Do you know the difference between S-pedelecs and e-bikes? Interestingly, only a few know it: While e-bikes can ride without your help by pedaling, pedelecs require you to support the motor through the pedals. In the following checklist, you will find the most important buying criteria as well as general information about pedelecs, and further down we will support you with specific product recommendations.

- The city pedelec is designed for fast progress in the city. It usually has a robust luggage carrier system for shopping or other transport in urban areas.
- The Trekking-S-Pedelec is robust, comfortable, and designed for heavier weights. This is a good all-rounder and is suitable for longer bike tours with relatively large amounts of luggage.
- For regular off-road use, the MTB-S-Pedelec is suitable. It copes well with heavy terrain with wide tires, wide suspension travel, adapted gear ratios and an even more stable frame.
- Compact S-pedelecs are particularly practical for commuters. They are particularly light and easy to transport thanks to their compressed frame shape. Some examples are even completely foldable.
- The cargo S-pedelec is characterized by its large loading area between the front axle and handlebars. This allows you to transport even bulky luggage in an environmentally friendly way.
- Unlike a classic e-bike or pedelec, the pedal assistance only switches off at 45- and not 20- repetitive 25 km/h. Accordingly, there is a helmet and driver’s license requirement (class AM).
- The fastest S-pedelecs have a rated continuous output of up to 4,000 watts and a pedal-assist maximum of 400 watts.
- The range depends on the battery capacity and the selected assistance level.
- With a battery capacity of 400 to 500 Wh, between 120 and 200 km are theoretically possible. Note that these figures mostly refer to straight stretches. On inclines, the range may decrease.
- The braking power should be adapted to the higher top speed of an S-pedelec.
- A disc brake system with a diameter of at least 180 mm should be mandatory for you. A hydraulic brake power assistance helps with the dosage.
- Comfortable are S-pedelecs with suspension fork (hardtail) and switchable lockout (blocks the suspension on asphalt).
- For difficult terrain, a fully with suspension fork and shock absorber is a good choice. This makes very fast descents possible.
- An S-pedelec for the road should already be equipped with an LED light system and mudguards from the factory.

With a pedelec, you have to pedal for the motor to start. An e-bike can also ride on its own, so you don’t necessarily need to pedal.
