Electric Bikes for the Beach?
It used to be that the term “beach cruiser” evoked sweeping curves in the frame, full fenders, barefoot pedals, and perhaps even fat whitewall tires. In the 1950s, that look was contemporary, and it has aged into as much an icon as the inimitable ‘57 Chevy.
While those cool retro looks have hit their high and low water marks over the years, technological innovations have lately changed the game. These days, you’re definitely going to want an electric bike for the beach.
Beach Biking Without the Anxiety
So can electric bikes be ridden on sand? Deep sand usually produces a crash pretty quickly, at least on analog bikes. Skinny tires dig in, it’s impossible to pedal through, and you quickly regret leaving the boardwalk as you topple over.
The first thing you need to know is that electric power now allows you to venture from the boardwalk onto the beach with no worries about not being able to pedal through deep sand.
Additionally, while those old whitewalls used to be considered fat tires back in the day, today’s electric bikes sport tires that are at least twice as wide. That gives you better flotation over soft sand, meaning your wheels don’t sink in and dig ruts.
SUPER73’s BDGR and GRZLY tires are the perfect complements to an electric bike for the beach:
- BDGR’s transverse lugs give you superior traction in most situations while keeping rolling resistance and noise to a minimum on the street
- GRZLY’s aggressive, fractal-inspired lugs provide outstanding traction and mud shedding
Now the two main adversaries of beach riding — bad traction and a lack of power — have been conquered.

Speaking of conquering challenges, how about your daily commute? Have you considered how an electric bike might fit into your daily routine? Cycling is fun; imagine what a great mood you’d be in if you got to ride your bike to work every day!
