If you are looking for more power than the average electric bike but worried about the legalities of such choice, the Cyclotricity Stealth 500W 21AH Electric Bike is one of rare choices to consider. The unique dual power system integrated in this e-bike allows the user to swap between two modes depending on whether you are on-road or off-road, enabling you to unlock the full power where it is safe and legal to do so.
The UK/EU regulations dictate that an e-bike must not exceed the rated power of 250W to be road-legal. Which is not great news for the thrill-seekers, power hungry among us who want to have the occasional fun off-road yet still be able to ride sensibly and legally on-road. A purchase of the common high powered electric bike will come with its legal implications. On the other hand, the practicality of a road-legal e-bike means giving up the extra power/speed one could enjoy off-road. So which do you choose?

Cyclotricoty electric bikes offer an incredible energy-saving, alternative form of transport. To illustrate, the same amount of energy it takes to power a 100w light bulb for an evening would be enough to power their ebike for 20-30 miles! In fuel terms, the energy efficiency of their ebike would be the equivalent of 1500-2000 miles per gallon! No car, motorcycle or moped can come close to such staggering efficiency.
