From June to August this year leading European E-MOUNTAINBIKE Magazine conducted their Readers Choice survey asking their readers to choose what electric mountain bike they would buy next. They also asked a myriad of questions about preferred motors, specs and accessory brands.
4,011 readers responded, from 56 nations. The results were reported in two data cuts – International (all readers) and just Germany/ Austria / Switzerland.
An overwhelming 50% of readers of E-MOUNTAINBIKE Magazine chose Haibike as the electric bike brand they are most likely to buy for their next electric mountain bike; and 60% chose Bosch as their preferred motor.
The results are very interesting!
Best e-mountain bike brand – Haibike
Here are the results showing the #1 brand to the #10 brand, as voted by readers. You can see that Haibike is streets ahead as the preferred brand receiving about 50% of the votes, with Specialized a way behind but still a clear second with 17%.
These results provide two really interesting insights:
- The distribution. It is rare in any survey or vote to have such an overwhelming leader – ask the prime minister! Haibike secures half of all the votes, a testimony to their innovation, quality, performance and design.
- The brands that made the Top 10. In a category that has seen a lot of manufacturers recently enter the market, this gives those who are considering getting an electric mountain bike a good guide on where to start looking.
Best electric bike motor – Bosch
Bosch also receives overwhelming support as the best motor with 60%. Yamaha comes in next with about 20% and then Brose.
