Electric Bike Motors

Electric Bike Motors

Electric bikes work by using an electric motor and battery to help you power your bike. On pedal assist ebikes, you control the amount of power the drive system provides and the assist only kicks in when you pedal. The motor's electric power amplifies each of your pedal strokes, providing a natural riding feeling that makes it seem like your legs are supercharged!

All of our electric bicycles are designed with mid-drive motors that are located in the same area as your pedals. Depending on the model, your ebike’s electric motor has power between 40 to 85 Nm and assists up to 20 mph for a Class 1 or 28 mph for a Class 3. And you can go faster than that without feeling much resistance from the motor.

Electric Bike Displays

Electric Bike Displays

Ebike displays (also known as controllers) are what you use to see and control your electric 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 electric bicycle displays are super intuitive to use and are conveniently mounted right at your fingertips.

How far can ebikes go?

The general range estimate for an electric bike varies from 20-100 miles on a single charge. Yes, it’s really wide! That’s because there are so many factors that determine your range—some you can control, some you can’t. Those you can include the size of your battery, the efficiency of your motor, the level of motor assist you select, how much weight you’re carrying, and if you have a dual battery to double your range. 

How batteries affect range

The bigger your battery, the more capacity you have to go farther or go faster. Battery power is measured in watt hours (Wh), the higher the Wh the bigger the battery capacity.

How level of pedal assist affects range

Your range is directly affected by the assist mode you pick. For example, eco mode provides the least amount of assist, draws the least amount of power from the battery, and gives you the longest range. Turbo mode provides the most assist, draws the most power from your battery, and will drain your battery the quickest.

To help you figure out the most accurate range estimate your for ebike, we recommend using Bosch’s range finder tool.
