Electric bicycle (also called “e-bike”) is a bicycle with an integrated electric motor to provide additional power and speed. This enables a cyclist to ride farther and faster than with a traditional bike, and they can ride with greater ease and enjoyment. No longer do hills and wind get in the way of an enjoyable bike ride.
E-bikes are designed to complement pedaling, not replace it. Far different from mopeds and motorbikes, e-bikes must be pedaled, do not exceed 20 miles per hour on most models, and are also silent without exhaust.
There are four key components to an electric bicycle: a battery, a motor, a controller, and a pedal assist system (PAS), which can provide anywhere from a small electric power assist to a completely effortless electric vehicle experience.
