Step-through e-bike – What is it?

The main feature of a step-through e-bike is undoubtedly the frame shape. The classic near-horizontal top tube on a classic bike is replaced with a steeper tube running from the head tube to the bottom bracket. It’s this frame shape that enables low step-through, eliminating the need to throw one leg over the top tube. Being able to comfortably mount and dismount the step-through electric bike is an obvious design advantage.

What are the advantages of a step-through e-bike?

A step-through e-bike offers the rider numerous advantages, which we have summarised below:

  • Getting on the bike is much easier with a step-through e-bike, as you do not need to lift your leg over the top tube.
  • The step-through design of an electric bike is particularly beneficial for older people, and those with impaired mobility.
  • Spontaneous stops at obstacles or traffic lights are effortless because both legs can reach the ground within seconds.
  • Step-through e-bikes now have a unisex image and are suitable for both women and men.
  • E-bikes with a low step-in have a very comfortable and upright seating position due to their special frame shape. As a rider, you sit much more comfortably than you might on a mountain bike or road bike.
  • Step-through e-bikes are sometimes equipped with a light system and a luggage rack, so riding at dusk and carrying shopping, for example, is no problem.
  • The upright seating position of these bikes allows for a more comfortable seating position meaning better posture, therefore easier on the back and joints.
  • The step-through frame provides an extra element of safety, ensuring self-confidence in urban mobility.

Is a step-through frame only suitable for women?

The historical view that men should ride a bike with a traditional top tube and that women should ride a step-through is a thing of the past. Step-through e-bikes are perfectly suitable for both men and women.

The numerous advantages of a step-through bike are clear to see, and frame choice is no longer influenced by outdated gender stereotypes. The step-through frame provides a world of possibility to anyone with impaired mobility, or for those who simply prefer a more comfortable seating position when riding a bike.
