Overview: Electric Bikes and Kits

What are your riding expectations?

On this page ebikes are addressed in the categories Power, How Power is Engaged and Controlled and Range. For battery Ah capacity see the right column.

There is of course more to an ebike than what is covered here, hence we are here to explore with each individual customer which bike or power kit may suit him or her the best. Our sales persons ride their own ebikes near daily, have done so for years, and also do work in the service department.
