Are you considering joining the e-bike revolution
and want to know what the best new e-bikes on the market have to offer? Electric bikes in 2021 will
be more compact, lighter, faster, and designed better for the rider's individual needs. We have
been paying close attention to the exciting new arrivals on the scene in 2020. Here are the
most innovative e-bikes currently on our radar. To get notified when a new video
is posted hit the bell icon below, right next to the subscribe button.
Thank you for watching Mind's Eye Design! First up is the new, incredibly practical, and
family-friendly from the Taiwanese firm TERN. We know Tern for bringing us its popular
original GSD onto the e-bike scene in 2017. The new updated version, the
Tern GSD, has a sturdier frame with a more accessible step-through design,
making it effortless to get on and off. The Tern GSD is truly a bike built for
families. The creative design allows seating for two children if needed. When
not required, the seats can be removed to allow for lots of room to pack up and go on an
adventure or simply bring home the groceries.
This cargo bike is capable of towing an impressive
440lb load on its beefed-up frame and yet folds up small enough to fit in your closet. The company's
patented "cargo node" technology brings new limits to the carrying capacity of e-bikes and
raised $153,638 on Kickstarter back in 2015. The rumors that Segway is dead are highly
exaggerated. One of the great modern pioneers in personal transportation is back, stronger than
ever. Segway has a brilliant lineup of different types of e-bikes, but it was the Segway
Dirt E-Bike that really got our attention. Are you a fan of off-road riding? If so, Segway makes it possible for e-bikes with
this gorgeous cross between a dirt bike and a mountain bike with serious power. The thing about
offroad bike riding can be tough sometimes to get the torque you need to make challenging inclines
and overcome obstacles. This bike sports a "ride by wire" throttle that can be customized
by an app on your phone – now that's new! Segway released two versions of the dirt e-bike
incase the smaller yet powerful x160 just wasn't enough; you could upgrade to the x260 beast.
The x160 has a top speed of 30 MPH and has a 40-mile range, but the 260x smashes in with speeds
reaching 47 MPH and a substantial 75-mile range. The acceleration of 0-31 MPH in just over four
seconds makes riding off-road a whole new game. Segway is calling – answer the
call of the wild and conquer it! Did someone say "fat tire?"
When it comes to off-road adventuring, the legendary Jeep™ all-terrain vehicle certainly
comes to mind.
If you ever wondered what would happen if Jeep made bikes – you're about to
find out. The 4.8 inch wide tires powered by a 750-watt electric motor class 2 e-bike can
rip through even the toughest of terrains. The Jeep e-bike has an impressive 40-mile range,
even sporting a 10-speed drive train pushing 118 ft-lbs of torque. As you would expect from
Jeep, the entire bike is built like a rock. The company was looking to build an e-bike
as rugged as possible to give the rider an advantage over the most challenging of
rides, and we agree they hit the mark. At the time of writing, thousands of anxious
extreme biking fans await their pre-orders. With the demand high for this
push into new off-road ability, we have no doubt Jeep e-bikes are going
to be all the buzz going into 2021. We can't wait to get our hands on
one for some serious offroading fun! What could be better than a stylish cargo
bike with an incredibly stable ride? Design the bike to transform
itself into a tandem bike. Thanks to this brilliant innovation by HASE,
the PINO is just that – a tandem bike that folds down to the same compact size of a normal bike
with its first of a kind adjustable wheelbase.
Tandem bikes don't have to be awkward to
ride alone anymore, either. The HASE Tandem in "city biking" single rider configuration is
stylish and practical with its front cargo hold. Alone or with another, this bike is certainly
taking you places in a new and improved way. Thanks to the NEW PINO's revolutionary
telescoping frame and foldable design, the bike is the perfect size for bike mounts
on vehicles. It can be easily stored without the need for extra space. Sharing your ride
with someone has never been more comfortable, natural, or as fun as it will be
with PINO STEPS coming in 2021. There is a class of e-bike that lies between a
city street bike and on off-road dirt e-bike, and that is the domain of the Grail:ON. Taking
into consideration both gravel and street riding, the Grail:ON is the bike for the
versatile needs of enthusiasts. Although the bike has impressive power
at 550w and a long 80-mile range, the real sell is the handlebars.
the high-end German bicycle manufacturer, is trying their hand at bringing
new levels of comfort to your ride. They are called double-decker handlebars and
they give you more freedom of choice for grip and riding positions than
any other e-bike on the list. The first assembly line made model-T has
nothing on this e-bike manufactured with the tools of modern manufacturing – 3D printing.
