5 Best Electric Bikes Under $1000 (Mountain ebikes)

1. ANCHEER 500W Electric Bike 27.5” (price $900-$1000)

best Electric Bikes Under $1000 by ANcheer

Here comes the first ebike on our list. This electric bike is from a popular e-bike brand Ancheer, known to produce high-performance ebikes in different price segments.

I have put this particular model priced under $1000 on top of the list. And, here are the reasons:

  1. This Ancheer ebike comes with a powerful motor of 500W. Bigger number shows better power of your electric bike. There are some ebikes in the market priced between $900 to $1000 and still have a 350W motor. Thanks to Ancheer having a 500W powerful motor.
  2. The second thing that grabbed our attention is number of speed and it has a total of 24 of it. The more gears the more options you have while cycling in different types of route and hills. You will usually find ebikes having 7 to 21 number of speeds in the price range of $900 to $1000.
  3. The third most important thing to note down is it wheel size which is 27.5 inches. Wider wheel size means a better speed due to rotational inertial. The another size variant at this price range is 26 inch, that is not in the case of ebike, you get a bigger wheel size with this particular Ancheer model.
  4. Brand value of Ancheer is very good. The market response seems to be awesome for this ebike and the Ancheer brand. One of the highest-selling ebikes in the market.

Here are some other common features of this ebike:

  • The Ancheer ebike is powered with a 48 V 10Ah battery having a total capacity of 480Wh. The more capacity the better the mileage. Also, the more volts your battery has, the better the speed of your electric bike.
  • The ebike comes with front and rear disc brakes ensuring your safety while your ride. If you go with the upper price bands, you will have hydraulic brakes. In this $1000 price segment disc brake is completely justified.
  • With those dual disc brakes you also get a max speed of 22mph and a mileage of 38 miles in pedal assist and 22 miles in throttle mode. Great deal!
  • The charging time of the battery is 6 hours which is also a decent speed at this price range. But can be improved as this is a very important factor for daily and long-distance riders.
  • The e-bike’s total weight is also decent and weighs around 53 lbs, which is easy for portability and comes in handy.

2. VIVI 500W, 27.5 Inch Electric Mountain (price $900-$1000)

best Electric Bikes Under $1000 by Vivi

Here is our second-best ebike on the list of best electric bikes under $1000. And, this electric bike is from the VIVI brand from its 500W motor variant.

The numbers and specifications in the product description of this ebike speaking a lot more about its pros than cons, including price, battery, motor, gears, etc.

Out of the 5 bikes that we have listed here, we thought of putting this ebike in the second position in the list.

This is why we thought of keeping it on the second spot:

  1. The first thing is that this ebike has 21 number-of-speeds compared with other bikes in the market still having 7 number-of-speeds in the price $900-$1000 price range.
  2. Other than 21 speeds, the best part with this ebike is that it has a whopping 25MPH max speed, topping our list of bikes in the max speed category.
  3. You get a 48 V 10.4Ah battery with this ebike with a little increase in your battery storage capacity. Every little thing matters. This is the second-best bike in terms of battery capacity in our list of best ebikes under $1000.
  4. As, I said many ebikes are still delivering ebikes with 26-inch wheel size in the price range of $900-$1000, but this ebike by VIVI has a 27.5-inch wheel size, which means an improved speed of your electric bike.

Here are some other common features of this ebike:

  • This VIVI ebike comes with a 500W powered motor giving your ebike more power (load capacity, speed, etc) compared to 350W electric bikes.
  • The dual (front and rear) disc brakes make your rider safer by reducing braking distance.
  • With a 48 V 10.4Ah battery, you get a decent mileage of up to 31 miles at the incredible max speed of 25mph.
  • The total charging time of the battery of this electric bike is less than 6 hours.

Note: Please check with this e-bike’s weight and payload as we were unable to figure it out.

3. ECOTRIC Mountain EBike Electric Bicycle (price $900-$1000)

This ebike by Ecotric is on the third spot on our list of best ebikes under $1000. But is also one the last spot on the list of best electric bikes priced in the range of $900 to $1000. Last, but not least.

This is why we thought of keeping it on the third spot:

The ebike has a mileage of 33.55 miles which is a little greater than the ebike we have listed on the second spot. But not to forget, the mileage depends on many different factors including, use of the throttle, pedal-assist, rider weight, route, etc.

Here are some of the common features this ebike has:

  • A 500W motor that will make your ride more powerful.
  • A 36V/12.5AH battery equals to total 468Wh of battery capacity or storage for a great mileage.
  • The ebike comes with a dual brake system to make your ride safe and sound.
  • On a 26 inch wheel, it can hit a max speed of 20mph with a battery charging time of 6 to 8 hours.
  • The electric bike has a total of 7 number-of-speeds and weighs around 66 lbs.

But we were a little disappointed to see the price of the ebike compared to the features it has, particularly when other ebikes in the same price range have enhanced features.

Note that the pros and cons mentioned below are based on price justification compared to features and the price of other ebikes in the same price range.

Pros:

  • Decent mileage

Cons:

  • A bit over priced compared to the features
  • Comparately a heavier bike
  • Has only 26 inch wheel at this price range
  • Has only 36V battery, not so good for speed compared to a 48V battery

Our rating:

Please note that the last two bikes are from our low-priced ebike category which is priced between $800 to $900. So, compare the features based on this price segment. It will be a little unfair if you directly compare the features with our other top 3 high-priced ebike category mentioned above.

Here are some of the USP of this ebike that had made a spot on our list:

  1. The ebike by Eahora comes with a mind-blowing 48V 14Ah battery. The reason we addressed it is mind-blowing because at the price point of $900 it has great battery storage defeating all other 3 high-price ebikes mentioned above. Woohoo!!
  2. It has a great max speed of 23 mph and is on the second spot on the list of best max-speed ebikes out of 5 best electric bikes under $1000 we have mentioned. Another great deal.

best Electric Bikes Under $1000 by Speedrid
