How can I optimise the range of your electric bike?

- Aug 03, 2018-

There are a couple of tips and tricks that can aid the range that your bike will take you.

  • Cadence: Slow pedalling is costly in terms of energy, whereas keeping your cadence above 50 revolutions per minute can optimise your drive unit.

  • Weight: Less luggage will keep the total weight of the bike down and keep your ebike running for longer.

  • Starting & braking:  Just like a car, it's more effective to keep going the longer distance with a constant similar speed.

  • Gear shifting: Keeping in the correct gear will ensure the bike is more efficient, some of our ebikes do this automatically.

  • Tyre pressure: Always inflate tyres to the maximum permissible tyre pressure.
