How to find your perfect electric bike?
This 2022 brings a new year of new goals and challenges. Many first-time riders and even long-term cyclists can be looking for a new e-bike to get in shape and improve their morning commute.
Our mission at Axon Rides is to bring you the absolute best electric bikes on the market. Every one of our foldable, portable e-bikes is purpose-built with your comfort and convenience in mind.
But with many Axon E-bikes to choose from, how do you decide which one is the best fit for you? Here are some questions you should consider to help you find your perfect Axon E-bike.
How will be using your bike?
Many foldable electric bikes are great for the morning commute to work or university. You can carry them easily in the car or on public transport and then store them under your desk. They are perfect for city travel. But some e-bikes are better for leisure rides around the countryside, as they can only be used on private land. That’s right; some e-bikes come with government legislation.
Do you have a licence?
If your bike is considered a twist and go, you will need to be registered, insured and taxed (Vehicle Excise Duty) as a motor vehicle. You will need a suitable driving licence and wear a motorcycle safety helmet. Otherwise, the bike will be illegal to use on a public road, pavement, cycle lane or Bridgeway.
However, if you don’t wish to register the bike, insure, tax or have a driving licence, you can still ride the electric bike in some locations. They can only be ridden on private land with the landowner's permission.

What is your price range?
An e-bike is an investment and should be treated as such. As they are an electric form of transport, an electric bike can be slightly more expensive than some traditional bikes. However, the Axon range does vary in price.
We offer bikes starting from £999 (AXON ECO and AXON ECO-S). The more powerful bikes, such as the Axon Pro Max, is around £2,000. Therefore, when deciding the bike for you, you should consider how much you are willing to spend compared to the number of features you want.
