How much does an electric bike cost?
This is a question we get a lot at Unconquered Customs. The answer, unfortunately, is not as simple as you might think. There are a number of factors that can influence the cost of an electric bike.
One of the biggest factors is the electric bike battery. Most electric bikes with larger batteries tend to be more expensive than those with smaller batteries. The reason for this is that larger batteries provide more range, which is one of the main selling points of any electric bike. For instance each Unconquered Custom, comes standard with a 52V Lithium Ion Polymer battery, comprised of 65 Samsung 18650 cells... making our battery far superior in range and quality to the competition within our class.

Another factor that can influence the cost of an electric bike is the electric bike motor. Generally speaking, geared hub motors are more expensive than direct drive hub motors. This is because they tend to be more powerful and offer better hill-climbing ability.

Some brands, such as Unconquered are renowned for the quality of each component, and the high quality and performance of each custom e bike build, and as a result, these brands of electric bikes tend to be slightly more expensive, but infinitely worth the money.
