E-bikes have become popular around the world. People are buying them because of their convenience and capabilities. But, still, some people consider both e-bikes and traditional bicycles.
However, there are a lot of differences between the two! In the following article, we are going to mention the difference between e-bikes and traditional bicycles.
Make sure to read through the entire article to know the differences & advantages of using e-bikes over traditional bikes.
Difference between e-bikes and traditional bicycles:
Traditional bicycles have simple handlebars, whereas on e-bikes you will see an LCD showing information such as speed, odometer, trips, and battery level. Such information is not available with traditional bicycles. Also, the handlebars of e-bikes are designed to improve aerodynamic efficiency because e-bikes can do higher speeds compared to traditional bicycles.
Hovsco e-bikescome with batteries that last up to 80 miles, and these batteries are designed to tackle the toughest terrains and provide the best ride experience. The best electric bikes have a smart battery management system that comes calibrated with features such as pedal assist to help you to go through the toughest terrains and enjoy your rides. Also, you can charge your e-bikes from your regular wall socket. Such features are missing in traditional bicycles.
E-Bikes come with customizable gears, which means that you can customise and calibrate the gears based on the force required to move the e-bike. For example, You can use a higher gear along with a high pedal assist, which will make your e-bike faster, whereas you can select a lower gear + low pedal assist for cruising and cardio. To make this easier, we have added the torque sensor pedal assist system that measures your force, it will sense your pedalling force in real-time, and adjust the power to achieve a satisfying riding experience.
E-bikes are equipped with powerful motors, for example, our Hovsco electric fat bike comes with a 750-watt brushless hub motor. The motor generates 1032W of peak power and maintains 750 watts of sustained power. 1032W (Peak) 750W (Sustained). The motor is well calibrated, which means that the power supply is managed as per the terrain or the road that you are travelling.
E-bikes look a lot like traditional bicycles, but the main difference that you will notice is the electrical drive system. This will have the motor, battery, and a display system. As explained earlier the battery powers the motor, which assists your pedals, and keeps your bicycle going! Overall, the e-bikes look a lot similar to the traditional e-bikes.
6.Maintenance & repair:
All the mechanical parts such as the pedal, body and chain are similar to that of a traditional bicycle. The general maintenance of the e-bike is quite similar to the traditional e-bikes, whereas you need to do a routine checkup of the motor, battery and gears. All Hovsco e-bikes are created to work for the longest time without any headaches or cost to the e-bike maintenance should be low. You can bring your bike to us and our e-bike specialists will service and make sure that everything is working fine! If you are on a trip, then you can do the general service of your regular bike parts just like a traditional e-bike.
This is where the e-bikes shine! E-bikes are faster than traditional bicycles. E-bikes can go up to the speed of 20 to 28 mph (depending on the type of e-bike). To achieve such speeds you have to run the e-bike on the purely electric mode, keep in mind that this might reduce the range of the e-bike. For example, our Hosco fat tyre e-bike can give a range of 80 miles, but if we run the same on pure EV mode, then it will give a range of 60 miles. But, you must keep in mind that these are not for racing, these are designed to make cycling effortless and make sure that you can easily cruise through all journeys. The motor acts as an assistance to your pedalling and keeps you going through the toughest of the terrains.
8.Rules and regulations:
There are different rules and regulations for e-bikes depending on the government. Some e-bikes do not require any permit or insurance, whereas you would require to have a permit and insurance for specific e-bikes. Therefore, you should always check with your local authority regarding the permit or insurance requirement for your choice of e-bike. You can also contact us and our e-bike specialists are here to guide you through the process.
