How do I select the power assist level?
There is an easy-to-use button on the top tube that enables you to set the level of assistance that you require and also displays the battery charge remaining.
How will I know how much battery I have left?
The button mounted on the top tube indicates the remaining battery life at a glance using a simple traffic light system. White= 75% capacity or more remaining, Green= 50-75%, Amber= 25-50%, Red= 15-25%, Slow Red Flash= 10-15% and Rapid Red Flash= 10% or
less remaining. You can also keep track of the remaining battery life using the MAHLE SmartBike Systems companion app.
Do I need to pedal to ride this e-bike?
Yes, our e-bikes are pedal-assisted models and require rider input at all times.
I’m worried I won’t have full control over the bike.
There’s no need to worry; being a pedal-assisted model means you are always in full control. When a power assist level is selected the motor simply provides a little extra boost whilst you pedal and does not take over.
Do I need tax, insurance or a licence to ride the e-bikes?
No, pedal-assisted electric bikes do not require you to hold a valid driver’s licence, pay any road tax or take out insurance.
How do I charge the battery?
To charge the battery, you simply plug the bike into a household socket using the supplied charger and cable. (The optional range extender can also charge the main battery whilst you are on the move).
