Electric Bike Motors: The Heart of Electric Bikes
Electric Bike Motors: The Heart of Electric Bikes
In many ways, conventional bicycles and electric bikes are very similar. They both have two wheels, don’t require gasoline, and they offer a flexible, active transportation option. However, there is one big difference between the two, and that is a different world – the motor.
The motor provides e-bike riders with extra power, helping them charge up hills, glide when they choose, and ultimately provide flexibility for how they want to ride. It makes riding an easy choice no matter the destination.
All e-bike motors are different, though. Before choosing an e-bike, it is important to understand the type of motor that powers it and how it works in the complete system of the bike. Don’t worry, you don’t need to be a mechanic to get this feature. Here we break down the basics so that they are as easy to understand as our bikes.
Why Motors Matter
In the simplest terms, the electric bike motor makes every ride as easy as you want it to be. Want to start exercising and pedaling? Go for it; you can pedal an e-bike just like a conventional bike.
But if you want to look (and smell) fresh on the way to work, start your engine and coast right away. Want to mix it up and do some pedaling, but say hell to the hills? During any given ride, you can switch the power you want at any given time.
Motors give you maximum flexibility in how you can get to your destination. All of our bikes have pedal assist and are powered by an electric motor. How much help you need is up to you.
Our e-bikes all have five pedal assist modes that you can switch between at any time depending on the type of riding you want.
Our e-bikes are also equipped with a throttle. When you push the throttle into gear with your thumb, you get that extra burst of power to power the pedaling, or you can kick back and let the bike do all the work for you, no pedaling required. This is a great option for those times when you don’t want to sweat.
Hub drive vs mid drive motor?
When you’re shopping for a bike, you’re likely to come across two types of motors – hub-drive motors and mid-drive motors. The main difference between the two is where they are located. The hub-drive motor is centered on the front or rear of the bike, while the mid-drive motor is centered on the bike, hidden inside the bottom bracket.
Generally speaking, mid-drive motors feel the most like conventional bikes, and those who want ultra-high performance tend to prefer bikes equipped with them. Designed for off-road challenges, its mid-drive motor gives the bike the torque and power it needs to tackle rough terrain like sand, gravel and dirt, but it’s on city streets when the toughest terrain might be speed bumps can also be handled well.
Hub motors are generally less complicated and less expensive, as are the bikes that use them. Our City and Comfort bikes are equipped with in-wheel motors. They’re still nimble, powerful, and easy to ride, but they offer a simpler and more cost-effective option if most of your riding will be on city streets rather than road. They are also generally better suited for many miles at higher speeds.
Our electric motors are powered by rechargeable batteries. All of our bikes come with these removable but lockable weatherproof batteries.
The charging time of the battery depends on the remaining power. Other people’s bikes take about 3 hours each to reach 80% capacity and 7 hours to fully charge. While our bike reached 80% capacity in about 2.5 hours, a full charge took about 5 hours.
As for how far you can go on a single charge, it depends on a variety of factors, including how much throttle and pedal assist you use, the type of terrain you ride on and the weight of the rider. In general, though, you can go nearly 50 miles without charging the battery.
And don’t worry about staying on track or running out of power while riding. Each of our bikes comes with an indicator built into the handlebar to let you know how many miles you have left.
How fast can you get where you want to go? It also depends on a few different factors, but no matter what the situation, our bikes were pretty snappy. With pedal assist, you can go up to 20 mph. It’s up to you and your legs if you want to go faster, but at 20 mph you’ll get you where you’re going at a pretty decent pace.
A ride for everyone
The best thing about motors is that they make the bike a great choice for just about anyone. You don’t have to be very fit or focused on crossing the finish line in record time. Even if you haven’t ridden a bike since you were a kid or have bad knees, an e-bike is a great way to get back in the saddle. Riders of all ages find them practical, safe, comfortable, fun and dynamic.
Whether it’s commuting to work, out shopping for groceries or exploring the trails in your area, this is your journey, your way. No need to find a parking space, no valet parking attendants to pay, and no need to worry about getting too tired when you arrive at your destination. This motor can help you when you need it.
People from all walks of life – from retirees to busy parents, office workers and adventurers – are realizing just how much of an impact a motor can have when cycling.
An e-bike is not a car, but there are very few things you can do in a car that an e-bike can’t. However, on the other hand, you can do a lot of things on an e-bike that you can’t do on a car.
Just to name a few…you can’t fold up a car for easy storage and transport like an e-bike. You can’t ride to a trail and ride directly on that trail with a car, but you can use an electric bike. You can’t feel the wind in your hair, the sun on your face, or your workout when you’re driving, but you can ride an e-bike.
While both can take you to your final destination, the e-bike journey is more peaceful and enjoyable. Electric bikes change lifestyles in all the best ways, including more fresh air and active exercise in your daily life.
But what about luggage? No, our bikes don’t have a trunk, but that doesn’t mean you can’t carry groceries, gear, or most other things you want with you. All of our bikes have an integrated rear rack to help carry what you want. You can strap baskets, bags or other items directly to the rack, or if it’s cost effective for you to haul often, you want to buy a set of racks that can fit on the rear rack and let you haul more.
have kids? With the ultra-rugged Hotebike models, you can take them anywhere! Put a rear-mounted child seat on the back of your bike and you can travel with kids up to 40 pounds. For older kids, you can install a trailer or trailer.
So yes, when it comes to cycling, the motor matters. They are the heart of electric bikes and what sets them apart from other two-wheeled rides. But what really matters to the rider is the overall integration with the bike and how everything works together. So, take the time to understand all the features of the bike, including feel, fit, and factors other than the motor.
