Electric powered mountain bikes are now possible with Ego-Kits, an E-powered Downhill Bike Kit. After coming down the mountain, your electric powered mountain bike offers enough power to drive you back up the trail. This is the way to go especially if you're not willing to stick with cable cars.
Ego-Kits feature an intelligent construction and the engine can be attached to 70% of commercially available downhill bikes and turns your normal bike into a true uphill machine. The battery pack which is carried in a backpack offers 1200 watts and therefore does not change the ride dynamic of your bike. You can order your Ego-kit here.
