Are Eleglide e-bikes actually any good?

If you are looking for excellent value for money, then yes they are. All Eleglide e-bike models contain highly reputable brands such as Shimano gearing and Kenda/CST tyres, mixed in with some non-branded components, such as the battery, display, motor and controller. 

Why are Eleglide Bikes so affordable?

Ultimately, the components of the e bike which drive cost is the motor, battery and brakes, and Eleglide use cost effective options for these areas. In addition, being a Chinese brand, they have all the components on their doorstep to build the bikes and ship directly into the UK. This allows Eleglide to be priced easily under the £1000 electric bike bracket, which naturally drives a lot of interest.

What are the downsides of buying an Eleglide Bike?

The main drawback is Eleglide do not have any UK repair facilities and no UK based sales representation. What this means is, if customers were to claim any issues under warranty, Eleglide would send the required spare part, but the customer would be expected to either fit themselves or use a local repair shop and borne the cost. 

Whilst not ideal, ultimately its a trade off between an affordable price vs the drawback of potentially having to pay for a few repairs down the line. What we can guarantee to our customers who purchase an Eleglide bike from us, we will always be available to answer any questions and find solutions.

So should I Buy an Eleglide Bike?

Ultimately, if you are wanting a cheap electric bike, are prepared to potentially pay a little more to maintain the upkeep, or upgrade some components, then Eleglide bikes are a fantastic option. There is no doubt the quality of the bikes should cost more than the prices offered to UK customers! 

In addition, our customers have been impressed with the quality of the Eleglide range, take a look at our customer reviews to see the positive reviews been left.

All Eleglide bikes are delivered between 3 - 7 working days and have descriptive user manuals included to allow customers to easily install the remaining parts of the bike on delivery. 

The assembly process will include installation of the front wheel, handlebars, pedals and mudguards. Our customers find the assembly instructions really easy to follow and we are always on hand to help where required.
