  • Range: 12 to 35 miles, depending on speed, hills, and pedal assist.
  • Top speed: Up to 35 mph where allowed by law.
  • Pedal-Assist & Throttle On Demand.
  • Programmable LCD dashboard.
A 500W motor with internal 5:1 planetary gearing and clutch.

The clutch in the geared motor offers zero drag when pedaling and not engaging battery power. This motor is more efficient, resulting in increased range (especially with start/stop riding), has more starting torque, and has greater hill-climbing ability than a Direct-Drive motor of equal power rating. The motor is also smaller in diameter and 3.4 pounds lighter than the 500W direct-drive.

48V 10Ah Li-ion battery pack.
  • Frame mount battery is in a high-impact, streamlined case and can be removed for charging
  • Li-ion batteries provide a high level of performance for the duration of each discharge. Li-ion batteries have a much higher power to weight ratio than lead-acid and 5-8 times the number of charge cycles (how many times a rechargeable battery can be charged from 0–100%). The Li-ion option costs more initially, but over time, the cost-per-cycle is about half the cost of lead-acid. Li-ion packs also require less care as they can be left partially charged, and do not require immediate charging after each use. All batteries must be properly cared for during storage.

e-Lightning dashboard
Programmable LCD Dashboard
  • Proprietary Software
  • Displays Speed, Trip Distance, ODO
  • Battery indicator and Assist Setting
  • Programmable with Speed-Limiting Option
  • Customizable PAS Sensitivity Settings
e-Lightning control switch
Control switch to adjust power levels and display.
e-Lightning power-assist ring
Power assist sensor ring.

In power-assist mode the motor only operates when you pedal. There are four different levels of motor assist, controlled by a selector switch.

Twist throttle.

On-demand throttle allows using the motor from a dead start. No need to be moving before the motor will engage, unlike other systems.

e-Lightning controller
Heavy-duty 21A controller.
e-Lightning crankset
Single ring crankset with chain guard.
