The minimalist electric bike is equipped with an 860 W motor and can travel up to 50 km on a single charge. But what is unique about it? Let’s figure it out.
The electric bike is assembled on the basis of the female model
The first thing that catches the eye is the battery suspended from below. Despite the apparent proximity to the wheel, its contact with the battery is excluded, even with the maximum travel of the suspension fork.
The quick-detachable 48V battery with a capacity of 9 Ah allows you to drive 25 km without using the pedals and up to 50 km in pedaling assist mode. It weighs only 2.4 kg, so you can take the second one with you in your backpack to increase the power reserve by 2 times.
And since we have already mentioned the assistant mode, it should be said that here its operation is provided by the PAS sensor installed in the carriage assembly.
Now let’s move on to the most important thing — the engine and its mount. At first glance, nothing out of the ordinary — the motor is installed in place of the rear wheel hub. But! This bike has an axle mount!
Those who have come across electrification of bicycles know that it is almost impossible to install a motor-wheel in an axle mount, but Electron Bikes has developed its own unique solution.
If before that the mount meant shifting the motor axis downward, beyond the dropouts, now the motor axis remains in place, although it is modified in a certain way.
The compact 860 W motor with a 2-stage gearbox is securely fixed, and the corresponding structural elements are made to fix the axle and prevent it from turning.
A compact controller Electronbikes 5020, assembled on the basis of the solution of the Russian manufacturer Markus EVO from Nizhny Novgorod, is used to control the engine.
For safety, the hydraulic brakes are equipped with body sensors that turn off the engine when the handles are pressed. They are made of anodized aluminum, thanks to which they fit harmoniously into the design.
On the left side of the steering wheel there is a liquid crystal display that displays all the necessary ride parameters and allows you to select the degree of engine assistance when pedaling.
If you are tired of turning the pedals, or there is an ascent ahead and you need to accelerate, you can use the throttle handle installed on the steering wheel on the right.
The bike turned out to be beautiful in itself, and thanks to the compact electrical components, it also remained quite light — only 18 kg, which is far from the last meaning for the girl.
