Checklist For Trekking E-Bikes

This Is How Trekking Works
  • For your child to be able to “trek” successfully, the e-bike should be kept stable and maneuverable at the same time. This is because trekking e-bikes are a hybrid of city bikes and mountain bikes. A stable frame in a minimalist design and large tires are considered typical features.
Frame
  • The idea that high-quality materials weigh more than inferior ones is not wrong.Aluminum, however, is just as hard as steel & Co. and weighs far less. In view of the additional motor, we advise you to choose the lightest possible frame or trekking e-bike, since your child will be carrying it from time to time.
Weight
  • The weight of the trekking e-bike depends on the age and stature of your child. As a rule of thumb for children under 12, for example, the weight of the bike should not exceed 50 percent of the body weight.
Gear Shifting
  • Two types of gears have always competed. Which one is the “right” one is to be judged by riding style and terrain?
  • A derailleur requires sensitivity. For example, the pressure on the pedal must be reduced when shifting gears. In addition, this mechanism is comparatively susceptible to wear and must be serviced regularly. However, with up to 30 gears, derailleur gears are ideal for conquering steep climbs.
  • A hub gear offers between 7 and 10 gears. For city tours as well as trips in the countryside, this number is always enough. A hub gear can score points for its simplicity and closed construction. Dirt and water can do little to the rear derailleur.
Battery
  • Trekking e-bikes shine through their support. In order for your child to benefit from the extra drive, the capacity of the battery should be large enough. Otherwise, the extra weight due to the battery and motor will hardly pay off. A 4.4 volt battery is considered useful to benefit from a long range of up to 30 kilometers, both uphill and downhill.
Motor
  • Since the speed of a children’s e-bike must be throttled to 25 km/h, the motor has only a limited effect on the handling. Trekking e-bikes, however, benefit from a powerful motor: Even steep inclines are conquered effortlessly. 500 to 700 watts will get your protégé up any hill effortlessly.

Here you will find the top 7 among the most popular trekking e-bikes.

FAQ About Trekking E-Bikes

What is a trekking e-bike?

A trekking e-bike can be used almost anywhere and can therefore be used safely on rough terrain as well as in everyday life. If you are exhausted or for other reasons do not want to pedal yourself, you can be driven by the built-in electric motor.

What should I look for when buying a trekking e-bike?

Manufacturers offer a wide variety of models, which can differ in their function. Some trekking e-bikes are therefore more suitable for recreational use (city bikes), others can also be used on bumpy terrain (mountain bikes). But a good braking system is also an advantage on steep descents. You can recognize a trekking e-bike by its large tires, among other things.

How much does a trekking e-bike cost?

A trekking e-bike is relatively expensive when purchased new. Therefore, they can cost up to well over 1000 euros. However, the bikes are very durable, which is why you can use it for many years.

How heavy and large should a trekking e-bike be?

A trekking e-bike should not be too heavy and should be adjusted to your own body weight. Many trekking e-bikes therefore weigh around 20 to 25 kilograms with motor and battery.

How strong is the motor of a trekking e-bike?

The motor of a trekking e-bike is relatively powerful and ranges from 500 to 700 watts. This allows you to climb any mountain, no matter how high, practically effortlessly and lean back a bit during the ride.

Who is a trekking e-bike suitable for?

A trekking e-bike is a true all-rounder and can therefore be unreservedly recommended to all those people who like it versatile. Due to its large tires, it can also be optimally used on any surface.

What are the fitness benefits of a trekking e-bike?

A trekking e-bike is perfect for you if you want to slowly rebuild your fitness or generally have little endurance. You can be supported by the electric motor at any time and stay motivated if you get stuck. So you will surely manage to complete longer distances without the motor again after some time.

How is a trekking e-bike powered?

Most trekking e-bikes are equipped with a mid-mounted motor. This helps you effectively pedal. However, there are also other drives that may be suitable for you. These include, for example, the rear motor or the belt drive. The latter is particularly practical when you are on rough terrain. In contrast to a wheel chain, it does not wear out as quickly.

What material is a trekking e-bike made of?

The frame of the trekking e-bike is usually made of aluminum and should not be too heavy so that you can easily transport it on occasion.

What gears are available for the trekking e-bike?

A derailleur gear system is advantageous if you need a large number of gears, for example, to overcome steep climbs or mountains. The hub gears, on the other hand, only have 7 to 10 gears and are also suitable for children, as they are quickly overwhelmed with too many gears.
