep uphill scrambles over loose, rocky surfaces.

Trek has managed to keep costs down by using a cheaper fork and brakes with standard Bontrager tires but injects some extra quality flowing with a high-quality drivetrain. Sure, it might not be a professional-level MTB but only the most discerning cyclists will notice the difference. For some exciting weekend fun in the mountains, you’ll struggle to find anything better at this price. There are models for both men and women.

  • Derailleur: Shimano Deore
  • Tektro HD-M265 hydraulic disc brakes, 203mm rotors

Hardtail e-MTB

womens electric mountain bike

Trail, All-mountain

Aluminum / 8-speed / 27.5×2.8″ / 70Nm  20mp/h / Weight: 48 lbs

MSRP $4,400 JensonUSA

The Marin Nail Trail is a hardtail electric mountain bike with medium to high-quality components and some impressive features. The battery isn’t as well concealed as we would like but the lightweight aluminum frame has a nimble, playful feel that carries the extra motor and battery weight well.

One of the few hardtail mountain eBikes

The dedicated electric SRAM drivetrain is a nice touch that we are starting to see on more bikes these days. It integrates very well with the motor to overcome some issues that older electric mountain bikes struggled with, resulting in a smoother, natural feel when cycling. Coupled with an excellent front fork and strong brakes it offers an impressive all-round package at a decent price.

  • Derailleur: SRAM EX1
  • Fork: RockShox Revelation RC, 140mm travel
  • Dropper post: X-Manic, 120-150mm travel
  • Shimano BR-MT520 hydraulic disc brakes, 203mm rotors

13. Scott – Strike eRIDE 930

Scott - Strike eRIDE 930 E-Mountain Bike 2021

Aluminum / 29×2.6″ / 12-speed / 140mm travel

MSRP $4,500 evo

This electric MTB from Scott combines an aluminum frame and advanced suspension with a powerful motor so that you can hit the trails all day long. The TwinLoc suspension system means you can easily flip between three levels of rear travel from a convenient handlebar-mounted remote control. It’s supported by an X-Fusion NUDE shock and an adjustable Marzocchi Z2 air fork up front.

The drivetrain is a fairly basic SRAM SX Eagle, but it’s powered by a Bosch Performance CX Gen4 drive unit that pumps out a maximum of 75Nm of torque. The integrated PowerTube 625Wh battery will provide hours of pedal-assistance, but if it’s not enough, simply add another battery to the Range Extender mount. 

Electric bikes are still a contentious topic in the MTB scene, with the added weight of the motor and battery resulting in a very different cycling experience. However, Scott does an excellent job here of balancing out the eRIDE to provide a realistic feel on the downhills and a smooth, comfortable ride on the uphills.

FAQ

What is the best electric mountain bike?

The best mountain eBike is the one that fits your budget and has the right geometry and level of components for your riding needs. Mountain biking has many different disciplines, but all of the bikes here are fully ready to hit the trails, to say the least. We are not big fans of the supermarket nor the Walmart electric mountain bikes, like mountain biking, in general, is something where you really wouldn’t want to cut corners in terms of your own safety!

 

Is an electric mountain bike worth it?

These days, electric mountain bikes are gaining mainstream appeal, making them more affordable and more widely accepted. In particular, older riders or cyclists with injuries are able to enjoy cycling again with electric bikes. Furthermore, they can save a lot of time and energy going up a mountain. If you wish to dedicate more time to enjoy the fast-paced, downhill sections of a mountain you’ll find an e-MTB to be an invaluable resource.

 

Is it safe to ride an electric mountain bike?

With speeds seldom breaching the 28mp/h mark, electric mountain bikes don’t pose any more risk than a standard bike. In most cases, the small motors only provide minor assistance and aren’t powerful enough to cause any real danger on the roads. So long as you familiarize yourself with the controls, use a helmet, and follow proper traffic laws, you should be as safe as you would be on a normal bike.

Customer Reviews

How fast does an electric bike can go?

The fastest stock electric mountain bikes can reach up to 28 mph (45km/h) but most don’t go above 20 mph (32km/h) on flat terrain. In many cases, a fit cyclist will be able to outpace the motor just by pedaling alone, so you can go as fast as you would on a normal bike. Electric bike motors are more focused on providing pedal assistance to save on energy rather than achieving high speeds.

 

Are motorized bikes worth it?

Electric bikes offer a great alternative to traditional bicycles, and the trend nor the demand hasn’t seen a decrease so far. The affordability of electric bikes has improved well over the past 5 years, but there’s still a lot of time before we could say that about electric-assist mountain bikes. It’s just that mountain bikes in general tend to cost more due to their stronger component being used! motor-assisted bikes are the future!

 

Full-suspension electric mountain bike vs hardtail eMTB?

