E-Bikes & Bikes Customised to You
September 15, 2022
One of the major difficulties that is often associated with being a particularly tall man has to do with the fact that the world really wasn't designed with you in mind.
If you're over 6' tall or so, you run into a number of challenges almost immediately. You probably bump your head when you walk through most doorways if you're not careful. You have a hard time comfortably getting into and out of a car. You have no choice but to shop at "big and tall" stores for clothes. The list goes on and on.
Equally challenging is the fine art of finding an electric bike to meet your needs. As is true with traditional bikes, most models aren't optimized for the taller men out there. There are, however, a number of terrific electric bike options that are intended for precisely those individuals - all of which are worth a closer look for 2023.
2. Ride1Up LMT'D
Next we have the Ride1Up LMT'D, an electric bike for taller men that offers comfort and convenience in equal measure.
In addition to being designed for men up to 6' 4" in height, this Class 3 electric bike can go up to 28 MPH on pedal assist mode. If you're simply going off of the motor, that number decreases to 20 MPH.
The range on the Ride1Up LMT'D is also impressive, with the capability to go between 30 and 50 miles on a single charge. Keep in mind that this will depend on a number of factors including whether or not you are using pedal assist mode along with the weight of the person riding it. But most importantly, the model has a frame designed for maximum comfort - something that taller riders in particular will certainly appreciate.
3. Aventon Soltera
Next up we have the Aventon Soltera - an electric bike designed for taller riders up to 6' 4" in height that is also quite affordable.
This Class 2 electric bike has a 350W motor, making it ideal for situations where you want to get out and enjoy the town on a nice day. If you're planning on taking a longer trip, however, don't worry - the Aventon Soltera can carry you up to 41 miles on average with a single charge. Like the aforementioned option, this range will also vary depending on things like the weight of the rider.
The Aventon Soltera offers single speed gearing, although there is a seven speed option available depending on your needs. There are not one but five different pedal assist options for you to choose from depending on your needs. All this and the bike itself only weights 41 pounds, making it easy to transport with you when you're not actually riding it.
4. The Wing Freedom X
Another great electric bike option for taller riders is the Wing Freedom X. Wing has long been a trusted brand in the industry and this model is certainly no exception, offering a 550W motor and a design that can comfortably seat riders up to 6' 4" in height.
This model also has five different pedal assist options for you to choose from, giving you complete flexibility when it comes to the quality of the ride you're able to enjoy and how much effort you actually want to exert. One of the major factors that separates this unit from some of the others on this list has to do with the battery. Thanks to the 14ah battery, you can go up to 60 miles on a single charge on average. Note that there is also a smaller battery available that can go between 35 miles and 45 miles, making it comparable with all of the other entires on this list.
5. Rad Power RadMission
Last but not least we have the Rad Power RadMission, an electric bike with a powerful 500W motor and sophistication to spare.
This Class 2 model has an estimated range of between 24 and 45 miles, depending on all of the same factors outlined above. It offers single speed gearing for you convenience and an LED panel display so that all of the important information you need is right at your fingertips. It has a weight of 48 pounds, which actually makes it slightly heavier than a lot of the other options, though that likely won't stop your enjoyment or your convenience.
