E-BIKE IS THE REVOLUTIONARY BIKE YOU NEED TO OWN

Electronic bike or e-bike is rapidly gaining popularity in the global market.

It is being preferred more than fuel-powered motor bikes.

E-bikes is not like the fuel-powered vehicles. They do not release greenhouse gases that cause global warming.

According to reports, personal vehicles are leading contributors to greenhouse gases. This has brought a sensible awakening among people.

People now use e-bikes instead of fuel-powered vehicles for short distance travel.

 

 E-BIKE REVOLUTION:

E-bike is bringing a revolution in the system of commuting. It is an inspirational initiative to counter global warming.

In sync to this uprising, various countries have introduced legal laws to support e-bikes.

 

 CHINA PROMOTES E-BIKES:

The Chinese government is starting to notice the benefits of e-bikes.

According to reports of Technavio: “E-bikes do not emit harmful gases that cause pollution. It also do not cause noise pollution.”

 

BATTERY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM:

China has recently opened management systems for e-bike batteries in their market.

The battery management systems will make e-bikes more efficient. It will enhance the energy generation of e-bikes. The battery management systems also make e-bikes lighter.

HOW DO E-BIKES FUNCTION?

E-bikes have three parts: Battery, Electric Motor & Drivetrain.

Battery gives power to the electric motor which in turn triggers the drivetrain. As a result of this the speed of the e-bike gets boosted.

 

Allow me to explain the three parts of e-bikes in details:

ELECTRIC MOTOR:

Electric motor is the core of an e-bike.

Based on the positioning, electric motors of e-bikes are of three types – mid-drive motor, rear hub motor and front hub motor.

In some e-bikes motor is fitted at the centre near the drivetrain. This motor is called mid-drive motor. It triggers the drivetrain to forward motion.

Electric motor is also fitted in the rear hub of e-bikes. This rear hub motor rotates the rear tire. In this case, the rider will feel a push forward.

E-bikes also come with electric motors fitted on the front hub. In this case, the electric motor rotates the front tire. The rider will feel a pull forward.

 

BATTERY:

The e-bike batteries available in the market can run up to distance of 95 kilometers in one single charge. However, it totally relies of the rider.

The rider can save battery power by using his own strength to pedal all the way to destination. This is called Pedal only style of riding e-bike.

Or, the rider can also activate the electric motor by rotating the pedals of his e-bike. The power generated from the battery will boost the speed making the ride easy. This is called Pedal assist riding.

The rider can go full electric mode. In electric mode he has to only rotate the throttle. The e-bike runs on its own without the rider rotating the pedals . This riding style is called Electronic only. But it causes severe drain of battery.

 

DRIVETRAIN:

Drivetrain is a very important part of e-bikes. It acts as a booster to the pedals and chain-box of e-bikes.

In e-bikes with mid-drive electric motors, drivetrain is powered instantly making pedalling easier for the rider.

E-bikes gears are attached to drivetrain to make riding easy.

HOW LONG DO YOU NEED TO CHARGE E-BIKE BATTERIES?

Typically, e-bike batteries need maximum of 8 hours charging. It generates around 300 to 500 watts of power.

We suggest you to buy good capacity batteries that take less time to charge.

Good quality e-bike batteries will complete charging within 3 to 4 hours time. It can generate 800 to 900 watts of power in one charge. E-bikes with good batteries have better longevity.

E-bikes today come with lithium ion batteries similar to laptops and smartphones. Lithium ions are powerful batteries and give e-bikes extra boost.
