E-Cruiser Bikes FAQs
E-Cruiser Bikes have selected some of the best electric bikes in the industry. Protanium/DiavELo is highly innovative and must be to keep the lead position in the European market. They have won many awards for their patented designs. They were the first to have an integrated battery built into the frame of the bike.
What is Pedelec?
This means pedal-electric assist. The harder you pedal, the controller relays that to the motor to assist the rider. For safety reasons the power will not engage until you pedal 2 km/h.
All E-Cruiser electric bikes have the option of both throttle control and pedelec control.
Batteries have become more and more reliable. The Lithium battery on E-Cruiser bikes are made by Panasonic and come with a 2 year warranty. They can last up to 5 years and 800 full charges. When not in use they should be charged every 30 days for maintenance. To fully recharge a battery requires 3 to 4 hours.
Cost to Recharge the Batteries?
It cost about $0.10 to charge the batteries.
How Far Can I Travel on the Battery?
It depends, with the throttle your distance will be less then using pedelec. There are a number of variables that decrease your battery life.
- The higher the level on your controller the higher the draw on the battery. This will also give you greater speeds.
- The more hills you climb equals more current drawn on the battery.
- Weight of the rider, wind resistance and tire pressure also have an effect on your distance.
Do E-Cruiser Bikes Recharge while Driving?
The power system on E-Cruiser Bikes do not recharge. The regenerative systems provide very little power back to the battery, that it is not worth the cost. It is more of a selling point. Future technology may make it a worth while option.
E-Cruiser Bikes have several motor options.
- Hub Motor are available on both the E-Cruiser and DiavELo.
- Mid Drive 250 Watt powerful motor with more torque by DiavELo.
- New Shaft Drive by DiavELo.
Each bike has a control console that works together with the controller through software. The software for each bike is different. There are different power levels depending on the model of bike you purchase. The Au2Bahn has a removable controller that acts as a key for the bike. The controllers provide distance traveled, battery usage, power assist level and speed.
Can I Ride the Bike in the Rain?
Yes, both the controller and the motors are water resistant.
