5 Ways E-Bikes Are Becoming More Advanced 

E-bikes are one of the most innovative inventions in the past decades; imagine getting from point A to point B without ever feeling like your heart is going to explode because of the workout. E-bikes help accomplish that goal while maintaining many of the benefits of traditional bikes.

Although e-bikes will not give you a pounding heart just like traditional bikes, they will take you to places farther than you could cover with just a regular bike. The good thing is e-bike technology continues to get better and more affordable. 

E-bikes are becoming more advanced, which might make your e-bike journey a whole lot better, hassle-free, and much more enjoyable to ride. Read on as we cover five ways e-bikes are becoming more and more advanced! 

Battery Technology

E-bikes are primarily run by electricity, and how can you access electricity without a nearby 12 volts socket? A battery. Battery technologies have been around for numerous decades, and history states that the batteries of the past didn’t last longer than the batteries of today do. 

Nuclear batteries were even invented during those times, and if you think it’s a viable option for e-bike, think again. These batteries emit high-level gamma rays, which you wouldn’t like to go near. Today, battery technologies still use lithium-ion since it’s more reliable than alkaline and nickel hydride ones. 

But even though modern e-bikes still use lithium-ion batteries, these batteries pack more punch in terms of stored energy, which translates to giving you more range and distance for your e-bike. Currently, more reliable battery technology is yet to be developed, and we won’t be getting our hands on a better battery unless scientists develop them soon. 

And who knows? We could see e-bikes go a thousand miles easily without too much recharging. Only time will tell, but recent battery developments give us good news. 

Electric Motor Technology

Electric motors give us the push we need when we badly need assistance, especially in challenging terrain. So what about them? Are electric motors slowly getting more advanced, or are they getting left behind by miles in technology? 

The good news is electric motors are becoming more advanced too. However, if you rode an e-bike a decade ago, you’ve already felt its mediocre power in terms of pedal assist. Those electric motors have weaker magnets, and this means that their overall power output is small, if not totally unfelt. Their durability can also be questioned since e-bikes were practically a novel thing a decade ago. 

Today, e-bikes can give you instantaneous acceleration, like riding a fully-electric car or an electric scooter. The manufacturers of modern electric motors have efficiently eliminated all points of friction inside the motor, giving you more speediness and immediate power. Who doesn’t want that anyways? 

Plus, today’s electric motors have reliable durability, so you can ride with peace of mind that your motor won’t give up on you while you traverse through challenging terrain. 

Mobile Integration Technology

In today’s era, everybody is using their phones. Look right, and you’ll see a pedestrian scrolling through their phone while crossing a road. Look left, and you’ll see a car driver playing games on their phone while waiting for the traffic light to go green. 

The invention of smartphones is often seen as a hit-or-miss device since it offers many benefits and drawbacks. But for the case of e-bikes, mobile integration is a really great feature that provides many benefits to users and the e-bike itself. 

Most modern e-bikes today can be hooked up to your smartphone through an app, and you can monitor your e-bike’s remaining range, odometer, current speed (or speedometer), average speed, and a timer for monitoring your current trip duration. 

The best thing about it? Some models have software that detects e-bike failures and displays recommended maintenance procedures for you. This is a self-diagnosing setting and is a great feature to have, especially if you need to be better-versed in e-bike servicing and maintenance procedures. 

Indeed, smartphones do come in handy if you’re an e-bike rider. Set up your bike computer and hook it up to your phone for a seamless mobile integration giving you more versatility on the road. 

Frame Technology 

Let’s be honest e-bikes are notoriously heavy thanks to the weight of the electric motor and the battery pack. In addition, E-bike models generally use durable but heavier frames such as steel, and although durability is a good thing, it can be a hindrance if you carry the bike almost all the time. 

Fortunately, e-bike manufacturers listened and developed new e-bike frames that are significantly lighter but also durable, if not more durable than the previously developed frames. These frames use alloy—a significantly lighter material than steel but are as durable as steel. 

But it’s great to know that an alloy is a combination of two or more metals to create one material. E-bike models generally use durable but heavier frames such as steel, and although durability is a good thing, it can be a hindrance if you carry the bike almost all the time. 

Another novel frame invention is using carbon fiber to significantly cut down on weight and improve the e-bike’s aerodynamics. However, these e-bikes are often really expensive as carbon fiber is a challenging material to mass produce. 

Nonetheless, e-bike frames have become more advanced by being lighter, more aerodynamic, and significantly easier to move around. 

Charging Technology

Partnered with an evolved battery tech, an e-bike’s charging feature is also revamped, improved, and advanced. As mentioned earlier, e-bikes of today use lithium-ion technology which is, by far, the best battery tech available today. As a result, they’re dependable and durable, and you can top up their energy levels just like topping up on gas. 

Aside from that, modern chargers take a little longer to charge your e-bike’s battery. Some models even have quick chargers that give you 40% more speed when recharging. Old charging technologies give you around 15 to 22 hours to charge a typical e-bike battery. 

But today, charging tech has evolved, and you can charge your e-bike for just 4-6 hours. That’s a really significant improvement for assessing technologies. However, some mechanics might tell you that quick charging will deplete battery life over time. 

But it shouldn’t be a considerable problem provided you charge using the model’s out-of-the-box charger and charge on an area with room temperature and low relative humidity.
