2. HOW DO ELECTRIC BIKES WORK?
Our electric bicycles use batteries as a source of power and a quiet DC motor as a driving mechanism. On our premium European models, the motor is built directly into the wheel (known as a hub motor) and the batteries are discreetly hidden. Our bikes can be operated just like normal bicycles, but they can also be power assisted with the help of 'pedal-assist' (or 'PAS').
3. WHAT IS PEDAL ASSIST?
To activate Pedal Assistance you simply use your legs to control power and speed. To get started, simply start pedaling and you will feel an acceleration which varies according to your chosen assistance level. Once you start pedaling, a torque sensor picks up your movement and power integrates seamlessly while you ride. Just pedal and go. Once you use the brakes or quit pedaling, the power is deactivated and you need to pedal again (lightly) to re-activate pedal assistance.
4. HOW FAST DO ELECTRIC BIKES GO?
The speed of an electric bike will vary based upon several factors. Electric bikes in Australia are limited to 25 km/h under assistance for use on public roads, though you can pedal the bike to higher speeds – it is just the assistance which propels you to 25km/h. Such bikes that meet this standard do not require a bike license, however users should confirm with their own state laws.
The actual speed will vary depending on rider weight, terrain and road conditions. Smaller riders are likely to achieve higher top speeds than larger ones, and you're likely to go faster on flat terrain than uphill as an example.
5. HOW FAR CAN I GO ON A SINGLE CHARGE?
Range varies, but most riders are able achieve 50-90 kilometres per charge on the average e-bike. One of the main factors in determining how far you can travel on a single charge is how much assistance you provide. Obviously, the more pedaling you do, the less strain on the battery and the more range you'll achieve.
Batteries take between 3-4 hours to fully charge.
The longer a battery sits uncharged, the faster the life will be reduced, so regular charging is recommended.
