Hi, I'm Laďa and this is eBike 101 These powerful electric bikes are a whole new category of transport. It stands somewhere between the bike and the motorcycle. You can use it as a normal motorcycle just by adding throttle and selecting one of the three power modes. You can also pedal on it like on any bike, only with a difference in weight. The bike consists of a frame, a flashlight, a motor and a BMS, which means a battery monitor system. On this particular model with a 3.2 kWh flashlight, I was able to drive 80 km on a charge, to the highest performance mode. These are strong !!! My friend has a prototype that gives a 17kW peak! It rises to the rear at a speed of 60km / h.
Drifting, overtaking cars and leaving motorcycles behind are achievable, thanks to their light weight. The average weight is around 65kg and the twist is incredible! You don't have to shift gears so the acceleration is crazy! The maximum speed depends on your engine, but it is normal to drive up to 110 km / h. One cool feature that some bikes have is the ability to recharge the battery with regenerative braking. This flashlight is composed of 18650 cells, the same standard used by Tesla cars. I charge 1400W on average, and charging takes about 1.5 hours. Or I charge slowly from the solar all day. The biggest advantage of these bikes is cheap transport. Electricity is cheap and available everywhere. You can charge at home, at work, in a cafe or at car charging stations. Electric bikes don't even require much maintenance. Most maintenance is the same as any bike. You have to lubricate the chain, replace the brake pads or change the tires. The price of these eBikes varies depending on what parts you want and who builds them for you. These strong ones are sold somewhere between 4600-6200 euros.
If you are interested, send me a message and ask. We develop them and sometimes we have a few for sale. You can clearly build such a bike yourself. But it is important to keep in mind that you need sufficient knowledge of how to distribute high voltage, control high temperatures, mechanical skills, torque distribution, flashlights and ideally experience with bikes or motorcycles. REMEMBER! If you do not have this knowledge, you risk fire, explosion and electric shock. If you decide to build a bike, you can appreciate the table I created with all the components, the corresponding prices and links. Email me at the address below and I'll share it with you for a few dollars. It is an ideal machine for local exploration, commuting or hardcore riding.
It is quiet and feels sophisticated compared to motorcycles. I especially like driving them in our car and exploring new places for free. During the day they stay in the car under the bed where I charge them slowly from the solariums or I can charge them while driving faster from the alternator when I drive. This way, the bikes are always loaded and ready for a new adventure. We travel full time with these ebikes, and if you want to see where we are at them right now, follow my girlfriend Margaret's Instagram at @curlyhaircamping. I'm a photographer, so I often use them to search for sites or just to ramp up, often both, and you'll find me on instagram like @panorama_mann Thanks a lot for watching and see you next time next video.
