Electric Road Bikes In Rank Order

Electric Road Bikes of Highest Distinction

Electric road bikes scoring between an 86 and 100 are designated as "Electric Road Bikes of Highest Distinction". With "very good" eBikes rating in the 60 range, understand our structured scoring system sets a very high bar for this highest grouping. Very few electric road bikes qualify for this class.

NONE CURRENTLY


Outstanding Electric Road Bikes

eRoad bikes scoring between 71 and 85 are awarded the Tower eBike status of "Outstanding Electric Road Bike". While this is the 2nd tier in our classification, these electric road bikes are what most consumers and manufacturers consider very premium quality bikes.

Very Good Electric Road Bikes

Electric road bikes scoring between 56 and 70 on Tower's 100-point eBike scale are considered "Very Good Electric Road Bikes". Understand the eBike market has an extremely wide range in terms of quality so we use the full breadth of our 100-point scale to rate electric bikes effectively. For this reason, a score in the 60s is still considered a very good electric road bike. This isn't like high school letter grading where a 60% is a low D. A 60 on our scale is still a very good quality electric bike.  If you get something in the rating range, you will still have a good electric road bike but you are getting close to the distinction line of what separates quality e-bikes from the rest.

NONE CURRENTLY


Mediocre Electric Road Bikes

eRoad bikes scoring between 41 and 55 on Tower's 100-point electric bike rating scale and what we consider to be "Mediocre Electric Road Bikes". While you might be able to pick these up for what seems like a good deal, usually with this classification of electric road bikes there are some major tradeoffs on the quality, performance, and durability front.

NONE CURRENTLY


Electric Road Bikes Not Recommended

Electric road bikes scoring between 0 and 40 on Tower's 100-point electric bike rating scale are what we consider to be "Not Recommended Electric Road Bikes". Our rating system is a very structured rating system designed by eBike mechanics with decades of experience in the traditional bicycle and eBike industry, so when in addition to getting an electric road bike with a lot of questionable components and quality trade-offs, when you see a bike in this classification group you can expect to have a lot more regular maintenance issues to deal with it.
