What Are the Speeds of Electric Bicycles?

Electric Bicycles vary in speed depending on whether they use a throttle or pedal-assist. Sometimes there’s a fear that e bikes are too fast. But it really depends on the type of electric-powered bike that you’ve chosen.

Electric road bikes can go as fast as 20-mph on the street. You don’t need to worry about the speed of many road e bikes. Some have faster modes where you should be careful where you ride.

If you’re worried about going too fast, you can always purchase a slower e bike. Kids e bikes can’t go any faster than 15-mph. And most adult electric bicycles can go a maximum speed of about 20-mph.

Speed Laws of E Bicycles

By law, bicycles aren’t allowed to go more than 20 mph. Because of this, most e bikes are manufactured to max out at about that speed.

Some e bikes can go faster than 20-mph. We will warn customers when an electric bicycle goes faster than what is street-legal. Many riders will take their fast e bike off-road, or onto a dirt road where traffic laws don’t apply.
