E-bike range

To suit your e-bike in every case

Do you go on short trips or would you rather cycle all day long? How far you can go with electric pedal assistance depends to a large extent on the type of battery. Gazelle has a wide range of batteries you can combine with your motor, which means there is always a battery-motor combination to suit your usage. Simply choose the battery that suits you best thank to our clear chart.

Range

The range of an e-bike is the distance you can cycle without having to recharge the battery. The greater the battery capacity, the further you can cycle with pedal assistance. Is the range of a battery known? If so, it is the distance based on ideal conditions. It is not a guarantee that you will achieve the same range on your e-bike. Do you want the maximum possible range? If so, bear the following factors in mind:

  • Weight: it holds in this respect that the weight of the bike as well as that of the rider will affect the range. The more weight the motor is required to assist, the shorter the range. 
  • Resistance: this applies not only to the weather conditions (headwind, rain), but also to tyre pressure and the condition of the road. Higher resistance will have an adverse impact on your range. 
  • Speed: the faster you cycle, the shorter the range will be. The e-bike will provide more assistance at higher speeds. 
  • Assistance: with regard to the assistance setting, it holds that the lower the setting, the longer the range. 
  • Shifting: If you shift efficiently while you are cycling, i.e. in good time and regularly, this will have a positive impact on your range. Make sure you use a lower gear and always shift down to the lowest gear when standing still.
  • Battery: both the condition and the age of the battery will affect the range. An old(er) battery will have reduced capacity, thus providing a short(er)range. 
  • Sensors: the type of sensor can have an impact on range. In general terms, a pedal force sensor is more energy-efficient than a rotation sensor.

* The range will depend in part on the following factors: gear selected, tyre pressure, weight of rider, bike speed, terrain, headwind, age of battery and assistance setting. The charging capacity will reduce over time depending on usage, age and maintenance.

** Max. torque is a measure of how much pulling power the motor can deliver in the most efficient conditions for the system.
