Five e-bike facts about pedelecs etc.
Do you have questions about pedelecs and e-bikes? We have summarised the five most important facts for you. So that no questions remain unanswered!
No. 1: Our e-bikes are pedelecs
The Pedelecs electronic motor only works alongside pedalling. That means: the engine doesn’t start under its own momentum. The significant difference to the e-bike is therefore the type of motor. The motor of the Eurobike pedelecs sits in the middle of the bike and can be adjusted individually. Depending on the hill, you get more or less support.
No. 2: Condition differences are easily compensated for
It’s common knowledge: In the group there are a few hard-working athletes at the top, many cyclists in the middle and a few stragglers. The slower riders in the group can also keep up with e-bikes. Those cyclists who don’t feel fit enough for a whole week on the bike will be particularly surprised how well the e-bike supports them.
No. 3: E-bikes from Eurobike can travel up to 180kilometres
The rental models from Eurobike are based on KTM bikes with a powerful battery. The range depends on several factors, such as how much assistance you need while cycling. The route and the path type also play a major role. You can read the charge level of the battery on a practical LCD display at any time. And, as already mentioned, depending on the use, these bikes can cover a distance of up to 180 kilometres.
No. 4: E-bikes are even more fun in a group
If you are planning a group cycle tour, you should think about the type of bikes beforehand. You can balance big differences in condition with e-bikes. However, if the ability of all participants is the same, we recommend using either only e-bikes or only conventional bikes. Otherwise the performance level could be too uneven.
No. 5: The network of e-bike charging stations is impressive
Hardly any well-known cycle path can do without a charging station. This could be a hotel or inn with a charging station or charging stations long the route. Almost all cycle paths are therefore at your feet – or rather, under the pedals!
