Why an E-Bike Hardtail?

Compared to previous "normal" e-bike hardtails without e-drive, the e-mountain bike puts more weight on the road and therefore has to accept a reduction in manoeuvrability and lightness, but it has all the other features of a mountain bike. Thanks to the engine it also offers countless advantages, which easily compensate for the small losses. These include first and foremost the enormous fun factor! The feeling of being able to cover considerably longer distances or conquer your favourite trail much more often gives you a new feeling of motivation, freedom and success. Especially when it comes to topics such as age and illness, which have a great influence on fitness, you no longer have to do without your beloved bike.

Why an E-Bike Hardtail?

Compared to previous "normal" e-bike hardtails without e-drive, the e-mountain bike puts more weight on the road and therefore has to accept a reduction in manoeuvrability and lightness, but it has all the other features of a mountain bike. Thanks to the engine it also offers countless advantages, which easily compensate for the small losses. These include first and foremost the enormous fun factor!

Especially when it comes to topics such as age and illness, which have a great influence on fitness, you no longer have to do without your beloved bike.


Even a small detour into the forest on the way home is no longer associated with extreme exertion and negative thoughts thanks to the E-MTB, but provides balance and a healthy way to end the stress of work. In addition, the increased weight due to the support of the electric motor plays a less important role. Whether for ladies or gentlemen, for young or old, whether with the help of a lowered top tube or even with a slightly smaller frame and wheels: among the e-mountainbikes there are models to suit every requirement.

MTB Hardtail versus MTB Fully

The E-MTB Hardtail counts as an absolute all-rounder and is the perfect choice for you if you are mainly on solid ground or off road on light to medium heavy trails. Compared to a full-suspension mountain bike with two suspensions, the Hardtail has only one spring/telescopic fork in the front part of the bike to absorb shocks. The rear part therefore remains stiff, resulting in a safer ride and more precise riding technique. In addition, there is a much better and more efficient power transmission, as no power is lost through the suspension. For tours on level ground and uphill rides, the MTB Hardtail can also achieve a higher speed. Also in terms of weight the Hardtail has a considerable advantage over the MTB Fully due to the fewer parts used. On top of that it requires less care and less wear parts, which makes the maintenance of the MTB Hardtail much easier.

Important components of the mountain bike

The frames are made of titanium, steel and preferably, due to the low weight, aluminium or carbon. The hydraulic disc brakes provide improved riding technique and shorter braking distances. For the wheels you can choose between 27.5 inch and 29 inch wheels. 27.5 inch wheels are particularly recommended for downhill-oriented mountain bikers, as they provide considerably greater manoeuvrability and still offer a certain amount of smoothness. However, they offer a disadvantage on longer tours and long-distance excursions, as they have poorer rolling characteristics and therefore a loss of speed. In the meantime even 27.5+ wheels can be used. The slightly wider wheels, whose weight is compensated for by the electric motor, provide a higher grip. From approx. 1.70m height and tour-oriented bikers, 29-inch wheels are recommended, as they offer greater riding comfort and can cover more distance due to the high pedalling energy. In addition, there is better road grip, but also reduced manoeuvrability.

The right engine - spoilt for choice

The engine is one of the most important components. The heart of every e-mountain bike. In modern E-MTBs, this is installed as a powerful mid-mounted motor directly on the bottom bracket in order to optimally position the additional weight. This replaces the rear wheel hub motor. This results in a much smoother and track-safe ride. Important issues when it comes to e-bike motors are always the maximum weight and the maximum speed. Our manufacturers decide which motor/manufacturer to use depending on the requirements and the bike. In our small comparison, we describe significant differences between the engines we favor. Our technical advisors will also be happy to answer any detailed questions you may have.

The range of the batteries depends largely, of course, on the battery capacity, measured in ampere or watt hours, the power of the motor and the selected driving mode. The larger batteries have a capacity of 500Wh, giving a range of up to 140 kilometres when driving on the flat. However, under certain circumstances, this range may decrease. These include, for example, very steep gradients, an uneven surface, very cold temperatures or even the weight of the driver. If this is 50 kg, the range is greater than for a driver weighing 100 kg. The use of lithium-ion batteries results in an extremely long durability and easy handling. The battery can be recharged at home or at one of the now widespread e-charging stations throughout Europe.

What does an E-MTB Hardtail cost

In terms of price, the E-MTB Hardtail is much more interesting than the E-MTB Fully, as it is possible to get started at only 1500€-1800€. The golden mean is around 2500€, which is still in the affordable range. In this price range there is much more offered than in the beginner models. The motor and battery are often integrated in a light aluminium frame in a visually appealing way. This also protects the sensitive electronics in the event of a fall. The high-end products start at around 3500€ and are almost exclusively equipped with a motor and battery fully integrated into the frame. The motor and battery are often made of carbon, which makes the E-MTB Hardtail much lighter.
