Electric bike expertise


An electric bike is  a  regular bike  with the addition of an electrical drive system. This consists of a battery, a motor, a way to integrate the motor’s power into the drivetrain, and a way to control that power.
In the following image  you can  spot the 4 components:

1,Our mid-drive motor is at the center, below the frame.
2,The battery that powers the motor is half hid in the frame.
3,The drivetrain that integrates the power is in the rear wheel. 4,Finally, the throttle, which controls that power, is in the handle bar.
In essence, that’s it! Yes, we know. They look like a regular bike but let’s do a deeper dive.

Let’s start with the electric mid-drive motor. This is the main component, and is what makes the bike ride effortlessly. This type of motor has higher performance and torque when compared to a traditional hub motor. As it drives the crank and not the wheel, it multiplies its power and takes better advantage of the bike’s existing gears. Also, it’s positioned close to the center of gravity and low to the ground. This helps improve the handling of your electric bike, as the it distributes the weight better throughout the bike.

Now, the battery. This is usually the most expensive and heavy component of the bike. A typical electric bike battery (as an example, 36V10Ah) can provide you with up to 40 miles of riding, depending on a few factors. You can remove it with ease to take to your home or office to charge.

Third, the bike’s drivetrain. This is what delivers power to the driving wheels and convert speed and torque via gears.

Finally, the throttle. This is the mechanism that allows you to control the motor. For example, our bikes use a half twist throttle integrated into the handle bar. Twist it with your right hand, and you’ll experience the motor kick in.

Apart from those 4, electric bikes share the same components than regular bikes. A frame, two wheels, disc brakes, suspension, a comfortable seat, handlebars and pedals.

What it’s important to remember is that there will always be differences. What I described above is our new electric bike. But since e-bikes are a new technology, there are many different approaches to it. For instance, some people prefer a hub motor over a mid-drive.

There isn’t one electric bike that is perfect for everyone. You just need to find which one is perfect for you.
