Most electric bicycles are heavy – you’re tooling around with a battery and a motor – and if you try to pedal up even a slight incline, the average rider can find this difficult.

The Giant Twist Freedom DX is a pedelec. This means the motor doesn’t provide any power unless the operator is actually pedaling. However, the motor does provide enough power to get you up those hills without over-exerting yourself.
