A motor, a battery, and some wheels: It might look like cheating or a sign of laziness to a purist, but these electric bikes make a strong case for a motor assist. With a few hours of charging, you can accelerate quicker, ride hills with less effort, or just ride farther. Also, they're a lot of fun. From pedal-assisting designs to throttle models, we put tons to the test and picked ten of our favorites to take for a spin.
ProdecoTech Outlaw SS
ProdecoTech’s Outlaw SS is the Hummer of e-bikes. Made at the company’s South Florida factory of aircraft-grade aluminum and
sporting hefty 2.4-inch-wide trail tires, it rolls over just about anything in its path. It's a big machine and considering it tops out
at 28 mph at full throttle (that's with zero pedaling) riding it feels more like being on a motocross bike. The suspension fork dampens the shock of any bumps in the road or trail, and the 8 speed SRAM drivetrain is enough to get you around when you lay off the throttle. Prodecco's also outfitted the Outlaw SS with stylish touches, like a Gyes leather saddle and leather hand grips.
