Who should get a lightweight electric bike?

A lightweight electric bike makes sense for anyone because it is sure to make your ride more comfortable. A light weight means you’ll be able to ride longer distances, and handle your bike more easily in general. Your bike will be easier to maneuver, and you’ll really notice the difference on steep inclines.

And if you need to carry your pedelec, you’ll definitely appreciate the lighter build. A lightweight electric bike is also easier to handle when you need to put it on a bike rack or carry it up or down steps.

All in all, we think any cyclist can benefit from a light electric bike.

When does an electric bike count as lightweight?

Electric bikes and pedelecs haven’t been left behind in terms of technical advances. Even though motor-powered bikes were comparatively heavy when they first came onto the market, they’ve turned into true flyweights at this point. Modern electric bikes have really benefited from the advances in lightweight, sturdy materials. Carbon, for example, is used more and more frequently when producing light electric bikes and their parts. These materials, along with innovative frame designs, mean that electric bikes under 45 lbs are no longer a rarity.

What effect do the battery and motor have on the weight of an electric bike?

Without a doubt, the heaviest parts of an electric bike are the motor and accompanying battery. Their combined weight can easily total 10-20 lbs. These essential parts of an electric bike have a major influence on the bike’s overall weight. Depending on how powerful the motor is and which capacity the battery offers, the weight can vary significantly. For example, a battery with 400 Wh weighs in at around 5.5 lbs. That’s a lot less than a battery with 800 Wh, which would weigh about 11 lbs.

How does Canyon measure the weight of their electric bikes?

Canyon lists the weights for all its bikes with the frame size M and without pedals. You’ll find the weight listed on the product page for each of our bikes.

Which lightweight electric bikes does Canyon offer?

Electric bike under 40 lbs – The Grail:ON

Most light electric bikes that weigh less than 40 pounds fall into the categories of electric road bike, e-gravel bikes and electric fitness bikes. A low total weight is especially helpful when you’re riding your electric bike on the street or gravel trails, because it will get you from A to B faster. A light electric bike will let you ride up steep gradients easily, and the handling will be better overall. Moreover, a lower total weight increases your e-bike’s range. That means you’ll be able to cover longer distances on a single battery charge.

If you love the feel of gravel trails under your wheels, our super-light Grail:ON is the right choice for you. With its powerful Bosch motor combined with the 500 Wh battery, the Grail:ON will give you up to 75 miles of pure e-gravel fun.

Electric bikes under 55 lbs

City e-bikes make a perfect daily ride in the city or the countryside – to bring your kids to daycare, do the grocery shopping, or make a short commute to the office. If you use your bike to get around every day, it’s a good idea to get a lightweight electric bike. The light weight makes it more comfortable and easier to handle. A light electric bike under 55 lbs gives you a longer range with pedal assist and is also easier to park and push. You’ll appreciate the low weight on steep inclines. For daily use and commuting to the office, a step-through electric bike is ideal - there’s no need to lift your leg over a horizontal bar, which makes it the perfect choice for older people.

If that’s what you’re looking for, the Precede:ON is an ideal option. It’s a modern city e-bike that weighs in at only about 48 pounds. And it’s not only light – it’s also available with a step-over diamond frame or a step-through frame.

Next to the Precede:ON, the Spectral:ON and the Torque:ON are also known for their light weight. If you’re looking for an electric bike for adventures on rough trails as well as for your daily use, the Spectral:ON is the perfect solution that combines both expectations. You want to reach your best downhill performance? Choose the Torque:ON with its 500 Wh Shimano EP8 motor and its light batteries. Enjoy maximum power despite minimal
