Those of you who regularly take some time out for biking will agree that it is a lot more than a simple commute. The time spent in pedaling is not just a form of exercising but a form of refreshment too. I’ve come across many people who found a positive change in their lifestyle post their efforts in biking every day. Whether for work or for a casual ride downtown, biking gives you that adventurous thrill anytime and anywhere. Now that we are a part of a technological spree, it was necessary to take this form of transportation a step ahead with Electric Bikes.
But adding that enormous battery capacity isn’t profitable all the time. Especially because of the unnecessary features that make the bike bulky and often difficult to pedal over a long span of time. What if there was something that didn’t add the bulkiness to your ride but had the powers of an electric bike instead? Meet Propella Electric Bike – A bicycle that is lightweight, safe, and reliable.
Get Rid of the Bulky Form Factors!
From cheaper transportation rates to riding with less effort or help on hills, the advantages of riding an e-bike isn’t unknown to biking enthusiasts. What makes the process cumbersome is the bulky form factors. Most of the e-bikes out there do not give that natural spark at all. That’s what Propella wants to do.
These electric bikes can assist riders on hills and long commutes with a simple push of a throttle without sacrificing the look and feel of the original bicycle. You get to enjoy the benefits of a techspirational ride without losing that joyous natural feel at the same time.
Switch to a Simpler and Efficient E-Bike Experience
Coming to its features, Propella is waterproof, under 36 lbs, comes with a 20 mph top speed, has a 15-28 mile range with a 2.5 hour charge time. There is a single-speed freewheel attached to hub motor which is quiet, efficient, waterproof and maintenance free.
The battery pack used here are the Samsung 18650 Lithium Ion Cells which are also used in Tesla Model S. It is equipped with electronics that automatically prevent the cells from getting overcharged or over-discharged.
Pedal It Just Like a Normal Bicycle
The best thing about this e-bike is that you can pedal it just like a normal bicycle and use the electric assist in two different ways. This could be either with the help of the Throttle or the Pedal-Assist (PASS). In case of the throttle, the more you push down on the throttle, the more help you get from the motor.
This specific option is usually most helpful for getting back in motion after a complete stop at a red light or stop-sign. It is also useful for a quick boost of power on short but steep hills.
In case of the Pedal-Assist, the device only works when you are pedaling. There are five levels of assist that can be selected from the LCD Display. As you start pedaling the motor will kick in, and when you stop pedaling the motor turns off.
Coming in anodized blue, anodized red and matte black rim colors, the Propella electric bike is currently up on Indiegogo with a pre-order price starting from $599. If you want that natural but e-bike experience with a boost, this is the ideal option to go for! Happy Gadgeting!