There’s no question that full-suspension mountain bikes offer better comfort, while there are a variety of hardtail models available as well. As the bikes are already assisted by electric motors, it is way more convenient to climb with a full-suspension mountain bike, while on the other hand in some cases should the battery run out, it is way easier to pedal with a hardtail mountain bike.

 

Can electric bikes go up steep hills?

Almost all electric bikes will be able to climb steep hills but usually, you will still need to provide some pedal assistance. Only Specialized e-bikes in a class similar to that of light motorbikes will be able to climb steep hills on their engine power alone. The higher the torque of the motor, the less amount of effort you will need to exert when pedaling uphill. Also note that the more uphills you do, the quicker the battery will run out.

 

How durable are electric bikes?

Electric bikes have come a long way in the past decade and nowadays you can get excellent products that will last years without trouble. However, the growing popularity of electric bikes has also spurned many cheap manufacturers. Some cyclists who have purchased lower quality electric bikes complain of motor failures and short battery life so it’s best to go with mid to high-quality products.

As there are higher torque and weight to be thrown around the trails, components on electric bikes are made of stronger and more durable materials.

 

How heavy are electric mountain bikes?

An average electric mountain bike weighs around 50-70 lbs, with a max capacity of 300 lbs for the rider.

 

Mid-drive or hub drive?

Related: Mid-drive vs Hub motor

Most of the bikes reviewed in this article use a mid-drive motor, which is generally used on higher-end e-bikes. Although, many expensive off road electric mountain bikes such as the Quietkat Jeep uses a hub-drive motors which is suitable for steep climbs and towing extra luggage.

Derailleur / Internal gearing?

Although there are already electronic shifters and derailleurs on the market, we haven’t noticed the internal-geared electric mountain to review.

 

Chain vs Belt

Electric mountain bikes all come with a specific e-bike chain and a derailleur system, where there’s a single cog in the front. Although there are considerable benefits to belt-drive bikes, unfortunately, we haven’t seen belts being used in the electric mountain bike industry so far.

 

How much to pay for an electric mountain bike?

The lowest electric bikes by known brands start out as $999 (RadMission), and a complete entry-level mountain bike start out as low as $500.

There are electric mountain bikes starting out from $900 on Amazon, but we wouldn’t really recommend anything below $2,000 for a hardtail electric mountain bike. If you are planning to use the bike on demanding trials, you’d want to look into the $3,000+ price range since that’s where the mid-range non-electric full-suspension mountain bikes start to get around.

Again, there are also folding electric fat tire mountain bikes on the market with a three-digit price tag, but if you’d ask from as – we believe that folding- and mountain bikes don’t get together as well.


In conclusion – there is no other feeling like passing a road cyclists on a steep hill, while seated on a heavy full-suspension electric MTB

    So why isn’t the Trek Rail 9 not on the list. IMO it is defiantly on par with any of your top rated bikes. Has all top of the line components and in my experience it rides as the name implies like on a rail.

  2. Dalton Bourne says:

    This Evoc Bike Travel Bag l is sure to meet your demands if you’re looking for a bike travel bag. After removing the seat post, pedals, front and rear tires, and handlebars, my bike fit perfectly within.
    The rigid inserts in the outer pockets (one on each side of the bag) protect the wheels, while the fiberglass inserts protect the front and back of the bike carrier.

  3. Vincent Marino says:

    Thoughts on Ducati`s mountain ebike by Thok? The TK01 RR with Ohlin’s suspension looks solid.

  4. Barry Plato says:

    Any comments or thoughts on a bike from CyberBike called the Frisco?
    I’m going to look at one next week. New for $2100.
    Thanks you.

    1. Sam Millers says:

      Hi Barry. The Frisco seems like a cool bike for light trails and commuting. The air forks and full-suspension set-up is a decent deal at such a low price. Also the hydro brakes, mid-drive motor and a relatively low weight at 54lbs it has some great specs indeed. But, as the Frisco is a Class 4 eBike with a max-assisted speed of 34mp/h, some states require you to have drivers license, a helmet and a license place so make sure to ask about it as well!

  5. reyhan says:

    Thanks a lot, good information.

  6. Steven Dumain says:

    Hey there…i called RideUp and they say the Prodigy is definitely not a mountain bike….Which disappointed me. Wanted to let you know. Do you have any feedback tk me that I could use it for some light mountain biking?

    1. Sam Millers says:

      Hi Steven

      The Prodigy’s first sentence on Ride1Up’s page goes like this “A master of the trails at just under 50lbs.”
      The Prodigy rocks a front suspension fork, MTB geometry, and 27.5×2.0″ knobby tires – if it’s not categorized as a mountain bike, then what it is? 🙂

  7. Charlie good says:

    The weight of the mountain bike and the length of ride that you get from one charge are really important to me.your reviews are very helpful,in determining what I want to buy. Thankyou
