Every day we hear about the development of a new environmentally sound technology that will make a difference. Some still on the drawing board. Our electric bike products with their refined design and engineering are available now — Ready to ride! Read on for some inspiration about how electric bikes change our impact on the planet.
If you are concerned about the speed and power of an electric bike, pay attention to the motor size. Electric motor size is measured in watts and usually ranges between 250 and 750. When deciding on the appropriate amount of wattage, think about factors like the weight of the rider and the desired speed and terrain for the bike. If your child will mostly be on a flat surface, lower wattage should suffice; if they are planning to ride up and down hills, look for a bike with a larger the wake of the school shooting in Parkland, Fla., that left 17 people dead, student survivors have started a movement for greater gun control.

The GenZe Companion app looks for active faults your 200 series e-Bike has submitted. If something is wrong, it will display the fault, and provide you with an appropriate action to resolve the issue.
If you live in an apartment or small house that’s short on space, consider the Kalkhoff, which is one of the lightest and most compact e-bikes on the market, thanks to folding pedals and swiveling handlebars. That makes it easy to store it flush with the wall in a hallway or on the train, and an internally-geared eight-speed hub makes it cleaner than your average bike. It’s also easily adjustable and one-size-fits-all thanks to handlebars and an extra long seat post that both adjust in a snap. It comes with a two-year warranty, which helps justify the expense of a new bike. Motor speeds top out at 20 miles per hour, and it lasts for a long time—up to 85 miles! At 50 pounds, it’s one of the lightest models available; making it more reasonable to pedal on its own if the battery wears out mid-ride.

Fat e-bikes might seem excessive to some, but we sort of love the concept—especially for riding in deep sand or powder. In addition to being over-the-top and on-trend, the bike has some awesome features, and the fact that Haibike has been on the market with its sporty electronic assist mountain bike line since 2009 (and has been constantly refining it) speaks to the demand for e-bikes. The FatSix is just one of the ultra-niche e-bikes which Haibike offers. (There’s even a dual suspension mountain e-bike in the line.) The bikes are designed and built specially to be e-bikes, not just mountain bikes with motors slapped on. The FatSix features a Bosch motor and an Xduro crankset.
Electric bikes, bicycles propelled by a motor and battery, are not new. In fact the very first e-bike was documented in the 1890’s! Since conception, electric bikes have come a long way. And in the last few years, momentum is gaining. But there is a secret the big electric bike companies don’t want you to know….

By 2001 the terms e-bike, power bike, “pedelec”, pedal-assisted, and power-assisted bicycle were commonly used to refer to e-bikes. The terms “electric motorbike” or “e-motorbike” refer to more powerful models that attain up to 80 km/h (50 mph).

The large solar panel mounted over the back wheel of this experimental bike powers an electric motor connected by a chain drive to the back wheel, helping the rider when he doesn’t feel like pedaling. Using clean, green solar power would remove the problem of having to charge electric bikes with electricity generated from fossil fuels—and help to extend their range significantly.

With clear rules on how and where to ride an e-bike, everyone stands to benefit. Local bicycle shops and manufacturers will see increased business and their customers will no longer be confused; people who already ride e-bikes can more easily understand where to ride; and new bicyclists who may be discouraged from riding a traditional bicycle due to limited physical fitness, age, disability or convenience will have new transportation alternatives.

Do you love vintage motorcycles? Then we have the e-bike for you! The Italjet Ascot is a gorgeously classy model, with retro-chic styling that includes leather handlebar tape, a built-in storage bag, and brown bubble tires. Still not enough glamour for you? A gold chain completes the package. Naturally, it has a leather Brooks Flyer saddle, too. Even the lights look vintage, but nothing about how this bike handles makes it feel old. It can get up to 15 miles per hour with the help of the battery—the rest is all your leg power. If you always wanted a Vespa but couldn’t justify a full-blown scooter, this is one step cooler.

Not all e-bikes take the form of conventional push-bikes with an incorporated motor, such as the Cytronex bicycles which use a small battery disguised as a water bottle. Some are designed to take the appearance of low capacity motorcycles, but smaller in size and consisting of an electric motor rather than a petrol engine. For example, the Sakura e-bike incorporates a 200 W motor found on standard e-bikes, but also includes plastic cladding, front and rear lights, and a speedometer. It is styled as a modern moped, and is often mistaken for one.
[…] allows you to set the desired parameters and ride the bike the way you want it. There’s also a Pedal Assist Mode that keeps the motor engaged while you’re pedaling. Speaking of the motor, it’s 48 volts and […]
The time or distance an electric bike battery will run between chargings is impossible to judge with much accuracy. There are too many variables: terrain, speed, rider weight, bike load (shopping, kids, luggage), and more. However, we can make a few generalizations about an e-bike’s recharge time and overall working life. These generalizations should be used for comparison purposes only.
