This kit contains everything you could need, and some extras, to convert a regular adult bike into an electric bike. Its key feature is the very hiqh quality super long life 10Ah lithium iron phosphate battery that we’ve put through extensive testing. The hub motors that come with this kit have high torque and are able to withstand very rough treatment for years.
All motor powers look exactly the same and cannot be told apart. It is the coiling within the motors and the motor controller that regulate the level of power. This is our most highly recommended kit for a long lasting and high performance electric bicycle that we will fully support for years to come. You need a strong set of forks to safely install this kit on your bicycle. Ensure you install a torque bar. Steel forks are best, Chro-moly the best choice. Don’t install it on aluminium or carbon fibre forks. If you are unsure then see if a fridge magnet sticks to the forks, if it sticks then you’ll be ok. These kits come with a 1yr warranty against any product failure and assistance via phone or email is free for forever. Approximate ranges and speeds of this kit with light pedalling are:
- 200W: 40 km range
- 250W: 35 km range, 25 km/hr assisted top speed
