Do you still get exercise on an electrical assistance bike?
You have to pedal to go forward!
The electrical assistance supplements your pedalling to help you reach your destination without overly sweating, while maintaining a pleasant pedalling pace throughout your ride.
The motor stops when you stop pedalling and when braking.
Rear wheel motor: 36 volts, 250 Watt MAX.
It has an engine torque up to 35 Nm. This value allows you to assess the ease with which the bike can tackle certain obstacles (a climb, for example)
The engine is also linked to a cadence sensor that provides electrical assistance based on your pedalling motion.
LG/Samsung lithium-ion cells
Charge time = 5 hours to a full recharge
Battery life: 30 km maximum in mode 3 (maximum assistance level), 60 km maximum in mode 1 (minimum assistance) for a user weighing 70kg on relatively flat terrain.
NB: Battery life may vary depending on the weight being transported (user weight + weight of any items being carried), the gradient (uphill) and weather conditions (low temperatures reduce battery life).
An LED control console is right next to your left grip so you don't have to let go of the handlebar to choose from the 3 assistance modes available: Economy, Normal and Sport.
The remaining battery life is shown by an LED cursor on the same screen.
You can also control the headlights.
Off Mode - Deactivated (the battery is not used).
Mode 1 - Economy => assistance up to 15 km/h max
Mode 2 - Normal => assistance up to 22 km/h max
Mode 3 - Sport => assistance up to 25 km/h max
"Walk" Mode => helps you to push the bike when you're walking alongside it (assistance up to 6 km/h)
Built-in front and rear AXA lighting, 20 LUX intensity.
Can be seen from 150m at the rear, and illuminates 30m at the front.
Lighting powered by the bike battery.
28" double-wall aluminium wheels with 36 spokes for greater durability.
622x19C rims (for tyre widths ranging from 28mm to 62mm)
700*35/45 inner tube with Schrader valve
700x45C gumwall tyres with reinforcement against punctures
The ETRTO 44-622 label, for example, means that the tyre width (inflated, edge to edge) is 44 mm and its inner diameter is 622 mm. This notation allows you to make an accurate match to the correct rims to use.
Note: It's normal for tyres to lose pressure over time, since an inner tube is slightly porous. So regularly check your pressure
Tektro front and rear V-brakes
Braking sensors built into the levers to cut the electrical assistance to the engine when the brakes are engaged.
Aluminium brake levers
Grips with lugs to attach the following Decathlon lights:
Wide Elops saddle is very comfortable, even on long rides.
Accessories / Equipment
Your bike has a built-in pannier rack for attaching pannier bags or a child seat, mudguards, a chainguard, an aluminium kickstand, and a bell.
And of course, your bike comes with a charger.
25.9 kg (including pedals and battery)
Maximum authorised weight (including the weight of the bike => cyclist + bike + accessories): 125 kg
1) Regular tyre pressure checks (between 3.5 and 5 bar). If the pressure in the tyres is too low, you will lose in performance as well as in battery range.
2) Regular drive train maintenance (especially the chain, which must be cleaned and lubricated)
3) In case of long term storage (>1 month) without using the bike, use the "extended sleep" battery mode to prevent any malfunction.
Cleaning / Repairs
Before performing any work on your electric bike yourself (cleaning, electrical or mechanical maintenance), you must turn off the bike and remove the battery.
Use of the bike on the coast
The marine environment (air, ocean spray) is extremely corrosive for mechanical and metallic parts, so it is strongly recommended to regularly lubricate the entire drive train of your bike and clean the positioning elements with a damp cloth from time to time (handlebar, seat post, etc) to remove any salt deposits that may accumulate.
Lifetime warranty on frame and fork.
2-year warranty on parts, with normal use of the bike.
Locks with a key (2 identical keys provided with the bike).
So the battery is removable for recharging (at the office, for example...).
