    Frequently Asked
    Questions
    Will I have full control of the bike?

    Yes, this is a pedal-assisted e-bike and always requires rider input. When a power assistance level is selected the motor provides a smooth and consistent boost of power to each pedal stroke.

    Do I need tax or insurance to ride this bike?

    No, as a pedal-assisted e-bike, limited to a maximum speed of 25kph/15mph you are not required to hold a valid driver’s licence, pay tax, or take out insurance.

    How much does it weigh?

    The bike with all of its integrated accessories weighs in at 19.5kgs in a medium size.

    What size bike do I need?

    The Hybrid AL e Trail is available in Small/Medium to fit rider heights 5’0” to 5’6” (155-167cm) and Large/X-Large 5’6” to 5’9” (168-175cm).

    What is the range of the Hybrid AL e Trail?

    This is dependent upon many factors including rider weight/fitness, route profile and ambient temperature. A rider of 90kgs, on a varied route that includes climbs, descents and flats can expect an average distance of approximately 60-miles.

    How do I control how much power the motor delivers?

    Three power settings are available at the press of a button, low, medium, and max assistance, so you can select the setting that you need to suit the terrain. The bike comes fitted with an iWoc Trio control unit that is mounted for convenience to the handlebars. You can cycle through the assistance levels simply by clicking the upper or lower buttons without having to remove your hands from the handlebars or take your eyes off the road ahead. Check out our blog for a step by step guide to how to operate our e-bikes.

    How fast can I go on the Hybrid AL e Trail?

    The motor system will provide assistance up to 15mph, at which point (by law with all e-bikes in the UK) the motor will cut out. If you then drop below 15mph the system will automatically kick back in when required.

    Can I ride this bike in the wet?

    The electric components used on our e-bikes are IP54 rated. They are protected against splashing, but not against full immersion. The electric bike should never be subjected to pressurised water from a hose pipe or jet wash. Failure to adhere to this may result in damage to the electrical components that comprise the motor system. When transporting the bike on the outside of a vehicle a waterproof cover should be used to ensure the protection of the electronic components from water ingress during transportation.

    How long does it take to charge the battery?

    From fully depleted, the battery reaches full capacity in just 3.5 hours and can be charged from any household power socket.

    How will I know how much battery remains?

    The handlebar mounted iWoc Trio control button has built in LED’s which display how much battery power remains. It displays this using a simple traffic light system, white indicates a full charge, progressing down through Green, Amber, and finally Red to indicate that there is 25% or less remaining. The Pulsar One computer also displays relevant system data so you can keep track of your remaining battery power and have all of the ride date at your fingertips.

    What is the widest tyre that I can fit?

    The widest tyre that can be accommodated is 40mm.

    What if I get a puncture?

    It is just as simple as fixing a puncture on a normal bike, except you first need to disconnect the rear wheel by unclipping the connector at the chainstay and releasing the wheel nuts on the axle. Once the puncture has been repaired you simply bolt the wheel back on and connect the cable once again.

    What sort of a pump will I need?

    The most common type of inner tube valve is the Presta high-pressure valve, and this is what this bike comes fitted with. There are a couple of options in terms of a pump, firstly you want something that can be carried either on the bike or in a jersey pocket. The most popular types are.

    • Mini Pump – A small pump that normally includes a clip that can be bolted onto a bottle cage mount on the bike or that is small enough to fit into a cycling jersey pocket or bag.
    • CO2 pump – CO2 pumps use a pressurised CO2 canister to inflate the inner tube, much faster and much more efficient. The only drawback is that a full canister is required for a roadside repair.
    • Hybrid Pump – Some models of pump are compatible with CO2 canisters as well as having the option to inflate the tube normally. The best of both worlds.
