Low, Mid, or High-Step: Which e-Bike Frame Style is Right for You?

There are three types of frames to choose from when deciding on your new e-Bike. While high-step frames have traditionally been considered for men and low-step for women, gendered bikes have become a thing of the past.  Every rider has different needs and you can ride happy on the e-bike frame style that works best for you. Here are the highs and lows of each…

1. High-Step 

high-step Gazelle Medeo T10+ $3,799


With a large front triangle and high standover height, the high-step has the advantages of a stronger, stiffer frame and more mounting options for accessories like bottle cages, frame bags, and locks. With a high standover height, you have to swing your leg over the top tube or saddle which you might want to avoid if you have mobility issues, are vertically challenged, or plan to load up your rear rack with cargo.

2. Mid-Step 

mid-step Gazelle Ultimate T10+ $4,449

This hybrid-style is the middle ground between the high and low-step. It offers a strong frame along with the ability for even shorter riders to step through and hop on.

3. Low-Step

Cube Town Sport Hybrid ONE 400 $2,699

While it has fewer accessory mounting options and can be a little more challenging to balance by the handlebars when at a stop, this is the easiest for on and off maneuverability. The low-step is a great option if you’re a frequent stopper, carry lots of cargo, or have hip or knee issues.
