Walmart slashes prices on electric hybrid bicycles for National Bike Month

Electric bikes can be economical, convenient, and fun. Heading into summer, Walmart slashed the prices for two pedal-assist Hyper E-ride Electric Hybrid Bicycles by 40%.

Pedal-assist and electric-only bikes and scooters come in many configurations, sizes, and price ranges. You don’t have to try very hard to spend $5,000 or more on an ebike, but as the field of electric-powered mobility choices expands in type and purpose, there we found an interesting variety of e-rides for less than $1,000.

In addition to the Hyper E-ride hybrids, we found three other electric mobility alternatives on sale at Walmart. If you’re considering an electric-powered two-wheeler for fun or urban mobility, these five deals can help you save up to $600.

Hyper E-ride Electric Hybrid Bike — $400 off

Hyper Bicycles‘ 26-inch Hyper E-ride Mountain Electric Bike resembles a conventional bicycle with its aluminum frame and a Shimano grip shifter that moves between six gears with a Shimano rear derailleur. The bike has V-brake front and rear and a suspension fork. Hyper refers to this model as a mountain bike, but the reference is more for the ebike’s style than any capability for hard off-road use. The company recommends riding on smooth, light trails.

An integrated flush-mount, 7.8 amp-hour 36-volt lithium ion battery assists when you pedal, powering a 250-watt brushless rear hub motor. The removable battery’s range is up to 20 miles or 1 hour per charge. You can recharge the battery on the bike or remove it to charge inside; either way, recharging takes four hours. When you’re riding, you can select from three power assist modes. There’s also a walk mode that helps move the bike when you walk it up hills or in no-ride areas. Top speed is limited to 20 miles per hour.

Normally priced at $998, the Hyper E-ride Mountain Electric Bike is $598 during this sale. This may fit the bill if you’re looking for a relatively low cost ebike for street or moderate trail riding.
