Are E Bikes Cheating? | EMBN Gets A Workout

Published on March 25th 2018


Most E Bike riders will probably have been told that they're cheating by other mountain bikers, but is this the case? Is riding an E bike even a work out at all? We gave Neil a heart rate monitor and a power meter and sent him to investigate! Subscribe: Our shop: Neil's conducting a test over two laps of one of his favourite loops of the Forest of Dean. The first lap will be on his XC bike, a 100mm travel 22lbs hardtail that climbs like a mountain goat. The second lap will be on his 170mm travel full sus E bike which will definitely take the advantage on the downhills. Let's see how that translates into effort levels and find out just how hard Neil works out on both bikes! 🎵Warren - Netzy - Epidemic Sounds 🎵 🎵Lowman - Netzy - Epidemic Sounds 🎵 🎵Zombie raiders - Wave saver - Epidemic Sounds 🎵 If you'd like to contribute captions and video info in your language, here's the link 👍 More videos...
