Frequently Asked Questions
ABOUT OUR E-BIKES
WHAT MAKES AN E-BIKE DIFFERENT FROM A REGULAR ONE?
An e-bike will make you see cycling in a completely different way. While it doesn’t change the actual act of exercising itself, an e-bike makes the whole process a lot easier and smoother, giving you a much more pleasant experience. You will no longer only get as far as you can, but as far as you want. Our 5 levels of pedaling assistance will help you whenever you want to, or whenever you need it. And in case you’re wondering… using an e-bike is not cheating! E-bikes feature pedal-assist functionality, which means that the motor boosts the power you create with your own pedaling. The benefit of this is that it makes cycling more accessible for everyone. Your rides won’t be obstructed by rough terrain or long distances anymore.
HOW DO I OPERATE MY E-BIKE?
Operating your e-bike is very simple. You can start riding without any pedaling assistance and switch later or you can start with the assistance once from the moment you start riding. Throughout your ride, you can set the pedal-assist to the desired level using the onboard controls, depending on your needs. Enjoy your ride!
HOW DO THE PEDALING ASSISTANCE LEVELS WORK?
Our pedaling assistance features 5 different levels, while a lot of e-bikes on the market only feature 3. You decide how much assistance you want, depending on the speed, the terrain, the distance you want to reach, or how much effort you want to make. Also, the last level is full-assistance, which means no pedaling is needed. Setting the levels of assistance is very easy with our LCD display.
WHAT TYPE OF BATTERY DO THE BES E-BIKES HAVE?
All BES® Electric Bikes have a lithium battery of 10Ah. These powerful batteries guarantee you will achieve maximum performance and autonomy during your rides. The battery is very easy to remove, and the charging time ranges between 4 and 6 hours. Also, all the batteries on the new 2019 models are equipped with the Quick Release system.
HOW LONG CAN I RIDE WITH MY E-BIKE?
Just like any other bike, you can ride as much as you want as long as you are manually pedaling. However, when it comes to using pedaling assistance, the e-bike’s battery can typically last between 25 and 28 miles (this may vary depending on the model, the terrain, the speed, and the height and weight of the user)
WHAT TYPE OF MOTOR DO BES E-BIKES HAVE?
One of our top priorities is to ensure that your e-bike’s motor respects the rules of the country where you live. All BES® motors meet U.S. federal standards outlined in HR727, which guarantees the reliability and safety of electric bicycles. Our 350W motors are located on the rear axle, making it much easier to ride the bicycle, achieving excellent performance while consuming less energy.
Using the pedaling assistance, you can go up to 20 MPH.
HOW FAST CAN I GO WITH THE ASSISTANCE?
WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM RECOMMENDED WEIGHT FOR THE E-BIKES?
All our bicycles have a maximum recommended weight of approx. 242lbs/110kgs.
