    The motor is very important for electric bike, and it is also the main part that distinguishes electric bicycles from traditional bicycles. The motor provides extra power to e-bike riders, helping riders charge up hills, glide when they choose, and ultimately provide flexibility for how they want to ride. It makes riding an easy option, no matter the destination.

     

    Using an ebike is more environmentally friendly than a car, and electric bikes are the best green transportation mode of the decade.

     

    There are many different types of electric bike motors on the market. Before buying an electric bike, learn ahead of time about the type of motor and how it works in the complete system of the ebike. In this blog, we will give a introduction to electric bike motors.

     

    What is an electric bike?

    An e-bike is an electric-assist bike that uses an electric motor to help you. So you can ride it like a normal bike but with less effort. Electric bikes are available in a variety of styles, from commuter bikes to full-suspension mountain bikes.

     

    There are two main types of e-bikes – accelerator assist and pedal assist. E-bike motors work by automatically turning on the motor when you press the pedals or the gas pedal.

     

    Pedal e-bikes are the most popular option. When you pedal the ebike, the motor is powered up and it works. In contrast, throttle-assisted e-bikes operate when you accelerate the throttle.

     

    The Importance of Electric Bike Motors

    It’s the presence of the motor that makes every bike ride so easy. If you pedal a long distance to work on a bike and feel exhausted, installing a motor can save you power, start your engine and coast right away.

     

    Motors give you flexibility in how you can get to your destination. All Senada Bikes have pedal assist and are powered by electric motors.

     

    About the electric motor

    The electric bike motor is powered by a rechargeable battery. The charging time of the battery depends on the remaining power. In general, it takes about 3 hours for an electric bike to reach 80% capacity, and it takes 5-7 hours to fully charge.

     

    As for how far you can go on a single charge, it depends on a variety of factors, including how much throttle and pedal assist you use, the type of terrain you ride on and the weight of the rider. In general, you can go nearly 50 miles without charging the battery.

     

    A display above the e-bike handlebar lets you know how many miles you have left, and don’t worry about staying on track or running out of power during a ride.

    Meaning of watts on electric bikes

    A typical cruising speed for a non-sport rider (about 9 mph) pedalling requires about 30 watts, same amount of energy as a normal walk. Top speed is up to 20 mph and requires 220 watts due to increased air resistance – more than most non-athletes can handle.

    Riding a mild gradient of 10% faster than walking requires 150 watts – enough to keep most riders breathing and sweating profusely.

    A quality racer can put out 400 watts in an hour and over 1000 watts for a short sprint to the finish at the end of the race.

     

    About Electric Bike Energy

    The energy of the electric bicycle comes from the battery, which supplies the electric motor of the bicycle to generate power. Electricity is measured in watt-hours, which means how many watts a battery can deliver in an hour.

    Typical e-bike batteries range from about 300 watt-hours (abbreviated WH) to about 1,000 WH. The last is usually expressed as 1 kilowatt-hour (kWh), and thousand is a prefix that means 1,000.

     

    Another number to look out for is the watt-hours used per mile driven. Typically between 10 and 20 WH per mile, depending on the bike, your driving speed, and how high the electric assist is.

    A small 300-watt battery electric bike can travel 15 to 30 miles. If you want to ride long distances, you should get a bike with a bigger battery.

     

    I hope this article can help you understand the power of electric bicycles, etc. If you want to know more about electric bicycles, you can follow me!
