Do I need to pedal to ride this ebike?
Yes, our e-bikes are pedal-assisted models which require rider input at all times.
I’m worried that I won’t have full control over the bike?
There’s no need to worry, being a pedal-assisted model means you are in full control at all times. 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 ebikes?
No, pedal-assisted electric bikes do not require you to hold a valid driver’s licence, pay any form of 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).
Can I ride this in the wet?
The electric components used on our e-bikes are IP54 rated. They can be used in inclement weather conditions and are protected against splashing, but not against full immersion or when subjected to pressurised water from a hose pipe or jet wash.
When transporting the bike on the outside of a vehicle a waterproof cover should be utilised to ensure the protection of the electronic components from water damage during such transportation. As with any bike, we would recommend thoroughly
cleaning and drying the bike after any wet weather rides to maintain the peak performance of your bike.
