An electric bicycle (E-Bike) is primarily a bicycle. An E-bike cannot work if you do not pedal on it. The electric assistance comes with the pedaling, to give more power to the effort already provided by the cyclist. This assistance is dosed according to the level chosen by the user, the effort he is providing, and the intrinsic parameters of the engine.
It is the assistance that is electric, not the bike or the cyclist.
The pedelec (E-bike) is not recent. It is not a bike for people who do not want to pedal. Nor is it a bike only for people who need help pedaling. Each cyclist defines his own use of the electric bicycle.
The electric bike is not new. The first prototypes were designed before the Tour de France was created. Some craftsmen made them in the 70s and some Asian countries have been using this mode of mass displacement for 20 years now. Its shape and its utility have evolved as and when technological changes and habits of cyclists, but the philosophy remains the same: everyone can ride electric bike.
ALL ABOUT THE ELECTRIC ASSISTANCE BICYCLE
The purchase of an electric bike is often motivated by a discovery, a test, even fast, which does not leave you indifferent. We can see the possibilities offered by this means of transport: more distance, on more difficult routes, with more regularity, and carrying more things.
Once the idea is validated, and in order to get the most out of it, it is important to direct your choice to an electric-assisted bike that fully corresponds to its use, while taking into account that it will evolve. Indeed, the electric bike to travel greater distances with the same effort, it is surprising to use it much more often than a traditional bike.
RIDE DOWNHILL FAST AND CLIMB UP WITH ASSISTANCE
Accessible to all, the electric mountain bike (E-MTB) will take you to discover new horizons.
EMTB allows you to climb almost any climb; With its lithium battery, it gives you autonomy and power without fail on all roads and to discover new horizons. You will then be able to enjoy new courses inaccessible until now.
HARDTAIL BICYCLES or FULL SUSPENSION
Whether in leisure or sport mode, all types of MTB exist in electric assisted version. Further, faster or stronger! But above all pure pleasure and sensations of freedom. Pedal sensor technology will adapt the assistance provided for unparalleled performance
Samedi 27 XROAD: Hard Tail equipped
Samedi 27 TRAIL: Full Suspension 140mm
Samedi 27 RACE: Full Suspension 160mm
Samedi 27 OFF: Hard Tail Sport
Samedi 27 SX: Full Suspension Long Travel 180mm
AN ASSISTANCE SENSOR THAT OPTIMIZES “PHYSICAL ACTIVITY”
As with all quality electric bicycles, you will find several types of sensors on the electric MTB market. To optimize engine performance, manufacturers have installed speed sensors, cadence sensors and torque sensors. The purpose of such equipment is to automatically adjust the assistance provided to provide the best pedaling fluency. Do not worry, the bike takes care of everything: you just have the pleasure of pedaling. Thanks to the sensor performance, the battery life is optimal. Do not be afraid of the breakdown in view of the reliability and history of the engines marketed.
WHAT BUDGET FOR AN ELECTRIC BIKE?
The electric bicycle is a means of transport sometimes daily. It must be reasoned in the annual budget: it is easy to calculate
hat an electric bicycle worth 2000 to 2500 euros can be amortized in one to two years, depending on the share of postponement of the car to the E-Bike.

ELECTRIC MTB FOR SEVERAL USES, AND SEVERAL OCCASIONS
The electric mountain bike is a powerful ally for any occasion. You will amplify the distance on your usual course and you will increase your cumulative elevation by climbing all the hills without difficulty.

The use of E-MTB does not detract from the sporting and performance side of MTB practice. By choosing this type of mountain bike, you will not be forced to abandon the performance equipment of a conventional cycle. The wide choice of the range will allow you to invest in a model that suits you with variations on hydraulic disc brakes and the quality of forks and shock absorbers. The latest generations of E-MTB follow the general trend of the bike market and now offer carbon for material to optimize the performance of the bike (weight and rigidity in particular).
To maintain its effectiveness, regular maintenance of the VAE is essential in view of the delicate conditions of this type of use. Do not forget the manufacturer’s instructions to extend the life of the engine, battery and pedal. The chain is the part subject to a maximum of constraints and which will have to be changed more quickly than on a traditional bike.
