These new city e-bikes are incredibly light, and won’t break the bank

Estonian bike builder Ampler, known for building chic e-bikes like the Ampler Curt, has released a pair of new city riders that are feather-light and cost a lot less than you might expect.

Electric bikes are extremely convenient for city riding, making hills feel as effortless as flats and allowing you to make your daily commute without breaking a sweat, but they have a notorious weight problem. The latest e-bike drive systems like the Bosch smart system feature lightweight components and compact batteries, but many of the best e-bikes still tip the scales at 20kg or more, making them difficult to carry and store.
