Frequently Asked Questions
Electric bikes (otherwise known as ebikes) are very intuitive. If you can ride a regular bike, you can ride an ebike! Everything works exactly the same as a regular bike except one big difference – when you pedal, the bike “assists” you – making pedaling up hills a breeze! When you coast (not pedaling) or braking, the ebike is just like a bike – it behaves exactly the same and there is no power during those times.
You can pedal while riding, and you have 5 levels of assist, anywhere from just a little to a lot of assist (that make those big hills seem like nothing), and you have full and simple control over this directly from your handlebars.
You will not run out of battery power while riding – our bikes have premium quality lithium batteries which last longer than we do!
