Cruiser electric bikes are great for riding on light trails, commuting, and casual riding. Our bikes have swept back handlebars with a relaxed upright riding position that relieves stress on the lower back making it easier to ride for longer.

Things to look for in a Cruiser Electric Bike
Upright Riding Position
An upright riding position is a great way to reduce strain on your wrists and lower back. If the bike geometry has you leaning forward, all your weight ends up on your wrists. While this may be best for speed, it doesn't make a comfortable ride.
Instead look for swept back handle bars where you don't have to stretch or lean forward to grip. This means you don't lean forward and you can keep your back straight. When your spine is straight it reduces any strain you might feel when cycling.
An added benefit is you can look around more while you ride. Which is safer and allows you to enjoy the scenery.
Step Through Frames
Step-through bikes offer riders the most upright riding position and will also be the easiest for riders to mount and dismount by simply stepping through the frame instead of swinging your leg over. They are a fantastic option for riders that don't have a complete range of motion, and are particularly great for older riders or riders who have a difficult time lifting their leg over a traditional bike frame.
Larger Comfortable Saddles
You want to be comfortable when riding your bike. Your saddle or bike seat plays a huge role in this. Look for saddles that have cushioning but still provide support. Keep in mind the first few times you go riding you are likely to suffer a little discomfort, until your body gets used to sitting in a different way.
What is a Cruiser Bike Best For?
Cruiser eBikes are designed for comfort, and feature a step-thru frames and forward pedal positions designed for full leg extension to reduce strain on your knees, hips, and ankles.
They are ideal for both city riding and some light trail excursions. If you want to hit a national park dirt trail, a cruiser is a better bike for the job than a beach cruiser. We also recommend them for low-speed, low-impact rides on both dirt paths and paved bike lanes. Since they have tough tires, they’re also good for riders who know there are a few potholes on their route.
