Best Electric Bike for Kids Quick List

Electric bikes for kids are a great way to ride more with children.  The pedal assist on ebikes provide an assist up hills and help kids keep up with their parents on the street or trails and help them ride longer.  We’ve chosen some great options for all styles and feel the combination of size, speed, and price make them the best options on the market today.  Before you buy, make sure you understand all your local laws.

Swagtron EB6 Fat Tire Electric Bike for Kids

This is one of the only ebikes on the market that is a specially built electric bike for kids.  The EB6 is a real fat-tire eBike built to give young riders the opportunity to experience the thrill and freedom of mountain biking. With 20-inch wheels and a durable frame, the EB6 is boosted by a 350-watt electric motor capable of reaching speeds up to 18.6 miles per hour. Accelerate through a twist-grip throttle or through a “pedal to go” mode. With a range of up to 20 miles on a single charge (throttle only, farther if you pedal), they’ll be able to conquer the tough trails with ease.

Like any true fat bike, the EB6 features high-volume 4-inch tires for confident traction on a variety of loose terrain.  Front and rear disc brakes rein all that power back in and put safety and control at kids’ fingertips with easy-to-use handlebar-mounted levers. Seven gears give them plenty of range for tackling a variety of terrain. And a Shimano freehub means they can keep coasting even after they stop pedaling.

The EB6 also has a convenient battery indicator and USB power port for charging electronic devices. The rechargeable battery easily removes for charging indoors. Or swap it out with a fully charged second battery (sold separately) and keep the good times rolling. And a built-in battery lock protects the battery from theft.

When you turn it off, you can ride it like a traditional bike without feeling any drag or resistance.  The range for the bike settles in at around 35-40 miles on a full charge.

Unlike most other bikes using V-brakes, this ebike uses dual-disc brakes.  When considering this electric bike for kids, these dual-disc breaks significantly improve safety, reliability and performance. Kids are safer going downhill, riding in poor road and weather conditions and they’ll generally have a shorter braking distance.
