Electric bike carriers
Electric bikes are getting more and more popular. In-turn many people are choosing to take their electric bike on holiday with them. This is now possible by adding an electric bike carrier on your towbar.
Transporting your electric bike on your bike carrier is getting more and more popular. A strong towbar is mounted at a practical height, which offers stability which can generally take the weight of two/three Electric bikes. It’s not a given that you can load an electric bike on any bike carrier. On average the weight of an electric bike is around 6kg more than a normal bike. The difference is partly down to the added battery pack and motor. The battery pack on the E-bike weighs around 3kg, between each E-bike there will be some weight difference depending on the type. For your information many of the electric bikes on the market come with a removable battery, meaning you can remove this from the bike to reduce the weight. In-turn this can be very beneficial when looking at the total weight.
Due to the weight difference for electric bikes, we recommend purchasing a bike carrier which has been specially designed to transport electric bikes and has been certified for 30kg per bike.
