At speeds under ten kilometers-per-hour the rider’s efforts go to the back wheel via chain drive and help the Electrom get up to speed. This is also helpful when they encounter a steep hill because the rider’s pedaling helps the electric motor get the vehicle up the hill.
At speeds over ten kilometers-per-hour, rider’s can pedal at a constant speed and their efforts are converted to electricity to supplement the battery. Travelling at that speed with a single 72V/20Ah battery, it has a range of approximately 80 km.
If the operator wants a hard workout they need only pedal a little faster and the resistance increases. If they wish to take it easy, they can pedal slower and the resistance decreases. The system is automatic and no levers or buttons are required to switch between modes.
