Touring and electro, is that possible?
For some people, the question may arise as to whether a touring bike, which is supposed to make nature experienceable, can even be combined with an electric motor. In our opinion, this is actually an optimum solution. On the one hand, the electric motors are quiet and emission-free, and on the other hand, great tours can be planned that were not possible before. The manufacturers rely on the latest technological developments in this area and the batteries allow a wide range of use. The focus is always on durability and reliability. The drive components can also be found in electrically powered mountain bikes, but the software is often regulated for touring bikes in such a way that a little less torque is available. This is advantageous on an extended touring tour, and the range is also increased.
Wide range of equipment options
The manufacturers offer the drivers almost the same selection as in the regular series. For commuters and occasional drivers, there are affordable yet well equipped bikes available. For the ambitious driver and bike tourist, there are also extraordinary models with outstanding equipment that make every tour an experience. From the classic Shimano XT, to NuVincis stepless automatic transmission, to the new Brose drive - it's easy to find the right bike for every requirement. Braking is mainly done with a hydraulic disc brake, but there are also many models with this option.
Far away from the old image
In addition to the technical developments that have been rapid in recent years, optics also plays a role. The old e-bikes, which used to have the reputation of being exclusively suitable for older riders, have been significantly revised. The increasingly smaller and smaller drive units and the perfectly integrated rechargeable batteries allow for a sporty and clear look. In addition to the classic colours black and grey, many models are currently available in a fresh look. Chic details in contrasting colours and slender frames give a glimpse of the roots of the road bike. However, as it should be for a touring bike, reliability and functionality are paramount.
For all who want more
An e-touring bike is the perfect companion for commuters, city drivers, touring friends and bike tourists. The use is not limited to certain sub-areas and the bikes are becoming increasingly popular in all age groups. The engine's support makes it possible to go on tours that were previously no longer possible. These bikes are a piece of freedom and at the same time environmentally friendly and health-promoting.
