Understand Your Needs
Comfort is key when navigating city streets – go for a step-through frame, it really makes a difference. Next comes looks. Some prefer their e-bikes to look like regular MTBs, others may want to swag out their electric motor a little more. Husqvarna E-Bicycles’ commuter models prominently highlights Shimano motor’s with batteries specially developed for each bike, blending handsomely into the design.
Is climbing crucial? Then the crisp and precise electronic shifting of a Shimano 11- or 12-speed drivetrain is what you’ll need. Coupled with the Shimano hydraulic two-piston brakes with massive rotors, rest assured you have absolutely nothing to worry about (except for maybe the urge to take on every steep paths you see). Shimano’s STEPS drive unit on Husqvarna E-Bicycles’ urban range also gives riders a handy walk assist feature, while giving a natural braking feel as well.
If riding long distances is your aim, you’ll appreciate the 504-watt-hour battery that’s also standard. Pretty neat, huh?
