WHO ARE THEY FOR?
Everyone! People ride and exercise based on their personality so everyone has their own reasons for riding. You don’t have to break a sweat if you don’t want to whilst riding an e-bike although if you ask most e-bike owners if they feel fitter, happier and healthier since buying their e-bike, most will answer yes as a consequence of spending more time in our great outdoors.
DO THEY CONTRIBUTE TOWARDS A GREENER LIFESTYLE?
With over 92% of UK population expected to be living in urban areas by 2030 the environment will be put under huge pressure. With the likes of ex Olympian Chris Boardman, recently appointed as Greater Manchester’s Cycling Commissioner we are committed to improving public infrastructure.
E-bikes are between 13 and 18 times more energy efficient than a car and 6 times more efficient than rail. By ditching your carbon-intensive car for city journeys, you will be doing your bit to clean up the environment.
WHY DO E-BIKES AFFECT YOUR LIFE SO POSITIVELY?
As cheesy and cliché as it may sound, Electric bikes can be considered as a genuine, life transforming product. Not only will your lifestyle become more active with regular use, but you will also benefit from a fun, sustainable and cost effective transport option.
ARE THEY EASY TO USE?
Yes, all of our e-bikes feature a pedal assist system (power is applied as you turn the pedals) so they deliver a much greater natural riding feel and improved hill climb performance. A sensor distributes power in relation to the pressure you apply so you won’t have to worry about backing off power prior to a sharp corner or think about holding a throttle open. This is much safer and put simply if you stop pedalling, zero power will be applied.
ARE E-BIKES EASY TO MAINTAIN?
Yes! Other than topping up the charge on our Lithium batteries, you can use your e-bike in the rain and treat it the same as any standard bicycle. You can find cleaning and maintenance advice on the Forme Bikes website and via a specialist Forme e-bike retailer.
