How it works
An electic bike is an up-to-date alternative for a traditional bike. Unlike typical two-wheelers, electric bikes support the ride with an in-wheel electric motor. An electric bike provides noiseless ride without excessive effort of the cyclist. Electric bikes are common all over the world- both among older and younger users. Considered as a perfect mean of transport around a crowded urban areas or a great idea for recreation.
Driving modes to fit your style and needs
Ecobike e-bikes offer 3 different driving support modes. You can choos whatever mode suits you and change it as you drive anytime
Traditional bike ride
You can use an e-bike in a standard way with the motor turned off. It does not weigh much more than a traditional bike
Smart driving assistance
The motor starts its work upon pedaling. The quicker you go, the faster it accelerates. Once you stop pedaling or brake, the motor disconnects automatically.
The powerful motor can fully take over your driving effort and let you reach your destination fast. Perfect for your daily commute
What is an electric bike? How does an electric bike work?
Each electric bike consists of three key elements which accelerate it. These are: the battery (accumulator), electric motor and electrical controller- controlling the work of the entire vehicle. Except for the accelerating mechanism, an electric bikes’ construction doesn’t vary from a traditional bike that we’ve known for years.
An electric bike battery is the most important power source of the vehicle. Aluminium Ecobike bikes are equipped in efficient li-ion batteries successfully used in modern laptops and mobile phones. The battery life is approx. counted for 500 chargings. The battery power may decrease with time, that’s why its replacement is advised. One full recharging of battery is sufficient to cover the distance of 40-60 km, which in total gives us 20 000km! There are two battery voltage available: 24V and 36V. A number of kilometers traveled on one charging depends on the battery capacity.
Electric Ecobike are accelerated with a modern 250 W brushless motor. This is the highest power allowed by European Union. The brushless motor is completely maintenance-free and practically fail-save. It’s great advantage is efficient power use maintaining a longer ride. To cover up a 100km distance, the motor uses the electicity of a total 1zł cost!!! Thanks to the motor an electric bike attains the speed of 25km/h also regualted by EU.
Controller and display
The controller is responsible for the work of the motor, and for the power transfer directly from the battery to the motor. The controller joins all the electric wires together. It cooperates with a sensor attached to a bottom bracket creating an intelligent electric assistant system. The sensor registers the cranks’ rotations, senses cyclists’ intentions and automatically, with the controllers’ help, transfers the info to the motor to run the riding support function. In electric bikes equipped with a gas lever the controller cooperates with the motor by the lever.
Most electric bikes offered by Ecobike have a throttle grip that is locked at the factory and allows you to turn on the bicycle assistant, which involves electric assistance not only while riding, but also in a situation where we need to ride the bike somewhere.
