Okay. So, best electric bike for losing weight. Something that is a myth out there I've heard is that you can't lose weight on electric bikes. It's actually the contrary. Electric bikes are so great for losing weight for a multitude of reasons. One, it can help you push your body farther than you would push on a standard bike. When you have that motor, you can actually ride farther and know that you have the motor to get back. So it may allow you to push harder. In addition, I'm seeing electric bikes get more and more people motivated, people that typically wouldn't ride a bike at all are now riding an electric bike. And it's definitely better than nothing.
So, when I talk about electric bikes and what's best for losing weight, I'm going to talk about some general tips on what type of electric bike you want to get if you want to lose weight. When it comes to an electric bike, there are a couple of different options that are available. In the case of sixthreezero, all of our electric bikes come with three different modes. This is true for some, not true for all. The three different modes are this. One, you can ride as a standard bike. Two, you can ride it as pedal assist, or three, you can do full throttle.
Now the key to losing weight on an electric bike is really having the option to ride it as a standard bike, or also to ride it in pedal-assist mode. Sixthreezero bikes do come equipped with a throttle. Now, in the case of losing weight, it's not going to help you much because you push the throttle and the bike just goes. No assistance is even needed from the rider. So what you're really going to want to look for in an electric bike is pedal assist. In addition to that, you're going to want a variable assistance level on the e-bike. What I mean by that is you're going to want to be able to adjust the levels that you have the motor output. In the case of sixthreezero, we have five output levels, one, two, three, four, and five. This is going to be key to anybody's weight loss journey when riding an electric bike.
What this does for you essentially is, now you have six modes on this bike. Zero, and you can actually put this into zero, and zero means that the bike will not do anything. So you can ride this bike like a normal bike. In addition to that, you can also take the battery out. So this is another thing you want to look for in an electric bike when you're trying to lose weight, is the battery removable? The reason I say that is because, on some electric bikes, the battery is not removable. And in addition to that, even if it is removable, it's very, very difficult.
So this just gives you choice and freedom. If you want to ride this like a regular bike, you can remove eight pounds of weight to allow your body to go farther and faster and work a little bit harder. But if you want the added weight for more restraint, when you're riding it as a normal bike, you can always put the battery back on very easily. You guys can't see the screen here, but level zero is riding like a normal bike. So if you're trying to lose weight, you always want that option available to you because as your body builds strength, you may decrease the amount of assistance you use.
The benefit again is that, let the bike do the work as you build the muscle, right? So for anyone that hasn't ridden in a long time, or you're scared to get back out there because you don't know how strong your legs are, or can you produce enough power to keep the bike upright? All those questions can be answered and you can tailor the assistance to your weight loss journey.
So, let's say you are just getting back into riding and you're at the very beginning of your weight loss journey. And you know, you have not worked your legs out very much at all. You can put this into level five, let the bike do the majority of the work, but your legs will still be pedaling and you'll still get through the motion. So let's say ride one, level five, do some miles, see how your legs feel. If the next ride they're sore, keep it in level five, do a couple of rides with the level five assist. Eventually, your legs aren't sore anymore. Decrease it to level four. You see where I'm going with this? Then you can go down to level three, level two, level one. So it's key that you have an electric bike with pedal assist on the weight loss journey because you can tailor your ride and do what you see fit.
In addition, you can create rides, right? You could do a ride and say, I'm going to do the first two miles without assistance. I'm going to do the next two miles with a little bit of assistance. It's sort of like using a pull-up machine at the gym, right? Anyone saw a pull-up machine? You can kneel on it and put the weights on. And you're trying to strive to get a pull-up. Sometimes you can add 90 pounds, so it helps bring your body up a little bit, but you start to build strength. And eventually, you work your way up to doing a pull-up without any weighted assistance. This bike is the same concept. Adjust it, use it, how you see fit. So, if you're trying to lose weight on an electric bike, you definitely want assistance. You want an e-bike that allows you to do pedal assistance and you want a variation from zero to five. All sixthreezero bikes come with this feature, and it's going to allow you to lose weight undoubtedly, as long as you get out there and log miles.
In terms of looking at specific styles of bikes, different frames, different things like that, you can opt for a more aggressive riding style, something where you lean forward if you really want to get more aggressive with the body and be tensing up more of your muscles while you ride. It's totally up to you. But in terms of just losing weight overall, as it comes to an electric bike, look for the assistance levels, utilize that, make sure you can go into level zero, and make sure you can remove the battery to adjust the weight as you see fit. I guarantee you, if you get out, ride three to five days a week, start to build your leg strength, do it for three months, even if it's electric, you're going to lose weight. You're going to get your body into a much better physical shape.
