Riding an e-bike offers you a path to a healthier life and more freedom.

Are you too young for an e-bike?

The truth about e-bikes

Many people think of e-bikes as a passive form of transport. But the opposite is the case. Studies , such as those from the Hannover Medical School, show that e-bikes are just as challenging and effective a form of training as conventional cycling . Dr. Hedwig Theda Boeck explains: "Muscles and the cardiovascular system are challenged almost as much when riding a pedelec as when riding a conventional bike."

Are e-bikes as healthy as regular bikes?

Health benefits

Studies show that e-bike riders experience similar health benefits as traditional cyclists. Here are a number of these facts:

Improve aerobic fitness:

Regular e-cycling increases your aerobic fitness, which has a positive effect on your cardiovascular system - including improved maximum oxygen uptake and increased performance.

Protect your joints:

Unlike other sports, riding an e-bike puts little strain on your joints, which also makes it suitable for people with disabilities.

Strengthening the muscles:

When pedaling the e-bike, muscles in the legs, arms and torso are activated, which leads to an overall strengthening of the body.

Reduce stress and improve mental health:

The joy of cycling and exercise in the fresh air has been proven to have positive effects on your mental health. It can reduce stress, lift your mood and increase your general well-being.

Benefits For All

The pedal assistance of e-bikes opens up new mobility options for people with different physical abilities and limitations. Thanks to the "electric tailwind", even people with pre-existing medical conditions or those who do not feel quite so fit can experience the joy of cycling and benefit from the health advantages.
