1. Greater Range
Electric bikes or eBikes typically have a longer range than electric scooters, which means you can travel further on a single charge. This makes electric bikes a more practical option for longer commutes or rides.
The Gazelle Medeo T9 has a range up to 60 Miles and has a top speed of 20 Mph making it perfect for getting around town or commuting to and from class or work.
2. More Comfortable
Electric bikes are designed for longer rides, and are typically more comfortable than electric scooters. They have larger wheels and better suspension, which help absorb bumps and provide a smoother ride. The Gazelle Medeo T9 comes with a 50mm suspension fork but we also have models with fork travel ranging up to 80mm like the Ultimate C380+ giving you the option to choose how comfortable and luxurious you want to make your ride.
3. Better Performance
Electric bikes typically have more powerful motors and can handle steeper hills than electric scooters. This makes them a better option for riders who need more power and performance. Gazelle bikes come in class 1(20 Mph) or class 3(28 Mph) making getting from point A to B a breeze.
4. More Versatile
Electric bikes can be used for a wider range of activities than electric scooters. For example, you can use an electric bike for commuting, exercise, or recreational riding.
Electric bikes are generally considered safer than electric scooters because they are more stable and easier to control. They also have better brakes, which can help prevent accidents. Larger wheels and suspension smooth out the road surfaces and allow more compliance with unexpected bumps or imperfections. All Gazelle bikes come with suspension making your ride both more comfortable and out of harms way.
6. Longer Lifespan
Electric bikes are built to last, and can often be used for many years without requiring significant maintenance. This means that they can provide a better return on investment than electric scooters over the long term. All Gazelle ebikes come with a 10 year warranty on the frame and 2 years on all the Bosche electronics and other parts.
7. More Sustainable
Electric bikes are more sustainable than electric scooters because they use less energy per mile traveled. Also for the reasons stated above they have an overall longer lifespan, this means that they have a smaller carbon footprint and can help reduce air pollution and climate change.
Overall, while electric scooters have their advantages, electric bikes are generally a better option for riders who need more range, comfort, performance, versatility, safety, lifespan, and sustainability.
