What is a women's electric bike?

What we call an electric bike for women is a VAE specifically adapted to women's morphology. In recent years, more and more women have pointed out that they are not comfortable on their two-wheelers. Pelvic pain, an unsuitable frame, difficulty in stepping over when wearing certain clothes, accessories that don't suit their use... Manufacturers have responded to their needs, and some are designing electric bikes for women, developed to provide the necessary riding comfort, without diminishing the ebike's performance.

What are the special features of an electric bike for women?

If you are looking for the best electric bike for women, you should definitely consider these 3 criteria!

A bike with a smaller frame, handlebars and wheel size

Your women's electric bike needs to suit your body type, and that means choosing the right frame size. Generally speaking, these bikes have a smaller frame than men's models, and a different design. In fact, the top tube of a woman's electric bike is designed for people with short torsos and long legs.

The handlebars are generally thinner in diameter and smaller in length, to allow a better grip for a female cyclist, whose hands are often smaller than those of men.

As for the size of the wheels, choose 26-inch wheels if you are between 1.50 m and 1.85 m, 27.5-inch wheels if your height is between 1.55 m and 1.90 m and finally, opt for a 29-inch wheel size if you are very tall (over 1.70 m)

The most important measurements to take before buying a used electric bike for women are: height, inseam height and arm span. Don't hesitate to use the Upway size filter, which will help you find bikes to suit your size in just one click.

An open frame for easy climbing

Women's electric bikes generally have no center bars. They feature an open frame (or "gooseneck"), also found on Dutch bikes, for example. The reason? This type of frame is easier to straddle and is designed to facilitate climbing. So, even if you're wearing a skirt or dress, you can get on your electric bike with ease.

The truth is, electric bikes with open frames are also suitable for men. They're especially handy for frequent stops, for example in town.

A saddle designed for women

The main difference between a woman's electric bike and a man's is actually the saddle. A woman's saddle is wider and shorter than a man's. There are two reasons for this. There are two reasons for this: women's pelvic bones are wider, and their nerve endings are higher. Saddle support is therefore different for men and women.

If you share your VAE with a man, there's a good compromise: unisex saddles. They're not as comfortable as a saddle designed specifically for women, but they're still worth it! Finally, it's also possible to replace the original saddle with a women's saddle. There are, for example, saddles that allow full contact with the buttocks.

What is the difference between a woman's and a man's electric bicycle?

As you can see, the best women's electric bike for you is the one you feel comfortable riding. It differs from a men's model essentially by the shape of its saddle, the geometry of its frame and its size. Most EABs are unisex, but if you use them on a daily basis, or for regular exercise, then you'll want to go for a women's electric bike, for the ultimate in riding comfort.

And that's just as well, because more and more manufacturers are designing models specifically to match women's driving styles and body shapes! In this field, the Liv electric bikes electric bikes stand out from the crowd. Based in Taiwan and developed by world bike leader Giant, it's designed specifically for women, by women.

What types of electric bikes are recommended for women?

It is possible to find electric bikes for women for all types of practices! Here is a small overview of the best of the women's electric bike market.

Women's electric city bike

A good electric city bike must have a suitable saddle, a frame designed for easy climbing and a comfortable riding position. For the more style-conscious, it's of course possible to choose the frame color from a range of more or less pop and original shades.

Wegoboard's CityZen is a highly acclaimed electric city bike for women. Its open frame makes it easy to straddle, even if you're wearing a skirt or dress. The height of the handlebars can be adjusted to suit your height. Electric assistance is smooth and well-dosed. This VAE has a 45 Nm torque motor and a range of up to 60 km.

Of course, it also has an open frame for easy climbing, whatever your outfit.

Women's folding electric bike

If you're looking for a folding electric bike, it's because you plan to be able to transport it easily everywhere. So the number-one criterion to take into account is not only its weight, but also how easily it can be folded.

Two companies in particular stand out in the world of lightweight women's electric bikes: Brompton and Eovolt. Brompton is a pioneering British manufacturer of folding bicycles. It designs the world's most compact models, with a unique folding system. They can be folded in a jiffy, taken anywhere and stored in the tightest spaces. Evolt is a French brand whose Eovolt Confort model is reputed to be one of the lightest on the market, weighing in at just 14 kg. You'll never grimace again when you lift it into your trunk!

Finally, we also recommend the Moovway Escapad folding electric bike for women. It's designed for both city and country use, so it's perfect for taking with you on green vacations. Its battery enables you to cover 35 to 40 km in complete autonomy.

Electric bike VTC woman

Its 50 Nm torque motor provides up to 300% pedaling assistance. With its sporty look, this women's electric bike with pedal motor offers a smooth, natural ride.

MTB electric woman

If you're a fan of MTB, you'll be more comfortable on a women's electric MTB than on a unisex model. You'll recognize these models by the following features: a shorter frame adapted to the female center of gravity, a wider and shorter lower seat, softer suspension, narrower handlebars and smaller grips. Finally, if you're new to MTB, a semi-rigid model is recommended. You'll find the Grand Canyon:ON 8 electric MTB for women. Marketed at an affordable price, it's powered by a powerful yet lightweight Shimano EP8 motor. You'll be able to choose the frame color from 3 original shades, including Milky Terracotta: a pastel, feminine shade that's very much in vogue.

You can also choose a short-suspension VTTAE, whose geometry has no impact on climbs and makes descents safer and more stable. A full-suspension MTB , on the other hand, is more suited to women who are accustomed to this type of riding, and to picking up speed on their outings.

How to choose your electric bike for women according to your use?

This will enable you to move it easily if you need to store it at home, or if its battery is flat. It's also easier to handle when riding.

A lightweight ebike makes it easier for you to manage speed and gives you greater range. The average weight of an electric-assist bike is between 19 and 28 kg. A folding electric bike generally weighs around 20 kg, while an MTB electric bike is closer to 25 kg. When choosing your electric bike for women, it's best to opt for an EAB whose weight won't be an obstacle, such as the Btwin Tilt 500 folding bike, which weighs 18.6 kg. You should also opt for a VAE with a suspended seatpost, which will cushion the impact of shocks. Finally, it's also important to check the comfort of the saddle, which should be wide enough and, if possible, adapted to women's morphology. In fact, women's pelvis morphology is wider than men's.
