In matters related to the best electric bike, a mountain bike should be on the list. Now, if mountain biking is your calling, you might be interested in one of the best electric mountain bikes, the NCM Prague Electric Mountain Bike. With its lithium battery, you get an easy 60 miles, while taking on speeds of 20mph. Not to mention incredible control with a 21-speed Shimano Altus shifter.

Why We Like It – NCM Prague Electric Mountain Bike

Fitted with a 21-speed Shimano Altus shifter and a 60-mile battery range, the NCM Prague Electric Mountain Bike can take on all kinds of terrain at an affordable price.

  • 60 miles on a single charge
  • 21-speed Shimano Altus shifter
  • Great Tektro mechanical disc brakes
  • Saddle takes some time to break in
  • Prefer hydraulic over mechanical disc brakes

Durability & Build Quality

Unlike some exceptions, such as the NAKTO fat tire bike, it’s typical for bikes to have aluminum frames. But, NCM Prague Electric Mountain Bikes are built with high-quality aluminum alloy frames, 6061 to be specific. It’s resilient, strong, and lightweight. The handles are Promax Risers (rubber), fit comfortably, and curve back ergonomically. The seating is uncomfortable at first, but loosens up over time. You might also be interested to know that a folding bike that is suitable for e-trekking is in the NCM bike review. For another bike made of similar materials, you’ll want to read our Orbea Gain ebike review.

Performance (Speed & Acceleration)

Hitting top speeds of 20mph is average, with and without pedal assist, just 5 miles over the Cyclamatic Power Plus CX1 Electric Mountain Bike. It’s certainly faster than the Shueriu folding bike. The shifter is particularly nice, being a 21-speed Shimano Altus; offers plenty of control on various terrain. You could also say the same for the bike in our OppsDecor ebike review.

Range & Battery

For e bikes this affordable, the NCM Prague Electric Mountain Bike has a really good battery. If you’re using the motor when needed, you can hit 60 miles on a single charge, just 20 miles more than the ANCHEER Folding Electric Mountain Bike. Around half to 40 miles if you use it more often.

Safety Features

The NCM Prague Electric Mountain Bike is naturally safer to ride, but doesn’t have substantial safety features. It has fat tires, but not like an Addmotor Motan Electric Bikes. They’re Schwalbe Smart Sam that keep to the terrain. The Suntour XCT suspension fork is adaptable to your preference. More importantly, the Tektro mechanical disc brakes are great, often matching Shimano, but not as good as, say, hydraulic brakes.


The NCM Prague Electric Mountain Bike suffers a bit in the safety department due to only having what’s necessary, but given the fact that it’s only $999, you’ll have ample opportunity to fit it with features you want, like headlights or a bike rack. Other than that, the performance, design, and overall quality of the bike are priced perfectly.

NCM Prague Electric Mountain Bike Wrap Up

The NCM Prague Electric Mountain Bike is a great budget bike for those who want distance and multiple gears to shift into. When you’re hitting up strange terrain, as you would on a mountain, having 21 speeds is necessary. And while you’re riding around for 60 miles on one trip, you have the Tektro mechanical disc brakes to confidentiality stop when needed.
