What is the best electric bike for commuting?


Good electric bikes aren’t just made for leisurely rides. No, they are also designed to be more practical, so that people can use them to travel to and from the office or their place of work. While most workers would think to hop in the car, for others, an electric commuter bike is a much more eco-friendly mode of transport.


With that in mind, we have made it our mission at Skootz to not only stock the best ebikes for commuting, but we also want you to tap into our expert knowledge, so you can find the perfect electric commuter bike for you.


So, let’s run through our top electric bikes for commuting:


Samebike LO26


The Samebike LO26 is a rather stylish looking e-bike, and while it may appear to have a more mountain bike feel about it, it is still ideal for travelling to work. Boasting a top speed of 22mph, the Samebike LO26 has a 500w motor. It also has a comfortable and adjustable seat along with handlebars, and the bike only weighs 25kg.


We are also impressed with the fact that it only takes four hours to charge, and while it may appear to be rather expensive at £1,249, it is certainly a worthwhile investment. You can also spread the cost over 3 monthly payments of £416.33 with Klarna.


Kaisda K2


Coming in at £10 more expensive than the Samebike LO26, the Kaisda K2 20 inch electric bike looks more like a traditional e-bike. Although like the Samebike LO26, the Kaisda K2 has a top speed of 22mph. However, it has a great range when it comes to electric (19 miles) and pedal support (24 miles) distances. The Kaisda K2 has 20inch tyres, a digital display, and weighs 32kg making it a great choice for travelling to work.


DYU D3F Electric Bike


The DYU D3F electric bike is what you would expect visually from an e-bike. And out of all the electric bikes we have in stock, we wouldn’t hesitate to say that this is definitely one of the best electric bikes we sell, especially for those on a budget. It has a 240w motor and a top speed of 15mph. Although the motor is smaller than other models, it is still a good and safe option as an electric commuter bike.


The tyres are small, measuring 14inches, but there is a digital display and headlights, so if you are travelling back in the dark, you will be seen by other motorists. Although it has been reduced from £549 to £499, this doesn’t take anything away from this model being a superb e-bike for commuting.


Samebike XWXLO9


The other Samebike model – the XWXL09 – will be a great choice for experienced ebike riders who are prepared to ditch their cars for their journey into work. Although it may look like a dirt bike that is ideal for off-track riding, the Samebike XWXL09 is also a great option for commuting, and it’s currently available for £1,785.


With a top speed of 30mph, and a 500w motor, the Samebike XWXL09 is a very popular model, and it continues to attract interest.
