What is a Class 3 eBike?

In the United States, electric bikes are categorized by the maximum speed a bike can achieve with either a pedal-assist or throttle motor. Let's begin with the pedal-assist bicycles that we manufacture at Gazelle. Also referred to as pedelecs, these bikes will only move if you pedal—no free rides here! At Gazelle, there are two categories of pedelecs: Class 1 and Class 3. 

Class 3 electric bikes are pedal-assisted up to 28 mph. Like Class 1 electric bikes, the motor stops assisting once you hit the maximum speed. Class 3 electric bikes usually come with larger capacity batteries, measured in watt-hours (Wh). They also feature more robust motors to handle longer journeys and tougher terrain. Due to these enhancements, Class 3 ebikes typically come at a higher price point compared to Class 1 ebikes.
