1. The best electric bicycle: BH Atom Cross
BH is characterized by offering electric bicycles that combine design, power and functionality. The Atom Cross model is no exception. It is a model designed to offer excellent urban mobility.
With a design that is as elegant as it is sporty, the BH Atom Cross is the perfect hybrid bike to move around the city, but also for excursions to the countryside. The bike's architecture is inspired by conventional bikes except it has an integrated battery. Precisely in this sense, the BH Atom Cross incorporates the "TS System", patented by BH, which consists of the simple and minimalist integration of the battery in the diagonal frame at the front of the bicycle.
For the motorization, the BH Atom Cross uses the extremely compact and lightweight BH Drive-1E 36V, designed for high performance and maximum power in sports use, with great sensitivity and quick response. It has a maximum torque of 80 Nm. It should be noted that the heaviest elements of the bicycle are located mainly in the lower part, which allows a low center of gravity. This results in a ride that is as responsive as it is stable.
