Over the weekend we at High Country E Bikes were quoted in the local Salt Lake City, Utah news. KSL, the local news station added an article on their website featuring the top 6 places to buy electric bicycles in Utah. We were honored to be named in that list.
As we are quoted as saying, the Salt Lake City, Utah area is a prime place outdoor sports. And we have the largest collection of e bikes in the state.
Electric Biking in Salt Lake City
There are a lot of great places for high-adventure sports in the state. A lot of residents of Salt Lake City like to travel down to fun and sunny places, like Moab to enjoy off-road e biking.
Great Downhill Mountain Bike Racing
With the ski-slopes so close-by, it’s a prime place for downhill mountain-riding. Many high-performance riders are switching from conventional bikes to electric bicycles.
More and More E Bike Commuters
We sell a lot of electric road bikes to various riders that like to commute or want something simple and fun for riding on the paved Jordan River Trail. Although e bikes are more expensive than traditional bikes, we have a few road bikes for under than $2,000, making them great ways to test out the technology.
Haibike, one of our top brands, has been building e bikes since 1995. They pioneered the technology. Since that time many brands, including big name bicycle brands, like Trek and Raleigh have joined the movement.
2014 Electric Bikes
2014 was a pivotal year for e bike manufactures. The quality of electric bike technology and the motors they use took a huge leap.
Big names like Bosch entered the industry in 2010, building some of the most popular e bike motors. The motors on electric bikes are constantly increasing in range. We see Haibikes with Yamaha motors going as far as 90-miles on a charge.
Electric Bicycles Must Be Experienced
We can explain how e bikes work, but they’re the kind of thing that must be experienced to fully understand. When you ride with pedal-assist motors with special torque sensors, the power systems are so sophisticated that you’ll feel like you’re doing all the work–except with bionic legs.
