Why buy an Electric bike?
A fantastic mode of transport, the benefits of cycling are seemingly endless. It’s low-impact and can be as challenging or as leisurely as you wish, is proven to bring huge benefits to our societies, mental and physical health, and the environment and economy; not to mention the sheer joy that comes from exploring the world around you on two wheels.
Ebikes, or electric bikes, give you all of these things, but with a boost. Whether it's aiding a long commute, helping you to get back into cycling after a long break or injury, or setting off on an exciting journey, an ebike gives you an extra push when you need it. Before delving further into how ebikes work, you may be wondering if this extra boost means that there are fewer health benefits available than riding a "regular" bicycle. This is in fact not the case – studies have shown that ebike riders are likely to ride more often and further than their non-powered counterparts*. The cardiovascular benefits of riding an ebike are like regular rides, as those who ride ebikes are more likely to gain higher speeds and greater elevations.
An ebike is a bicycle with a battery-powered motor providing electric pedal assistance. There are often different riding modes that you can set based on how much power you want to add to your ride.
Besides a pedal rotation sensor several high-end ebikes, such as the Brompton Folding Electric bike, also feature a smart torque sensor to measure the exact amount of pressure you put on the pedals to offer a smoother and more direct assistance. It adds power the more you pedal, meaning, for example, it helps when you’re going uphill and need to maintain your speed.
Most ebikes display the battery level and assistance level on the bike itself. On a Brompton Electric, our lightweight folding ebike has its rechargeable battery, display and luggage integrated into one piece and can be easily connected to the specially designed front carrier block on the front frame of the bike with a simple click.
The Brompton Electric bike also has the perk of USB charging, automatic front and rear lighting and Bluetooth to connect to your device.
