Is it better to buy an electric bike or an ordinary mountain bike? Electric bikes are convenient and quick, so if you need to rush, buy an electric bike; mountain bikes are green, low-carbon and good for exercise, so if you are not too rushed, buy a mountain bike.
CMACEWHEEL, a Chinese electric bike company, has recently launched a new product, the CMACEWHEEL RX20, an electric off-road bike. The bike is a good mix of e-bike and cyclocross bike, with clean lines and a touch of science fiction. The RX20 is powered by a 750W motor, and the lighter drive motor in the middle does not affect the speed of the bike.
The RX20 is said to have a 15AH 48V battery with a maximum range of around 110km. If the battery runs out, you can still pedal along, it will just take your energy, but nevertheless, this is the benefit of pedalling the bike.
Things will start to change as lithium-ion battery technology advances, prices come down and power improves, and there is a shift from petrol-powered to zero-emission vehicles. Now, analysts say they expect sales of electric bicycles to increase dramatically in the coming years.
We expect sales of electric bikes to reach 130 million in the US between 2020 and 2023. Tens of billions of bike trips per year means fewer car trips will be made and emissions will be lower, while also reducing traffic congestion and urban air pollution.
