E-Bikes With Suspension Fork: What You Need to Know
Do you know anything about an electric bike with suspension? If you’re looking for an off-road mountain e-bike or an e-bike for rough terrain, then you need to know something about suspension bikes.
The suspension of the bike is divided into a full suspension, rear-wheel suspension, and front fork suspension. Knowing the e-bike suspension function can help you choose a bicycle that suits the type of road you usually ride and bring you a good riding experience.
Suspension e-bikes can reduce the feeling of riding bumps when riding on rough mountain roads. Suspension bikes are usually found in mountain bikes
Or there will be a full suspension in off-road bicycles. Some models only have shock absorbers at the rear, which are called soft tail electric bicycles. Generally, ordinary bicycles have front fork suspension functions, and such electric bicycles are called hardtail electric bicycles.
It’s not that the more shocks the better, the type of shock absorber still depends on the type of road you usually ride. It is best to choose a bike that suits your riding style.
What type of suspension bike is right for you?
If you usually only ride on hills or ridges, and occasionally ride on flat roads, then I recommend that you can directly use a bicycle with a front fork suspension. If you’re planning extreme mountain biking on treacherous trails and planning a lot of downhill racing, then you might want to consider a full-suspension bike. They generally provide the most absorption and can improve handling in these situations.
Of course, when a full-suspension bicycle brings a good experience, it usually costs more than the front fork or rear suspension. Unless very professional off-road riders need a full-suspension bike, most people actually don’t need a full-suspension bike, fork suspension or rear suspension is more than enough.

The RV3 comes with a spring front suspension fork.
