The simple climbing skill of electric MTB

The simple climbing skill of electric MTB

You hardly can not image that modern electric MTB like a versatile versatile, which is capable of descending speed when it need to downhill and yet able to ascend the steepest and most technical of climbs. Chances are you’ve optimised your bike for going down but could your bike climb better? Of course, your bike have a motor but a more efficient climbing position will allow you to ascend trails that previously meant pushing and then get to the top with more energy to release on shredding back down. So here is a question for you, are you making the most out of your electric MTB’s abilities before? If not, this post will tell you the electric MTB climb skills that will enable you to deal with the climb with ease and confidence.

Challenge climb fun

How to make the most out of your electric MTB’s climb abilities? To get more climbing control, you need to improve traction. It means that you need to buy a great electric MTB for climbing. Recommending you some of electric bicycle. There are two kind eMTB you can choose, which are fat tire electric mountain bike(A6AH26F) and mountain e-bike(A6AH26). Both use 26-inch tire, especially the fat tire is 26*4.0-inch which is low rolling resist and superior grip, and even mountain e-bike can opt 27.5-inch and 29-inch wheel for those high height people. If you stress the shock absorption of bike, why not try to this full suspension electric MTB(A6AH26-S).  Which one do you want depend on your climb terrains and riding needs.

Saddle height

Usually, electric MTB saddle height according to rider height. Therefore, incorrect saddle height can literally break you. Many riders run their saddle too low as they feel that they are better able to put their feet down quickly, but having your seat too low or too high and fully extending your leg while pedalling, will be inefficient and uncomfortable at best and, left unchecked, can cause damage to your knees and back in particular.

All of e-bike has saddle seatpost design, so the basic rule when setting the most efficient saddle height for climbing is to adjust the seatpost, so that if you put your heel on the pedal when the crank arm is at the bottom of the stroke, your leg is straight but not locked out. With your heel still in place, pedal a few turns and if your heel breaks contact with the pedal then the saddle is too high. Now, when you naturally put the ball of your foot back on the pedal, your leg will have the correct bend at the knee. A correct seat height make you have a comfort a riding position and also protect your knee and back on whole riding trip.

Bar and stem height

Electric mtb’s bar and stem height are also improtence. Having your bars too far forward and low will cause the rear wheel will spin out and you will find it more difficult to get the front wheel off the ground. Bars set-up too high and far-back will reduce your control of the front wheel and cause the bike to rear up like a stallion on the climbs. If your bike wheelies or wanders off-line when you pedal uphill, you need to get your weight forward: a small increase in stem length will help the front wheel track better, without affecting the handling of the bike going down. Wide bars can also help on the climbs as they allow you to put more weight over the front wheel and give you more leverage when you have to muscle up steep sections. If you weight high, by sliding the saddle forward on the seat post clamp, you shift your weight away from the rear wheel and over the bottom bracket, traction and control will be increased, especially on steep and loose terrain.

Your riding position

One of the key factors in how a bike climbs when the gradient increases is your riding position. An upright and central position will be more comfortable for climbing steeper trails and give you more control on technical trails. The current geometry trend for longer reaches and steep seat angles pushes your weight forward, into a centralised position over the bottom bracket, pushing your posterior away from the centre of the rear wheel, giving you more traction at the rear and keeping the front wheel from coming up as you ascend. However, no matter what electric MTB you are riding, there are a number of other factors to consider maximising your climbing ability.

This post just share you a few climbing simple skills, and technical climbing isn’t just about the bike, the rider also need to interpret the terrain. If you are looking for an electric MTB which one is match you like, welcome to visit our Official Website.
