  • How do electric bikes work?

    Electric bikes integrate a battery-powered assist, which engages the motor automatically when you start to pedal. As you pedal, you’ll feel the motor start up, seamlessly reducing the effort of pedalling. Some models will allow you to shift between levels of motor assist, providing more or less assistance depending on the level. Our electric bikes use a high-quality 250W EverDrive Motor, alongside a 36v internal battery, offering safety, power and longevity. So how fast are electric bikes? This will depend on the model, but they’ll generally have a top speed of 25 km/h. It’s also very easy to maintain lower speeds as needed throughout your journey.

  • Why use an electric bike?

    Electric bikes are great for long-distance trips or tricky terrains, allowing you to take on more difficult journeys as well as achieve greater speeds. If you plan on carrying extra weight on your bike, the motor assist will be tremendously helpful, allowing you to transport greater weight loads than you would on a normal bike. They’re useful for those who struggle with regular bike usage, and find they’re easily fatigued by the act of pedalling. Some people might wonder: does an electric bike need a license in Australia? This will depend on the model and type of electric bike, but generally, you won’t need a licence or registration for your bike. This is as long as the bike has a battery with under 250W of power, and a top speed not exceeding 25km/h. All of Progear’s electric bikes will abide by these standards, but always check the road rules in your area to ensure you’re using your bike correctly.

  • How long does an electric bike take to charge?

    This will depend greatly on the model you’re using, and the type of charging port you have. It will usually take between 4-6 hours for an empty battery to reach full charge. Check the product manual of your bike for more information.

  • Are electric bikes easier to ride? 

    Electric bikes offer the most effortless experience, as a lot of the energy exertion from pedalling is removed. They’re very accessible, and don’t take any special expertise to learn how to handle. If you can ride a regular bike, you won’t have any trouble with an e-bike.
