It's streamlined and stylish; it's lightweight and forward-thinking. The cool urban commuter is crafted from carbon fiber with cleverly integrated front and rear lights. Designed by three-time Tour de France winner Greg LeMond, it delivers relaxed racing geometry for easy handling and maneuverability—all in just 26 pounds. Wide tires provide a smooth ride and a Mahle X35+ Smart E-Bike System provides all of the features and characteristics you want, plus ride data and tracking via the Mahle mobile app (which pairs nicely with Strava).

The Gravel Bike
This is an electric bike that doesn't look or feel like an e-bike. It's light and agile, it can handle daily commutes or more adventurous trail rides on rugged terrain with ease. The Mahle drive system uses a 25-watt rear hub motor that's easily engaged when you need it and imperceptible when you don't. The integrated top tube controller lets you toggle through powering on the bike, selecting your assist level and checking your battery charge, all at the touch of a button—which keeps the handlebars clean and uncluttered.

The Bargain Bike
Especially if you're just dipping your toe into the world of electric bikes, you want one that's reliable and not too expensive, right? Propella's direct-to-consumer single-speed bike is the best cheap bike you can buy. It's not fancy, but it's still pretty good looking and has trustworthy components, such as a Panasonic battery and Shimano disc brakes. Plus, at just 35 pounds, it's fairly light for an e-bike. But just know that it ships partially assembled, so you may need a bike shop to assist with putting it together.

The Mountain Bike
Specialized's first pedal-assisted mountain bike takes design cues from the brand's most popular bikes and adds in industry-leading tech that gives you the power to ride more trails. It has a rigid, asymmetric frame that's longer in the front, to make pounding the downhills smoother (and safer), while the 500-watt motor's Smart Control system makes it easier to maneuver on tough terrain, and uses less battery power. The Mission Control app lets you easily custom-tune nearly every aspect of the bike, from monitoring your power use to performing basic system diagnoses.
Turbo Levo Comp,
$5,950 by Specialized
These retro-styled cruisers have all the old school charm but are supercharged with one of the best-rated motors on the market. The 48V battery allows for plenty of power to be delivered to the motor when needed (like climbing a hill with a heavy load). The aluminum frame conceals all the wiring to keep the look as classic as possible. The whole bike can be customized and styled to your needs and tastes.
