How Does an eBike Work?

An ebike combines your own pedaling power with that of an electric motor, providing an extra boost. The motor draws power from the battery and supports you up to a peak speed determined by the ebike class. Class 1 ebikes are pedal assist up to 20 mph and Class 3 ebikes are pedal assist up to 28 mph. With pedal assistance, you can conquer long routes with steep inclines or headwinds with ease.

The level of electric support you receive as a cyclist is determined by smart sensors that measure speed, pedaling force, or pedal rotation combined with the power of the ebike motor. The best motor for you depends on your needs and preferences. Check out our advice page on different ebike motors to choose the type that suits you best.

Most ebikes allow you to adjust the level of assistance to your comfort. Whether you're tackling a mountain climb or facing a headwind, our blog provides more insight into what an electric bike is and how it works.
