E-Bikes

E-BIKES..

 

… extremely popular in Europe, they are on the rise in North America as well. There are a couple of different systems currently on the market like mid-drive or rear/front wheel assist. The rear/front wheel assist gives you the option to just use the throttle without pedaling. The weight is either in the front or the rear wheel (hub). Mid-drive systems provide power through the cranks of the bike. With most e-bikes, the mid-drive assist enhances your pedal stroke – so you must be pedaling.

 

VOLTS..

.. tells you how much the battery can store. The more volts a battery can store the more kilometers you get out of a charge. The more range you want, the heavier and larger the battery.

AMPS..

.. amp-hour rating is how much energy capacity is in your volt-pack.

WATTS..

.. = volts + amps and is the power of the motor. All e-bikes are governed at 32km/hr, but the higher the watts the faster the e-bike will accelerate to 32km/hr.

TORQUE ..

.. is the ability to rotate the rear wheel. A higher torque will rotate the wheel easier and create more acceleration which enables the e-bike to maintain speed on changing terrain (hills, etc) and under load with less effort.

OR, TRYING TO KEEP IT SIMPLE:

VOLT — water pressure || AMP — how much water or, how small or big a river

WATTS — both, volt and amp — a small & slow river, or a small $ fast river, or a big & slow river, or ….
