A little extra boost can lead to incredible possibilities. When you ride an electric bike, there’s no ride too long, no load too heavy and no place your legs can’t carry you. Ditch the daily traffic jam, get more exercise and feel great about treading more lightly on the planet. And best of all – have a ton of fun along the way.

MORE POSSIBILITIES Go ahead. Take the hard route home or explore that road or trail you’ve never ridden before. E-bikes amplify your ability to go further and faster than ever before.
Electric Bike Anatomy
PARTS OF AN ELECTRIC E-BIKE
Electric E-BIKE MOTOR All of our e-bikes are designed with mid-drive pedal-assist motors that are located in the same area as your pedals. They feel natural while pedalling, are easy to shift on hills and provide a boost of smooth, consistent power with every pedal stroke you take.
E-BIKE DISPLAYS E-bike displays (also known as controllers) are what you use to see and control your e-bike’s settings. You can change your level of assist, see your speed and distance, and check how much battery power you have left. Our e-bike displays are super-intuitive to use and are mounted right at your fingertips for convenience.
E-BIKES BATTERIES E-bike batteries are the biggest contributing factor to how far your e-bike can go. The higher the watt hour (Wh) your battery is, the more power capacity it has. Batteries can be mounted in lots of different places, but those mounted on the downtube or integrated into the downtube itself provide the best centre of gravity for better balance.
HOW PEDAL-ASSIST WORKS?
Electric bikes work by using an electric motor and battery to help you power your bike. On pedal-assist e-bikes, you control the amount of power the drive system provides and the assist only kicks in when you pedal. The motor amplifies the power behind each of your pedal strokes, providing a natural riding feeling that makes it seem like your legs are supercharged!
Some manufacturers make e-bikes that use a twist throttle to engage the drive system. With these bikes, you don’t have to be pedalling for the motor to be engaged. This can be dangerous, since it’s easy to get out of control if you’re not paying attention. We only make pedal-assist e-bikes, because they feel the most like a regular bike and help riders feel more in command of their ride.
Pedal-Assist Motor Depending on the model, your e-bike’s electric motor has a power output between of around 250 watts, and assists up to 25 km/h). And you can go faster than that without feeling much resistance from the motor.
All our displays show you critical ride info like range, assist mode, speed and battery level. Select displays take things a step further by integrating with your phone for on-bike access to music, apps, turn-by-turn directions and more.
