Electric Bike Motor Power and Efficiency
Motor Power and Efficiency
Our company was born in the mountains, so with steep grades, loose terrain, and heavy loads, power is often a necessity. With our fully-adjustable power levels, it's there when you need it, but when you just want to cruise efficiently under low power, our motors run at an industry-leading 93% efficiency.
The magic of motor design is achieving broad efficiency curve. While many motors run efficiently under low power, it takes serious engineering to design a motor that runs efficiently under high power, at a minimal weight. As efficiency drops under higher power output, your precious battery power gets bled off as heat in the motor.
Our motors maintain an incredible 90% efficiency at maximum power. By comparison, the still impressive Stealth Bomber runs at an efficiency of 86% under maximum power.
Need proof? Watch us drop the hammer and pass a motorcycle (supposed to be the pace vehicle) on the way to setting the pedal electric record up Pike's Peak.
