What Is a Hub Motor on an E-Bike?

A hub motor is built into the wheel of an e-bike and is ideal for those who enjoy a hassle-free ride. This motor type operates independently of the bike’s gears, providing consistent power without the need for gear shifts. It's a top choice for casual riders seeking simplicity and ease in their cycling experience.

What Is a Mid-Drive Motor on an E-Bike?

A mid-drive motor is located at the bike's crank, integrating seamlessly with the bike’s gears. This configuration boosts power on hills and speed on flat surfaces, making it ideal for versatile terrains. Preferred by high-end electric bikes, a mid-drive motor enhances ride efficiency and dynamics, perfect for riders who face diverse and challenging routes.

  • Regular Mode: Ride manually without electric assistance.
  • Pedal Assist Mode: Engage the motor while pedalling for boosted power, customizable across 3,5, or 9 levels to suit your speed and style.
