What is a women's electric bicycle?
What we call an electric bike for women is an EAB specifically adapted to the female morphology. Indeed, in recent years, more and more women have pointed out that they were not comfortable on their two-wheeler. Pelvic pain, non-adapted frame, difficulty to step over when wearing certain clothes, accessories that are not suitable for their use... Manufacturers have responded to their request and some have designed electric bikes for women, developed to provide the necessary riding comfort, without reducing the performance of the ebike.
What are the particularities of an electric bike for women?
If you are looking for the best electric bike for women, you must take into account these 3 criteria!
A bike with a smaller frame, handlebars and wheel size
Your electric bike for women must fit your body type and that means choosing the right frame size. Generally, these bikes have a smaller frame than the men's models and are designed differently. Indeed, the top tube of a woman's electric bike is designed for people with short torsos and long legs.
The handlebars are generally thinner in diameter and smaller in length, to allow a better grip for a female cyclist, whose hands are often smaller than those of men.
As for the size of the wheels, choose 26-inch wheels if you are between 1.50 m and 1.85 m, 27.5-inch wheels if your height is between 1.55 m and 1.90 m and finally, opt for a 29-inch wheel size if you are very tall (over 1.70 m)
Please note that the essential measurements to take before buying your used electric bike for women are: your height, your crotch height and the amplitude of your arms. Don't hesitate to use the Upway size filter, which will allow you to find bikes adapted to your size in one click.
An open frame for easy climbing
Women's electric bikes generally have no central bar. They therefore have an open frame (or "gooseneck"), which is also found on Dutch bikes for example. The reason? This type of frame is easier to step over and is designed to make climbing easier. So, even if you are wearing a skirt or a dress, you can get on your electric bike easily.
The truth is that electric bikes with an open frame can also be suitable for men. They are especially convenient for frequent stops, for example in the city.
A saddle designed for women
The main difference between a woman's electric bike and a man's model is actually the saddle. A woman's saddle is wider and shorter than a man's. There are two reasons for this: the pelvic bone structure is wider in women and the nerve endings are higher. The support on the saddle is therefore different for the two sexes.
If you share your bike with a man, there is a good compromise: unisex saddles. They are not as comfortable as a saddle designed specifically for women, but they are still worth it! Finally, it is also possible to change the original saddle with a saddle for women. For example, there are saddles that allow full contact with the buttocks.
What is the difference between a woman's and a man's electric bicycle?
As you can see, the best electric bike for you is the one you feel comfortable on. It differs from a men's model mainly by the shape of its seat, the geometry of its frame and its size. Most electric bicycles are unisex, but if you use them on a daily basis, or to practice sports on a regular basis, then it is in your best interest to go for a woman's electric bicycle, in order to improve your riding comfort.
This is a good thing, more and more manufacturers are designing models specially designed to match the type of driving and female morphology! In this field, the Liv brand brand stands out. Based in Taiwan and developed by the world leader in bicycles GiantIt is designed specifically for women, by women.
