With a simple throttle mechanism (usually a twist grip type), you can simply activate the motor without pedalling, increasing riding range by decreasing power usage.
An e-bike’s power consumption depends on factors like bike weight, speed and terrain; select one with an appropriate battery to suit your cycling lifestyle.
Motors are essential components of an e-bike, making pedaling farther and faster without tiring out as quickly possible.
Permanent magnet AC motors use alternating current to set their rotor spinning and are the most efficient and reliable type of motor available for e-bikes.
Cadence sensors work by sensing when a rider pedals and turning on the motor accordingly, providing cheaper alternatives than torque sensors that may feel unresponsive or laggy.
A torque sensor magnifies every pedaling effort, giving a sensational superhuman-esque experience. Though more costly than cadence sensors, torque sensors have the advantage of being less bulky and laggy; perfect for riders seeking more natural feeling rides. Bosch, Shimano Steps and Fazua all use torque sensors.
An electric bike’s battery is at the core of its operation. It provides electrical signals that regulate motor and other components as well as determining ride time without needing recharging. Batteries are measured in terms of watt-hours, amps and voltage; Voltaic emissions measure current strength while amps represent power drawn from them.
The size and type of battery determine the range and capacity of an e-bike on a full charge, with some being removable while others built into its frame. Removable batteries make e-bikes easier to transport while charging anywhere – however, theft could still occur with removable ones; built-in batteries offer greater security as they require special tools to access. Capacity and range may depend on factors like terrain type, rider weight and motor efficiency;
As opposed to some eBikes that rely on throttle-powered models for propulsion, our pedal-assist models only deliver motor power when you pedal – helping you climb hills more easily while avoiding lactic acid build-up in your legs.
Cadence sensors detect the speed at which your pedals are turning and use that information to determine the level of PAS power applied by PAS. While this works efficiently, it may become cumbersome or annoying for riders who prefer pedalling lightly and receiving power only when pushing hard.
Torque sensors measure how hard you are pedaling, then provide proportional assistance based on rider input. We employ this approach on all TUOTEG bikes; this makes controlling power use much simpler and extends battery range significantly; hence their popularity for commuter use.
People tend to envision electric bikes as fast, effortless vehicles capable of zipping past traffic lights and climbing hills without breaking a sweat. Unfortunately, most E-bikes were not designed to reach such high speeds; rather they’re limited by regulations which set a maximum speed limit (e.g. 20mph in the US).
Class 1 E-bikes have been specifically engineered to achieve higher speeds, making them ideal for faster commutes or countryside tours. Once riders reach 28mph, their motor provides pedal assist up until it disengages, leaving further speed solely dependent on pedaling effort from the rider. This type of E-bike makes for an efficient commute and leisurely countryside tour experience!
