E-Bike Systems

 

There are numerous e-bike drive systems available, each using either a mid-drive pedal-assist or a wheel (hub) assist motor. Mid-drive systems like those from Bosch or Shimano provide power through the cranks and pedals of the bike and enhance your pedal stroke -- so you must be pedaling to engage the assist.



BOSCH


Mid-drive systems now make up approximately 90% of the e-bike market, and Bosch is a worldwide leader in the category. Their mid-drive system is light weight, centrally located on the bike, and the direct power is extremely efficient. With 4 different drive units, and various battery options, Bosch makes systems for electric bikes designed for recreational riding, commuting, off road riding and even cargo bikes.

SHIMANO STEPS


Similar to Bosch, Shimano offers a mid-drive system for e-bike manufacturers. Shimano's systems are lightweight and smooth riding. With the drive unit placed around the crank, the bicycle's center of gravity is kept low. The 3 tiered controller system gives you the option to run low, medium or high assist levels, or run the bike without assist.
