What is an Ebike?

An ebike is a bicycle that has an electric drive system to provide extra pedal power to assist you when you are riding. Hence the terms “pedal-assist” “power-assist” or “pedelec” (a more European term) that you will often hear them referred to as. It is your pedalling that turns that motor on so you still get to cycle, and you have different levels of power you can select to make your cycling as hard or as easy as you want.

Australia adopted the European standards in 2012 and today most e-bikes are pedal-assist with 250W motors. The technology that makes them such a joy to ride is sophisticated and easy to use, hence the surge in popularity of electric bikes over the past few years.

How do EBikes work?

  • An ebike is a bicycle with an electric drive system to provide additional power to assist your own pedal power
  • The drive system includes a motor, battery and a user interface (a display or an app) for you to operate it
  • Once you turn it on you simply need to select which power level you want and start pedalling. Easy
  • Change your power levels as you need while riding, even to 'off' if you want, and just grin when your power makes the hard bits easy and fun
