Cyber Monday is here and the full frenzy of deals will run through to midnight on November 27th. Electric mountain bike deals have been in full swing for some time already, as retailers are getting in new 2024 models so need to shift their stock of older bikes, but we might see even more reductions over the coming few days. There's also lots of great mountain bike deals already in play too.

After the huge boom in bike sales during and following the Covid-19 related lockdowns, the industry started producing additional bikes to meet increased demand. Unfortunately, that bubble burst not long after so many brands have been left with a large surplus of stock bikes. However, that means we're seeing bigger discounts than usual at retailers as brands look to get rid of their 2022 and 2023 stock, which means there are lots of great mountain bike deals already in play. Brands are releasing their 2024 stock in smaller numbers than in the previous couple of years, so with the industry awash with surplus bikes, I think 2023 is a particularly good year for bagging an e-MTB bargain.

We've found discounts of up to 44 percent on top electric mountain bikes from Specialized, Santa Cruz, Orbea, Giant, Marin and more. Chain Reaction are offering huge discounts on Vitus bikes with up to 40 percent off the brand's e-MTBs. You may have heard the news that Wiggle/Chain Reaction have gone into administration, but the administrators have issued a statement saying that "all operations are running as normal".

We'll be updating this article through Cyber Monday with more top offers as they arrive, so consider bookmarking this page to keep you keep an eye on the best Cyber Monday electric mountain bike deals.

Chain Reaction and Wiggle are both now offering an extra 10% off certain sale items for Cyber Monday week by using the code EXTRA10. Handily, this does apply to the bikes listed below from Chain Reaction. We've done the maths so you can see the actual prices on the bikes affected below.

He also awarded it 4.5-stars in his review. Only the size XL is left.

How to choose the best electric mountain bike

Are there e-MTB restrictions?

US

In the US, rules for e-bikes vary from state to state; with 30 states classifying e-bikes as ordinary bicycles, while the remaining 20 label e-bikes as mopeds, scooters or something else altogether. 

Federal law defines an electric bicycle as a "two- or three-wheeled vehicle with fully operable pedals and an electric motor of fewer than 750 watts, whose maximum speed on a paved level surface when powered solely by such a motor while ridden by an operator who weighs 170 pounds, is less than 20mph." 

It's worth noting this statute defines the maximum assisted speed of the bike propelled solely by the motor, not when it's being pedaled. To make things more confusing, state regulations can supersede the federal statute. 

The Bicycle Product Suppliers Association has proposed a three-class system that divides electric bikes up based on their maximum assisted speed:

For all three classes, the motor can only put out a max of 750 watts, and the class needs to be clearly labeled.

Even still, the Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management and the National Parks Service categorize e-MTBs as 'motorized', and they are only permitted where motorized vehicles are allowed. This means that the trail networks near your house might not be open for electric mountain bikes, however, some local and state land management agencies have made exceptions.  

Our friends over at People for Bikes and MTB project have put together a pretty comprehensive map of trails where electric mountain bikes are permitted. You can see the full map here.

UK and EU

The UK adopted a lot of the EU's regulations regarding e-bikes, but considering Brexit, it's hard to say if these restrictions will change as things move along.

The 'Electrically Assisted Pedal Cycle (EPAC) Amendment Regulations' mandates that electric assistance can only provide 250 watts of aid and must cut out at 25kph. It also stipulates the rider must be at least 14-years old and the bike must be in motion before the motor kicks in.

Electric bikes (and riders) that meet these standards have the same legal standing as regular bicycles and are allowed on roads, bike paths and singletrack.

Australia

In Australia, e-bikes are split into throttle operated and pedal assist. Both systems must be limited to 25kph, and the throttle-operated motors can only output 200 watts while pedal assist is legal up to 250 watts. Anything that exceeds these figures is considered a motorbike and must be licensed and insured.

Are mid-drive ebikes better?

While the best e-MTB motors can be placed in either wheel or at the bottom bracket, e-MTBs should have a mid-drive motor system. The motor and battery are the heaviest parts of the bike, and with this weight between the wheels and close to the ground, it doesn't throw your center of gravity out of whack.

Mid-motor systems also perform more efficiently at a lower cadence and have sensors to measure how hard you're pedaling to tailor the level of torque and maintain grip. The motors are optimized for trail use, with a few levels of assistance ranging from low-watt 'eco' modes to gradient flattening 'turbo'.

Batteries will be described in Watt-hours or Wh,  taking both output and capacity into account — a bigger number means the battery will take you farther on a single charge, but those with more capacity are heavier which will impact the ride characteristics.

Are electric mountain bikes good for trail riding?

Improvements in design and geometry mean that the best electric mountain bikes are extremely cable and fun to ride off-road. That said there is a lot of spec considerations that will affect the way a bike performs off-road.

Many e-mountain bikes come with robust aluminum framesets, but brands are rolling out more carbon options as they get the hang of this new segment of bikes. As with analog mountain bikes, full-suspension reigns supreme when it comes to e-MTBs, and with the right suspension tune, the extra weight can improve descending. Look for robust suspension and a fork with at least 36mm stanchions for proper trail riding.

With the extra weight from the motor and battery, it takes considerably more force to slow an e-MTB down, and when you're hurtling toward an unsuspecting hiker or a hairpin corner, you're going to want four-piston brakes and 200mm rotors.

The additional weight also means the wheels will be built solid, with more spokes and wrapped in 2.5in (or bigger) tubeless tires. With rolling resistance being less of a consideration, manufacturers opt for puncture-resistant casings and more aggressive tread.
