WE ARE USUALLY ASKED ABOUT

HOW DOES AN ELECTRIC BIKE WORK?

One common misconception is that eBikes use a throttle to control your speed – this isn’t the case, as to be road-legal, an eBike must be pedal-assist – often referred to as a Pedelec.

A good eBike will use a torque sensor to detect how much power you’re inputting at the pedals. It responds directly to this so that the more you put int, the more you get out. You choose how much you want the bike to assist you, and cycle just like a conventional bike.

BATTERY LIFE

Depending on what battery/motor combination you choose, you can expect anywhere from around 40km to 200km of range on a single charge.

The overall lifespan of the battery is measured in charge cycles rather than time (one charge cycle = one full 100-0% battery drain). Most lithium ion batteries will get about 1000 cycles before they start to deteriorate significantly, so most customers get years of service before noticing that their battery is holding less charge.

There are a lot of factors which affect lifespan – usage, storage, temperature. Always refer to your eBike manual, however some general rules of thumb are to leave the battery between 30%-60% charged if storing it for a longer period of time, and not to leave the battery out in very cold or freezing temperatures.

Every eBike we sell has a replaceable battery, so when the time comes you can buy a new battery, rather than a  whole new bike.

WHO ARE ELECTRIC BIKES FOR?

There is no such thing as the typical eBike customer. People of all ages, from all walks of life have discovered the benefits of riding electric.

For commuting they’re one of the most practical forms of transport – much cheaper and faster than taking the car or bus, they decongest our crowded streets, as well as being healthier for you, and the planet.

For leisure use – be it on road touring or off-road exploring – an eBike is best thought of as a range extender. It still provides an enjoyable level of exercise however it will enable you to go further than you could before, without stressing about whether you’ll be able to make it up that last hill on your way home.

WHICH E-MTB IS FOR ME?

For choosing the right E-MTB, you can choose a Full Suspension or a Hardtail.
The Full-Suspension E-MTB offers front and rear suspension for more comfort and control. The Hardtail E-MTB features only a front suspension.

The first question should always be what kind of terrain are you going to ride?

The Full-E+ offers great comfort and control, which is good for trails and rougher terrain so you can descend easier.

The Dirt-E+ is suitable for riding smoother terrain like XC trails and dirt paths.

Either way, both bikes offer comfort and control on different types of terrain.

Empower yourself to choose the E-MTB which fits you best.

Can I handle the E-bike when the battery runs out?

Can you handle the E-bike when the battery runs out?

E-bikes are supported by our SyncDrive motor technology, which provides support on the most challenging terrain.

But what if the battery runs out? What to do now?

No worries, you can still pedal and get home safely. Is it easy? That depends on what terrain you are riding.

Empower yourself to ride your E-bike even when the battery runs out.

So can it go faster than the motor supports?

Yes, sure. It can go as fast as you can pedal, but the motor stops supporting you when you reach the max speed limitation.

With an E-bike, you have the power to reach a speed that is suitable for your way of riding, whether that’s faster than the motor supports or at a speed that’s lower than the maximum motor support speed.

How fast can an E-bike go?

The first thing to remember is that even though E-bikes have a motor, we are still talking about bicycles. They are not scooters.

One of the most frequently asked questions concerning E-bikes is their speed.
