These ebikes are on the lighter side. Heavier than a traditional acoustic bicycle but relatively light compared to your high torque ebikes. The relationship between weight and power is inextricable. You can only trim weight off an ebike with a design that includes a smaller battery and less powerful motor. If you want your ebike to handle closer to a typical bike and be easier to lift then a lightweight ebike may be the answer. As always we recommend test riding in store to make the right decision.
