New to E-biking? You’re not alone!

This way of transporting yourself (and maybe the family, furry friend etc) is still new in Australia, but getting more and more popular. We see electric mountain and road bikes. People commuting on E-hybrid bikes. And of course many families riding with their tribe to kindergarten, school, playdates etc. But even though you can ride a bike, finding how it works with E-assist is new.

All our E-bikes are pedal assist bikes, road worthy and comply to Australian Law.
Pedal assist is a mode on your electric bike that provides power from the motor to help you pedal easier and move faster. When you turn on pedal assist and choose your level of assist, the motor will provide a certain level of power output as you pedal. This may feel like a slight push as you ride. So you are still moving your body, you are still using your muscles, you are still building up fitness.  All the while you are getting that coffee, groceries, and having family adventures! It’s one of the most efficient ways of getting around and running a busy life.

We only work with high quality E systems, that are safe and easy to use. Today in the spotlight we have Bosch.

Founded in 2009, Bosch eBike Systems developed from a start-up to a global player. Nowadays over 70 leading bike brands worldwide trust the components ‘epowered by Bosch’. The high quality and reliability, the powerful drive units as well as the durable batteries ensure meanwhile fun at riding all over the world!

But, what to choose? It can be hard, so below we explain the different power pack and motor options available on our Cargo Bikes, to help you navigate when you are trying to choose your way of transport!

 

Power pack options:

Most bikes have a standard power pack, some slide into the frame, others have a special spot on the bike. We only have 400 or 500wh packs available on our bikes. Best thing is, they are interchangeable, and we always have stock of both. So if your bike of choice has a 400wh battery, but you prefer the 500, no problem! For a small extra we can swap it over.

So, what do we get asked most…. how long/far can you go on a battery? Bosch has a nifty calculator for that! But on average we see that people manage between 30 and 75 km out of 11 battery cycle. It depends on many factors. Have a play with their range assistant, it’s a lot of fun!

Motor options:

HSD Active Line plus is perfect for your kinder drop offACTIVE LINE PLUS

Active Line Plus brings mobility to everyday life and extends your options for spontaneous trips. The quiet yet powerful Drive Unit offers major riding enjoyment. It allows agile handling and fits perfectly inside the frame of the eBike. No disturbing extraneous noises and barely noticeable pedal resistance over 25 km/h. This is a great option on smaller cargo bikes, or if the load isn’t too heave and there are no hills on your commute, kinder drop off etc. It’s the lightest option, and also the cheapest. But if you are conquering some hills with a bike full of little people, it might not be the best option. Great for an easy commute on you HSD or with your furry friend in an Urban Arrow on flat terrain.

It is extremely easy to use and with the different levels of support and gearing it will get you up most hills, this option is perfect if you are commuting on a Vektron, Tinker or HSD S+ and need to do a few hills without braking into a sweat, but also if you have 2 kids in the Urban Arrow and need to do a daycare/kinder run and a ride to the park, this works really well too. Just don’t expect to be able to ride up the Blue mountains and you’ll love the bike!
