Urban e-bikes with powerful mid-motor

Urban e-bikes with powerful mid-motor

Looking for an e-bike with as much power as possible, there is hardly any way around a model with a mid-mounted motor. This type of motor is still considered the benchmark for high performance, especially when it comes to the torque of the drive. What’s more, compared to motors in the rear wheel, this makes it possible to use a low-maintenance hub gear with a belt drive without any problems.To get more news about ebike for sale, you can visit official website.

Such hub gears offer fewer gears respectively bandwidth (the difference between the highest and lowest gear) than derailleur gears, but especially in combination with an e-drive this is usually quite sufficient for rides not only in the city and on weekend tours. In addition, Enviolo hub gears are increasingly being used, which do not have fixed gear steps at all. Instead, the gear ratio is adjusted continuously — in some cases even automatically and electronically controlled, which means you can talk about a real automatic transmission! Capabilities that no derailleur can compete with. And when it comes to maintenance, derailleur gears can’t keep up either: thanks to the encapsulated housing, the hub gears are well protected from external weather influences and are thus largely maintenance-free.To get more news about e bike, you can visit official website.
These characteristics also apply to the third member of the group, the belt drive: Compared to classic bicycle chains, it does not need to be greased and oiled, so it gets less dirty and does not leave greasy traces on the trouser leg. By the way, the “de facto standard” is installed on all the bikes listed here, the Carbon Drive from Gates.To get more news about electric bike, you can visit official website.

So it’s a win-win-win situation? Not quite, because e-bikes with a mid-motor often have a few disadvantages: Compared to e-bikes with compact hub motors, mid-motor models are usually heavier, the drives are louder, and the bikes look less elegant. However, you can’ t generalize this, because technical progress is also changing the cards here: for instance, the first bikes with the new Fazua Ride 60 drive system already indicate that lighter and slimmer bikes can also be combined with a powerful mid-motor in the future!
With the Electric models Ace (diamond frame) and Ivy (comfort frame trapezoidal shape) Veloretti offers two attractive e-bikes at quite a reasonable price — especially since their equipment is very extensive: The motor comes from Bafang and offers a torque of 65 Nm, the battery is removable and has a capacity of 510 Wh. A continuously variable transmission from Enviolo is installed here as the gearshift, which is also equipped with the Automatiq function and thus adjusts the transmission ratio completely automatically. Ivy and Ace are available in only one frame size and in three colors each. At 27 kg, the bikes are unfortunately very heavy.

Thanks to the non-integrated battery and the Shimano STEPS 6100 motor, the BMC Alpenchallenge AMP AL City One is a lightweight among the bikes listed here at 20.9 kg. Nevertheless, the battery with 504 Wh offers a high capacity and Shimano’s Nexus hub gears with 5 gears are used. The bike is only available with a diamond frame and in beige, but in three sizes.
The new Precede bikes with aluminum frames are Canyon’s entry into the urban bike segment. In addition to 5 and 6 models with derailleur gears, the Precede:ON 7 is also available with Enviolo’s continuously variable transmission, which is operated manually via a rotary grip on the handlebars. The motor comes from Bosch’s Performance Line (65 Nm), the battery offers a capacity of 500 Wh (small frame size) or 625 Wh (large frame size, then 200 euros more expensive!). In addition to the regular model, the Precede:ON 7 is also available as an ST (“Step Through” comfort frame). The weight is just under 25 kg, both models are available in two colors and up to four frame sizes.
Bosch Performance Line motor (65 Nm), 500 Wh battery and the manually operated, continuously variable transmission from Enviolo: these are the ingredients of the SD3 Urban from HNF Nicolai, which is equipped with a suspension fork. The bike is only available with a diamond frame – but this is still available in two frame sizes and two colors. The weight is 25.8 kg.
