Black Friday is almost here with the big deals weekend kicking off this Friday, the 24th of November, and concluding with Cyber Monday on the 27th of November. The deals are coming thick and fast as the big online cycling retailers are battling for your cash and not waiting around for Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
The Bike Perfect team love a bargain and are always hunting around for the best mountain bike deals. We've found an unlikely source for some of the best Black Friday electric mountain bike deals around at Auto Trader. Yes, you read correctly, Auto Trader now has its own dedicated electric mountain bike website.
With nearly half of British car owners stating they are becoming open to using e-bikes and seeing them as a viable alternative to shorter car journeys, it makes sense for Auto Trader to be listing electric bikes, but having had a browse, using some of these hard-hitting e-MTBs as an alternative to a car journey could be the ultimate example of overkill.
However, there are some incredible Black Friday discounts on superbly specced e-MTBs with some of the best electric MTB motors from recognized brands like Cube, Haibike and Trek, some are packing top-end suspension, carbon frames and some drool-worthy finishing kit with big discounts. I've picked three options below, but it is worth noting these bikes aren't available in lots of sizing and colors options, so if one of the below catches your eye I'd recommend snapping it up quickly. I'd also suggest checking out the huge selection of other Black Friday electric mountain bike deals at Auto Trader, and for specific buying advice, see our best electric mountain bikes and best budget e-MTB articles.
1. Cube Stereo 160 HPC
I've tested a few versions of the Cube Stereo e-MTB including the Cube Stereo Hybrid 140 HPC which is equipped with ABS braking which, for the car geeks reading, delivered incredible confidence-inspiring ABS braking very similar in function and performance to the ABS fitted to cars and motorbikes. This version of the Cube Stereo comes with a massive £1,100 discount and an impressive specification, which makes the price even more appealing. It features Cube's Advanced Twin Mold carbon frame that they say results in a significantly lighter and stronger frame which is built around Bosch's fourth-generation CX drive unit and a high-capacity 750Wh battery. The suspension comes from Fox with a trail-flattening 170mm Kashima fork and is paired with a Kashima coated 160mm rear shock. Kashima coating on Fox suspension is a hard but lubricating anodised coating which is resistant to abrasion and more durable than traditional shock and fork coating, and has the instantly recognizable and desirable golden glow. The impressive build continues with Shimano's XT transmission, which delivers precise, rapid shifts across the range of the 12-speed cassette. Newmen Evolution wheels are shod with the highly rated Schwalbe Magic Mary and Big Betty SuperTrail tires.

2. Haibike ALLMTN CF 12
The Haibike ALLMTN CF 12 is also another great buy and very similar to the Haibike AllMtn CF SE reviewed and tested by Graham from the Bike Perfect team.

The drivetrain and braking come from Shimano and the excellent Shimano Deore XT four-piston brakes, along with a Deore XT drivetrain, giving slick shifting across the entire 12-speed range.
