About the bikes.

From European brand IDEAL Bikes, the FuTour E8 is a stylish hybrid model of electric bike that assists the rider’s pedalling to take the hard work out of hills and makes long distances a thing of leisure.

Ideal Bikes started life as a small corner shop way back in 1926 yet a few decades (and a lot of hard work later) it had evolved into a manufacturer of high quality bicycles.

Ideal’s vision was always to produce high quality bikes at an affordable price, thereby allowing more riders to experience the joy of leisure cycling.

Freedom to explore.

With a range of over 50 miles, guests can ride further without fear of running out of power.
In town or exploring country lanes, the FuTour E8 is equally at home on main roads and quiet lanes as cycle-paths and urban trails.

Lightweight and durable.

The FuTour features the Shimano STEPS E6000, one of the lightest and most compact cycle motors available which is fully encased to handle all weather conditions.

On board computer.

Our bikes also include handlebar-mounted cycling computer with easy-to-read display and functions for a successful outing – speed, distance, trip time, battery power and estimated range.

Further, smoother, smarter.

It might seem a little strange, but Ideal’s e-Bike systems are built to resemble riding a normal bike.

The advanced SHIMANO STEPS pedalling assistant works so that you will hardly notice that you’re riding an e-Bike. The powerful mid-motors with their long-range batteries kick-in when the going gets a little harder, helping riders go further and see more without too much extra effort.

Power into your pedals.

The power unit is a smooth and silent motor contained in a compact, lightweight design for a clean and sleek look.

One of the lightest, most compact motors on the market, the SHIMANO STEPS system is robust and durable enough to handle all weather conditions.

Incredibly easy to operate, yet advanced to deliver intelligent pedalling with a solid, natural feel.
