The E-MOUNTAINBIKE Print Edition 2020 is our third annual edition and ultimate test bible, with which we aim to help you choose the perfect eMTB. More than 250 pages of extensive buyers advice, tons of eMTB know-how as well as reviews of the 35 most exciting eMTBs and the 7 best motors. You’ll also find many helpful tips and a guide to the most exciting eMTB trends – all of this is wrapped in a high quality print format. Our magazine is aimed at experienced eMTBers and beginners alike.

Spread over 140 pages, our "Reviews, Tech and Know-how" chapter contains way more than "just" test reports of 35 bikes. Our extensive buyers’ advice section provides you with valuable in-depth knowledge about e-MTBs and tells you what to look out for when buying your new eMTB – and what to avoid! In addition there's also an exclusive group test of the 7 best E-MTB motors.

Another focal point of this year's Print Edition is the "New Generation" chapter. Here we celebrate the diversity of eMTBing and explore new types of riders and bikes: Light E-MTBs feel as if they had no motor, step-through off-road bikes make eMTBs accessible to a wider public and SUV eMTBs and cargo bikes enable a new way of life. We’re also dedicating a few pages to children-specific eBikes and equipment. Moreover, you'll find insightful articles on connectivity, smart software solutions and modern theft protection.

If you need an injection of motivation and inspiration, we’ll show how to find the most exciting rides and tours on Komoot to have even more fun on your eMTB. And if your dog doesn't seem to get tired these days, take him along on an eMTB ride – it works! Learn how to make it a more pleasurable and safe experience – for both of you.

With its timeless stories and elaborate format, the Print Edition is a must-have for every eMTBer. And it’s also the perfect gift, whether you only want to introduce your friends, acquaintances, and colleagues to the world’s best hobby or convince them to try out eMTBing for themselves. In addition, buying the Print Edition is the best possible way to support our work.

The big E-MOUNTAINBIKE group test - what are the best bikes of 2020?
This year, 25 eMTBs lined up against each other in our big group test. The good news: eMTBs are better than ever.

Exclusive in the Print Edition: 2020 motor test.
When you're looking for a new eMTB, the motor and battery concept play a crucial role. After putting the 7 most important motors through an extensive test, we can tell you what makes a good eMTB drive and what you have to look out for to get a coherent overall concept.
New Generation

And that’s reflected not only in the bikes, but also in the riders. New motor concepts and bike categories such as off- road step through bikes are making the fantastic world of eMTBing accessible to an increasing number of people
