Best Electric Bikes for Christmas 2022

From portable folding bikes to trail-ready mountain bikes, the world of electric bikes is ever-expanding and ever-improving, making one a perfect gift this Christmas. We've pulled together some of the top picks across several categories to help you decide which one is the best for your needs. To get more news about electric bike, you can visit official website.

A luxury folding bike, the G4i takes the best bits of the G4 model like the smooth G4drive™ electric motor and amplifies them with a carbon fibre mid-frame and an F1-inspired cockpit. It's great to ride, thanks to the proprietary three-speed gearbox and easy to transport as it folds down nicely into a car boot or for you to take to work on the train or bus.
Cheaper than the Gocycle but still with plenty of frills, the GB3 is the newest model from MiRider and features a belt drive and a three-speed gearbox. It's great on the hills and even comes with a boost button to help you get up to speed when you set off from traffic lights or need a bit of speed up an incline.

The lightest folder on our list, the FLIT-16 weighs just 15kg and is ingenious in its design. It may not look like it, but it rides extremely well even on steep gradients with the single-speed drivetrain. It's also the most compact on our list, so if you're someone who wants a bike for a multi-modal commute or for running about town, it's one to put on your list.

A beautifully designed single-speed urban machine, the London from Volt is great value and offers a great ride, too. The Bafang rear-hub motor works well in urban or countryside settings, while the 504Wh battery can provide a range of up to 70 miles in optimum conditions. The bike comes ready to ride, with a front rack and mudguards. At just over £2000 and offered via Volt's website you get a lot of bang for your buck, and the London is a decent option for urban and leisure riders alike.

One of the sleekest looking e-bikes in the urban market, the Ribble Hybrid AL e shines as a bike for leisure riding just as much as utility. For an extra £100, you can buy the Move Electric Award-winning Fully Loaded Edition which comes with a paint-matched rear rack for your panniers and mudguards. It's powered by the popular Mahle SmartBike Systems X35+ rear hub motor and integrated 250Wh battery which can provide up to 60 miles of range.

The latest edition in the brilliant Roadlite:ON series, these bikes are impressively agile and fun to ride. They might be designed for the urban environment but nothing is stopping you from riding for miles in the countryside, thanks to the latest Fazua motor: the Ride 60 system. If you don't need the top spec, there are cheaper versions available, like the Canyon Roadlite:ON 6 that we reviewed previously.

Although perhaps the most 'urban' looking of all on our list, the Specialized Turbo Como 4.0 is far more versatile than it looks. A rear rack means it's practical and the low-slung top tube makes it more accessible to a wider range of riders. Paired with moustache-shaped handlebars and a Specialized 2.0 motor, it provides miles of effortless and enjoyable riding, wherever you choose to go.

After a race-ready frame with electric assist? Look no further than the Endurance SL e from Ribble. There are a few different versions, separated by the groupset choice, so you can choose which suits your budget best. Like all Ribble bikes, the motor is the Mahle Smartbike X35+ system and is paired with a sleek iWoc control button on the top tube from which you control your three levels of assistance. If you’re after something to help you conquer more hills or keep up with your clubmates when the road goes up, it’s certainly a bike to consider.

The E-Adventure is built for British gravel, and by that we mean it can handle a lot more than a canal towpath. A long, slack frame paired with wide tyre clearances and for the latest Rambler edition, a suspension-compatible frame means you can take it wherever the bridleway goes. Up moor and down rock, it's powered by FAZUA's latest mid-drive system and is available for pre-order to arrive in December this year (just in time for Christmas).
