Manual biking can be super fun and rewarding, it's great for leisure trips and exercising alike. The issue is, it's not very practical for long rides or trips if you're not looking to work up a sweat, not to mention it's extremely tiring. This is where an electric bike or an e-bike is extremely handy. Some can travel up to 25 or even 45 km per hour, so they can get you quickly and efficiently to your destination.

It's an excellent way of keeping the aspects of biking you love, but adding speed and ease to it. They're a great emission-free form of quick transportation, and most are pretty energy efficient, so if you were looking for a new way to commute to work, this might just be it!

However, some e-bikes carry premium and state-of-the-art features, which usually come with a pretty heft price tag. Nonetheless, there are plenty of budget options out there, and in our guide, we've included a wide range of price options for the best women's electric bikes.

Just make sure you leave enough budget for some safety kit - a helmet, cycling shoes, as well as bright lights.

What is the difference between a women's electric bike and a men's electric bike?

In terms of features such as motor, breaks, or the charge time, the electric bikes will be virtually the same. The largest discrepancy is the fit and size, as women are usually smaller than men and require a smaller frame, fit, and size.

Below we have compiled a chart of what size frame bike you should buy depending on your bike.

Height : between 4ft 10 inches – 5ft 2in, Bike frame size should be between 148 – 158cm

Height : between 5ft 2 inches - 5ft 6in, Bike frame size should be between 158 – 168cm

Height : between 5ft 6 inches – 5ft 10in, Bike frame size should be between 168 – 178cm

Height : between 5ft 10 inches - 6ft 1in, Bike frame size should be between 178 – 185cm

According to, "You can ride an electric bike if you’re 14 or over, as long as it meets certain requirements.

"These electric bikes are known as ‘electrically assisted pedal cycles’ (EAPCs). You don't need a licence to ride one and it doesn't need to be registered, taxed or insured."
