Congratulations to Haibike. Voted world's best eMTB brand in 2018, for the fourth year in a row, and Bosch is voted best motor again.
Each year E-MOUNTAINBIKE Magazine asks their readers 1. which brands create the best E-MTBs and 2. which brand you are most likely to buy? In a heavily contested market, Haibike has been voted the #1 brand for the past four years.
"...regardless of how packed the market is, certain brands are able to distinguish themselves from the masses, defiantly taking their products to the next level in terms of innovation, quality, performance and design to ultimately overshadow the competition." E-MOUNTAINBIKE Magazine
In this year's survey 10,622 riders from over 79 countries participated. Given that just 4,011 participated in 2016 it is an indication of the rise in popularity of electric mountain bikes!
The table below sets out the rankings for the past four years.

The survey also asks readers to vote on the best brands for motors and a range of accessories. Bosch maintains its #1 position again this year and Fox and Shimano take out top honours for best forks and brakes.
The Tweed Valley is stunning. Beautiful beaches. Coastal ranges. Lush green valleys. With the Tweed Valley Rail Trail nearing completion it will soon become a major cycling destination. Don’t wait though. There are many excellent ride routes. Stephen shares one of his favourite day rides with us.
Michael rides an Orbea Gain F30 for his 65km commute. He shares his stats on how his ebike vs non-ebike commute compares (Hint: its not what you think). When we asked about battery range, the most common question with road ebikes, his response leaves you in no doubt there's plenty in the tank.
If you have seen Nick's brief YouTube video of his first ride impressions of the 2020 Rocky Mountain Instinct you will already know that he was blown away by that first ride. With a few more riding hours on more varied terrain he analyzes why they are so capable and fun and why he thinks they are the best e-mountain bike yet to come to Australia.
