This is another case of 'don't be fooled by first impressions'. Although a stepthrough electric bike with a chunky looking frame, it rides in a surprisingly sporty and dynamic way. It gathers momentum very quickly. It's probably thanks to the Schwalbe Energizer Plus tyres, which are easy-rolling, and the Active Plus motor, which adds 50nm torque through your pedal stroke.
Excellent comfort features
If comfort is high up on your list of priorities, the swept back handlebars, 28 inch wheels, reassuringly responsive front forks, and ergonomic grips all combine to make the ride very comfortable indeed. The saddle is probably the most comfy 'from factory' saddle that we have as well which is a bonus.
Built to last
We sell a lot of 'fully equipped' electric bikes but our rule is No Rattling. If the parts aren't strong, fitted well, and made to withstand regular riding, we'll pass. The Bergamont fully-equipped bikes, like the E-Horizon Tour 400 Wave, give you components and accessories that can keep pace with you and your riding ambitions.
Summary: A bike that defies first impressions to deliver a comfortable yet energised ride for road or paths.

About the brand
Bergamont come from the St. Pauli district of the German city of Hamburg. We took them on originally for their super comfortable and stable stepthrough bikes but their other designs have impressed us so much that we have expanded our range of Bergamont electric bikes to include electric mountain bikes and electric trekking bikes too.
Bergamont want to create a world where you will happily chose the electric bike instead of a car. You can tell that as soon as you get on one of their bikes. You can feel that they are built for frequent use; there's something about how stable they feel on the ground. They inspire cycling confidence, and if that's what you're after, this is the brand for you.
