Ebike 101

How does a pedal assisted ebike work?

Have you ever wondered how Electric Bikes Work? An electric bike is – at its core – a bicycle, but it has a motor, battery, and (sometimes) a throttle. These bikes are either retro fitted with a kit to become motorized, or can be purchased new and already modded to be electric. Almost all of them require pedaling, as reflected in the term “Pedelec.” With Pedelec bikes, the amount of assistance is linked to your pedaling. My pedelec systems use a cadence sensor. Once you start pedaling, there is a two second delay, and then the motor starts up. The level of assistance is controlled by the level of assistance you have chosen on the console (0-5), making it easy to find the right amount of help when you need it.
