8 Ways eMTBs Make Outdoor Adventures Irresistible
Summertime typically beckons us outdoors, but sometimes it's easier to find a reason to skip an adventure for a social media scroll in the A/C. Excuses range from big ("It's 95 degrees and I'm too busy/tired!") to small ("I don't feel like loading up to drive to the trailhead"). Here are 8 ways an electric mountain bike (eMTB) blasts those excuses into the sun and leaves you Riding Happy.
1. Uphill Flow
"Uphill flow" becomes your new mantra. Thanks to the power boost of eMTBs, the climbs turns into a joyful and flowing experience. Reading the trail, pumping through dips, and accelerating through corners is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.
2. Double the Downhill
Conquering long and challenging climbs quickly and easily leaves you twice as much time and energy for the adrenaline-pumping descents. Say goodbye to the sufferfest and hello to more thrilling downhill laps!
Adjust your level of assistance to suit your needs. Choose higher assistance levels to conserve energy and reduce effort in extreme heat or dial it down when you want a more challenging workout. eMTBs are versatile companions during summer riding making it an easy “YES, let's ride!” when conditions aren’t optimal for a regular bike.
Zooming along the trails on your eMTB and feeling the rush of wind against your face becomes even more blissful during hot summer days. Those higher speeds are like on trail AC, keeping you cool and invigorated all ride long.
5. Maximize your Time
Feeling time-strapped makes it extra tough to get outside. An eMTB lets you cover more miles in less time, maximizing that feeling of flow and connecting with nature even when time is of the essence. Whether it's a sunrise adventure before the day begins, a quick lunch lap between meetings, or squeezing in a session before school gets out, that boost of natural, feel-good chemicals will keep you smiling all day long.
6. Fossil Fuel-Free Adventures
Minimize your environmental impact by riding your eMTB straight to the trailhead, eliminating the need to load up your vehicle or organize a shuttle. Bonus points for skipping parking pass fees!
7. Tow your Kiddo
Have little ones who are eager to join you on your mountain biking escapades? With an eMTB, you can easily tow them up the climbs. Your electric motor lends a helping hand, ensuring the whole fam can experience smiles for miles.
8. Better Together
One of the greatest joys of riding eMTBs is the ability to bring together friends and family members with varying skill and fitness levels. The motor assists those who may need a little extra help, ensuring everyone can ride together with smiles for miles and make unforgettable memories.
