Electric bikes have revolutionized the way we travel. But how do they actually work? Let’s take a closer look and get to know your future ride!
At the heart of an electric bike is its electric motor. This motor is powered by a rechargeable battery, usually mounted on the frame of the bike.
Depending on your ebike setup and ebike classification – there are multiple ways to ride an ebike.
The first is when you pedal, the motor kicks in and provides an extra boost of power, making your ride easier and more efficient. It’s like having a constant tailwind at your back. This style is considered either a Class 1 or Class 3 Electric bike. Class 1 pedal-assists you up to 20 mph in speed and Class 3 pedal-assists you up to 28 mph in speed before the motor cuts out.
The other style provides you with a throttle to use that works without the use of pedaling. This is called an bike electric Class 2 and the throttle stops working after your reach 20 mph.
One of the great things about adult electric bike is their versatility. You can choose to pedal with no assistance, use the electric motor to assist your pedaling, or even let the motor do all the work while you sit back and enjoy the ride. It’s up to you!
Another important component of electric bikes is the control panel or display. This is where you can monitor your battery level, adjust the level of assistance, and even track your speed and distance traveled. It’s like having a dashboard on your bike!
Some electric bikes also come with additional features like built-in lights, fenders to keep you dry, and racks to carry your belongings. These features make ebikes for adults practical and convenient for daily commuting or running errands.
