How does an eBike work?

Our eBikes and are fully motorised to offer multiple riding options. You can choose full motor power (where no peddling is required), assisted riding (which combines motor and pedal power), or you can ride your eBike using only pedal power as you would a traditional bicycle. Our electric scooters have different power modes so you can choose your desired power for your commute.

You can expect to ride around 35km on a fully charged battery when you choose full motor power. Combining your own pedal power throughout your journey will help to get you further (around 60km) with assisted riding. You can choose full pedal power on days you want to ride your eBike as you would a traditional bicycle, or after your battery has been spent on particularly long journeys. Our scooters have different see batteries and different size motors, contact us today to find the best e-scooter for you
