E-Bikes

  • Why are Hilltopper Bikes 1/2 the price of other e-bikes on the market? Because we sell direct to you, the customer. Our mission is to create a sustainable future, two wheels at a time and we do that by making e-bikes affordable for you. We intentionally don't sell through dealers, distributors, or retailers because that way of selling means a higher price tag for you. We build our kits and bike wheels with love and care here in Seattle and sell direct to you, so you won't see the large retail markup that would be present if you were buying from a third party. That way you're always getting the best deal on your electric bike.

  • It depends on how fast you want to go, and how steep the hill.

    The 36v, 350 watt kits and bikes can go 20 mph with minimal pedaling. This is the legal limit in most of the US for e-bikes so it's enough power for most bikes. This is a great power for steeper hills, faster commutes & carrying bigger loads. It's like having two Soul Cycle instructors also pedaling for you.

    The 24v, 250 watt kits and bikes can go 15 mph with minimal pedaling on flat ground, but they perform best as a boost to your pedaling with pedaling required on hills. Perfect if you are looking for an added boost to your ride at an affordable price. Cuts your commute time by 25%, flattens out that hill by 50% & puts a smile on your face.

    The 48v, 750 watt Summit kit can go 20 mph with minimal pedaling. This is the legal limit in most of the US for e-bikes. The motor could go faster, but it is limited at 20 mph for safety and to remain street legal in the US (unlimited it could go 30+ mph). The 750 watt motor can carry large loads up steep hills and accelerates quickly. Perfect if you are looking to cruise consistently at 20 mph over varied terrain or climb absurdly steep and long hills while hauling groceries. It's more power then you might need. But its a lot of fun and gives you the piece of mind that you can accelerate out of any sticky situation.

  • All Hilltopper electric bikes and kits have a maximum speed of 20 mph. This keeps them street legal and compliant with state laws and city ordinances in the US.

    For choosing a power system, here's what to keep in mind:

    The 36v, 350 watt kits (Ranger & Horizon) can go 20 mph with minimal pedaling. This is great for steeper hills, faster commutes & carrying bigger loads.

    The 24v, 250 watt kits (Sprinter & Commuter) can go 15 mph with minimal pedaling on flat ground, but they perform best as a boost to your pedaling with pedaling required on hills. Perfect if you are looking for an added boost to your ride at an affordable price. Cuts your commute time by 25%, gives a boost up hills & puts a smile on your face.

Low-income children at Bike Works receive their donated kids bike at a family bike swap. Teens receive their donated bike as part of the Earn-a-bike program, where they learn how to build and repair bicycles, put their new skills to good use by volunteering to help others fix their bike, and earn a new bike at the end.

    • Aluminium frame to save weight, with a steel fork for battle hardened strength.
    • Includes full coverage fenders, and a rear carrying rack.
  • For our conversion kits, and on some of our bikes, we offer two methods for controlling the motor manually, the GripSwitch, or an Adjustable Speed Throttle. Both serve the same purpose, but go about it differently and offer different installation options.

    The GripSwitch:

    • Easiest possible installation ever conceived. Just strap the Velcro where ever you like on your handle bars. This means it can go on the right-hand or left, top or bottom, middle or end. Many people place it to be pushed by thumb, others like to set it as a trigger under their index finger. The possibilities are nearly endless and the choice is yours.
    • Compatible with absolutely any handlebars.
    • Controlling the motor is equally simple. Since it is a button, it's just on or off. Just hold the button when you want a boost, release when you don't. We have fine tuned the motor controller to conserve energy, minimizing wasted power to keeps you rolling longer.
    • Only available with our 24V electric conversion kits and bikes.

    Adjustable Speed Throttle:

    • Controlling the motor work just like a gas pedal in a car. Push it all the way for max speed, push it just a little for lower speeds. This means that just like in a car, you are in total control of your speed, but also means the more aggressive you "drive" the less "gas" mileage you may get on a full charge.
    • Installing the throttle is a little harder than the GripSwitch, but still pretty simple. It does require that you remove your handle bar grip first.
    • When considering the Throttle option, keep in mind that it has a maximum clamp diameter of 22.2 mm. This means there can be complications installing it on drop bars for handle bars with a larger diameter.
    • Not compatible with our 24V conversion kits or electric bikes.
    • For all returns or warranty claims contact support@hilltopperbikes.com or 1 800 805 9053 x 2.
    • 30-day money back guarantee. Returns of undamaged conversion kits may be issued full refunds less a $50.00 restocking fee. Returns of undamaged complete bikes may be issued full refunds less a $125.00 restocking fee.

NiteRider Rear & Front Light Combo

We like these lights because they offer high visibility at an affordable price and are easy to install. Using a light can mean the difference between being seen or not by automobile drivers. Your overall safety and visibility should not be limited by your budget, that’s why we like this combo back by NiteRider. This package provides maximum brightness for the buck, not only allowing the cyclist to be seen, but allowing the cyclist to see as well. Our favorite feature is the side “gills” that emits light, it not only looks cool, but makes the light more visible. The rear light has five ultra bright LED’s with four different operating modes, including three different flash modes. The amber Side Lights help to provide even more visibility from the sides of the rider. The bright red flashing mode will help keep you safe and seen from behind (180 degree visibility). Rear light operates on 2 AAA batteries (included) for up to 100 hours on flash.
