MORE INFORMATION YOU MAY FIND HANDY

Handlebars with adjustable stem
Timing of the trip
Walk Assist. The bike is equipped with a handy walk assist feature where you push a button and the bike moves at 6 kph to make the push a breeze.
Battery. The battery is equipped with top quality LG lithium-ion batteries for outstanding performance. The waterproof lithium 48V 13.2Ah battery is an integratedsystem that fits snugly into the frame for a stylish look. The battery can be charged on the bike or removed and charged elsewhere. The charge time varies according to the charge it has, but allow 4 hours for this to be safe. The 13.2Ah battery offers more than enough distance between charges. The total Watt hours are a staggering 634* which is substantially more than the default of 500Ah. This means longer rides between charges.
*Total Amp hours = Voltage X Battery Amps (48 X 13.2 = 634 Watt hours)
Motor. The improved high speed BAFANG brushless rear hub drive motor has a powerful 500W output which offers more than sufficient power even under severe circumstances. It is a low noise motor (<60dB) perfectly fitted in the back hub of the bike. (BAFANG is the leading brand of e-bike motors manufacturers).
EVEN MORE DETAIL
Front suspension. The SMART-e ENDURO XC front hydraulic fork is fitted with a lock out switch to prevent extra absorption when not required (such as riding on a hard surface).
PAS. (Pedal Assist). The bike is equipped with a sensor on the bottom bracket and based on the level PAS you choice, the motor offers more power as you pedal.
Throttle. The bike is also fitted with a thumb throttle on the right side of the handlebar. The throttle overrides the PAS and gives you instant power when required. The CPS (Calibrated Power System) means the higher the PAS level the more throttle power. It offers a smooth increase in power (no jerking) and is also a safety feature. The throttle is ideal when you need power such as when going up a steep hill, you are in the wrong gear or you want to accelerate.
Saddle. The stylish saddle was carefully selected to offer super comfort, even on longer rides. (You may opt for a larger saddle for extra comfort)
