An electric bike is a bicycle with an attached motor used to power the vehicle, or to help with pedaling. Del Mar Bicycle Co. gives you The Best Prices on the Best Electric Bikes, Scooters, Mopeds, and Accessories. Perfect for a pedaling break, electric bikes can assist in getting across an intersection or perhaps an incline that’s a bit too much. Electric bikes utilize several different types of technology and there are a number of options, each suited to varying needs. It is a clean, green, and healthy way to get where you want to go. We offer Currie Bikes, specifically the Izip and Ezip lines, which we believe to be some of the best on the market.
Many electric bikes will use a Sealed Lead Battery. With the trends in renewable energy, the 36v9a lithium-ion battery packs used with our Enlightened electric bikes have generated a lot of interest. The highest end electric bikes use Lithium-ion batteries because lithium is the lightest of all metals, has the greatest electrochemical potential and provides the largest energy density for weight. These lithium-ion based bikes allow us to integrate our Advanced Battery Management System, which extends the life of modern lithium-ion batteries for High Performance and Light Weight power – so you can always bike further. The charge time on the lithium-ion battery is basically the same as a Sealed Lead Battery (SLA), requiring approximately 6 – 10 hours for a full charge. The electric bikes that have a lead-acid battery usually cost less.
What are the additional benefits of an Enlightened Electric Bike?
An Enlightened electric bike is an electric bike harnessing the power of the pedal and a lithium-ion battery pack. Enlightened bikes have additional features that offer the rider a modern riding experience with technological advances in suspension, seat design and motor power. The patented TMM System with “Intelligent” power assist and hub motor augment the ride on occasions when standard pedaling becomes tiresome or challenging. Enlightened bikes can reach real transportation speeds of up to 15 mph (24 km/h) and range from a distance of 23-30 Miles (38-48 km) with standard pedaling. Keep mind that rider weight, rider input, and terrain can all affect the user experience.