That's right! It's the world's first 3D printed carbon fiber composite e-bike and coming to
us via a wildly successful indiegogo campaign that recently brought in the San Francisco
based Superstrata over $8 million! The team at Superstratata set out on a
mission to bring a lightweight e-bike built strong and custom-built to fit the rider.
That's where state of the art 3D printers meet up with the design genius of your perfect
bike – a bike literally made for you.
Every bike they ship is custom-built for the height,
weight, and even riding style of their owner. The magic doesn't stop there. The entire
electrical system is built right into the frame. Amazingly it doesn't even look like an e-bike but
still has a 60-mile range and 20 mph top speed. This didn't make the list of top 10, but
we thought it was really worth mentioning. The MIT Autonomous Bike is a prototype e-bike
with side by side rear wheels and two motors. One motor steers the bike side to side by turning
the front wheel, while the other motor powers it. Using an app and guided by GPS
with obstacle avoidance sensors, the bike can drive autonomously
to clients who summon it. With rear wheels that spread apart, it
functions like a self-driving tricycle. Our next bike is the follow-up of the Scorpion
released by Juicy Bikes back in 2019. You guessed right – they juiced it up! The Juiced Hyperscopian
is riding on the edge of the motorcycle class but gives the compact, smooth ride of a moped. Do you need a reliable e-bike designed
to get there on the city streets? The Juiced Hyperscorpian has features you
would only see on electric motorcycles, such as suspension forks, hydraulic disc brakes, mirrors,
indicators, and even a license plate holder. All to better serve its rider through
the hustle and bustle of urban roads.
Yamaha was the first to bring us the world's
first electrically power-assisted bicycle (PAS) back in 1993, and they have been
leading e-bike innovation ever since. Yamaha has made the electric drive trains
that power over 4 million e-bikes worldwide. This summer, Yamaha unveiled their
first full-suspension e-bike and the world's first bicycle frame with a split
top and down tubes. The sophisticated split frame brings next-level
mobility with its compact design. The removable 500-watt battery can be hot-swapped
out in seconds to double the range by carrying a spare.
The YDX has another feature you won't find
anywhere else, an angle sensor. This ingenious addition to the ever smarter e-bike electric
system provides next-level automatic riding. Nearing the top of our list of favorites is the
speed demon, Delafst Top 3.0, with a top speed of 50 miles per hour. Delfast is introducing
two models of the Top 3.0, Prime and OffRoad. The bikes are comparable in speed
and range, with the Prime topping our list for bikes to take on long trips with
a record-breaking 245 miles range per charge! The Delfast Offroad has less
range, 174 miles per charge, but it will still take you confidently deep into
the wilderness trails. If you're looking to spend days out on the trail on a single charge, then
Delfast is the perfect ride-hard or die-hard bike. If e-bikes were super-heroes, the Theos F
Series by Kellys would be the Incredible Hulk. Nicknamed the game-changer, the Kellys
Theos F series is the first full-suspension e-bike built with the super-strong material
thermoplastic hybrid steel-carbon composite.
The Slovakia-based company Kelly's has certainly
set the bar high for strength and durability. Without sacrificing weight increases that can
drain battery life, the bike is manufactured with advanced robots. It boasts 200% more strength and
durability than any competitor in today's market. There is currently no word on when this beast
will crash its way onto the e-bike scene, but best estimates put its release
in the latter part of 2021. There is not a day that goes by that something
new isn't making e-biking an ever more attractive way of getting around. Ebikes are here to make
their mark on the very culture of our world. We hope you enjoyed the video
because the ride is just beginning.
